Jessica Sanchez will sing for Obama at Democratic Convention

 Jessica Sanchez will sing for US President Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time), the “American Idol” Season 11 runner-up confirmed on her Twitter account.
“I might not be old enough to vote, but I’m so honored and excited to perform at @Barack Obama’s big party in Charlotte next week #DNC2012,” Jessica, who turned 17 last month, tweeted over the weekend.
The Filipino-Mexican-American from Chula Vista, California will perform at the Time Warner Cable Arena on the second night of the convention, where Obama is expected to be nominated as the Democratic Party’s Presidential bet in the US elections in November.
Jessica will perform on the same night as saxophonist Branford Marsalis and DJ Cassidy.

Her appearance at the Democratic convention is sandwiched between tour dates in Syracuse, New York (September 4) and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania (September 6).

Rufa Mae Quinto and Boy 2 Quizon split up

Rufa Mae Quinto misses being in love.
It has been almost two months since news of her breakup with longtime sweetheart Boy2 Quizon became public — a big surprise since they announced only a few months earlier that they would be tying the knot this coming December.
“Alam nyo, wala naman talagang hiwalayang naganap, hindi lang talaga nagkatuluyan,” Rufa Mae said during the recent press conference for updated developments in TV5’s eco-fantasya series, “Enchanted Garden” where she is one of the lead stars.
Rufa Mae added that their supposed 12-12-12 wedding date this year was actually a joke by Boy2 meant to promote his upcoming film with Richard Gutierrez and to be directed by Peque Gallaga.
She admitted, however, that she has not totally severed her ties with Boy 2 and insisted that they have remained friends and business partners. When asked about the long-awaited movie that they’re both starring and producing, Rufa Mae said that the project has been shelved not because of their recent breakup but only because it’s more suitable for summer.
“As far as kaming dalawa, okay naman kami kahit hindi pa kami nagkikita lately,” admitted the 34-year old actress. “Pero for now puro trabaho lang muna ako at yung focus ko, nasa ‘Enchanted Garden’ lang muna.”
She is excited about the fact that her character, Diwani Quassia will soon revert back to her original “diwata” form after she was transformed into a rabbit for helping her sister Diwani Alvera escape.
“Sabagay, kahit naman as a rabbit, nakikita at naririnig nyo pa naman ako,” she said. “But it would be great to be back in costume.”
Other than that, the actress, who is also known to be the breadwinner in their family and has in fact sent siblings to school and has financially covered the medical needs of her dad and grandmother, is also appearing in Unitel Productions’ adaptation of “Mga Kuwento Ni Lola Basyang,” an entry to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
She also said she still enjoys being a part of the long-running gag show “Bubble Gang” where she has been a cast member for 12 of her 18 years in show business.
“Imagine, 18 years na pala ako sa showbiz pero bida pa rin ako at hindi nawawalan ng work, I feel so blessed,” she enthused. “Now I’m also helping other people through a charitable foundation.”
While her career wish list also includes producing movies that she may or may not star in as well as hopefully hosting her own morning show, leaving “Bubble Gang” is not part of her future plans.
“Ayokong magkahiwalay pa kami nina Bitoy (Michael V). Para sa kin, walang reason para iwanan ko ang show,” she exclaimed.
And yes, that’s where she met Boy2 as well. “Siya ang best friend ko sa lahat ng mga lalake dun,” she confessed. “Sa kanya nga ako nagsusumbong pag may problema ako sa ibang guys.”
And even though their announced wedding was just a joke, she and Boy2 did take their relationship very seriously and they did consider settling down.
“Pero di natuloy eh,” she sighed. “Alam n’yo, bago mo talaga makilala ang isang tao, kailangang makasama mo siya ng matagal.”
Even as she’s excited about the many good things that are happening in her career and acknowledged that yes, she has forgotten about being in love “for a while,” Rufa Mae is also not denying that she’s beginning to miss that wonderful feeling.
“Pero alam ko, slowly, darating din naman ‘yun.”
As she awaits the next guy who will sweep her off her feet, the seasoned comedienne said she is not totally closing her doors on Boy 2, hinting that a reconciliation, while remote at this time, remains a possibility.
“But right now, he needs to focus on his career first. Ang dami pa niyang gagawin at ganun din naman ako,” she noted.

