Comments Off on China orders recall of US Baby Milk / Formula

Another brand of milk is being ordered for recall after testing positive for the clostridium botolinum bacteria.   Two batches of Abbott’s baby formula “risked having been contaminated by clostridium botulinum”, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) issued in a statement.

Clostridium botulinum is a bacteria that can cause botulism, an infection that can lead to paralysis and death.

This product testing was done after last week’s milk recall.  So far the recalls included Fonterra,  Dumex and Karicare.   There were also issued recalls in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and New Zealand.

Comments Off on Chito Miranda and Neri Naig have more sex videos?

After the initial wave of shock on the sex video of Parokya ni Edgar lead singer, Chito Miranda and his girlfriend Neri Naig,  the rumor mills are churning again.  It is said that there were more than one sex videos that were uploaded from the “stolen” hard drive.  However, Chito Miranda is planning to file cases against those who uploaded the video.  A lot of celebrities also gave their opinions on the scandal like Lea Salonga, Ogie Diaz, Boy Abunda, etc.  Even twitter is abuzz with #respectchitomiranda.  I don’t want to sound insensitive but its just funny when there were some comments like “Chito who?”, “are they celebrities?”, etc.

Comments Off on #Remembercoryaquino on ABS-CBNnews’ Facebook account goes viral

Last July 31, 2013, ABSCBNnews.com Facebook page posted the question:

“Cory Aquino. Democracy icon. How do you ‪#‎RememberCoryAquino‬ ?”

A lot of haters posted their comments blaming the ex-president for the misery of the Philippines.  As of today, August 6, there were 1, 219 comments.  Its hard to read through all the comments but the majority of sentiments lean towards negative.  Personally, these comments just mirror the crab mentality we Filipinos have and this is the reason why as a nation we cannot prosper.  It is not the fault of one leader just as it is not the glory of one leader alone that will build or destroy a nation.  It is the collective effort of us citizens that will bring us a better Philippines.

Ilo-ilo: First Singaporean Film to win in 66th Cannes Film Festival

Comments Off on Ilo-ilo: First Singaporean Film to win in 66th Cannes Film Festival

A very heartwarming and touching story lies behind the making of “Ilo-ilo”,  the first Singaporean film to ever win the Camera D’Or Award in the Cannes Film Festival.  The movie was inspired by the director, Anthony Chen’s,  personal experience with his childhood maid, Teresa (Terry).  After winning the award, Chen went to the Philippines to be reunited with  his inspiration.   Terry, or Teresita Sajonia was found back in Iloilo, her hometown.  It was a shock to him when he found out that  Terry had been living in an old shack and had no income or financial savings whatsoever.  Her plight echoes the plight of similar OFWs who send all the hard earned income back to their relatives  in Philippines  and forget to set aside some for themselves.   Some of them even get “conned” to send money on the pretense of investing the funds in a business, a parcel of land or some investments.
