YES! he can!

Many people are questioning his capability to serve Quezon City at the age of 77... well I will say he is much competent over those two freaks fighting against each other just to win the throne of QC. Why? because he had already proven his capabilities to lead the city in 3 consecutive terms. He fought against tax increase during his term. He lead and supported major infrastructures in the city. No doubt, he is the "FATHER OF MODERN QC". He had been a good leader and I believe he can and will lead Quezon City free from graft and corruption. He is Mel Mathay..

coming from you bistek?

Ekonomiya ng Quezon City, 'wag isapalaran - Bistek - eto ang titulo ng artikulong nabasa ko sa website ng quezon city.

Hindi dapat isapalaran ang matatag na ekono­ miya ng Lungsod Quezon sa darating na halalan sa Mayo 10, 2010.

Ito ang ipinunto ni Liberal Party mayoralty bet at pambato ng Serbis­yong Bayan (SB) Team na si QC Vice Mayor Herbert ‘Bistek’ Bautista kaugnay sa isyu ng pa­mumudmod umano ng salapi ng ilang kandidato sa mga botante kapalit ng kanilang sagradong boto.

Pagkatapos ng patong patong na graft charges sa kanya at iba pang kaso na may kaugnay na pera, naiisip ba ng mga botante ng Quezon City na magiging magaling na tagapaglingkod si Bistek? Maaring nadala sya sa maayos na pamamahala ni Sonny Belmonte at sa support na binibigay nito s knya. Oo, maaring kyang nyang ipagpatuloy ang mga nasimulan ni Belmonte, pro nakakasigurado ba tayong safe ang kaban ng bayan s knya?

Bistek threatened?

Is Vice Mayor Herbert Bautista afraid of losing the race with former Mayor Mel Mathay?

“It is now clear that Vice Mayor Bautista is running scared. Mayor Mathay is taking Quezon City by storm. The support of the people is clearly there, judging from the warm welcome we are getting all over the city,” Bobbit Mathay, spokesman of his uncle, said.

“The camp of Bautista now resorts to citing fictitious surveys that show him leading in the race for the mayoralty. It’s all black propaganda,” Mathay added.

So if Bautista and Defensor's camp released fake surveys to condition the minds of QC voters who's the toughest guy of'em all??

Between a Kiss ass and a Plunderer

They say that there are two big names to choose in the Mayoralty race in Quezon City, BAUTISTA AND DEFENSOR.

BAUTISTA has an on going case at the Ombudsman and still facing several charges against him and his brother, while DEFENSOR was and still under the president's asylum. Yes, they are big, they made it as if they are the only candidate to choose from. Bragging about their "incomparable" political experience and yet established a shitty reputation.

Wake up people! they are not your only choice. There are others who are more capable and deserving of our votes. Are we going to limit ourselves to choose between these two guys? There's also Mathay and Susano (but who cares about her). Mathay has served the city for about 3 consecutive terms, and he did well. With that, I guess, I already have a choice.

4 Tips on How to Choose the Right Tattoo

Choosing the right tattoo for your first time can be a bit daunting, especially if you’re not too sure on how to go about it! The vital part is to decide upon the type of image that you want. Remember, you don’t have to rush into making a decision, since tattoos are for life, hence…

What are the essential aspects that you should take into consideration when choosing a tattoo?

Let’s have a look at what I call my four essential guidelines!

1. Interest!
Before choosing a tattoo, make a list of your hobbies, sports, and passions as well as the things you like, be they animals, flowers, or even foods! Do you have any religious inclinations? When you keep these things in mind, you’re guaranteed to end up with a tattoo design that reflects who you are and is perfect for you!

Also, keep in mind that the interest you pick your tattoo in is for life, and not just a fleeting fancy. It should be something that you’ve always been into and always will! Also, having a tattoo of your interest may just help you meet up with people who have the same interests by acting as an icebreaker. New friends!

2. Symbolism!
tattoo-butterflyAlways, always, check out the various connotations and meanings of the tattoo design you have in mind. This is important because different people deduce and react variedly to some tattoos. A tattoo can be interpreted differently by dissimilar cultures and religions, which is why you need to be sure that the tattoo you are getting is not offensive. Also, your tattoo design may just be the opposite of what your dogmas are, which is quite unsettling if you discover after!

Also, tattoo meanings change depending on the part of the anatomy they are etched on, the specific positioning of the tattoo or even its role in a group of body tattoos. However, do not let this pull you down. Remember, every tattoo has a different symbolic meaning, so if you’re all right with what you want to portray, go right ahead!

