Bastusan

I found Willie Revilliame’s  remarks pertaining to the showing of the inset video of the wake of the late President Cory Aquino during a dancing and giling-giling portion appropriate. But how he executed it was the bastos part.

But if the Aquino family have already forgiven willie, why can’t those na nakikia sawsaw sa issue forgive him too and stop?

Ano po ang pagkakaiba sa pambabastos ni willie sa mga nambabastos kay willie?

Dito yata papasok ang kasabihang “Birds of the same feather make bastos at each other?

It always amazes me whenever i see an awsome painting or a marvelous sculpture or a theater performer gives a stunning performance in front of an audience. And there comes a time when i want to be like the people behind these works or be able to produce such nice works of art.

It is just right that our artists are given recognition for their great work. And pick among the best of the best in their field. It gives them pride and dignity for their accomplishments. And wouldn’t it elate you even more if your own peers bestowed you the recognition? It becomes sweeter, as if you’re on the top of the world.

But what’s worst is being self recognized  by  disregarding  standards and guidelines just so you’d be part of the final list to be given recognition.

As one friend said “Kung hindi ka kasali, wag kang umepal”

I woke up today with a very sad news that Former President Corazon Aquino has died of cardiac arrest, possibly a complication due to colon cancer, something that she’s been fighting for a while now.

I was in the hospital when the famous 1986 people power happened. I can still remember hearing tanks outisde of the hospital window.  I was only 5 years old then. I didn’t ask my parents what was happening. I was more focused on the needle that was stuck on my arm.
