Leonor (Che Ramos): Aalis nako dito. Romeo (Ricky Davao): Ano ba namang ka baliwan yan? Leonor: Seryoso ako Romeo. Sorry talaga pero hanggang dito na lang talaga kaya ko. Nandiyan naman si Tess para alagaan kayo. Romeo: Wag mo naman ako insultohin. Alam mong tapat ako sayo. Leonor: Wala kang ginawa Romeo. Hindi lang kita mahal. Lagi ko na lang kayo iniisip. Ngayon ako naman.

The storyline of MARIQUINA is supposed to be about the great shoemaker Romeo Geuvara played by actor/director Ricky Davao. But it’s the women who surround him who exhibit true grit and strength of character. Even the cameo appearance was from Iron Butterfly herself, Imelda Marcos. Her reputation as a real life advocate of the Marikina shoe industry was utilized well in the story.

The cast of MARIQUINA is replete with strong female characters. Che Ramos-Cosio plays the outwardly quiet and submissive young wife Leonor. Che has appeared in a great number of Cinemalaya and Cinema One productions. If her performance were any less sympathetic it would be difficult to understand why Leonor needed to find her own way in life. But because of her subtlety and skill viewers instead felt for her.

Director Milo Sogueco explained, “She needed to be honest to herself. In my movie there are no bad people and good people. Everyone is flawed just like in real life. It just takes a bit of understanding on the predicament of the person her situation. You mentioned Che (Leonor), her character she was very strong to do that. She was being strong for herself. If I’m going to stay here I’m going to die. So I choose to survive. I wana grow so that’s what she did.”

Mylene Dizon as the grown up version of Imelda Guevara displayed the jaded sometimes-distant figure trying to piece the whys in her life. The more introspective scenes are difficult to portray, especially since there’s not much dialogue. It’s Mylene’s maturity as an actress that allowed her to express sadness or the lack of it without words.

Dizon as revealed by Sogueco, originally wanted the part of Tess that went to Bing Pimentel. Tess is the shrewd business partner of Romeo Guevara that literally massages his ego. There’s so much more to her than the slutty, seductive and materialistic woman she seems to be. In spite of all that she becomes a positive influence in the teen Imelda Guevara’s life played by Barbie Forteza.

Barbie Forteza was herself a revelation. Director Milo had to overcome his prejudice of soaps during her auditions; she’s a popular star of GMA Network. “She had an audition in CCP and swept me off my feet. That time I met her I said this is the right choice. I ate all my words, swallowed my pride and said she’s the one. And it worked out so well because she’s a fantastic actress.”

Ricky Davao, was able to tap into his vast experience in theater and film both as actor and director. There had to be one male lead such as Davao where all these strong female characters could revolve around. Ricky was so effective it made the production go so smoothly, Sogueco said, “Ricky Davao is my one take, two take guy. Just like Mylene Dizon hey guys this is going to be a one take two take thing. You better give it your all. I won’t make you waste your tears or your anger or pain. I’m not gonna make you crazy. Let’s do this fast. You know what? They were able to deliver. If I have a perfect ensemble its not because of me its because they’re perfect for my movie.”

The story is credited to long time producer and writer Gay Ace Domingo, multi awarded screenwriter Henry Burgos (who often works with Brillante Mendoza and Bing Lao) and Milo Sogueco. The screenplay however is credited to Jerrold Tarrog who also happens to be in charge of Music/Soundtrack in this film. They successfully synthesized the history of the difficulties of the local shoe industry as told through the plight of one family.

When I first heard of mega musical KUNG PAANO AKO NAGING LEADING LADY from playwright/illustrator Carlo Vergara, sex & sexual imagery was the last thing on anyone’s mind. Dalanghita productions’ KUNG PAANO AKO NAGING LEADING LADY will run in PETA from May 9 to June 7, 2015.

Menchu Lauchengco Yulo is one of the most beloved theater actresses but also among the senior members of the cast, was very much concerned with her mid riff revealing costume.

