The Financial Analyst of World Bank would like to inform each and everyone of you that the present currency exchange rate of US Dollar to Peso is actually $1 = P52. Your government is manipulating the exchange rate for some years now. It is very much improbable and impossible that the Philippine Peso is appreciating compare to Euro, British Pound, Rials, and any other foreign currency. Even your ASEAN neighboring countries are suffering from the Global Crisis. Singapore , a developed country is affected by depreciation of their currency what more of your country?

We admire you for your hard work but we also pity you for having such a very corrupt government that is taking advantage of your hard earned money.

The ARROYO ADMINISTRATION is blatantly milking each and every OFW’s all over the world of billions of pesos for its own greedy, selfish ends. Investigations reveal that this milked money from OFWs will be spent to BRIBE not only PGMA’s pet CROCODILES in CONGRESS but some in the SENATE as well for her to PERPETUATE IN POWER BEYOND 2010. The rest would be deposited to the family’s SECRET ACCOUNT in Switzerland .

Another money-making scheme is the LOTTERY DRAWS. Filipinos should be aware that all LOTTO DRAWS are orchestrated, and big money goes to the two sons of the lady president. Recent example is the SUPER LOTTO 6/49 draw, where supposedly two individuals from Luzon won. Do you know WHO these individuals are? It’s Mikey and Datu, who else? One might ask how can the draw be rigged when it is being televised in front of millions of viewers. The answer is simple. As you all know, all bet combinations are being entered into PCSO’s main data base as it is on-line, therefore, it is easy to determine which combinations were NOT betted upon. If they want to raise big money, no winners will be declared until the JACKPOT reaches sky-high because they could dictate the outcome at will. When it’s “HARVEST TIME”, viola, there would be “winner or winners” and the process repeats all over again. One might ask how this is being done. One insider told our investigators that actually the “DRAWN BALLS”, six balls to be exact, are the only set which could fit into the transparent tube which sucks the balls up. All others are slightly bigger than the diameter of the tube which could not be distinguished by the viewers, therefore, there’s no way they could be drawn! You Filipinos are being skinned alive, fried in your own fat and lard by your own government. Do you ever wonder why president-elect BARACK OBAMA, avoids your president like a stinking leper?

How true???

I am for GIBO… Philippine Election 2010

…forwarded email…

a friend forwarded this material with this note . . .I realize that some of you have already decided on your own candidate for President, but I’m forwarding you this e-mail written by a 19 year old so that we may all have the opportunity to see others in a different light.
Let’s make sure that we are able to assess our candidate properly. We deserve the candidate that we vote.


Dear Friends,
With May 10, 2010, fast approaching, Im excited because as a 19 year old, I will be voting for the first time.
As a young girl, my vote represent a turning point for my future and I want to vote for the right person for the job.
As a BS Psychology student, this is how I decide my vote,
1. I am hiring a PRESIDENT (to take care of my future)
2. I have a 2 job resumes and applications (No party affliations)
3. I asked myself, who am I going to hire?
4. One resume is the name of NOYNOY AQUINO and the second resume is GIBO TEODORO.
5. Now, I am reading the resume of NOYNOY AQUINO and in his resume,
1. 9 years as congressman and 3 years as senator
2. Bills filled: 8 (Including Tarlac Day 2005)
3. Bills passed: ZERO
4. Very quiet and prefer to stay at the side rather than engage in discussion (No Legislation to speak off)
1. Never run a city; never run a business (no leadership to speak off)
2. Never lead the people in crisis because he prefer to keep quiet.
3. The least experience among the 8 candidate.
1. Retail Sales Supervisor – Nike Shoes
2. Assistant for advertising and promotion- Mondragon (Owned by Cory’s Friend who owes her a favor)
3. VP Best Security Corp (Family owned)
4. Field Service Manager – Azucarera (Family owned)
1. Ateneo de Manila – AB Economic

6. Then, I am reading the resume of GIBO TEODORO and in his resume,

1. 9 years as congressman
2. Bills filled: 113
3. Bills co-authored: 200
4. Bills passed into law: 12
5. Bills passed in congress but pending in senate: 65

7. Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from West Negros University Bacolod
7. After reading the resumes (dont look at party affiliation), GIBO TEODORO has way better experience, with competence, charisma, character and better platform.
8. Why GIBO?

