Six RP-occupied islands covered in controversial Spratlys deals


By VERA Files*

Six islands occupied by the Philippines in the disputed Spratly Islands Groups are covered by two controversial joint seismic monitoring agreements among the Philippines, China and Vietnam that have come under fire for purportedly “sacrificing” Philippine interests in exchange for huge loans from Beijing.

Based on coordinates provided in the annex to both agreements, the agreement area includes Patag (Flat), Lawak (Nanshan), Parola (Northeast Cay), Panata (Lankiam Cay), Kota (Loaita) and Likas (West York) islands occupied by the Philippine military.

The agreement also covers 24,000 square kilometres of undisputed Philippine territory.
The area’s easternmost edge is around 25 kilometers from the southern tip of Palawan. At its northern boundary, the area abuts the Malampaya oil field and includes an area the Philippines had long awarded to a British company for oil exploration.

Of the total 142,886 kilometers, around 24,000 square kilometers clearly belong to the Philippines and fall outside the areas in the Spratlys which are claimed either in whole or in part by the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Indonesia and Brunei.

The area also swallows almost 80 percent of the Kalayaan Group which the Philippines claims.
The Spratly island itself, which serves as the island group’s main reference point, is at the westernmost area covered by the agreement and about 700 kilometers from Palawan.

The 142,886-square-kilometer study area also covers Itu Aba, the largest island in the disputed group of islands and the only one claimed and held by Taiwan, a non-signatory to the 2004 agreement.

Known as Tai Ping Island to Taipei, Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian inaugurated Feb. 3 a 1,150-meter-long runway on the island, drawing protests from Philippine officials who called the visit “unfortunate” and “lamentable.”

Taiwan, one of the six claimants to the oil-rich group of islands in the South China Sea, has not officially reacted to the bilateral agreement between Beijing and Manila, and the tripartite agreement the two countries subsequently entered into with Hanoi since these deals recently got into the limelight. The Arroyo administration has come under fire amid allegations it received huge loans extended by China, including the corruption-tainted National Broadband Network project, after cutting the deals.

The Joint Marine Seismic Undertaking signed on Sept. 1, 2004 between Philippine National Oil Co. and China National Offshore in Beijing during the state visit of President Arroyo was expanded six months later to include Petro Vietnam.

The Spratlys are being claimed wholly or in part by the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan and Brunei. The more or less 160 islands are claimed wholly both by China and Taiwan. Vietnam occupies 25 islands; China, nine; the Philippines, eight; Malaysia, three, and Taiwan, one. Brunei has established a fishing zone that overlaps a southern reef.

Under the agreements, Sonca (Sand Cay) and Nam Yit Islands, and Collins and Da Nu Thui (Petley) Reefs claimed by Vietnam are covered by the pre-exploration study area.

So are the reefs claimed by China: Landsowne (Da Len Dao), Yong Shu Jian (Fiery Cross), Nan Xun Jiao (Gaven), Kennan and Subi.

Sinh Cow, the main site of clashes between Chinese and Vietnamese troops in the past, is also in the agreement area.

Retired Commodore Rex Robles, who was part of the team that prepared the 1960’s handbook on the 53-islets in the South China Sea being claimed by the Philippines, said in an interview that a “militarily weak” Philippines initiated the regime of cooperation among the six claimants to deter Chinese aggression.

By entering into the bilateral agreement with China, Robles said, the Philippines “undercut our own initiative to talk to China as a group.”

He added, “To the add to the offense, we allowed China to have access for study purposes to other islands without permission by the other claimants.”

Robles said the Philippines, by entering into the agreement with China, has likewise taken Beijing’s side in its sovereignty dispute with Taiwan.

The Philippines maintains a “One-China Policy” and recognizes Beijing as representing the Chinese people. But the Philippines maintains economic and cultural relations with Taiwan, which hosts some 160,000 Filipino workers.

The Joint Marine Seismic Undertaking is a three-year agreement for the Philippines, China and Vietnam to undertake a seismic study “to gather and process data on stratigraphy, tectonics and structural fabric of the subsurface of the area.”

The agreement states that China and the Philippines had held “pre-exploration activity” with “a view of engaging in a joint research of petroleum resource potential of certain areas of the South China Sea.”

Sources at the Department of Foreign Affairs said the original agreement, which was pushed aggressively by then Speaker Jose de Venecia, stipulated “exploration.”

