Eh-hum # 2

Finally, we can go on with our lives.

Today marks a historic event in Filipino politics: Incumbent President GMA will be inagurated as the 14th President of the Republic. Whew, that was a close one.

Her speech was alright. No movie script type lines here, just the basics and some, it was (just?) 20 minutes long and tackled 10 major concerns of the country today, with some supporting points, of course.

Part of it was her congratulating the other presidential aspirants for "fighting with conviction" at the 2004 Elections, then asking them to cooperate with her for the good of the nation (Eddie Gil included? Nah.). Fair enough, what else are they going to do. She finished it by challenging the Business sector, the Congress, the Youth and then herself to do good.

While the stateliness of today's events may leave us in awe, but reality bites. As Mr Amando Doronila said "the inauguration is the beginning of pain".

Uh-oh. No time to smell the (P 200,000.00 worth of) flowers, Madame. Now that your administration is legit, thanks to the right to suffrage, the people are now expecting results. On our part, us Pinoys will have to get back to work and get on with our lives.

Can someone please tell FPJ and his supporters to do the same as well?

Eh-hum # 1


Ehem...After months, and I do say months, of deciding whether or not to continue this project, I finally made up my mind. Embarrassing as it is to admit, it wasn't easy, especially for someone who's not much of a writer. I am not here to win awards (heheh), I am here just to express myself, which am not very good at also.

Here is the mother of all the issues: Will I be able to religiously update the HENYO BLOG?

Well, there's one way to find out. It's not going to be pretty, but I guess it will be worthwhile.
