Paalam, maraming salamat


Ni Michael Lim Ubac, Juan Escandor Jr. at Jonas Cabiles Soltes ng Inquirer Southern Luzon

AGA CityBinigyang pugay ni Pangulong Aquino si yumaong Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo sa huling araw ng pambansang pagluluksa bago ito ilibing sa pagsasabing kasama na ang kalihim sa hanay ng mga pambansang bayani na gumagabay sa kanyang mga kababayan.
Nasa hanay na po si Jesse ng mga bayaning sumusubaybay sa atin mula sa kalangitan at nagbibigaylakas sa atin upang ipagpatuloy ang kanilang mga mabuting gawain. Kayat huwag na po tayong lumuha. Sa halip, magpasalamat tayo, sinabi ng Pangulo sa talumpati na paulit-ulit sinalubong ng palakpak ng mga tao sa Basilica Minore de Nuestra Seora de Peafrancia, kung saan isinagawa ang Huling Misa para sa kalihim. Sa maikling panahong narito siya sa mundo, tayo pa ang nabiyayaan ng pagkakataong makapiling si Jesse Manalastas Robredo, dinagdag ni G. Aquino na nakasuot ng itim na laso sa kaliwang braso. Paalam, Jesse. Sa ngalan ng sambayanan, maraming, maraming salamat, pagtatapos ng Pangulo. Isinagawa ng Huling Misa 10 araw matapos mamatay si Robredo, 54, at dalawang piloto nang bumagsak sa karagatan ng Masbate ang sinasakyan nilang maliit na eroplano. Napuno ng nakikiramay ang Basilica at paligid nito, katulad ng nagaganap sa pista ng Birhen ng Peafrancia.

Party-list ni Mikey maaring alisin ng Comelec


SINABI ng Commission on Elections (Comelec) kahapon na maaaring mawala ang akreditasyon ng Ang Galing Pinoy party-list group, na kinakatawan sa Kongreso ni Juan Miguel Mikey Arroyo, para sa halalan ng 2013 . Ayon kay Comelec Chair Sixto Brillantes Jr., nabigo ang Ang Galing Pinoy na magpakita ng patunay ng patuloy nitong pagsunod sa batas ng sistemang party-list. They made no appearance, they did not ask for a resetting, so most likely we will remove them from the list of accredited party-list organizations, ani Brillantes sa mga reporter kahapon. Dalawang linggo na ang nakararaan

Akala mo pista ng Peafrancia


NAGA CitySa huling gabi ng burol para sa yumaong Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, pumila ang mga nakiramay nang may 60 metro mula sa gate papunta sa altar ng Minore Basilica kung saan nakalagak ang imahen ng minamahal na Ina ng Bicol, ang Nuestra Seora de Peafrancia.
Mula pa noong siya ay 16-taong gulang, hindi nawala si Robredo sa mga prusisyon para kay Ina tuwing ikalawang Biernes ng Setyembre. Hindi niya pinalampas ang pagiging voyador, isa sa mga lalaking nagdadala sa imahen ng Birhen sa tatlongkilometrong paglilipat dito mula sa Minore Basilica sa Barangay Balatas papunta sa Naga Metropolitan Cathedral. Umabot sa 50,000 hanggang 100,000 ang mga taong dumagsa sa basilica mula alas-11 ng gabi noong Linggo hanggang alas-10 ng umaga noong Lunes, ayon kay SPO2 Randy Solano na nasa command center sa gilid ng simbahan. Ani Solano, may 1,200 pulis ang ikinalat sa loob at labas ng basilica. Sinabi niya na sarisaring bus at sasakyan ang dumating mula Laguna, Samar at iba pang lalawigan sa Bicol upang maghatid ng mga nakikiramay. Tulad ng kanilang gawain kapag pista ng Peafrancia, nagkalat ang mga vendor sa labas ng simbahan upang magbenta ng mga souvenir na may larawan ni Robredo, tulad ng mga kamiseta, ref magnet, pin, nail cutter at payong. Napuno ang bakuran ng basilica ng mga nakikiramay. Naupo ang mga ito sa mga silyang monobloc na nasa ilalim ng mga tolda kung saan may mga LED na TV na nagpapalabas ng Storyline ng ANC kung saan tampok ang dinaanan ni Robredo sa pagpasok niya sa pamahalaan. Nagpalakpakan ang mga tao sa pagtatapos ng kanyang kwento. JEJ