But then Acting Justice Secretary and now Ombudsperson Merceditas Gutierrez objected, warning that it would be unconstitutional.

The Constitution provides that “the exploration, development, and utilization of natural resources shall be under the full control and supervision of the State.”

Gutierrez dropped her objection when at the last minute, the word “exploration” was deleted and replaced with “seismic study,” DFA sources said.

Robles said a seismic study is done only when the agencies involved have previously gathered data that pinpointed where they would drill. “That means they are already in the last stage of their undertaking,” he said.

Opposition senators Panfilo Lacson, Antonio Trillanes IV and Jamby Madrigal have sought an inquiry into the agreements which, they said, is tantamount to treason.

Paranaque Rep. Roilo Golez has also called for an investigation at the House of Representatives to make sure that the agreements do not place national interest “in jeopardy.”

Lacson and other opposition leaders cited reports that the Spratlys deal was tied to the $8 billion projects to be financed with loans from China, including North Rail, South Rail, National Broadband Network and Cyber-Education deals.

De Venecia has denied any connection between the agreements and the release of Chinese loans to the Philippines. He reiterated the deals were designed to turn “an area of potential conflict into a zone of peace and development.”

Foreign Secretary Alberto Romulo, on the other hand, has said the agreements with China and Vietnam are not only consistent with the Philippine Constitution and the 2002 ASEAN-China Declaration on the Conduct of parties on the South China Sea but also “manifest responsible diplomacy to ease tension and promote confidence building in a region where, as noted in the article, the issue of sovereignty of the Spratly islands remains a potential ‘flashpoint.'” Yvonne Chua and Ellen Tordesillas

    What else will Gloria prostitute to China ?! It seems that the only country willing to make Gloria bastos is China. There are no takers for Gloria. Will somebody please throw Gloria & the Pidals to a shark-infested place ?


    I just have to share this one..this just cuts the cake. Gloria has urged “..Myanmar to accept UN poll observers”. Gloria said that, “A central pillar of democracy is a free and fair election. Outside observers are not a threat to any nation’s sovereignty. Rather, the participation of outside election observers is a sign of strength. These observers help show the world the credibility of the election process itself as we had long done in the Philippines”. The gall of an illegitimate president to say this ! Some nerve ! I’m sure Myanmar would just give her the dirty finger & tell her to “Back Off !” Here’s the link to the story:

    O ano naman ito? Maghahanap na naman ng butas para mapa alis si GMA sa pwesto at maghasik ng kaguluhan sa pilipinas…pathetic. Bakit ba hindi kayo mag report ng mga balita na magdudulot ng kaginhawaaan sa mga mahihirap? Mga paraan para malampasan ang gutom o di kaya mga paraan kung paano mag karoon ng hanap buhay? C’mon, be constructive, not destructive.

    “For truth and Justice daw” – are you kidding me? Ako for truth and justice din pero hindi ako nag rereport o gumagawa ng kwento base sa aking inis para lang ipahiya ang gobyerno. Halatang halata naman na inis na inis ang mga journalistang ito? How can you trust them when all you can see is hatred painted within each of their article? Saan ang truth and justice dyan? Can we perhaps agree without doubt that their reports are fair and unbiased? What the heck?

    Grabe talaga ang mga journalistang ito…I would recommend creating a program (ipa -outsource nyo kung kinakailangan) that would automatically generate/fabricate reports maligning each and every government deals, projects and affairs. Nang sa gayon hindi na kayo mahirapan pag gawa. Costumized para input mo nalang yung mga pangalan ng involve and constant ang appearance ng mga words such as GMA, Firt Gentleman Mike Arroyo, at resign. Di ba? convenient? Forget about the decency and accuracy of the generated result, hindi na naman uso yan sa mga mahal nating journalistas.

    Common sense dictates that no one or any party could enter into an agreement on something they do not have ownership. How can my neighbor and I enter into an agreement to work on a land or lot that’s not owned by either one of us? In the case of the Spratlys, the only areas that can be agreed upon are the areas both or one of the parties have physical presence. That means the six RP occupied islands in effect could have some legal color; but that’s against our constitution and sovereignty. If China and RP agreed on islands that belong to all claimants, this is a lesser crime compared to entering into agreement on islands already occupied by RP.

    Re:Maghahanap na naman ng butas para mapa alis si GMA sa pwesto

    Kung sakaling nag-Judas si Gloria Arroyo sa taumbayan hindi lang siya mapa-alis sa puwesto baka bitay pa.