Bianca Manalo moves on after break up with John Pratts

 Bianca Manalo was admittedIy hurt when she and John Prats broke up last May. But the beauty queen-turned-actress says she has given herself time to be reflect and is now enjoying a single life.

Bianca and John broke up seven months after they became an item. Although many think Bianca remained strong in the face of the  breakup, she admitted feeling vulnerable.

“Hindi rin (ako ganoon katatag). Kasi bilang babae, kapag nasaktan ka, masakit. Naniniwala ako na you can wallow, you can grieve, but you have to give your grief a deadline. (Like) ‘Oops, sandali, hanggang dito lang ako or tama na iyon,” Bianca told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! and some members of the press at the 6th Star Magic Ball on Saturday, Sept. 1, at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel.

Sorting out feelings

Bianca believes she had to vent and sort out her feelings to move on.

“Naiyak mo na. Okay na. Kasi naniniwala ako na kapag mahina ka, iiyak mo lang. Mahina ka ngayon, pero dadating ang panahon, lalakas din ang loob mo.”

How is she now, four months after the breakup?

“I’m very, very happy. I’m enjoying the company of my family and friends. Sa ngayon, iyon muna. Time to enjoy all by myself and focus sa career,” she replied.

Bianca  dismissed rumors  that she cut her hair because of the breakup. She explained that short hair is required for her a  new endorsement, L’Oreal Matrix.

“Kahit itanong niyo pa si John, nung kami pa lang alam niya na ika-cut ang hair ko ng August. And kung tungkol ito sa breakup, eh di sana four months ago ko pa ito ginawa,” she added.

Awkward moment?

At the Star Magic Ball, Bianca and John walked the red carpet just a few feet away from each other. John told reporters he has no problem speaking to Bianca if he bumps into her.

“In case makita ko siya, this is going to be the first time after the breakup! Exciting ito! This is going to be fun,” John said in jest.

Bianca shared that she doesn’t mind talking to John as well, since theirs was a good relationship. She said that she will just “go with the flow.”

“I think nothing’s going to be wrong with that. Wala namang magiging problema doon. Marami naman kaming magagandang pinagsamahan together, mga masasayang memories, so I don’t think na magkaka-problema.”

Separate lives


Bianca added that she and John have moved on with their lives.

“Masaya na siya. Masaya na rin ako. Iyon na ang mahalaga. Mas masaya na kami sa bawat ginagawa namin. Kung ano man pong ginagawa namin, masaya na kami.”

Bianca added she isn’t dating anyone yet, but is open to the idea of meeting someone.

“Why not? You know, I’m young, I am happy. So, kung may ma-meet man ako or may magpakilala, sino ba naman ako para di ba? Open ako.”

Rolling Stones announce new greatest hits album

 LONDON—Legendary British rock group The Rolling Stones teased fans on Tuesday by announcing the release of a 50th anniversary greatest hits album amid widespread rumors of an upcoming series of live concerts.
The album will be released in most countries on November 12, although North America will have to wait until the following day, the band said in a statement on their official website.
The statement contained no mention of any live performances.
The new collection will include two new studio recordings — “Gloom And Doom” and “One Last Shot” — laid down by the group in Paris in August, the statement said.
The 50-track album, called “GRRR!”, will also include chart-toppers “The Last Time”, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “Get Off Of My Cloud”, “Jumping Jack Flash” and “Honky Tonk Women”.
There is also an 80-track “super deluxe” version.
The band had been widely expected to confirm a series of concerts following a report in US music magazine Billboard on Thursday which said they were planning four dates in November in New York and London.
Billboard.com reported the band would play two gigs at London’s O2 Arena and another two at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The magazine said British entrepreneur Richard Branson and Australian Paul Dainty would promote the shows, which could earn the band $25 million (20 million euros).
The Stones have previously said they would not tour this year, then hinted at upcoming gigs during a book launch and photography exhibit marking their anniversary in London in July.
A new film called “Crossfire Hurricane”, which documents the history of the band from their first concert to the present day, is due for release in British cinemas in October.
The last Stones tour, “A Bigger Bang”, ran from 2005 to 2007.

