Inflation, graft and corruption, and crimes; these are the words that depict the typical picture of our country.

Indeed, there were changes happened. Our country goes from worse to worst. It’s simply because global financial crisis adds insult to the injury. Another ‘ouch’ from the Filipinos’ mouths.

Newly-graduates welcomed to the world of unemployed, newly-borne babies to the crib of poverty, and let us welcome the political candidates to the world of graft and corruption. This is quite a sweeping statement but I don’t mean all of them –just most of them. As we often hear, “Bato-bato sa langit, ang tamaan ay ‘wag magagalit”.

Philippines is not the sole country that is suffering from financial crisis. Yet, our Motherland is always on the list of the third-world country. When will it be gone from that category?

The fame of H1N1 influenza A virus already reached us; this virus adds saddle to our dying Motherland, especially in the field of tourism. As well as global crisis adds burden to the industries of education and commerce.

Two thousand and ten’s election is at hand. Political candidates are shining to stardom through commercial advertisements and tarpaulins. We are not seeking for the next big stars but for the trust-worthy leaders of this country.

Will our country be able to survive these obstacles? The answer is in our hands. Use your head wisely, your ears sharply and your eyes clearly. Learn to shape ourselves better and start from our own little ways.

Predicament is the picture of our country. The image that will always remain. Wake-up everyone and smile! Let us try to take another picture. A better one, perhaps. Newly graduates need jobs, babies need better society, and political candidates need not to be corrupt -as if I’m good enough to blame them-.

As we often seen and heard, let’s take seriously the line, “Ako ang simula”. Quite funny? But I’m not kidding.

honestly, i'd rather not

honestly, i'd rather not vote.

kaya lang, sayang ang "right of suffrage" ko.

hehe.

we'll release profiles of presidentiables in our publication.

yes, even if i read all of their profiles, mahirap talagang mamili lalo na at hindi ko pa din sila tunay na kilala.

 

'wag ka maguluhan, follow your instinct and vote the one you trust.:)

thanks

 

ayoko din hindi sana bomoto...piro sayang naman...

naktatak na kasi sa isipan ng mga tao ang corruption kahit sino pa ang manalo... Ung mga nagasto nila sa election for sure bawi.in nla un pag manungkulan na cla...

ang laki ng gastos nila sa mga kompanya na ginawa nila samantalang ang daming naghihirap at walang makain...

may mapagkatiwalaan pa ba tayo na kandidato?
