CPP is deceiving the public for denying existence of its front organizations — Roque

It would be the height of deception of the local communist rebel group if it will deny the existence of their front organizations, a Palace official said Tuesday. Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque (OPS / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN) According to Presidential spokesman Harry Roque, the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) has an armed group, the New People’s Army (NPA), as well as a political wing composed of the so-called legal front groups. He argued that these front organizations may not take up arms but still belong to the communist rebel group. Roque made the statement even after clarifying that authorities have been advised against red-tagging personalties without presenting proof. “Lilinawin ko, bagama’t ang sinabi ni Secretary Lorenzana na polisiya natin talaga ay kung walang ebidensiya dapat manahimik at huwag mag-red tagging eh hindi naman po ibig sabihin noon na wala talagang mga organisasyon na talagang kasapi at kabahagi ng CPP-NPA (I’d like to make clear that although (Defense) Secretary (Delfin) Lorenzana mentioned our policy to stay silent and avoid red-tagging personalities without proof, it does not mean that there are no organizations belonging to the CPP-NPA),” Roque said during a televised press briefing.  “Ang CPP-NPA po, talagang mayroon silang revolutionary armed struggle, iyan po iyong NPA at mayroon silang political, kasama sa political ay iyong mga tinawag nilang mga organisasyon na diumano’y legal dahil hindi naman sila humahawak ng baril pero kabahagi pa rin po ng CPP-NPA at hindi po madi-deny iyan. Kaplastikan po ng CPP-NPA kung sasabihin nilang wala silang mga legal fronts na tinatawag. (The CPP-NPA has a revolutionary armed struggle, that’s the NPA and they have a political arm composed of what they call legal organizations because they don’t take up arms but they are still part of the CPP-NPA and that cannot be denied. It will be deceitful for the CPP-NPA if they will say they don’t have so-called legal fronts),” he said. Amnesty International earlier appealed to the Philippine government to halt “its vicious and at times deadly practice of red-tagging” or labeling of groups or persons as communists or terrorists. The group urged the government to address criticisms about its policies instead of allegedly endangering people practicing free speech.“In the prevailing context where red-tagged individuals become the targets of harassment, threats and even killings, courts and pertinent government agencies must take concrete steps to ensure the safety and protection of these individuals,” the group said in its website. The appeal was made as the Senate started an inquiry into the controversial red-tagging activities of some military officials. Last week, the Palace said President Duterte wanted military and police officials to stop labeling personalities as communists without showing evidence. Duterte has spoken through Lorenzana who advised officials to be careful in red-tagging, according to Roque. .....»»

What Korina Sanchez-Roxas wants to teach young girls about money

Popular broadcaster Korina Sanchez-Roxas is successful, sweet and independent – especially when it comes to money. During a media conference for her show “Rated Korina” held in Quezon City recently, Korina revealed that she never asked money from her husband former Senator Mar Roxas II. “Hindi ako humihingi ng pera sa asawa ko. So ang luho ko sa akin lang,” said Korina. “Pero may anak kami so hati kami. Kung gusto niyang abonohan ng buo puwede rin. Hindi na ako umaalma roon. Pero hindi ako humihingi.” Korina said that her being a breadwinner in the family when she was younger taught her how to value money. “Pero inaabutan niya ako pag nag bi-byahe kami. Natuto na rin akong tanggapin iyon pero dati tinatanggihan ko ‘yan. Kasi siguro naging breadwinner ako sa amin, ate kasi ako eh. Hindi ako sanay tumanggap. Ako yung taga-bigay,” she