Jonas Brothers, J.Lo, The Fray Concert in Manila

 MANILA, Philippines -- The last quarter of the year will see five popular international acts stage separate concerts in Manila. Among them are boy band Jonas Brothers and former "American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez.
Following his first visit to Manila in May for a clothing brand endorsement, Joe Jonas will be joined by the other two thirds of the popular Disney-grown musical act, Kevin and Nick, to his second visit to the country.
The American boy band's Manila concert will see the real-life brothers' reunion as an act after a three-year absence from the music scene. According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the Jonas Brothers will perform on October 19 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
J.Lo in Manila
After expressing her excitement over a possible visit to Manila in May, Latin singer Jennifer Lopez will finally set foot in the Philippines for the first time for a one-night concert.
The Philippine Star reported that the former "Idol" judge, also known as J.Lo, has been confirmed to stage the Manila stop of her "J.Lo Dance Again World Tour" at the SM Mall Of Asia Arena on November 26.
Rock bands, Morrison
Also confirmed to visit Manila in the last quarter of the year are rock bands The Fray, Creed, and English singer-songwriter James Morrison.
Morrison will perform at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on October 9 as part of his world tour titled "The Awakening." He is known for the hits "You Give Me Something" and "Broken Strings."
The Fray will perform live at the same venue on November 10, while Creed will hold a show the night after.
Creed, an American rock band, is known for the hits "My Sacrifice" and "With Arms Wide Open," while The Fray is behind the songs "How to Save a Life" and "You Found Me."
Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear
The Big Dome will also serve as the venue where Disney characters Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will "scout" for new talents among its kiddie audience.
In "Disney's Live! Mickey's Rockin Road Show," children will "[discover] friends like Tigger and the 'Toy Story' cast and Cinderella, and the second part they will come together and perform," according to Kerry Silson, who plays the character of Buzz Lightyear.
Billed as a "fun-filled road trip" that doubles as a talent search, "Rockin Road Show" will run from September 5 to 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

LA Tenorio goes to Barangay Ginebra Kings


MANILA, Philippines — As dust slowly settles from the swirling trades that blanketed the Philippine Basketball Association a few days ago, which of the ballclubs showed foresight in wheeling-and-dealing and which ones got blindsided and fell prey to the sweet talk of those who came bearing gifts?

From the onset, Barangay Ginebra looks like a frontrunner among the beneficiaries of player movements after it landed point guard LA Tenorio from the Alaska Aces following a complicated maneuver that involved two other teams.

But is it?

Tenorio joining Mike Cortez, Jayjay Helterbrand and Rob Labagala at the backcourt strengthens not only that position but also turns the Kings into a guard-saddled fortress where playmakers will be fighting for minutes for the chance to distribute the ball and produce highlights worthy of making it to the Top 10 plays on TV.

Siot Tanquingcen, the Ginebra coach, will be able to test his juggling skills as soon as the 38th season takes off. In fact, already he has been talking of “sacrifices” and “adjustments” players will have to make.

Tanquingcen could be referring to Tenorio, the guy he dealt away when both of them were still with San Miguel a few years back. But he could just as well be addressing his holdover point guards in preparation for LA Confidential’s eventual takeover at the starting spot.

Tenorio had never been shy about admitting how much he was affected by the departure of former Alaska coach and now B-Meg mentor Tim Cone, who had nurtured his career after a lackluster rookie season with the Beermen.

How well he and Tanquingcen can work things out to make Tenorio set aside thoughts of a reunion with Cone and his triangle offense should manifest itself right in the Philippine Cup.

“He’s a big piece in our plan to contend for a finals slot,” said Tanquingcen. “But it’s very early in the pre-season to say anything because like any deal, the player will have to adjust to the system.”

JV Casio, the 2011 No. 1 draft pick, should have no problem adjusting to the system of Alaska coach Luigi Trillo after Casio’s stint at Powerade.

Unlike Tenorio, whose heart apparently went out Alaska’s door with Cone, Casio has no baggage to deal with and should thrive at the corporate-like atmosphere of the ultra-organized Aces, something akin to how former Tigers governor JB Baylon ran things at Powerade.

EXCITING SEASON

The successful title quest of underdog team Rain or Shine and the entry of a new team in Global Port are expected to firm up competition and make the games more exciting when the 38th season of the PBA kicks off beginning Sept. 30.

League commissioner Chito Salud singled out both franchises as possible contenders capable of giving the regular PBA top guns a run for their money in the coming new season.

