The State Of The Nation Address July 28, 2014

State of the Nation Address
His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III
President of the Philippines
To the Congress of the Philippines

[Delivered at the Session Hall of the House of Representatives, Batasang Pambansa Complex, Quezon City, on July 28, 2014]

Bise Presidente Jejomar Binay; dating Pangulong Fidel Valdez Ramos; Senate President Franklin M. Drilon at mga miyembro ng Senado; Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. at mga miyembro ng Kamara de Representante; Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno at ang ating mga mahistrado ng Korte Suprema; mga kagalang-galang na kagawad ng kalipunang diplomatiko; mga miyembro ng Gabinete; mga opisyal ng lokal na pamahalaan; mga kasapi ng militar, pulis, at iba pang kawani mula sa ating unipormadong hanay; mga kapwa ko nagseserbisyo sa taumbayan; at sa aking mga Boss, ang mga minamahal kong kababayan:

Magandang hapon po sa inyong lahat.

Ito po ang aking ikalimang SONA, isa na lamang ang natitira. May kasabihan po tayo: Ang hindi lumingon sa pinanggalingan, hindi makararating sa paroroonan. Kaya marapat lang po siguro tayong magbalik-tanaw:

Noon, sa sitwasyon natin: Para bang kahibangan ang mangarap. May burukrasyang walang saysay, patong-patong ang tongpats, at bumubukol ang korupsyon sa sistema. Naturingan tayong “Sick Man of Asia.” Ang ekonomiya natin, matamlay; ang industriya, manipis. Walang kumpiyansang mamuhunan sa atin pong bansa. Ang resulta: kakarampot ang trabahong nalilikha. Dinatnan nating tigang sa pag-asa ang mamamayang Pilipino. Marami sa atin ang sumuko at napilitang makipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa. Nakayuko na lamang nating tinanggap: Talagang wala tayong maaasahan sa ating pamahalaan at lipunan.

Nalugmok nga po ang Pilipinas dahil sa labis na pamumulitika. Naglaho ang pananalig natin sa isa’t isa, humina ang kumpiyansa sa atin ng mundo, at ang pinakamasakit: Nawalan tayo ng tiwala sa ating mga sarili.

Sa puntong ito natin sinimulan ang pagtahak sa tuwid na daan.

First Christmas Without You

Photo from Pinterest

We’re only 5 months away until Christmas! Are you excited already? I am not.

I can picture already that my family and I will be really really sad when that day comes since it’ll be the first Christmas without my dear father. I remember when he was still alive, he loved celebrating Christmas (he was born on December 24), he loved to invite and entertain guests in our home and he loved to play Christmas songs on full blast very early in the morning.

I miss you everyday Tay. I miss you and I love you! Instead of being all depressed and sad on your birthday/Christmas, we will try to celebrate and remember you. Just like last year, we will put up the big Christmas tree around the corner of our living room, maybe we’ll even setup a department 56 dickens village display on one of the console tables you made, we’ll cook all your favorite food on your birthday/Christmas and invite some friends and relatives. We will try to live well and be grateful always. Please help us esp. Nanay to keep moving forward.

Malaysian Airlines Passenger Jet Has Been Shot Down Over Ukraine


Russia apparently shot down Malaysian Airlines flight #MH17 over Ukraine. The flight was carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew onboard.

Flight MH17 departed Amsterdam at 12.15pm (Amsterdam local time) and was estimated to arrive at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 6.10 am (Malaysia local time) the next day.

The passenger jet was reportedly shot down in a war-torn area of eastern Ukraine near the Russian border, killing all people aboard. The Ukrainian president and the Pro-Russia rebels in that area denied involvement in causing the crash.

Filipinos In The X Factor Australia 2014

Mary Ann Van Der Horst

Totally love her personality and stage presence. Her movements are very professional. I have a feeling she’d performed in a large crowd back here in the Philippines. Out of the 3, she’s my favorite. I couldn’t stop watching her audition video. So fun to watch. I am excited to see more of her in this show.

Justin Vasquez

Marlissa Punzalan

They’re all very talented! Wish them all the best in The X Factor Australia 2014.

Suspended OLX (formerly Account

I just recently started using OLX (formerly, never knew they’re that strict and complicated, they actually have people who monitor or quality check ad post everyday. So many restrictions like you’re only allowed to enter 700 character description on each ads (no phone, email, website included in the description). A few weeks back, I got suspended after creating 2 accounts. Well, you’re not allowed to change your username, I didn’t like the username it generated so I had to come up with a new one (I am maarte like that lols). After dealing with their techsupport for 9 days (yesss 9 dayss! so much hassle!!!), I was able to finally retrieve my account.  If you’d like to check what I am selling online, CLICK HERE

Bought New Domains From

Yeay! Bought 3 new domains from for only 297Php. Bought each domain for only 99Php! Saved me a lot of money! I was hesitant at first kasi baka naman hindi legit buti na lang I trusted google! What I like about their service is that they offer different payment methods — online and offline. I paid mine thru BDO bank deposit (via Dragonpay), very nice option to those who don’t have paypal accounts and credit cards. If you’re looking for an affordable domain provider, check out their website. They still have a promo I think 199Php per domain, it’s still quite cheap compared to ploghost’s 600Php a year. is legit! Here are the domains I registered to them:


Their website loads a little bit slow compared to my other domain providers (I also have domains from godaddy and ploghost) but it’s ok.

Setup your blogspot blog by following the easy steps illustrated HERE

Hopefully next year, their renewal fee wont be very very expensive.
