UP-LAW-EVENING-79-LUNCH

[At the CHATEAUBRIAND PREMIUM STEAKHOUSE located along Roxas Boulevard, from LEFT to RIGHT: myself, Marvin Gonong, Joey Osana, Mario Clutario, Babes Navarro, Ding Dar Santos and Vic Cruz]

 

Mabuti na lang at si JOEY OSANA,

Naisipang magyaya ng tanghaliang sagana;

Aba’y gusto pa naman ay sa MANILA HOTEL ang piging…

Naku, dahil sa mahal malamang ako na la’y magsasaging!

 

joey-osana-center

 

Tumawag sa akin si BABES NAVARRO…

Request nya sa akin, syempre hindi ako maka “NO”;

Ako na lang daw ang sumundo’t maghatid,

Kay MARVIN GONONG na turing ko’y kapatid!

 

babes-navarro (1)

 

Si CEL GELLADA naman na talagang nag-confirm na…

Aba’y sasamahan daw sa U.P. ang anak nya;

Mayroong interview for enrolment sa U.P. Los Baños;

Syempre sama siya agad para sa  “tuition” ay iwas ng gastos!

Ito namang si BENJU DELA PAZ,

Tumawag  sa akin akala ko’y mag pa PASS…

Sabi nya ay sabay din sya sa akin;

Nag request ang Mrs, na sing-irog nyang dinggin!

 

chateaubriand-steak5

Syempre si BENJU’ y mabait na esposo;

Kelangan daw ni Mrs mag pacheckup ng husto;

Aba ay ang pag-check up, yon ay something medical…

Ang alam at arok lang ni BENJU ay something legal!

 

 

marvin-gonong-chateaubriand

Pero ako’y tunay na bumilib kay MARVIN,

Kapag may reunion, ang bilis at kaytulin…

MARVIN really wants to enjoy the bonding;

Kahit nga siguro’y masakit ang kanyang ngipin!

 

chateaubriand-dessert-plate

Eto namang si VIC CRUZ ay may magandang kuwento…

Nagulat nga ako at na-“shock” ng todo;

Sa first day ng class pala nila kay Prof Flerida Ruth Romero,

Aba’y may  introduction na kakaiba ang tono!

 

chateaubriand-ham2

 

Sinambit ang ngalan at may dugtong pang LATINO…

“Magna cum laude from FEU”, wika ni Crispulo;

“Summa cum laude from DLSU”, wika nung taga La Salle,

“Cum laude from U.P.”, magiting na “lady” ang syang umusal!

 

chateaubriand-condiments3

 

First time naman itong si DING DAR SANTOS ay sumama…

Marami syang kuwento at magagandang istorya;

Pinagmamalaki ang apo nyang hiphop dancer,

Sa kanya daw nagmana, at sya daw ang dance teacher!

 

chateaubriand-cakes3

 

Natuloy at naganap ang kainan sa RESTO

CHATEAUBRIAND…

Aba syempre dito ay masarap ang ulam;

Con todo ang steak at meron pang lamb chop…

Meron ding tempura na isinawsaw  ko sa ketchup!

 

 

chateaubriand-sausages2

 

Syempre inilabas ko na ang discount coupon…

Para si BABES ay start na ng computation;

Magkano ang bayad ng bawat tao…

Dahil kasama ang driver, si MARIO ay doblado!

 

chateaubriand-cakes2

 

Ang mas magandang kwento ay nung bayaran na…

Aba’y 50 % at hindi 30 % lang pala;

Yaon ang diskwento na aming nakuha,

Kaya pati si MARIO CLUTARIO lumamon ng PICAÑA!

 

 

chateaubriand-brazilian-steak

 

PICAÑA ang tawag sa premium na steak…

Brazilian daw ang style, lasa at himig;

Syempre kain din ako halos ng todo,

Dahan-dahan MARIO at baka tayo’y maimpatso!