The Elasto Painters already proved their worth in the last Governors Cup when they stunned favorite B-Meg Llamados (now San Mig Coffee) in the deciding Game 7 of the Finals to win their breakthrough championship.

Ringo Starr of beatles named the world’s richest drummer

Too bad Dave Grohl and Charlie Watts.
Celebrity Net Worth compiled "salaries, real estate holdings, divorces, record sales, royalties and endorsements" of drummers from Nirvana, The Beatles, Genesis and the Rolling Stones and declared that the richest drummer on the list is none other than The Beatles' Ringo Starr.
With a net worth of $300 million, the 72-year-old, whose real name is Richard Starkey, easily tops the list ahead of drummers like Phil Collins at number two with $250 million and Nirvana/Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl at number three with $225 million.
Also making the list is Motley Crue's Tommy Lee at number 15 with $70 million, Aerosmith's Joey Kramer with $100 million at number nine, U2's Larry Mullen Jr. at number seven with $150 million and The Rolling Stones' Charlie Watts at number six with $160 million.
A few surprising entries on the list include Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres at number 22 with $40 million and Guns N' Roses' former drummer Steven Adler at number 29 with $15 million.
Torres, who has been with Bon Jovi since their inception in 1983, seems to be worth significantly less than his band mates like lead singer Jon Bon Jovi ($125 Million,) guitarist Richie Sambora ($65 Million,) and keyboardist David Bryan ($85 Million.)
In addition, as Stereogum points out, Adler, who only played on Guns N' Roses' debut album "Appetite for Destruction," 1988's "G N' R Lies," and one song, "Civil War," on "Use Your Illusion II," still made the list even with his bouts on "Celebrity Rehab."
Adler even came in ahead of Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood, who charted at number 30 with a net worth of $8.5 million.

Phivolcs warns of earthquake aftershocks

MANILA, Philippines – More aftershocks are expected for weeks and possibly months after the magnitude 7.6 earthquake that hit Eastern Samar last Friday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said yesterday.
Phivolcs director Renato Solidum said the country was hit by a total of 271 aftershocks as of 8 a.m. yesterday, but most of the tremors were unfelt.
“Most of the aftershocks were small events and are very far. We expect aftershocks to last for weeks or more than a month and this is normal after large quakes,” Solidum explained.
The magnitude 7.6 quake that rocked Eastern Visayas at 8:47 p.m. on Friday left one person dead and P12.8 million in damage to public infrastructure in the region.
Solidum said it was the strongest quake felt in the area in the last 100 years.
National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) executive director Benito Ramos said about 200,000 persons have been affected by the tremor, which was felt in the Visayas and Mindanao Friday night.
Ramos said the figure includes those who were evacuated to temporary shelters, and those whose houses were damaged.
Detailed figures remain unavailable as of yesterday as the field units of NDRRMC were still gathering data in their respective areas.
Eastern Visayas covers the provinces of Biliran, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Samar, Northern Samar and Southern Leyte.
The figure does not include the damaged properties in Cagayan de Oro, Surigao and Agusan provinces and Davao City.
Ramos said the figure can still go up as the regional civil defense offices are still assessing the damage in their areas.
“The damage caused by the earthquake is minimal. The local governments also responded well to the warnings,” Ramos said.
Apart from the lone fatality, there seemed to be no other casualties from the earthquake, Malacañang said.
“There was no increase in the number of casualties apart from what was reported in Cagayan de Oro City and one that was injured,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said.
The powerful earthquake forced hundreds in coastal communities to flee to higher ground due to threats of tsunami.
“From all accounts, it looks like minimal – we were fortunate that the damage was minimal,” she said.
Valte said the partially-damaged Buyayawan and Barangay Casuroy bridges in Mercedes and San Julian – both in eastern Samar – are now passable to all types of vehicles.
Power has also been restored in the area, Valte added.
The Department of Public Works and Highways in the Bicol region reported that assessments have been made and so far, there were “no reported damages” to roads and infrastructure.
The NDRRMC yesterday downgraded its alert status to blue from red but is continuously monitoring the situation in the affected areas.
A blue alert places half of disaster management personnel on standby. A red alert, which covers all NDRRMC personnel, was raised last Friday.
Valte also took the opportunity to echo the call of experts to remind the public that disaster preparedness starts at home, and that the government is doing everything it can to mitigate the effects of such calamities.
“Let us not let our guard down when it comes to disaster preparedness and let’s make sure that all our families are aware and are knowledgeable on what to do in times of calamities,” she said.
The news of the earthquake and the corresponding tsunami alert also caused the sudden rush of online traffic at the Phivolcs website (www.phivolcs.dost.gov.ph), causing the website to bog down, particularly between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.
“Between 9 and 10 in the evening we recorded 68, 000 hits. That’s too many,” he said.
Netizens expressed frustration over Phivolcs’ online absence after the Aug. 31 tremor.
“Most of the people living near the shorelines have no Twitter,” Solidum said, adding that they immediately relayed the tsunami warning to the public through the Office of the Civil Defense and other concerned authorities.

