The Baguio We Know

Baguio is in the Heart, Stomach and Liver

At the start of our classes in Grade IV, we were asked to write the obligatory essay, "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" and one of my classmates simply wrote, "I spent it in Baguio City because it is the Summer Capital of the Philippines." He was scolded but he was a hero in our hearts.
Baguio writers had to face this conundrum whenever they write about home. Variations to this theme would be, "How I Spent My Life Writing about the Summer Capital" or "How My Politicians Spent my Summer Capital" or as Luchie Maranan wrote in her monologue, "Baguio is the summer capital because it feels like summer all year round."
Members of the Baguio Writers Group re-wrote their "HISMSV" for "The Baguio We Know (Anvil Publishing)" which was launched last September 3 to a packed crowd at the National Bookstore in SM Baguio.
The 17 contributors ranged from Cecille Afable, younger than the city by 7 years, to 22-year-old Enrico Subido who wrote about a secret fishing pond in John Hay where he was transformed into Calvin sons Hobbes. Afable, who edits the Baguio Midland Courier, the oldest local weekly in the country, gives us recipes of Ibaloi dishes like pinoneg (blood sausages) and binga (farm snails) as cooked by her unschooled mother, Josefa Carino, but whose name now graces the oldest public elementary school here.
In writing about Baguio, these 17 writers seem to have located Baguio not only in their hearts but in their stomachs and livers as well. Baboo Mondonedo being a gourmand migrating to Baguio and discovering and loving highland food.
"My first classrooms were canaos. Here is where storytelling took place, where legends and family trees were passed on to the young," she wrote in "Food Lover's Story."
Dinggot Conde-Prieto charted a precise and funny Google Earth of our youth, from the long-lost bazaars, cafes and restaurants to the hidden bars with no stools where you get a half-shot of cheap gin just to warm you up.

“With the wings Baguio had given me. I test the winds of the world,” Dinggot bravely announced.

Padmapani Perez followed it up with her wonderful how-to, “Notes on the Self on Drinking.” Memorize this when you go up to Baguio to drink.

“Tell them how drinking in the thickness of Baguio fog lifts curtains, cements friendships, that drinking is the happy ending that we all seek after a long, hard day of honest work,” Perez wrote.

Martin Masadao wrote about his Lola Felicia's strawberry jam production where he and the other children watch the eternal stirring of the strawberry jam. It was during the actual cooking when things stopped stirring and the old women started telling stories to them about the war in the city. Masadao's tribute to her Lola is part of a unpublished book of essays about cooking and growing up in Baguio and Kalinga which he wrote on his PDA and now can not recover.
The poet Tita Lacambra-Ayala could be one of these women with war stories, having been raised in Baguio during the wartime. Wild sunflowers bloom in Ayala's essay as they hid the Japanese or gold ores and later becomes the artists' emblem when she came home decades later with son, Joey Ayala.

Included also is Merci Dulnuan's “Holy Wednesday Exercise and Reflection” to remind us that Baguio is not only a spirit center but a spiritual one.

Scott Saboy mused about cutting the only “pine” tree worth cutting – the concrete one at the top of Session Road.

Karla Delgado, an international magazine editor and now teaching literary nonfiction at Ateneo, does a Jim Halsema (the international AP editor who wrote about his alma mater, The Brent Book) by writing about her Special Education Class of 1979. She interviewed former classmates and parents about her public elementary years for the gifted.

Grace Subido, the book editor, wrote in Baguio Filipino, which like the city, is a mismash of many other languages. Hers is Filipino, Pangasinense, Ilocano and English with Ilonggo and Spanish. It couls be funny and vulgar to some but comprehensible to any Baguio resident.

“At kung tinatanong ako ngayon kung ano ang aking unang wika, ang sagot ko na lang ay “love” ...o “laughter” ---o “alcohol,” Subido wrote.

Arnold Azurin, who edited the 1991 Cordillera Ani issue for the Cultural Center of the Philippines which is a forerunner of this book, also wrote about drinking and dining with friends in the city interspersed with anthropological musings on the gold veins that runs through the city, Benguet cowboys and the American “dun ker” tribe.

Rolando Tolentino, the current dean of UP Mass Communications, makes it a point to come to Baguio during the sem break and realized he had a lot of baggage with him like the OFWs, call center industries and the ukay-ukay globalization.

Pia Arboleda and Candy Torres, in separate essays, talked about coming to live in Baguio because of love. One left reluctantly while the other one vowed to stay.