By show time however, her abs were ripped. She credited the extra aerobic exercises before each rehearsal and play date. She also made sure not to eat a meal immediately before each performance.

What really convinced me that Leading Lady had a sexier look was one particular photo that I took of Red Concepcion as Itak-Atak. I’m sure the blocking was purely coincidental along with my lower angle from which I was shooting. I last saw Red in Resort’s World Manila’s production of Priscilla Queen of The Desert as the Gayest of Gays: Felicia. Here he is now playing a macho super villain Itak Atak.

The photo I took which had a PURELY accidental angle, seemed like his mouth was on Kim Molina’s (Viva) generous bosom. I’m sure it was unintentional for ALL parties. But was sexy nevertheless. Itak Atak’s pose of holding his Itak directly at crotch level was not accidental at all though.

Of course everyone’s raving about Markki Stroem (Leading Man) and Bituin Escalante’s (Mely) intimate scenes as well. Theater and music fans who have been admiring Bito’s vocals and acting are so happy with her leading role for this musical. She’s equally gratified having a young hunk in Markki as her leading man.

In the final group shot I caught Bito teasing co star Nar Cabico that she has hot scenes with Markki. The role also allowed Markki to show off his abs and muscled torso.

If costumes don’t reveal skin they’re skin tight, body-hugging leather. KUNG PAANO AKO NAGING LEADING LADY displays the penchant and skill of director Chris Martinez for humor. The wildly creative imagination of Set and Costume designer Tuxqs Rutaquio successfully brought to life characters created by Carlo Vergara.

There’s no easier way to convince an audience than a celebrity endorsement. No less than Imelda Marcos herself, possibly the world’s leading shoe connoisseur, gave her endorsement of fictional character Romeo Guevara. The role played by Ricky Davao is supposed to be one of the most respected shoemakers in Marikina. The former first Lady made a cameo appearance in the Marikina Shoe Museum some of which features her vast collection.

The movie MARIQUINA starring Mylene Dizon, Ricky Davao and Cinemalaya Best Supporting actress Barbie Forteza is the opening film for the ASIA ON SCREEN 2015 film fest.

Casting the former first lady was not difficult for director Milo Sogueco. She has a true soft spot for shoes and Marikina, “You mention shoes, you mention Marikina, which is very close to her, when they were in power. If you talk to the old sapateros they would readily admit they used to gift her with shoes. That one is a fact. If you talk to the original old, sapateros, talagang binibigay nila sa Malacañang ang mga sapatos. It doesn’t amount to all her shoes, meron ding imported, meron mga local na galing sa Marikina.”

The shoes made in Marikina have long been held in high regard. Director Milo’s research proved this started way back. His main character’s last name was also based on true historical figures. “There came a time when the Spanish era then, the family of Kapitan Moy, the first settlers of Marikina were shoe makers. They belong to that family to that clan. Guevara ang apelyido ng isa sa pamilya na gumagawa sa Marikina.”

Asked why he made the film Sogueco explained, “It was more of a personal thing. I just wanted to make a movie I could connect to. Years and years before I was trying to reconcile a personal affliction. I was having an identity crisis of how it is being a Filipino. Bakit may mali sa Pilipino? I was asking myself during those years. Maybe we have a problem with our own identity? Maybe we don’t know who we really are, our past and we haven’t reconciled with it also. That’s where it came from.”

The journey of the main character is a metaphor of the whole country, “In our movie, our heroine Imelda Guevara is played by Mylene Dizon and Barbie Forteza. Their character is like a lost soul trying to find itself. Yon yung philosophy ko behind it. Parang Pinoy rin (Like Filipinos) we need to find ourselves first before we can move on and be a better country.”

The Marikina Shoe Museum houses 700 pairs from Imelda Marcos personal collection. They also have shoes from celebrities, political figures on display. They even have what they call a Running Heel, a motorcycle made into a shape of a stiletto. Imelda admits to having over a thousand instead of the much-publicized 5,000 pairs. She’s also quoted as saying, “They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but thank God, all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes.”

