How and when Filipinos were called Filipinos

Under the Spanish regime, the natives were called Indios and the term Filipinos were only applied to Spaniards born in the Philippines. Peninsulares is the term used for Spaniards born in Spain, while Insulares has usage similar to the term Filipinos. Those who have mixed blood, either Spanish-Filipino or Chinese-Filipino were called Mestizos. It was only in 1898 that Indios or natives began to be called Filipinos.

Ten reasons why Filipinos blame Gloria Arroyo for everything

I can’t help but think that Filipinos who blame former Philippine President and Congresswoman, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (GMA) for everything bad that has happened in the country have a squatter mentality. By my own definition, people who have a squatter mentality have this strong sense of entitlement. They believe that the government owes them benefits or privileges. This is why you will often hear people say, “It is GMA’s fault why there are more poor people in the Philippines”. Never mind that GMA had no control over people’s decision to have more babies they can’t afford to feed. Of course, GMA wasn’t perfect. But like I said in my previous article, the fact that the Aquino government can’t even charge her for her “crimes” using a case that could stick means that they’ve got nothing much on her.

No black, no blue, no green: Travails of the people of Northern Luzon due to magnetite mining

What is magnetite? Why are industrialised countries plundering this mineral? Can the people stop the extraction of black sand from rivers and seas by these foreign firms?

In the history of Northern Luzon, this is not the first time black sand is taken from the seas to get the black sand or magnetite. During Martial Law, the seas of La Union were already dug up especially in the towns of Aringay, Agoo, Bauang and Sto Tomas. This lasted for around four years from 1975 onwards. What countries these black sand were taken, nobody can tell. Most people know the company was called Filmag .

Magnetite has many industrial uses. This is used as material for making magnets, in construction, in paints or pigments as coloring even for make-ups, in food manufacturing, in steel production, for machines and equipment, kitchen utensils, in cement and many more. Thus, magnetite is a precious mineral.

It was discovered recently that if you separate titanium and vanadium from black sand, it becomes even more expensive and useful. Titanium and vanadium are very useful in the technological world. Titanium is a lot lighter than steel but is harder than steel and more importantly does not easily heat up and does not corrode.

Modern airplanes, satellites, drones and even bombs and missiles were made with titanium because it is lightweight but hard and it does not rust. Even medicine benefited with the use of titanium. Heart pacemakers, implants, hearing aids, surgical instruments use titanium because even blood and body fluids could not rust it and can stay in the body of a patient for a long time or better it can even outlive the patient. Computers, electronic equipment and computer peripherals manufactured lately are increasingly using titanium for the qualities of the mineral.

Vanadium is used for industrial purposes. It is used as cladding for steel and iron to make them rust proof and stronger. Vanadium is used in making cars, axles, carpentry equipment, in ceramics and glass. It is also used in jewelry, batteries and as superconductor. Vanadium also has some uses for marine life since most fishes and sea cucumbers are found to have traces of the element in their system.

It is of no surprise then why magnetite has become a precious commodity. And due to the character of the mineral, mining companies have discovered cheap ways to separate the titanium and vanadium from magnetite and sell these more expensively than the magnetite.

Iti is also no wonder then why foreign companies have been interested in the acquisition of huge quantities of black sand. The foreign companies took advantage of our weak implementation of laws on mining to skirt the requirements so they can plunder our natural resource as blatantly as taking these black sand from our own backyards, parks, beaches and worse from protected biodiversity areas.

From Pangasinan to Ilocos Norte, mining companies have applied and were granted permits to mine black sand. About 23,000 hectares in the coasts of Ilocos region have been allocated for black sand mining. Luckily for La Union due to the experience of Martial law extraction, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan has issued a resolution to ban/deny the extraction of black sand from their beaches.

The biggest application was granted to Colossal Mining Corporation with coverage from Pangasinan to Ilocos Norte and to Cagayan. Around 14,000 hectares in Region I and 13,000 hectares in Region II were granted for extraction by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau of the Department of Natural Resources to Colossal Mining alone! MinProcess Group has an approved permit for 8,942 hectares in the shores of Pangasinan.

