Despite having a P6-billion budget, the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) only managed to come up with a handwritten schedule of football matches for the 30th SEA Games.

Netizen Sai Mamalo posted online Sunday (November 24) a photo of the handwritten schedule at Hotel Jen, where some foreign football teams are billetted.

The schedule of football matches for Monday, November 25, was written with a permanent marker on what looked like an illustration board. It was placed on an easel stand.

Netizens poked fun at the cheap-looking sign for the football matches.

“baka naman national artist pa ang sumulat nyan,” said Twitter user @anneTpatica.

“SIS KAHIT PRINTER WALA TAYO??????” asked netizen @TahmThoughts.

“Baka sariling sikap na lang yan ng mga volunteers kasi baka walang mga gamit na naprovide. Juicekolord ang kalat kalat ni Cayetano!” said Twitter user @akoniawon, referring to Phisgoc chairman and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano.

“Such a minimalistic approach – clean, crisp.. cheap,” said netizen @Ipe_Hernandez.

“Wla man lang budget kahit thru print yung poster. Wtf naibulsa na ba yung budget?” asked Twitter user @JhakeManalo.

Nakikinig sa expert! Locsin OK with Leachon’s proposal on stopping 2nd wave of Covid infections

Unlike other officials, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. is taking an expert’s advise on how to stop a possible second wave of COVID-19 cases brought by the new variants of the virus

Dr. Tony Leachon, a former adviser of the National Task Force Against COVID-19, recently gave five steps on how to stop the surge of new infections due to the South Africa and UK variants.

He proposed the granular lockdowns of Pasay City and other hotspots, intensified testing, genomic surveillance and contact tracing, vaccination in NCR Hotspot, fasttracking of other vaccine arrivals and strict enforcement od health protocols.

Locsin retweeted the expert’s recommendation with a comment “perfect.”

This is far from the hostile answers of officials like Sec. Harry Roque and Sec. Carlito Galvez to the previous recommendations of Leachon, who has been vocal about the government’s handling of the pandemic.

In a Facebook post, the specialist expressed gratefulness to the former lawmaker for his support.

‘Can someone please take charge?’ Remulla says Filipinos need leadership amid surge in COVID-19 cases, food prices

The country is in dire need of leadership in the face of soaring COVID-19 cases and consumer prices.

Governor Jonvic Remulla made the plea for someone to “take charge” of the nation struggling with these challenges before it is too late. The appeal was made in his latest Facebook post.

“The people need ACTION.  The Filipinos need LEADERSHIP. We are waiting for DIRECTION. We desperately need SOLUTIONS,” he said.

“Can someone PLEASE take charge? Let us not wait before it is too late,” he said.

Remulla said the country, including his home province of Cavite, has experienced a sudden increase in COVID-19 infections amid fears of new United Kingdom and South African variants. 

He said Cavite’s cases have ballooned to 60-130 daily cases from 9-15 cases per day in the past few days. He also received reports that emergency rooms have been occupied in most hospitals.

He said he would have wanted to give solutions to the problems but only the national government can address the situation at this time.

“Sadly, wala sa kapangyarihan ko,” he said.

Remulla listed down the urgent concerns that needed the national government’s action. These are the following:

1. Ang halaga ng pamasahe (Land Transportation Office-Philippines at Department of Transportation – Philippines);

2. Ang presyo ng pamilihin katulad ng Baboy ay Manok (Department of Agriculture – Philippines, DTI Philippines);

3. Ang pagdating ng malawakang paglahok sa Vaccine Distribution (Department of Health);

4. Ang inflation ay nasa 5% na;

5. Habang ang pagbaba ng ekonomiya ay nasa miserableng 9.5%

Locsin defends Panelo: Nagji-jeep talaga siya!

By Prince Golez

Foreign Affairs Teodoro Locsin, Jr. defended Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Secretary Salvador Panelo following criticism of his recent jeepney ride to a public market in San Juan City.

“Those are not netizens but netwits. Panelo’s been taking jeepneys since he became a public official,” Locsin said in a March 7 tweet.

On Sunday, photos sent by a commuter to the Manila Bulletin showed Panelo riding a jeepney to see for himself if health safety protocols were being followed on public transport.

Other photos showed Panelo visiting the Agora Public Market.

Netizens were quick to comment on social media about the photos, calling the official’s recent trip a publicity stunt.

They also raised doubts about the commuter who followed Panelo to his trip to the wet market.