    Journalists report based on facts and validated information. It’s up to the readers if they believe what are printed in daily news, radio-TV broadcast and the internet. Well, if you don’t believe or agree with them, then, you do your own fact finding research. I borrow from FOX News slogan, We Report You Decide

  11. andres - March 10, 2008 12:48 am

    Its not only media who is against the Evil Bitch and Mr. Jose Pidal, its the nuns, priests, youth, businessmen, masa, etc…

    You cannot do anything about it anymore, its irreversible!

    Buti pa tumabi na ang mga tigasuporta ni GMA at baka malunod pa sa tsunami!

    GMA and Mike, went overboard already, they deserve this, and they have to pay for their crimes to the Filipino people!

    hi everyone

    please allow me to be Anonymous mala pusa kasi yung galamay ni gloria for my own security narin. isa rin ako sa mga Blogswarms 🙂

    may alam kasi ako, gusto ko lang ilantad ito sa masa

    nung senate inquiry ni jun lozada…

    ang ombudsman pinatawag si FG for a hearing tapos si FG sabi di sya maka appear for health reasons, diba?

    si FG na yung next na senate inquiry pero inunahan ni Merceditas… kasi hindi pwedeng sabay imbetigahan si FG nang senate & ombudsman

    merceditas = ombudsman

    so hawak na ni ombudsman si FG at hindi si senator cayetano, et al

    so what’s the catch?

    tado mga yan. mga kawatan talaga.

    kaya inunahan ni merceditas, para hindi ma senate inquiry si FG

    to protect FG. pero akala nang taong bayan, the ombudsman was just doing her job

    pinapatagal nila. buying time…

    it was a political manuever ni merceditas to protect her boss

    sabi ng mga lawyers na kilala ko ginagamit ang talino sa kabalastugan

    mga lawyers lang can see thru this kasi alam nila pano ang takbo nang batas

    magkano kaya binayad kay merceditas para gawin nya mga bagay na eto ano?

    PLEASE REPOST my comments para malaman ng taong bayan yung kabulastugan ng ombudsman

    akala nang taong bayan, the ombudsman was just doing her job

    kaibigan, kung sila nga, hindi nila ma prove ang ilang milyong kasinungalingang finabricate nila due to lack of evidence, why would I bother to prove mine, I am just being fair and enjoying the ride of the bandwagon.eto uso ngayun di ba? pinauso ng media at oposisyon?.

  16. bitchevil - March 10, 2008 1:11 am

    anonymousorg, good point. FG Mike Arroyo always use his health as an excuse to avoid being called to testify; but why was he able to appear at the Ombudsman hearing? Is it because the Ombudsman is under his control while the Senate is not? And it’s amazing to see someone who has a heart problem making frequent travels abroad. Traveling even if you’re using the First Class seat could be stressful. Mike Arroyo can freely move around the country and abroad; but cannot attend the Senate hearing….Unbelievable!

  17. duren - March 10, 2008 1:11 am

    Opps…time for bed. Adios amigos…keep the faith burning. At hopefully, bukas mauntog ang ulo ng marami nating kababayan at matauhan na hindi lahat ng nasa media ay katotohanan. Ciao!

    P.S. Just an observation, bakit kaya parang kumukunte ang mga active sa blog ni Ms. Ellen? Baka naumay na sila sa sobrang pambabatikos at kasinungalingan na binabato sa gobyerno, nakakasawa din pala..o baka naman natauhan na.

    luli, is that you?

    sana mauntog rin ang lahat na nag mamaangmaangan na hindi corrupt to the bones and pamilyang arroyo. get real, my dear. ikaw na lang ata ang di naniniwala. again, luli, is that you? harhar.

  20. bitchevil - March 10, 2008 2:45 am

    It’s normal for any son or daughter to come to his or her parents’ defense. If this Duren is Luli, Gloria’s daughter, then we also welcome her here. At least, she gets to read how much we as a people hate her parents. We hate them not because of anything but the corruption that has become the trade mark of the family. For almost eight years, not once but hundreds of times was the Arroyo’s family name involved. And of course for every crime they did came with immediate denial. The usual challenge was: Prove it. File it in court. Well, how can people succeed in prosecuting them if all the resources and power are used to prevent testimonies and people from knowing the truth? To Duren or Luli, if you really love your parents, you must honestly advise them to stop. Ask your mom to resign once and for all. People have had enough of her. We know you care about the country. Among the siblings, you seem to be free from accusation unlike your two other brothers. Make a difference, Luli. You may still be able to save your family’s name and eventually save this country from further sufferings.

