it_is_a_mystery_by_ToFB_The_BaconatorSa panahon ngayon, napakalakas ng kumpetisyon pagdating sa paghahanap ng trabaho.  Napakaraming graduates ang nag-uunahan na mag-apply para makamit ang matamis na OO ng isang employer.  May mga ilan na tingin palang e “you’re hired” na agad ang maririnig nila.  Pero karamihan ay napag-iiwanan at di man lang makakuha ng interview.  Ano nga ba ang mga misteryosong kababalaghan sa paghahanap ng trabaho?

Eto ang SAMPUNG (10) MISTERYO at  KABABALAGHAN KUNG BAKIT WALA KA PANG TRABAHO.

1)  DI KA NAG-A-APPLY.

Mangilang-ngilan lang sa atin ang habulin ng trabaho.  Ito yung mga taong hindi na kailangan mag-apply pero may mga opportunidad na naghihintay.  So kung hindi ka kabilang sa mga taong ito, ano ang gagawin?  Mag-apply.

Huwag ma-surpresa kung wala ka pang trabaho kung ni resume e wala ka pa namang sina submit. Kung nagtataka ka na wala ka pang trabaho pero di ka naman nag-aapply, ito lang masasabi ko sa iyo:

e di wow

2) HINDI MAAYOS ANG RESUME MO.

Resume is the key para makakuha ka ng interview.  Kung sa resume palang ay di na maayos, baka di ka na bigyan ng chance for an interview dahil mag-rereflect ito sa kung anong klaseng emleyado ka.  Maraming samples sa internet na pwede mong gayahin kaya di dapat rason na di mo alam gumawa ng resume.

3) HINDI KA NAG-AAYOS KAPAG PUMUPUNTA KA FOR INTERVIEW.

I have interviewed a lot of applicants at nagtataka talaga ako sa karamihan na hindi nag-aayos pag nag papa-interview.  Meron yung mag-aapply for a managerial position pero naka-maong at t-shirt papuntang interview.

Yung mga iba naman e naka-buddy bag na parang maniningil ng pangutang sa palengke, others ay di man lang nag suklay ng bangs

Your unkempt bangs can cause you to lose your chance to get an interview. Your unkempt bangs can cause you to lose your chance to get an interview.

At di ko maintindihan yung iba kung saan humugot ng lakas ng loob para isuot ang t-shirt na ito:

lazy and proud

Dito palang ay masasabi ko na na “you’re fired before you even get hired!”.

Pag-isipang mabuti kung ano ang magiging itsura sa pagpasa ng resume at sa interview dahil first impressions last.

Marami pong tips sa internet on how to dress up before going for an interview, mag search po because this is one major reason kung bakit di ka nakukuha sa trabaho.

4) HINDI SWAK ANG QUALIFICATIONS MO SA TRABAHONG INA-APPLAYAN MO.

When I was a fresh graduate, I thought that I can just apply to any kind of job na matipuhan ko and will get it.  Pero hindi ganun ang kalakaran.  Employers look for your background and your past job experiences.  Siyempre kung elementary teacher ang hanap nila, di na nila pag-aaksayan ng panahon na interviewin ang isang HRM graduate na ang past experience e pagtratrabaho sa mga restaurants and hotels.  Kaya huwag ka magtataka kung di ka tinatawagan for an interview.

5) KAAWAY MO ANG LINAGAY MO SA “CHARACTER REFERENCE” NG RESUME MO.

Argument Carefully choose your character references because this will make or break your chances in getting the job.

Isiping mabuti kung sino ang ilalagay sa character reference mo dahil ang mga taong ito will make or break your chances in getting the job.

Give them a heads up na baka may tumawag sa kanila dahil baka tarayan nila ang prospective employer mo kung di nila kilala ito.

6) DINALA MO ANG NANAY MO NUNG MAGSUBMIT KA NG RESUME OR NOONG MAG-PA INTERVIEW KA.

Don't bring your mother or a guardian with you if you are going to apply for a job. It doesn't look good and will only show that you can't stand on your own. Don’t bring your mother or a guardian with you if you are going to apply for a job. It doesn’t look good and will only show that you can’t stand on your own.

Kung nasa tamang edad ka na, huwag mo na dalhin ang nanay mo or guardian mo sa pag-aapply ng trabaho na may pa-coach coach pa siya kung ano ang isasagot mo sa interview while you are waiting for your turn.  Kung nakita ito ng prospective employer mo e goodbye trabaho ka na.  It makes an impression kasi that you cannot stand on your own, pano pa kaya kung nasa trabaho ka na?

7) MADUMI ANG FB ACCOUNT MO.

Karamihan ng employers will check your FB account before they even interview you.  Sa mga mahilig mag-FB, dito makikita kung anong klaseng pagkatao meron ka.  Kaya sa mga mahilig mag-drama at mag-litanya sa FB, medyo iwas iwas muna.

Kung maraming natatanggal dahil sa fb posts, pano pa kaya kung pa-apply ka palang?

