SONA Ternos and Barongs

I thought perhaps the ‘Freeloader’  blog is really getting hot and it seems fit that we should have a bit of a breather, a respite if you like! 😉

 Mind you, here in Global Granary, we appreciate all your comments; after all we are trying to be a granary of ideas, topics, news, views, etc.

It is good that it is stimulating much interest!

Some of the comments received especially from those who, in their kindest possible way, tried to bring in a reasonable defence for Jeanne Lim Napoles’ cluelessness about the whole malarkey are equally appreciated.

 Our Blog item was to highlight an allegation and the fundamental wider issue which asks what happens to all the potentially life changing (Pork Barrel) funding doled out, can it be rigorously accounted for and shown to be spent on what it was was meant for ?

Why is there such mass mis-appropriation of money with these annual pork barrrel fests?!!!

Anyway as I’ve said let us pause for a moment.  Let us all have some time to catch our thoughts and rejoice with what PNoy’s 2013 SONA has to offer to all of us.

Ooops that is another controversial topic in itself, so let us focus on the beautiful Ternos and Barongs worn by the famous and who would like to be famous and powerful.

Let’s talk clothes!

I thought the Aquino girls were beautifully turned out.  I was slightly disappointed with what Kris was wearing though.  Even with my fertile imagination I can’t see it as in any way a Filipiniana gown; nevertheless she was gorgeous as always, in Morticia-Adams- in- red-sort-of-way, if a bit out of place among her sisters, who were in varying shades of the family’s adopted colour of yellow.

What about the new senator, Nancy Binay, she scrubbed up well 😉  I like her very eye-catching terno, it brings out her very morena skin.  Good inspiration to us Filipinas who have been blessed with darker skin. (I say throw away those skin-whitening stuff.  Embrace your inner morena.  You are lovely as you are.  White women pay a fortune, sometimes even dicing with their health, to have the same colour as our skin.)

Grace Poe’s gown was lovely and simple.  I like the embellishment of gold flowers across her upper body and sleeve.

Heart Evangelista was drop-dead gorgeous in her well fitting terno.  She looks like a modern Filipina who is modest but not averse to having fun.  Lovely jabby, chocolate squeezy or should that be chiz squeezy? 😉

Jinkee Pacquiao’s terno is beautiful but rather too dark.  It was too heavy, it sort of engulfed her a bit.   If it had been in the palest of blue, she would have had a real winner.

Alfred and  Yasmine Vargas came as Ken and Barbie.  Sweet!

Dawn Zulueta got it to a T.  She looks like a Filipina goddess. Jose Rizal’s Maria Clara would have looked like Dawn, I think.

Sorry but I thought Loren Legarda did not put much thought to what she wore.  Her skirt looked like a last minute job.  Something, she picked up from the back of her car, her dog blanket perhaps?!!! Miao ;).  She just then tied a belt or pinned it  to keep it secure, SONA was not an event to have a wardrobe malfunction. LOL

Let see how some other Filipinos marked the SONA day.

THE BEAUTIFUL

Despite having little or no money and a quality of existence the below carry on and show the rest of us resilience of life!

No heirs, airs or graces- what you see is what you get!

Freeloader on a Mega Scale on Filipinos’ Hard Earned Money

This is such a shocking and yet all too familiar scenario.

A Freeloader on a Mega Scale on Filipinos’ Hard Earned Money

Allegedly the girl on the photos below has been living off the P10b pork barrel intended for the Filipino people.

How absolutely appalling!  I find this  so horrendous and awful as a Filipino living in the UK and seeing how there are fairly stringent laws and procedures against corrupt and misuse of public funding.  My husband who is bemused by the pork barrel method thinks that there are so many pigs with their snouts in trough (a British saying, meaning too many people dipping into available money for their own use.)

Those people who fleeced monies from the pork barrel should be made to pay back what they got and be punished severely.   Those who jumped on the gravy train must be pushed off.

It is beyond contempt what was done.  Apparently to partake a piece of the action, some senators and their cohorts willingly agreed to the creation of  bogus non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

The monies which were sorely needed by the majority of Filipinos ( living on the bread line, some in abject poverty) were trickling down and being siphoned off by people who have more money than they need, already but they are always avaricious and power tripping.