Balik katahimikan sa Sereno SC


Ni Christine O. Avendao at TJ Burgonio

WALA na ang Midas touch at babalik na sa Korte Suprema ang mga Ginintuang Araw kung kailan ang nanaig ay dignified silence.
Ito ang kautusang ibinaba ni Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno kahapon sa unang araw niya sa trabaho kasunod ng kanyang panunumpa noong Sabado bilang kapalit ni Renato Corona. Sa simula ng kanyang 18taong pamumuno sa Padre Faura, sinabi ni Sereno na nais

niyang ibalik ang gawi ng mga mahistrado na maririnig lang magsalita sa kanilang mga resolusyon at desisyon. If the Supreme Court is to return to its golden days, then the Chief Justice must respectfully decline all these wellmeaning requests for interview, ani Sereno sa kanyang unang pahayag sa midya.

Wisdom leads me to seek to return the Supreme Court to its days of dignified silencewhen its justices were heard when read through their writings, and when the actions of the court were best seen in their collective resolutions, aniya. By Gods sovereignty alone, the leadership mantle has been given to me, and I accept it in all humility, knowing that without the Lord God anointing my leadership, success is not possi-

ble, dinagdag ng Punong Mahistrado. Sa ilalim ng rehimen ni Corona, binasa ng tagapagsalita niyang si Midas Marquez ang buod ng mga pasya ng Hukuman, bago pa ito mailabas. Madalas ding inilalagay ang mga pasya sa website ng hukuman, isang araw matapos itong ilabas sa mga pahayagan at nakita na ng mga mambabasa ang ulat sangayon sa paglalahad ni Marquez.

Pinangakuan mga taga-Pagasa na makukuhua benepisyo nila


TINANGGAP ng mga weather forecaster kahapon ang pinakaaabangang magandang balita mula sa mga mambabatas na sinusulong ang pagsama ng mga pondo sa kanilang Magna Carta benefits sa badyet ng 2013 sa halip na kuhanin ito mula sa impok ng Department of Science and Technology (DOST). Sa pagdinig sa badyet ng DOST, sinabi ng mga mambabatas na dapat nakapaloob sa badyet sa isang taon ang mga benepisyo ng mga empleyado ng Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), lalo pa at inaasahang papasok sila umulan man o umaraw. Para sa 2013, aabot sa mahigit P700 milyon ang Magna Carta benefits ng mga empleyado ng DOST. Kabilang sa benepisyo ang hazard pay, longevity pay at ibang mga allowance. Nauna nang pumalag ang Pagasa weathermen sa pagkaantala sa paglabas ng mga benepisyo. Agad dinalaw ni Pangulong Aquino ang mga kawani ng Pagasa at tiniyak sa kanila na makukuha nila ang mga benepisyo na naunang binawi dahil sa mga bagong alituntunin sa badyet. Sinabi rin ni Budget Secretary Florencio Abad na matitiyak ang pagpopondo sa mga benepisyo sa 2013 at isasama ito sa badyet. Sinabi kahapon ni Nueva Vizcaya Rep. Carlos Padilla na dapat taasan ang sweldo ng mga espesyalista sa panahon dito upang hindi sila maakit sa mga trabaho sa ibayong-dagat na may mas malaking sahod. I believe we have a problem with salary standardization and I believe this is one of culprits. But if we cant address that, we can at least compensate them with benefits they are entitled to receive, ani Padilla. Sinalubong ng masigabong palakpakan ng mga empleyado ng DOST ang pahayag ni Padilla. Leila B. Salaverria

Makipag-ugnayan kang muli sa numero ng telepono na natanggap mo mula sa mensahe ng INQUIRER LIBRE. Maraming salamat po.

