PRESIDENT Duterte found his night life at the Palace' "Bahay Pangarap" quite lonely.
Former tenant Pres. Noy has endured his stay at the presidential rest house stoically. His only complaint was that his sex (love) life was like Coke Zero.
Pres. Du30 may soon get over his loneliness at his Manila abode, hopefully with his virility intact. He does not lack the company of the opposite sex if he so desires so. Definitely it is not Coke Zero for the former Davao City Mayor whose testosterone level, like Erap's, qualifies him to San Miguel Gin status (Laging Ganado).
The President does not need to stay idle during the restless hours of the night to dawn. He can stay "ganado" by keeping a running score of the night's police harvest of due process victims.
For purposes of transparency and accountability, Pampanga lawmakers should bare and publicize their proposed projects and programs in their districts.
Our Representatives are authorized to endorse and fund projects via the Budget Department which is about to finalize the national P3.35 trillion budget for 2017. By disclosing their projects the people will know if these will provide infrastructures that are necessary, practical, and urgent in their communities and not purely for high earning returns for the lawmaker.
Pres. Duterte's regular trip to Davao City-Manila and vice versa poses a security nightmare. With the ease and apparent impunity of "tanim bala" suspects at the NAIA it is not difficult to have a bomb planted at the commercial airline (Cebu Pacific) patronized by the President.
Of the known politicians with gubernatorial aspirations for Pampanga, it is only Vice Gov. Dennis Pineda who periodically rallies his cabalen to join the fight against illegal drugs. While 4th District Rep. Rimpy Bondoc came hard on the "mystery establishments" in San Simon town, he has not sounded a call against local drug lords. Bacolor Mayor Jomar Hizon has been quiet on the current campaign on drugs, occupied as he is on flood control problems in his town. VG Dennis should initiate a Sanggunian probe into the nameless enterprises in San Simon. If he ignores this problem, it will be raised as an issue against him in the gubernatorial election.
The Vice Gov. seems to strike an image of a fearless executive but he needs to be active and articulate like Bondoc and Hizon. He should start redacting an on the job training by taking over some choice speaking engagements of Nanay Gob.
Investment gurus want that Clark be promoted as a medical tourism destination. With the Medical City already in place, the proposal is not farfetched or impractical, says Mabalacat City Mayor Marino Morales.
Thailand and India are now the two leading regional medical tourism centers. Clark can become the third one. We have some of the world class practitioners in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, according to the flamboyant city mayor.
The physical rejuvenation and beauty industry will boost our dollar revenues. Clark is the ideal place for medical tourism. Firstly it is the hub of air transportation in the region. It has golf courses where husbands or spouses and kin of recovering surgery patients can while the hours away. And posh hotels and fine dining establishments for the visitors, adds Mayor Boking.
The medical tourism market will largely cater to Asians who have problems with squat noses and relatively small boobs. Most of the high revenues will come from breast augmentation work and nose jobs.
Korean women need not go to Bangkok or Mumbai to increase bust size. Expert aesthetic surgeons can do the job at Clark. Japanese and Chinese ladies who go for eye slit enlargement will fulfill their desire ditto.
I am afraid that local millionaire-playboys who desire penile elongation procedures will have to wait a while.
Philippine reconstructive surgeons are still bogged down in debates on ethical and moral issues with some members of the Conference of Bishops of the Philippines (CBCP) who see the protocol as a potential WMD (weapon of mass destruction). Instead of the protracted debates, why not ask, via an SWS survey, if the wives prefer a "dagdag bawas" as the case maybe.