Search engines and tattoo websites will generally tell you the symbolism behind a particular tattoo image, if you wish to know. Tattoo artists can also help you out in this respect, especially if the tattoo design is one of their own!

3. Location!
Location, as mentioned before, is the all-important factor in tattooing. The position of the tattoo can convey a different meaning, as well as improve or detract from its appeal. For example, a tattoo on your arm will have a different sort of attraction compared to the same tattoo on your ankle.

Placement of the tattoo can say a lot of things about yourself: whether you’re inherently masculine or feminine, whether you’re a sensual or calm person and so on.

Location of the tattoo also serves to show that you’re a member of a specific cult, group or gang. There are plenty of secret societies whose members can be made out using specific tattoos in specific positions on the body!

Professional men and women place their tattoos on body parts which are in a precise and hidden spot. A woman may place a tattoo on her collarbone where it is hidden by a jacket at work, and shown off by wearing a low-cut gown for an evening out!

4. Aesthetics!
People generally do not get tattoos if they want to keep them hidden, they get them so that other people can see and admire them! This is one of the main reasons as to why aesthetic value is important when getting a tattoo.

A tattoo is not only important for its significance in your life, but also because it has great appeal and makes you look great as well as unique! Thus, you can show off your lovely tattoo and guess what: good body art is always worth a second, third and fourth glance!

I hope these tips helped you, to some degree, at least organize the reasons for choosing a tattoo, in order to help you choose one that's best for you.

Sa pagsubaybay ko sa mga bali-balitang QC, may mga nabasa akong mga articles na nasasabing marami ang sumsuporta kay Mike defensor sa kanyang kandidatura sa pagka Mayor ng lungsod.Meron nga daw na 8,000 member ng Tricycle and Drivers's association of Quezon City ang nangakong susuporta sa kanya. nandyan din ang fraternity na tau Gamma Phi at Tau Gamma Sigma at marami pang iba. Nagpahayag na din namn sya na tiwala syang makukuha nya ang boto ng mga taga QC. eh ganun namn pala eh.. bakit kailangn mo pang maglabas ng mga propaganda at pekeng survey??? at eto pa..di na din sya napahinga sa paglabas at pagsiyasat ng mga kung anu ano pang isyu sa kalaban nyang si Herbert Bautista. kaya sya natawag na desperado na manalo sa posisyon..

naisip ko mas ok pa si Mel Mathay ang iboto kesa duun sa dalawang halos magpatayan na sa iringan nila..atleast si Mathay subok na ang kakayahan at talagang hindi corrupt. dba? whatcha' think?

A Glimpse to QC's History...

Before Quezon City was created, it was composed of small towns. These were San Francisco del Monte, Novaliches, and Balintawak. In August 23, 1896, the Katipunan led by .Andres Bonifacio declared a revolution against Spain in the house of Melchora Aquino in Pugad Lawin (now known as Bahay Toro, Project 8).

In the early 1900s, President Manuel L. Quezon dreamt of a city that would become the future capital of the country, replacing Manila, and home to several middle workers. It is believed that his earlier trip to Mexico influenced his vision. In 1938, President Quezon created People's Homesite Corporation and purchased 15.29 km² from the vast Diliman estate of the Tuason family.(This piece of land became known as Bario Obrero "Home of the Middle Workers" before a name change to Quezon City) The National Assembly of the Philippine Commonwealth passed Commonwealth Act 502 known as the “Charter of Quezon City” originally proposed as Balintawak City, Assemblymen Narciso Ramos (father of President Fidel V. Ramos) and Ramon Mitra, Sr. (father of Speaker Ramon Mitra, Jr.) successfully lobbied the assembly to name the city after the incumbent president. President Quezon allowed the bill to lapse into law without his signature on October 12, 1939, thus establishing Quezon City.

After the war, Republic Act No. 333 was signed by Elpidio Quirino on July 17, 1948 declaring Quezon City to be the republic's capital. On June 16, 1950, the City Charter was revised by Republic Act No. 537, extending the city's boundaries to its present area of 153.59 km². Baesa, Talipapa, San Bartolome, Pasong Tamo, Novaliches Poblacion, Banlat, Kabuyao, Pugad Lawin, Bagbag, Pasong Putik of the old Novaliches municipality ceded to Quezon City. The rest of the municipality was ceded to Caloocan thus becoming North Caloocan.

In October 1, 1975, Quezon City was the actual site of the "Thrilla in Manila" fight between Muhammad Ali & Joe Frazier.

