i don't know if i am suppoed to burst out in laughter every time i hear a quotable quote on tv from any of the miembro de teatro in this comedy. trilly really has to rethink his strategy, posh hotel (oakwood) + call for support (zilch) = failed coup attempt. he just repeated his formula: posh hotel (the pen) + call for support (pwede pa text...) = laughing stock of the country.
bibeth orteza was quoted to have said (with matching hysterics and directions from carlito to turn and pose for the camera) "I want to die a meaningful death!" - aktibistang sosyal eto, sa Pen pa nag drama, para syang pangit na version ni mariel sa pinoy big brother (e.g. I want to die naaaaa... last word always said an octave lower and stretched). dear bibeth, kung ang buhay mo eh walang meaning, wag kang mandamay ng iba.
eto naman si leah navarro was quoted to have said: “I am shocked. I have nothing to do with it. In fact I am in Southwoods, Alabang in a golf tournament playing golf since 8 a.m. and which will be finished at 3 p.m.,” silly bint, no one said you had anything to do with it, just get on with your golf game in posh Alibangbang (to the uninitiated, Alibangbang is an old old girly bar in Makati). Ms. Navarro has a penchant for being shocked, in fact a lot of her statements are preceded with shocked. ang karapat dapat na parusa sa kanya eh electric chair, ay, am shocked.
eto naman si Guderran Montano whose wedding reception (The Pen) was rudely shelved when bullets started to get served as part of the menu was quoted to have said: "I was for trillanes before but this is a major change..." - apparently, the prospect of shelving some "shooting" action for his honeymoon is enough reason to dump trillanes. next time, i'd like trilly to stage his mutiny in a moon mass wedding event so we'd get more disgruntled supporters. ah wait, koreans pala yun tsaka ang venue eh auditorium palagi, di sya posh enough for manang trilly.
Trillanes said: "One thing I can assure you is we have more than enough will power and fighting spirit to bring this government down.” - anong "we", helloooo You + Lim = 2 Fools? Iniwan ka na lahat ng kasama mo? The media only joined you because of the quotable quotes and besides, you were busy using them as human shields versus the PNP. tsaka, medyo nahihirapan na ko makinig sa ingles mo, pwede ba magtagalog ka na lang? o di kaya mag training ka muna sa call center para maayos ayos yang pa utal utal na salita mo.. okay fine?"
am sure i saw a cue card being held by an aide as he read his "spontaneous statements" to the press. in one footage, he was giving his virtually inaudible statement and some contraption was shoved in front of his face... irritably he swatted it away - direk, ano ba ang dapat blocking dito? pangit na nga lighting dito di pa maganda close up ko!
“I stand here today, to declare my intentions as a former soldier and now a senator of the country..” trilly forgot to add: prisoner, terrorist, squatter, land grabber, owner of 5 luxury vehicles, magdalo leader and costume designer.
Brig. Gen. Lim, partner in crime of Trilly was quoted to have said: “She (presumably referring to Arroyo) stole the presidency from President Joseph Ejercito Estrada through unconstitutional and deceitful means.” - uh i think he meant the deceased Fernando Poe Jr?
si guingona naman eh is seen sitting beside Lim and Trillanes. nakakatakot sya, para syang multo sa sukob. natatakot na ko at mukhang naagnas na si lolo. the foundation and makeup is not helping, pangit ang pagka apply ng embalsamador... ah... sorree, buhay pa pala sya ano?
i somehow didn't hear or read anything from guingona in this last excursion. stupid me, the dead doesn't speak.
Teka me quote din pala sa kay Fr. Robert (The Running Priest) Reyes, pero sa sobrang irrelevant di naman na publish. Ayun, he really lived up to his reputation... he was one of many who Ran Away in the middle of the mutiny.
Sige Pader, takbo pader, takbo... parang naalala ko ang dating bold movie na ang title eh... "wag po pader, wag po!"
eto... taken from an Inquirer article: "Contrary to claims that the action was not planned, police stopped four jeepneys filled with Tondo residents about to proceed to the hotel. The passengers said they thought they were to attend a burial but later discovered the trip was part of an opposition recruitment for the Makati event."
yehey ganda ng field trip namin, sa Peninsula pa me baon pa kong 200 pesos - teka teka sandali lang, picture sa pera eh si trillanes... putcha, play money ata eto.
