Mike Enriquez sa mga nanalong kandidato: ‘Kayong mga nanalo, tandaan ninyo, magbabantay kami’



“Kayong mga nanalo, tandaan ninyo, magbabantay kami.”

Nagpahayag si Mike Enriquez ng paalala sa mga nanalong kandidato sa 2022 national elections na diumano’y babantayan sila ng publiko.

Ang mensahe ng beteranong broadcaster sa mga nangungunang kandidato sa halalan ay mapapanood sa kanyang pangwakas na pahayag sa GMA news segment na “Balitanghali Express,” na napapanood sa YouTube channel noong Mayo 10.

“Mga Kapuso, binantayan po natin ang kampanya, ang botohan, ang bilangan, ngayon hindi pa tapos. Babantayan po natin ‘yung mga nanalo. Kayong mga nanalo, tandaan ninyo, magbabantay kami,” ani Mike.

Pinuri naman ng mga netizens ang mensahe ni Mike nang pumutok ito sa social media, partikular na sa Twitter.

“Mike Enriquez is my Mood rn.”

“My full respect for Mr. Mike Enriquez for leaving a message na kayong mga nanalo, babantayan namin kato. [To those of you who won, keep this in mind, we will keep an eye on you].’ No matter what happens, we will support our Filipino journalists who are fighting for the truth!!”

Nakatawag  din ng atensyon ng netizens ang mga kapwa anchor ni Mike na sina Mel Tiangco at Jessica Soho.

Sa parehong segment, sinabi ni Jessica ang linyang “walang kinikilingan”, at pagkatapos, imbis na sabihin ni Mel ang linyang, “walang kasinungalingan”, ang isinunod nito ay ang linyang “walang pinoprotektahan”.  Hindi naiwasang isipin ng ilang netizens na sinadya ito.

Naghatid ng balik-tanaw ang segment na ito sa ilang netizens.

“The rally in Intramuros is where the People Power Begins, Journalist: Karen Davila, Pia Hontiveros, Jessica Soho, Vicky Morales, Mel Tiangco, and Mike Enriquez are together with us, having and giving hope, fighting against the unfair system of this Election.”


“Mel Tiangco, Mike Enriquez, I have watched you both for 10 years in 24 oras with my lolo who passed away last 2018. To see you both being brave on TV is the first time I’ve seen anything like it. You are an inspiration to journalists everywhere.”

As of 3:08 p.m. Mayo 12, sa partial at unofficial na mga resulta mula sa transparency server ng Comelec ay makikita na si Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos pa rin ang nangunguna sa pagkapangulo na may 31,035,780 boto laban sa pangalawang pinakamalakas na kalaban na si Vice President Leni Robredo na 14,789,892.


James Reid to manage Liza Soberano, Ogie Diaz confirms




Liza Soberano will soon be handled by fellow star James Reid.

This was revealed by Liza’s talent manager of 11 years Ogie Diaz in a YouTube vlog. Ogie said that while he remains to be Liza’s handler until the end of May, Liza already sent him a lengthy message informing him of her decision.

“Magalang naman ‘yung bata, in fairness, at saka kilala mo naman ako, kapag happiness na noong tao ‘yung concern, ibinibigay ko ‘yan, kahit sa pag-aalaga ng talents pag may nagpapaalam sa akin na aalis na, go,” he said.

The talent manager said he will always treasure the friendship that he and his talents have built.

“Ang sine-save ko kasi, ‘yung friendship kasi alam mo ‘yung ang haba ng panahon na pinagsamahan n’yo e. Hindi mo dapat sayangin ‘yun kasi wala ka nang kinikita sa bata or wala na akong naibibigay na projects sa bata.”

Liza told Ogie that she wanted to try pursuing a career in Hollywood.

“Siyempre hindi naman ako ‘yung tipong alam ko rin ‘yung hanggang Hollywood. Kumbaga, hanggang dito lang ang kaalaman ko bilang manager,” Ogie said.

Ogie said Liza has started transitioning to her new team, with James as her manager, which explains why the two have been together in some photos online.