On November 7, 1975 the promulgation of Presidential Decree No. 824 of President Ferdinand Marcos established Metro Manila. Quezon City became one of Metro Manila's 17 cities and municipalities. The next year, Presidential Decree No. 940 transferred the capital back to Manila on June 24, 1976.

On March 31, 1978, President Ferdinand Marcos ordered the transfer of the remains of President Manuel L. Quezon from the Manila North Cemetery to the erected Quezon Memorial Monument within the Quezon Elliptical Road.

Manuel L. Quezon Monument and the City Hall.

On February 22, 1986, the Quezon City portion of the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue became the venue of the bloodless People Power Revolution.

On February 23, 1998, Republic Act. No. 8535 was signed by President Fidel V. Ramos. The Act provided for the creation of the City ofNovaliches comprising the 15 northernmost barangays of Quezon City. However, in the succeeding plebiscite on October 23, 1999, an overwhelming majority of Quezon City residents rejected the secession of Novaliches.

Quezon City is the first local government in the Philippines with a computerized real estate assessment and payment system. The City government developed a database system that now contains around 400,000 property units with capability to record payments.

I would just like to share my opinion -- yes admittedly, Herbert Bautista is most popular Mayoralty candidate in QC. He had won the people's support. For my fellow voters (especially those who still supports Bautista) Sa patog patong na kaso ni BISTEK, why do you still want to support him? It is not just a propaganda by his opponents, there are actual cases filed against him. 300 million is not a joke, he cannot even explain the reason why his office had an expense such big. tsk tsk

pakikisama nga ba??

I got this picture from a www.pinoy parazzi.com. natatwa lang ako sa mga pulitiko..to be honest i don't see the sincerity of the two politicians in the picture. Parang napipilitan lang..besides kaya ba nilang gawin yan kahit hindi eleksyon??

Saturday, April 17, 2010


I was browsing the internet last yesterday and read an article questioning Mike Defensor's candidacy in Quezon City. For some, the Golden Boy's experience in the executive department would qualify him for Mayor in QC. As for him, he said that he is confident that he can win the people's vote in QC over Herbert "Bistek" Bautista. WOW! what a confidence... is he aware of his reputation by being the President's defender? He might win over Bistek but how about Mel Mathay? The former Mayor is one of the strongest candidates because the people of QC still believes in him, on what he can give to the people and to the city.

Define corruption

Political corruption is the use of legislated powers by government officials for illegitimate private gain. Misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents and general police brutality, is not considered political corruption. Neither are illegal acts by private persons or corporations not directly involved with the government. An illegal act by an officeholder constitutes political corruption only if the act is directly related to their official duties.

Vote wisely this coming election, please refresh your mind from the issues that had been raised to every candidate. Don't just listen, think and analyze. This will help us choose the right leader of our nation thus to avoid corrupt officials or candidates. Don't be mislead by their platforms. Sometimes they just use their projects to steal from us.

ahhh kaya..

baka kaya laging wala sa forum si BISTEK..kasi iniiwasang matanong..nanginginig pa man din..hehehe..

Mathay not withrawing!

“Speculations that I am withdrawing from the mayoral race in Quezon City are not true. These are part of a black propaganda campaign waged against me by my opponents,” former Quezon City Mayor Mel Mathay said after hearing that there are rumors circulating around the metro that he is withdrawing from the race.

On my opinion, to his opponents --you have all popularity, the issues, and the survey, leave the man alone and let the people decide for themselves. You are just confusing the public. It's a stupid tactic..so pleeeaaasssee...

Learn About Tattoo

Not too long ago, most Americans associated tattoos with sailors, bikers and sideshow artists. But tattoos have become more popular in recent years, and the people who get them are as diverse as the styles and designs they choose. And some people who would never think of tattooing pictures or symbols onto their bodies use permanent makeup -- a type of tattoo -- to emphasize their eyes and lips.

In this article, we'll look at how the tattoo process works and examine the safety and legal issues surrounding it.

Artists create tattoos by injecting ink into a person's skin. To do this, they use an electrically powered tattoo machine that resembles (and sounds like) a dental drill. The machine moves a solid needle up and down to puncture the skin between 50 and 3,000 times per minute. The needle penetrates the skin by about a millimeter and deposits a drop of insoluble ink into the skin with each puncture.

The tattoo machine has remained relatively unchanged since its invention by Samuel O'Reilly in the late 1800s. O'Reilly based his design on theautographic printer, an engraving machine invented by Thomas Edison. Edison created the printer to engrave hard surfaces. O'Reilly modified Edison's machine by changing the tube system and modifying its rotary-driven electromagneticoscillating unit to enable the machine to drive the needle.

