Corona Impeachment: The First 3 Days

The impeachment trial against Philippine Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona began January 16. Serafin Cuevas, lead counsel for defense and former SC Associate Justice, argued a motion for preliminary hearing and dismissal of trial. This was denied by Presiding Officer Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

Motions to summon Corona, his relatives, House Speaker Sonny Belmonte and other congressmen have also been dismissed. There are 8 articles of impeachment.

The sequence will be 2 (Non-Disclosure of Declaration of Statements of Assets and Liability Net Worth); 1 (Partiality to the Arroyo Administration); and 7 (Improper Issuance of TRO to Allow President Arroyo and Husband To Flee the Country). It's nonlinear, like Pulp Fiction.

Senator Joker Arroyo cautioned: If the Impeachment Court issues a subpoena for Chief Justice Renato Corona's statement of assets and liabilities net worth, then the Supreme Court counteracts with a temporary restraining order, then it could spark a constitutional crisis.

A question from Senator Franklin Drilon delivered a victory to the prosecution. The witness on the stand was SC Clerk of Court Enriquetta Vidal. SC Justices are required to submit their statements of assets and liabilities net worth. Did Vidal bring a copy of Corona's SALN? Apparently she did. 

Senator-Judges Edgardo Angara, Jinggoy Estrada, Kiko Pangilinan, Chiz Escudero and Koko Pimentel assured her that she has nothing to fear if she gives it to the impeachment court despite an SC ruling forbidding it. 

Senator TG Guingona made clear that the impeachment court is not Congress that's why they took a diffrent oath. Vidal gave the copy. 

Happily, she won't be sanctioned, says SC Administrator Midas Marquez.

What REALLY Attracts Good Luck

Philippine Star Lifestyle columnist Wilson Lee Flores guested on Korina Sanchez's new radio morning show on DzMM on January 18, a few days before the Chinese Lunar New Year on the 23rd. 

That episode was one of best and most illuminating conversations I ever heard. For me, it crystallized the things I've always believed in.

Wilson, of Chinese descent and good friends with business tycoons and other influential people, shares the true secrets of good fortune.

Feng shui is fine, but infinitely more powerful are: positive thinking, hard work, helping others, respect for parents, and of course, prayer.

I am extremely gratified to know I'm on the right track. Thank you, Will Soon Flourish!

Just last January 13, the cruise ship Costa Concordia sailed from the port of Citivavecchia in Italy. Then near the island of Giglio off coast of Grosetto in Tuscany, the ship hit an unchartered reef. Swiftly, it turned on its starboard (right) side, half submerged in the freezing Mediterranean waters. There are at least 300 Filipino crew members on board.

All of them survived.

The latest batch of the heroic Pinoy crews, who helped save the passengers, arrives today in the Philippines.

Mabuhay and welcome home heroes!
Tonight at the Rizal Memorial Stadium, the Philippine Azkals will play against the Icheons Citizens football team from South Korea.

This is sports at its best: a game to raise funds for the victims of the landslides in Compostela Valley and of tropical storm Sendong in Iligan and Cagayan De Oro cities.

Go Azkals!
“I know you’re shining down on me from heaven, like so many friends we lost along the way; and I know eventually we’ll be together…”

These beautiful lines from the song ‘One Sweet Day’ by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men expresses our primal yearning to connect once more to our loved ones who have passed away.

I was touched to the core of my being upon reading One Last Time by the celebrated psychic medium Johnny Edward. It gave me the sense of freedom from the fear of the unknown, of what lies behind the veil, of what awaits us at the Other Side.

Writing stories is what I do, and my story, Will They Still Love Us When They Die?, is a retelling of some of the most unforgettable true stories showing us that those who passed through death emerge to a new life with the wonderful memories we gave them, and that bond remains forever.

We love them, we miss them, even though we know they are in a loving and blissful place, where they never want to leave, where we will all be together once more.

Once in a while, though. Even if we can’t feel it, they reach out to us as well, to tell us that they, too, love us, miss us, and they want us to know that, even for one sweet day, even for one last time.