Ito ang isang example:

teacher post Post ito ng teacher na natanggal sa trabaho. Kung mag-aapply ito, aba medyo mahihirapan siya, di pala niya mahal ang trabaho niya e.

8) NAKASAKAY MO SA JEEP ANG HR MANAGER AT TINARAYAN MO ITO.

I know of an instance na may isang aplikante on her way to a job interview, nakasakay niya ang isang babae, nagpa-abot ng pamasahe yung babae sa kanya, tinarayan niya ito at hindi inabot ang pamasahe.  Pagdating sa kumpanyang kanyang ina-applayan, it turned out na yung babaeng tinarayan niya ay —- ang HR MANAGER.

sapul na sapul

Moral of the story:  It pays to be kind always. hehehe

9) NATULALA KA SA INTERVIEW.

Yung tipong ang tanong palang e:  “Tell me about yourself” and you go like:

freak out Te, tell them daw about you.

Bago sumabak sa interview, mag-research sa internet kung anong mga possible questions sa mga trabahong pinapasukan mo.  Also, there is a technique on how to answer that first question, practice lang ang kailangan.  I will share the techniques in this blog soon.

10) WALANG BAKANTE SA INA-APPLAYAN MO.

Kung may “NO VACANCY” sign, huwag nang ipagpilitan na parang nagsisinungaling sila. Don’t be like:

di nga

So ayan, yan ang sampung misteryo at kababalaghan kung bakit wala ka pang trabaho.  Ang unang gagawin mo ngayon kung gusto mong magkatrabaho ay MAG-APPLY.

5 IDEAL WALKING SPOTS IN BAGUIO CITY

Heavy traffic has always been a problem in Baguio City especially during summer and holidays.  Due to the high influx of vehicles, there have been one proposal after another to convert open spaces into parking lots.  The city is also trying its best not to allow parking in any area to avoid clogging of roads.  Just look at these NO PARKING signs!

Unless gusto mong magbayad ng P500.00 na parking fee e ok na ok lang. :)Unless gusto mong magbayad ng P500.00 na parking fee e ok na ok lang. 🙂
It looks so inviting! But yes, sorry po, no parking talaga dito. :)It looks so inviting! But yes, sorry po, no parking talaga dito. 🙂

no parking 5On this side e di pwede mag park and smoke. So dalawa ang violation mo kung nag illegal parking ka sabay sindi ng yosi. Look for a spot na walang NO SMOKING kung yosing yosi ka na. Or better yet don’t smoke dahil masama yan sa baga and of course para isa lang violation mo.

Is there a solution to this then?  Should it be additional parking spaces?

The most practical solution to this is –  minimizing the use of our vehicles.  Easier said than done right?  But we can do it one step at a time.  And to start with this, I encourage everyone to start walking and enjoy the city’s embracing breeze.

To help promote our city as THE CITY OF WALKING PEOPLE, here are my top 5 favorite spots where you can start training yourself to get used to walking around the city:

1) Brent Road

You will never miss this sign. Malapit lang siya sa 50's Diner. If you get lost naman, just look for this sign. lol.You will never miss this sign. Malapit lang siya sa Pink Sisters. If you get lost naman, just look for this sign. lol.
Very safe to walk here early in the morning because wala masyadong vehicles. During night time, wag tumambay masyado dito kasi medyo madilim and a lot of teenagers tinatakas sasakyan ng mga magulang nila para tumambay dito at mag-inuman. Not cool so calling on our Policemen to keep this safe at night. Pero nice mag-walk talaga dito. Very safe to walk here early in the morning because wala masyadong vehicles.

Plus in the afternoon, may isaw dito na 5 pesos lang. You might also want to try that. Look for kuya in front of that green gate na malapit sa may Pink Sisters. Pag may lalaki kang nakitang nakawahak ng pamaypay kahit na tag-lamig, that only means there is isaw on Brent Road.Plus in the afternoon, may isaw dito na 5 pesos lang.

Kunyari umiiwas si kuya sa camera o, pero hagip pa din. 🙂 (update: Kuya is no longer there, si ate na so look for ate).

Let us go back to loving our city once again because there is no other place like Baguio.  I may not have experienced the old Baguio that our predecessors first fell in love with but I am of the view that there is so much to preserve than develop.


HOW TO PREPARE BINALAYOK: PANGAKO SA’YO INSPIRED, GAYUMA RECIPE.

If you have been watching Pangako Sa’yo remake featuring the characters of Amor Powers and Claudia Salameda, you might be wondering what is “binalayok” and how it is being cooked.  I have the same question so I did my own research for me to be able to share to you how this binalayok is prepared.

Jodi Santa Maria portraying the character of Amor who made binalayok famous.

This is how binalayok looks like as captured from our television.
This is how binalayok looks like as captured from our television.  Parang Big Mac lang ang itsura from this point of view.

Based on my research, here are the things that you need to have to be able to come up with this mouth watering delicacy.

Ingredients:

1) 2 plates made out of clay, 1 big and 1 small.

SInce we don't have a clay pot, a chinaware will do.  Make sure lang that the chinaware will fit in your oven.

