THE Liberal Party-led senatorial
slate now has the backing of 193
of the 236 districts nationwide
against the United Nationalist Al-
liance of Vice President Jejomar
Binay after talks with the National
Unity Party to join the coalition of
the LP-NPC-NP began Wednes-
day, an official said Thursday.
“We began the talks on Wednes-
day with no less than LP presi-
dent Mar Roxas II leading the
talks,”Dasmariñas City Rep. Elpi-
dio Barzaga Jr., NUP vice president,
told the Manila Standard.
“The coalition will support the
senatorial slate of the administra-
tion but agreed to declare the local
politics as sona libre [free zones]
or they will be left to slug it out.”
Barzaga made the statement
even as Senator Loren Legarda, a
member of the Nationalist People’s
Coalition, on Thursday confirmed
that the United Nationalist Alliance
had long ago invited her to join its
senatorial slate, but that she had yet
to receive any similar invitations
from the ruling Liberal Party.
She said it would be fine with
her if she ran under the UNA or
the Liberal Party.
Barzaga said the principle of
the “equity of the incumbent” was
also dropped as it would “compli-
cate things and might pose as a
problem.”
However, those who would run
unopposed would automatically
become the “common candidate”
of the coalition, he said.

THE head of the House of Representatives said on
Thursday they will pass the Reproductive Health
bill with or without recommendations from the
technical working group composed of the mem-
bers of Congress and the Catholic Church tasked to
break the impasse on the highly-divisive measure.
House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. said they
would proceed to the period of amendments and pos-
sibly approval on second reading of House Bill 4244
when Congress resumed session in October.
“My hopes are that we can have a definite bill
that can be voted on yes or no. As it is there is no
bill to talk of because it’s still subject to amend-
ments and we don’t know how it looks,” Belmonte
told reporters.

MALACAÑANG is seeking
the early retirement of National
Police chief Nicanor Bartolome
but the police general will not
replace Interior Undersecretary
Rico Puno, who resigned this
week after being linked to an
arms deal anomaly, presiden-
tial spokesman Edwin Lacierda
said on Thursday.
Lacierda said an early re-
tirement for Bartolome would
give his successor enough time
to prepare for the mid-term
elections in May next year and
ensure peaceful voting in all
the regions of the country.
But highly placed sources in
the National Police said Barto-
lome, who was assured by Mr.
Aquino of being appointed to
the post vacated by Puno, was
pushed aside because Mar Roxas,
the in-coming Interior Secretary,
AN OFFICIAL said Thursday
Malacañang wanted Senator
Juan Ponce Enrile to remain as
Senate President following his
revelation of a plot to oust him
from that post last month.
“So far, yes [we want Enrile
to stay on as Senate President].
We’ve seen a very healthy re-
lationship with the Senate,”
presidential spokesman Edwin
Lacierda.
“This [coup against Enrile]
is not something that the Lib-
eral Party is involved with.”
Lacierda said Enrile had
been a good and effective ally
in the administration’s priority
measures “except for the sin
tax and Reproductive Health”
bills.
“We’re hoping that the sin
tax and the RH would be re-
solved as soon as possible,”
Lacierda said.

THE losing bidders and a law-
maker on Thursday disputed
claims by the Philippine Na-
tional Police that resigned Inte-
rior Undersecretary Rico Puno
was not involved in the deal to
buy 60,000 Glock pistols for
P1 billion.
Agham Rep. Angelo Pal-
mones and Peter Go Cheng of
Kolonwel Trading said Puno
had presided over one bidders’
meeting and was never absent
from any bid conference.
“Contrary to claims of the
PNP and the Palace that the
P1-billion deal was transparent
and in order and that Puno had
nothing to do with it, Puno was
the one calling the shots and
was deeply
involved in this mess since
Day One of the bidding pro-
cess,” Palmones told the Ma-
nila Standard.

BEIJING said on Thursday
that the renaming of the South
China Sea to West Philippine
Sea of the Republic of the
Philippines “will not change”
China’s sovereignty over the
disputed waters.
In a statement, China’s
Foreign Affairs spokesman
Hong Lei maintained that the
“South China Sea” had been
a geographic name univer-
sally recognized by the inter-
national community.
“The action of the Philip-
pines side will not change the
fact that China enjoys indis-
putable sovereignty over the
islands in the South China Sea
including Nansha [Spratlys]
and Huangyan [Scarborough
Shoal].
SANAA—Chanting “death to
America,” hundreds of protest-
ers angered by an anti-Islam
film stormed the US Embassy
compound in Yemen’s capital
and burned the American flag on
Thursday, the latest in a series of
attacks on American diplomatic
missions in the Middle East.
The protesters breached the
usually tight security around the
embassy and reached the com-
pound grounds but did not enter
the main building housing the
offices. Once inside the com-
pound, they brought down the
US flag, burned it and replaced
it with a black banner bearing
Islam’s declaration of faith--
”There is no God but Allah.”
Before storming the grounds,
demonstrators removed the em-
bassy’s sign on the outer wall,
set tires ablaze and pelted the
compound with rocks.
It was similar to an attack on
the US Embassy in the Egyptian
capital of Cairo Tuesday night.
A mob of Libyans also attacked
the US consulate in the eastern
city of Benghazi on Tuesday,
killing American Ambassador
Chris Stevens and three other
Americans.
In Manila, the Foreign Affairs
Department said Thursday it will
step up security to all diplomatic
and consular missions following
Sevens’ killing.
“The [department] is closely
coordinating with police and law
enforcement agencies in the Phil-
ippines to step up security and
ensure that the diplomatic and
consular missions of other coun-
tries are protected to prevent any
attacks on these establishments,”
Foreign Affairs spokesman Raul
Hernandez said.
In Washington, the Obama
administration, roiled by the
first killing of a US ambassador
in more than 30 years, is inves-
tigating whether the assault on
the US consulate in Libya was
a planned terrorist strike to mark
the anniversary of the Sept. 11,
2001, attacks and not a sponta-
neous mob enraged over an anti-
Islam YouTube video.

SENATOR Miriam Defensor Santiago on Thursday said the Palace and her
fellow senators might torpedo today’s scheduled hearing on President Beni-
gno Aquino III’s close friend and shooting buddy, former Interior undersec-
retary Rico Puno, who resigned Tuesday amid allegations of irregularities in
two gun contracts he approved.

In a statement, the senator
said not a single member of her
committee, made up of 12 other
senators, had confirmed atten-
dance for Friday’s hearing, with
many of them saying they would
be out of town.
Puno, who is at the center of the
investigation, had not confirmed his
attendance either, she said.
If there was no quorum today,
she added, Malacanang must have
put pressure on the senators to steer
clear of the case.
“If it happens, such a delib-
erate boycott will indicate that
even my fellow senators who are
members of my committee do not
support my initiative,” said San-
tiago, chairman of the committee
onconstitutional amendments, re-
vision of codes and laws.
She said she would raise a pro-
test, but was considering how best
to do it.

Mall registration. People with disability recently flocked to the SM malls
to register for the coming 2013 mid-term elections. The SM malls were
cited by Elections Commissioner Sixto Brillantes and Noli Agcaoili of the
Philippine Foundation for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled as ideal venues
for registering people with disability.
The suicide rate from 1984 to
2005 increased from 0.46 to sev-
en out of every 200,000 men. On
the other hand, it jumped from
0.24 to two for every 200,000
women.
The statistics showed the in-
creasing suicide rate in the Phil-
ippines even as the World Health
Organization, alarmed by the
more than 600 suicides a day or
about 800,000 suicides world-
wide each year, called on its
member-states in the Western Pa-
cific Region, including the Phil-
ippines, to intensify their efforts
to reduce the number of people
killing themselves.
Suicide rate is up worldwide
By Macon Ramos-Araneta
THE suicide rate among Filipinos has
gone up in the last 21 years, with the
majority of cases involving young
people aged 24 years and below,
records from the National Statistics
Office show.
The studies conducted by Di-
nah Nadera, a psychiatrist and
an associate professor of the UP
Open University, who is working
on suicide prevention strategies,
showed that in most instances, a
person who committed suicide
did so during summer or in the
morning when all family mem-
bers had left for work or school,
leaving the house empty.
“This is the time when people
usually leave the house and go to
work and this person who wants
to die goes back when no one is
home and carries out the suicide
act when there is no one there,”
she said.
A study of around 300 cases
collected from the records of
hospitals and the police in 2008
and 2009 showed that the major-
ity of suicides were carried out
at home during summer, particu-
larly during the Lenten Season
when Catholics observed fasting,
prayer and penitence.
“Of course, this is based on
findings from selected cases. We
are not saying that this is the gen-
eral trend for suicide and attempt-
ed suicide,” Nadera said.
The study also showed that
hanging ranked No. 1 as the
method for committing suicide,
followed by strangulation and
suffocation.
Those who tried to kill them-
selves but survived, the method
used was self-poisoning, and
mainly the ingestion of silver
cleaner. The others exposed
themselves to unspecified chemi-
cals and noxious substances.
Nadera said the causes for
suicide were depression, low in-
come and unemployment, and
medical conditions such as heart
disease and cancer.
WHO regional director for the
Western Pacific Shin Young-soo
says effective treatments exist, and
people at risk--those with men-
tal disorders and substance-abuse
problems--should receive profes-
sional attention and follow-ups.
“Every year, about 800,000
people die by their own hand,”
Shin said.
“About 225,000 of these
deaths--or more than a quarter of
the worldwide total--occur in the
Western Pacific Region.”
Anger...
President Barack Obama
declared in a White House
appearance that the US
would “work with the Libyan
government to bring justice”
those who killed Stevens
and three other Americans.
The attack on the Benghazi
consulate was “a planned,
coordinated, well-executed
military-style even,” House
Intelligence committee
Chairman Mike Rogers said.
In a show of force, the
Pentagon moved two war-
ships to the Libyan coast.
In Egypt, protesters were
clashing with police near the
US Embassy in the capital
Cairo for the third day in a
row.
The violence has raised
worries that further protests
could break out around the
Muslim world as anger
spreads over the movie.
Yemeni security forces
who rushed to the scene
fired in the air and used tear
gas to disperse the demon-
strators and were eventu-
ally able to drive them out
of the compound. It was not
immediately clear whether
anyone was inside the em-
bassy at the time of the at-
tack.
The Yemeni Embassy in
Washington condemned the
attack and vowed to ensure
the safety of foreign diplo-
mats and to step up security
measures around their mis-
sions in the country.

tors Franklin Drilon, Panfilo

Marcos Jr., and Aquilino Pi-
mentel III. Senate President
Pro Tempore Jinggoy Estrada,
Senate Majority Leader Vicen-
te Sotto III and Senator Alan
Peter Cayetano are ex-officio
members.
Senate President Juan Ponce
Enrile, who said Santiago’s
investigation might impinge
on the Executive department’s
jurisdiction, said he would not
be at today’s hearing because
he had a previous commit-
ment.
Under the Senate rules, at
least two senators must be
present to form a quorum at a
committee hearing.
Earlier, Santiago said if
Puno stayed away, she would
compel him to testify through
a subpoena.
“If the Senate President
refuses to sign he subpoena,
in effect he will disapprove
the committee recommen-
dation, which is not nor-
mal,” she said.
She also said if Puno were
absent, it would “show that
he is a craven coward, that all
charges against him are prob-
ably true, and that he is thumb-
ing his nose at the Filipino
public.”
Justice Secretary Leila de
Lima said Thursday she had
already informed Santiago’s
panel that she would be unable
to testify on Puno’s attempt to
secure the condominium unit
of the late Interior Secretary
Jesse Robredo, who died in a
plane crash Aug. 18.
She said in a text message
that she had meetings at the
Palace Friday, and had no
authority from the President
to appear before the Senate.
De Lima, who sealed Robre-
do’s offices and condominium
unit, said she did not take any
documents.
“The only instruction of the
President was to secure the of-
fices, to seal the offices so that
no document could be taken
out. We still do not know what
these documents are,” she said.
Earlier, reports speculated
that Puno had tried to break
into Robredo’s condominium
to obtain documents from an
ongoing investigation into a
contract to buy assault rifles
for the police.
But De Lima said she felt
the issue had been blown out
of proportion because it in-
volved Puno.
With Rey E. Requejo
Palace...
But he said the non-passage
of the two measures was not a
cause for the Liberal Party to
move against Enrile.
Enrile has said a number of
senators are unhappy with the
way he has been running the
Senate’s affairs, particularly the
allocation of the budget and po-
sitions in the chamber.
“There are always people
who are unhappy with the lead-
ership of anybody,” Enrile said.
On Wednesday, Senator Panfi-
lo Lacson said a coup to oust Sen-
ate President Juan Ponce Enrile
was possible if the four senators
who were members of the Lib-
eral Party and the eight members
of the Nacionalista Party and its
allies coalesced, but that would
not happen due to the lack of the
“element of surprise.”
“When I heard that report
[the supposed coup against En-
rile], all one need to do is im-
mediately come out with his
calculator and see the current
political landscape here, so I
had my own count, Lacson said.
“If the eight NPs and their al-
lies conspire or coalesce...with
the four LPs, there will be 12.
They just need to get one who’s
not an ally to have...13.”
The members of the ruling
Liberal Party in the Senate are
Franklin Drilon, Ralph Recto,
Francis Pangilinan and Teofisto
Guingona.
Those belonging to the Nacio-
nalista Party are Senators Manny
Villar, Alan Peter Cayetano and
Pia Cayetano, Antonio Trillanes
IV and Ferdinand “Bongbong”
Marcos. Their allies are Miriam
Defensor-Santiago of the Peo-
ple’s Reform Party, Joker Arroyo,
an independent, and Loren Le-
garda of the Nationalist People’s
Coalition.
But the question, Lacson
said, was who would be the
principal or who would be in-
stalled to replace Enrile. Joyce