In Cagayan, mining permits were given by the DENR national office, the governor and local mayors. With the local authorities, small scale mining permits were applied for while “river dredging” was the reason given by the foreign companies in extracting black sand from the Rio Grande de Cagayan and Wangag river. So, while Sta Ana officials said NO to magnetite mining, Aparri, Lallo, Camalaniugan, Gonzaga, Buguey permitted magnetite mining on their rivers and beaches. Platinum Group has about 2,000 hectares approved permit for Sanchez Mira to Ballesteros, Buguey and Gonzaga. Mineral Frontier Resources and Development Corporation has an approved permit for 1,842 hectares in the shores of Sanchez Mira, Pamplona, Abulog and Ballesteros.

It seems the ones mining now in Cagayan are Taiwanese or Chinese and Koreans. The real estate construction booms in these countries makes them gobble up sand not from their beaches or seas but from Philippine seas. One questions the hoolabaloo over the dispute in the small islands of the Spratlys compared to the mega tons of black sand they can mine from Northern Luzon alone. With the sand they have taken from our shores and rivers, they could build more islands than those in the disputed territory. And you wonder why this government does not raise hell in preventing the mining of our precious metals which we can also use for our own building and technological purposes.

At the losing end of this plunder of black sand are the people. The fisherfolks who lose livelihood and property, the ordinary citizens who have to bear the brunt of more expensive marine products that were once so abundant, the children who do not have beaches to play in because the backhoe and loaders are removing the sand, the people who once reveled in the family gatherings by the beach or rivers. We are now feeling the scarcity of marine resources because the murky waters of the rivers and the seas have driven away the fish fry and destroyed the marine habitat. Food insecurity will be one result if the continuing plunder of the black sand is not stopped.

The loser in this plunder is us. And to borrow from the Occupy Wall Street movement, the biggest losers are we who are the 99%.

It cannot be denied that the floodings and beach erosion especially in Agoo, Aringay and Bauang are the effects of the magnetite mining so many years ago. It cannot be denied that the flooding and river bank erosion of Lallo, Camalaniugan and Aparri, of such magnitude and frequency is the effect of the mining of black sand in the Cagayan River . It cannot be denied that the flooding of the barrios of Punta and Bisagu in Aparri are the direct result of magnetite extraction on the very beaches of Aparri. Buguey is still lucky its sand dune barriers have not been exhausted but soon these too will be carried to foreign shores. We dread the disaster that is waiting to happen to the rich and fertile Buguey lagoon when all the sand is removed from the sabangan. Minanga, Gonzaga is losing its sand so it is now experiencing flooding.

The affected people of these areas have fought valiantly to stop the mining. To no avail. They have gained temporary victories by court orders and memo to cease operations. But the big foreign companies keep coming back for more and more and more sand.

The famous oceanographer Sylvia Earle in promoting conservation for the ocean’s resources has said that if there is no blue, there is no green. If we do not protect the forests, the oceans will not be protected for the water and minerals in the ocean come from the forests. If we do not protect the oceans, we would not have water and sand to hold the water, we would be in a state of flooding forever and no rains to water the forests. To which we add, if the black sand is gone, the land will be washed away, flooding occurs, starvation occurs, no clean water, diseases then death will come. So if there is no black, there is no blue, there is no green. Lahat ng bagay ay magkakaugnay. Iisa lamang ang ating planeta. At iisa lamang ang iniikutan ng mga bagay-bagay.

Let us save our environment by making sure there is black, blue and green that is abundant, clean and sustainable. We must say NO to mining plunder in our mountains, lands, shores, seas and rivers so the next generation can still inherit the earth.

We must say NO to wanton disregard for the welfare of the people just because of the little money we get from permitting these large foreign companies to extract our mineral resources. Let us say NO to greed and selfish big foreign corporate interests.

All for One in a Family

The sun shines so brightLY, yet my life seem to be dim. I can’t appreciate things in life since it was covered  with clouds.  Gusto kong hawiin ang mga ulap, ngunit ‘di ko alam kung papaano.