  21. duren - March 10, 2008 2:48 am

    harhar, kakaawa ka naman hija isa kang biktima ng media. harhar. Oo ako si luli, isang taong magtatanggol sa magulang at isang taong nagtimpi sa sobrang kasinumgalingan na kinakalat tungkol sa aking ina. Maniwala man kayo o sa hindi, ako si Luli, at hindi ko iyon ikinakahiya. Baka kayo ang kailangang gumising na hindi kayo kasing dami gaya ng iniisip ninyo. Ay sus.. harhar..yours truly Luli, harhar

  22. duren - March 10, 2008 2:58 am

    OO nga, the nerve of this EVIL woman to admonish Myanmar on what to do when she CAN’T even do anything good in her own country!

    Aside from the “dirty finger” with “BACK OFF!” statement, she might also be advised by Myanmar to go home and RESIGN or BE OUSTED!

    Ops may dagagng nakapasok!

    Kapag humahanap ng ebidensiya, nawawala! The ZTE contract disappeared after its signing! Kaya Duren kung ebidensiya ang hinahaanap mo, magaling kayong magtago nun! The Evil Bitch and her cronies know how to hide all the documents. Kapag quetionable na transaction, bigla na lang nawawala ang kontrata o ang mga witness. Kung umaabot naman sa korte ang kaso, bayad naman ang mga hukom(mostly with a juicier post). Ang tanging opposition na lang ay ang Senado. The supreme court, with the incoming appointment of two justices, this year and next year will definitely be the Evil Bitches’ turf. Tongress had been, is and will be always her kingdom!

  27. masha - March 10, 2008 3:48 am

    duren, you’re the best. man, oh man. you’ve just redefined name-calling as literal name-calling. duren is luli. wow. english classes will never be the same again. you’re a god.

    ah eh by the way, kala ko tutulog ka na?

  28. assumptionista - March 10, 2008 4:30 am

    What was that all about? I agree with you parasabayan, evidence? di ba pag may evidence nawawala ang “contract” tulad ng zte-nbn, pag may witness naman nag to “tour” around the world (eg. Joc-joc nagpunta usa, garci nagpunta singapore, lozada nagpunta hongkong, o kaya witness biglang na rescue -udong!!!, pag government official meron eo463 at mc108).

    This government has already set a pattern of lies and deceits. The nerve of GMA discussing about democracy and free election!!


  29. parasabayan - March 10, 2008 4:34 am

    Nagpuputak na naamn si Gunggongsalez na hindi daw oil exloration ang pakay ng joint studies na ito. Eh ano? Studies ng fish species? O kaya naman eh feasibility studies ng pagpapatayo ng resorts?

    Baka bukas makalawa eh annexed na tayo sa China. The Evil Bitch has parceled off our patrimonies to China para lang marami siyang makukurakot!

    The death penanlty should be restored so she and her husband will suffer death as saddam hussein if indeed they have violated our laws! Masyadong malambot ang parusa kay Erap. The Evil Bitch did that so the next regime will probably be kinder to her. Until we deal with our leaders harshly, corruption will simply be a way of life of all our leaders to our detriment. We were kind to Marcos too! Hanggang ngayon si Imelda ay pasayaw sayaw pa. Erap was only on house arrest sa kanyang resort pa! Now pardoned pa! At mukhang gusto pang maging presidente ulit! Pos Diyos por santo. Tama na! Pwede ba? Let us get rid of all our rotten elected officials! We have to punish them harshly if they wasted our people and our resources!

    one of the problem of evil-doers and defenders of evil-doers … they take too long and too much of whatever they need to go to quiet their conscience until sleep arrives.

    i think one of the first publication to report on this Spratly Seismic Monitoring story was the Far East Economic Review ; a Hongkong-based Business magazine.

  31. Ellen - March 10, 2008 6:14 am

    Bayonic, please read this:

    Take note of the date of the publication of the articles. I’m happy that the issue has been revived. It simply proves that truth will come, even though how one tries to hide it.

  32. AdeBrux - March 10, 2008 7:08 am

    And while Gloria is selling off Philippine territory piece by piece, the Armed Forces is cowed by Esperon into submitting to the evil desiderata of this moral pygmie!