Ramos-Araneta
House...
The Lower House officially
ended the debates on the measure
last month and was scheduled to
go into a period of amendments.
But anti-RH lawmakers, mostly
from the majority party, side-
tracked the bill by delivering long
privilege speeches on floods and
other issues.
At the Senate, the counterpart
measure met the same fate. The
measure is yet to go through the
period of amendments, which can
go on indefinitely.
The Senate’s most vocal anti-
RH proponents are led by Senate
President Juan Ponce Enrile and
Majority Floor Leader Senator Vi-
cente Sotto III, whom Senator Pia
Cayetano, a co-author of the bill in
the Senate, accused of deliberately
delaying the passing of the bill.
So far, Belmonte said, there is
no certainty yet on whether or not
the technical working group that
will propose a compromise ver-
sion of the measure would push
through with the process.
He said there were no other sec-
tors other than the members of the
Catholic Church who have ex-
pressed their willingness to listen
to the explanation of the advocates
of the responsible parenthood bill.
Belmonte said that the propo-
nents of the RH bill would want a
version that is acceptable to all.
Earlier, House Majority Leader
and Mandaluyong Rep. Neptali
Gonzales and Deputy Majority
Leader and Marikina Rep. Miro
Quimbo urged supporters of the
bill in Congress to show their guts
by providing not only “moral and
spiritual support” but also “physi-
cal” support for the immediate pas-
sage of the bill.
The two leaders said the dead-
lock over the RH bill would con-
tinue if the proponents themselves
failed to show strong conviction.
Renaming...
“The South China Sea has been
for a long time a geographic name
universally recognized by the
international community, and is
widely accepted by countries all
over the world and by internation-
al organizations such as the Unit-
ed Nations,” the statement said.
Beijing’s reaction came on the
heels of a similar statement from
Taipei, which rejected Manila’s
claims of “historical and interna-
tional law over the South China Sea.
Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign
Affairs said Spratlys [Kalayaan Is-
land Group], the Paracel Islands, the
Macclesfield Bank, and the Pratas
Islands as well as their surrounding
waters, sea beds and subsoil “are all
inherent parts of the territory of the
Republic of China”.
Taiwan, one of five countries
which are claiming parts of the
contested waters, also reiterated
that it upheld the basic principle
of “safeguarding sovereignty,
shelving disputes, peace and reci-
procity, and joint exploration and
willing to work with other claim-
ant countries.”
Manila, however, does not main-
tain diplomatic relations with Tapei
because of the “One China Policy,”
which says diplomatic ties should
be maintained only with China and
only economic ties are kept with
Taipei.
On Sept. 5, Benigno Aquino
III President Aquino signed Ad-
ministrative Order 29, which of-
ficially renamed the South China
Sea as West Philippine Sea in as-
serting the country’s rights over
its exclusive economic zone, or
the 200 nautical miles area facing
the western side of the sea.
The order immediately drew mixed
reactions from several lawmakers.
On Thursday, Senator Panfilo
Lacson added his voice to those
who had criticized Aquino for re-
naming the area.
Lacson warned against a possi-
ble backlash from China, pointing
out that there was already a “lot of
saber rattling’ on the issue.
“If China will react to this, how do
we get back at them?” asked Lacson
who added that it was better if the
government did the AO “quietly.”
But Senators Ferdinand Mar-
cos Jr. and Loren Legarda said the
renaming of the South China was
not a big issue.
“We stopped calling it South
China Sea. We started calling it
West Philippine Sea. But all our
claims dated back in the time of
my father [the late President Fer-
dinand Marcos]. All our claims
were already there. All the claims
have remained,” Marcos said.
Senator Legarda agreed
“We’ve been calling our area of
the South China sea West Philip-
pine Sea for over a year. Whatever
administrative order has been is-
sued is just an affirmation of what
we have been saying. We are sim-
ply asserting our sovereign rights
over what is rightfully ours.”
NUP...
an NP stalwart, said the same
conditions and parameters were
also discussed with their respec-
tive parties.
Gatchalian said what remained
unresolved was the condition that
the NPC and NP senatorial can-
didates must not share the stage
with the UNA even if they were
adopted by Binay’s camp.
The NPC will be fielding Legar-
da and Cagayan Rep. Juan Ponce
Enrile Jr. whose father and name-
sake, Senate President Juan Ponce
Enrile, is with the Binay camp.
The NP is fielding former Las
Piñas City Rep. Cynthia Villar,
wife of NP president Senator
Manuel Villar, and Senators An-
tonio Trillanes IV and Alan Peter
Cayetano.
“We are still discussing. We
don’t want to preempt the deci-
sion,” Gatchalian said.
“One thing for sure, [the NPC]
will support Senator Loren and
Congressman Jack whatever the
decisions will be.”
Gatchalian, Remulla and Bar-
zaga said they expected the co-
alition to be forged by next week
after common problems had been
threshed out.
Apart from Roxas, the LP top
brass who were involved in the
talks with the NUP were House
Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr.,
House Majority Leader Neptali
Gonzales II, Cavite Rep. Joseph
Emilio Abaya, and Budget Secre-
tary Florencio Abad.
The NUP panel was led by
Barzaga.
Barzaga said the meeting was
held in the Balay headquarters,
owned by Roxas, in Cubao.
Camarines Sur Rep. Rolando An-
daya Jr. said the 22-member Lakas, a
member of the majority coalition in
the House, had yet to decide whether
or not to join the coalition.
As of Wednesday, the ruling Lib-
erals had 90 seats in the House, the
NPC had 49, the NP had 25, and
the NUP ha 29 or a total of 193 dis-
tricts for the coalition. With Macon

Bidders...
the P1-billion contract to Trust
Trade and Glock Asia Pacific,
pending investigations by the Sen-
ate and the House.
At the July 5, 2012 meeting, Puno
waived the documentary require-
ments to favor Trust Trade and its
partner, which submitted “dubious
documents,” Cheng said.
Palmones said the losing bidders
also informed him that Puno was
present from the first day of the pre-
bidding process to the actual bid-
ding events.
“What transparency? The losing
bidders had been complaining and
questioning Puno’s presence in all
the bidding conferences, where he
kept reminding them and mention-
ing that President Aquino knew
about this deal and he wanted this
and that”,” Palmones said.
In the July 5 meeting, Puno in-
formed bidders that the PNP’s bids
and awards committee and its tech-
nical working group wanted to base
their decision on the results of fir-
ing tests, Cheng said. Yet no bidder
except Trust Trade was allowed to
submit its weapons for testing, he
added.
After the July 5 meeting, the low-
est bidder, a joint venture between
R. Espenille and Israel Weapons
Industries was disqualified because
they did not submit the required
eligibility documents—the English
translations of documents were not
certified by their embassy, Palmo-
nes said.
On the other hand, the bids and
awards committee ignored the in-
sufficient documents submitted by
Trust Trade, Cheng said.
By waiving the documentary
requirements, Puno and PNP chief
Gen. Nicanor Bartolome violated
the Government Procurement Re-
form Act of 2003, which requires
that each bidder submit proof of
its track record by showing earlier
contracts with a value at least half
of the approved budget for the
contract.
In this case, the approved budget
was P1.198 billion for 59,904 cali-
ber 9 mm pistols.
But Glock Asia, registered in
Hong Kong, had an authorized
capital of only HK$10,000 and sub-
mitted as proof of its track record a
contract by another business entity,
Glock-Austria, which was not a
bidder or a partner in the joint ven-
ture, Palmones said.
He also said Glock-Austria
had a standing ban on gun ship-
ments to the Philippines, particu-
lary through Trust Trade, because
of its involvement in allegedly
anomalous arms deals in collu-
sion with police officials.
Palmones added that the Aus-
trian and American governments
were investigating corruption
charges against Glock-USA,
which re-exported the guns to the
Philippines through Trust Trade,
when its guns were supposed to
be for domestic use only in the
United States.
The lawmaker said the bids and
awards committee chose to ignore
all of those and allowed Trust Trade
to submit its weapons for testing
anyway.
“To this day, no firearms were
tested by the BAC other than the
Glock, the firearms offered by Trust
Trade, the second lowest bidder,”
Palmones said.
Cheng said Puno and Bartolome
even ignored their official com-
plaints that remained unresolved.
With Florante S. Solmerin
Bartolome...
wanted the President to deliver
on his promise to give him a free
hand in getting his own people.
Lacierda told reporters the
“primary consideration” for Bar-
tolome’s early retirement was to
allow the next police chief to be
in place before the elections and
not to replace Puno.
“The idea here is: you’ve
got...a mid-term term election
coming up in May. [Bartolome]
retires in March, so there’s a dif-
ficulty for the new PNP chief to
take over in the midst of the cam-
paigning,” Lacierda said.
Mr. Aquino said Sunday he
persuaded Bartolome to retire
early and assume the post vacat-
ed by Puno. On Wednesday, he
changed his statement and said
Puno’s replacement “might not
be ready ... at the time we will
need him.”
If Bartolome is allowed to finish
his term in March, the appointment
of his successor will be covered
by the 90-day election ban. The
President, however, has the power
to name a replacement even before
Bartolome’s retirement.
A senior Camp Crame official,
who asked not to be identified,
said Bartolome was likely to be
replaced by Gen. Allan Purisima
“whose appointment is already a
done deal.”
“The plan is to ask Bartolome
to resign and immediately appoint
Gen. Purisima,” the source said.
“President Aquino is in a di-
lemma because the plan was to
appoint Bartolome as Interior
undersecretary until Roxas ob-
jected.”
When sought for comment,
Batolome declined to elaborate
on his being eased out as police
chief and said he would follow
the orders of the president.
“I think I will retire and rest
because I have been in govern-
ment service for 36 years,” Bar-
tolome said.
Senator Panfilo Lacson, a for-
mer police chief, said Bartolome,
like the other members of the
Executive Branch of the bureau-
cracy, may not say “no” to the
president.
“It’s a presidential prerogative.
You can’t say no to the President
when you are a Cabinet member,
an undersecretary or a bureau
chief,” Lacson said.

4 airports get P4-b facelift
Budget chief Florencio Abad said
the amount has been released to the
Department of Transportation and
Communications.
“The release will support the
improvement or creation of more
gateways into the Philippines, giv-
en the administration’s campaign
to cement our position as a prime
tourist and investment hub,” Abad
said on Thursday.
Of the amount, P1.64 billion will be
used to rehabilitate Terminal 1 of the
Ninoy Aquino International Airport for
structural integrity and maintenance
activities.
The fund will cover the immediate
repair of the terminal’s mechanical,
electrical, plumbing, and fire protec-
tion systems, as well as the retrofitting
of the overall structure.
At least P2 billion has been set aside
for the New Legazpi Airport Develop-
ment Project in Albay for detailed en-
gineering of the airport’s runways and
taxiways.
Amid growing traffic demand,
Abad said the government has allo-
cated P800 million for the construc-
tion of a terminal building for the Ta-
cloban Airport.
The government also released P160
million for the Central Mindanao Air-
port that will serve a an access point to
Central Mindanao through North Co-
tabato that is intended to facilitate the
transport of high-value crops in and out
of the region.

NO ONE but the Bases Conver-
sion Development Authority is
wholly to blame for the prob-
lems now plaguing the Camp
John Hay Economic Zone, of-
ficials of the Camp John Hay
Development Corporation said
on Thursday.
Lawyer Manual Ubarra, CJH-
DevCo vice president for litiga-
tion and company spokesman,
stressed that “contrary to BC-
DA’s allegations in its second
criminal complaint for Estafa,
it was the failure of BCDA to
rectify or remedy the various
breaches of its obligations un-
der the lease agreement that led
to the suspension of rental pay-
ments by CJHDevCo.”
Criminal charges have been
filed by CJHDevCo against
BCDA officials led by president
Arnel Casanova who has repeat-
edly ignored requests for action
sought by the developer firm.
“Among the serious contractual
violations by BCDA at the begin-
ning of the lease contract are: a)
the failure to deliver clean posses-
sion of 32 hectares out of the 247
hectares comprising the leased
property; b) failure to demolish
structures inside the Leased Prop-
erty necessary to turn-over pos-
session of critical portions inside
the Leased Property; c) delay in
the issuance of the Implementing
Rules and Regulations covering
the Leased Property and failure
to enter into a Memorandum of
Agreement with the Bureau of
Customs to implement duty in-
centives inside the JH Special
Economic Zone ; d) failure to
assist CJHDevCo obtain the nec-
essary Environment Compliance
Certificate (ECC) for the develop-
ment of Camp John Hay,” CJH-
DevCo’s Executive Vice Presi-
dent and Chief Operating Officer,
Alfredo Yniguez added.
The ECC was issued only on
January 26, 1998. All these
factors prevented CJHDevCo to
take advantage of the prevailing
favorable climate to develop the
Leased Property.
Despite the failure of BCDA to
comply with their essential obli-
gations even at the beginning of
the lease agreement, CJHDevCo
was prevailed upon to complete
its rental payment for the first year
based upon the representation of
then Chairman of BCDA that they
will rectify their breaches.
Relying on this promise, CJH-
DevCo completed its rental pay-
ment for the first year on time.
“However, as history will
show, BCDA failed to deliver on
its promise to address their vari-
ous breaches despite the lapse of
another year. This left CJHDev-
Co with no other viable alterna-
tive but to suspend rental payment
in 1998. While the effects of the
Asian Financial Crisis in 1997
further compounded the obstacles
to the development efforts of
CJHDevCo, it was the breaches
by BCDA of its basic obligations
under the Original Lease Contract
that was the proximate or real
reasons for the suspension of pay-
ments,” Ubarra said.
“It is unfortunate that the pa-
triotic decision of CJHDevCo
to remain committed in continu-
ing to develop Camp John Hay
despite the sins of omission of
BCDA is now being misrepre-
sented by BCDA in their second
complaint for Estafa,” the CJH-
DevCo lawyer said.
Yniguez, for his part, said:
“Even if CJHDevCo had the
valid and legal basis to pull out
from the project and demand a
refund of rental payments from
BCDA, it did not do this for the
simple reason that it is commit-
ted to making a big contribution
in making Baguio the premier
tourist destination.”