Sa tuwing ako’y lalakad papalayo, dala ko rin ang ulap. Hindi ko makita ang daan tungo sa nagliliwanag na araw. Paparating ang buhos ng ulan. Kasinglakas ng luhang dumaloy sa aking mga mata. Mata na nakasalamin ang pighati ng buhay.  Hinayaan ko ang aking miserableng buhay. I live with it.

I sawa  car accident.  I went hurriedly to help. I heard him whispering. “Gusto ko pang mabuhay. Naghihintay ang aking pamilya.” Adrenalin came rushing throughout my body. Dinala ko siya sa hospital. I didn’t leave him until the doctor said he was alright.
From that moment on, I wake uo to reality. I saw the clouds move slowly in my path. Nakikita ko nang dahan-dahan ang  nagliliwanag na araw.  Naalala ko ang sinabi ng tinulungan kong biktima.

Bakit ko ba ginanito ang aking buhay? Ano ba ang rason ng aking pagkakaganito? Bakit ko hinayaang tabunan ng ulap ang aking buhay. Alam ko, hindi pa huli ang lahat.  Babawi ako sa lahat.

I went home.   Nakita ko lahat na nakangiti sa akin. Sinalubong ako ng aking ama ng yakap.  I remember how I was cursed by family. I remember I promised not  to step back in my own home.  Naalala ko ang mga mata nilang may luha habang sinasabi kong lalayas ako.  Kinamuhian ko ang pamilya ito.

Akala ko perpekto ang pamilyang ito ngunit nagkakamali ako. Si papa may ibang babae. SI mama naman kamakailan lang nahuli ng mga pulis na nagpupuslit ng drugs.  Ang akala ko, totoo ang sinasabi ni Mama na nasa business trip si papa. Iyon pala nasa babae niya.  Ipinagmamalaki ko noon ang akala kong perpektong pamilya. Ngunit nang malaman ko, namuhay pala ako sa mundo kasama ang masasamang tao.

Ngunit magulang ko sila. Sila ang aking pamilya. Kailangan nila ako. Kailangan ko sila. Ang isa sa amin ay siyang magpapalakas.  Kung susuko ako, si mama at papa, hindi mabubuo ang pamilya ko. Ibabangon naming lahat ayon sa tama. Tutulong ako.

Ten reasons why Filipinos blame Gloria Arroyo for everything

I can’t help but think that Filipinos who blame former Philippine President and Congresswoman, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (GMA) for everything bad that has happened in the country have a squatter mentality. By my own definition, people who have a squatter mentality have this strong sense of entitlement. They believe that the government owes them benefits or privileges. This is why you will often hear people say, “It is GMA’s fault why there are more poor people in the Philippines”. Never mind that GMA had no control over people’s decision to have more babies they can’t afford to feed. Of course, GMA wasn’t perfect. But like I said in my previous article, the fact that the Aquino government can’t even charge her for her “crimes” using a case that could stick means that they’ve got nothing much on her. 

People with squatter mentalities do not believe in hard work or in contributing to the betterment of society. They think that they can rely on the government to be responsible for their own happiness. It is quite a fitting description considering squatters by their very nature have no concern or respect for the rights or property of others. They also think that the laws do not apply to them and that they are entitled to disregard them. Some squatters can be arrogant, defiant and selfish. For some reason, the incumbent President, Noynoy Aquino (PNoy) and his minions come to mind when I think about people with squatter mentality. After all, PNoy and his mouthpieces keep blaming GMA for everything, including their own shortfalls and especially when they commit gaffes.
Take the case of singer and songwriter, Jim Paredes. He has been very active on his twitter account lately trying to vilify GMA every chance he gets. This is what he tweeted earlier: “Atty Topacio MD, better check her height. I think she may have stopped growing, too. She may need therapy abroad.” Judging by the number of crass tweets Jim has been sending in reference to GMA, I think it is safe to say that Jim may have lost the plot. Jim appears to be struggling to find his relevance in Philippine society nowadays. His jokes are so half-a-century ago – back when political correctness was non-existent and Tito Vic and Joey ruled the comedy scene. To be precise, his jokes do not belong in this day and age when making fun of people’s appearance or illness is a no-no and a sign of ill breeding. 