    The AFP forces are titular and constitutional armed guardians and protectors of Philippine sovereignity — where and what are they doing now? This is when they should all stand up in unison to protect the Philippines even if it means toppling Macapagal.

    Nothing less is expected of them!

    Rise AFP, rise!

    Luli(duren)? Nagpalit ka na naman ng anyo? Anyway, nice to see you again here. If I were you, mag-join ka nalang sa mga protesta sa mga pro-gloria rally. They badly need your attendance. It’s pathetic. I’m very sure you’re not bayaran like most of the evil-supporting rallyists. I’ll respect that from you.
    I agree, Myanmar should tell that evil-bitch to back off. One thing I hate most is a consistent hypocrite. She has no credibility at all. Hoy aling gloria, let some other country with more integrity say that to Myanmar, not you! Ang kapal mo rin ano?!

    Juan Pogi: Mr. Ermita, where’s the Contract on Spratlys Joint Seismic Exploration with China & Vietnam, pwede po bang basahin?

    Mr. Ermitanyo: No, dehins pwede, kasi may non-disclosure agreement kami. But i can assure you, there’s nothing anomalous there.

    Mr. Gunggongzales: It’s not violative of the constitution. It’s a contract between two private parties.

    Juan Pogi: Ah, Iba na pala ngayon. Di na saklaw ang mga private entities sa ilalim ng ating Constitution. Sige, ibenta ko na rin ‘yung Isla ng Camotes, puro batu-bato na kasi yun, eh. Nahihirapan na ang mga kamote.

This year, the follow up is numerous. Nothing yet. My own arrears was held up by decades. So you see, many of us are suffering while propagandas of people feeling the economic progress fill the TV channels. Lies, lies, lies. I feel the pinch. Traffic nga at both ends of my block is getting worse. Patayan all around me. Nasaan ang mga pulis, nasa Malacanan at rallies. So far wala pa naman panalo ang mga military. Parating dehado. Ang ginhawa ay nasa matataas lamang kaya ito, sila ang nakikita. Kaya nila ang bili ng bigas kahit presyo tumataas. Mabuti pa nga maging damn communista.

    Are we sure this Duren is Luli, Gloria’s one and only daughter? If she is, let her remain here. Let’s see how she’s able to deal with all the attacks against her corrupt and evil parents. Instead of despising her, we should take pity on this girl. She’s trying so hard to defend the criminals. She’s just doing her duty as a daughter. But I have a wish for her: If her parents finally go to hell, she can go with them!

    Ano po ba ang pinag-ka-iba ng bansang Tsina at Russia sa US? Hindi po ba, kapwa sila nagtatago sa maskara ng “sosyalismo’t nasyonalismo”, at pagkatapos na makibaka at makamit nila (tsina/russia) ang pambansang paglaya’y iniwawagayway nito ang pagbabagong-uri at pagiging lantarang imperyalistang bansa.

    Wala naman pong pinag-ka-iba ang Tsina sa US, kapwa sila’y imperyalistang bansa sa kasalukuyang panahon ng “globalisasyon”. Kung ang bansang Tsina ay isang komunistang bansa na may respeto sa kapwa-tao, bakit sila’y nakikipag-kutsaba sa iilang ganid na Pilipino (hal. ang maanomalyang ZTE/NBN Deal) sa ngalan ng mga “kontratang di-maka-tao”? Isang katotohanan, na ang bansang Tsina ay progresibo, mula sa kanilang angking yamang-lakas-paggawa, kaya’t nagkalat ang kanilang mumurahing produkto. Bagay na, sa komparatibong pagtatasa, ang kabansaan ng Pilipinas ay mayroong produktong inilalako at ito’y nagkalat sa iba’t-ibang panig ng daigdig – ang mahigit-kumulang na “10M OFW”. Karagdagan nito’y, kapag ang isang “intsik” ay nag-maygreyt sa ibang bansa, sila ay nagiging matagumpay na negosyante, samantalang ang isang Pilipinong nag-nanais na mag-maygreyt ay tiyakan na magiging “atsay” sa katagang “bagong-bayani”. Hay naku po, talagang masarap maging Pilipino, sa hirap at ginhawa! ipinagmamalaki po natin sa buong mundo na tayo’y mga ganap na Pilipino!

