Kung May Facebook Nung Martial Law

NAIIYAK ako pag naiisip ko na 40 years ago, may mga tao who were just as nice, as intelligent, as caring or just as plain funny as our friends here in FB---pero wala na sila ngayon...

All because they disappeared, were tortured or murdered during MARTIAL LAW!

On the 40th Anniversary of ML, if any of your FB friends will just disappear, his/her FB account shut down & all our FB postings/comments about him/her be subject to government scrutiny -- think how that was a common story albeit less high-tech during the Marcos dictatorship.

We will NEVER HAVE BACK the lives of those men & women whose dreams were snuffed-off early by the most corrupt family in Philippine history.  But please naman, NEVER HAVE BACK the same people who plucked out this entire generation of promising youths na kung mga nabuhay sana ay ka-FB pa natin ngayon (at baka nagse-SHARE or nagla-LIKE lang right now sa posting na `to.)

NEVER AGAIN -- to the Marcoses!

Gods & Monsters

Sa tatlong tao na matagal kong minahal at inidolo... ngayong gabi, hindi ko lang kayo itinatakwil, ipinapangako ko -- LALAGPASAN ko pa kayo! Ngayon alam ko nang ang sasama pala ng ugali nyo. Hindi kayo karapat-dapat sa aking paghanga (at lalong hindi pala kayo ganun kagaling)!

"Copywriting" for DOT - Episode 2

Filipinos are in the top 15 happiest people on earth and rank 9th as the most patriotic citizens of their country (we even outdid Japan & landed as the only Asian finalist.) Ergo, the "It's More Fun in the Philippines" campaign indeed appeals to a majority of our countrymen because it combines these two world rankings into one formulaic slogan: being FUN and being PRO-Philippines.

That said, I am just beginning to discover how the words FUN and PHILIPPINES can go together in many positive associations. Or, at least some associations can be tweaked as to become FUNNY, another very Filipino trait -- making light of issues other nations may even find tragic :)

It's More FUN in the Philippines

As my friends well know by now, I have suddenly been afflicted by this it's-more-fun fever spread by the new DOT campaign.

Indeed I had FUN surfing the net for pictures contributed by fellow enthusiasts until I thought of coming-up with a few myself. Here are some of the pics I have randomly downloaded from the internet bearing the captions I have added (I claim no ownership to any of the photos unless otherwise stated.)

I'll include these newly captioned photographs in my next youtube video project but until then, I'm posting here a preview. Clearly, here is a new photo-editing & copywriting hobby any Filipino can have FUN with.