2.  A COCONUT LAMP

IMG_0760
This will add to the warmth of the room as you prepare your binalayok. Remember, dapat 27 degrees ang temperature ng room while you are cooking this, otherwise hindi ma-aachieve ang taste na nakakabaliw.
Turn the lamp on to achieve the desired temperature and for proper lighting effects.  Moreover, it will also set a peaceful ambiance while you prepare the binalayok.  Preparing a binalayok is not just being done to fill hungry stomachs.  According to history, this is also made to calm ones soul.
Dramatically turn the lamp on to achieve the desired temperature and for proper lighting effects. Moreover, it will also set a peaceful ambiance while you prepare the binalayok. Preparing a binalayok is not just being done to fill hungry stomachs. According to history, this is also made to calm ones soul.
If you are already sure that your soul is calm then you can continue preparing the other ingredients.  Let's move to the third ingredient.
If you look like this and you are already sure that your soul is calm then you can continue preparing the other ingredients. Let’s move to the third ingredient.

3) BIGAS

Kailangang piling piling butil ng bigas ang gamitin sa pagawa ng binalayok.  HIndi pwede ang dinurado, jasmine or burdagol.  Look for a scented one na galing Japan so that you will achieve the stickiness required.
Kailangang piling piling butil ng bigas ang gamitin sa pagawa ng binalayok. HIndi pwede ang dinurado, jasmine or burdagol. Look for a scented one na galing Japan so that you will achieve the stickiness required.  Pick the best 100 grains, no more no less.

4) MARTILYO

Martilyo sana pero kung wala kayo nun pwede narin ang batong panghilod.  Just make sure na wala kayong residue ng libag diyan para walang added unnecessary saltiness sa inyong finished product.
Martilyo sana pero kung wala kayo nun pwede narin ang batong panghilod. Just make sure na wala kayong residue ng libag diyan para walang added unnecessary saltiness sa inyong finished product.

5) YELLOW BANANA

IMG_0792
Preferred ang yellow na saging dahil kung itim na ito ay malamang bulok na siya so choose something fresh. Don’t use kambal na saging dahil magiging iba ang lasa nito. Dapat ung walang kakambal sa uma.

6) TURMERIC POWDER or also known as rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family.

IMG_0793
According to wikipedia, this is a native in southwest India, and needs temperatures between 20 and 30 °C and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. This specific ingredient will add spice to the binalayok. Use only 1 pinch of the turmeric powder.  Please only look for the turmeric that grew in soutwest india, in case from southeast india ang turmeric na gamit mo, medyo iba ang lasa.

7) Hazelnuts

Hazel nuts will add to the peanuty aroma of the delicacy.  Choose only the skinless hazel nuts.
Accroding din to wikipedia Hazelnut is the nut of the hazel and therefore includes any of the nuts deriving from species of the genus Corylus, especially the nuts of the species Corylus avellana. It is also known as cobnut or filbert nut according to species. Grabe naman, siyempre nut siya ng hazel diba kasi hazelnut nga. Anyways, Hazelnuts will add to the amazing aroma of the delicacy. Choose only the skinless hazelnuts.  Do not use peanuts because peanuts is not a nut of a hazel so the taste may vary.

8) COCOA SOLIDS OR POWDER

Be sure that the cocoa powder that you will use is extracted from a wild cacao.
Wiki said Cocoa solids are a mixture of many substances remaining after cocoa butter is extracted from cacao beans. When sold as an end product, it may also be called cocoa powder, cocoa, and cacao. Ahhh. What if sold siya as beginning product? Will it be called any different?

After preparing all the necessary ingredients:

Happily mix all the ingredients together. With a smile, to add glow to your personality while doing it.
IMG_0775
Pagtaklubin ang maliit at malaking chinawares.
IMG_0811
Pagtaklubin ang maliit at malaking chinawares. (aerial view)
IMG_0819
Ilagay ito sa loob ng oven.  Siguraduhing sa loob ito ng oven ilagay at siguraduhing may oven kayo bago niyo simulan ang paggawa ng binalayok baka kasi marealize niyo in the end na wala pala kayong oven so sayang lang ang preparation niyo ng mga ingredients.
IMG_0821
Wait for 5 short minutes.
IMG_0824
Carefully bring it out from the oven. Use pot holders because this one is really really hot.

Before you can enjoy the hot and sticky binalayok, you need to use a hammer to break the clay plate.

IMG_0516

In our case e batong panghilod.

IMG_0832

Mahal ang chinaware so I won’t be breaking it, I changed my mind. I will just dramatically remove the top clay plate and let’s see what we have here:

IMG_0838
Close your eyes.
IMG_0842
Viola!
IMG_0846
OMG, yummy and delightful to the eyes.  The crunchiness of the banana gave it a different twist.  The cocoa on rice reminded me of my childhood when I used to eat rice with Milo.  This is a hit to my palate!  This is life changing. Now I understand why Eduardo fell in love with Amor.  Now I know.

Try the binalayok recipe and have someone who doesn’t love you love you back.  It’s actually a gayuma recipe!  Share the love, share this recipe.