“My head is for Mayweather but my corazon (points to his heart) is with Pacquiao.” That line is not from a crazed fan or a Filipino but from Boxing Hall of Fame inductee Oscar Dela Hoya. HBO is known for producing the famous 24/7 series before each mega fight following the drama of rival training camps. This time they decided to forego that and went with ‘The Legends Speak’ interviewing the people who know both Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao best: the five men who have stepped into the ring with both of them. All of them have more than made their mark in the sport of boxing: Oscar Dela Hoya was interviewed together with Shane Mosley and individually: Juan Manuel Marquez, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto. Additional panel interviews were made with George Foreman, Lennox Lewis and Bernard Hopkins in the same feature.

Pundits can analyze all they want but no one has a more credible take than members of the elite fraternity of fighters, especially those who stepped into the ring with Pacquiao and Mayweather. Not surprisingly George Foreman was the only one to predict a Pacquiao win. Foreman as a fighter had that similar powerful punches aggressively going for KOs like Pacquiao, which he believed would overpower Mayweather.

They called it all 4 previous opponents chose Mayweather (Cotto abstained) including the most accurate description of Dela Hoya above. That’s essentially what happened. The consensus was if Mayweather’s style was imposed it would be boring and a more calculated fight. Floyd’s style of backpedalling and throwing the occasional counterpunch doesn’t inspire excitement. He throws punches not to hurt his opponent but more to outscore them.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was screaming “I knew I won! I knew I won!” during the unanimous decision announcement.

IF Pacquiao’s style was imposed, if he were to win, there would have to be at least one knockdown. This usually happens from a barrage of punches that end up destroying and finishing his opponents.

Quality NOT Quantity

Mayweather stole the first round with his jabs but even then he was already clinching when cornered. In boxing fighters clinch or hang on to their opponents for several reasons. Foremost as a defensive move to immediately stop the other fighter from throwing punches. Its also used to rest, it allows both fighters to stop giving and taking punches AND even moving around.

In spite of the elite level of fitness, Mayweather was actually clinching throughout starting from the opening round. So that’s also an indication that Pacquiao’s punches were doing damage that early. I gave 2nd and 3rd rounds to Manny by virtue of the harder/ heavier punches landed not the quantity AND Floyd’s clinching.

4th & 6th rounds to me were very obviously in favor of Pacquiao. Floyd actually turtled up meaning he was covering his head & body with gloves to block MP’s punches. Floyd turtled up at least twice in each round. This would mean that MP threw at least 5-6 punch combinations (even more). Assuming they were blocked on the head at least 2 or 3 of them landed flush in the body, which SHOULD be counted as points.

In my eyes, they alternated in taking rounds. Mayweather would score from clear counters. Sometimes Mayweather would score a rare lead left hook. Pacquiao would take rounds from stronger punches and left right hook combinations. As evidence of the greater damage caused Mayweather’s lip was bleeding by the 7th round. Pacquiao’s face was clear of any swelling or cuts even after the 12th round.

In spite of all the criticisms, I feel Manny did what he was supposed to. He used his jab, landed to the body and thrown a lot of combos. He was also able to use his footwork and dart in and out, although Floyd was sometimes able to negate this with head movement and CLINCHING. There were at least 4 times in separate rounds when Floyd was visibly hurt, staggered by punches.

At no time did any of Floyd’s punches visibly affect Manny. There’s no doubt Floyd landed more punches. There’s also no doubt that Pacquiao’s fewer punches caused MORE damage. That’s why on my own scorecard I actually had it in favor of Manny 7 rounds to 5: 115-113. Shane Mosley scored the fight the same way I did in favor of Pacquiao. Evander Holyfield, another heavyweight great echoed my scoring from a PDI article.

The official judges, however, saw it differently all in favor of Mayweather. Glenn Feldman and Burt Clements gave Pacquiao 4 rounds 116-112 while Dave Moretti had a very unrealistic 118-110. Even father and coach Floyd Mayweather Sr. thought the fight was closer, “I told Floyd he needed to do a lot more because we know some judges are crooks.” in an article from PDI front page.