As a self-proclaimed key player in the very first (and certainly not the last) people power, Edsa revolution, Jim seems to think that he still has credibility after lending his talent to the campaign for PNoy during the 2010 presidential election — PNoy, who most rational people know, was the least qualified of all the presidential candidates. Sadly, Jim used his popularity to help PNoy win the election. Jim’s action is something that I would consider “misguided” and his lack of remorse in supporting PNoy even after PNoy’s mediocre performance after almost two years in office is pathetic to say the least. Worst of all, Jim’s blind support for PNoy’s defiance of the Supreme Court says a lot about his character: arrogant, shows no respect for the law, and no concern for the rights of others. In short, he seems to have a squatter mentality.

There are many more high-profile personalities like Jim Paredes who still refuse to see the big picture. They fail to see that their continued ranting against GMA and some of the members of the Supreme Court continues to divide the nation between those who are being irrational and those who can think objectively, which in turn results in disunity and instability. 

Ask the average Filipino why he hates GMA and you won’t get a straight answer. He’ll just spew the usual “she cheated during the 2004 election” or “she stole taxpayer’s money” drivel. It gets really boring to hear the same thing over and over without getting any of the specifics or details of their allegations against GMA. 

Since some people have a hard time figuring out why they hate GMA, I have come up with a list of the most probable reasons why they do:

1. Most Filipinos think that blaming the late former President, Ferdinand Marcos is so passé so they have moved on to GMA. A quarter of a century after Edsa, the Aquinos and their supporters cannot keep blaming the original “bad guy” because blaming Marcos after all these years will highlight the fact that there was nothing significant about the so-called “people power” revolution that happened in 1986 to begin with. It becomes funnier when you hear them say, “GMA is worse than Marcos” because they don’t realise that this is the same as saying, “We were better off during the Marcos years”.

2. Most Filipinos need to blame someone for the lack of progress in their own personal lives. They might still be stuck doing the same dead-end job or in the case of some, still stuck waiting for government handouts.

3. Most Filipinos are actually angry with themselves, not with GMA. Underneath that arrogance is a people who are clueless as to why the country continues to be plagued by corruption and lack of progress. They don’t realize that it is the people’s lack of attention to how public servants do their jobs that is the reason why public funds gets mismanaged. In other words, people’s apathy and indifference to how the country is being run is the real cause of corruption and not GMA.

4. Most Filipinos need a diversion. They’ve got nothing going for them. In the case of PNoy for example, he needs to divert people’s attention away from his lack of leadership skills and lack of vision for the country’s future. It is beginning to be quite obvious to a lot of Filipinos that his only agenda for the entire duration of his term is to prosecute GMA. PNoy seems to think that he can simply continue to ride upon GMA’s economic gains while blaming her during his term. 

5. Most Filipinos are suckers for drama. This is why they would rather believe hearsays or “tsismis” than facts. It doesn’t help that GMA was said to be not in good terms with some stakeholders of mainstream media. Allegations of GMA’s criminal activities probably gave them huge profits every time they printed stories of her “crimes”.

6. Most Filipinos are addicted to instant gratification. Instant gratification describes the short-term satisfaction gained from impulsive behaviour. And some of the things that can give Filipinos instant gratification are initiatives like “people power” revolutions and habits like defying the rule of law. It is much easier and quicker to get instant results when you throw the rulebook out of the window. But there are grave consequences when using shortcuts like defying the law as an option at getting something done. Most people have not realized it yet but removing an elected leader unconstitutionally the first time already set a dangerous precedent. It gave people excuse or reason to justify doing it again and again. Marcos, Erap and now the Supreme Court. 