Have a great day!

Disclaimer:  Using other ingredients might change the taste of your binalayok.

BOARDER NA NAG-JOGGING, DI NA NAKABALIK.

PUBLIC SERVICE:

PIC COURTESY OF www.adventure-journal.com

Dear Kuya D,

Nagpaparenta po ako ng boarding house, madami po sa kanila na kung hindi na makabayad ay umaalis ng madaling araw.  Itong huli po nahuli ko na palabas mga alas tres po ng madaling araw, sabi po niya na magjo-jogging lang siya.  Pero di ko po maintindihan kung bakit kailangan niyang dalhin ang kanyang TV at mga maleta sa pagjo-jogging.  Tatlong araw na po, hanggang ngayon e di pa po siya bumabalik mula sa kanyang pag-jojogging.  Ano po ba ang pwede kong ikaso sa kanya?

Sagot:

Kaso agad agad? Malay mo naman baka athletic lang siya at natagalan lang siya sa pagjo-jogging. Pero kung di na talaga bumalik ay pwede kang mag-file ng estafa laban sa mga athletic na boarders na ganyan.

Ayon sa batas, ang sino man na kumuha ng serbisyo na may kaugnayan sa pagkain, merienda or accommodation sa hotel, inn, restaurant, boarding house, lodging house, or apartment house nang hindi nagbabayad at may intensyon na manloko ay pwedeng makulong dahil sa kasong Swindling o Estafa under Article 315, paragraph (e) ng Revised Penal Code.

Tip:

  • Agad agad itong i-pa blotter at hanapin ang kanilang bagong address.  Kung walang address, bale wala rin lang dahil hindi nila matatanggap ang ano mang demanda na ifa-file mo;
  • Para sa mga nag-papa-upa, kilatisin ng mabuti ang mga boarders bago magpa-renta, marami na ang fly by night ngayon;
  • Para sa mga umuupa, umupa lang kasi ng afford at rumaket ng todo para may pambayad ng upa.

 

Note:  Ang legal opinion na ito ay base lang sa katanungan sa taas at maaring magbago kung may karagdagang kwento.

BAGUIO EVENT: ASSOCIATE JUSTICE MARVIC M.V.F. LEONEN VISITS BAGUIO CITY JUSTICE HALL AND HOW I DEALT WITH THE LIMELIGHT

April 15, 2015 – It was supposed to be an ordinary busy day at the Baguio City Justice Hall and as part of my routine, I have to go up and down the stairways of the “bulwagan”, greet colleagues, attend to clients, shake hands, throw a quick smile and wave here and there.

As a model (in its showbiz sense) Public Attorney, I see to it that I play the part very very well. From my court hearing, I was about to get some records from the office when suddenly, yes, it was very abrupt, I saw someone familiar. It was my good friend (disclaimer: he knows that he is good, but he doesn’t know that I am his friend) Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Marvic Mario Victor F. Leonen – in the flesh. Thus, my normal schedule went haywire! (To our valued taxpayers, I assure you that no Public Attorney duties were neglected during this time)

selfie with justice
Justice was busy talking to my other friends so we first decided to have a group selfie which he unintentionally photobombed. Kainis.

People in Baguio love “Justice Marvic”, as I fondly call him (as if), because just like me, he grew up here in the City of Pines. In fact, he graduated valedictorian from Saint Louis University – Boy’s High School. What makes me prouder is that he is the youngest to hold the Associate Justice position since Manuel V. Moran in 1938. I think I already said enough about my friend.  Let me just share to you some of the pictures taken during Justice Marvic’s surprise visit to me (I was surprised, really surprised) at Baguio City Justice Hall. To prove that we really are friends and that I am rubbing elbows with Justice Mavic, Here is a pic. FIRST PIC WITH JUSTICE Justice Mavic, however noticed that there was a space between us so he requested for another shot.  He asked if we could also do jump shot but I reminded him that we are in the justice hall.  Here is the second pic:

SECOND PIC WITH JUSTICE
This one is close to perfect because the gap between us has been bridged (parang ngipin lang?). I was wanting to rub elbows with him but the shoulders will do. Caption: Atty. Dexter Duclan Diwas with Associate Justice Marvic Mario Victor F. Leonen, friends – for life.

After our pictures were taken, the who’s who of the Baguio City Justice Hall gathered around us:

Clifford Chan, Lawyer-in-the-making Ms. Marnelli A. Bejar.

If you observe the pic above, parang may balak si Atty. Linda na i-crop ang kanyang picture at kakaiba ang posing niya.  Si Ms. Marnelli naman, kahit hindi mo ipagsiksikan ang sarili mo diyan e hagip ka parin ng camera so okay din kung nagrelax ka, tignan mo kami, mukhang alta. After the picture taking, I sensed that I achieved an instant celebrity status. People from different walks of life started to request a photo with me and forgot about Justice Marvic. Here are the photos:

While waiting for me, my official photographer took a photo of Judge Glenda T. Ortiz-Soriano, SLU School of Law Dean Atty. Jason Barlis, and Judge Jeanylene T. Isip-Fukai. With their smiles, it shows how excited they are for my arrival.