How the candidates handle their campaign speaks volume on how they will handle this nation. It’s sad to see that this campaign period, though already in the 21st century, is still much uncivilized. Someone said it’s the dirtiest campaign since 1960s. Campaigning for the presidency should not be fueled by hatred or anger. It shouldn’t be focused on mudslinging or maligning your opponents. The way other presidentiable’s handle their campaign is very insulting to the Filipinos. I think we deserve more than the negative campaigning they are throwing daily at our face through the mainstream media. How can these presidentiables bring positive change if their campaigns are fueled by hate, anger, and mudslinging?

“For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.”
Matthew 12:34

Before the campaign started, I recall that these candidates promised to be always positive in their campaigns. Above all them, only Gibo stood to this promise. Until now, he stands on his promise and has executed positive campaigning. He refrained from putting down his opponents by saying bad things against them. Even though he’s been targeted from within his own party and from without, he still refuse to break his own principle of positive campaigning. He indeed embodies a new breed of politics.

“A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue.”
Proverbs 11:12

Though Gibo is not a biblical Christian, his campaign showed christian traits…not driven by hatred, no mudslinging, no badmouthing, very professional. I remember the Good Samaritan story. It wasn’t the Jews who were declared righteous, but the Samaritan. Why? Because his acts are righteous.

“Gibo maintains the highest form of professionalism in his campaign.”
– REP. CYNTHIA VILLAR (Wife of Presidentiable Manny Villar)

“Teodoro is the only presidential candidate with the three important attributes a good president must have, integrity, competence and character”
– BISHOP OSCAR CRUZ (a known GMA critic)


“Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.”
Deuteronomy 1:13

It’s sad to know that numerous people used to trade intelligence, knowledge, and ability over popularity and some empty slogan. Yet the Bible made a great emphasis on these things in choosing leaders. First above all requirements in bagging this top job must be competence. In all job applications, competence is the default priority requirement. We don’t just choose someone who will come up and say great words which are not backed up by their track records.

Obviously, among the 8 presidentiables, the most competent is Gibo. It’s very clear that even blind people can see that he’s the brightest among them all. Yes, even his opponents acknowledge this.

Look at what his fellow public officials and top personalities are saying about Gibo:

“Dependable, thoroughly professional, incomparably competent…”

“personal background wise, Gibo is the most qualified among presidential aspirants.”

“the most qualified person”
“Gibo is an upright man, intelligent, articulate. I have high respect for him,”

“With Gibo, you can sleep well knowing that the government is in good hands.”

“Gibo is a decent and qualified candidate. That much I can say because I know him personally. We worked together when I was still lieutenant colonel and I’ve got nothing to say against him.”

“Gibo is the true jewel of the cabinet.”

“I believe that Secretary Teodoro is the most effective and most competent candidate for president who will bring the best program of reform to Mindanao,”


Gibo’s platform is a cut above the rest. His platform is crystal clear and realistic. He does not suffer from the messianic disease which infected the other candidates. They claim to be greater than Jesus. They claim to eradicate poverty and corruption in six years which even Jesus wasn’t able to and can’t do in this present world. He needs to make a new earth to make that happen. Erase corruption and poverty? Those are pure LIES. No one, when you read the Bible, can do that in this fallen world. They promise big words without clear platform on how to bring progress in this country.

Instead of laying their platforms, the “leading” presidentiables are banking on Pres. Gloria Arroyo’s low rating. It is funny that these candidates should be thankful to PGMA because without her “bad reputation”, they have nothing to base their candidacy.

I thoroughly understand that you can’t lead people without a vision and a clear plan on how to fulfill that vision. Empty rhetoric will lead you to nowhere. This nation if led by someone without a vision and a plan will only be reduced to chaos. That is why the candidate’s vision and platforms are very crucial in choosing whom to vote.

Did you ever give enough time and effort just to know your chosen candidate’s vision and platform? Did you ever compare it to the other candidates?