said. When asked if she gives money to her husband, Korina laughed and said: Oo naman. Abonado ako madalas.” Korina said she wanted to teach her daughter Pilar the importance of earning money for herself when she grows up. “I choose that. Ako iyong tumatanggi (sa pagtanggap ng money). Gusto ko ipamana iyan kay Pilar na kailangan ang babae, kumikita. Kailangan kumita ka para hindi ka nadidiktihan. “Okay lang naman iyong collaboration. Iba yung dinidiktahan ka. I can hold myself. I don’t bother him much. Ma-regalo naman siya. Wala na nga akong hinihingi so siyempre may regalo dapat,” said Korina as she smiled. Asked if the gifts she received were expensive, Korina said: “Hindi naman mayasdo. Pinagmamalaki ni Mar ‘yun. Hindi siya maluho. Ang relo pa rin niya ay Timex hanggang ngayon”. Korina said that they do not go out of town that much these days for their bonding moments because they already have children. “Hindi na kami masyado makalarga dahil sa mga bagets. Gusto na nga niya dalhin sa bundok o turuan mag-swimming (ang mga bata) pero ayoko muna hindi puwede. Ako ang masusunod. Pag seven years na yan, ayon sa batas,” the award-winning broadcaster said. Korina Sanchez-Roxas When asked about plans to have more children in the future, Korina said in jest: “Saka na natin pag usapan ‘yan. Working mom ako.” Korina said that she misses her kids – Pepe and Pilar – when she goes taping for several days. “Masakit yung anak mo na hindi mo nahahawakan from afar. Magki-kiss kami may salamin. Araw-araw ako naka Face Time, 2-3 times a day. Ayoko naman makalimutan nila ako. Si Pepe sa garden pa lang sumisigaw na siya ng ‘mama, mama!’ Alam na nila ang mga pangalan ng tao sa bahay. Pati tagaluto sa kusina kilala nila,” she said. “Ilongga ang anak ko! Si Jess, si Jiss. Si Pepe, Pipi! Sabi niya ‘ako man, ako man!’ Gusto ko ituro sa anak ko you have to make the most of your time. You don’t just watch TV the whole day,” she said. Produced by BrightLigt Productions, Korina said that she is excited for her journey on TV5. “Sa show ko ‘Rated Korina,’ walang editorializing. Kung manonood ka, ang mangyayari is mamamangha ka, matutuwa ka. There will be some issues but nothing political. Marami namang gumagawa ng ibang programa nun. Sasawsaw pa ba tayo dun? Four stories every week.” Rated Korina, a news magazine and lifestyle show, will be launched on Saturday, Oct. 24, on TV5, 4-5 p.m. Korina brushed aside competitions with other networks, saying this is not the right time to tear each other down. “If aint broke, why will you fix it? Kami nga iyong ginagaya di ba? The more the merrier. Magkakaibigan naman kami lahat niyan. Kino-congratulate ko pa nga ‘yung iba diyan pag-nananalo. Ang ganda nga ng position ni Sir Albee (Benitez), ‘ zero-network war.’ Now is not the time to tear each other down. The signs of the times, it’s teaching us that there’s something wrong in what we’re doing so ayan! Mag re-boot kayo. Siguro concentrate na lang in doing good,” she said. Korina also denied reports that she will be appointed to an executive position on TV5. “No! Kung gusto ko man humawak ng mga departamento, nuon pa sana ‘yan sa ABS-CBN. Nag-pioneer naman ako diyan di ba? I’m director level pero never ako nagkaroon ng tauhan. Kasi I would like to be on-cam. Maybe later on,” she said. But Korina said that she’s not closing her doors for any opporunities in the news department. “Later on siguro. Hindi naman mawawala iyan. Pag-isipan natin. Nasisiraan na ako ng ulo sa trabaho ko sa ‘Rated: Korina.’ Ako rin ang line producer. Pati ulam ng mga tao, iniisip ko.” Korina also shared some secrets for success in the broadcasting industry. “The glamor part is 10 percent. Ninety percent is hardwork. Kung papasok ka sa news, paano ka aangat? Hard work talaga ‘yan. Noon, doon ako natutulog sa kotse ko sa ABS-CBN. Sa weekend ako parating andun. Inuupuan ko editing ko kahit hindi kailangan. In anything you do, you need to work well. Kahit nag-gigisa ka lang ng sibuyas, you have to do it well. Just do it well at hindi ka mawawalan.”.....»»

BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 5

In case you missed it: BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 1 BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 2 BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 3 BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 4 --- Pingoy Rule: Never lose hope. --- For the second time in two years, Jerie Pingoy had to have surgery done on his left foot. In November 2017, he injured his left foot in the final frame of the last game of the elimination round of the UAAP. In December 2017, the 5-foot-11 guard went to Pampanga to rid his left foot of bone spurs. Fast forward to June 2019 and his left foot was yet to be fully healed. A failed surgery as well as playing through pain worsened the bone spurs that had long been building up in Pingoy's left foot and he had no other choice but to go to famed sports doctor Raul Canlas. "Nung pinatingin namin kay Doc Canlas, sabi niya, bakit daw hindi inoperahan yung mismong may bone spurs," he shared in a phone interview. "Ako, wala naman akong kaalam-alam. Eh tapos na yun, wala na akong magagawa. Alangan namang habulin ko pa yung doktor dati." As the now-25-year-old was no longer with Adamson University, he had to pay for the new surgery out of his own pocket. Fortunately, he had his girlfriend not only to help him raise funds, but also to find a way to decrease the amount. "Yung girlfriend ko, nagwo-work sa Maxicare (a health maintenance organization) so yun, nag-apply kami ng health card. Buti naman, na-approve," he said. With that, Pingoy went under the knife for the second time in two years. And, as it turns out, it was an outpatient operation. "Ang kasama ko lang nun, girlfriend ko. Pasok kami Sunday, labas ng Monday kasi wala naman kaming ipon e. Binayad na namin lahat ng meron kami sa opera," he said. The good news is that at long last, his left foot is all well and good. As he put it, "At least, ngayon, okay na okay na." NOT ALONE That’s just one of the reasons why Pingoy believes he already has his life partner beside him. Talking about girlfriend Dixie Soberano, he said, full of love, "Through all the darkness na nangyari sa akin, she stayed with me. Alam niya kung gaano ka-struggle yung nangyari sa akin, pero nag-stay siya." He then continued, "Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako sa kanya kasi nandito siya, 'di niya ako iniwan. Siya pa nga laging nagpapaalala sa aking magpakundisyon ka, magpapayat ka para sa future natin." Not only that, Soberano was also how Pingoy received the biggest blessings in his life. In one-year-and-three-month-old Kaeden Jared and two-month-old Jaeden Keith, the Cebuano has even more will to go on and prove that his career is far from finished. "Sila yung nagbibigay ng inspirasyon sa akin. Ang practice namin sa CEU, alas sais ng umaga, pero gumigising ako ng alas kwatro kasi iniisip ko, para sa anak ko 'to, para sa kinabukasan nila 'to," he said. He leaves home motivated - and comes home even more motivated as he has a brand new dream to go alongside the one of him playing in the PBA. "Every time umuuwi ako, naiisip kong sana soon, yayaman ako at pag-uwi ko, sasabihan ko mga anak kong, 'Magbihis kayo, kakain tayo sa labas,'" he said. He then continued, "Tapos makikita ko kung gaano sila ka-excited. Talagang nagbago na buhay ko dahil sa kanila." NOT THE END Before COVID-19 shut down anything and everything, Pingoy looked like he was doing all in his power to put his career back on track. Just a month after Karate Kid-CEU took a chance on him, he proved diligent and disciplined in his extra work and trimmed down from 250 lbs. to just 197 lbs. Of course, having a life partner and two children, as well as his parents, relying on him is more than enough fuel to the fire. "Mahirap walang income eh. Nung isang taong nawala ako, as in walang income talaga eh kaya ngayon, kailangang magtulungan kami as a family," he said. Fortunately, the Scorpions have Pingoy's back as he claws and climbs the mountain once more. "Everybody deserves a second chance eh. Sakto kailangan ko rin ng point guard na leader para ma-guide yung mga bata namin," head coach Jeff Napa said. And there remains more than a few who have not lost faith. "If Koko can be given a chance and the confidence, he can still realize the potential that he has," Bo Perasol, the head coach who recruited and then mentored him in Ateneo de Manila University, said. In Napa, team manager Johnny Yap, and all of Karate Kid-CEU, Pingoy has another shot - as long as he keeps at it. "Maganda pa rin naman ang future ng batang yan basta mag-work hard lang siya nang todo at bumalik yung game shape niya. Yung talent at basketball