Jeanne Lim Napoles, through her corrupt mother – Janet Lim Napoles,  lives on largesse of money meant for the masses,  parades with so much pride and self aggrandisement. Showing off her self-satisfaction and ego tripping by hobnobbing with pop stars/celebrities.  Wearing the most expensive clothes and accessories other people’s money can buy!!!

The girl does not do bargain basement shopping.  If it is not designer, she is not interested, well you can’t blame her attitude, she is not really paying for it, 97 Million Filipinos do!!!

Jeanne Lim Napoles, do not have a care in the world,  there is always more money where it came from, bugger the poor Filipinos for a Hermes bag.

Filipino children can go and die of poverty as long as she has a new pair of YSL shoes.

Adult and young Filipinos can live a life of illiteracy, young Jeane does not give a damn as long as she is clothed in Chanel.

Filipinos can walk miles and miles in rough terrain everyday of their lives as long as Jeanne is shod in Jimmy Choos.

OFWs can be abused abroad as long as Jeane Lim Napoles and her like can travel in luxury luggaged by Louis Vuitton.

Filipinos can drown in flood water, as long as Jeane Lim Napoles and her likes can fly first class all the way with a chauffeur driven limo ready and waiting at the tarmac.

One thing though, despite the riches she has on hand, she seems to have forgotten to eat.  She looks like a stick insect.  Probably too busy shopping!!!

Hope this girl will develop a bit of shame and be guilty enough to return all the things she has been enjoying from ill-gotten gains meant for the betterment of her poor compatriots.

But then again Jeanne Lim Napoles is uncompromising.  She has a personal motto or mantra “Jeane Napoles
Motto:  “amazingly enough I don’t give a shit!”

JXXX

ALLEGEDLY;) 😉 😉

Meet girl in extremely-costly lifestyles using some of P10-B pork barrel of the people?

By Berteni “Toto” Cataluna Causing

Meet girl in extremely-costly lifestyles using some of P10-B pork barrel of the people?

 

Nemo dat quod non habet!  He who has none cannot give!
 
Qui potest expendere tanta ubertas! He who has plenty can spend so much!

About 80 million Filipinos have virtually nothing so they cannot give, and they cannot spend!
 
Less than a million Filipinos can afford too much!
 
Of these less than a million, perhaps only one–ONLY ONE–can afford to lavishly sport in a million-peso worth of a set of dress, watch, earrings, shoes, bracelet, necklace, clutch bag, etc.
Who is this only one?
She is Jeane Lim Napoles, daughter of Janet Lim-Napoles, the woman now tagged as the “mother of P10-billion pork barrel scandal.”
She is fond of having Chanel clutch bag, costing about 4,000 pounds, or roughly 400,000 pesos.
She loves wearing YSL tribute shoes and she has nine of them. If each pair costs about $1,000, she spent $9,000 or roughly 360,000 pesos.
She wants to sport a Hublot watch, each costing about $11,000 each, or roughly one million pesos.
She also likes to wear Baby Pink Herve Leger, a dress with a plunging neckline to show the upper base of her boobs.  Each dress costs $1,500 or roughly about 75,000 pesos.
In one setting, you may be shocked to see her wear all in the amount of 2 million pesos!
This daughter of the “mother fucker” should know she wears all the money out of the blood of poor Filipinos.
Where is the conscience of this girl?
While she sees tens of millions of Filipinos living in hunger, while she sees luckier souls get Conditional Cash Transfers, while she sees many streetchildren begging from motorists, while she sees many informal shelters crying over demolished homes, while she sees millions of farmers scratching heads looking at their crops eaten up by floods, while she sees poor college students dropping out of schools and one UP stude killing self due to failure to pay tuition, she knows children of Payatas struggling day and night on garbage life, SHE HAS EXTRAORDINARILY DISPLAYED EXTRAVAGANT LIFESTYLES.
 She is fond of following world stars and celebrities.
She posed with Justin Beiber.
She followed Justin Timberlake.
She posed with many other internationally-known personalities.
She has thick face!
How can she have the heart of using people’s blood for her own happiness?
Like her mother, she must be fucked to prison, too, and all her signature apparels confiscated as unexplained wealth.
Let us move heaven and earth now to strip them naked and return all they have to the government.
