The UP PEP Squad: 2009 UAAP Cheerleading Dance Competition 2nd Runner Up.

Thank you UP PEP for once again making the whole UP community proud. Again, you did not settle for anything less as you have always aimed higher. You have been raising the standards of UAAP CDC year after year after year. The level of difficulty of the stunts… everything. Your growth has always been exponential.  True that, there’s no other way but UP. 😉

Well, being third placers this time is nothing to be ashamed of.  Sure, the errors may have caused us the 3-peat but I don’t really care. With your superb performances for the past two years (‘superb’ is an understatement’), I truly believe you have nothing else to prove. And I highly commend you for choosing a theme that shows what UP life is all about. Your way of giving tribute to our Alma Mater through your UP-centric theme/routine surely put a smile in the faces of every single Isko and Iska. Thank you, UP PEP. 🙂





Like mother, like son

Mom’s a cheater. Dad’s a cheater. What then should we expect from their offspring?

PRESIDENTIAL son and Pampanga Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo has failed to declare in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN) for the last two years a $1.32 million or P63.7 million beachfront property in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, which he bought and then transferred to his wife Angela in 2006.

The house, located at 1655 Beach Park Blvd in Foster City in San Mateo County, is now up for sale, but does not appear in Mikey’s 2007 and 2008 SALN.

Read the rest of the Vera Files story here.

As what seems to be a standard way of dealing with criticisms, Arroyo lashed out on the writers by saying:

The congressman said the report was misleading either due to the writers’ malicious intent or lack of knowledge on the matter.

“Unfortunately, either the writer or writers deliberately imposed a malicious twist on the story or they lack knowledge on the legal aspects regarding corporations,” he said.

LOL at this crap on hitting at the writers just like that. But hey, in the interview below, he admitted that in 2002, he was not used to properly declare his net worth. LOOOOOL.


That was painful to watch. Really.

Kudos to Winnie Monsod for asking pressing questions and not letting Arroyo get away with his lies. At the end of the interview, the million dollar question of  “where did Arroyo get the money to acquire the million dollar property?”  was not answered.  Ditto with “how did Arroyo’s net worth ballooned from P50,000 in 1993 to a whopping P156,000,000 in 2009?”

Instead, this crap kept saying, “If in doubt, sue me!” or “Talk to my lawyers!”.

That’s arrogance. The Arroyos have always acted as if they can get away with anything. As in, ANYTHING!

Haay. Welcome to the Philippines.