NAGA CityPatuloy na mabubuhay si Interior Secretary Jesse M. Robredo, kahit sa araw ng kanyang cremation. I will not say goodbye because I know that you will never leave us and will always be in our midst, anang biyuda ni Robredo, si Maria Leonor o Leni, sa pagtanggap sa posthumous Philippine Legion of Honor na ginawad dito bago binigay ni Pangulong Aquino ang eulogy niya sa Peafrancia Basilica Minore dito kahapon.
You are now back home where you truly belong. Rest well. We will love you forever, ani Leni. Ginawad ng Pangulo kay Robredo ang pinakamataas na parangal na hindi nangangailangan ng pahintulot ng Kongreso makaraan ang Misa sa pagtatapos ng walong-araw na burol dito at sa Malacaang sa Maynila. Nakuha ang mga labi ni Robredo sa ilalim ng dagat sa Masbate City, tatlong araw makalipas ang pagbagsak ng eroplanong sinasakyan niya noong Agosto 18. In behalf of my children, my brother and sisters-in-law, and our entire family, I accept this

Legion of Honor award with deep and respectful gratitude. This award recognizes my husbands achievements in public service, an affirmation of his life and work, ani Leni. I am honored. Our entire family is honored. If Jess were here with us today, I know he would shy away from excessive praise. He might find all the fuss, pomp and pageantry a little uncomfortable. If we could hear Jess speak, I know he would be saying, This is too much, aniya. But Jess, just this one time, allow us to celebrate your life in the way we think you deserved to be honored. You are home now. You are back where you truly belong. Rest well, we will love you forever.

He came while I was still in a relationship
self what it is you truly feel for your ex-boyfriend. If you dont love him anymore then just tell him so. Dont let him wait for you if you dont have any plans of accepting him again. There is no point in taking him back if your heart belongs to John now because you will just make yourself miserable if you force yourself into a relationship where your heart isnt in it. You and John, on the other hand share a stronger passion for each other. You are free now but he is still committed to his girlfriend and that doesnt make your situation any different from that of your ex boyfriends where one is in love with a person who is in love with someone else. Nelle, no matter how unacceptable the outcome may be, you have to be honest with what you feel. Tell John you love him without demanding him to return it. Give him time to sort out his own feelings and prepare to accept whatever he decides to do. If he chooses his girlfriend over you then whatever he did to you was just born out of a strong physical attraction and probably has very little emotional foundation. But, if he chooses to be with you then it could probably mean that he is willing to take one bold and courageous step to leave his girlfriend and follow what his heart dictates. Nelle, the search for love is like a game. In our quest to find it we sometimes hurt people. In our desire to keep it , we sometimes hurt ourselves. Let us all remember that we should not be too quick in making decisions just because our hearts tell us to. There is a right time and place for everything to those who patiently wait. More than a feeling, love is decision. It is a choice that we commit our whole lives to and fittingly, a choice that we have to be very careful in making. Goodluck to you Nelle, and I hope you will find your place in the heart of the man you truly love. Godbless and I wish you well.

DEAR Joe, Just call me Nelle, 27, I work at an outsourcing company here in Makati. It began when I met John. Weve been working in the same company but the only time we met was when he got transferred to our department. I was in a relationship then and didnt think this would happen.
Our officemates tease him of having a crush on me. They catch him staring at me and I must admit that I have my eyes on him too but I know Im committed. One time, my close officemates decided to go out. While everyone was having fun singing, we were talking and he was giving me tips for my upcoming interview. He had to talk directly into my ear cause it was noisy and suddenly I felt a kiss on cheek. I couldve have slapped him, but I just closed my eyes. We were in my friends car after and I asked him why he kissed me. He said he likes me. I leaned on him and he kissed me again, this time on my lips and I kissed back. It felt wonderful. John admitted that he liked me long before I met him, he just never had the courage to introduce himself. When John and I became close, my relationship with my boyfriend started to get worse. We were already having problems long before John came into the picture because hes possessive. My interview came and I didnt get the position I was hoping for. John stayed with me at the time and lifted my spirit. One day he asked me to go to dinner to his place and we admitted how special we are to each other. A few months ago, when I couldnt stand the demands and jealousy of my boyfriend, I decided to end our relationship. Up to now, John and I still keep this thing going. I dont want to talk to him about it because Im scared of what I might hear. That he cant be with me because of his girlfriend. I thought what I felt for him was just liking but as days passed,

