Andi Eigenmann, Jake Ejercito not back together

Bret Jackson, Andi Eigenmann’s suitor, assured that the actress has not gotten back together with ex-boyfriend Jake Ejercito. Jake and Andi were recently spotted together in Singapore with their friends. But Bret said this does not mean they are back together. He did not give any more details since it’s Andi’s story to tell. She has a different story with Jake than with him, Bret said, adding that he and Andi remain close to each other. He considers Andi his bestfriend because he knows she’ll be there for him if he needs her and he will be with her too if she needs him. “For Andi and I, it was this different kind of closeness, na parang we are there for each other in a lot of times.” Andi and Bret worked together as a loveteam for their movie, “Your Place or Mine.” Asked if these recent reports about them is just a promo for their movie, Bret said people are allowed to speculate. But once the movie is over, they can both prove that they are close friends even after their project together. It’s up to the people to realize what’s the deal between him and Andi. Bret will celebrate his 24th birthday on March 15. All he wishes for is to maintain whatever it is that’s happening in his life or for something better to come along.  Full story...

Lessons from a raid


MOST of the details contained in the 120-page report of the Philippine National Police Board of Inquiry on the commando raid in Mamasapano, Maguindanao have been reported in the past weeks. But the BOI report did present interesting findings and conclusions. One is that there is a chain of command even in a civilian police force, and it was broken in the Mamasapano raid on Jan. 25, with tragic consequences.  Full Article...

The love boat



SOME years ago, then House Speaker Jose de Venecia regaled an audience of US Pinoys at the Philippine consulate in San Francisco with a portrait of a Philippines flying high on every conceivable front. During the open forum, I candidly commented that if it wasn’t because I could see who was delivering the talk, I could have sworn he was describing another country. I showed him several newspaper headlines that contradicted many of the rosy things he had reported.Full Article...

Marriage, dreams, suicide and immigration!



EVERY month with incredible support from my office, we will deal with several hundreds of immigration and visiting visa files from a number of countries around the world. The following story is true but do not assume this case is from the Philippines -- the man in question (I will refer to him as John) is aware of my personal interest in his file and knows I am writing his story.

Ganap na kapayapaan sa gitna ng ganap na kaguluhan



Sa gitna ng kaguluhan sa ating mundo, saan tayo kumukuha ng kapayapaan o pagasa ng kapayapaan? Napakaraming pagaaway, giyera, patayan at sari saring kaguluhang at kawalan ng seguridad ang bumabagabag sa atin. Nandyan ang napakaraming patayan dala ng terorismo gaya ng nangyari sa France sa Charlie Hebdo magazine headquarters na ikinamatay ng mahigit isang dosenang tao. Isis, Al Qaeda at iba pang radical extremist na nais itatag ang paniniwala sa buong mundo at patayin ang humahadlang dito. Sa ating bansa naman ay ang pagpaslang sa 44 special action forces sa Maguindanao ng mga rebeldeng MILF. At pang araw araw na kaguluhan, krimen, problema na bumabalot sa ating paligid at mundo na nagdadala ng kabalisahan, takot at pangamba. Saan nga tayo makakakuha ng kapayapaan at seguridad?  Full Article...

Phillipines: Enslaved by corruption
