Road Rage: How To Avoid It

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Why does road rage happen? Because of the traffic, a lot of drivers are hot-headed already. All it takes is a spark, like some guy suddenly cutting in front of you.

To avoid these unfortunate incidents, here are some safety tips to follow:

Tips For The Victim Of Road Rage:

Sometimes, you unknowingly make a driving mistake that causes inconvenience to another vehicle. When such an incident occurs, you could become the victim of road rage. Be very careful. You can never tell what the other driver might do to you. Some drivers actually carry guns in their car.

1. Stay cool even in the midst of reckless drivers. Be a defensive driver and show courtesy.

2. Don't meet anger with anger. Control your emotions and don’t retaliate. The angry driver might be having a bad day already. And irritating him further can cause him to become furious.

PNP Wheel of Torture: Your Luck May Run Out Soon

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I've heard about the Philippine National Police's (PNP) dreaded-by-detainees "Wheel of Torture" where punishment is given to a detainee based on outcome of the spinning multi-colored wheel.

Do you think it's a horrifying treatment to be served to the detainees? I can imagine right now how the police pokes fun of the condition of the men, mostly drug traffickers, behind this so-called detention facility located at Binan, Laguna. What is even a lot cruel is that the detention facility is not even a legally run PNP facility as claimed by being non-existent from their records as if it was kept a "secret".

Under the game, detainees were punched if the “torture wheel” stopped at “20 seconds Manny Pacman,” referring to a nickname of popular boxer Manny Pacquiao, or hung upside down if it stopped at a punishment called “30-second bat.”

Cordillera Coffee Experience: The Story Behind Their Coffees

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I attended an event at Cordillera Coffee or Cordicoffee’s advocacy, The Coffee AID Jam after braving traffic from a tourism conference in BGC. It was a night of homegrown music and coffee featuring independent musician Tao Aves and Ukelele Manila ambassadors.

Cordillera Coffee serves organically and highland grown pure Arabica coffee from Kalinga and Benguet. It has a unique taste due to the rich soil and unpolluted environment of the Cordillera region, they also have the exotic civet (alamid) coffee which is well-known in the region for strong aroma and good taste. If you are in the area it is worth the trip, they have good concoctions and great dishes such as house specialties, pastas, sandwiches, and toasts. Well-loved dishes include Chef Gene Gonzalez' Cordillera Risotto and new menu item Pinoy Kaya Toast, and home baked goodies like the Cordi tsokolate brownies and tsokasuy (chocolate with cashew) cookies, and their Tablea Arabica cupcakes.

One of the very reason why I attended is that, I’m an avid supporter of our local artists, advocacies, indigenous cultures and products and social enterprises. I heard from cordicoffee volunteers the sad fate of many cordillera coffee growers, some are exploited by businessman and not really getting the fair share, and the hardships of growing coffee in the mountains specially during rainy seasons. Coffee AID advocates fair trade and help support local coffee growers. The event is also the perfect time to sign up as a volunteer for their outreach activities like coffee tree-planting, harvest and processing, as well as community workshops.

Floy Quintos’ Ang Nawalang Kapatid Closes DUP’s 38th Season

Wazzup Pilipinas!

A musical adaptation of India’s greatest epic closes Dulaang UP’s 38th season. Ang Nawalang Kapatid, adapted from The Mahabharata by acclaimed playwright Floy Quintos, with original score by Ceejay Javier, directed and choreographed by Dexter M. Santos, is a re-telling of the epic battle between the Kaurava and Pandava families. The story focuses on the anti-hero Karna, a brave young man who must choose between loyalty to his family or to the state which made him a prince.

Ang Nawalang Kapatid was originally written as a children’s play for the Ateneo Children’s Theater and was first produced for their 2011 season. This new version allows for many more of the complexities of the original material to be dramatized. New arrangements of the original songs were created by Ceejay Javier, whose original works include “Isang Panaginip na Fili”, “Astig”, “Alex in Wonderland”, “Break Away Antigone”. He is best known as Musical Director for Atlantis Productions’ “Next To Normal”, Disney's “The Little Mermaid”, “Carrie”, “Addams Family”. As expected, the new staging will showcase Dexter Santos’ flair for images and movement as seen in his previous works “Maxie the Musical”, “Collection”, “Orosman at Zafira”.

In adapting the Indian epic, Floy Quintos has chosen to highlight the story of family and blood ties, and the conflicts that these bring about. Karna, who in Indian literature is traditionally the anti-hero, is now a young man searching for his dharma, his truth and destiny, while unaware of his true blood ties. The young and energetic cast is made up of the Dulaang UP Ensemble, with a live band. Krina Cayabyab is vocal director.