Invest on educational toys


F
OR PARENTS, no sight is more gratifying than seeing ones child having the time of his life by merely playing: pretending to be a superhero; or building, breaking and rebuilding colorful blocks. There is no limit to their imagination as to what they could build: be it a house or an imagined colossal structure. Just hearing their innocent laughter, glee and excitement is enough to make a parents day.
low them to interpret sensory information while playing, as well as expand their ability to reason and solve problems. Everything a baby learns during the first year of his life starts with the senses. In fact, sensory stimulation actually lights up key areas of a babys brain. It is thus important for a parent to choose a babys toys wisely and pick only ones that stimulate the newborns sense and development right from the start. From 6 months to 2 and a half years of age, it is important to bring out the best in the baby or toddler. This could be done by encouraging them to play, Thats why it is important for parents to invest on educational toystoys that enhance a childs development by allowing his imagination to soar, expand his currently limited world, and even prepare him for leadership in the future. These toys however, should be appropriate to his age and development. Among the learning benefits children ought to derive from their toys are creativity and imagination, fine motor skills, reasoning and problem-solving. Manipulating their toys would help them develop muscle movement and hand-to-eye coordination. These toys will also keep them mentally active, allearn and discover to stimulate their imagination and senses and introduce age-appropriate concepts such as letters, numbers, shapes, colors, sounds and textures. It is equally important that they develop their mental and physical abilities at this stage in their lives. When children reach preschool, toys ought to engage their brains as they learn basics like spelling, language skills, math and so much more. Motion-activated educational gaming systems encourage them to learn and interact with their favorite characters, as it is easier for them to learn if they are familiar with or really like a particular cartoon character like Dora the Explorer or Spongebob. As children grow older, they learn faster when they have interactive school essentials such as phonics, letters, numbers, spelling and letter writing. Faux laptops for instance usually offer superior-quality and appropriate activities so the child could progress confidently in various fields of learning. Nowadays, there are cool, aspirational and inspiringalbeit age-appropriatecomputers for kids aged 4-10 for curriculumrelated learning. There are animated storytelling devices that enable kids to watch the story and read games. Some of them even carry a story dictionary which lets children check the meaning of difficult words. Sometimes, they come with parent-friendly extras like reading records, website-based progress trackers and downloadable content. There even are handheld educational video gaming systems that are finger touch-sensitive and have easy-slide QWERTY boards. Take note that advanced learning through educational toysmodified with fun and gamesare good foundations for your childs early development and future role as a leader. Among the products parents could trust are Mega Bloksa family of quality-trusted brands. Mega Bloks has building blocks targeted to children aged 6-24 months (Maxi), 3+ years (Mini), as well as for kids in preschool (Micro). VTech Baby toys for newborns to 3-year-olds stimulate the senses and interest in different concepts such as textures, sounds, shapes and colors.

Beatboxing beauty queen


Queneerich Rehman dreams of becoming a singer
By Dolly Anne Carvajal
In fact, one of my dreams is to become a singer.

Controversial judge
There was grumbling about the choice of one judge in a beauty contest during the fiesta held last weekend in a city in Western Mindanao. The judge, a stunning TV personality, is rumored to be the current love interest of a married lawmaker, who represents one of the citys districts. Concerned citizens appealed to the fiesta organizers to replace the judge, but their request was ignored. Beauty had better wake up before things get ugly!

Show biz crush, beau VEN if Queneerich Rehman didnt bag show biz the next the Miss World title in China, shes still for So, is Yup, Im willing tostop her? try in high spirits. hosting, she says. If I get a
The experience was priceless, she says. I made many friends during my month-long stay in China. Until now, I am still in touch with Miss Colombia, Miss Venezuela, Miss Indonesia and Miss US Virgin Islands. Doesnt she feel like it was sort of a hometown decision since Miss China won? I refuse to look at it that way, she says. Perhaps she was just luckier that day. But I feel a bit disappointed that I didnt win Miss Talent. Almost all the girls in the pageant and the viewers thought I would win since I did beatboxing, which was unusual for beauty queens to do in the talent portion. Queneerich has been into beatboxing since high school. Ive always been musically inclined, she says. chance to act, I hope to be teamed up with Daniel Matsunaga. Its a harmless crush, though. Even my boyfriend is aware of it. She speaks highly of her beau, Jun, a bodybuilder. Hes always been supportive, she beams. He even served as my trainer to get me in my best shape for the pageant. We have marriage plans already. If and when he proposes, I want it to be extra-ordinary. Queneerich is happy with her king. So, with or without a title, she will always be on top of the world!

