August 3

President Gloria Arroyo finally acknowledged my legacy. She declared tomorrow, August 3, a special holiday for college and high school students. Yeah, she knows it’s my birthday. That the students need to register as voters Friday is just an excuse.
Pero no love lost. We are just having less rains as we want and then here's the banner headline of Philippine Star:

GMA eyes emergency powers

President Arroyo is ready to ask Congress to grant her emergency powers to enable the government to immediately address the effects of the dry spell on the economy if the drought worsens.

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said in the meantime, the government has mobilized nearly all agencies for the implementation of various measures to mitigate the effects of the drought as well as other actions to minimize the use of water and power.

“As the situation warrants, I’m very sure that there’s nothing that would prevent us from asking Congress for emergency powers,” Ermita said, adding the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) is closely monitoring the situation.


How bilis naman ni Lola to jump into the situation. Hay naku, Napoleona talaga. I'm past loathing. It's my birthday. Peace. I will be in San Fabian Resort. No email until Saturday. But it will be no Fortress of Solitude. I will be lecturing Beneco officials on how to write power features. Expect love stories behind your electric bills.

Happy birthday Frankie!!! Iinom mo na lang ako ng isang dosenang Cerveza Negra. Just remember (especially since I think I know where and with whom you may be celebrating), beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. Salud!
