December is Villains Awareness Month.

Just saw the evening news. My heart bleeds for Mr. Lauro Vizconde ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I found the following things very interesting today (aside from the events in work of course): Huber Webb’s acquittal (kinda strange, but it reminds me of “12 Angry Men” – cannot bring down a verdict of guilty unless it’s beyond a reasonable doubt) and Hubert Webb and Hayden Kho acquitted, on the same day. Meanwhile, people have already forgotten about the plagiarism case of the Supreme Court. I sense reruns of Vizconde Massacre movies in Cinema One and Kapamilya Blockbusters.Should we expect Carlo J. Caparas’s “The Hubert Webb True Story: Oh Lord, Why Me?”?

For 15 years, the Webbs were vocal about Hubert’s innocence. I don’t believe that ALL of them are innocent. Supreme Court, please give justice to Mr Lauro Vizconde and his family. The decision was made fifteen years after he was jailed and the circumstances were narrated in way that provides a completely different narrative and there was hardly any nuance in that new narrative at all in terms of the mistakes in the legal procedures that were followed. It was just too glaringly scripted. The new ruling portrays the proceedings of the previous trial as completely lacking in credibility when in fact so many witnesses testified as to what happened.

Really outrageous and it’s amazing how the interviews conducted by some magazines in recent weeks were written in such a way as to pre-condition the mind of the public to his eventual acquittal ; the guy and his family were bent on twisting the truth by shrouding themselves with religiosity… Justices being bribed is a no brainier in the Philippines, prompting Webbโ€™s lawyers to write the decision. That’s why no matter how I want to believe the acquittal, my mind refuses. This is so alarming!

The media is trying to indicate that Hubert is the victim….they talk about how the webbs spent their Christmas in prison…etc… But what about the Vizconde? They are the true victim here…. the picture of him (L.Vizconde) in today’s news broke my heart! Letโ€™s pray for him and his family.But my mom said: We donโ€™t kn0w the real story or truth behind the massacre but hoping that Hubert Webb is really innocent & that Vizconde family will get justice!!!

new facebook layout, in case you guys want to update yours.

Facebook just changed its profile page layout again, grrr… It takes over-sharing to a new level; unless your information and privacy settings are changed, everyone will see your occupation, schools, birth-date, hometown, relationship status, etc. right under your name. (the new page view is here: facebook profile It’s not available to everyone unless you opt to change it because it takes effect next year, but I already did just to see and kind of regret it.

This new Facebook layout means that it’s time to stop tagging photos of things for sale, especially if they’re fake. Yes?ย  Facebook does have privacy settings you can change ๐Ÿ™‚ just head here to adjust: http://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=privacy&ref=mb

The photo albums will have to be adjusted individually though, so all you have to do is click on the ‘edit album’ tab ๐Ÿ™‚

Talk about wow!!!

December 3 and 22 days to Christmas. I’m sharing with everyone the first blog for the month. Honestly, Charice looks like a Korean. It was an excellent rendition of Christmas song. This is one girl who has literally grown up. I specially like the part when it was mentioned by the host that Charice came from the Philippines! I’m very proud to be a Filipino! Too bad there were technical difficulties moments before her performance…David Foster had to do adlib for live TV; I guess Charice is still too shy to say something. …Plus, they did not show her performance on the big screen in Rockefeller Center. I think its sabotage! Last year, they cut short her performance on Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade!