7.7 magnitude earthquake hits northern Samar

 MANILA, Philippines – The 7.7 magnitude earthquake that struck off the coast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar on Friday was also felt strongly in Northern Samar.
Many residents living in coastal areas fled their homes Friday night fearing a tsunami that could be generated by the quake.
Phivolcs placed Northern Samar under tsunami alert level 3 on Friday, which means a possibility of waves of up to 1 meter high.
Waves did not even reach that magnitude and a little past midnight, evacuees began returning to their homes.
A check on the local infrastructure so far revealed very minimal damage with small cracks appearing on already damaged structures such as bridges and seawalls.
However, local authorities are still conducting a survey of the entire province to make up for damage assessment
Engineers from the Department of Public Works and Highways expect a full damage assessment as early as Sunday morning.
The 7.6-magnitude earthquake that hit central and southern parts of the Philippines Friday night has initially caused P12.8-million worth of damages to infrastructure, a senior government official said today.
Benito Ramos, executive director of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), said the destroyed public infrastructure mostly came from the central Philippine region of Eastern Visayas.
"An estimated cost of damages/planned restoration cost amounting to P12.8 million for various public infrastructures in Region VIII (Eastern Visayas) was reported by Department of Public Works and Highways 8," he said.
Ramos cited that in Sulat town, Eastern Samar, which belongs to Eastern Visayas Region, a bridge, a few of roads and seaports sustained cracks, resulting to an estimated cost of damage of P8.3 million.
He added that there were still ongoing assessments conducted by the Regional and Provincial Risk Reduction and Management Council on the possible damage caused by the earthquake, whose epicenter was recorded 112 kilometers off Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

World's richest woman:"Drink less, work more'

SYDNEY— The world’s richest woman, Australian mining tycoon Gina Rinehart, urged those “jealous” of the wealthy to “spend less time drinking” in a piece blasted as “insulting” by Canberra on Thursday.

Rinehart, whose family iron ore prospecting fortune of Aus$29.2 billion (US$30.1 billion) also makes her Australia’s wealthiest person, hit out at those envious of the rich.

“There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire,” she wrote in a regular industry magazine column.

“If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself — spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working.

“Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others.”

Rinehart blaming what she described as “socialist”, anti-business policies for the plight of Australia’s poor, urging the government to lower the minimum wage, as well as taxes, to promote investment.

But senior ministers including Treasurer Wayne Swan — an outspoken critic of Australia’s mining billionaires and their deep-pocketed anti-tax campaigns — slammed the remarks.

“These sorts of comments are an insult to the millions of Australian workers who go to work and slog it out to feed the kids and pay the bills,” Swan said, adding that Rinehart clearly regarded Australians as “lazy workers who drink and socialise too much”.

Swan has repeatedly attacked Rinehart, coal magnate Clive Palmer and iron ore baron Andrew Forrest for running “self-interested” campaigns against the centre-left Labor government’s taxes on mining profits and pollution.

Health Minister Tanya Plibersek said it was “pretty easy for Gina Rinehart to say that people on the minimum wage should get paid less” when she did not have to live on it.

The left-leaning Greens party noted that Rinehart had “accumulated wealth from her family”, while Australia’s mining union labelled her remarks “bizarre” and accused her of pursing a “dangerous” agenda.

“At the same time as trying to import cheap foreign labour and avoid paying tax, Rinehart claims it’s millionaires and billionaires who are the greatest for social good,” said mining union president Tony Maher.

“What planet is she living on? She should spend less time ranting and more time sharing.”

