Bimby Aquino Doesn’t Care If You Bash Him Online

We've seen too many times how blunt Kris Aquino can be. We've collected some of her infamous clapbacks and brutally honest posts as proof of that. But you know who else has quotable quotes that are worth hearing? Her son, Bimby. We saw a glimpse of Bimby's humor and straightforwardness when he would tease Kris about having a new boyfriendand comment on the harsh words that were said to him. He also wrote a note to Joshua Garcia about being their "adopted" brother. One part read, "I can teach you to be good and respectful to women. [If] you are a good boy, you shall be rewarded in heaven. But if you are a bad boy, you shall burn." Not what you'd expect an 11-year-old would say, and...Keep on reading: Bimby Aquino Doesn’t Care If You Bash Him Online.....»»

7th heaven: LeBron carries Cavaliers past Pacers in Game 7

CLEVELAND --- LeBron James scored 45 points and got some needed help in Game 7 to stay unbeaten in the opening round of the NBA playoffs, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 105-101 win over the Indiana Pacers, who pushed the game's best player to the limit. James improved to 13-0 in the first round and kept Cleveland's strange season alive --- for the time being. It took everything James and the Cavs had to hold off the Pacers, who were swept by Cleveland a year ago and came in confident after a 34-point win in Game 6. The Cavs will open the conference semifinals on Tuesday at top-seeded Toronto. James played 43 minutes, leaving late in the third quarter and heading straight to th...Keep on reading: 7th heaven: LeBron carries Cavaliers past Pacers in Game 7.....»»

Three steps from heaven: Boracay B.C. (before ‘cesspool’)

  The first time Louie Cruz set foot in Boracay, he found it so beautiful that he described the island paradise in Malay, Aklan province, as "three steps away from heaven, almost perfect."   Wading into the water, he recalled seeing colorful tropical fish circling him, "looking very friendly and curious."   This was the early 1970s, when Cruz --- the third of seven children of the late journalist and diplomat J.V. Cruz --- flew in from Germany, where the family was based, for a vacation in Manila.   Invited by the Elizaldes to a five-day stay in their Boracay property, he flew with the group in a private plane that landed on an improvised airs...Keep on reading: Three steps from heaven: Boracay B.C.

La Salle Lady Spikers stay true to form

For the better part of the season, defending champion De La Salle has been utterly unstoppable. But despite racking up seven straight wins with one more game left in their schedule, the Lady Spikers believe they haven't reached their peak form in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament. Kianna Dy said their strong performance late into the season is just about staying true to their real form. "I don't think we're peaking, or we've reached our peak, it's just that every game we just have to play our game," said Dy in Filipino Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

Future prime minister? All is well with GMA, sans braces and all!

Your mantra for the week: "I am God as me and I love It." Last week, Ricky Lo featured well-known personalities talking about "Why I believe there is a God." I did not make the deadline, so this is for Ricky, with my sincere apologies. There was a time I believed in a God that existed outside of myself. I was a most devoted churchgoer, going to Mass and communion every day for seven years, convinced that this was a sure passport to heaven. What I mostly confessed was that I often "played with myself," which, we were told, was a grievous mortal sin that would surely lead to eternal damnation, like murder. Even now, some Philippine senators believe masturbation is a form of genoci...Keep on reading: Future prime minister? All is well with GMA, sans braces and all!.....»»

‘Raisins,’ not ‘Virgins,’ Quran scholars say

  It has been said that Muslim martyrs will be rewarded with 72 virgins in heaven, or paradise. But a growing number of Quran scholars and Islamic theologians have contested its interpretation.   In the CNN special show "Why They Hate Us" in 2016, Canadian author and Quran scholar Irshad Manji said the word "virgin" in the Quran meant "raisin."   "Nowhere in the Quran does it promise 72 virgins, 70 virgins, 48 virgins. ... The Arabic word for 'virgin' has been mistranslated. The original [word] that was used in the Quran was the word for raisin, not virgin. In other words, that martyrs would get raisins in heaven, not virgins," Manji said.   Likew...Keep on reading: ‘Raisins,’ not ‘Virgins,’ Quran scholars say.....»»