THE Internal Revenue Bureau was set to examine the Value-Added Tax re-
turns of large taxpayers and those in Metro Manila in its bid to enhance com-
pliance and increase revenue collection with the issuance of two Revenue
Memorandum Orders.
Revenue Memorandum Order Nos. 19 and 20-2012 refer to 2012 Value-
Added Tax Audit Program for Large Taxpayers and Metro Manila Revenue
Regions such as Caloocan, Manila (excluding taxpayers under Romblon,
Palawan and Occidental Mindoro), Quezon City and Makati City.
The RMOs was aimed at implementing a quality short VAT audit to cor-
rect taxpayer errors and violations in the most recent VAT returns filed.
Under the RMOs, a VAT Audit Team, composed of a VAT Audit
Manager and Revenue Officers will audit/investigate the 1st and 2nd quar-
ter VAT returns of 2012 of Large Taxpayers and NCR taxpayers and every
quarter thereafter except for VAT returns with tax credit/refund claims or
those under audit by the Special Investigation Divisions and the Na-
tional Investigation Division.
Any of the following criteria will be applied in selecting VAT taxpayers
for audit: taxpayers whose VAT compliance is below the established
2010 and 2011 industry benchmarks, whichever is available; taxpayers
whose VAT returns for the succeeding quarters show substantial decrease in
tax payment; taxpayers whose VAT returns reflect substantial input taxes
from importations and local purchases, such as when the total purchases
claimed exceed 75% of the total sales; taxpayers with no VAT return filed
in any quarter or all the quarters in 2011; taxpayers who are reporting/filing
“No Operations” Returns.
THE Coast Guard said on Thursday that it has taken custody of the Viet-
nam-registered ship which was loaded with P200 million worth of rice
in Bicol after the Customs bureau issued a warrant of seizure and deten-
tion against the shipment on Wednesday.
Coast Guard chief information officer Armand Balilo said MV Minh
Tuan 68, which was carrying 94,000 bags of undocumented rice, is now un-
der the custody of Coast Guard personnel at the Albay Gulf Anchorage Area.
Coast Guard and Customs operatives said the cargo was intended to
be discharged in the Port of Legaspi as declared in its cargo manifest.
The Vietnamese exporter was identified as Vietnam Southern Food
Corp., and its consignees were from Palawan, Bulacan and Pampanga.
Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon, however, said the consignees
failed to produce the necessary import documents, an import permit, a
complete listing of its consignees, a bill of loading and proof of pay-
ments of Custom duties and other fees.
Meanwhile, Coast Guard Bicol Commander Commodore Joel Garcia
directed members of the Special Operations Unit to conduct stringent
maritime security operations aboard MV Minh Tuan 68 to prevent the
vessel from slipping out of the country. Joel E. Zurbano

FORMER president Gloria Macapagal-
Arroyo says she is suffering from severe
dehydration.
In her Twitter message on Thursday, Ar-
royo said she has started water therapy, add-
ing that her debilitating medical condition has
something to do with lack of water intake.
“Thanks all who sent good wishes for my
health. On his advice I’m doing a naturalist
practice of drinking lots of tap water with non-
iodized natural sea salt,” said Arroyo, who is
now a congressman representing Pampanga.
She said that a naturalist practitioner,
whom she did not name, attributed her recur-
ring spinal problems to severe dehydration.
“I keep entering the hospital and having
intravenous dextrose due to my severe dehy-
dration,” Arroyo said.
She had a series of spine surgeries last year
and had to wear a neck brace to prop her up.
Meanwhile, the former leader said that her
‘conventional’ medical treatment is she un-
dergoing does not have any conflict with the
‘alternative’ medical treatment she is resort-
ing to find the bst possible cure to her recur-
ring illness in the spine.
Arroyo also thanked her physicians in the
Veterans Medical Memorial Center (VMMC)
for allowing her to seek alternative treatment
to her spinal spondylosis.
“It has to be done under very hygienic con-
ditions. Then I proceeded to my 3x weekly
physical therapy at Veterans,” Arroyo said.
“Procedure was not only intravenous injec-
tion of the stem cell material but also other
naturalist treatment therapies,” she added.
Last weekend, Arroyo said she had planned
to undergo stem cell therapy with an alterna-
tive medicine doctor.
She revealed that she had seen at least
two alternative medicine practitioners and
has initiated talks with a neurocervical
spine specialist.

THE Philippine peso, it seems, will
strengthen further against the US dollar
in the coming months and there is no
way it will drop back to its previous
lows of over 50 to a dollar.
Exporters and Filipinos working
overseas should now get used to a
stronger peso amid the economic woes
of the United States and most of Europe.
The local currency, along with the rest
of Asia, have appreciated against the US
dollar as global fund managers bet on
riskier assets like the peso. Investments
in dollar and euro assets offer little or
marginal returns, driving fund managers
and speculators alike to try their luck on
Asia, including the Philippines.
The peso is hovering at four-year
highs against the US dollar, surging
to 41.50 early this week. The local
currency’s strength is mainly influenced
by the developments in Europe.
Nervous investors have dumped the
euro in recent days because of the
uncertainty of the Germany-led bailout
package for Greece.
The peso, meanwhile, has fortified
itself amid the huge inflows of foreign
exchange from exporters and workers
abroad, and revenues from tourism
and business process outsourcing
companies. The Philippines’ huge
international reserves of nearly $80
billion and a stronger-than-expected
economy have boosted investors’
confidence and lifted the local currency.
A stronger peso is not bad at all
for Filipino workers overseas and
exporters. It reduces the cost of
imports in peso terms, eventually
resulting in lower production cost and
inflation. A lower inflation preserves
the purchasing value of the peso and
shields the beneficiaries of remittances
from possible price hikes.
Reduced manufacturing costs as
a result of a firmer peso may spur
company expansions and create job
opportunities. In sum, a stronger peso
is generally good for the Philippines
because it will generate more economic
activities, other than exports.
The government, thus, must prepare
for a stronger peso regime. For one, it
should offer an environment that will
trim electricity rates to offset the impact
on exporters. The government must also
motivate investors to produce more and
prime them ahead of the anticipated
global economic recovery.
The peso gets stronger
EDITORIAL
Is Miriam
on her own?
IS THERE a concerted effort to
prevent the Senate from investigating
resigned Interior and Local
Government Undersecretary Rico
Puno? And if there is, will Senator
Miriam Santiago succumb to the
pressure for her not to continue prying
into the case?
Santiago’s investigation into the
allegations of misconduct and worse
against Puno could very likely push
through as planned this morning. But
with some officials in the Executive
and within the Senate itself taking a
dim view of the proceedings, it’s also
possible that the probe won’t happen
—or that it would die soon after it
begins.
No less than
Senate President
Juan Ponce Enrile
has doubted
Santiago’s basis
for calling for the
investigation, on
the ground that
there has been no
privilege speech
given or resolution
filed in the chamber
filed prior to the
senator’s scheduling
of the probe. At
least two other
senators—Panfilo
Lacson and Vicente
Sotto—have riffed
on the same subject, wondering if
Santiago’s probe was going to be held
in accordance with the Senate’s own
rules for such proceedings.
Now comes Justice Secretary
Leila de Lima, one of the officials
invited by Santiago’s committee
on constitutional amendments to
the hearings, saying that she, too,
basically had better things to do than
attend an investigation with such a
“vague” purpose. “What is the exact
objective [of the probe]?” asked De
Lima, who let it be known that she
has to meet President Noynoy Aquino
today and may not have the time to go
to the Senate, even if she wanted to.
Despite the accusations that she
may not be calling for a “valid”
investigation, Santiago has repeatedly
said that she will go ahead with the
hearings of her committee. She has
also warned Puno and the others
invited that she would send them to
jail if they don’t honor the invitations
sent to them.
But Santiago may have realized
that all her hand-wringing about Puno
could amount to nothing, not even an
opportunity to question the resigned
official about what he knew, when
he knew it and what he did about
it. Because of the short attention
span of the ordinary Filipino and
the emergence of many other new
hot-button topics that demand his
attention, it’s perfectly possible that
the senator may never get beyond first
base on this one.
We’ve already seen in the past
how the Senate can become an
all-too-willing extension office of
Malacañang Palace. Miriam may have
to go this one alone—or just decide to
not go at all, because of what amounts
to a conspiracy of silence about Puno.
* * *
My longtime data, landline and
wireless telephone service provider,
Globe Telecom, has reportedly seen
it fit to blame the bad press it’s been
getting on its main business rival,
Smart. But if Globe was really
honest about how its execrable
service, it would have nobody to
blame but itself for the dropped
calls, delayed messages, poor
signals, slow downloads and all the
other bad stuff that’s been plaguing
subscribers of the Ayala network in
recent months.
True, Smart has started a negative
ad campaign about the problems that
Globe subscribers like me know only
too well. But the Smart ads would be
easily dismissed as a cheap gimmick
to get Globe users
to shift, if there
was simply no truth
to the allegations
of shoddy service
being provided by
the Ayala telco.
But the reason
the Smart ads
resonate amongst
l o n g - s u f f e r i n g
Globe subscribers is
because of the truth
that they point out.
For some time now,
Globe has been
less than adequate
in providing the
services they charge
premium prices for.
The reasons for Globe’s bad
service could be myriad. There is
the widely held belief throughout the
telco industry (something that Globe
itself once admitted) that the network
has far too many subscribers than its
infrastructure can handle.
In a moment of corporate
candor, Globe recently admitted
that its network modernization
program was currently only 30
percent completed. This, together
with Globe’s ill-advised (and
certainly ill-prepared) foray into
the “unlimited” text-and-call
market that it once eschewed could
have caused the network to be
overwhelmed because it was being
forced to accept capacities that it
could not adequately provide.
But that honesty is now a thing
of the past, as Globe responded to
the complaints by blaming Smart
and even its own subscribers for the
problems it has been experiencing. It
seems as if, for Globe, the only real
way that it can ease the traffic on
its overburdened network is for its
clients to vote with their wallets and
join Smart.
I would not be surprised if more
and more Globe subscribers disgusted
with their provider’s service are doing
just that. There is only so much sloppy
service that the millions of loyal
Globe subscribers can take, after all.
Sometimes “bad press” doesn’t
mean that someone’s out to get you,
after all. It could also mean that the
sad, unvarnished truth has finally
come out.
JOJO
A. ROBLES
LOWDOWN
Some governance, please
NOW that the propaganda pollsters have
given President Benigno Aquino III an
unusually high satisfaction rating, and
Malacañang’s propagandists are making
a big thing out of it, may we finally
have some real governance, please? So
far the record has been anemic.
Exhibit 1. The failed Hu Jintao
bilateral. President Aquino went
to the 20
th
Asia-Pacific Economic
Cooperation (APEC) Leaders Summit
in Vladivostok, and came home
disappointed that he failed to have a
one-on-one “bilateral” with China’s
President Hu Jintao.
Clearly, there was no prior agreement
at the ministerial or official level that
the two presidents would meet. So no
head-to-head meeting could take place.
Now, if the President had been made
to believe that a meeting had been
arranged, when in fact there was none,
then his own people had taken him for a
ride. Heads should roll.
At the Second Nuclear Security
Summit in Seoul last March, inside the
delegates’ lounge, all I had to do was
to introduce myself as a former senator
from the Philippines, and President Hu
did not mind talking to me. That is not
a scenario for two heads of state, but
a bilateral meeting could have taken
place, had there been enough effort and
time to arrange it.
At the 16th Summit Conference of
the Non-Aligned Movement in Tehran
on August 30-31, there were no prior
arrangements for a bilateral meeting
between Vice President Jejomar C.
Binay, who represented the President,
and his Iranian hosts. The very tight
summit schedule and the number
of presidents and kings (29), prime
ministers (7), vice presidents (9),
foreign ministers and special envoys
attending the 120-nation conference did
not recommend it.
But at the Iranians’ initiative, Binay
had a bilateral conversation with
Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on the
first day, and with President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad on the closing day. He
was even asked to chair a good part of
the morning session of the second day
after he delivered his statement to the
conference.
Exhibit 2. The misreported
conversations with Singapore Prime
Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Aquino met with PM Lee at the
sidelines of the APEC summit on Sept.
8, and brought up the subject of territorial
disputes in the South China sea, which the
Aquino administration has unilaterally
renamed “West Philippine sea.” Lee
responded by pointing out the need for
all parties “to exercise restraint and for
disputes to be resolved peacefully in
accordance with international law.” Some
sectors of the Philippine media, without
checking with Singaporean authorities
but relying mainly on Philippine sources,
quoted Lee as expressing support for the
Philippine claim, even though he did not.
This drew a sharp rebuke from
Singapore, which compelled the
Department of Foreign Affairs to
confirm apologetically that, indeed,
Singapore does not take a position for
or against any claim to any disputed
territory in the South China Sea.
Nothing like this should have
happened, if the government took its
diplomacy seriously. But it is bound to
happen again and again, so long as it
continues to believe that government,
including diplomacy, is best conducted
through the press.
Exhibit 3. Unanswered questions
about the late DILG Secretary
Jesse Robredo’s plane crash,
former Undersecretary Rico Puno’s
questionable acts after the crash,
the President’s acceptance of his
resignation without any inquiry into
his acts, and the Senate’s threat to
investigate.
Questions persist about a possible
foul play in Robredo’s plane crash, even
after they have been dismissed by the
authorities. The fact that no autopsy
was ever made on Robredo’s remains
raises certain questions not easily laid
to rest. Puno’s reported attempt to break
into Robredo’s condo after the crash has
reinforced those questions.
Puno, known as the President’s
shooting buddy, has now resigned. But
the President has failed to order an
investigation into his suspicious conduct,
and into questionable transactions like the
P1-billion non-transparent purchase of
60,000 Glock handguns for the Philippine
National Police, plus wild stories about
jueteng. This has raised suspicions of a
possible cover-up.
Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago has
threatened to investigate. That promises
a lot of sensational headlines without
necessarily producing any concrete results.
The better option is for the President to do
what he did when he decided to oust the
last Chief Justice---ask the Ombudsman
and the Anti-Money Laundering Council
to intervene.
Exhibit 4. Horror stories about
our military purchases. Our old naval
vessels are leaking, and it might be safer
to be the target than to be the gunner if
and when their big guns are test-fired;
they have not been fired in years. This
is good reason to modernize, but not to
acquire two Maestrale vessels for P12.5
billion after retrofit, with a weapons
system that would become useless in
five years. Or, to acquire 40 “single-
engine” Eurocopters instead of other
brands with twin-engines, or to have
our 26 Vietnam war-vintage Hueys
reconditioned by a little-known foreign
company for P3 billion. The whole
thing becomes a real scandal when our
top defense officials say it is all right
because “Hanggang 2016 lang naman
tayo dito. (We’re here only until 2016.)”
This listing is long but our space
does not allow us to say more.