CONTROVERSIAL MILK TEA: KILLED 2, WHAT HAPPENED?

Recently, two people died in Manila from allegedly drinking contaminated milk tea drink. News spread like wildfire and people were alarmed because once in their life, well, they had a sip of that popular drink.

DOH released its findings and found no toxic substance from the milk tea sample which they gathered from the milk tea establishment.  What could have gone wrong?  Well, let us just wait for further news on this. In the meantime, here are some of the netizens thoughts on the issue:

1. CONSPIRACY THEORY NI KUYA:

conspiracy theory
I think the investigators should find this person. Baka mas mapadali ang imbestigasyon.

2.  PAMUKSA SA MGA ADDICT.

idea to kill drug addicts milk tea
Pwedeng pamuksa sa mga addict ang substance na nalagay sa milk tea. At least di lang sila maha-high, heaven na agad ang bagsak nila. Kung doon nga. hehe

3.  MAS MABUTING MAG-LASING KESA MAG MILK TEA? lasenggo milk tea 4. BAN MILK TEA? BAKET? ban milk tea? di niya business 5. MILK TEA + MILK TEA = FORMALIN?

mr google comment research milk tea
Itanong niyo nalang kay kuya kim!

6.  PAINUMIN NG MILK TEA ANG MGA BINAY? bigyan milk tea si nancy binay milk tea inom 7.  KASALANAN NI PNOY?

kasalanan ni PNOY ang milk tea
Ang lalim ng hugot ha. Pati ba naman load mo ate kasalanan ni PNOY? wahehe

Anyways, here are my life realizations on this matter:

1)  Sales on Milk Tea drink will be at its lowest.  Kahit mag buy one take one pa siguro sila. Unless may buy one take one din na ataul? (So morbid)

2) Pag may kaaway ka at inabutan ka ng Milk Tea.  Alam mo na.

3)  Huwag paghaluhin ang Milk at Tea.  Nakakamatay.

4)  If it does not smell good.  Don’t dare drink it. Kahit amoy ariel pa yan dahil 7.50 nalang ang ariel baka yan ang ginamit na sangkap.

5) Pag bumula ang bibig, malamang uminom ng Milk Tea, nagmumug ng ariel, or marami lang talagang excess na laway.

Kidding aside, paalala lang po na mag-ingat sa pag-bili ng pagkain sa kung saan saan para maiwasan ang accidente or food poisoning.  Have a great day!

WHAT TO DO IF YOU RECEIVED A SUBPOENA? (PHILIPPINE SETTING)

Subscribe in our Youtube Channel too!

Dear Kuya D,

Ako po si Stephanie Paa, Nakatanggap po ako ng subpoena na may kaugnayan sa kasong estafa.  First time ko po kasi, ano po ang gagawin ko? Nagpapanic na po ako!! (I recevied a subpoena that has  something to do with estafa.  This is my first time, what should I do?  I am in panic!!)

Sagot: 

Based on your question, may balak ka pa bang mag-second time?  Una, siguraduhin mo muna na pangalan mo nga ang nasa subpoena at baka sa kapitbahay mo lang pala yan.  Pero kung pangalan mo nga e huwag nang magpatumpik tumpik pa at sundin ang mga sumusunod na payo:

1)   Don’t panic: Andyan na yan so harapin mo nalang.  Once you receive a subpoena, you are actually being directed to answer the complaint within ten (10) days from receipt thereof so focus at huwag magmukmuk sa kwarto, otherwise, warrant of arrest ang susunod na kakatok sayo;

2)   Don’t procrastinate: Since you are given only ten (10) days, you have to immediately go to a legit lawyer-batchmate, lawyer-neighbor, lawyer-friend, lawyer-suitor, retained lawyer or any kind of lawyer whom you think can help you.  Warning lang, never go to a lawyer-lawyeran or a person who gives advise based on the many cases that he faced as an accused.  Ang daming clients who only approached a lawyer on the last minute dahil inuna nila ang pagtatanong sa kanilang mga kaibigan na nagkaroon din ng kaso noon.  Kulang nalang e sa bolang crystal sila mag-consult.

3)   Follow the advise of your trusted lawyer.  Kapag pumunta ka na sa abogado, he will usually advise you whether it is sound to submit a counter-affidavit or just wait for the case to be elevated in court para doon nalang sagutin.  Case to case basis yan.  Please take note na hindi porket sinabi ng abogado mo na huwag na mag-submit ng counter–affidavit e tinatamad ang abogado, or in the case of private lawyers, hindi porket sinabi nilang mag-submit ng counter –affidavit e mukhang legal fees na sila.  Sabi ko nga, lumapit kayo sa abogado na dapat wala kayong trust issues dahil hindi healthy na pinagdududahan niyo ang isa’t isa.


Kasambahay, entitled ba sa 13th Month pay?