sense kasi, meron na siya e," his new mentor said. FORGET-ME-NOT However, it is yet to be determined when the 2020 PBA D-League Aspirants Cup would resume action - or if it would even resume action. With COVID-19 posing more questions than answers, hope is all that Pingoy has for his career that has seen more starts and stops than rush hour traffic in EDSA. Still, hope is what he has been holding to all throughout - and is the reason he still stands even after having seen half of his collegiate career go to waste because of residency. Back-to-back MVP seasons in the UAAP Jrs. were followed by two years in a row of residency. A rookie year in Ateneo was followed by another season on the sidelines after transferring to Adamson. Two years as a Soaring Falcon were followed by a year out of the grid. Now, Jerie Pingoy, once thought to be special, just wants to have a shot at normal. This, even though what he has been through in his young life is already ripe for the pickings for a TV drama. "Sa lahat ng nangyari, parang gusto ko na ngang magpa-MMK e," he kidded. And who, if ever, would portray him on Maalala Mo Kaya? The answer to that is pretty clear in his eyes. "Si Gerald Anderson. Sakto pareho kaming Bisaya, pareho kaming gwapo." Without a doubt, after all that happened to him, the sense of humor is still there with Jerie Pingoy. Hopefully, the game that once made him a promising prospect is still there too. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 2

In case you missed it: BEST-OF-5 SERIES: The Pingoy Rules Part 1 --- Pingoy Rule: Never look back. --- Along with being a champion and back-to-back MVP in UAAP Jrs., Jerie Pingoy is best known for a league rule that was put in effect after his actions. There's even a possibility that many know Far Eastern University-Diliman's once promising prospect just from having been the poster boy of the so-called "Pingoy Rule." Back in 2012, Pingoy had for himself a title run and a second straight top individual player award in his last year in high school. And so, more than a few were interested in securing the services of the 5-foot-11 point guard. Ultimately, the decision came down to moving on up to FEU's Srs. squad or moving on to Ateneo de Manila University. The latter was what Pingoy decided to be best for him. Not long after, the league instituted a new rule that required two-year residency for student-athletes who transfer from one UAAP high school to another UAAP college. As such, the then-18-year-old was forced to stay on the sidelines for two years. And even then, he already knew how much those two years would mean to his future. Fast forward to now and Pingoy is far removed from being a true blue-chip recruit out of high school or even a talented transferee in college. Now, he is just like any other player hoping for another shot to prove himself. Now, the Cebuano could only rue what could have been. "Unang-una, nasasayangan ako sa years na 'di ako nakapaglaro. Kung nakapaglaro ako ng dalawang taon, mag-iiba yung takbo ng panahon," he said in a phone interview. He then continued, "'Di magiging ganito." CODE RED Momentum is a true thing in sports - much more in basketball where the action goes on and on and on. And coming off a championship and back-to-back MVPs, Pingoy's confidence and capabilities were as high as they have been as he took on a new challenge in Ateneo. Only, he was not eligible to play in the UAAP Seniors just yet. Simply put, Pingoy lost all the momentum he already had after leaving FEU-Diliman. "For sure, mag-iiba talaga yung laro ko kapag nakapag-start ako agad. Once makapaglaro ako right after high school, mas magiging mature ako eh, mas malalaman ko agad yung laro sa college," he shared. He then continued, "Hindi ko natantsa agad sa Ateneo na ganun pala sa college. Nung naglaro na ako, 'di na ako rookie sa age, pero rookie pa rin ako sa laro." Indeed, after putting up per game counts of 21 points to go along with 5.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.1 steals in his championship and MVP season as a Baby Tamaraw, two years later, he averaged 3.5 points and 2.8 assists as a rookie Blue Eagle. For Pingoy's former mentor, it was clear as day that the long layoff, as well as all the talk surrounding his decision, had a negative effect. "May impact sa bata yung nangyari kasi naka-distract lahat yun sa pag-usad ng career niya. Sa tingin ko lang, if he (would have stayed) in FEU, magkakaroon siya ng peace of mind," former FEU-Diliman head coach Mike Oliver answered when asked to look back at one of the most controversial college commitments the country has witnessed. He also added, "Yung nangyari kasi, because naging talk of the town siya, I think