My little nipa hut

Sen. Jinggoy Estrada is grilling former policeman Mosqueda. The Senate investigation isn’t really going anywhere, but I must say, in showing the photo of a fairly large and elaborate vacation home, it’s funny to see Mosqueda refer to it, basically, as his little nipa hut. Messy as the hearings are, one thing that irritates me is the offensive line of questioning exemplified by Estrada. There’s no reason to treat people that way, particularly since senators should remember the public pays their salaries.

    Here is one person who had been accused of jueteng investigating another of the same crime. Sadly… only in the Philippines.

    I belive you are absolutely right here Mr. Quezon. Those who hold high positions in our government should always remember that they are foremostly public servants and never royalties. I believe politicians should write their code of ethics, just like judges and lawyers for surely, most of them lack candor and foresight.

    If that’s a “little nipa hut,” I also want one for myself, too.

    Geeez, I shudder to think how Mosqueda will define “big.”

    “Little” could be relative you know. Anything that uses nipa and looks like a hut, no matter how grand, is still nipa hut (hehe). And what passes for a decent bungalow for someone like me could even be smaller than a rich man’s closet. The joys of being wealthy… Am I abnormal I do not feel envy?

    mlq yan ang reason why ang church ang dapat baguhin kasi they failed to instill morality sa mga taong ito. MOST government officials acts like GOD kung tratuhin nila ang taong dapat nilang pinagsisilbihan.

    Dapat ang church ang magisip isip bakit walang moralidad at respeto sa tao ang karamihan sa mga politiko… baka walang nagtuturo nang moral values nang panahon nila? or iba ang pinagaaksayahan nang panahon nang mga church.

    MLQ3,

    Its really irritating to hear and watch these Senate hearing or as i prefer to call it a Circus show, its also irritating whenever Senator Estrada does the questioning…may personal touch palagi, akala mo naman napaka linis. They should remain in showbiz instead.

    ibang klase makahirit si Jinggoy kanina. Para bang hindi rin sya nagkaron ng jueteng issue nung panahon ng tatay nya.

    Minsan mas maganda pa manood ng animal planet kesa panoorin ang mga politicians natin na kanya-kanyang takipan sa mga kani-kanilang issues.

    hay buhay nga naman sa Pilipinas. Nagmumukha ng Chinovela.

    🙁

    well, the blasted earth to the arrogant jinggoy then…

    go engel!

    Hay naku si Jinggoy talaga! wala na yatang ginawang tama! sabi nga ng nanay ko ang magnanakaw daw ay galit sa kapwa magnanakaw! No wonder all their calls for rallies seem to be failures if you have the likes of Jinggoy and his brother JV at the helm. I dont think people take them seriously anyway. They better quit while they are at it.

    Napapansin nyo ba pag ang tao maraming pera, susunod na dyan gusto naman nila ng POWER para mapangalagaan ang pera nila o para madagdagan ang kayamanan nila.

    Minsan problema dito sa atin, morality. Napapansin ko na pinagmamalaki ng isang nanay sa kanyang anak na Nanalo sya sa sugal at masarap ang kakainin nila for the day.

    So sumisiksik sa isip ng bata, “magsugal na lang din ako paglaki ko para masarap ang pagkain ng mga anak ko!”

    Which is veryyyyyyyyyyyyy wrong.

    Ngayon kasi napansin ko hindi na importante kung ang pera mo ay sa mabuti nanggaling o sa masama, basta may pera ka, titingalain ka ng tao. You’ll be next to God sa paningin nila.

    The real question in hand, kaya pa ba lutasin ito?

    Francis, Morality ba kamo? Asa pa tayo sa simbahan. E mismo sila wala nun e.

    Wala na akong tiwala sa simbahan. 7 years na akong hindi pumapasok ng simbahan.

    Kasi naman ang simbahan, ultimo mong sariling organization nila, hindi maayos. Tapos ang lakas pa makialam sa politics. Naman!

    Sa loob mismo ng simbahan may mga corrupt. Like for instance, nakakita na ba kayo ng ALTAR worth 1.3M? ALTAR LANG YAN with matching abubot sa gilid.

    May naging pari kami dito na pinatay ng “lover” nya. Sinindihan sya ng “fafa” nya.

    Ang mga sakristan, after ng misa… kanya kanyang pwesto, hithit ng yosi at buti sana kung yosi lang ang hinihithit.

    well go to my place and you’ll see. Morality doesn’t exist here in my place.

    Wala na ring impact ang simbahan ngayon. If you ask me. Mahina na ang kanilang impluwensya. Kasi nga sila mismo, may mga tinatago din. Saka matatalino na rin ang mga tao, hindi na basta basta mapapasunod sa gusto nila.

    I grew up on an exclusive school na nagtuturo sa akin noon na Galangin ang mga taong simbahan. Pero di ko talaga kayang sumunod sa isang organization na kitang kita ang kabulukan ng sistema.

    Ayusin muna nila ang sariling bakod, bago mangialam ng iba.

    Now, kung wala na tayong maasahan sa simbahan at sa goverment I think we better start teaching the word MORALITY inside our homes.

    That’s the only way I know.