7. Most Filipinos are ignorant of their rights. 25 years after Edsa, Filipinos still struggle with their knowledge of what freedom is about. They don’t seem to know how to use their so-called freedom responsibly. This is evident in how some Filipinos keep throwing false accusations against their opponents left and right without thinking of the consequences. This is evident in how PNoy keep saying that some members of the Supreme Court cannot be trusted to do the right thing. 

Some Filipinos are even ignorant of the law and individual rights, which is precisely the reason why they are gullible enough to believe people who claim to be doing the “righteous” thing like when DOJ secretary Leila de Lima claimed she was looking after the “national interest” in defying the temporary restraining order of the Supreme Court.

8. Most Filipinos are beholden to celebrities and sons and daughters of so-called “heroes”. If you don’t have a celebrity gene, you could end up the bad guy. But what’s so dysfunctional about most Filipinos’ way of thinking is that they keep voting into office the relatives of the public servants they say are corrupt (the Marcos’s, the Estradas, and the Arroyos among others) and most of their preferred lawmakers are showbiz personalities or are sporting heroes. Which is why precious time and taxpayer’s money are spent on trivial stuff like the proposal to rename Edsa to Cory Aquino Avenue.

9. Most Filipinos are still looking for a hero. The people who voted for him thought they found a hero in PNoy. But PNoy actually thought he could get some direction on how to run the country from the people. Both are getting lost in the process of looking at each other for clues on how to get to the quickest way to the “tuwid na daan” or straight path. 

10. Most Filipinos still believe in “angels” and “demons”. This is unfortunately a legacy of peoples’ belief in superstition. Like those who believe in witchcraft, some will believe “evil” stories involving GMA even if these lack any basis or evidence to back up the claim. Because some things are very difficult to accept like the reality that they are also accountable for their own lives, some Filipinos would look at their problems, shrug these off and say that things happen for a reason because of interventions by “The Adjustment Bureau” or some heavenly being. Never mind that some things like politicians getting away with criminal activities happen because of their own negligence or lack of vigilance. 

So there you have it. It does make sense for most Filipinos to keep blaming GMA. They don’t have to do anything but send out “sick” jokes and feel good about themselves. Unfortunately for them, their lack of foresight can be their undoing. They fail to realize yet again, that even if they successfully prosecute and put GMA in jail, the way they did with former President Joseph “Erap” Estrada or even when they forced Marcos into exile, they will have no one else to blame but themselves for the lack of progress in the country in the end.

And that is why there are a lot of squatters in the Philippines.

Weaving a Living


A fisherman weaves his damaged net at Pandan, Caoayan. I approached him and asked if I he didn't mind me taking photos around his bamboo raft. He said, he didn't. In fact, even when I was taking this photo, he didn't winch a smile or a grimace at all, as if I wasn't there.

This place is where the river washes out to sea. Fishemen can choose to head out to sea when the waters are calm, or they can choose to catch fishes in the river. Fish pens are plenty in this place.

To Live Longer...


Manang (sorry I forgot her name) and I talked at length. She said she is already 84! I can't believe my ears. She still looks spritely. I asked her secret. She replied she eats a lot of vegetables. Though she sells longanisa, she eats them sparingly.

She also mentioned some photographers who were "like us, with big cameras" who also made her stall a "pit stop" where she handed clues to the next subject of hunt. Evidently, she was talking about the Amazing Race reality show.

I promised to give her this photo when I come back.

I was sitting comfortably in the MRT last Friday when a middle-aged woman walked in front of me. I contemplated on whether I should I give my seat but I ended up offering my seat since I can barely stand watching her wobble while the train is in motion. She got off earlier than I did but when I was about to reclaim my seat a mother and child came in. I offered them my seat again.

While standing and enduring the long ride from Trinoma to Ayala, I resorted to my usual habit of observing people to kill time. I sad realization struck me. Young people these days, especially the female ones, barely exhibit the “mapagbigay” attitude. Almost the MRT riders were scramming for a seat. Some barely recognize other people who might need the seat more than they do.

