Would it be Manny Villar?

He is the standard bearer of the Nacionalista Party. He filed his certificate of candidacy for president on November 30, 2009, along with his running mate, Senator Loren Legarda.
His popular campaign line is "Sipag at Tyaga" (Hardwork and Patience). Villar's campaign platform includes combating poverty and corruption, two major problems between which he believes there is a strong link.

Would it be Noynoy Aquino?

A graduate of Ateneo de Manila University, he was wounded by rebel soldiers in a failed coup attempt during his mother's presidency. In 1998, he was elected to the House of Representatives as Representative of the 2nd district of Tarlac province in the 11th Congress of the Philippines.

On September 9, 2009, 40 days after the death of his mother, Aquino officially announced his bid for the Presidency in a press conference at the Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan City, which also served as the site of his mother's Presidential Inauguration in February 1986.
Aquino's campaign platform includes a promise to fight corruption and poverty as well as investing in public health and education.

In 2007, like Benigno Aquino, he was sentenced by a "special court" to reclusion perpetua for "alleged" plunder, but was later granted pardon by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was the main benefactor of the power grab that ousted President Estrada.
On October 22, 2009, former President Joseph Estrada announced that he would run again for president with Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay as his running mate.
His 2010 Senatorial lineup includes: Francisco Tatad, Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada, Joey de Venecia, JV Bautista and Ompong Plaza.

He finished his Bachelor of Arts in Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is considered as one of the most orthodox Catholic Universities in the United States
The boldest statement he has made for good governance is the filing of numerous cases before the Ombudsman against high ranking government officials where he himself is complainant. This is in line with his political policy of alleviating the people’s suffering by addressing the problem of expensive and increasing costs of basic needs like water, electricity, medicines, health care, etc., and insuring that these basic services are kept free and far from graft and corruption.

Gambling Online!

My dad used to go to casino with his friends and I just can’t imagine that they’re losing thousands of money just for a single game. My dad love’s poker while my uncle is a big fan of Slot machine games. Anyway, I am still wondering what makes them to become too addicted in such games. As what they said, you’ll never know unless you try it, right? However, I will not try to play it in the real life casino, how I wish I can afford it and how I wish I can manage to deal with those guys (casino players). Good thing there are now what so-called “Online gambling” or “online Casino”. It is actually the same thing and the only difference is that it is done online. The intense and the thrills are still there and you can feel that you are playing the actual casino games. Maybe I’ll try to encourage my dad to try playing casino online and I am so sure that he will enjoy it!

Are We Ready For the Upcoming 2010 Automated Election?

This is my first time to vote and i am really excited because this is also the first time that Philippine will have a what so-called Automated election. But are we really ready enough for this modern way of voting? Actually, i am excited for this election but along with this excitement is fear. A fear that this election will fail. How assure are we with this automated voting machines? Well, i know ARMM tried it already and it works well but then again we are not just talking about a small region here, it's nationwide! If the manual system didn't satisfied us with the results, what's more with this computer programmed voting system? just like what they say "you will never know unless you try it" so maybe we can give this a try. Actually this is a great step to get ourselves on the flow of the modern world. let's just pray that this election will be a success and may the president-to-be will be a good leader and not corrupt.