Michael Buffer introduced Pacquiao for the weigh ins while Jimmy Lennon Jr introduced Mayweather.

The judging / scorecards is not really all that surprising. Boxing is a sport where someone like Mayweather could backpedal for 12 rounds, throw a few counter punches, hardly damaging his opponents and STILL win the fight.

The argument that he landed more punches is there. But clearly Mayweather came out more damaged from Pacquiao’s fewer punches landed. It’s also clear that Pacquiao threw more punches and was far more aggressive.

Boxing’s Demise: MMA’s Rise

Dana White was very much into boxing way before he took over the UFC, currently the most successful MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) organization. By instituting and modifying the judging system and rules he was able to think of ways that rectified what’s wrong with boxing, which turns off fans. Mayweather is a perfect example of what’s wrong with the sport. His style of not engaging his opponent, running away more than attacking doesn’t excite fans. What was supposed to be the Fight of the Century became a cat and mouse game.

Some changes are clearly seen; the smaller gloves make for harder punches. Fight analysts have attributed the higher KO rates in the UFC to this. Fewer rounds (5 mins long) compress the action and increases pace. 3 rounds are typical with 5 for main cards and championship fights.

More important than these are the modifications to the scoring and judging system. ‘Octagon control’ is taken into account. One of the ways of defining Octagon control is ‘Effective aggressiveness means moving forward and landing a legal strike’. The rules also state: ‘Fighting area control is judged by determining who is dictating the pace, location and position of the bout.’ Essentially, White and the UFC created a system where backpedaling or running away from your opponent is discouraged.

The effect is there are far more exciting fights in the UFC where fighters face each other and engage. There are more knockouts; there are also submissions, which is also the equivalent of stoppages…all within 15 minutes.

The Fight of the Century between Pacquiao and Mayweather while earning record numbers in pay per view, ticket sales, disappointed fight fans. How exciting is it to watch a fighter use his footwork, bob and weave to elude punches? When Floyd did manage to land punches he hardly hurt MP. The supreme irony is that Floyd won the fight, preserved his unblemished record and yet people hate him now more than ever.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was screaming “I knew I won! I knew I won!” during the unanimous decision announcement.

They never really said who they were dozens of men with M16 rifles; they could have been CAFGU, the military or even the rebels. To the family of Manuel (Bon Andrew Lentejas) barely 5 years old all they knew was that they should be scared when they descended on their isolated nipa hut in the mountains. The children huddled together with their mother Dionisia (Alessandra De Rossi) as the strange man (Alvin Anson) approached her. He asked for food and politely wondered if she had seen other armed men in the area. Although their own resources were scarce, Dionisia readily gave them even the fish she had been cooking for her own brood.

Everyone knows about the poverty in Manny Pacquiao’s childhood. But here in this latest biopic directed by Paul Soriano. We see that violence was something that surrounded him even as a child. Living in the remote areas of Southern Cotabato, the Pacquiao family was no stranger to armed conflict raging around them. They could have been one of the many people, victimized or lost their lives in the many battles between armed groups and the Philippine military (not unlike what happened with SAF 44 in Mamasapano).

Extreme poverty, violence these are just a few of the things People’s champ Manny Pacquiao had to overcome as a child. The film’s story highlights the many unknown people that have aided, molded him into who he is today. The difference between KID KULAFU and other biopics that have already been produced is that it never shirked from the difficult and painful past of Manny. It actually sheds light in even more adversities that he and his family faced.

Credit should be given to writer director Paul Soriano and screenwriter Froi Medina. They sought out the many details and experiences that shaped not just the Greatest Filipino fighter but possibly the Greatest Boxer of all time. These are the seminal experiences that built his body, strength and most of all his character.

That’s how KID KULAFU succeeds it brings us to that time and place when his life was hard. This is his humble roots and daily problems that millions of his countrymen experience to this day. That’s why he’s become a strong symbol of hard work, love of family, the Philippines and even faith in God.