TOMORROW, September 15, I will
turn 85.
I feel blessed for having reached
this age. I am still relatively
healthy—except for some aches that
go with old age—enough to pound
on my rickety typewriter to churn
out four columns a week and attend
business meetings where I am either
director or consultant.
I am blessed with a caring and loving
wife whom I married 57 years ago. In
am looking forward to celebrating our
diamond anniversary three years from
now.
I have four loving children— three
boys and one girl.
They are all doing
well on their own. My
five grandchildren
bring me boundless
joy.
I have friends—
real friends—who
stick by me through
thick and thin.
People my age are
usually retired. Not
me. I will continue
to comfort the
afflicted and afflict
the comfortable until I write “30.”
I am reminded that I am blessed
when I see my classmates who have
become wheelchair-bound, or who are
suffering from dementia—if they are
still alive.
Getting old has its advantages and
disadvantages.
A distinct advantage is when I am
offered a seat and allowed to jump
a line as a senior citizen. In Makati
where I live, senior citizens enjoy free
movies, birthday cakes sent to our
doorstep by Mayor Jun-Jun Binay,
exemption from the number coding
scheme for vehicles, and the mid-year
and Christmas allowances which have
been increased to P4,000.
I hate it, though, when people call
me “Lolo.”
I have been president of the Manila
Overseas Press Club, the oldest press
organization in the country. I am now
chairman emeritus, as I am of the 365
Club at Hotel Intercon which will mark
its 40
th
anniversary come September 22.
I founded the Kapisanan ng mga
Broadkaster sa Pilipinas and the
Philippines Inc.
I love it when young pretty things
buss me. Come to think of it, women
in my generation didn’t look as pretty
and exciting as they do now. It’s either
because of the things they wear or their
makeup. Or is it because of Vicky Belo?
I think my wife is the most beautiful of
them all, though.
Sure, I have regrets. I have not been
able to write a book that chronicles my
over half a century as a journalist. I
have had the opportunity to be in print,
television and radio. I have walked the
corridors of power. I have seen the best
and the worst.
What I have learned in life is that
there is no better joy than sharing what
you have with others, especially those
who have less. Most especially, it is
good to be true to my faith in God and
the Blessed Virgin.
***
President Benigno Aquino III
has been very protective of resigned
Interior Undersecretary Rico Puno to
the point of babying him. All this is
difficult to comprehend. Is it because as
Puno boasted, only he could “tame” the
President?
The President continues to explain
that it was he who directed Puno to
secure the three government offices of
the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo
and even the latter’s condominium
unit in Quezon City. But, didn’t the
President know—or wasn’t he told—
that it a search warrant is needed to
enter private property?
In the case of the allegedly anomalous
bidding and procurement of a firearms
for the police, Malacañang goes to the
extent of trying to absolve Puno of any
responsibility in the
wake of a Senate
probe scheduled
today.
Why is Puno so
special to President
Aquino?
Loyalty is a
virtue, sure. But why
go overboard? Why
is the President now
telling us that Puno
may still be given
another job? Puno
himself says he is
still willing to serve the President.

Last month I spent a weekend at
an island paradise called Balesin. I
flew in a Cessna Grand Caravan for
a 26-minute flight from the domestic
airport. It was raining cats and dogs in
Manila and I was hesitant to leave, but I
could not disappoint my host, business
tycoon Bobby Ongpin who is a former
student at the Ateneo.
Ongpin is now the chairman of
Alphaland, the developer of Balesin.
I reached Balesin and landed on
its concrete runway good enough
for international jets. The sky was
bright and clear. Ongpin told me
that the weather pattern in Balesin
is two to three months later than
that in Manila.
Balesin is a 500-hectare paradise
with more than 7 kilometers of white
sand beaches. It will be ready for
members, guests and visitors by
Christmas. There will be 240 villas.
The island resort has themed
villages inspired by the renowned
destinations of Mykonos, St. Tropez,
Costa Smeralda, Bali and Phuket.
In fact, the island now has a
Bombardier Q400 owned and operated
by Philippine Airlines Express
(formerly Air Philippines) to ferry
members, guests and visitors. Ongpin is
also a member of the board of PAL and
San Miguel. The 72-passenger plane is
for the growing number of members,
guests and visitors to Thailand. Ongpin
said: “My friend and partner Ramon
Ang, now president of PAL, who loves
Balesin Island even as much or more
than I do, has been kind enough to
assist in this arrangements.”
In fact, this month, and on to
the Christmas season, there will be
international flights to Balesin form

Turning 85
is a blessing
SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 FRIDAY
RECENT developments in the local
stock market brought a previously
unheard-of story of entrepreneurial
success in the countryside. While the
circumstances surrounding the story has
some controversial elements, the story
is nevertheless inspiring and worth
sharing.
At the center of the story is a family
from Plaridel, Bulacan. The patriarch
of the family is one Eusebio Calata
who set up a modest poultry feed store.
Eusebio was your typical countryside
entrepreneur—he knew his market, had
the trust and loyalty of his customers
and gave them their money’s worth in
products and services.
Eusebio built a good local community
business and a solid personal reputation.
However, it would take his young
son to transform a small-town enterprise
into one of the leaders in the products
distribution business in the country’s
agriculture sector.
The son’s name is Joseph Calata,
31. He grew up and studied in Plaridel
until he obtained his university degree
from that green school in Taft Avenue
known for educating business moguls
and aggressive entrepreneurs. Using
much of what he learned from his
school and his father, he expanded his
father’s enterprise and turned it into a
multibillion-peso business.
Calata Corp. went public in May
this year. The initial public offering
has become one of the most inspiring
success stories in the annals of Filipino
entrepreneurship.
Now, the fairy tale-like chapter of the
Calata saga appears to have come to an
end. Joseph woke up one day to find
something amusing—and worrisome
—about the way the price of Calata
Corp. shares were going. In a matter
of weeks, Calata share prices had more
than doubled.
Based on what we gathered from
our media colleagues covering the
Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) beat,
Joseph did the unthinkable: he wrote
the PSE himself to ask that the body
investigate and find out whether or not
the impressive performance of the share
price of his company was not being
manipulated by unseen forces on the
stock market.
The move made many business
community pundits and stock market
observers to scratch their heads and say,
“this guy must really be young.”
The move apparently proved baffling
and may have betrayed the young
Calata’s lack of experience in the “real
world”. Why should this guy “panic”
over the outstanding performance of
his company’s share prices? Many
other companies which went public
went through the same impressive share
price performance, pundits point out.
There were fluctuations, sure, but that’s
because the market is still determining
what the comfortable level is. Nothing
to be nervous about, analysts say.
What Joseph Calata did not know
perhaps is that, in this country, there
are many so-called “piggy-backers”—
shadowy characters who will ride on
issues to promote their own agenda.
Fortunately, the PSE had moved
quickly to address his concern. The
PSE brought the Calata request to the
attention of the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC). The SEC, in turn,
acted with dispatch and tasked the
Capital Market Integrity Corp. (CMIC)
to find out whether or not some parties
had influenced the fluctuations in Calata
Corp.’s share prices.
Media colleagues say the CMIC has
finished its task and may be set to report
its findings soonest.
We do not know the Calatas nor have
we heard of them before this story broke
out.
However, we share the general
sentiments of both the media and the
business community about them.
On one hand, we take our hats off
to both Eusebio and Joseph Calata.
Countryside entrepreneurs who make
it big deserve both recognition and
respect.
On the other hand, we can only
commiserate with this father-and-son
team. We understand that the elder
Calata may not have warned his son
about the traps and landmines in the
national business setting. He belongs
to another era when people lived by
certain traditional values.
The younger Calata might have thought
that the same traditional Filipino values
he grew up with in his native Plaridel are
the same values followed in the big city.
Nope. In the big city, there are parties who
would love to see you fall down.
Many hope that the saga of the
Calatas does not end with this present
issue. Much inspiration can be derived
from their success. The entrepreneurial
spirit has been one of the pillars of the
success of Bulacan’s economy.
We are confident that the PSE and
the SEC will be able to bring this issue
to a proper conclusion. That proper
conclusion is necessary to preserve the
growing confidence of investors in our
local stock market.
And, necessary to keep the Filipino
entrepreneur inspired and his faith intact
that he can succeed in this country.
A young entrepreneur’s saga
Asian casino boom aims to lure region’s new rich
By Kelvin Chan
MACAU—In the Philippines, a
$4-billion casino will soon rise from
reclaimed land on Manila Bay. In South
Korea, foreign investors are expected
to break ground next year on a clutch
of casino resorts offshore. And on the
eastern edge of Russia, authorities plan
a resort zone aimed at drawing Chinese
high-rollers.
The projects are part of a casino
building boom rolling across Asia, where
governments are trying to develop their
tourism markets to capture increasingly
affluent Asians with a penchant for
gambling. They’re building glitzy,
upscale Las Vegas-style resorts in a bid
to copy the runaway success of Asian
gambling hubs Macau, which rapidly
became the world’s biggest casino
market after ending a monopoly, and
Singapore, where the city-state’s first
two casinos raked in an estimated $6
billion a year after their 2010 openings.
The casino boom highlights how the
gambling industry is being propelled by
the region’s rapid economic growth, with
millions entering the middle class thanks
to rising incomes that allow them to spend
more on travel and leisure pursuits. But it
has also intensified debate over the social
ills and perceived economic benefits of
the gambling industry.
“Definitely, the success of Macau
has set off a chain reaction in what is
happening in the region,” said Francis
Lui, vice chairman of Macau casino
operator Galaxy Entertainment Group.
“After the success of Macau and
Singapore, of course you see more
countries now assessing the pros and
cons of having gaming as a driving
engine for bigger economic growth.”
“In the future the region is going to
have more casinos.”
The fortunes to be made are
immense. After Macau ended a four-
decade monopoly and allowed in
foreign operators such as Las Vegas
Sands Corp., Wynn Resorts and MGM
Resorts International, the former
Portuguese colony on the southern
edge of China quickly overtook the
Las Vegas Strip as the world’s biggest
gambling market. The foreign operators
helped supercharge growth in Macau—
previously known for its aging, seedy,
no-frills casinos—by building flashy
gambling palaces drawing wealthy
mainland Chinese. Last year the city
of just 500,000 people raked in $33.5
billion in gambling revenue.
In Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands
and Resorts World Sentosa, which
together cost more than $10 billion, have
put the city on track to becoming the
world’s second-biggest gambling market.
By 2015, consultants
PricewaterhouseCoopers predict the
surge in Asian casino revenues will
have “fundamentally reshaped the
landscape of the global industry” and
help Asia edge out the United States as
the world’s biggest regional market.
PWC forecasts that the Asia-Pacific
gambling market will more than double
from $34.3 billion in 2010 to $79.3 billion
in 2015, surpassing the U.S., which is
estimated to grow from $57.5 billion to
$73.3 billion in the same period.
A number of projects planned or
under way across the region are helping
to fulfill that prediction.
Cambodian operator Nagacorp, which
runs the only casino in the Southeast
Asian city’s capital, Phnom Penh, plans to
open a $369 million expansion including
hotels and shopping later this year. The
company operates buses equipped with
massage chairs to pick up punters from
neighboring Vietnam.
Vietnam will get its first casino-
resort next year. Canadian company
Asian Coast Development is set to open
a five-star MGM-branded beachfront
complex in the southeast. It’s part of a
$4.2 billion tourist development aimed
at drawing foreign visitors.
Both countries bar their own citizens
from entering casinos.
Even the neglected Russian Pacific port
city of Vladivostok, perhaps best known
as the eastern terminus for the famed
Trans-Siberian Railway, plans to get in on
the action. Authorities announced plans
in May to invite foreign investors to help
develop an entertainment zone with no
less than 12 casinos aimed at attracting
Chinese and other North Asian visitors.
When completed, annual revenues could
reach $5.2 billion, according to a forecast
by consultants.
In Japan, where legalization has been
debated for years, lawmakers have been
inching closer to approving casinos as a
way to stimulate the economy and boost
tourism following last year’s devastating
tsunami and nuclear disaster.
But not everyone is convinced it’s a
gamble that will economically benefit
Japan, which already allows gambling
on horse, boat and bicycle racing as well
as slots.
“If we get casinos in Japan, that will
destroy the nation,” said Ken Wakamiya,
an author and anti-gambling activist.
He pointed out that pachinko, a
slot machine-like game, is one of
the country’s most popular forms of
gambling. But he said it’s played widely
by poor people and as a result made
them even poorer.
“Introducing casinos is a plan to
rip off our own people. It is an act of
madness,” he said.
A similar debate has played out in
Taiwan, which will get its first casino after
residents on the island of Matsu voted
in favor in July. Casinos are banned in
Taiwan except on outlying islands, where
approval in a referendum is needed.
Some countries are looking to
Singapore as a model for how to bring
in gambling without the side-effects.
The country, which authorized two big
casino-resorts as part of an effort turn the
Southeast Asian city-state into a gambling
and tourism magnet, is tightening what
are already some of the strictest measures
in Asia to control organized crime and
gambling addiction.
Junket operators—middlemen that
bring in wealthy high-rollers but which
have also been linked to organized
crime—are almost completely banned.
Regulators also plan a big hike in the
amount casino operators can be fined
for breaking regulations that include
charging locals 100 Singapore dollars
($81) a day to enter. The government
also expanded a program banning
people who are bankrupt or receiving
welfare from entering casinos, raising
the number to 43,000.
Despite the measures, more low
income players are betting bigger
amounts, according to a 2011 survey
by the National Council on Problem
Gambling, while the Samaritans
counseling hotline reports receiving an
increasing number of calls involving
problem gambling.
“The gambling industry is not a
sector that creates value-added products
or services and therefore will have little
impact on the development of the future
economy,” said Vincent Wijeysingha,
treasurer of the opposition Singapore
Democratic Party. “It does not contribute
to the deepening of economic capacity
or the introduction of new or innovative
services or industrial techniques.”
In the Philippines, church leaders
have spoken out against a $4 billion
project that the government hopes
will turn a site on Manila Bay into the
country’s version of the Las Vegas Strip.
Casinos have been legal since 1977 but
many are small and run-down.
Foreign investors including Macau’s
Melco Crown Entertainment, Japanese
pachinko tycoon Kazuo Okada’s
Universal Entertainment and Malaysia’s
Genting Bhd. are working separately with
local partners on the project, which will
include hotels, restaurants, museums, a
marina and boardwalk and a monorail.
The project, dubbed Entertainment
City, is aimed at drawing wealthy
foreign gamblers but church leaders
say it would promote “a culture of
gambling” in the conservative, majority
Roman Catholic Philippines.
Gambling “foments addiction,
foments indolence, foments a mentality
of chance and it destroys families,” said
Retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz.
In South Korea, Universal and two
other companies plan to build resorts in
a special economic zone near Incheon
Airport on Yeongjong Island. The
companies, which also include Caesar’s
Entertainment Corp. of the U.S. and
South Korea’s Paradise Group, are
scheduled to break ground in September
2013, said Lee Woo-hyung, director of
tourism and culture department at the
Incheon Free Economic Zone Authority.
Some are skeptical that the projects
can rival the profits made in Macau,
which has benefited from a seemingly
endless stream of mainland Chinese
gamblers.
Beijing has been happy to let its
wealthy gamble their fortunes away in
Macau, a special administrative region of
China. But it might start clamping down
on exit permissions to prevent citizens
from boosting a regional rival’s gambling
tax coffers if geopolitical tensions flare.
That risk is most acute in the
Philippines, which has sparred with
Beijing over a disputed shoal, said
Grant Govertsen, managing partner of
Union Gaming Research Macau.
“You’re entirely dependent on the
good graces of Beijing to be successful,”
said Govertsen. “And I don’t like those
odds.” AP

THE economy is hitting a wall. Stocks
are sliding. A prominent politician’s
wife copped to murdering a foreigner.
Warmongering over tiny islands in the
sea is eliciting awful headlines. And
now, there’s breathless speculation
about the mysterious disappearance of
the next president.
It’s safe to say 2012 has not been
China’s year. Things could get even
worse as political and economic
challenges come to an untimely head.
Mounting questions about the
whereabouts of Chinese Vice President
Xi Jinping are the latest headache for
Beijing. The leading candidate to
succeed President Hu Jintao in a once-
in-a-decade leadership change this year
hasn’t been seen in public for more than
a week, and it’s driving the blogosphere
mad.
China watchers assumed US-China
tensions prompted Xi to blow off U.S.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in
Beijing last week. Now, the rumor mill
is spinning apace with unconfirmed talk
of heart attacks, strokes, car accidents,
you name it. All the world can do is
watch and wait to see if the carefully-
laid leadership plans of the second-
biggest economy are still on.
Yet the hysteria speaks to the
difficulty China is having convincing
the outside world that all’s well inside
the Communist Party. The Bo Xilai
scandal earlier this year shattered
the veneer of stability and the idea
that Communist Party bigwigs were
firmly behind Xi. Bo, the Politburo
member from the western megacity
of Chongqing, coveted the job before
his ouster earlier this year and his
wife’s conviction for killing a British
businessman. And now this.
Dark news also is spreading across
the economy. Investment banks are
tripping over themselves to lower gross
domestic product forecasts for China
this year. Economists at UBS AG, ING
Groep NV and Royal Bank of Scotland
Group Plc forecast full-year growth
of 7.5 percent, which would be the
weakest since 1990. That may prove too
optimistic as Europe’s worsening debt
crisis and the U.S.’s glacial recovery
slam exports.
Will 2013 be a better year for China?
We can only hope so. Another year
like 2012 would wreak havoc among
China’s 1.3 billion people and investors
betting on their economic progress.