nagkaroon ng malaking pressure sa kanyang every time na maglalaro siya, he has to show how good he really is." GOLD IS GOLD Of course, Pingoy was still seeing action - albeit with Ateneo's Team Glory Be on the smaller stage and under the dimmer lights of minor tournaments like the Fr. Martin Cup. Still, that could not compare to the competition of the UAAP - a level of competition that was already at the tip of his fingers in high school and only needed to be grasped in college. "Nahirapan akong mag-adjust kasi for two years, 'di ko naman alam laro ng Team A. Siyempre, iba naman yung nasa Team B kasi iba pa rin yung nandun ka (sa UAAP) at nakakalaro kahit konti lang," he said. Still, years later, Pingoy has no regrets about transferring to Katipunan. As he put it, "Nalungkot lang ako kasi nga sayang, pero 'di ako nagsisisi." And while he did not necessarily tap into his potential, he remains nothing but proud of his time wearing the blue and white - from Team Glory Be to the Blue Eagles. "Proud ako na yung batch namin nina Fonzo Gotladera yung unang Team B na nag-champion. Masayang-masaya ako dun," he shared. He then continued, "At least, nakapabigay ako ng isang championship sa Ateneo - kahit Team B lang." At the same time, Pingoy said he also made it a point then to get to know the Atenean way. "Sa Ateneo, tinuturo maging 'man for others.' Yun talaga ang natutunan ko dun aside from matututong mag-English," he shared with a laugh. He then continued, "Pero ngayong naaalala ko nga, iba talaga sa Ateneo. Magiging wiser ka talaga eh." WHITE LIGHT That wisdom has apparently allowed Pingoy to bear no ill will towards those who disagreed with his decision. From then to now, he remains adamant that he has no problems whatsoever against the ill-fated "Pingoy Rule." "'Di talaga ako nagalit kahit kanino. Iniisip ko lang lagi that time na okay lang yan and everything happens for a reason," he said. He then continued, "Kung ginagawa nila yun, ibig sabihin, ayaw ka nila." Now, the "Pingoy Rule" is no more as Congress had passed the "Student-Athlete Protection Act (SAPA)" which, for one thing, prohibits residency rules on high school graduates transferring to a different school for college. If this were already law before he committed to any college, he wouldn’t have had to undergo residency at all. However, the SAPA was passed in 2015 and by then, Pingoy had already served two years. Meaning, it was a case of too late the hero. While it didn't do him any favors personally, though, Pingoy is nothing but glad to have been part of a much-welcome change. "Deep inside, naramdaman ko rin naman dating napaka-unfair nila, pero ngayon, okay na yun. Unfair sa akin dati, pero masaya ako ngayon kasi yung mga bata, makakapili na ng school na gusto nila talaga," he said. He then continued, "Sobrang masaya ako dun. Sobrang thankful ako dun." That means that now, any recruit, from blue-chippers to solid players, could choose whatever college they want without having to think that they could lose their momentum from high school. Indeed, he could rest assured that anybody as highly recruited as he was would now be free to decide what’s best for them. However, it may very well take some time before we witness anybody like him - because without a doubt, Jerie Pingoy was a man among boys in high school. NEXT ON BEST-OF-5 SERIES: THE PINGOY RULES: "Ateneo gave me an opportunity na matulungan yung family ko. I wasn't thinking of myself lang that time. The opportunity was there e, why not grab it?" --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA 95: Letran s Santiago wants to make a name for himself in basketball

National University almost had a brand new Santiago donning the blue and gold. Only, it wasn't in volleyball, but in basketball. And only, it wasn't meant to be. Lenard Santiago, the younger brother of volleyball towers Dindin and Jaja, is now playing for Colegio de San Juan de Letran - playing basketball, that is. "Galing akong Nueva Ecija then nung namatay yung father namin, kinuha ako ng mga ate ko and napunta ako sa Manila," he shared after the Squires season-opener last Monday. "Una akong nag-try sa NU, pero 'di ako nakuha kaya dinala nila ako sa Letran." Santiago worked on his game with the Intramuros-based squad's Team B for one year before making his big league debut last year in the NCAA. Now, he is playing out his last year in the Juniors. Of course, the 18-year-old shared that often, he gets asked why he's playing on the hardwood instead of the taraflex. "Kung tinatanong ako ng mga ate ko or ng ibang tao ba't ako nag-basketball, dun kasi ako lumaki sa probinsya at basketball ang naging laro ko," he said. That doesn't mean, however, that he does not play