Struggling Parents: Alessandra De Rossi & Alex Medina

Rosalio (Alex Medina) for example has always been accused of being an absentee father to Manny and his brood in many articles. In this film however we see that he tried to be a responsible and even caring parent. Rosalio’s meager wage was never enough to provide for his family, which was a constant source of conflict.

Alessandra De Rossi’s performance as the very outspoken Dionisa was nothing less than powerful to the point of accurate realism. To call Aling Dionisia a nag would be an understatement. But considering the state they were in and her own efforts in providing for the family, you can hardly blame her for being that way too.

Due to their youth and long history of realistic portrayals in Cinemalaya you could see why Alex Medina and Alessandra were cast as Manny’s parents. Medina gave Rosalio an all too human face, especially when he could no longer bear the daily tirades and left the family. It wasn’t a justification for him leaving nor was it an attack on Dionisia but rather recognition of the dire situation they were in.

One thing that Dionisia passed on to Manny in spite of all the poverty and ignorance was the gift of FAITH. She wanted him to be a priest, but even as a young boy helping feed his brood he knew that it was next to impossible. The Lord had other grand plans for him. So no matter the adversity Manny knew that the power of prayer was something he could rely on to overcome them.

Buboy Villar’s Steely Determination

Buboy Villar is the perfect age for Manny in KID KULAFU. He was young enough to be boyish and old enough to throw and take punches. He was on the cusp of manhood trying to survive in a very harsh and unforgiving world. Buboy was also in a boxing film in Cinemalaya that featured kids made to fight sometimes to the death by an underground syndicate. It was entitled: CHILDREN’S SHOW directed by Roderick Cabrido and written by Ralston Jover. More important than the physical preparation for that role, is the mental state of desperation that pushes someone to get into boxing or underground fighting.

Buboy was actually a famous child star; he has a strong semblance to the Manny Pacquiao of that age, with pugilists’ nose and somewhat thick lips. His frame and body size is almost exact of the gaunt Pacquiao from old black and white photos at age 16. In spite of the not so intimidating physical features it’s the steely determination in the eyes that Buboy was able to replicate. The film rested on Buboy’s young shoulders and he more than lived up to expectations.

Boxing Coaches: Cesar Montano and Jake Macapagal

Sometimes there are people in your life who change you, who set you onto a path. Usually you don’t even know it while it’s happening, you only realize it looking back. Tio Sardo (Cesar Montano) is one of those people for Manny. He is Dionisia’s cousin and for Filipinos, at least one relative or extended family always have a strong influential role. Since Dionisia’s unofficial separation, she had to seek the help of her cousin in providing for her 4 growing kids: Isidra (Iris Sanchez), Manuel (Buboy Villar), Bobby (Niño Robert Bayungan) & Ruel (Patrick Carrera). Buboy Villar’s younger brother Christian Dave played the toddler aged Ruel.

Tio Sardo was obsessed with boxing. Manny’s first glimpse of the sport was through an old Betamax tape of an aging Mike Tyson about to be KO’d by Buster Douglas. Sardo’s passion was infectious and needless to say was fire in the eyes of an adolescent Manuel. Jake Macapagal’s role Dizon on the other hand was the very first real boxing coach whose son Abner (Jomari Angeles) became Manny’s teammate and close friend.

Given the limitations of running time we know that not all details could be included. Congressman Lito Atienza however is an undeniable figure and influencer in Manny’s life that was omitted. His youth boxing program as Manila mayor was one that saved him from the streets. Manny openly considers Atienza as a second father. Perhaps it could be rectified with the sequel.

J.A.R.V.I.S (JUST A RATHER VERY INTELLIGENT SYSTEM): You have accessed the secret files of TONY STARK. Hulkbuster is the specially designed armor to combat The HULK. Their most anticipated battle can be seen on AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON with a premiere night in Shang Cineplex, Shang Rila Plaza Mall, sponsored by CNN Philippines this April 22, 2015.

AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON: what’s new

From the trailer we see that the new suit has enhanced speed, movement and agility. In spite of 11 feet in height and the heaviest add on to the ironman suit, it moves quickly in order to anticipate the HULK’s attacks. Flight was also improved to counter the HULK’s leaping abilities.

While the breastplate armor itself is rated for impact resistance of 175 tons, just as in the Mark 42, components also break apart and reassemble themselves. This is to augment whatever damage the HULK is able to dish out. The left arm was severely damaged and was still able to function. After being stabbed by a whole stoplight pole, the arm twisted itself and was able to punch the Hulk that was behind the Hulkbuster armor.

Fresh components from a nearby drone flew in to replace the damaged ones. The special drone floats above the fight scene far enough to be safe from the attack and yet near enough to send parts immediately. They had to do so in a matter of seconds as the HULK comes charging in for another attack.

After getting stabbed by traffic light, arm detaches and waits for components to reattach themselves. Catch Avengers Age of Ultron at Newport Cinemas in Resort’s World, EASTWOOD City Mall, Lucky China Town Mall and Shang Rila Plaza mall.

This time the HULK is coming in with a ‘superman punch’, and Hulkbuster receives it with a punch of his own. Although his fist is reinforced with shock absorbers, the strength and power of the HULK may still defeat him. The shockwave from a hulk clap is able to cause explosions and enemies come flying off. What more from two fists colliding? Would it be the force of a nuclear explosive? The trailer goes black after that.

Hulkbuster Armor (Modular Add-on)

http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Iron_Man’s_armor

First Appearance: Iron Man (vol. 1) #304 (May 1994)

The Hulkbuster armor is a heavy-duty exo-frame (an add-on to the Mk. XI Modular Armor) designed for maximum strength amplification at the cost of reduced versatility and mobility. As its name suggests, it was specifically designed for hand-to-hand combat with the rampaging Hulk. The armor was rated with a lift (press) capacity of 170 tons. During its maiden run, the armor enabled Stark to hold his own in sustained physical combat with the Hulk

History

http://marvel.wikia.com/Iron_Man_Armor_Model_14

It was used when Hulk confronted Iron Man (Tony Stark) over the production of gamma bombs when part of Stane International. The two met at a production plant. Stark acknowledged that Stane had conducted many illegal and unethical operations, but explained that this news was nothing more than a smear campaign. The two were able to settle the dispute and dismantle the plant.

Capabilities

The armor’s magno-hydraulic pseudo-musculature provided greatly enhanced strength rated at 175 tons. Sensors were adapted to focus on detecting gamma radiation. It had impact-resistant carbon composite plating and an anchoring system. As it was an add-on, the systems of the Modular Armor were still functional.

From http://ironmanarmory.com/hulkbusterarmor.html

“The biggest Stark armor built to date, this is suit is not an actual model, but an auxillary module for the Modular Armor, Model XII, Mark I. An exo-armor, built of impact-resistant carbon composites with a magno-hydraulic pseudomusclature rated at 175 tons, this suit fits on top of the Modular Armor–it is an extension that Iron Man, in full armor, climbs into and plugs in.”

J.A.R.V.I.S (JUST A RATHER VERY INTELLIGENT SYSTEM): Unbeknownst to the world after their first battle Tony Stark was a changed man. There was always a lingering fear of having to battle the green monster yet again hence the continued improvements on Hulkbuster. As he re designed it, he would have nightmares screaming from the top of his lungs in the middle of the night, “ME SMASH HULKBUSTER!!”

Mei Magsino’s Voice of Truth

Written by

Jude Bautista

Seeing the headline on PDI woke me up in a terrible way, the broadsheet was one of the first things I saw seconds after getting up from bed. Former PDI correspondent Mei Magsino was shot dead less than 50 meters away from her apartment Monday noon April 13, 2015 in Bauan, Batangas. The photo with it was a lovely face of a woman who still had a lot to do and express taken from her family and loved ones way too soon at the age of 40.