These were the words Justice Secretary
Leila de Lima declared during a workshop
of the NPS Internal Affairs Unit, a day
after the Justice Department filed admin-
istrative charges against three employees
who allegedly extorted P300,000 for a
favorable decision on a complaint.
“I can’t help but doubt whether the
people we are entrusting with the en-
forcement of the codes of conduct for
the [NPS] and our good governance
and anti-corruption initiatives are the
right people to be investigating such
nefarious activities within their very
own ranks,” De Lima added.
“Deliver to justice those who do not
deserve to belong to the National Pros-
ecution Service,” she said.
On Wednesday, De Lima approved
the filing of administrative charges of
grave misconduct, dishonesty and con-
duct prejudicial to the best interest of
the service Senior Deputy State Pros-
ecutor Severino Gaña, his staff mem-
“CONVINCE me, convince yourselves and
convince the public that the words honesty,
integrity, dignity, transparency, accountabil-
ity, truth, justice and good governance actual-
ly mean something in the [National Prosecu-
tion Service]; that your honor is not for sale,
not for P300,000, not for any price.”
ber Mutya Santiago-Tobes, and Louise
“Louie” Garcia, a staff member of an-
other unidentified prosecutor.
Tobes was arrested by agents of the
National Bureau of Investigation on
August 31 in an entrapment operation
at Gaña’s office.
Tobes was arrested on the complaint
of former beauty queen Nuriza Abeja, a
respondent in a family law suit that was
dismissed by Makati City prosecutors
last year. The case was later elevated for
review to the DOJ and Tobes allegedly
told Abeja that there was already a favor-
able decision on her case, but it would be
reversed if she does not pay P300,000,
which was later reduced to P250,000.
Garcia, on the other hand, purport-
edly followed up Tobes’ demand and
“threatened to reverse the decision if
she fails to deliver” the money.
Abeja also complained that Gaña
himself angrily told her to deliver the
money at his office.
Tobes was charged with robbery/
extortion charge before a Manila court
but she posted a P100,000 bail.
The DOJ said in a statement that
probable cause was no longer needed
to pursue the case against the Gaña and
the two others.
“The quantum of proof in admin-
istrative cases is only substantial evi-
dence, or such kind of relevant evidence
as a reasonable mind might accept as
adequate to support a conclusion or evi-
dence commonly accepted by reason-
ably prudent men in the conduct of their
affairs,” the department said.
“It’s truly appalling to find that
nefarious activities like these are still
happening among the ranks of the
National Prosecution Service. And
right inside the premises of the DOJ
no less,” said De Lima, adding that
she will continue to “unravel all the
connections” in the “scheme” where
more prosecutors may be involved.
THE case of Filipinos Edison Gonzales,
his brother Roland, and Eduardo Arcilla is
one of the closely-watched cases in Saudi
Arabia from 2006 until 2009.
They were sentenced to death in July
2007 by a Jeddah General Shari’ah Court
to death after they were found guilty of
killing fellow Filipinos Dante Rivero and
his two friends, Reno Lumbang and Jer-
emias Bucod sometime in April 2006.
In 2009, blood money was given to the
families of the slain victims through the
intercession of Pampanga Archbishop Pa-
ciano Aniceto. The blood money was given
by the PCSO directly to the victims.
As a result, the execution of the three
Filipinos was stayed, however, with the
change of the administration, families of
the Gonzales brothers and Arcilla are wor-
ried about the status of their case and the
state of their health.
Gonzales and Arcilla are said to be suf-
fering from various illnesses and are seek-
ing for the speedy resolution of their cases
so they could come home.
Rosanna, wife of Edison Gonzales,
said they are worried after they failed to
get an assurance from Philippine officials
on the possible outcome of their case de-
spite the payment of the blood money and
the issuance of an affidavit of forgiveness
by the family of the victims.
She said that they were able to talk to
Philippine Ambassador to Saudi Arabia
Ezzedine Tago who told them that the case
is undergoing retrial. But he could not as-
sure them that they would not get the death
sentence if their guilty verdict is upheld
saying it is still up to the courts.

THE Supreme Court has stopped the Na-
tional Labor Relations Commission from
enforcing a labor arbiter’s order awarding
P60 million in compensation to a foreigner
who had no alien employment visa to work
legally in the Philippines.
In an en banc resolution dated Sept. 4,
2012, the SC stopped the implementation
of the Sept. 30, 2004 order issued by labor
arbiter Salimathar Nambi in favor of Austra-
lian petitioner Andrew James McBurnie.
The high court’s third division affirmed
Nambi’s order directing respondent Eulalio
Ganzon, EGI-Managers Inc. and E. Ganzon
Inc. to pay P60 million to McBurnie in a de-
cision dated Sept. 18, 2009.
With the denial of his motion for recon-
sideration, Ganzon filed another motion and
sought the elevation of his case to the full
court.
In granting the appeal of Ganzon, the
high bench stated that “while the third di-
vision had denied with finality in its reso-
lution dated Dec. 14, 2009 respondents’
motion for reconsideration of its decision
dated Sept. 18, 2009, and a second mo-
tion for reconsideration as a general rule
should not be entertained, the court en
banc resolved to accept this case, which
was referred to it by the third division in
its resolution dated August 22, 2012, by
a vote of 12, or more than two-thirds of
its actual membership, in accordance with
Section 3, Rule 15 of the Internal Rules of
the Supreme Court...”
In his motion filed with the SC’s third
division, Ganzon argued that despite the
November 17, 2009 NLRC decision that
reversed the ruling of the arbiter, McBurnie
still got the P60 million in compensation
from the high court.
He said the NLRC ruling stated that there
was “no plausible reason to find legal or fac-
tual basis to grant the claims of complainant
McBurnie.”
According to Ganzon, while McBurnie
purportedly filed personally his complaint
with the NLRC in 2002, Bureau of Immigra-
tion records showed that the foreigner “had
left the country for good three years before
the complaint was filed.”
“At the time of the filing (of the com-
plaint), McBurnie was abroad, thus the com-
plaint was filed in absentia and another per-
son pretending to be McBurnie was sworn
in by the NLRC officer in Quezon City” to
attest to the complaint, he said.
Thus, he stressed that the filing of the
labor case in absentia, in violation of the
rules, was the reason why McBurnie “failed
to attend any of the 14 hearings intended for
mediation.”
He said the NLRC requires the presence
of the complainant in the hearings and that
under the rules, “two missed hearings equal
to a dismissal” of the complaint.
“McBurnie was supposed to be an inves-
tor, not an employee. He never worked for
me or in any of my companies. He request-
ed to use EGI Managers, Inc. to start a hotel
business venture. As presented, I noted a
condition of availability of funds before we
could start our contract,” he said.
“McBurnie left the country in November
1999, a month and a half after the alleged
start of contract in September 1999, while
the complaint (before the NLRC) was filed
in October 2002 when the labor claim would
have prescribed,” he added.
Ganzon also said “McBurnie has never
been issued a working permit or an alien
employment permit.”

2 in nurse’s death nabbed
THE Pasay City police arrested two
suspected robbers who victimized a
city hall employee last week.
Suspects Leo Navarra, 28, and
Robert Espidion, 32, were presented
to Pasay City Mayor Tony Calixto on
Wednesday. They have been charged
with robbery with homicide.
The duo has been identified as the
ones who robbed Restituto Cruz, a
registered nurse and employee of the
Pasay City Health Office. The victim
died when he tumbled on the road
while chasing the suspects.
“We can now serve justice to the
family of Mr. Cruz. These suspects
should pay for their crime,” Calixto
said. The city government, he added,
will also settle the hospital bills of the
victim.
Cruz was robbed on the night of
Sept. 7 while inside a jeepney travers-
ing Edsa-Taft Avenue area going to

First aid stations sought
A PASAY City councilor has proposed
an ordinance requiring emergency aid
booths at the stations of Light Rail
Transit-1 and Metro Rail Transit 3.
Councilor Richard Advincula said
he has personally observed that all the
LRT and MRT stations within the city
have no first aid units and emergency
medical personnel to assist the public.
“They don’t even have emergency
oxygen apparatus to help passengers
falling ill due to overcrowding and
other causes,” Advincula said.
LRT-1 has two stations in Pasay-
Baclaran, Libertad and Edsa-Taft. The
MRT-3’s Edsa station is connected to
the LRT line.
While acknowledging that the se-
curity personnel of LRT and MRT are
equipped with first aid kits, Advincula

NOTI CE TO THE PUBLI C
SEPTEMBER 14, 2012
Pacquiao’s adviser Michael
Koncz told the Manila
Standard that the Filipino ring
icon had chosen Marquez over a
rematch with Timothy Bradley,
pointing out that “next to a fight
against Floyd Mayweather Jr.,
a fight with Marquez would be
the best.”
Koncz, who was driving
back to Los Angeles after
finalizing details of an
agreement with Top Rank
promoter Bob Arum in Las
Vegas, said Pacquiao wants
to entertain the fans.
“In his last fight with
Marquez, which was close,
some of the Mexican fans
booed the decision. Manny
cares for the Mexicans, who
have always supported him and
he wants to bring them back
with a great fight,” said Koncz.
In an earlier interview
with Jenna Jay of Doghouse
Boxing’s On the Ropes radio
show, Roach said a showdown
with Marquez is a very difficult
fight.
“Because Marquez has a
difficult style, we just have
to get in the gym and work
real hard for this fight,” said
Roach. “Pacquiao really
needs to focus. It’s a very
difficult fight, style-wise,
for us. Marquez does give
FRIDAY
By Ronnie Nathanielsz
FIGHTER of the Decade Manny
Pacquiao has decided to fight Mexican
legend Juan Manuel Marquez for a
fourth time at the MGM Grand Garden
Arena on Dec. 8.
CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK
IS Bob Arum on the way out as promot-
er of Filipino boxing sensation Manny
Pacquiao?
This may well be the direction being
taken by Pacquiao after the Filipino cham-
pion’s Canadian agent Michael Koncz re-
vealed the potential alliance between them
and rapper 50 Cent.
Koncz said they are now nearing a deal
that will lead to a joint promotional ven-
ture between Pacquiao and 50 Cent, who
recently established TMT Promotions, the
American rapper’s boxing company.
Koncz, however, declined to clarify if
this is their way of bolting out of Arum’s
outfit and eventually team up with Floyd
Mayweather Jr., a known pal of 50 Cent.
Insiders from Team Pacquiao are ada-
mant about Pacquiao’s supposed displea-
sure when it comes to the inability of Arum
to finalize a deal involving a fight against
Mayweather Jr., a fellow pound-for-pound
claimant.
Arum is still waiting for Pacquiao to
sign the dotted line for a scheduled Dec.
8 outing against either American tormentor
Timothy Bradley or bitter Mexican rival
Juan Manuel Marquez.
But the latest development about Pac-
quiao’s supposed promotional coalition
may put Arum’s plan in limbo.
BLIND SQUAD. Philippine basketball
team head coach Chot Reyes said they will
be entering the FIBA Asia Cup tournament
like a blind squad as they have no idea
about the rosters of the opposition.
According to Reyes, he tried to search
through the Internet but failed to find a
single Website that contains the names of
those who will play for their Asian com-
petitors.
Reyes said the only idea he got is that
the all-mighty China will send its Group B
squad for this tournament set to happen in
Tokyo, Japan.
“Until 3 a.m. kanina, wala kang
makikitang line-up ng China, Iran, Leb-
anon. Tayo lang ang may line-up kasi
maraming masigasig na nagsulat. Even
in the FIBA Website, walang line-up na
makikita ka,” said Reyes.
The Philippines is bracketed in Group A,
where they will battle China, Lebanon, Uz-
bekistan and Macau.
Meantime, the Philippine team practiced
Wednesday morning just hours before they
proceeded to the airport for their mid-after-
noon flight.
“I don’t feel as prepared as we were
nung umalis kami sa Jones Cup where at
least we had two weeks of full practice,”
said Reyes “This time, today is our only
full practice because most of the players
had to practice with their mother teams.”
The FIBA Asia Cup is set to start today
with AKTV on IBC beaming from Tokyo
the game between Team Pilipinas and Chi-
na live starting at 3 p.m.

THE University of Perpetual
Help Altas got off to a fiery
start and pulled off an 89-58
blasting of the Arellano Uni-
versity Chiefs in the 88th
National Collegiate Athletic
Association men’s basketball
tournament yesterday at the
Arena in San Juan.
The Altas’ ninth win in 14
games allowed them to improve
their record to third place, keep-
ing them in contention for a Fi-
nal Four semifinal seat.
Jet Vidal showed the way
for the Altas with 24 points,
including three treys in the fi-
nal quarter from his total four
three-pointers.
The Altas’ winning mar-
gin matched the season high
31-point victory, which the
Chiefs posted over the Lyceum
Pirates, 83-52, in the first round.
Vidal and Earl Thompson,
who made nine of his 14-point
tally in the first half, struck
hardest in the second half as
the Altas limited the Chiefs to
just 10 points in the second pe-
riod. Their efforts allowed the
Altas to move away, 37-25, at
halftime.

