Ulysses is the Roman name for Odysseus who after taking part in sacking Troy, went all around in adventures in the Mediterranean Sea to go home to his admirably loyal wife to knock down all his wife’s shameless suitors who had presumed his death and had taken it that h...

I already knew beforehand that this year’s November 1 would be different.  But I thought it would be unlike those of the past years’ because we won’t be going to the cemeteries for All Saints Day traditions in compliance to the nationwide restrictions due to prevention...

Brace yourselves; there’s more to come.  That was the first traditional typhoon that  thrashed the place locally in a long time.  By traditional, I mean the type that rages on and ravages with rains and winds that howl for hours and leaves us all in darkness, desolate...

I wanted to talk about something else.  But this issue still keeps lingering around.  Protests pop up here and there every once in a while; and every other corner sari-sari store tambay tosses his two cents  on the topic. I would like to defend the DepEd modules, but t...

I didn’t want to talk about this because we’re all supposed to be as one community, as one nation rallying around to make it work, and not to make it worse.  


After DOH and Philhealth, I guess now, it’s DepEd’s turn to be strapped on a stake, so people could throw  tom...

I had the card laminated. I always carry it around; in case I get barred from entering without it.  But I have not had a firsthand experience of a guard asking for my E-Salvar card. I heard a band of barristers have filed a case against the city’s implementation of the...

Is the President going to postpone it again?  After he abruptly pardoned Pemberton, I get this feeling that he could have an unexpected sudden change of heart anytime.  


Tradition has long held its start on June. DepEd proposed to have it start on August 23 becaus...

I may have escaped Covid-19 infection; but it seems we couldn’t escape the whole day brownout.  It has been semi-regular that whole day weekend brownouts revolve around  the CASURECO districts.  For a scheduled Saturday, homebodies endure the baking heat and hiatus fro...

There won’t be parades  around downtown Naga this September.  That is clear.  That is certain.  Definitely, we won’t be expecting any sudden announcement that abruptly, policies would change and drum and lyre corps and students clad in military gala would be marching d...

Had it been normal circumstances, there would have been flea markets along the city streets, strings of flaglets across buildings, and drums and xylophones would be banging and clanging in rehearsals in the Plaza.  Now, I’m not even sure if the Traslacion Friday would...

So, have you already registered in that app?  My sister was reluctant in giving private information.  But I guess they couldn’t scam me with my address and birthday.  I guess, as long as I didn’t divulge any bank account number; they couldn’t rob me.  Oh, wait, I uploa...

The neighbourhood can now let out a sigh of relief.  The nine close contacts of one person who tested positive for Covid-19 have tested negative.  That is a monument of the prevention of further infection in the looban  and further around the barangay.  Had at least on...

So, since last weekend, going out  has meant you have to put on your face shield on; not just a face mask, a shield to cover your entire face.  This is supposed to reduce the spread of the virus.  Personally, the face shield feels more comfortable than the sometimes su...

August 14, 2020

Naga recently marked another Covid death.  National data continue to break records in daily cases.  I wonder if it’s still a wave with a single crest or multiple peaks that compete against each other in height.  The Philippines has even broken Southeast Asian record; t...

A couple of months ago, when enhanced community quarantine was eased to general community quarantine, then there were different variations of modified and extreme, the Filipino nation, despite scientific statistical analysis, had high hopes on the advent of some sort o...
