On my way home yesterday, I saw a group of people opposite CEBU Fuente Rotunda of what seems to be a protest rally. Traffic was unusually heavy yesterday, most probably it was due to VALENTINES DAY fever that swept the whole of CEBU CITY. Going back to the group that was gathered near Fuente, there only a handful of them and looked like they were there to hold a prayer rally rather than the usual confrontational rally. One room for improvement though was that they could have been more creative in showing why they were there. As a passerby looking at them, I somehow surmised that it had something to do with all the excitement due to JUN LOZADA's testimonies on the NBN-ZTE deal, it was however not clear on which side they were on.

And talking about that excitement, the nation's capital is planning to hold a "big" rally this afternoon at MAKATI CITY. It is to show support to the eyewitness in the ZTE-NBN DEAL fiasco and to call for President GMA's resignation. Quite a hectic day in MAKATI today and looking at it as a CEBUANO BLOGGER, I just hope they sure know what they are asking for. And this seems to be a favorite recourse in PHILIPPINE politics, calling for a President's resignation every now and then.

On the local front, finally something of an eye-opener for police scalawags in the CITY OF CEBU through the investigation of a supposed extortion attempt of a member of the CEBU CITY MANAGEMENT GROUP. That ought to teach these types of people that citizens are no longer afraid to stand-up for their rights and kick these corrupt officials where it hurts.