FIGHTER of the Decade Manny
Pacquiao and high profile rapper
50 Cent are set to form a joint
promotional venture, according
to the Filipini ring icon’s adviser
Michael Koncz.
Koncz has been shuttling back
and forth between Los Angeles
and New York, discussing the
plans with the rapper, who re-
cently formed his own boxing
promotional outfit and signed up
a few fighters.
Pacquiao owns MP Promo-
tions, which Koncz handles and
has featured some of the lesser-
known fighters on promotional
partnerships with Bob Arum of
Top Rank and Fernando Beltran
of Zanfer Promotions.
The team-up with 50 Cent
could open the possibility of
Floyd Mayweather Jr. becoming
a partner, although there have
been reports of friction between
the undefeated champion and his
close friend in recent weeks.
“Initially, it was going to be
50 Cent, Manny and Floyd. But
right now, I don’t think Floyd is
going to be a part of it,” Koncz
told boxingscene.com.
Koncz disclosed that he had
informed Pacquiao of the plan to
put up a joint promotional outfit
and that the eight-division world
champion was excited about the
prospect, given the reality that
his illustrious career as a fighter
is winding down.
“I think with 50 Cent, with
his entertainment connections
and his popularity, combining
that with Manny’s popular-
ity and expertise in boxing—
we can bring a new flavor to
boxing—we can excite some
young boxers and I think we
can sign some top-quality box-
ers. I spoke to 50 Cent tonight
and confirmed that we’re going
to go forward. Manny is com-
ing here this weekend for other
business, but we’re all excited
about it. With 50’s influence in
the music industry—we want
to put a different flavor on the
shows,” Koncz was quoted as
saying.
Elaborating on tentative
plans Koncz said “On pay-per-
view events maybe we won’t
do four fights. Maybe we’ll do
two fights and a mini-concert
in-between or something. A
different angle on it. People
know Manny cares about other
boxers and I think that’s going
to be important when we go out
and sign other quality boxers
who may not know 50 Cent but
on the other hand know Manny
and know his generous charac-
ter to other boxers.”

By Jeric Lopez
ATENEO moved closer to se-
curing the top seed as it once
again manhandled National
University, 70-56, in the 75th
University Athletic Associa-
tion of the Philippines at the
Philsports Arena in Pasig City.
Greg Slaughter scored a
game-high 22 points on top of
seven rebounds as he enforced
his might down the block for
the Eagles.
With the win, Ateneo is now
assured of at least a playoff for
a top two finish and a twice-to-
beat incentive heading into the
semifinals.
After another sluggish first half,
the Final Four-bound Blue Eagles
swiftly established their might in
the third frame to methodically
pull away. A 25-9 blast in the third,
capped by Kiefer Ravena’s triple
with 9.2 ticks left in the period,
gave Ateneo a 56-42 spread. It
outscored the Bulldogs 25-12 in
the third.
“We weren’t able to control
them in the first half and we
made some adjustments in the
third quarter that allowed us to
break away,” said Ateneo coach
Norman Black. “All credit to the
players. They listened to us re-
garding the adjustments.”
The Bulldogs fell back into
a tie with idle La Salle for the
fourth and final semis spot as
they are both at 7-5.
Earlier, Far Eastern Univer-
sity withstood a stiff test as it
carved a 67-63 escape win over
University of the Philippines.
LAM TIES OCAMPO
DAVAO—James Ryan Lam came charging home
at the front to shoot a five-under 67 and force a
tie with Carl Santos-Ocampo as erstwhile leader
Rufino Bayron fumbled with a 73 in a topsy-turvy
second round of the ICTSI Ranchos Palos Verdes
Classic at the Palos Verdes layout here yesterday.
Lam, seeking an end to a string of so-so finishes in
the circuit, hit three birdies in the last nine holes at
Palos Verdes’frontnine to catch Santos-Ocampo,
who salvaged a two-under 70 in a shaky finish in
the morning batch, as they led Jun Bernis by one
with six-under 138s heading to the final round of
the P1 million event.

Smart and USAID
recently launched the
Scaling Innovations in
Mobile Money (SIMM)
project, which seeks
to increase within two
years the country`s active
mobile money user base
by over 1 million, and
boost the value oI mobile
money transactions by
more than 200 percent.
'The ultimate goal oI
this project is to achieve
fnancial inclusion and, in
eIIect, remove barriers to
the country`s economic
growth. Smart has been
advocating this Ior years,
so we are very happy
to partner with USAID
for this endeavor,” said
Smart Financial Services
Head Tricia Dizon.
'Smart introduced the
world`s frst electronic
wallet service Smart
Money in 2001 because
we realized early on the
benefts oI using mobile
money, especially Ior
those in areas that have
limited or no access to
fnancial services. Our
mobile money services are
currently available to 50
million Smart subscribers,
10 million oI whom have
Smart Money accounts,¨
she added.
Since 2008, Smart
has been implementing
the Islands Activations
Program (IAP) which
allows Filipinos in Iar-
fung areas to perIorm
money transIers via Smart-
powered mobile phones.
It also enables people to
purchase electronic load,
pay bills, and make micro-
purchases with a Iew clicks
on their mobile phone.
'We have successIully
rolled out IAP in more
than 50 areas. Residents
oI these areas no longer
have to travel Ior hours
to complete fnancial
transactions. Through
Smart`s partnership with
USAID, we hope to
give more communities
easy access to Iormal
fnancial services so they
can enhance the way
they live and carry out
business,¨ Dizon said.
According to a report
by the Bangko Sentral
ng Pilipinas, about 74
percent oI Filipinos do
not have access to Iormal
fnancial channels, and 37
percent oI the country`s
1,635 municipalities
have no banks.
'By oIIering a saIe,

convenient way oI
doing business, mobile
money technology will
provide an important
tool to promote
fnancial inclusion and
transparency,¨ said
USAI D/ Phi l i ppi ne s

The SIMM project
aims to provide 10,000

IN BRIEF
A STRONG demand for
passenger cars drove sales of
imported vehicles 24 percent
higher in the first eight months
year-on-year, the Association
of Vehicle Importers and
Distributors said Thursday.
Avid said members sold
19,875 units during the period
from 16,020 on year. Sales in the
passenger car segment increased
50 percent to 12,049 units from
8,047 on year.
“Avid continues to drive
industry growth through its
consistent, positive growth in
total sales figures for the first
eight months of 2012,” Ma. Fe
Perez-Agudo, Avid president,
said in a statement.
“With our beefed-up portfolio
of products and services, we are
more than ready to respond to
the ever-growing clamor for our
products,” she said.
Sales in August just increased
1.8 percent to 1,858 units from
1,825 on year.
The top three contributors to
the positive sales were Hyundai
Asia Resources Inc., British
United Automobiles (Mini)
and The Covenant Car Co. Inc.
(Chevrolet). Julito G. Rada
Itochu to acquire
Dole’s Asian units
ITOCHU Corp., the third-largest trading house in Japan, is
in talks to buy Dole Food Co.’s global processed food unit
as well as its fruit and vegetable business in Asia, including
pineapple and banana plantations in the Philippines, to add
more consumer assets.
Itochu expects to complete the deal around November,
the Tokyo-based company said Thursday in a statement.
Dole is in “advanced negotiations” for the sale, which is
part of an earlier announced strategic review, the Westlake
Village, California-based company said Wednesday in
a statement. The deal may be worth $1.7 billion, Nikkei
reported without citing anyone.
Japan’s major trading houses are expanding into food to add
to iron ore, coal and oil sales that dominate their profits as a
way to cushion against economic downturns. Marubeni Corp.
beat Asian rivals to secure US grain merchandiser Gavilon
Group LLC for $5.6 billion in May. Mitsui & Co. took control
of Brazil’s Multigrain SA in 2011.
“Diversification of their non-
resource portfolio has become an
issue for all the trading houses,”
said Mitsuru Miyazaki, an analyst
with SMBC Friend Research Center
Ltd. in Tokyo. “It’s not about quick
profit expansion, it’s about building
a stronger profit base.”
Dole’s Asian operations
included pineapple and banana
plantations in the Philippines as
well as ripening and distribution
centers in Japan, South Korea,
China, Australia, Taiwan and
Thailand, according to a 2009

THE Bangko Sentral kept its benchmark interest rate at a
record low Thursday, joining South Korea and Indonesia in
refraining from easing monetary policy further in the wake
of rising inflationary pressures.
The Monetary Board, the Bangko Sentral’s
policy making body, maintained the rate it
pays lenders for overnight deposits at 3.75
percent and the lending rate at 5.75 percent.
It also kept the reserve requirement ratios
unchanged.
“The Monetary Board’s decision was
based on its assessment that the inflation
environment remains benign, with the
risks to the inflation outlook appearing
to be broadly balanced,” Bangko Sentral
Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. said in a
news briefing.
Inflation accelerated to a seven-month high
in August, with consumer prices rising 3.8
percent from a year earlier, after monsoon
floods prompted food-price increases. The
bank raised its inflation forecast for 2012 to
3.4 percent from 3.1 percent and the 2013
estimate to 4.1 percent from 3.2 percent.
Tetangco said while the inflation forecast
was raised following the higher August
inflation and recent price hikes in global
oil and other commodity prices, “the future
inflation path remains well within the
target.”
“On balance, the Monetary Board is of
the view that the prevailing monetary policy
settings remain appropriate. This is supported
by the manageable inflation outlook and
robust domestic growth, especially as the
cumulative 75-basis-point reduction in policy
rates and other operational adjustments
earlier in the year to continue to work their
way through the economy,” he said.
The Bangko Sentral cut policy rates three
times this year while President Benigno
Aquino III is increasing spending to a record
to counter slowing global growth. The $225-
billion economy expanded 5.9 percent in the
second quarter from a year earlier, compared
with a 6.3-percent gain in the first quarter.
HSBC economist Trinh Nguyen said the
Bangko Sentral had already made timely
adjustments in the policy rates in the first half
of the year thus, it could now focus on the
rising inflationary pressures.
“The BSP has fulfilled its obligation to
boost the economy, especially with easing
measures filtering through to stimulate
private consumption and fiscal spending
accelerating in the coming months. As such,
the BSP will focus on monitoring elevated
global commodity prices, pent-up demand
and potential short-term supply shocks,”
Nguyen said. With Bloomberg
D&L to list shares
D&L Industries, a leading
manufacturer of food ingredients
and specialty plastic colorants
and additives in the country,
plans to raise as much as P6.3
billion through an initial public
offering slated in the fourth
quarter of the year.
D&L is offering up to 1.07
billion primary shares, or up to
30 percent of its outstanding
capital, according to a registration
statement filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission.
The shares will be listed under
the first board of the Philippine
Stock Exchange.
D&L plans to use proceeds
from the offering to fund
investments and acquisitions,
pay debt obligations and finance
general business.
The company has tapped
Maybank ATR Kim Eng Capital
Partners as lead international
and domestic underwriter, issue
manager and sole bookrunner for

PASSENGER volume at the

He said the eight-month
growth surpassed the overall

MILF jittery over Mar?
US allocates lower sugar volume
Basic gets
DoE nod
to explore
DESPITE public
statements to the
contrary, Happy Hour
deep penetration agents
said the appointment of
Mar Roxas as Interior
and Local Government
chief has sent jitters
among members of
the Moro Islamic
Liberation Front. The
Muslim secessionist
group has apparently
not forgotten Roxas’
fierce opposition to the
(eventually junked)
memorandum of agreement on ancestral domain that resulted
in the scuttling of the peace talks during the administration of
Glor ia Ar royo.
MILF hardliners are reportedly unhappy over the Roxas
appointment, seeing it as a “bad omen” for the ongoing peace
talks which President Noynoy Aquino hopes to successfully
conclude within the year. Nevertheless, the rebel group is
willing to give the President’s defeated running mate a chance to
“redeem himself” and show that he has become a changed man
and forward-looking leader.
Skeptics say they are hoping Mar would not prove to be a
stumbling block in their efforts to create a new, autonomous
political entity that would replace the badly managed Autonomous
Region in Muslim Mindanao—described in unflattering terms by
the Senate’s Big Man Fr ank Dr ilon as “the most haunted”—
with ghost employees, ghost teachers, ghost voters and all kinds
of supernatural phantoms and specters.
Whether the said issue would be brought up during the
confirmation hearing of Roxas slated on Sept. 19 is going to
be closely watched by MILF hardliners, Happy Hour sources
averred.
What—no por k?
Or at least, that seems to be the concern of party list
Representative Ar nel Ty, who is nudging Agriculture Secretary
Procy Alcala to look into the escalating costs of milled soya, a
favorite among swine and hogs. Milled soya prices have surged
to as high as P36 per kilo in August from only P22 in July, causing
scowls among swine growers who are also complaining of the
difficulty in procuring the protein-rich material which accounts
for 25 percent of most swine feed.
What makes matters even worse is the fact that the Philippines
does not grow soya beans, making swine breeders totally
dependent on just a handful of milled soya importers, Ty warned,
stressing that the rising prices could adversely affect pork lovers.
For sure, congressmen included, a Happy Hour cabal member
commented.
The local swine industry is said to be the farm sector’s
biggest employer and the second-biggest economic contributor
to agriculture after rice. Which is why authorities should
make sure that importers are not resorting to boarish tricks
(like hoarding supplies in warehouses) to create an artificial
demand-supply inequality as an excuse to jack up prices, the
congressman said.
AViD for tour ism
Avid students of architecture and interior design as
well as Philippine heritage lovers can still throw in their
creative ideas to help transform the Philippines into the
“must experience destination” in Asia (and why not the
whole world?) via the Annual Visionary Design (AViD)
competition whose deadline has been extended up to
the end of September. This year, the theme centers on a
destination pit stop or visitor’s center design that revolves
around the National Tourism Development Plan and the 40
th

Anniversary of the Unesco world heritage list.
According to organizers, the design for the structure
should “foster the dialogue between old and new, past
and present, natural and manmade” that would relevantly
benefit the historical landmarks in the country. In short,
a revolutionary study in contrasts that would highlight
Philippine heritage.
The competition will have three categories: professional
architects; students currently enrolled in Architecture, Interior
Design, Engineering and other allied disciplines such as Fine
Arts, etc.; and the general public. All categories are open to an
individual or a group, with winners to receive a trophy by world-
renowned glass sculptor Ramon Or lina, aside from cash and
other prizes. Check out http://avid.myhomedesign.ph/ for more
details on the competition.