 

vicky-bataclan-photo-banaue

Dapat sana’y nakasama si Boss VICKY BATACLAN sa TWEETUP,

Dumating mga balikbayang kaanak at mistula siyang na HELD UP;

Syempre bilang magulang at maaruga’t mapagmahal sa mga ANAK…

Binigyan ng oras ang biyahe at tour sa BANAWE, na tunay nyang TINIYAK!

 

romy-babes-gina-photo

 

Si ROMY LEGASPI naman na nasa NEW JERSEY,

Aba’y minimithi at minungkahi ang biyahe sa U.S.A.;

Magkita-kita daw kaming lahat sa LAS VEGAS,

Pati sa JOEY OSANA sa excitement ay NAPAPIGLAS!

 

At lalapang ng STEAK TARTARE sa STRIP HOUSE -LAS VEGAS at pati marahil FOIE GRAS!!

FUN  RHYME  SERIES 248:  HEAL THE RIFT; HEAL THE NATION

nation-photo1

 

 

After every election, there would always be a LOSER…

But some would thence act as though they’re CANDIDATE KOSHER;

They would flaunt that there was CHEATING,

Would even aver that there was RIGGING!

 

 

nation-photo2

 

And they will cast the vilest of EPITHETS,

To those who have won, but not their CANDIDATES…

Would act as though so RIGHTEOUS,

And label the winners as BAD and SALACIOUS!

 

 

nation-photo3

 

As though so righteous, and in a HUFF,

They’d proclaim themselves as not CORRUPT;

Bertrand Russell once said that POLITICS is for the BASE;

Lord Acton also uttered: “POWER CORRUPTS…”, that’s truly so DEBASED!

 

nation-photo4 

 

But let us heal the wounds that have been MADE,

And let’s all be solemn and be STAID;

For it’s our nation, and our only STATE—

We must forgive and not let anyone be burned at the STAKE!

 

nation-photo5

 

 

Heal the DIVISION; let’s go into FUSION…

Uniting the NATION should be our ASPIRATION;

Let’s cast out all ASPERSION against OTHERS,

Peace, reconciliation and harmony must be our DRUTHERS!

 

 

duterte-in-batangas

Another of those vilest of EPITHETS against our PRESIDENT,

Would never even mark a point, a score or a DENT…

DUTERTE has been lambasted, censured, maligned, and CUSSED;

He could causally say that’s the “karma” of his proclivity to CURSE!

 

 

FILIPINOS-HAPPY-PHOTO

 

Let’s now BURY the HATCHET, so to SPEAK…

And think of our future generation and our KINDRED;

The youth of our nation must be PROTECTED,

Our country’s UNITY must always be our principal GOAL and OBJECT!

[This is the photo of my KUMPADRENG JOSE “JOE” VERGARA taken many decades ago. He still carries and possesses that gallant and chivalrous bearing of his teenage years. In accord with his comedic and laughter-inducing tales and stories, I have crafted out this FUN RHYME BLOG which virtually depicts his brand of JOKES: RED, YELLOW and GREEN! Every time we would go for an outing in CALATAGAN, BATANGAS; JOE will be our usual raconteur, entertainer, drink bartender, and food provider. THANK YOU SO MUCH PARENG JOE! ]

 

 

Talagang ikaw Pare ay sadyang MAASAHAN…

Sa tag-init man o sa kahit na dumating ang TAG-ULAN,

Isa kang magiting na KUMPARE’t  KAIBIGAN,

Walang ka-plastikan at tunay ding KAGALANG-GALANG!

 

calatagan-part2-photo1

Mahusay kang tunay na makipag-PR…

Kahit na doon sa namimisikleta o yong may CAR;

Friend kang talaga ng halos lahat ng TAO…

Matalino man pati na din ang mga  BOBO!

 

calatagan-part2-photo2

Sa mga jokes ikaw ay tunay na MAGALING…

RED, YELLOW pati na rin ang joke na GREEN;

RED syempre ay joke na parang BLOODY,

Syempre yong YELLOW ay joke tungkol sa TAE!