The story noted that she had several investigative stories one of which was critical of Governor Sanchez in 2005. The Governor later on died of a heart attack in 2010. No one can really confirm who the perpetrators are as she had created a lot of enemies from her stories that often revealed the corruption and misdeeds of the powerful. The list is long of those who had motive and opportunity to have Magsino killed.

The article also mentioned she had moved on from being a journalist to a private herbal, health and wellness business with her partner. Although the writer in her, the crusader in her to fight for her beloved town of Bauan was a fire that could not be extinguished.

This is where social media gives someone like Mei even more power. Even though she’s not necessarily Kim Kardashian or Kanye or Bieber she had something to say and she said it well. Her commentary, sometimes just a few lines long would resonate with her town mates who saw and experienced the same things she wrote about. Her words resonated with people for the simple reason they were true.

As a writer she also saw the importance of giving others of like mind the chance to express themselves as well. That’s why instead of creating just her own personal facebook or twitter account she opted to create a public group. This allows more users to air out their grievances in a free and open manner. If her concern was to write propaganda or disparage personalities then she could have had her own personal fb fan page where only she has control.

And so the facebook public groups she created: Barako Batangas and Taga Bauan Ka Kung… have earned thousands of likes and views. More importantly ordinary citizens and townsfolk started to write and post their own articulate and valid thoughts on these pages. The most significant posts are from Igme Hernandez and Chito Mandanas who writes in a very eloquent form of Tagalog that is indicative of their Batangas heritage. There’s no wonder that the page has become synonymous with the voice of Bauan residents. Different media are also shared by users such as music videos: ELEKSYON NA NAMAN by Freddie Aguilar. There’s also Pinoy rap video BAYANG DI MAGILIW by Hambog ng Sagpro which spoke about the same anger and frustration the residents of Bauan feel about their leaders: “PROUD AKONG PINOY pero kinahihiya ko Gobyerno ko”

A very cursory perusal of these pages and a ‘rival’ fb page will give anyone especially police authorities a good idea of who may have motive to assassinate Mei. A rival page called Keep Calm and Love Bauan was created after the success of the two pages above as a ‘response’. But because their concept of writing or communication is confined to poorly spelled, text shorthand, so the page hardly has any following or ‘likes’. The posts can hardly be considered as legitimate commentary but sound more like rants of an illiterate bent on maligning Mei Magsino personally. The rival page itself is also a very strong clue as to the kind of people that were offended with Mei’s two successful fb public groups.

While none of us could really confirm who her killers are as of yet, what we can do as netizens, especially as Filipinos is to keep her causes alive. We should support people who want to find the truth in allegations of corruption against mayor Ryanh Dolor In Bauan. We should continue to ask the same questions that Mei Magsino was asking and shedding light on.

From Mei Magsino fb page: Sana joke din lang ang pagtakbo nya bilang presidente sa 2016! https://www.facebook.com/mei.magsino?fref=nf

By killing Mei the murderers did not silence her, they shone a light of national attention on what was supposed to be a local problem actually on everything she wrote about.

The causes she fought for in Bauan is a very clear reflection of what’s going on in the whole country: the over pricing of Makati City Hall hospitals and public schools, the acres of accumulated land and mansion of the Binays in Sta Rosa. If we don’t hold all of our leaders accountable NOW what’s going to happen to our country?

This is what she wanted of us all. Don’t just like her pages or comments join the discussion, ask questions. Make your own research, seek justice, think and write truthfully. She had the courage to do so.

Let’s not make Mei Magsino just another statistic in the long line of journalists killed. Let’s hold PNoy accountable not just for THIS killing but also for all murders of journalists during his administration. It’s been 6 long years since the worst massacre of media people in one place: The Maguindanao Massacre. We should ask why this has not been a priority for his administration just like his failure to bring true and real governmental assistance to Yolanda victims in Tacloban.

These are all questions we should think about and ask questions to even after we’ve tried to act and help in our private capacity. This was how Mei Magsino lived her life and this is the best way to honor her.
