Scene: Bohol Gov. Edgar Chatto clarified that he never issued a specific statement about having a list of narco-politicians in the province during the Provincial Peace and Order Council meeting last Aug. 25.Â Â â€œAnd it is not only the responsibility of the intelligence community. In fact the people from intelligence generate their information through the support of the community,â€ Chatto said. He also reminded the media to faithfully do their work by giving the public the right information. â€œIf there is doubt, ask the source because the source is just there. If our purpose is indeed honest to goodness service in public and not to mislead and not put malice in statement and the truth can always be found for the source of information,â€ he said. He also appealed to all Boholanos to provide information that would lead to the arrest and identification of drug and criminal personalities in the province.
The social media was filled with â€œBuwan ng Wikaâ€ photos of our friendsâ€™ children donning their favorite barong tagalog and baroâ€™t saya. Indeed, â€œang hindi magmahal sa sariling wika ay mas mabaho pa kaysa malansang isda.â€
Since, we are at it, I want to share some of our favorite Tagalog #hugot lines which I culled from the Internet.Â Here are some of them:
1â€”Mamatay-matay ka sa selos, hindi naman pala kayo. Ano ba â€˜yunÂ !
2â€”Sa LOVE, walang bingi; walang bulag; walang pipiâ€¦pero TANGA marami.
3â€”Kapag sumama ka sa matatalino, tatalino ka rin. Kapag sumama ka sa adik, magiging adik ka rin. Try mong sumama sa akin, baka sakaling maging akin ka rin.
4â€”Kapag sinabihan ka nang: â€œAng ganda mo!â€, mag-thank you ka na lang. Minsan ka naÂ nga lang sabihan, mag-iinarte ka pa.
5â€”Ang mabuting lalaki, â€œstick to oneâ€, hindi 3 in 1.
6â€”Kapag mahal mo, ipaglaban mo. Pero kung pinagmumukha ka nang tanga, iwan mo na.
7â€”Aanhin mo ang palasyo kung walang internet connection dito. Mabuti pang mag-stay sa bahay kubo, sa Wi-Fi zone nakapuwesto.
8â€”Aanhin mo ang peraâ€™t mansiyon, kung nagmumura ang iyong bilbil at puson.
9â€”Aanhin pa ang tiwala, kung ang hinala ay laging tumatama?
10â€”Kaysa mabuwisit, love your â€œhatersâ€. Sila ang ebidensiya na hindi ka pa nga artista, may mga fans ka na.
11â€”Labs, para kang damit na suot ko ngayon. Simple lang pero bagay sa akin.
12â€”Lagi na lang ninyong sinisisi ang mga taong â€œpaasaâ€. Hindi kaya, kasalanan mo dahil â€œassumingâ€ ka lang?
Real names of Boholâ€™s â€˜whoâ€™s whoâ€™
Do you think Rich Asuncion would have been one of the countryâ€™s young actress had she used her real name Richell Pacaldo Angalot? Would Maxi been a real designer had he packaged himself as Maximiel Tallo? Â We all know the late Yoyoy Villame was an icon, but thereâ€™s a good chance he might not had the sameÂ level of success had he kept his real name, Roman Tesorio Villame.
Some people (stars, celebrities, whoâ€™s who, semi-celebrities) change their names because they donâ€™t like them or they are cultivating a unique persona with the help of a stage name. Others because it doesnâ€™t sound like starsâ€™ names or their real names are hard to memorize and remember. Â While some completely wipe the slate clean (weâ€™re looking at you Inday Rufing!), others simply replace a first or last name.
Read on to discover their real names.