“Ipinakilala na niya sa amin ang bagong team na hahawak ng kanyang career. May bago na siyang management. Pero ako naman, ‘yung transition ay unti-unti ipinapasa na namin si Liza sa kanya at ‘yun ay walang iba kung hindi ang team ni James Reid.”

Still, Ogie said he made it clear to Liza that she can still contact him if she needs help.

“Ito lang ang iniwan kong salita sa kaniya: ‘Anak, pag may problema ka, pag meron kang kailangan, pag meron kang gustong malaman, pag meron kang itatanong na hindi mo alam ang sagot, nandito lang ako,’ he shared.”

Caridad Sanchez’s daughter Cathy shares ‘do’s and don’ts’ on writing a eulogy




The daughter of veteran actress Caridad Sanchez shared on social media some reminders for those who want to honor or give a eulogy to a dearly departed person.

Cathy Sanchez Babao enumerated some ‘do’s and donts’ on giving a eulogy; this after she listened to some eulogies. as disclosed on her Facebook post.

“Listening to some eulogies this afternoon, and taking notes about what was done correctly and not, ” she began her FB post on Mayo 23.

She made no mention of names pertaining to the eulogies she listened to, nor did she give any detail on whoever it was who went ‘out of range’ in honoring someone who had moved on to the next life.

“Here are some thoughts on writing a eulogy,” she continued; enumerating helpful reminders to those preparing a speech or a piece of writing for someone who had passed away.

“1. A eulogy must NEVER be about yourself. Insert yourself only in the context of sharing a story or something said to you by the deceased loved one.”

“2. Eulogize the person who died, NOT their late spouse, their parent, their dog, or their best friend.”

“3. Share happy stories. It’s a chance to remember and share stories of their life with friends and family members.”

“4. NEVER imply anything negative about the deceased. That includes implying that she or he told you secrets that no one else knew about. It’s disrespectful and in bad taste.”

“5. Keep your eulogy to a reasonable length. There is no specific time limit on a eulogy, but keep in mind that this is just one part of the service or gathering. Shorter is usually better for everyone. Personally, a maximum of 10 minutes would be sufficient.”

“6. Most important, mean what you say. If you can’t be sincere, don’t go up there for the heck of it or just because you want to be included para sabihin close kayo. In today’s world, may resibo ngayon ang lahat ng eulogies — it’s out there for the world to see and check just how sincere you are.”

“7. End your eulogy with a fond memory and a positive outlook. The end of a eulogy is not the time to make pangaral or to gloat. The ending is a great time to either repeat a favorite memory you’ve already shared, or to add one final memory to leave your audience with. It is also comforting for the family and the audience to hear some words of encouragement or inspiration you may have gleaned from the life of your loved one.”

The Broadway Diva Lea Salonga expressed her gratitude for this piece and gave her two cents, too.

“Thanks for this. It’s in such poor taste when someone hijacks the opportunity to speak in order to make it about themselves and only themselves,”  Lea commented on Cathy’s post.

A known personality, Bibeth Orteza, also remarked on the said post, “How very well said.”

Others also shared their thoughts on Cathy’s list; grateful for the guidelines she has provided.

“Yes. Short, sweet, happy wholesome memories. Everyone leaves with warm thoughts and feelings after listening to the eulogy. Many thanks for pointing these out.”

“I want a copy of your post spread, printed, and posted in every chapel that holds a memorial service.”

“#1 Applies also to birthday tributes or video testimonials. Sometimes the person being given the tribute is reduced to an incidental character in the life and perception of the speaker 🙂 (“I met her in a party and several times in my career (specify his career climb and how he met common friends), and her work inspired me to become this person…”

“These are good guidelines Cathy, thank you for summarizing.”

Prior to her posting of the reminders, Cathy shared her own farewell visit to the Queen of Philippine Movies.

“A burst of white phaelanopsis, dendrobiums, and anthuriums. Simplicity and elegance for a well loved queen. Farewell, Tita Susan.”

Cathy Sanchez-Babao, the only daughter of Caridad Sanchez (86),  is a Mental Health Advocate. Grief Coach, Certified Grief Recovery Method©️ Specialist, Award Winning Author and Communications Professional, as per Linked In.