No show again for BISTEK

There were a Mayoralty forum held at St. Peter's Parish in Commonwealth sponsored by The Diocese of Novaliches and Family Life Commission. Its aim is to know the stand of the Mayoralties in the issues of abortion, divorce and some important issues about he Filipino families.

Mel Mathay and Mike Defensor attended the forum.......AGAIN! Yes, Vice Mayor Herbert Bautista did not respond to their invitation to share his thoughts about the said issues. Oh wow he cannot even accommodate this simple forum. Is he too busy or too proud not to face his opponents or he doesn't really have thoughts to share about the topic???

The discussion is full of substance..too bad BISTEK wasn't there...

Do you really want him to lead your city?

They say that Vice Mayor Herbert Bautista is the strongest candidate and has the largest supporters across Quezon City. There were also cases filed against him including a graft case filed by the Ombudsman . Is this the kind of Mayor they want to lead the City? I hope they would have trusted a better one. One who doesn't have a questionable credibility and accountabilities.

Know more about Mel Mathay

I am a Quezon City resident and a voter as well. I was not a voter yet when ex QC Mayor Mel Mathay governed the city. So i did a research on his background and what he have done for the city. Here's some infos about him:

He was a Congressman of QC's 4th district when he fought against the projected 300% increase in real estate. There was no increase in taxes in Quezon City during his first term as the city's Mayor. Thus, for the first time the Local Government Code allowed borrowing of funds, and He authorized a loan for the Quezon City government which was obtained at the lowest prevailing interest rate from the Philippine National Bank based on the city’s strong financial statement and revenue potential. Funds from this loan were then used for basic services and some infrastructures in the city.

MEL MATHAY was Vice Governor of Metro Manila he was instrumental in pursuing the completion of the first rail base mass transit (LRT 1) from Bonifacio Monument (Grace Park) to Baclaran. The connection of LRT 2 to LRT 3 to Marcos Highway (Marikina) passing through Aurora Boulevard, QC was fully supported by MEL MATHAY, as MAYOR of Quezon City. Other projects such as the development of the MRT 3 Depot Station, the continuation of C5 from Katipunan/ Escopa through a flyover towards Katipunan /Ateneo, the Mindanao Avenue Extension and the Eastwood City were all supported by him.

Now, he is running again for the Mayoralty race of Quezon City. Let us support him once again, for him to continue his mission for not just the beautification but a more progressive Quezon City.

A loyal supporter

Yesterday a stranger added me as a friend in Facebook. He is an OFW. I was even more surprised when i saw his message. He said " Kababayan ako ay uuwi bago mageleksyon upang suportahan si Mel Mathay. Sana ay hindi ka din magsawa sa pagsuporta sa kanya"... I answered him "Hindi ko sya kilala masyado pro alam ko at ramdam ko na magiging mabuti syang Mayor ulit ng Quezon City". It's good to know that some people still remembers Mel Mathay and supports him in his race...

I am an artist

I just finished an artwork for my next client... it's a phoenix. It's has been a long day for me. I had an interview this morning. I'm trying my luck to be employed again. But everytime my hand holds a pencil I can't stop it from making tattoo designs. I am happy with that... I am fulfilled.. I was a Graphic Artist, now, I am a Tattoo Artist and I guess I already found my vocation for life..

His mission..

A couple of months ago, the candidates running for QC's Mayoralty race was announced. There were five of them. Five aspirants for the position. But who among those five could make the city more progressive? could be a good leader of the city? As the official campaign kicked off I listened to them, analyzed their promised programs and followed every blogs and news about them.

As expected, of course, they all have a good set of programs for QC's next two years. But one of them caught my interest. He's the former Mayor of QC. His advocacy "MAMAYAN MUNA" - The People Come First. His mission is for the benefit of the people of QC, from education, to business and economic development, to social and health services, among others.

But it is more that just his platform that caught my attention. It is he being in silence despite of all the dirty gimiks and tactics of his contenders. I admire him for that. He has the qualities of a good servant to the people. He is a man of honor and dignity. He is Mel Mathay.

showbiz lang ba?

I just read an article talking about Defensor's Movie Museum project. A mini-Hollywood for the completion of the declaration of Quezon City as the City of Stars. For some it is briliant, it is one way of promoting tourism in our country specially in Quezon City. But for me, there are a lot of issues in the city aside from making it the City of Stars, like education. Don't you think it's just a waste of fund in that said museum? Public schools across Q.C can utilize that fund to have a better school buildings, new classrooms and books for the students. I wonder why are they pushing it? Are they frustrated starlets of showbiz?