THE United States will import 114,901
metric tons of raw sugar from the
Philippines under the country-specific
tariff rate quota scheme in fiscal year 2013,
the US Trade Representative announced
Thursday.
The USTR said the US would
import 1.117 million tons of
raw sugar from 38 preferred
countries beginning Oct. 1,
2012 until Sept. 30, 2013.
The Philippines was given the
third-highest allocation, next
to Brazil’s 155,634 metric tons
of raw sugar and Dominican
Republic’s 188,908 MT.
Tariff-rate quotas allow
countries to export specified
quantities of a product to the
United States at a relatively
low tariff. Imports above the
pre-determined threshold are
subjected to a higher tariff
rate.
Allocations are based on each
country’s historical shipments
to the United States.
The Philippines exported
200,561 MT to the US under
the tariff rate quota system
and 326,379 MT to the world
market in the previous fiscal
year, according to data released
by the Sugar Regulatory
Administration.
The SRA expects sugar
production to rise 5 percent
to 2.356 million MT in the
crop year 2012-2013 from
2.243 million MT in the
previous crop year ending
Aug. 31, 2012.
The agency allocated 10
percent of the projected
output in the crop year 2012-
2013, or about 235,000 MT
for the US market and 8
percent to the world market.
The balance of 82 percent
was earmarked for the local
requirement.
Data showed that raw sugar
production reached 2.243
million MT in the previous
crop year and had an ending
balance of 30,144 MT for “A”
or US quota sugar, 143,661 MT
for “B” or domestic sugar and
58,793 MT for “D” or world
market sugar.
Ending balance for refined
sugar stood at 199,924 MT, on
top of the raw sugar balance
of 143,661 MT, both of which
represent the domestic buffer
stock.

BASIC Energy Corp. on Thurs-
day said its applications for
geothermal energy exploration
in three areas in Luzon passed
the government’s require-
ments.
Basic Energy disclosed to
the stock exchange it received a
letter from the Energy Depart-
ment dated Aug. 22 stating that
its applications for geothermal
renewable energy service con-
tracts covering three frontier
geothermal areas complied
with the legal, technical and
financial requirements of the
government.
The projects are in East Man-
kayan, Benguet; Mariveles,
Bataan; and Iriga, Camarines Sur.
“These projects are in line
with the 2012 business thrust of
Basic Energy to look into new
projects in renewable energy
development and production,”
the company said.
“With the company’s com-
pliance with the processing and
evaluation requirements of the
DoE, the geothermal renew-
able service contracts for the
abovementioned geothermal
areas shall be executed upon
final approval of the DoE,” Ba-
sic Energy said.
The East Mankayan geother-
mal area lies immediately east
of the Cervantes, Ilocos Sur
geothermal block of Pan Pacif-
ic Power Philippines Inc., south
of the Bontoc-Sadanga block
operated by Magma Energy
Resources and immediately
south of Daklan block operated
by Clean Rock Energy.
The area actually covers
the provinces of Benguet,
Mountain Province and Ifugao.

STOCKS rose for the second day,
sending the benchmark index to its
highest level in a month, on anticipation
policy makers around the world,
including the Bangko Sentral, would
take more actions to support economic
growth.
The Philippine Stock
Exchange index, the 30-
company benchmark index,
added 33 points, or 0.6 percent,
to close at 5,240.50 on Thursday,
ahead of the Bangko Sentral’s
decision to keep the overnight
borrowing rate at a record low
of 3.75 percent. Value turnover
reached P4.9 billion.
The heavier index,
representing all shares, also
increased 16 points, or 0.5
percent, to 3,491.18, as gainers
led losers, 98 to 56, with 49
issues unchanged. Five of the
six counters rose, with only the
property subsector ending in
the red.
Banks traded mostly higher
Thursday. Metropolitan Bank
and Trust Co. added 0.4 percent to
P93.75 while BDO Unibank Inc.
increased 1.2 percent to P59.75.
Bank of the Philippine Islands
rose 3.4 percent to P75.95.
Conglomerates also posted
gains, with Alliance Global
Group Inc. rising 3.1 percent to
P12.78 and Ayala Corp. adding
1 percent to P427. JG Summit
Holdings Inc. increased 1.7
percent to P33.50.
Meanwhile, Asian markets
edged up Thursday, underpinned
by expectations the Federal
Reserve will announce new
measures to stimulate the US
economy.
Japan’s Nikkei 225 index
was up 0.5 percent at 9,008.01
—surpassing 9,000 for the
first time since Aug. 30. South
Korea’s Kospi rose marginally
to 1,950.19 and Hong Kong’s
Hang Seng gained 0.1 percent
to 20,099.09. Australia’s S&P/
ASX 200 fell 0.4 percent to
4,345.20.
Benchmarks in Taiwan, India,
and Indonesia rose. Singapore
and mainland China fell.
The Federal Reserve concludes
a two-day policy meeting
Thursday, and expectations
are high that Fed chief Ben
Bernanke will announce steps
to help the US economy. The
real question was how big those
steps might be.
Tom Kaan, head of equity
sales at Louis Capital Markets in
Hong Kong, said expectations
have been high for US central
bank action since Bernanke
strongly hinted as much in a
speech last month in Jackson
Hole, Wyoming.
“I think he doesn’t have
much choice,” Kaan said. “The
extent is what the markets are
looking for. The size of it.”
The biggest step would be a
third round of bond purchases.
In two previous bond-buying
programs, the Fed bought
more than $2 trillion of
Treasurys and mortgage-
backed securities after the
2008 financial crisis.
Many analysts feel there is
reason for optimism about the
global economic outlook. The
European Central Bank and
the government of China are
among authorities that have
all announced steps to handle
various economic crises or
boost sluggish growth.
“The fact remains there is
a lot of liquidity out there at
low interest rates,” Kaan said.
“There is risk appetite. That
is what is going to carry the
equity markets through.”
The Dow Jones industrial
average rose 0.1 percent
to close at 13,333.35. The
Standard & Poor’s 500 index
rose 0.2 percent to 1,436.56.
The Nasdaq composite index
increased 0.3 percent to
3,114.31.

By Jenniffer B. Austria
PHILIPPINE Business Bank, the thrift banking
arm of Ambassador Alfredo Yao of Zest-O and
Zest Air group, is raising P4.25 billion through an
initial public offering.
Documents filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission showed the bank would offer 101.33
million primary shares at maximum offer price of
P41.94 per share. The offer shares represent 29.5
percent of the company’s outstanding capital stock.
The bank tapped ATK Kim Eng Capital Partners
Inc. as the lead underwriter for the offering.
The company plans to list its shares with the
Philippine Stock Exchange by the fourth quarter.
The bank said it would use the proceeds from
the offering for payment of bank branch licenses
to the Bangko Sentral, expansion of bank network,
implementation of IT projects as well as for general
banking purposes.
The bank currently operates 71 branches,
including 37 in Metro Manila. The bank aims to
put up 85 branches by end of the year and 100
branches by end of 2013.
The bank, which aims to become the bank of
choice for the SME market segment, increased
its branch presence in several commercial and
industrial centers in the country.
It said that it had total assets of P27.76 billion
as of end-June. Loans and deposits grew at a
compounded annual rate of 12.2 percent and
18.6 percent, over the period 2009 to 2011,
respectively.
The bank said it was well positioned to undertake
future fund-raising efforts, after the IPO, to finance
further expansion plans.

Toyota pulled out all the
stops to make the event as ex-
citing as possible starting with a
fellowship night with the media
at the Holiday Inn, Clark before
putting the two variants through
its paces at the Clark Interna-
tional Speedway. “As part of
our international Innovative
Multipurpose Vehicle line up,
both variants will be more bold,
sophisticated and have a more
comfortable suspension set up
to best cater to the require-
ments of the local market,” said
Raymond Rodriguez, First Vice
President for Vehicle Sales of
TMPC.
First introduced in 2005,
the Fortuner and Hilux be-
came an instant hits and con-
tinue to carve a profitable
niche. In the third quarter of
this year, Toyota’s commercial
vehicle fleet cornered 40 per-
cent or 4,103 units sold since
January this year with both the
Fortuner and Hilux variants
leading the race for the coun-
try’s largest vehicle manufac-
turer. The upgrade is meant to
stem the tide of competition
as its American counterparts
Ford and Chevrolet began its
assault to capture a slice of the
consumer market.
The improved versions are
equipped with an advanced
Variable Nozzle Turbocharger
(VNT) Technology with in-
tercooler, which according
to TMPC engineers is more
fuel efficient and powerful by
40 percent. A variable nozzle
vane has been incorporated on
the circumference of the tur-
bine to adjust the flow speed
and pressure of the exhaust
with the intention to improve
fuel economy. Accordingly,
the balance between the ex-
haust back pressure and boost

Text and photos by Dino Ray V. Directo III
IN ITS bid to solidify their grip in
the highly competitive SUV market,
Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation
upgraded two of their hottest selling
variants, the Fortuner and the Hilux.
pressure based on the engine
demand has been optimized
to induce responsive power.
A Direct Current (DC) motor
is used to operate the variable
nozzle vane to help achieve
outstanding engine perfor-
mance. The VNT Technology
is available for the 4X4 V and
4X2 G Diesel (Manual and Au-
tomatic) Fortuner. The VNT is
also offered in the Hilux 4X4
G, 4X2 G and 4x2 E variants.
The media got to feel the new
engine upgrade by driving both
the Fortuner and Hilux at the
Clark International Speedway.
Organizers prepared a technical
course for us to test the accel-
eration and handling properties
of the improved versions. “The
spring rate of the rear suspen-
sion has been changed to si-
multaneously achieve excellent
handling and ride comfort. In
addition, damping force of the
front and rear shock absorbers
have been optimized to accom-
modate the change in spring
rate of the rear suspension,”
Rodriguez.
Interior appointments have
also been upgraded starting with
the audio/video system. The For-
tuner 4x4 Diesel V, 4x2 Diesel
A/T G and all Hilux 4x4 variants
will be equipped with a 6.5 Digi-
tal LCD Touch screen with DVD
player and iPOD connectivity.
An optional Navigational system
is also offered which offers the
most number of point of interest
in the country.
Price tag for the new Fortuner
starts at P1,759,000 for the high
end 4x4 V with a 3.0 liter diesel
engine. The top of the line Hi-
lux G equipped with a 3.0 liter
engine retails for P1,474,000. It
goes on sale this month in Toyo-
ta’s 31 dealers nationwide.

which is the choice of
barkadas.
IN THIS fast-food age when convenience and eating on-the-go are considered the norm,
not a few parents believe that preparing home-cooked meals for children to take to school
is still the way to go. After all, active children need well-balanced meals to fuel their
bodies and keep them going all day.
Unfortunately, many kids are inherently picky eaters, thus, their parents’ never-ending struggle
to come up with lunchbox fare that packs in flavor and health benefits. San Miguel Great Food

prepare, kid-friendly recipes. With a little personal touch and a hefty serving of love, they’re sure

THE Xperia acro S and Xperia go are not the first water-resistant
phones in the market but they are certainly the most attractive.
Patrick Larraga, head of Mobile Business for Sony Philippines, says the phrase “dare
to get wet” is one of the phones’ underlying key messages. .
“It can mean literally being able get the phones wet, yes; but figuratively speaking,
‘daring to get wet’ is all about living in the moment and enjoying the things that are mean-
ingful to you—experiences that are refreshing and liberating. This is something that we
hope to communicate to Filipinos via the Xperia go and acro S. We want them to really
live life and savor every moment; to do things that they love and not get stuck in a routine;
to find a balance between work and play, and make substance a priority,” explains Larraga.
The Xperia acro S and Xperia go
represent the brand’s latest water, dust
and scratch-resistant models.
The 110-gram Xperia go (avail-
able in Black, White, and Yellow)
has a 3.5” Reality Display with Sony
Mobile BRAVIA for superb viewing,
a 5MP fast capture camera, and pre-
loaded Fitness and Sports applica-
tions, all encased in a sleek and styl-
ish package.
The phone looks good. It’s quite
slim and relatively compact while the
scratch-resistant screen is soft. It’s the
perfect phone for those of us who are
a little more clumsy than careful.
“I tend to carry my phone even
while dancing, so I’ve had many pre-
vious experiences where I’ve dropped
my phone during rehearsals,” says
dancer and TV personality Gab Va-
lenciano.
“I love documenting great sights—
even looks I love—while roaming in the
streets, and the phone’s fast capture cam-
era does the job well for me. The camera
goes from sleep to snap in less than two
seconds so I never miss a great photo op.
Plus, it helps that I can still bring it out in
the rain,” says stylista Laureen Uy.
Meanwhile, the Xperia acro S (avail-
able in Black and White) is an HD smart-
phone with a 4.3” 720p scratch-resistant
HD display powered by Sony’s Mobile
BRAVIA Engine, 12MP fast capture
camera, and full 1080p HD video record-
ing capabilities. It also features quick and
seamless connectivity via an HDMI port
for easy multimedia viewing on the big
screen, as well as built-in Sony media
apps (Album, Walkman, and Movies) for
the user’s enjoyment.
“The camera and video quality of
the Xperia acro S are really impres-
sive. Off-duty, I still enjoy recording
moments with family and friends, and
this phone has all that I need to be able
to take amazing HD footage wherever
I am. I can also easily enjoy viewing
them on TV,” says director Paul So-
riano.
The Xperia go possesses the high-
est level of water and dust resistance
in a smartphone, and the Xperia acro
S the highest level of water resistance
in an HD smartphone, making both
extremely durable options for today’s
individuals. Both also feature Wet Fin-
ger Tracking, allowing one to use each
phone even with wet fingers; as well as
enable the user to enjoy taking under-
water photos and videos with ease.
The Xperia go is already available
with an SRP of P14,490; while the
Xperia acro S has an SRP of Php26,990
at the following Xperia concept stores:
Metro Manila - Glorietta, Robinson’s
Galleria, Robinson’s Midtown, SM
Fairview, SM Megamall, SM Mall of
Asia, and SM North EDSA; Luzon
- SM Bacoor, SM Baguio, and SM
San Fernando; Visayas – Ayala Center
Cebu, and SM Cebu; and Mindanao
– Abreeza Davao and Gaisano Mall

THE Greenwich Special Overload Pizza was
recently launched at the Megatrade Hall function
room of SM Megamall via a well-attended event
that saw Greenwich’s unrelenting dedication to
give the best ever pizza experience to its ever-
growing number of satisfied consumers.
“Greenwich Special Overload Pizza is every
pizza lover’s dream,” said Lulu De Castro,
Greenwich Marketing Manager. “It tops our
pizza list simply because it has everything anyone
can ask for in a pizza. It is overloaded with 13
mouth-watering toppings that can satisfy any pizza
craving making it better than any other.”
Last July 26 at the media launch in SM
Megamall Megatrade Hall, several personalities
showed how Greenwich Special Overload Pizza
can bring a change of heart to any barkada. Eric
Tai, Andrew Wolff and Chris Everingham of
the Philippine Volcanoes, and Mia Bayuga, Tin
Gamboa, Jessica Mendoza and Andi Manzano,
collectively known as the radio vixens of Magic

