Noynoy and Binay to Rule the Philippines


I’m just glad that Noynoy and Binay won the presidential and the vice presidential race.  I’ve posted last year that I want those two guys to rule our country for the next six years and I’m happy that they were the chosen ones. Although it was a landslide for Noynoy, the former senator and the only son of a former president and a hero on the Philippines, winning by more than 5 million votes compared to Estrada, it cannot be said to Binay’s victory. It was a close  fight between Mar Roxas and Jojo Binay for the vice presidential race, with a little of 700, 000 votes to get the slot, Binay was proclaimed. But there was a question about the 2.6 million votes for the vice president that were considered as null votes. I think those votes should be reexamined because there is a possibility that Mar can win through those votes. But those votes that were considered null might be because  of the wrong shading on the ballot or the PCOS machine cannot read them. Maybe some of the voters did not follow the ways on how to properly shade those circles on the ballot. It was a waste of time for casting a vote that cannot be counted. Maybe next time the voters should make it a point to follow the instructions.

Now that we have our new President, we wish that things will change. Can we call Noynoy the Father of the Philippines for he is the president now when he is not really a family man? I don’t know if it is an advantage for a country to be ruled by a bachelor for he is a bachelor at 50 —indeed he is now the most eligible bachelor in the land to covet for the ladies out there!

President Noynoy, we know that you can’t make miracles but we wish to see the Philippines doing fine and please follow your slogan–No to Corruption! Make the Philippines like Singapore or Japan maybe… Or for the NOYBI tandem make the whole Philippines like Makati City. Hah! Wishful thinking on my part but I wish it just the same. Better Philippines for the next 6 years please…

Saudi Arabia is so rich that their King Abdullah has ordered a SR1 Million (that is about PhP13, 000, 000–that’s a lot of money 😀 )  aid to the families of every individual who died in the recent flooding in Saudi Arabia. As of this writing, there are 106 people who are confirmed dead and that they are still expecting the numbers to increase.

Although money can’t compensate to the lives that were taken away, but it will be a big help to the grieving family. We didn’t expect that this flooding will happen to a very rich nation where we thought that their drainage and sewerage  systems are of high quality as compared to the Philippines which experienced also the most notable floods in its history.

So what is happening right now to the victims of Ondoy in the Philippines? Is the government still thinking of them? Or are they too busy thinking and implementing their strategies for their political plans? Will there be a time that the Philippine government will be able to  give a big aid like what Saudi is about to give?

Maybe these recent turn of events–these calamities and environmental problems are caused by the global warming.  One day, we might be living underwater… Let’s do our share…help and you will be helped.