4)   Wait and pray.  After submitting your counter-affidavit or after deciding not to submit one, wait mo nalang yung resolution ng prosecutor kung dismissed ba yung na-file sayo or naka-hanap ng probable cause kaya i-aakyat siya sa korte.  Kapag naakyat na siya sa korte, dun nalang kayo magpakitaan ng ebidensiya.

5)   Don’t expect your lawyer to do magic.  For many, they hire or go to a lawyer expecting that the lawyer will give them 100% assurance na panalo sila sa kaso.  It does not work that way.  Lawyers and judges only rely on the evidence at hand.  Pero kung madilim ang gilagid mo at gumawa ka ng kung ano anong ebidensiya para lang malusutan ang kaso mo e bahala na kayo ng abogado mo sa buhay niyo because both of you are opening yourselves to criminal liability.

The point is, never ever ignore a subpoena. Instead, immediately visit a private law office or the Public Attorneys Office nearest to you if you are qualified for their services.

PARA SA MGA MAHILIG TAKBUHAN ANG BILL SA RESTAURANT. MAG-ISIP KA MUNA.

This legal opinion is based solely on the question that you asked.  The legal remedies may vary if there are additional facts.

Note:  This is a 3 year-old post, this blog is no longer answering legal questions due to the lawyer’s heavy workload and to avoid conflict of interest in cases where the inquiry is coming from a non-indigent individual.

LIFE REALIZATIONS FROM THE YAYA MEAL SCANDAL

Since I do not belong to the alta sociedad, I am not really familiar with Balesin Island Club. I only heard about it when Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista got married and I was not invited.

I love travelling and sleeping in luxurious hotels (when sponsored) but I will have to be frank that I would probably have to spend my life savings before I could possibly visit this exclusive club. (I didn’t check the rates yet actually, but who knows? Baka afford ko pala, change topic please.)

After reading the latest scoop involving the famous island, my longing to spend time in that resort died down (as if). According to the earlier write ups, they have this meal that they call “yaya meal” in Balesin, so I got curious and did my own web investigation on this brewing-to-be-national-issue. My inquiry on the matter led me to Maggie Wilson-Consunji’s facebook account: maggie wilson Here are her posts that started it all:

what started it.
Parang ayokong tumabi kay Connor. Baka pagkamalan akong driver niya and they’ll probably shove the driver’s meal to my throat. Here in Baguio City, when you visit OMAIKAN RESTAURANT (This is free advertisement by the way), they have what you call CONQUEROR’S MEAL, dito nalang kayo kumain Maggie, with your yaya.

After her posts, as usual, comments flooded her page, she later on posted this clarification:

maggie cleared the issue
Oh, si nanay naman pala ang may gusto ng yaya’s meal. Kahit naman siguro kung ako si nanay e pag nakita ko na mas mura yung yaya’s meal e yun din ang oorderin ko. Pero I’m sure baka masarap kasi yung meal na yun kaya same order din si nanay. Pero ang good thing here is hindi binigay yung yaya’s meal sa nanay ni Maggie, kasi kapag nalaman niya in the long run na strictly pang yaya pala yun tapos binigay sa kanya ng walang tanong tanong e baka mas magkaroon pa ng malaking issue. Anyways, kidding aside, you are right Maggie. Very wrong to have named the meal Yaya’s meal. Why not call it “budget meal” instead? Haay, Alta Sociedad these days.

Ano nga ba ang itsura ng scandalous yaya meal na yan?  Here is a pic:

yaya-meal
Oh, ano naman pala siya. Hmmm, medyo di ako naka-react sa kung ano siya. Pork or chicken adobo daw according to http://manila.coconuts.co/2015/04/04/yaya-meal-real. (Pic courtesy of http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Famous-Philippine-Chicken-Adobo)

Medyo nagising ang aking ulirat sa mga pangyayaring ito.  If in Balesin, their chicken and pork adobo is called “yaya meal”.  Here are some of my precious life realizations:

1)  Since my breakfast is most of the time hotdogs and eggs or just plain bread, I am probably eating a “TAONG GRASA MEAL”.  Ganun ba ang gustong ipahiwatig ng pangyayaring ito?

2)  If by any chance, I become a member of Balesin Island Club, I would immediately be banned dahil I will be ordering yaya meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner or probably not because they won’t notice.

3)  My friends would probably hate me if i treat them to Balesin and say “waiter, pa-order nga ng limang yaya meals for me and my friends please, with extra rice”.

4)  A lot of Filipinos will die to have a yaya meal at least once a week.

5)  Para sa mga alta sociedad, bilog ang mundo, darating ang panahon na luluhod ang mga tala at kakain din kayo ng YAYA MEALS na yan, bwahahaha!

6)  Sa tingin ko lang, dapat ang pagiging alta ay through and through. I mean if you go visit Balesin, I hope you order the same food for your helpers.  Otherwise, baka naman di niyo talaga afford ang pagiging alta.

To end this, I am proud to say that tonight, my wife cooked me a yaya meal.  It was good.  It was really good and I will probably eat yaya meal again tomorrow.

I’m sure ikaw din, baka yaya meal din kinain mo kanina. hehe.

