Trillanes one more time

10 reasons why Trillanes and company packed up (according to a forwarded email)

1) Not even his mother joined them

2) Oakwood had a better lobby

3) CNN was not there to cover it

4) The hotel had run out of ice cubes

5) The APCs were parked in the lobby and not the parking lot

6) Trillianes realized being teargassed was not part of his mandate as senator.

7) Guingona thought it was an anti-erap, or pro-erap pardon rally, whatever...

8) Surrender was better than the company of Father Robert Reyes.

9) Trillianes noticed people were crying not because of the tear gas but because of him

10) Even GMA was beginning to look better the longer they stayed.

10 reasons why they should have gone to Victoria Court instead

1) They were only gonna stay for a 'short time' anyway

2) Bishop Labayen and Fr. Robert Reyes could have heard confessions

3) They could have wet the towels in the jacuzzi to combat tear gas

4) There are no wedding receptions in Victoria Court. Only honeymoons.

5) Victoria always has more people than Manila Pen

6) The APC won't know which garage to park in, sobrang dami eh.

7) The ceiling mirrors would have thrown off the raiding party.

8) ABS-CBN could have done an episode of XXX and The Buzz while covering the standoff

9) 'What happens in Victoria Court stays in Victoria court'

10) It's a good place to get screwed

Lessons learned from Manila Pen

Sonny Trillanes has educated Filipinos on so many things:

1. It is possible to walk from Makati Trial Court to Manila Peninsula.

2. A tank can fit into the Manila Pen lobby.

3. Pinky Webb and Ces Drilon are not pretty with no makeup.

4. Ces Drilon has curly hair when it isnt blow dried.

5. Media are always the victims and the heroes even if they were accomplices in a hostage situation.

6. Guingona really has humongous ears.

7. Trillanes has serious receding hairline problems.

8. You can always turn your back to appear disdainful when you cant say anything profound.

9. You can talk about laying down your life and compare Manila Pen to Tirad Pass and still turn chicken at the first sign of teargas.

10. You can always chicken out and say it was to save lives even if it was primarily your own!

Tagalog version naman!

1. Pwede palang maglakad from Makati Trial Court to Manila Pen.

2. Kasya pala tangke sa hotel.

3. Pag naposasan pala media, nakakalimutan ang nag-aaklas, sila na muna pinag-uusapan.

4. Di pala maganda si Pinky Webb pag walang makeup.

5. Kulot pala si Ces Drilon pag di nag blower.

Kaya mga kapatid wag kalimutan pwede nang gawing educator si Trillanes, para din sa pagka pangulo ng mga sundalong madaling sumuko!

Manila Pen 101: To quote or not to quote

Samu't-saring kaalaman mula sa Manila Peninsula standoff starring Sonny Trillanes.

"What we did was not only our duty but our moral obligation," sabi ni Trillanes in justifying his latest act of defiance.

Dagdag pa niya: "It is our duty as religious individuals to do what is right."

Kahit ba nabigo ang Oakwood adventures nila.

Sagot naman ng isang kasamahan niya: "Yawa siya. Who's he to talk about moral obligation?"

Hirit pa ulit ni Trillanes : "The time is ripe for the Filipinos to make a decision."

Tapos bigla siyang tinanong ng mga reporters "Where are your supporters Sir?"

Trillanes: "They are everywhere."

At ang isa sa mga hinaing niya ay : “I entered politics. The people voted for me, but what did they do. They disrespected the more than 11 million votes that I got. They did not give representation to the people who voted for me.”

Not to mention the P100 per vote, a.k.a. vote-buying on the eve of the May 14 elections.

Sabi kasing gusto niyang makita ang table and chair niya sa loog ng Senado eh. Kulit niyo kasi.

Sayang naman term niya as Senador kaya humirit ulit siya: "I stood for the rights of the oppressed. We see now that this government will go to any length to hold on to power."


Di na nakatiis pa classmate niya buong araw eto ang status sa Yahoo Messenger niya: "I don't understand why there are people like Trillanes."


Kaya pagkatapos ng lahat lahat sa Manila pen, humirit na si CS Esperon: “We are relieved that it turned out this way. It wasn’t bloody.”

Korek check "it wasnt bloody" like the ruthless war in Mindanao.

Sinabi ni Esperon yan sa mga reporters shortly after dining on pork chop and rice with the military top brass at Villamor Air Base’s operations headquarters in Pasay City, where he monitored the hotel operations.

O divah sosyal. Pork chop and rice siya. Sa bundok sa kabuuhang pwersa ng sandatahang lakas, they are dining sardinas and rice. Nyahahaha.

Days after ng Manila Pen history, nagsalita na si Ces Drilon. May direct dial pala siya kay Trillanes.

“Another coworker told me to ask Trillanes if he was really up to something. So I called him up at midnight,” she added.

O divah... Kinabukasan katabi na niyang kinakausap si Sonny habang tinatahak ang daan papuntang Manila Pen mula sa Makati City Hall.

“If I knew what was going to happen, I wouldn’t have worn heels,” said Drilon, who marched, huffing, with Trillanes, Brig. Gen. Danilo Lim and a band of soldiers.

Pero taob silang lahat sa November 30, Saksi GMA7 news interview ni Mike Enriquez kay Maj. Gen. Fernando Mesa, head of the national capitol region command.

Kinamusta ni Mike ang sitwasyon sa Manila Pen matapos madakip sina Sonny at iba pa.

Sagot ni Gen. Mesa, "the jointness....of blah blah...." referring to the joint operation of the police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Wagi! Pwede nang ipagtabi ang "jointness" ni Sir sa "escape goat" ni Ma'am live on TV.

At di pahuling humirit si CS Esperon sa mga kilos nila Trillanes... "We will not allow them to grab power because after all this is what they want?"


That ends our Manila Pen... to quote or not to quote.
