I can relate to the irreverent, maverick, hippy cowboy character of Robin Padilla in Di Na Natuto. Sharon Cuneta plays one of their farm cowherders, so naturally, they have horseback riding moments for the fans. His brother (Edu Manzano) tried to poison their father the governor (Subas Herrero), and to protect the secret that he's not a true son, kidnaps Sharon and kills her mother (Nida Blanca). Robin's sidekick is Niño Muhlach whose dad is Subas' loyal friend Amado Cortez. It was shot in the lahar wastelands of Pampanga, exactly where I was just passing through that moment, nearly midnight on the last week of January 2012. The DVD ended while the bus was traversing the slithering, intestine-like mountainside road to Olongapo
Sometimes I can sense what others are thinking, sometimes it doesn't work. How do you develop telepathic consistency? That was my question to Nomer Lasala when he was guest on Heard On Thursdays on Monster Radio RX 93.1. It was read by talk show host Rafael Reyes last Jan 5. Nomer is a telepath, like Charles Xavier in X-Men and Edward Cullen in Twilight. He showcases his telepathic powers in Mind Master on GMA-7. Dennis Trillo was host and Nomer read the mind of Aljur Abrenica on the last episode I saw. Nomer's advice was to meditate more regularly, be more receptive to your intuition. Practice makes perfect. Also to read the classic book Silva Mind Control Method by Jose Silva. I actually have a copy but it was destroyed during Ondoy. Psi powers are real. Telepathy is cool. But it's always spooky when somebody else reads your mind
By God's grace, I won a myPhone smartphone from a text contest. The show was the radio-TV call-in counseling program Usapang Kapatid, hosted by Fr. Nono, SJ, and Sr. Bubbles (11pm, Saturdays, DZMM Teleradyo) The question was "What does Easter mean to you?" 3 answers will be chosen among the text replies, prize is phone. That was April 15, and the winners were announced and read on air April 22. Here is my entry, word for word: I'm in a transition period to a different line of career, and I don't think it's a coincidence that it's happening during Easter season. It's a growth process, complete with growing pains, like the passion of calvary. At the same time, 'tis the season for moving on, for letting go of the past. Christ rose from death for our salvation, and I believe it also symbolizes the gift of being given a second chance. Easter, for me, is a new beginning.
Look at that: kids playing on a haystack in a field. Such a beautiful sight! I love children. There is a special joy in watching them play, free from the cares of the world and the dark side of adults. I took this photo in Tanza,Cavite last March. There are lots of open spaces too, like Smallville