9 LESSONS AFTER INA RAYMUNDO’S KILI-KILI WENT VIRAL.

Because it was a loooong day at work.  I was looking forward to reaching home to chat with my wife, play with our baby and sip a cup of chocolate drink while reading some interesting news on the web.

You wouldn’t believe what I found.  Ina Raymundo’s “kili-kili” went trending.  Just like the tweet below, I don’t know if I will be happy with it or should feel depressed because of the kind of news that we have.

current events

I always want to learn lessons from what I read so I decided to investigate on what caused this life changing news.

So this…

kili kili comment - dahilan 5
Ina Raymundo posted a picture of her with armpit exposure and these two netizens gave it an unsolicited rating. Di naman ata sumali sa talent show ang kanyang kili-kili para i-judge ito. hehe.

Since Ina Raymundo obviously still has fans, they all came to her rescue which generated these comments where I lifted 9 life realizations:

1) Hindi nakikita sa kili-kili ang busilak na kalooban.

kilikiling basehan ng pagkatao, kalooban- 4
Kung hindi sa kili-kili, pwede kayang makita ito sa gilagid?

2.  Walang paki-alaman ng kili-kili.

totoong tao kili kili
Mind your own business. Kung hindi mo kili-kili, dapat hindi mo ito pinipintasan. Ang ibig sabihin ng fan na ito, maitim man daw o hindi, no matter what e idol parin niya si Ina. Pang loyalty award din siya.

3.  Ang kili-kiling bigay ni Lord.

kili kiling bigay ni lord 1

4.  Kung morena ka at maputi ang kili-kili mo, malamang an-an yan.

an an na kili kili
Oo nga naman, medyo ok mag-analyze ito. So ang mga morena, normal lang na maitim ang kili-kili. Otherwise, an-an na yan. Yung isa naman kung maka-advertise ng ariel. Pero oo nga, 7.50 na ang ariel ngayon. That is also worth the news.

5.  Aanhin mo ang mapuputing kili-kili kung wala ka namang makain.

walang makain 2
Kung well travelled si Ina Raymundo, malamang pati ang kanyang kili-kili ay well travelled din. Kaya?

6.  Huwag punahin ang kili-kili ng iba, nakamamatay.

buhay pa kaya? kili kili 3
Masyadong violente mag-isip ito. Patayan agad? Pwede bang pag-usapan muna kung ano ang gagawin sa kili kili na yan?

7.  May koneksyon ang kulay ng iyong kili-kili sa iyong pagbubuntis.

pagbubuntis kili kili final
So ibig ba sabihin, kung wala kang pambili ng pregnancy test kit, e tignan mo nalang kung nangingitim ang kili-kili ng asawa mo? Kung nangingitim na ito – POSITIVE!

8.  Pwedeng kumita sa maiitim na kili-kili.

pampaputi business
Bilib ako sa taong ito. Very entrepreneurial. Ito ang isa sa mga taong magiging milyonaryo kung ang mundo ay dumilim dahil sa maiitim na kili-kili.

9.  Malaki ang posibilidad na binayaran ni PNOY si Ina Raymundo para i-divert ang issue mula sa Mamasapano.

pinoy s fault

Ayan po, I hope that you learned from the above realizations.  If you want to add more, leave a comment.

This article is an offshoot of my stressful day.  Have a blast!

LEGAL NA REMEDYO KUNG INUTUSAN KA NI MISTER NA I-TEXT ANG KANYANG KABIT.

Ano ang gagawin mo kung inutusan ka ng asawa mo na itext ang kanyang kalaguyo?

Dear Kuya D,

twowives
Kunyari lang si Milagring si Kaye Abad.

Isa po akong mapagmahal na asawa na itago nalang natin sa pangalang Milagring. Vendor po ako dito sa Baguio City Market. Thirty years na po kaming kasal ng aking mister at nabiyayaan po kami ng tatlong anak. Masipag po ang aking asawa at hindi naman nagkukulang sa suporta. Ang problema lang po ay nambabae siya ng lantaran. May time pa po na pinapatext po niya sa akin ang kanyang kalaguyo at sabihin ko daw sa kanya kung saan daw sila magkikita. Ako naman si tanga at tinetext ko naman po. Nasasaktan po ako, ayoko po sanang maghiwalay kami pero nasasaktan po talaga ako sa kanyang ginagawa.

snake1
Exhibit A, ito po ang gamit ni Milagring na cellphone para itext ang kalaguyo ng kanyang asawa. Medyo mas naging iritable siya dahil kasalukuyan siyang naglalaro ng SNAKE sa mga panahong iyon.

Ano po ba ang pwede kong gawin?

Dear Milagring,

First, gaya ng sinabi mo, di ko ilalahad ang iyong tunay na pangalan kaya itinago kita sa pangalang Milagring. Sana ay nagustuhan mo ang iyong screen name sakaling madiscover ka at maging artista.

Anyways, salamat sa iyong makabagbag damdamin na kwento. Ngayon, ano ba ang pwede mong gawin?