In the end, Baguio writers are like my elementary classmate, writing inwardly because the Baguio we know is the Baguio we have become.

Pacquiao Blog 5: Distractions

As if Miguel Cotto's left hook isn't haunting enough, Team Pacquiao is also fearing the whole world getting into the mind of Manny Pacquiao.
"There are too many distractions. Everybody wants a piece of Manny Pacquiao," Freddie Roach said.
One of the distractions is, of course, politics.
No one is allowed to speak about politics within the Shape Up Boxing Gym, at least within hearing distance of Roach.
Inside the gym area, Pacquiao would also rather not talk about his political career.
But during the courtesy visit to Baguio City Hall last Thursday, Pacquiao was mobbed by the City Hall media and the question about his political plan cropped up.
"I have decided to run in the next elections and I'm willing to leave boxing," he said in Filipino.
He did not say specifically what he is running for.
He, however, added that foremost on his mind is his November fight with Cotto for the welterweight crown in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"I have nothing else to prove," he said.
There is, however, the much vaunted fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. supposedly set for March to prove who is the real pound-for-pound champion.
March also is in the middle of the campaign period if Pacquiao is set to run.
And as early as now, Roach is already excited about the Mayweather fight.
"I have no problem fighting him. But if he thinks he's going to get equal money with, he's crazy," Roach said of Mayweather.
"We already have a perfect game plan," Roach said.
Adding to the heat is Pacquiao who also said that his defamation suit against Mayweather's father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., for saying that Pacquiao is using steroids, is being pursued.
"He has probably lost his mind," Pacquiao said of Mayweather Sr.
"He must have been embarrassed," he added, regarding the successive losses of his wards against Pacquiao.
Other than political distraction, Roach has closed the gym to the public and the media so that Pacquiao can concentrate on his training against Cotto.
Political talks and even the Mayweather fight may be cleared up when boxing promoter Bob Arum, founder and chairman of Top Rank, Inc., comes to Baguio on Thursday.

Pacquiao Blog 4: Hit and Run

Manny Pacquiao would have to do a hit-and-run in his fight against Miguel Cotto.
Freddie Roach said that they would have to rely on his prize ward's patented speed to fight the younger, heavier, taller and apparently stronger Puerto Rican Cotto, whose WBO welterweight crown Pacquiao is planning to grab on November 14.
"We have to make sure that he wouldn't be able to put both his feet on the ground and land his punches," Roach said.
Roach said that they are wary of Cotto's left hook, said to be his most dangerous punch in his arsenal.
Pacquiao is also firming up his torso so that his opponent's left hook to the body won't sting as much. He has added abs cruch as part of his regimen exercises at the Shape Up Boxing Arena here in Baguio where the Team Pacquiao is expected to stay for about six weeks.
Roach said that they are also devising ways to out-think Cotto.
"Cotto's got his great left hook and he's smart," Roach said.
Pacquiao also said that they would be training more for strategy rather than for his punches.
"I am a boxer. I already know my punches. I need strategy," Pacquiao said.
One strategy he and Roach thought of in fighting Cotto is to dictate the pace.
"We will try to set the pace and not let Cotto do it," Roach said.
Early Thursday morning, Pacquiao jogged at the Camp John Hay and caused a stampede when he and the Team Pacquiao made their courtesy call to Baguio Mayor Peter Rey Bautista.

Pacquiao Blog 3: Doing a Mayweather

Freddie Roach surely believed that Miguel Cotto will "do a Floyd Mayweather" and he has prepared his prize boxer, Manny Pacquiao, for that.
"I'm prepared for that possibility," Roach said about the Puerto Rican WBO welterweight champion going two pounds heavier than the required catchweight of 145 pounds when he fights against Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on November 14.
Mayweather Jr weighed 146 pounds instead of the agreed-upon 144 pounds when he pummelled Juan Manuel Marquez last Saturday.
Roach said that in the contract they had with Cotto, the Puerto Rican would not be heavily penalized financially if he went beyond the catchment weight.
Famous boxing analyst Frank Lotierzo, writing for, said that "emulating Mayweather" is the Puerto Rican's only realistic chance of beating Pacquiao.
Lotierzo acknowledged that Pacquiao could easily handle fighting boxers above his normal weight.
'The truth is Pacquiao has handled the move up in weight much better than Marquez. In fact Manny is one of the few fighters who’s carried his big punch into the higher divisions he's fought," Lotierzo said.
Mayweather paid Marquez $600,000 for weighing two pounds over the catchweight. Roach did not specify how much Cotto would pay if he would also emulate Mayweather.
"But that's no problem," Roach said. "I'm not worried."
"One or two pounds heavier, we are not worried. We have the best fighter here," he said.
Roach did not even remind the media gathered at the Shape Up Boxing Gym here at Cooyeesan Mall that the last time Pacquiao fought, his opponent was also two pounds heavier than Pacquiao during their weigh-in last May.
Ricky Hatton of Great Britain weighed in at 140-pounds, the catchweight for the light-welterweight division while Pacquiao weighed 138 pounds.
No matter, Pacquiao swiftily knocked out the Briton Hatton in only two rounds also at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
At this early, Pacquiao weighed in at 151 pounds and Roach said that the way he is training now, it would be an easy time for him to get to the proper weight.