 

calatagan-part2-photo3

 

Meron ka ding religious-sounding na JOKE…

Halos ay maihi na ang friend kong si BOK,

Joke na tungkol sa dalangin, pamamanata at PAGDARASAL;

Mabuti na lang at makapal ang kay BOK na SALAWAL!

 

JOE-VERGARA-CHPG

[As a former topnotch CHPG officer, PARENG JOE was eventually hired as consultant by the PNP to train BIG BIKE RIDERS of the unit particularly on work-related ethics and the use, precise operation and proper maintenance of their BIG BIKES.]

Best trainer ka din ukol sa BIG BIKE DRIVING,

Syempre sya’y maingat, mabilis at MATULIN…

The BEST in the West noong sya’y nasa CHPG;

Marami-rami rin naman ang mga chicks nya… OH GEE!

 

 

calatagan-part2-photo5

Hindi babae ang naturingan kong CHICKS,

Mahilig lang syang magpakain ng FEEDS;

Kaya marami syang nakukuhang ITLOG,

At halos ay palaging maalat ang kanyang BETLOG!

 

lyn-wandra-lago-de-oro

Maalat nga kasi dahil panay ang SWIMMING…

Doon sa dagat lalo na sa lugar na MALALIM;

LAGO DE ORO RESORT po ang katapat NITO,

Pag-aari ng Lebanese na anyo po’y MESTIZO!

JOE-AMIE-VERGARA-PHOTO

[My KUMPADRENG JOE is seen in this photo, with the LOVE OF HIS LIFE, AMIE!!!!]

 

Ang kanyang maybahay ay si PRETTY AMIE,

Marikit, maganda and the best for a FAMILY;

Mahusay na maglingkod at masinop MAG-NEGOSYO,

Kaya buhay nila’y tunay nang gumanda’t UMASENSO!

 

 

alyza-photo-balabal

Ang panganay nilang anak ay itong si JUSTIN,

Si JECJEC naman ang sumunod at sya po’y bunso DIN;

They are the members of a happy FAMILY…

Their WEALTH cum HEARTH is for their kin’s POSTERITY!

FUN  RHYME  SERIES 246: JUDGE  CATHERINE MANODON: AN INTREPID AND HARDWORKING JUDGE

 

 

judge-catherine-manodon

[Photo shows an episode in the the conduct of a court proceedings of a criminal case in the sala of JUDGE CATHERINE MANODON at the Regional Trial Court of Quezon City, Metro-Manila particularly at Branch 104 located on the second floor of the Quezon City Hall of Justice.]

 

 

A fearless and audacious MAGISTRATE,

Voided a city ordinance favoring those who’re INEBRIATE;

‘Twas a petition against the grand CITY HALL,

As she annulled the ban against drinking in a street STALL!

 

 

Her fearlessness has no bounds INDEED,

If within the ambit of the law, she’d concur with the  CREED;

In an injunction case, she did what was RIGHT,

Enforceability of her court’s decree must not go astray and BLIGHT!

 

  

Indeed, she made the competent CLARIFICATION —

Her court’s orders do have a strict LIMITATION;

Her court’s judicial region within the METROPOLIS,

Cannot overstep the bounds, as it would be FOOLISH!

 

 

  

   As a GEMINEAN, born on JUNE FOURTEEN—

She follows her instincts and does not mimic the TREND;

A judge who indeed is a NATURAL COMMUNICATOR…

That, I believe explains her being a good RACONTEUR!

 

 

  

As a GEMINEAN, she’s attractive and FUNNY;

Intelligence is her ace trait, passed on from her DADDY…

She has a clear mind for solving PROBLEMS;

Multitasking is her thing, as her creative skill further BLOSSOMS!

 

 

  

With natural curiosity too as her plain SKILL,

Blended with her leadership traits, that’s quite a MILL…

 She surely would be a topnotch MAGISTRATE,

In JDR, indeed she’d cordially prod litigants to NEGOTIATE!

 

 

  

GEMINIS born on June 14 are witty and SOCIAL,

You could even be top journalist, if you did choose that CALL…

Per those June 14 zodiac analysts, you are a health conscious PERSON,

So take regular work breaks, and that’s for a REASON!