Let me dissect the facts. Ayon sa iyong liham, ito ang aking mga naintindihan:

  • Walang problema sa suporta dahil hindi naman nagkukulang ang iyong asawa, so di rin kita papayuhan na mag file ng petition for support.
  • Inuutusan ka ng iyong asawa na itext ang kanyang kalaguyo at sabihin dito kung saan sila magkikita. – Aba ate, hindi ko alam kung saan ka humugot ng lakas para makapagsend ng message. Kung hindi mo kayang suwayin ang iyong asawa sa bagay na ito pwede mo namang sabihin na “hon wala akong load”.
  • Gusto mo lang magbago ang iyong asawa at ayaw mong maghiwalay kayo pero nasasaktan ka sa kanyang ginagawa. – If that is the case, maganda yan kasi may chance pa naman na magbago ang isang tao. Mag-usap usap kayong magpapamilya at ayusin ang situation.

In case na hindi naman na talaga siya magbago eto ang mga legal actions na pwede mong gawin:

  • Pwede kang magfile ng Annulment. Ilahad mo sa iyong abogado ang kwento ng inyong naudlot na pagmamahalan para makita niya kung anong grounds ang gagamitin niya at kung meron man. Paalala lang Milagring (hindi mo totoong pangalan) na ang pambabae ay hindi grounds upang ma-annul ang inyong marriage. Explore mo lang ng abogado mo kasi di kumpleto yung kwento mo para masabi ko kung may grounds ka ba o wala. Gagawin mo lang naman ito kung gusto mo pang mag-re-marry or if you have other plans in life.

Ito ang matitindi –

  • Mag-file ng case under Violence Against Women and their Children or R.A. 9262.

Ayon sa batas:

            Sec. 5. Acts of Violence Against Women and Their Children. – The crime of violence against women and their children is committed through any of the following acts:

            xxx

            (h) Engaging in purposeful, knowing, or reckless conduct, personally or through another, that alarms or causes substantial emotional or psychological distress to the woman or her child. xxx

            xxx

            (i) Causing mental or emotional anguish, public ridicule or humiliation to the woman or her child, including but not limited to, repeated verbal and emotional abuse, xxx

Dun palang sa pag-utos niya sa iyo na pagtext sa kanyang kalaguyo, I assume na you are emotionally battered. If you are, then you should go through psychological evaluation para maipakita ito at para may katibayan ka na ikaw nga ay nagsa-suffer ng emotional or psychological distress. Kung wala kasi iyan, pwede ka naman pa rin mag-file kaya lang baka madismiss lang sa prosecutor’s office.

Kung sakaling naging successful ang iyong pagfile sa prosecutor’s office at umakyat ito sa korte, maaring makulong and iyong asawa ng 6 years and 1 day to 12 years kung napatunayang guilty siya. Kaya huwag din padalos dalos, baka mamaya e pwede naman pala kayong mag-usap lang muna. Marami kasing mga cases na ganito na nagfa-file ang mga babae tapos nakakatawa kasi sila rin lang magbabayad ng piyansa para makalabas ang kanilang asawa, kaya usap muna.

  • Mag-file ng Concubinage case:

Sino ang liable dito? Ang iyong asawa at ang kanyang kalaguyo na tinetext mo.

Ano ang mga dapat mong patunayan para maparusahan ang iyong asawa sa kasong ito?

  1. Na kasal kayo ng iyong asawa;
  2. At ginawa niya ang mga sumusunod na bagay:
  • Ibinahay niya ang kanyang kalaguyo sa inyong pamamahay;
  • Nakipagtalik siya sa isang ma-iskandalong sitwasyon sa isang babae na hindi niya asawa (malamang hindi ikaw yun);
  • Ibinahay niya ang isang babae at nakatira sila doon na parang mag-asawa.

3. Para sa babae, dapat alam niya na may asawa ang iyong asawa.

Medyo mahirap lang mapatunayan ang concubinage. Pero kung nag-uumapaw naman ang iyong ebidensiya ay okay lang.

Kung ako lang ang tatanungin, balik parin tayo sa dapat mag-usap muna kayo kesa magkaso-kaso dahil probationable lang ang kasong concubinage. Ano ang ibig sabihin ng probationable? Sa mga kasong 6 years below ang kulong, pwede silang mag-apply for probation at di sila makukulong. Di sila makukulong pero magrereport report lang sila sa probation office to attend activities for the purpose of reformation. So baka mainis ka lang kung makalaya rin lang yung asawa mo. Sa babae naman e destierro lang o pagsasabihan lang siyang magpakalayo-layo at pagbabawalang lumapit sa inyo. At ang piyansa? Mga 10k na pwedeng ma-reduce pa to 5k.

So ayan, Milagring, sana ay medyo naliwanagan ka after kong maibigay ang iyong mga choices. If I were you, try niyo muna mag-usap at huwag ka nang pumayag na utusan kang itext mo ang kanyang kalaguyo. Huwag mong ipapahalata na naka-unli text ka dahil for sure baka hindi ka makatanggi.

Note: Ang payong legal na ito ay base lang sa kwentong naibigay ni Milagring at maaring magbago kung may karagdagang kwento.
