Philippines needs more ethanol plants to keep up with demand -Manila Times 8/25/05

I think this oil price crisis is a good thing in that it will force us to seriously consider alternative fuel sources. Clean, renewable alcohol fuel from sugarcane and corn is our opportunity to be a world leader in fuel production. Come on Pinoy! Rise up! Grab the opportunity now. Good to see that Seaoil and Petron are taking the lead here.

Good to be home!

just got out of the hospital this afternoon. I had to be checked in cause I was diagnosed with pneumonia, bronchitis, and a throat infection! It was my first time to stay in the hospital. I was so restless. Don't like being confined. I'm feeling better now.

Funny thing is that most people looked at this incident as a forced rest. Do I really work that hard? I had no idea!

Y Speak on Channel 23

Just caught the last 15 minutes of Y Speak on channel 23. The topic of discussion was students and education in the Philippines. I was so disappointed to see a little girl, when asked her opinion about what the rest of the gang was talking about, say that she didn't have anything to say because she didn't understand english. I think she was playing cute with the camera and probably just wants to be an artista. But she is so stupid! Her remark proved what a couple of the discussion group members said: That naging bobo ang mga pinoy! And the reason why nagiging bobo ang mga pinoy (some of them at least) is stupid pride...PRIDE. This stupid girl was proud to say that she didn't have anything to say because she didn;t understand english ("Wala'kong masabi kasi di ko maintindihan ng inglis...Pilipino ako e.). It's this kind of attitude that will hold back Filipinos from being worldclass. Nakakainis lang talaga!