 

 

 

Your being a hardworking JUDGE,

Could bring unto your health some sort of SMUDGE…

Be wary too from getting wearied and FATIGUED,

Look around for leisure, perhaps an entertaining musical GIG!

 

 

  

As a GEMINEAN, you’re fond of watching DOCUMENTARIES,

You too for a time loved keeping those DIARIES…

You’ll have a great part in the future of your PROGENY,

Love, care and nurture; cause it’s your DESTINY!

FILIPINOS-HAPPY-PHOTO

[Ang kabataan ang siyang pagasa ng ating bansa. Gawin natin ang lahat upang ang mga susunod na salinlahi ng ating bansa ay hindi magugumon o masasadlak sa maigting na kahirapan, sa droga, digmaan, kriminalidad at sa ano pa mang salot sa lipunan. Tayo ay magkaisa na at ating iwaksi ang poot at galit na magsisilbing balakid sa pagkakaisa ng ating bansa.]

 

Natapos na ang pambansang ELEKSYON…

Dapat ay ating iwaksi na ang mga EMOSYON;

Maghilom na sana ang naging IRINGAN,

Magkabati’t magsama na tungo sa pambansang KAUNLARAN!

 

 

 

Kung mahal nating tunay ang ating BANSA,

Iwaksi na natin ang pagngangalit at PAGTUYA;

Bigyan natin ng espasyo ang KAPAYAPAAN,

Huwag na nating pasiklabin pa ang ALITAN!

 

happy-filipino-2 

 

Gamitin natin ang SOCIAL MEDIA ng POSITIBO,

Iwasan na natin ang mga POST na MAGARBO;

MAGARBO sa pang-aasar at PANUNUYA,

Mas MAGARBO rin sa salitang NANANAULA!

 

 

 

Isipin nating ang ating bansa’y kailangang MAG-KAISA…

Bigyan natin ang lahat ng matingkad na PAGASA!

Igalang natin ang ating PANGULO..

Bagamat hindi siya tunay na PERFECTO!

 

 

happy-filipino-3

 

Nagwagi’t nanalo ang PANGULO sa HALALAN…

Ang POONG MAYKAPAL ang siyang mas may ALAM!

Wika nga’y: “ANG TINIG ng TAUMBAYAN…

Ay TINIG ng DIYOS “, na tunay na mas higit ang KAALAMAN!

 

 

 

Ipagdasal natin ang ating BANSA,

Kapayapaan at kaunlara’y dapat RUMAGASA;

Lahat tayong mga Filipino’y MABIBIYAYAAN,

Huwag po nating pagkakawatak-watak ay HAYAAN!

 

filipino-kids-4 

 

Habang tayo’y nagpupunla ng GALIT,

Lalong sumisidhi ang POOT at  PAGNGANGALIT…

“NATIONHOOD” ay dapat nang bigyan ng PRAYORIDAD;

Ibaon na ang galit at ang poot ay huwag nang ILANTAD!

 

 

 

Darating naman ang susunod na HALALAN,

Dapat ipagdasal natin magpatuloy ang KAPAYAPAAN…

Dahil kapag ang bayan nati’y nagka-WINDANG-WINDANG,

Dagundong na pagsisisi ang  ating DADATNAN!

 

…AT MAGIGING KAWAWA ANG ATING MGA ANAK AT LAHAT NG KABATAAN!!!! 

 

 

 

FUN  RHYME  SERIES 244: JUDGE FERNANDO T. SAGUN, Jr.: AN EXEMPLAR OF A MAJESTIC MAGISTRATE

judge-sagun-photo

  [His HONOR, Judge FERNANDO T. SAGUN, Jr., is shown here in a group photo with his staff at the Regional Trial Court of Quezon City (Branch 78). Judge Sagun sports a very unique and peculiar kind of beard which is blond, long, thin and wispy; which I now label as the “SAGUN BEARD”.  More power to you Judge SAGUN!]