“Mr. Teodoro pointed out specific programs, specific goals and specific time lines to achieve such goals. He’s very articulate… we think he’s very good.”
– ALBERTO A. LIM, Makati Business Club (MBC) executive director

“As usual Gibo (Teodoro) was MOST IMPRESSIVE.” Speaking to reporters after yesterday’s presidential debate, Dee said Teodoro’s platform and answers stood out against other aspirants who attended the forum.
Vice Chairman, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry


Throughout history, great leaders always have a high level of charisma. Wherever he goes, when people see him and hear him, they tend to be attracted to him. He used to inspire people to go beyond the status quo, to go beyond which is mediocre.

In building this nation, unity is of utmost importance. We need a leader who can unite us together and lead us forward to our great destiny as a nation. Most of the presidentiables are very divisive. And most of them have already entered into a verbal war against each other. How can they unite this nation if they have planted much division right now in their campaigns? The only one who has the biggest chance to unite this nation is the one who is able to restrain himself from resorting to bad-mouthing, mudslinging, hatred and anger. And that is Gibo.

How about PGMA?

Actually, majority of people know in their hearts that indeed Gibo is the most qualified for the presidency. The only thing which holds them back is his association with President Gloria M. Arroyo. It is highly proven; even acknowledged by his opponents that Gibo’s integrity is untainted. To judge him just because he is under the administration is totally unfair. If the same standard of judgment be used against all of us, then we will never be chosen for any kind of job. Why? Because I bet all of us have one way or the other have “evil” associations.Jesus was with Judas for more than 3 years. Does it mean Jesus equals Judas? This only needs minimal common sense to arrive at the right conclusion.

As a student, I was thought that before making any decisions, or hiring a person, weigh all the credentials and who among the applicants has the tools and programs that can lead to better tomorrow. Decide whom you thinks is the greatest with regards to character, competence, platform, and charisma rather than being tossed by every wind that comes along.

lets hire the RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB not HIRE A PERSON BECAUSE HE WAS THROWN BY EMOTIONS. Lets hire a person with substance not style.
Tough time requires strong leadership and there is not time for on-the-job-training.

As for me, I’m placing my vote to Sec. Gilbert Teodoro, Jr. I can say he is indeed a rare kind in Philippine politics. Win or lose, I don’t care. At least I have a clear conscience that I voted the best man for the job. At least I won’t be having some kind of guilt and regret when our country is again under the leadership of incompetent ones. Actually it is never Gibo’s loss when he loses. It is the country’s loss.
1. I dont hire a person because his accomplishment is being a son of former senator and president.
2. I dont hire a person because my emotion dictates more than my rational being.
3. If we hire a person without experience to take care of our future, what do we get in return?
It is like you own a company, do you trust a person to manage your company without experience? or with experience?
100% you will tell me that I will hire a person WITH EXPERIENCE.
4. I am young but I wont trust a person TO TAKE CARE OF MY FUTURE because his mom just died, emotions are high and we let him become president.
5. He has “clean image” because he prefer to say at the side, he prefer to just keep silent. Maybe if he become president, he will just be as silent as when he was a congressman and senator.
7. He should have walk his talk not talk and forget.

Original story posted @


I am telling this story because I want everyone to know that devious people exist in our society and they will prey on people regardless of their age because they can. Because our local government allow them to. Because despite the numerous complaints from victims they still operate.

This is my Mother In Law’s story but I want you to know, because who knows, maybe their next victim might be your own mother or mother in law, or aunt or sister or brother or worse, it might be YOU.

My mother in law is a senior citizen, she is an unemployed widow without any pension. Oh, don’t worry, she can manage, my father in law made sure she would be well taken care of before he died, so her financial status is not something she ever had to worry about, even though she did, you know how old people are, always counting their coins.. LOL.. I don’t know if my mother in law counted coins, but I remember my great grandmother counted coins before she went to bed every freakin night.
So anyway, back to the story..