Pacquiao Blog 2: Roach likes Baguio

Coach Freddie Roach arrived in Baguio and went straight to the gym to spar with Manny Pacquiao. "I just arrived in Baguio and haven't checked in my room yet," he said after sparring till the afternoon.
But Roach liked what he saw and intends to train here for five and a half weeks.
"The gym is beautiful. It's world class and very nice," he said.
The only problem is the altitude. "There's the altitude to play with. It's 2,000 meters above sea level and they're going to fight in Las Vegas," he said.
That meant that Pacquiao would have to go and train on sea level in the US two to two and a half weeks before the fight.
Roach also liked what he saw with Pacquiao. "If I didn't know any better. I would have said he was in the gym for a month now," Roach said. Roach arrived with nutritionist Alex Ariza.
Boxing king Manny Pacquiao is firming up his abdomen in preparation for his November 14 fight against Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto, who would be defending his WBO welterweight title in Las Vegas.
"Mahirap gawin ito pero kailangan. Body puncher si Cotto," Pacquiao said as he did his exercises to firm up his torso.
Among the new exercises prepared for Pacquiao for his trainers include ab cruches, cross-knee crunches and pull crunches. He also included hanging leg raises, lying leg raises and reverse crunches.
Pacquiao also asked his trainers to raise the boxing speed ball be adjusted to the height of Cotto, who at 5 foot 7 inches is a half-inch taller than him.
"My trainers and I have devised ways to fight him," said Pacquiao.
In his sparring rounds, assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez set up jab and counter jab routines to fight Cotto's body punches.
Pacquiao said sparring boxers which reportedly would included one from Puerto Rico and another from Mexico would be coming in the later days.
But outside the Shape Up Boxing gym, Pacquiao is back to his showbiz form.
In his early morning jog at the Sta. Lucia Golf Course below Naguilian Road, he even rode behind a motorbike.
He even exchanged jokes with the crowd who joined him.
One told him, "Kayang-kaya mo si Cotto!"
"Oo, may shampoo naman kami," Pacquiao said.
Pacquiao said that he is satisfied with the jogging route with its up-and-down topography and relatively secure surroundings.
Even as Cotto has already departed from his native Puerto Rico to the Tampa Fight Factory Gym in Tampa, Florida for his eight-week training, Pacquiao is staying put here in Baguio.
"I will go there in the US maybe three weeks before to acclimatize myself with the weather and the condition," he said.

As Usual in This Blog, It's the reactions that matter

It has been a very bad year for an uberrich branch of one of the country’s wealthiest clans.

The octogenarian mother had surgery in the upper spine and it caused her great pain. One of their daughters passed away of thyroid complications in June. The mother underwent another surgery in the lower spine earlier this month; she had two strokes while in the operating room. And just this morning, the son was found dead after the swimming competition of a Triathlon in the Lake of the CamSur Water Sports Complex in Camarines Sur.

Our deepest condolences…

For all the vaunted wealth of the family…

Truly, What is the Meaning of Life???

    ’twas said that prior to embalming,
    if the cadaver was stored in the freezer
    for a period of time
    it should be thawed properly

    Ashes to asses

    A RECENTLY widowed socialite did a most unusual, selfless act.

    The grieving widow not only sought a face-to-face meeting with her late husband’s mistress and, instead of the feared violent confrontation, even gave the other woman an urn containing the ashes of the man they had both shared.

    According to the grapevine, the mestiza wife only came to know of her husband’s secret passion after the man, who, like her, came from another de buena familia, suddenly passed away, leaving a number of incriminating text messages in his Blackberry unread and un-erased.