 

An incorruptible magistrate, who’s really STRAIGHT;

That’s one of his most easily discernible TRAIT…

He is so simple and so very MODEST;

Actually saw him once riding on a tricycle SEAT!

 

 

 

He lives within our NEIGHBORDHOOD,

And he truly has a homely MOOD…

Saw him once even watering their front yard PLANT…

As though a green-thumbed gardener in some ornamental STAND! 

 

 

 

Has professionalized and re-formalized our notarial PRACTICE,

Insured that lawyers are guided by truth and JUSTICE;

He impressed me as circumspect and so SYSTEMATIC,

His decisions show that his skills as ANALYTIC!

 

 

 

As a CANCER person, he has a strong creative STREAK;

Has great intellectual abilities too, making his tasks as easy as CAKE…

He weighs the reactions of people AROUND,

His charity and kindness truly ABOUND!

 

 

 

GOAT is the zodiac animal associated with HIM,

The element for his GOAT symbol is the Wood YIN;

His lucky numbers are 3, 4 and NINE…

Perhaps, it would be good at the LOTTO to fall in LINE!

 

 

 

As and by way of a health ADVICE,

Dealing with stress, you ought to be WISE…

You must keep a proper schedule for SLEEP;

To insure that your slumber will truly be DEEP!

 

 

As recognition of his leadership SKILL,

 Was appointed as EJ, to among others spin the WHEEL…

As before, assignment via raffle of cases was DONE —

Now it’s electronic, no more wheel that needs to be SPUN!

 

 

 

He is known to be a bit STRICT…

At the HALL OF JUSTICE, he started to do a RESTRICT;

To maintain respect unto the courts of LAW,

Attire must be formal, just as was said in a SAW!

 

 

 

As a majestic magistrate in our CITY,

He ought to be honored in some CEREMONY;

His public-servant posture as an industrious and fair JUDGE…

Will truly help to de-clog the judicial HODGE-PODGE!

judge-sagun-photo-group

[Here’s a photo of Judge SAGUN with his staff and his staff’s family member at RTC, Quezon City (Branch 78);  snapped during of the court’s Christmas parties!]

MORE POWER

AND

GOD BLESS JUDGE!

 

 

FUN  RHYME  SERIES 243: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAE

 

mae-young-photo

[Our sister MAE is shown in this photograph in a fascinating pose, ebullient and oozing with self-confidence. Like me, MAE graduated from the University of the Philippines. She is turning fortyish but her looks and physiognomy evoke a teenish and youthful aura which appears au naturel for our clan —  as our surname is YOUNG.]

 

Happy birthday to you our SISTER,

Hope you’ll grow YOUNG just like our FATHER;

Age is actually just a NUMBER…

We’ll grow and mature forever and EVER!

As a GEMINI, you thrive when surrounded by PEOPLE…

You’re willing to share your feelings, that’s DELIGHTFUL;

You deal with unknown situations very WELL,

You’re so flexible and that’s so SWELL!

mae-dad-max-photo

You are methodical and a bit CONSERVATIVE,

As a GEMINEAN, you are deemed as self-EXPRESSIVE;

GEMINEANS have golden tongues, they SAY—

That’s perhaps you are proficient when you PARLEY!

GEMINEANS are possessed too with quicksilver MINDS,

That means you are  witty; that’s one of your SIGNS;

You can literally charm the birds off the TREES…

And can fascinate anyone, as easy as a BREEZE!

mae-young-photo-2

With your zodiac sign too, you’re deemed as FLEXIBLE;

You like almost every change, as you’re ABLE—

Indeed, GEMINEANS are noted for intellectual QUALITIES…

I’d  affirm and shout that out with FLYING-KISSES!

On this your NATAL DAY, I wish you LONG LIFE and MORE SUCCESS;

Am sure you’ll attain it as you’re full of PROWESS—

For indeed, any DREAM that’s DREAMT to be ACHIEVED…

With HARD WORK as  ingredient,  TRIUMPH will  surely be FULFILLED!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAE!!!!
