A test of faith in a world of gore

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

this month, cebu’s media is celebrating the annual PRESS FREEDOM WEEK. the celebration in 1999 had me writing about my then 8-month-old life as journalist. in yet another failed attempt at cleaning my room of age-old clutter, i came across that article. damn, dugaya na diay nako aning trabahoa uy.


IT PAYS to be the silent type. Clamming up unless whining is necessary gives you the privilege to do little crazy things without people asking you for an explanation. They won’t give a damn. Let him suffer in silence, they’d say. He’s good at it anyway.

Deciding to work for Sun.Star Daily was the craziest thing I did this year (who in his right mind aspires to be a journalist with philosophy as background?) . Or better yet, it was the latest in an endless series of crazy things I had been doing since my decision to wear a permanent shark tattoo on my back five years ago.

Sun.Star Columnists

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

if you can’t read the text in the sun.star house ad below, i copied it here for you. this came out in last Saturday’s issue of the paper. I need to post this to feed the ego. so spare me the raised eyebrows.

it would be nice if you can also comment on who in the list of sun.star columnists is your favorite and why. i don’t have their names here. No need, because when you hate or love a columnist, it’s certain that the name is etched in your mind. whatever you write here about their columns they won’t know because they don’t visit this site. so feel free. but expect my editor’s instinct to work when a punch hits the crotch. and you can bet your ass no comment about INSOYMADA will make it here.


“Individually, each has his own voice, her own niche, varying in substance and style from the others. Collectively, they pack a wallop, an enormous force in shaping public opinion. Each columnist seeks to inform, entertain, or inspire, yet also questions, teases, challenges, disputes. Motivated by noblest of motives: public good.”