    After recovering from the initial shock, the wife, still a looker even in her early 50s, worked up enough courage to check out the mistress, a fading sex bomb, right in her Salcedo Village condominium.

    The sickening discovery of her husband’s double life was what apparently triggered a bizarre eulogy given by the wife during the necrological services, where one memorable line, as quoted by a banker, was “Don’t ask me if I am okay. That is an insensitive question.”

    Why do today’s women want to live the fantasy that any kind of love can beat testosterone’s need for younger flesh? In ancient Chinese custom when a wife turned 40 she had to bring a young girl into the household for her husband’s use, and replace her with others as the need arose. Painful, but that was facing the music and having a firm hand on damage control, the flow of any cash/goods to the mistresses and their own families, claims on the husband’s estate by kids out of wedlock, etc. Some of our own female forebears were known to ‘adopt’ their husbands’ ’street children’.

    Among the upper class a prenup gives some protection and consuelo. But a wife must pretend shock/pain at hubby’s affairs to play down her own flings. People would wonder otherwise.

Manny Pacquiao Blog 1

BAGUIO CITY -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. can have the pound-for-pound title.
Manny Pacquiao is unfazed about who is the pound-for-pound champion after Mayweather, the potential opponent of Pacquiao in March, handily beat Juan Manuel Marquez to submission Saturday night in Las Vegas.
"I'm not one who carries his bench on this," said Pacquiao after a grueling ten-round training at Shape Up Boxing at Cooyeesan Mall here.
Pacquiao said he is concentrating his energy instead on Cotto, whom he is scheduled to fight also in Las Vegas this October.
"I am concentrating my training on Cotto. I would have to hurdle him first," he said.
"He (Mayweather) can boast about being better because he has finished his job. I have still to finish mine," Pacquiao said in Filipino.
Pacquiao weighed in at 151 pounds during his first day of training here.
Monday morning. Pacquiao was welcomed by the jogging crowd of Baguio when he decided to jog around the Burnham Lake.
Later in the afternoon, he was the first to assess that he lacked timing.
"Instead of the 1-2-3 combination, I can only do 1-2," he said.
But he said that he liked his first impression on Baguio.
"In the US, I still have to drive to the gym. Here, I just go down from the hotel," he said.
"Baguio is high and cool. Here you can still see trees unlike in the US where all you see are cars. It relaxed me a bit," he said.
He did eight rounds of jabbing in the ring with assistant trainer Buboy Villanueva,
Villanueva said that Monday's regimen was three rounds of shadow boxing, eight rounds jabbing, two on the California ball and two on the speedball.
"I was impressed about the energy and speed of Pacquiao despite the long months of lay-off," he said.
Pacquiao and his crew were wearing a T-shirt which he said he designed himself: PAC MAN KNOWS in bold lettering with his Jack Russell terrier dog, Pacquiao inside the "P." "Knows" is his joke on himself for always saying, "You Know."
Freddie Roach is expected to arrive in Baguio today (Tuesday).
"I think he will like it here. This is comparable to what we have in the US," Pacquiao said.
Former Ilocos Sur Gov. Luis "Chavit" Singson, said to be Pacquiao's manager, was also around to help Pacquiao familiarize himself.
Chavit said that Pacquiao might stay here in Baguio from two to five weeks before going to Las Vegas.
He also said that Pacquiao will have an easy time training here because of the proximity of the gym to his hotel room.

Innovation: it's the ultimate source of advantage, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the economic ring. Innovation is what every organization should be ruthlessly pursuing, right? Wrong.

I'd like to advance a hypothesis: awesomeness is the new innovation. And so it begins: The Awesomeness Manifesto

Tallest? A Lesson in Journalism 101

Ijaz Ahmed (below) came to the Philippines and stayed in Baguio for a while, supposedly to have his foot cured. There were claims that he was the tallest man in the world, then the 2nd tallest man. Then finally the tallest man in Pakistan. There were many reports in the Philippines about him but did anyone bother to measure him? There were claims he was 9 feet tall! Then 8 foot 4. In fact, most newspapers in the Philippines were consistent on the 8'4" figure. So what is this 8'1" man doing in the newspapers, claiming to be the tallest when Ahmed should be three inches taller? He is still not dead, isn't he. A mere look at the latest Guinness Book should have spared us all the problems and embarassment.
