Bunch of Free-flowing Random Thoughts

CALL CENTERS are also the centers of infidelity, illicit affairs, sexual immorality, vices, unwanted pregnancies, induced abortions, sexually transmitted infections and most importantly of desecrated values and ethics.

--- = ---

I can't understand why some people would prefer to wash dirty linens in public rather than do it in private.

--- = ---

On condoms & RH Bill:
The bottomline is:
we should let the institutions function the way they are established -- for DOH to support and maintain the nation's health and the church to educate the people with their morality & doctrines. They should not overlap for at the end of the day, when the nation's health fails, the church is inevitably not capable to find a solution.

--- = ---

UNWRITTEN RULES: if these are not observed by people more often,then why can't we have these written?

-- = --

The best in thing in being a man --> you get to become better, brighter and sought after even as you grow old. Your value becomes higher.

-- = --

There are two ways by which courage can be quantified: To speak when it is appropriate to be silent and, To be silent when it is proper to speak.

-- = --

I love it when people talk about me, it only means one thing: I AM FAMOUS.

-- = --

The mere fact that more people engages in pre- and extra-marital sex means that the church itself stands as a big failure in preventing immorality to happen. They as a church failed in their mission. That's why the DOH is curtailing such failure by providing another means of prevention and that is the use of barrier contraceptives.

Compromised public interest over profiteering?!

Analyzing Annabelle Rama in relation to the Kris Aquino-Ruffa Gutierrez issue

I was shocked by the news that seemingly best of friends Queen of Multimedia Kris Aquino and beauty pageant runner-up Ruffa Gutierrez had a conflict while the program they both host was still airing. Truth be told, I was not able to watch that particular episode of The Buzz for some reasons I am not in the liberty to discuss. However, to give you an idea, I was caught in something which, if not given more than enough attention, would definitely jeopardize the future of this country.

Thanks to technology, I was able to watch the said episode of The Buzz. I was also able to watch the episode of Showbiz Central where Ruffa’s mother, Annabelle Rama, who, by the way, claims to have come from a wealthy family in Cebu, but fails to act as such, uttered unnecessary harsh words directed towards Kris and her brother, Liberal Party presidential candidate Noynoy Aquino.

Annabelle, at one instance, said that Kris might be envious of Ruffa. I asked myself, “in what aspects would Kris be envious of Ruffa?” I think there are plenty of things why Kris should be envious of Ruffa. Perhaps Kris is envious of the fact that Ruffa was born to a showbiz family, her father being an actor and her mother, a former bold star slash die-hard fan. If there is any consolation though, Kris was born to a family of nation builders. Perhaps, Kris is also envious of the fact that Ruffa had to marry for convenience while Kris had to marry out of love. Perhaps Kris is envious of the fact that Ruffa had to bring her daughters to the Philippines so that she could collect child support from her estranged husband while Kris had to do away with not minding whether Philip Salvador would give child support to Josh. I guess Annabelle knows best, Kris might be indeed envious of Ruffa.

Annabelle also said that Ruffa had been constantly bullied by Kris on a weekly basis (read: The Buzz being a weekly show). Perhaps this is true. Who would know of bullying better that the bully herself. If Kris is a bully, I wonder what Annabelle is. People know for a fact that whenever any of Annabelle’s talents are dragged into controversy, Annabelle never fails to amuse the crowd with her own brand of eloquence. No one, but Annabelle, can display such a tactless eloquence fit for someone of her character.

It also bothers me how Annabelle maintains her claim that all of these were instantaneous. In an interview, Annabelle said that she was able to properly inform ABS-CBN bosses (she named at least three) that she will be pulling out Ruffa while just few minutes after the Kris-Ruffa incident, Anabelle was already on air at the rival show, ranting about the incident.

Annabell claims to be the victim by downplaying Kris’ credibility. However, we all know that Annabelle is what she claims herself to be. People know of how Annabelle stalked her then future husband. We also know how Annabelle connived with members of an award-winning body in order for her daughter Ruffa to win an acting awards. And believe me, this is no hearsay. You can check the facts with records of a trial court. Likewise, we know how Annabelle condoned his son Richard Gutierrez when the latter caused the slaughter of his personal assistant in a car crash.

Truth be told, I am sick and tired of Annabelle and Ruffa’s holier than thou attitude. Why can’t this mother and daughter tandem accept the fact that they are doing all of these to cause stir on Ruffa’s network transfer where they raked in a lot of money? Oh, I know. Because, as the song goes, truth hurts!