The perfect
WEEKEND
words and images by Lito Cinco
SAN Pablo City, which is just over an hour away's drive from
Manila, has its seven lakes as a major attraction.
These seven lakes--Sampalok,
Palakpakin, Bunot, Mohicap,
Calibato, and the twin lakes of
Pandin and Yambo--have different
legends about their origins
although scientists have described
them as crater lakes of volcanos
from way back in time.
But this writer, in a recent
trip there with his family on a
weekend, found out that one of
the best destinations is the pristine
Lake Pandin, which is around
15 minutes from the city plus a
15-minute trek from the highway.
The first sighting alone is
worth it. Lake Pandin is
surrounded by greenery
with very few man
made structures around it. There
are bamboo rafts that visitors can
ride across the lake, with local
women doing the oaring as part
of a livelihood program.
Legends talk about a beautiful
lady named Pandin, who was born
to a previously childless couple
on the condition that she does not
step on land ever. Unfortunately,
Pandin fell in love with Yambo
and since he did not know about
the condition given to her, he made
her step on earth.
The ground grumbled, followed
by a heavy downpour and lo and
behold, Pandin and Yambo were
turned into twin lakes separated
only by a
small strip of land. Once across
Pandin aboard the raft, visitors
have the option of climbing a small
and vey short manmade trail and
over the side, one can see Lake
Yambo.
We had our lunch all packed-
-home-cooked crispy pata and
rice--and since the bamboo raft,
oared by Zosima Villanueva and
Marilou Salire, two of the 16 lady
oarers in the lake, had a a covered
bamboo table and benches in the
middle of the raft, that was where
we ate even when there was a
short downpour that did nothing
to dampen our spirits.
My wife and the kids also tried
their hand at fishing. After all,
this deep lake, which is about
180 feet deep, boasts
of tilapia and

Unfortunately, we could not
prove it as the fish refused to bite,
so we contented ourselves with
simply enjoying the beautiful
view while sipping fresh buco
juice straight from the buco,
which came with the price of
P180 per head for the bamboo raft
ride but was well worth it.
Since it was an overnight trip
for the family, we looked for
a good lodging place and the
Tahanan ni Aling Meding, a nice
vacation house- turned- hotel, was
the obvious choice. This 10-room
place is located beside Sampalok
Lake.
Aside from a panoramic view
of the lake, the hotel also affords
a view of Mt. Cristobal while at
its back could be seen glimpses of
mystical Mt. Banahaw. The hotel
rooms are nice and reasonably
priced. The rooms have WiFi,
which my youngest daughter
described as the best part of the
stay. We passed up though the
chance to dip into the cold waters
of the small pools of the hotel,
which is owned by the Borja
family, who resides in the United
States except for one son, Wilson,
who has returned here to manage
the place.
The following morning, it was
time to try our hand at fishing, this
time at Sampalok Lake, and renting
another bamboo raft, we were
brought to the middle of the lake,
and not surprisingly, my daughter
caught maybe around 7 or 8 big
tilapia. I say not surprising because
she caught them inside a fishpen
after she gave up trying to catch
something in the open water.
Going to Pandin Lake and
staying at Tahanan ni Aling
Meding is a good way to spend
the weekend if you are a family
that enjoys back-to-nature outings
instead of going to the mall.

Tomorrow, GMA Network reboots
Pepito Manaloto’s life story in a new
sitcom on Sunday night, right after
Imbestigador.
Pepito Manaloto, Ang Tunay na
Kuwento follows the life of Pepito
years after he won the lottery, after
looking at a TV show produced by a
network that the guy thinks is an ex-
aggeration of what really happened to
him and his family. In other words,
this new sitcom, while set in the pres-
ent time, will try to correct the mis-
conceptions of the previous show.
Michael V. is once more Pepito
Manaloto, and he is joined by some of
the co-stars in the previous show, like
Manilyn Reynes as Elsa Manaloto,
Angel Satsumi as Clarissa Manaloto
and Jake Var gas as Chito Manaloto.
John Feir as Patrick, Ronnie
Henares as Tommy, Mosang as
Baby, Janna Dominguez as Maria,
and Ar thur Solinap as Robert also
return to the sitcom. Completing the
cast are Jessa Zar agoza as Deedee
and Nova Villa as Mimi. They are the
new addition to the Manaloto saga.
Pepito Manaloto and his family’s
rags to riches experience earned them
a TV show, but because they thought it
didn’t reveal the true story, they want
the TV network to totally scrap it.
Instead, they came up with the
idea to show exactly what goes on in
the Manaloto household by having a
camera crew film their lives 24 hours
a day, seven days a week.
The merry mix of characters of
Pepito and his wife Elsa, their chil-
dren Chito and Clarissa, their house
help staff composed of Patrick, Ma-
ria, Robert, Baby, and their neighbors
Tommy, plus the mother-daughter
tandem of Deedee and Mimi, will
bring more color to the life story of
Pepito Manaloto.
These different characters sur-
rounding Pepito will definitely make
his life a lot more interesting.
New UniSilver Time
ambassador s
Good news for fans of the teen-
age Kapuso stars Der r ick Monas-
ter io, Bea Binene, Bar bie For teza,
Joshua Dionisio, Enzo Pineda, and
Julie Anne San Jose. They are now
UniSilver’s new Time Ambassadors.
The teen idols now have exclusive
watch series named after them, cour-
tesy of the biggest and most trusted
watch company in the country, Un-
iSilver Time.
Tween Hearts members officially
signed their contracts with UniSilver
Time as endorsers of the said compa-
ny, and will be known as “TIMEbas-
sadors” or “UniSilver Time Ambas-
sadors.”
According to Rosiebeth Padua,
Sales and Marketing manager of
UniSilver Time, the wholesome and
good image of the teen idols were
what gave UniSilver the push to ac-
quire the stars as their endorsers and
time ambassadors.
“UniSilver TIME has a very wide
range of watch collections. And one
of its targeted audiences are the
members of the young generation.
Since UniSilver Time is an advocate
of youth empowerment, it has cre-
ated products that would remind the
youth to be responsible by observ-
ing time properly, thereby giving
each young heart the power to reach
their dreams. We believe that the
Tween Hearts members will serve as
the youth’s inspiration for years to
come,” said Padua.
The management of UniSilver
Time is hopeful that Derrick, Bea,
Barbie, Joshua, Enzo and Julie Anne
would serve as good examples for
their fans all over the country.
What’s in your
refr iger ator ?
Who would ever forget the chill-
ing “Pridyider” episode in the first
installment of the horror franchise
Shake, Rattle & Roll with J anice
de Belen and directed by Ishmael
Ber nal?
The mystery that shrouded the
possessed refrigerator left a mark in
moviegoers’ minds such that it earned
rave reviews for its uniqueness.
In fact, to this day, the episode re-
mains to be in the list of the best hor-
ror flicks even when the SR&R fran-
chise continues to draw screams and
scare movie buffs in theaters.
So, mother and daughter, Lily
and Roselle Montever de, decided
to give “Pridyider” a fresh version
this year and make it into a full-
length horror flick.
The end result is an even big-
ger, better and more polished
product, the trailer of which hor-
ror film lovers love to talk about
even this early.
From its original cast, only Jan-
ice has been retained to play the part
of the character who-holds-the key
to the dark secret that surrounds the
mysterious refrigerator.
The refrigerator now belongs
to her daughter, played by Andi
Eigenmann, who inherits her par-
ents’ (Janice and husband J oel
Tor r e’s) old house.
As Tina, Andi’s character is sent
abroad by her father, unaware that
her parents’ marriage is suffering a
serious blow.
She comes home when she’s all
grown up and stays in her parents’
old house.
The unsuspecting Andi is oblivi-
ous to the fact that the old refrigera-
tor is the root cause of the mysterious
disappearance of people she loves.
Her childhood friend (portrayed by
JM de Guzman), helps Andi uncover
and solve the terrifying mystery.
Pridyider hits theaters on Sept. 19.
Rico Ilar de son of radio icon-turned-
politician Eddie Ilar de directed the
movie. With Janice, Andi, and JM, in
the cast, are Baron Geisler , Ronnie
Lazaro and Bekimon. Introducing in
the film is Venus Raj.
Mona Louise Rey in
Aso ni San Roque
After making the audience cry
in Munting Heredera and the first
installment of Luna Blanca, Mona
Louise Rey is back as Fatima, a blind
girl with a good heart and daughter
of a mortal man to a mythical crea-
ture called “manananggal.” Behind
Fatima’s persona is a prophecy that
is said to end the life of all evil crea-
tures on earth.
Joining Mona in her magical
adventures is Anghel, a golden re-
triever who will guide her through
her quests and battles to defeat the
evil forces.
In the story, Fatima was separat-
ed from her parents at a very young
age. An old gay man named Mother
Ben, who happens to be under the
control of a gang, took Fatima un-
der his care. From then on, Mother
Ben became the sole protector of
Fatima. He uses Fatima’s disability
to help her escape all the hardships
and mischief brought about by the
cruel gang members.
As Fatima turns seven years
old, the search for her intensifies
as witches, centaurs, mermaids and
other creatures join forces to pre-
vent Fatima from fulfill-
ing the prophecy.
Up to what point can
Mother Ben protect Fati-
ma from the gang men?
And will he still be able
to guard Fatima against
the evil creatures lurk-
ing to kill the girl who
is said to end all evil
creatures on earth?
Adding enchant-
ment to the series are
Nova Villa as Ofelia, Pen
Medina as Mother Ben; TJ
Trinidad as Mateo, LJ Reyes as
Lourdes; Buboy Garovillo as Noah;
Rich Asuncion as Bernice; Gardo
Versoza as Kanlaon; Paolo Contis as
Sento; Angelika dela Cruz as Gamod;
Gwen Zamora as Anaira; and Eddie
Garcia as Supremo..

Beauty talks and
solving problems
Life And Style With Ricky Reyes
have been receiving inquiries on
beauty problems. Some relate stories
of hope and dreams-come-true.
“We invite letter-senders to email
and share with us not only problems
but inspiring stories. We, likewise,
wish to imbue in the minds of those
feeling miserable that—while there
is life there is hope,” says Ricky
Reyes.
This Saturday’s episode features
“Usapang Wig” where different
types of hairpieces are introduced to
those with thinning hair and nearing
baldness. As they say, the hair is the
crowning glory of one’s face. A beau-
tiful hair boosts a person’s self confi-
dence, as well.
It is observed that as we near mid-
dle age, some facial imperfections
start to annoy us. In “Say Goodbye to
Eyebags” Reyes seeks the help of a
cosmetic surgeon to demonstrate the
easy and not so expensive method of
eyebag removal in answer to a view-
er’s query.
“Pasan Ko Ang Kapatid Ko,” is
the story of two brothers. Geor ge has
congenital polio and becomes depen-
dent on his brother Giovanni who is
more than willing to carry him every-
where. Both finished their studies in
Siquijor and are now trying their luck
in Manila.
Also featured is the story of Miko
Banayo who became blind after an
unknown and unscrupulous man
splashed his face with muriatic acid.
Find out if there is life for the ill- fat-
ed victim after that nightmarish expe-
rience.
Life and Style, 10 a.m.every Sat-
urday on GMA News TV channel 11.
SHOPPERS will have the rare op-
portunity to enjoy authentic Mexican
music and dance when the Gr upo
Achai Mar iachi Ensemble performs
at four SM Supermalls.
A joint project between the Em-
bassy of Mexico and SM, the group
will be performing at the SM Mall of
Asia Music Hall on Sept. 15, at The
Block at SM City North Edsa on Sept.
17, and at SM Southmall Food Street
on Sept. 19. This will culminate in an
exclusive reception at SM Megamall
Event Center on Sept. 21. All perfor-
mances will be held from 2-3 p.m.,
and are open to the public.
Grupo Achai is a set of students
from the northwestern state of Sinaloa,
Mexico, committed to preserving and
promoting Mexican traditional music
and dance. The group was founded
in 1985 by Regino Lopez, a former
dancer of the prestigious Mexico’s
National Folklor ic Ballet.
Consisting of a mariachi band,
singers and dancers, it is composed
of college students who joined the
group in order to promote Mexican
traditions. The group has travelled
extensively throughout Europe, Asia
and Latin America, showcasing per-
formances that highlight Mexico’s
rich musical tradition. This is Grupo
Achai’s first performance in the Phil-
ippines.
Mariachi started out as a regional
folk style known as “ Son Jali-
science ” in the central western part
of Mexico. It was initially performed
with just string instruments and musi-
cians dressed in the white pants and
shirts that peasant farmers used to
wear.
From the 19
th
to 20
th
century, mi-
grations from rural areas into cities,
along with the Mexican government’s
cultural promotion steadily changed
this “ Son Jaliscience” style into
“mariachi” as the “urban” style.
Changes of the music include influ-
ences from other music such as waltz,
the addition of trumpets and the use
of outfits by mariachi musicians.
The musical style started gaining
national distinction in the first half of
the 20
th
century, with its promotion
during presidential inaugurations and
on the radio in the 1920s. However,
its use in a genre of Mexican film s
called the comedia ranchera in the
1930s and 1940s made it to the inter-
national scene and became a national
symbol of Mexico.
The Grupo Achai performance is
one of the many exciting events at
SM Supermalls.
People
…are talking about
Nor a Aunor
She isn’t the one and only superstar
for nothing. And no matter how
haters mock her for not winning the
acting plum in the recently concluded
Venice Film Festival, they can’t deny
the fact that no other star in local
industry has reached or equaled what
Ate Guy has achieved in her career
as an actor.
One True Love
It is not just a popular drama on
GMA Network. The Alden Richar d
and Louise delos Reyes starrer series
is now the most-watched primetime
program in Mega Manila, ending the
reign of Walang Hanggan.
Aiza Seguer r a
She walked home with the
highest honor at Star Awards for
Music last week. This wasn’t taken
lightly by those who don’t like her.
But had they known that she is
celebrating her 25
th
year in business
and that she’ll have a concert at the
Big Dome, they wouldn’t even dare
to ask why she won.
…are not talking
about
Piolo Pascual
He must have heard the latest
talks that KC has found the man that
makes her life “kumikinang-kinang.”
Barely a year after their terrible split,
Piolo seems to be still enjoying being
a bachelor. Do people still blame
Mar icar Reyes?
Diana Zubir i
The starlet has just signed as
Kapamilya and will appear in a
primetime series top-billed by Ger ald
Ander son and Cr istine Reyes. Yes,
Diana hops to a station where she
believes the grass is greener. Little
did she know that competition is
much tougher on the other side of
fence.
Sar ah Geronimo
Is the pop princess becoming too
complacent now? Sarah has just
released a CD that compiles tracks
already covered by other singers.
Some people fear, if Sarah won’t
make a drastic move to reinvent
her music, her bright star would
wane sooner than her loyal fans
expected.