It was April 14th and my mother in law was going about her normal day, B had already left for work and the kids and I were still in Manila. At around 8 or 9 in the morning, she got a call from a certain “Hazel” from ARYSTA Marketing. At first the lady was looking for the person who the telephone number was registered to, I know that it’s a telemarketing plan, I used to be a telemarketer, I know where local call centers get their leads. The phone book, however, because people here rarely update their listings on the phone book, they never assume because some people have their phone numbers still registered to the same person even after their death. So my MIL said that the number was old and that it was still registered to her diseased husband, when she asked what the call was about, this lady started telling her about a “surprise gift” my MIL has just won and then gave her a “control number” as well as directions to their “local” office here in Baguio. I didn’t believe they were actually calling from outside our city, it just wasn’t believable. Of course my MIL was skeptical, after all, how can anyone win something without joining any contests or raffle draws or whatever. She asked the lady why she had won when she hasn’t join any contests or raffle draws and the lady simply said it was because “her” number was the one flashing on her computer screen which meant she was a winner. Yeah, I know, this screamed SCAM loud and clear!

My MIL’s curiosity got the better of her, and so since she was already in town running some errands, she decided to drop by the said office of ARYSTA MARKETING, located at the Porta Vaga Building in Session Road.

When she entered the small, crowded little space of a mock showroom, the doors closed behind her, she was entertained by a gay guy named “Reno”. My MIL asked told Reno about the call she has gotten early in the morning and the supposedly “surprise gift” she has won, Reno asked if that was the only thing the caller told her and asked about a “control number” which my MIL provided. After checking that the “control number” was “valid” (Yeah freakin right?!) more of their staff went out from the small back office and congratulated my MIL for winning an awesome price in the form of a massage chair. So they asked her to try it out, she sat on the massage chair and then the staff, there were 5 of them now all surrounding her, accommodating her, seemingly screaming in her ear with exaggerated excitement. My MIL felt that there was something off but she was too overwhelmed by the screaming and the continued chatter going on around her. She didn’t quite understand what was happening. She just sat in the massage chair while some of the staff talked to her about their other products. She finally got up from the massage chair, but one staff member still kept massaging her back while the others hovered around to ask her some questions. They asked if she was a PLDT subscriber, and she said yes, a burst of screaming, clapping and exaggerated excitement rung through the air from the staff that my MIL felt really uncomfortable, she said she felt weak and that something was pushing against her chest. They were congratulating her yet again as she received another “free gift”. Then someone asked her if she had a credit card, to which she said yes, and then they asked if it was a BDO (Banco De Oro) credit card, and she said no, it was a BPI (Bank of the Philippine Islands) credit card, another round of exaggerated congratulations, screaming and clapping, she won another “free gift” this time from BPI. At this point, my MIL remembers one of the staff asking to see her credit card to supposedly “verify” if it was indeed a valid credit card so she can receive her supposedly “free gift”. They gave it back after a few minutes. They swiped the freakin card without her approval, without her knowing, without her being fully aware of what was happening! Damn those freakin scam artists!!! Damn them to fuckin hell! At this point my MIL told them how uncomfortable she was and told them she was having a hard time breathing, they then gave her some water. They probably drugged her! She drank the water and shortly after, they resumed hovering over her and shoving all these supposedly “free gifts” at her. Somewhere in all the chaos, she was able to utter phrases like, “Am I dreaming?” and “Is this for real?” to which the staff responded with a boisterous round of laughter and exaggerated laughter. My MIL was not at all appeased, she felt more uncomfortable, sort of dizzy but didn’t know exactly what to make of it. So then one staff member asked her to pick an envelope, the envelopes contained more “free gifts”, what a shocker. My MIL chose one, and surprise surprise, she won the highest prize of P2000. The staff let out another round of loud congratulatory screams, laughter and relentless clapping. By this time, my MIL has totally lost it. She was so overwhelmed with the noise that she didn’t quite place what was happening. One of the staff members of ARYSTA MARKETING then explained to her that the value of all the “free gift” she has gotten has reached P107,00++ but because she was a PLDT Subscriber with a BPI credit card, they are going to give her a 50% discount and then because she also opened a P2000 envelope the total amount comes down to P54,900. My MIL couldn’t grasp what was going on as she was still feeling dizzy and more uncomfortable than ever. The staff packed all of her “free gifts” and offered to take her home, but before they did, they asked her to compose a letter, the letter said something like “I, Lucita Fallarme, am allowing the use of my credit card for yadda yadda yadda..”. I don’t know the exact contents of the said letter, but I didn’t have to know, everyone knows you don’t need to write a letter when you use your credit card! This is totally something unheard of!!! Of course you need to sign a receipt but that’s about it and then of course you get to keep a copy of the said receipt. They didn’t give her a copy of the letter they asked her to compose as well as the receipt of the transaction, I don’t know if they did give her a receipt, she didn’t mention it, I’ll ask her in the morning and tell you later. So they finally got a cab, loaded all the stuff, a massage chair, a slimming belt, a utensil pack, a digital stove and a multi cooker, and escorted her home. While in the cab, she supposedly got a call from her bank, congratulating her for using her credit card, totally absurd, banks don’t care whether or not you use your credit card or not, I’ve used mine so may times and I never got a “congratulatory” call, not once! They were supposed to set it up and try it out as soon as they got to our house, but thankfully, there was a power interruption and they weren’t able to set it up. After they have left, my MIL was still feeling uncomfortable and so she decided to take a bath. After her bath, it was like her senses were back to normal and she realized what has happened to her, she quickly dressed and went to the bank and told the bank what had happened, the bank said that the best they can do is block ARYSTA from charging anything on her account but advised her to ask them to cancel the transaction. She also asked the bank if they called her to congratulate her for using her credit card and they said no, they don’t do that. I knew someone from ARYSTA faked that call! So she made a quick stop to the Police’s office to have an escort and then quickly went back to the ARYSTA MARKETING office and demanded that they take all the stuff back and cancel the transaction in her credit card. Way to go, Ma! Of course, they gave her all kinds of excuses and stuff, she demanded they cancel the transaction because she was not herself during that time and she claimed she has been “hypnotized” or something. They reminded her of the letter she made out, to which she said she wasn’t aware of and she pointed out that if she were to use her credit card, she didn’t need to write a letter like that, which was so true.