Upon arriving at Ayala, I saw a family of four. I think the two kids were around 5 and 7 years old. They were talking to their parents in English and they sounded very demanding. I thought back to the days when kids use po and opo and their mouths were firing Filipino dialects and not strutted English statements.

When I got home, I looked for my aunt “para magmano”. I thought again, “How many people still do this?”

Pagbibigay, po, opo and pagmamano. Where are you, precious Filipino values? It seems the improvement of this country is inversely proportional to your existence. Is it inevitable? As people improve, do they care more and more about themselves and less of other people? As much I love advancement, I miss the days when people do not stare at me pag nagmamano, when offering a set was not a second thought, and when the use of opo and po was a subconscious habit.

The more we advance, how many more precious Filipino values will become extinct?

Common Family Traits

Filipinos highly value the presence of their families more than anything. Despite the liberal influence they have gotten from the west, the family remained the basic unit of their society. This trait clearly shows among Filipinos abroad who endure homesickness and tough work just to support their families back home.

In a traditional Filipino family, the father is considered the head and the provider of the family while the mother takes responsibility of the domestic needs and in charge of the emotional growth and values formation of the children. They both perform different tasks and being remarked separately by the children. Children see their mothers soft and calm, while they regard their fathers as strong and the most eminent figure in the family.

Because of this remarkable closeness, parents sometimes have difficulties letting go of their children and thus results to having them stay for as long as they want. For This somehow explains why grandparents are commonly seen living with their children in the Philippines. Unlike the way people grow old in the west where they are provided with outside homes and care giving, Filipino elderly enjoy their remaining lives inside their houses with their children and grandchildren looking after them.

Another trait Filipinos made themselves exceptional from others is their strong respect for elders. Children are taught from birth how to say “po” and “opo” to teach them as early as possible how to properly respect their elders. These words are used to show respect to people of older level. Even adults will be criticized for not using these words when speaking with their parents or people older than them. Inside the family, the parents are expected to receive the highest respect from the children along with the elder siblings; as they are given more responsibilities to look after younger siblings when parents are not around.

Children fighting back or addressing parents or elder siblings with an arrogant tone is not at all tolerated. They are also not allowed to leave the house without their parents’ permission. Upon arriving home, conservative families expect children to practice the kissing of hands or placing their parents or elder family members’ hand to their foreheads with the words “mano po” as a sort of greeting.

Even after finishing school, Filipino children are not obliged to get out of their homes unless they want to. In fact, most of them keep close relationship to their parents by staying at least before they get married. Leaving them only happens when they really have to, but usually, at least one child, depending on his willingness and financial capabilities, stay even after marriage to support and look after their aging parents.

Moreover, Filipinos keep close connection with other relatives. They recognize them from 2nd degree to the last they can identify. As Filipinos say, “not being able to know a relative is like turning their backs from where they come from.”.

The Philippine Flag

Several Philippine flags emerged earlier than what it is now. The first flag was designed by Andres Bonifacio, which then called Bonifacio flag and followed by some versions of the revolutionary flags called Katipunan flags. Llanera’s flag came out and eventually followed by Pio del Pilar’s flag. Gregorio del Pilar’s flag came out and then the Magdiwang flag.

The present design of the flag was implemented by Emilio Aguinaldo, who, during his exile in Hongkong, requested Marcela Agoncillo to sew it. She was assisted by her daughter Lorenza and Delfina Herbosa de Natividad in the task. When finished, the flag was raised during the proclamation of Philippine Independence in Kawit, Cavite on June 12, 1898. Its last public display was during the death of Emilio Aguinaldo in 1964.

Manuel L. Quezon standardized the Philippine flag’s size and color through an executive order in March 25, 1936. The flag has two sides, blue for peace and red for courage that merge into a white triangle with a sun and three stars. The eight rays of the sun represent the provinces that led the revolution of 1896, while the stars stand for the main islands of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

His daughter married the Arab missionary Abu Bakr who arrived in Sulu in 1450. Abu Bakr declared himself as sultan and based his regulations according to Koran, Islam’s holy book. Shortly, Sulu became an independent Islamic state.