Aika Robredo has become a household name

 Until the fatal plane crash of her father, Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, Jessica Marie “Aika” Robredo has not been in the public eye. She appeared on national TV on the second day of the agonizing three-day wait—waiting for word on her father and his missing plane.

She had presence. She was composed, articulate, self-possessed for someone who was not used to the limelight and public speaking. She made sense beyond her 24 years.

The entire nation took notice.

The massive outpouring of public sympathy and support was what kept the Robredo family going through those dark moments after Robredo’s death in a plane crash off Masbate, his eldest daughter said Saturday.

Aika said the worst time for them were the hours and days when the body of her father still could not be found. However, the support the family received from relatives, friends and the public helped see them through the pain.

“The hardest was the first three days when we still did not know. While we were ready for it, you grieve for something that you didn’t know (for sure) or couldn’t understand,” Aika said in an interview.

“You’re thinking: ‘Wait a minute, why am I sad when it’s still not (confirmed?)’ but at the same time, you know at the back of your head, you knew na wala na talaga [it was over],” she said.

According to Aika, soon after the news broke that her father’s plane was missing, people started streaming into the family compound in Naga City and praying for his rescue.

“That was a big help for us because we realized how many people were actually praying for my dad’s safety. We were thinking that at least if he didn’t survive, with so many people praying for him, he would be in a better place either way,” she said.

The family members were really surprised when they later found out that even people from Mindanao had come to Naga to pay their respects.

“Our orientation ever since was that our Papa was someone who was just not ours. He was someone we shared with others,” she said.

Aika said she was watching a basketball game at Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, between Ateneo de Manila University and Far Eastern University that fateful afternoon of the plane crash.

“I got a text message from my mother that said, ‘Please call.’ I knew then that something was wrong because when my parents want something, they say ‘Do this … do that,’” she said.

“When I saw the message, I thought, ‘Oh no.’ When I called, my mother told me Papa’s plane could not be found,” she said.

Her mother asked her to tell her younger sister, Trisha, what happened because it would not be right “if she heard it from someone else.”

“I was panicky but my mom was telling me, ‘You know we can’t do anything. You just have to keep praying, praying and praying.’ And I had to face my sister so at least one of us should be calm,” she said.

Aika said she decided to personally break the sad news to her sister to make sure she would be okay.

“I couldn’t do it on the phone. I had to be careful about how she would react so I picked her up from the condo and I told her the news in the car,” she said.

“Afterward we went to the Mt. Carmel church (in Quezon City) to pray because that’s near our home,” she added.

According to Aika, in the first two days after the crash, they were just “letting things happen.”

“People were going to our house. My mom’s friends were there. The Naga City officials were there and the vigil was ongoing as if someone was orchestrating what to do next,” she said.

“Even the food that was being served was also brought by those who came to visit us. For at least the first three days, we were just letting things happen. We were not planning anything. We were not attending to anyone but everyone was there,” she added.

Aika said she told her younger sisters on the second night after the crash to prepare for the worst.

“I told them, you know, we should keep praying but we should be realistic. It’s been more than 24 hours and we still had no news. So while we still hope for the best, you have to manage your expectations,” Aika said.

She said her sisters were sad when she told them this.

“While it was still painful to see the actual steel box coming down from the plane because you know what was inside, maybe it would have been more difficult to accept and react if we hadn’t conditioned ourselves before that maybe that would be (the outcome),” she added.

Aika said it was her mother who was the strongest of all of them. She kept on reminding them that their father was now “in a happy place,” she said.

“She would say Papa is in a happy place and he’s peaceful. It’s okay being sad every now and then but if it stops you from doing what you were supposed to do, maybe even he might be unsettled by that. So, maybe it would be selfish on our part if we would become the reason why he would not be able to move on above,” Aika said.

Aika said there were no plans for anyone from the family to follow their father into politics.

“It should be the last thing in our heads right now. We haven’t talked about it yet but personally, I think it is unlikely for now,” she said.

“You know, even when he was in politics, we had our own lives. We’d only help out during elections, but after that, my mom would go back to her work. We are happy with what we’re doing now,” said the 24-year-old Aika who works for an international oil firm in Manila.

“It does not stop us from serving or doing our part. If the intention to go into politics is to serve, politics is not a requirement. You can serve in many other ways which is also what my father said,” Aika said.