    Ang pagiging Atista o isang Katoliko ay hindi sagka para sa pagsusulong at pagsasakamit ng pagbabago’t pag-unlad, at lalong hindi batayan ang anumang “ismo”, datapuwa’t ako po ay nananalig at sumasaludo sa ating mga kapatid na Pilipinong Komunista. Nawa’y magkaroon ng isang tunay at ganap na pagkakaisa ang lahat ng progresibong kilusan, maging armado man o di-armado at hindi lamang po dapat na naka-tuon sa pagpapatalsik sa rehimeng “Tsina-Gloria-US”, bagkus po ay dapat na wakasan na! at i-waksi ng bawat Pilipino ang “kulturang-kataksilan”. Nawa’y hindi lang po sa harapan ng US Embassy magsagawa ng rali, nararapat din po na magsagawa ng “kahit man lang na maliit na rali sa harapan ng Embahada ng Tsina, upang kondenahin ang kanilang pakikipag-kutsaba sa iilang ganid na Pilipino”.

    Muli’t muli ko po itong ihahatag, na – “ang primari sanhi ng kahirapan ng ating bansa ay yaong “kulturang kataksilan” ng mga Pilipino! At ang sekondaryong sanhi ng kahirapan ay yaong di-lantad na pagkontrol ng dayuhan. Matagal nang nakiki-alam ang ang “imperyalismong tsina” sa ating kabansaan, datapuwa’t ngayon lamang po ito naging lantad nang mabulgar ang pakikipag-laro at pakikipag-kutsaba ni Gloria sa dambulahang bansang Tsina sa ngalan ng “pautang” at ang kapalit ay yaong isla ng spratly, ang lahat ng iyan ay nang dahil sa pagsingaw ng maanomalyang NBN/ZTE Deal. Kaya’t dapat na tutulan ang anumang uri ng imperyalismo, maging ito’y US o Tsina.”

    Ipagpatuloy ang Dakilang Rebolusyong 1896… Itatag ang Transisyonal Rebolusyonaryong Gobyerno!

    Ibigay ang Para sa Diyos at ibigay ang Para sa Bayan!

    God Bless po sa inyong lahat!

    Behind every fortune is a crime. Ang US ay di catholic. At mali si Rizal. Sana pinaglaban ni Rizal na totally masugpo ang catholisismo na dala ng mga kastila. Umanib pa siya sa bandang huli. Talo tuloy and dakilang rebolusyon. Umusbong ang mga pseudo kastilaloy kuno na nagkakuwarta pa sa NBN/ZTE deal at iba pa.

    Our National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal was very much disliked by the Catholic Church and vice versa partly because he was a Mason.
    Freemasonry is anti-Catholic and vice versa.

    The AFP forces are titular and constitutional armed guardians and protectors of Philippine sovereignity — where and what are they doing now?

    I think they are traffic enforcer now sila ata ang papalit sa MMDA. Pano sila lalaban sa China, ang mga sundalo natin kulang sa gamit, Eroplano nila iilan na lang ang lumilipad noong panahon pa ng lolo ko ginagamit, mga helicopters natin mga pinaglumaan ng kano puro naman bumabagsak pambayad nila sa pagtira sa ating bansa. mga baril na gamit kinakalawang samantalang yong mga kalaban kumpleto sa mga gamit. umaasa na lang tayo sa mga balikatan. navy naman ilan ang mga barko natin? meron ba tayong submarine? wala. Kaya wala tayong kalaban laban sa ibang bansa kung sakaling lusubin tayo. Pinag-trainning natin ang ating mga sundalo para ipaglaban tayo hindi para maging traffic enforcer. Magkano kaya ang kickback in Espewrong?

    Hindi fabricated ang mga balita tungkol sa Spratlys issue na ito. This is backed by documents and factual evidence. Same with the ZTE-NBN deal.

    Open your eyes, hinuhuthutan na nga tayo ng gobyernong ito, eh nagtatanga-tangahan ka pa diyan.

    My entree above should be addressed to Petite. Sorry wrong number, Chi. That was a poor result of my speed reading.

    Rizal had a crush on his own cousin who was a love child of a priest. Heart broken, he sailed away and sought out girls at every progressive port not necessarily catholics.

    freemasonry is not anti catholic but probably the catholic church is unhappy with freemasons. freemasonry is not a religious movement but believe in a divinge being.

    oopps : divine being- sorry.

    What’s your mother’s name? How far East have you gone?

  55. bitchevil - March 12, 2008 11:32 pm

    Norpil, with you, I will either letter it or syllable it.