B-day boy
To celebrate his birthday, Ogie Alcasid held a golf tournament Monday at the Capitol Hills Golf Club. All proceeds will go to victims of the recent floods through the Kapuso

Foundation. Afterwards, Ogie hosted a get-together for his close friends at Dencios. The birthday boy is ecstatic about the A rating that his movie, I Do Bidoo Bidoo, got from the Cinema Evaluation Board. After the recent calamity, a feel-good movie like this is what we need, he says. Its a tribute to the timeless music of APO. What can he say about his much talked-about bed scene with Eugene Domingo in the movie? Its hilarious because Uge and I were really into it, he gushes. And the choreography is one of the funniest things Ive ever done. Ogie is one person whos out to spread cheer on- and offcam. He may go laughing all the way to the bank but he heeds the cry for help of people all over.

No problem?
Even if Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Andersons budding romance got thwarted, I just know that they wont have communication problems since they both are Globe-connected. Trust me.

Julia herself has revealed in interviews that indeed Enchong is courting her. Pero, since Julia is only 17, hindi pa siya puwedeng ligawan. Pero Enchong is willing to wait for her daw. Ayon kay Julia, na kay Enchong na ang lahat ng good qualities of a potential boyfriend. So, well see. Things are really working out for the two young stars own careers. I'm sure if down the road, they decide to be more than friends, the whole world of showbiz will support them. But for now, career muna bago ang love life. It can wait and hopefully, so can Enchong.

The two heartthrobs playfully joked around with Vice about their achievements in school and other activities. Nakakaloka ang paramihan ng backflip at ang cute nila sumasayaw.

Ni Jasmine W. Payo

INULDUKAN ng Sandugo-San Sebastian ang kanilang matagumpay kampanya sa first round matapos durugin ang Far Eastern University, 25-8, 25-23, 25-13 kahapon sa Shakeys V-League Open sa Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

Hindi nakalaro si Nene Bautista sa Sandugo dahil sa masakit na tuhod. Everyone has been stepping up, sabi ni Sandugo coach Roger Gorayeb.

May 14 puntos si Thai ace Jeng Bualee upang pahabain ng ng Lady Stags sa limang laro ang kanilang winning streak. Tulad ng Sandugo-SSC ay winalis ng Cagayan Valley-Perpetual ang Philippine Navy, 2414, 25-14, 25-9, sa unang laro. Umiskor si Sandra delos Santos ng 19 puntos upang tapusin

ng Rising Suns ang first round na may 3-2 kartada. We hope we can sustain this, sabi ni coach Mike Rafael. Tinulungan si Bualee ng kapwa-Thai na si Utaiwan Kaensing.Umiskor si Utaiwan ng 13 puntos samantalang may siyam puntos sina Suzanne Roces at Joy Benito.

MOA sa China palpak


Ni June Navarro
DAHIL sa hindi pagkakaunawaan sa Scarborough Shoal, hindi gumagalaw ang memorandum of understanding sa pagitan ng China at Pilipinas. Ang MOA ay tungkol sa pagsasanay ng mga atletang Pinoy sa ilalim ng pinakamahuhusay Chinese coaches. Gagawin sana ang pagsasanay sa mga bagong palaruan sa China. Sinabi ni Philippine Sports Commission chairman Richie Garcia na hindi tinutupad ng China ang MOA. The MOU is still in effect. Were trying to communicate with our counterpart on how they can accommodate our athletes, and we have been getting a slow response, sabi ni Garcia. Dahildito ay susubukan ng PSC na kausapin ang Russia upang tulungan ang Pilipinas.

US OPEN
DINISPATSA ni world number one Roger Federer (kaliwa) si Donald Young ng Estados Unidos, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 sa simula ng kampanya Lunes sa US Open. Tulad ni Federer ay matagumpay rin ang unang laro ni Kim Clijsters ng Belgium na pinabagsak si Victoria Duval, 6-3, 6-1. Limang beses ng nag-kampeon si Federer sa torneo ngunit naniniwala siyang si Serbian Novak Djokovic ang paborito ngayong taon. I still think Novak is the favorite for the title coming in here. He's the defending champion, he's probably won more hard court titles than anyone in the last few years and he also beat me here in the last two years. INQUIRER WIRES