The Vhong Navarro Case: Are We Feeding You Dirty Entertainment Rather Than Balanced Well Proportioned News?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Damn! It's currently the blockbuster news that's still scorchingly hot due to more shocking revelations coming out from both parties involved....and also from third parties joining the bandwagon of extreme controversy. It has overshadowed all other news in the Philippines, even the privilege speech of almost namesake senator with the name of "Bong."

Vhong Navarro says it couldn't be rape since Deniece Cornejo and him already had a previous sexual relationship. Apparently, Deniece had performed oral sex on Vhong several days before the "attempted rape" broke out and created a resounding noise all over the Philippine archipelago.

The CCTV footages at Forbeswood Heights condo also seems to side with the declarations of Vhong seemingly making it strong that it was a planned and deliberate setup. Poor Cedric Lee and his minions which includes a Mixed Martial Arts expert and body-builder friend. You guys are the bad guys in this movie.

Now former MTV Philippines VJ, Kat Alano, enter the picture, and blows the story to a whole new level once again. While Alano never mentioned names in any of her posts, Twitter was immediately abuzz with speculation that she may have been a victim of Navarro’s advances. Her strong cryptic social media posts about rape believed to be in support of Deniece,  Kat is now widely believed to be a victim of Vhong 9 years ago.

Teen pop never fails to put in a lot of "kilig" factor to the youth of today especially the young teenage girls who's probably also into anime, Glee TV series, and similar cutesy stuff composed of sugar, spice and everything else nice.

Undoubtedly, these are exciting times for teen pop. We see several young pop idol groups sprouting left and right. But who's complaining? Fans couldn’t be so happier! The more, the merrier!!

However, some groups just stand out among the rest and one of the very few is the newest boy teen pop group that's armed with disarming cuteness and the catchiest of songs - Sugarhigh, a quintet of charming personalities. 

Sugarhigh, the newest boy group to make you fall in love, consists of Luis, Daniel, Carlos, Julius and Carl.

Let's start with Luis, the assured voice of the group, steady, talented and reliable at a young age. Daniel, who sings the hook, is all curly cuteness and is the R&B and soccer guy of the group. Meanwhile, Carlos is the low booming voice–tall, brooding, mysterious and is into drums and beat-boxing. Julius is the adorable chinito with a ready smile ready to greet everybody and an experienced model having worked at Hotdog commercials at a young age . Last but not the least is Carl who balances the group with his every guy attitude, is sporty and good looking of course.

Deniece Cornejo Makes A Statement Against Vhong Navarro

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Parang kinain niya rin ang sinabi niyang " In the field of women's rights. The right will always be right." Eh if that's what you believe in, dapat you should have filed a case against Vhong to straighten what you claim is right. Pero hindi eh, ang ginawa mo instead is , humingi ng pera kay Vhong at pinabugbog mo pa!!! Where is the "RIGHT" diyan? Mali ka na diyan girl..... at kung sa tingin mo ay rerespetuhin ka ng mga lalaki, I think you are wrong.

Who will respect a girl who invites a guy to come over to her place and drink wine and who knows what else happened......If you want to be respected, then act like somebody worth respecting!

If she's the victim, bakt hindi siya ang unang nag-react sa situation? Ano ba tayo.... patangahan lang?

Ang napanood nimyong interview is planned by the station, para lumabas na walang kasalanan si Vhong.

He clearly had the intention to rape denise at that time, naawa kami kay denise kaya binugbog namin siya, wala kayong alam sa totoong nangyari kaya wag kayong mang husga agad. Mayayaman kami aanohin namin ang 1m? Wag kayo maniwala sa mga lumalabas sa media, malakas ang kapit niyan ni Vhong sa station kaya’t kaya niyang baguhin ang istorya with the help of media. Sana pakinggan niyo ang side namin.”

Deniece Milinette Cornejo: Is She Vhong Navarro's Lady Victim or Villain?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Ang tagal ko na sa industriya, wala pa akong inagrabyado. Ginagawa ko ‘to kasi alam ko na pwedeng maulit ito. Kung sa akin nagawa ito, I’m sure sa mga maliliit na tao puwede nilang gawin. Pwedeng maulit ito," Vhong Navarro talking to Boy Abunda on "Buzz ng Bayan." - ABS-CBNnews
Sa exclusive interview ni Vhong Navarro sa "Buzz Ng Bayan," pinangalanan niya ang mga sangkot sa pang-aabusong sinapit niya.

Ang babaeng tinutukoy niya na pinuntahan niya sa condo unit nito ay nagngangalang Deniece Milinette Cornejo at ang isa sa mga nangbugbog sa kanya ay si Cedric Lee na diumano'y ex-husband ni Vina Morales. -Kapamilya Gold

GMA has also released a statement saying "This is to clarify that the complainant involved in the Vhong Navarro incident is not related to GMA Network Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon" because of a photo where Deniece captioned as " with my lolo rod of GMA7 with lolo atty. Gozum" as if meaning she is related to the big boss of GMA 7.
