Bilang mang-aawit, kahit lilima lang ang makikinig, ako pa rin ay aawit. Bilang artista, kahit konti na lang ang manonod sa pelikula ko, patuloy pa rin akong gagawa ng makabuluhang pelikula.”

      • Thank you very much! I started following your blog here on wordpress as well. Thank you for taking time in posting this information. I’m happy with the results. 😀

        I’m happy that Nora Aunor won although I sense that the decision re Best Picture is debatable. 🙂

  1. I watched the “El Presidente”. Ang ganda po, naka 2D pa ang movie. Ito talaga first choice dahil naging idol ko agad si E.R. Ejercito from his last year movie na “Hari ng Tondo”. Pero ang napansin ko lang, pinasama ang image ni Andres Bonifacio sa movie na ito. Kaya ngayon, I am planning to read some articles about Andres Bonifacio.

    • Actually, Aguinaldo is the original “TRAPO”. He is the one behind the kangaroo court that issued a guilty verdict for Bonifacio and his brother. The death of Bonifacio eliminates Aguinaldo’s number one contender to the leadership of Philippine revolution.

      The Tejeros convention (though presided by Bonifacio) that elected Aguinaldo as president is composed mostly of the Cavite’s elites. And when Bonifacio was elected as the Director of the Interior, someone from Aguinaldo’s group (I think its Tirona) blocked his election coz he is not a lawyer (what a reason, hahaha). That caused Bonifacio to be mad and walk out. And the rest was history, Bonifacio was allegedly hacked to death in Naic, Cavite. And there were some report that his wife was almost got raped by one of Aguinaldo’s men who attacked Bonifacio’s group in Indang that leads to his arrest.

      Si Aguinaldo ay isang elitesta na nag hari-harian sa Cavite. Ayaw niya kay Bonifacio dahil siyay galing sa mahirap. Malaking sampal sa kanya na ang isang galing sa isang mayamang angkan, maging tauhan lang ng isang bayaning galing sa angkan ng mga mahihirap.