the sport his sisters made a name for themselves in. "Naglalaro rin po ako ng volleyball. Actually, kinuha nga rin po ako ng coach ng Letran so dual events po ako (sa NCAA 95)," he said. He then continued, "Second choice ko pa rin naman yung volleyball. Kung 'di po ako mag-succeed sa basketball, e 'di mag-volleyball po ako." Without a doubt, getting to play two sports does nothing but make Santiago a more complete athlete. "Sa basketball, nakakatulong yung volleyball kasi napapalakas yung legs ko at nagiging matalas ang utak ko sa pagbabasa ng tao," he shared. He then continued, "Sa volleyball naman, nakakatulong ang basketball sa bilis at kung paano magbasa ng blockings." At the same time, though, the 6-foot forward in basketball and open spiker in volleyball feels the heavier weight of the last name he carries on his back. "Minsan, may pressure po talaga dahil yung mga ate ko, may malaking pangalan sa volleyball," he said. Fortunately for him, his sisters are nothing but supportive of him. "Lagi nilang sinasabi sa akin, dapat daw mas nagfo-focus nga ako sa basketball kung yun ang gusto ko," he said. He then continued, "Pero okay lang din naman kasi may naitutulong sa akin ang volleyball at kaya ko namang i-balance." In Lenard, the Santiagos have a new tower rising in a different sport and a different school. And in the same way that Dindin and Jaja remain fixtures in the higher levels of volleyball, their younger brother hopes to do the same in basketball. "Basketball po ang unang choice ko laruin and gusto ko makapunta sa PBA in the future. Sana po," he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Mark Barroca got a lovely surprise last Father s Day

Magnolia guard Mark Barroca received the most precious gift a man could ever receive last Father’s Day. Though it took a month before the basketball star’s wife, Ruselle, to post the good news on her Youtube channel, it was still a heart-warming video for the now growing Barroca family nonetheless, as they announced that they are expecting a new baby.  “S’yempre sobrang overwhelmed ako,” said a very happy Mark Barroca on Sunday before the Hotshots’ Manila Clasico match against Barangay Ginebra in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Big Dome.    “Noong Father’s Day pa ‘yun, eh maaga pa para magsabi na buntis na siya eh kasi pwede pang mawala ‘yun ‘di ba?” he added. “So hinintay muna namin magkaroon ng heartbeat, nagpa-check up kami and ayun may heartbeat na.” Mark Barroca said that it is blessing that the couple has been praying for years.                View this post on Instagram                   Nung nakaraang Father’s Day, sobra akong natuwa sa regalo na binigay ng asawa ko. Yun na yung pinaka maganda at pinaka masarap na feeling naramdaman ko sa regalo na binigay niya sa akin. Salamat, Panginoon. Thank you mahal????????. Mahal na mahal ko kayo! Kung gusto nyong malaman kung ano yun please click the link in my bio. Blessed Sunday!!!!! A post shared by Andy Mark Barroca (@mark14barroca) on Jul 6, 2019 at 8:37pm PDT “Ang tagal namin hinintay, ang tagal namin nag-try and biniyayaan kami. Worth it para sa amin kasi ang tagal ng inantay namin, ang tagal na pinag-pray namin,” he said. “Ilang breaks na kami sa team na pumunta kami ng ibang bansa para mag try na magka baby pero wala talaga.” After Magnolia’s 2019 Philippine Cup Finals heartbreak to sister-team San Miguel Beer, Mark asked Ruselle for a short vacation in Dubai. A time away from the daily grind of playing professional basketball.   “Noong Dubai nga, biglaan lang. Pagkatapos namin ng Finals pumunta kami,” said Mark. “Sabi ko nga sobrang blessing na hindi man kami nanalo [sa championship] at least ‘yung blessing [na magkaroon ng anak] ‘yung mga hindi mababayaran na moment na narinig ko galing sa asawa ko.” Then came the Father’s Day surprise. Russelle filmed her preparation all the way to handing Mark her gift. Together with their 6-year-old daughter, Natalie Faith, Mark got the best gift that special day. “Tinanong niya kasi ako kung anong gift daw gusto ko para sa Father’s Day, sabi ko sa kanya na kahit ano lang na ibibigay niya. ‘Yun pala pinaghandaan niya, na-surprise talaga ako,” he said. “Kasi noong pagbigay niya ng regalo, nagulat ako, ‘Uy, ano to?’ Pagkakita ko may damit ng bata eh wala nang bata sa amin eh, malaki na si Natalie.” “Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Buntis ka ba?’ And sabi niya nga na four weeks na, sobrang saya ko lang noong time na ‘yun,” he added. Though the couple has yet to know the gender of their baby, Mark said that they already have possible names in mind. “May pangalan na kami, hindi pa namin sasabihin,” he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