So anyway, it has been almost 3 weeks and still the transaction have not been canceled. This afternoon, Reno paid us a visit, he came with a shady document in hand. Take a look:

Click the image for a larger, clearer view

I did not let my MIL sign this document, first of all, it was full of grammatical errors. Second, the dates on some of the documents’ parts don’t match. Third, it looks more like a scrap paper than a legal document, you know something you won’t think twice to read before spitting your gum in it and throwing it out. Fourth, it is not a credit memo, which we need to show the bank to be able to have the bank completely cancel the transaction. Fifth we are not asking for a refund, but a cancellation of transaction.

Is that so hard to freakin understand? All we need is a fucking assurance that we will get a FULL CANCELLATION OF TRANSACTION. Can’t you dense people get that simple freakin point? OMG, it’s not rocket science! I spoke to the very rude, very incompetent supposedly “customer service representative” of ARYSTA marketing and he didn’t fucking get what I was saying because they kept on insisting about the things they want. They wanted the stuff back first, the supposedly “free gift” they gave my MIL. WTF?! If it was free, why do you want it back?! So then I spoke to the Supervisor, Shiela, who is more of a fuckin schmuck than that gay guy who claimed to be a customer representative though clearly he doesn’t know how to speak or act or be like a customer service representative at all. And get this, they don’t have a Marketing Department, what the hell kind of establishment are you if you don’t have a freakin marketing department? Obviously ARYSTA MARKETING is a shady company which prey on innocent people. I was so pissed this afternoon, I swear I wanted to rip that gay guy Reno’s head off, but he wasn’t the one to blame, he was just following orders, poor schmuck. I’d really like to get my hands on that gay guy and that Shiela I talked to on the phone, why? That Sheila cussed me! Bitch! She used a local bad word which when roughly translated meant my mom was a whore, and I am not one to take that sitting down.

BTW, Free and gift shouldn’t even be in the same sentence, it’s redundant! Of course a gift is free, otherwise it wouldn’t be a gift at all! DUH!

So anyway, after this guy Reno left, unsuccessful of their plan to make my MIL sign a seemingly shady contract, I searched online for this said ARYSTA MARKETING company, and lo and behold, I come across numerous complaints and warnings about ARYSTA MARKETING on blogs and forums, from people who have been previously scammed by these people. I was not surprised, I’m just angrier. Now I know I need to do whatever I can to have this place shut down before they do this to someone else. So please, spread the word! ARYSTA MARKETING SCAMS PEOPLE!
