A different kind of Philippines: this is the promise set by President Rodrigo “Digong” Duterte as he pronounced that "change" is really coming to our country. During the campaign period, he said that blood will splatter on the streets as he leads the campaign against drugs. Indeed, blood is present all over the country as bodies of innocent-turned-alleged individuals scattered on the ground helplessly. And while everyone screams for justice and due process, Duterte still encourages more killings. The effect of his "change" is clearly noticeable. But this is not the "change" that we deserve
Reading the news nowadays, one could reflect that times have really changed. North Korea threatens merciless nuclear strike on the United States, death toll continues to rise in our country's war on drugs, and just when you thought there couldn't be any worse, Malacañang, who spent a lot of months of deliberation and consultation, has, unbelievably, granted full access to bloggers and other social media users to report and cover President Rodrigo Duterte’s activities.

The story told is of fallen tyrants.
I find it hard to believe that our own Colegio will spend a lucrative amount of almost 500 million for the sole renovation of the Blessed Antonio Varona Gymnasium.
Ang baybayin ay ang sinaunang pamamaraan ng pagsulat ng ating mga ninuno. Bago pa man tayo naimpluwensiyahan ng wikang nagmula sa mga dayuhang Kastila, ang baybayin ay naghatid na ng malaking atensyon sa pagiging malikhain ng mga sinaunang tao ng ating bayan. Hindi maikakaila na ang baybayin ay isang malaking handog ng ating mga ninuno sa kulturang Pilipino.
Perhaps you have panicked when you heard the news that booking a vehicle from Grab or Uber would be more difficult starting July 26. On that day, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will start to apprehend ride-sharing accredited drivers that don’t have the certificate of public convenience.
This has got to stop.
