Wala yatang tamang sagot diyan. Siyempre karapatan nilang hindi ba yayain kung sino man ang witness na gusto nila. Pero kapag sumagot naman ako diyan, para bang kapag hindi nila ako inimbita, may galit sa iyo kaya ayaw kang imbitahin. Kapag inimbita naman ako, pupunta ka roon.

Filipinos Captured a Giant Crocodile

A giant male crocodile measured 21-foot (7-meter) and weighed 2,370 lbs (1,075-kg) and estimated at least 50 years old was captured. The one-ton male saltwater beast was trapped in a creek in Bunawan, in the Philippines, last Saturday night. It is feared to have attacked several villagers was caught after a three-week hunt.

Mayor Cox Elorde of Bunawan township, Agusan del Sur Province, pretends to measure a huge crocodile which was captured by residents and crocodile farm staff along a creek in Bunawan late Saturday in southern Philippines.

Mayor Cox Elorde of Bunawan township, Agusan del Sur Province, pretends to measure a huge crocodile which was captured by residents and crocodile farm staff along a creek in Bunawan last Saturday in southern Philippines.

It is one of the largest crocodile ever to be captured alive in the Philippines. Dozens of locals and staff from a crocodile farm set up traps to catch the monster after reports of a number of savage crocodile attacks.

The villagers prepare for initial sightings, hunters set four traps, which the crocodile destroyed. They then used sturdier traps using steel cables, one of which finally caught it.

About 100 people had to pull the crocodile to a clearing where a crane lifted it into a truck. The crocodile was placed in a fenced cage in an area where the town plans to build an ecotourism park for species found in a vast marshland in Agusan, an impoverished region about 500 miles from Manila.

According to the reports, the reptile is suspected of killing a fisherman who went missing in July. The crocodile may now be put into a planned ecotourism park in the southern town. Mayor Cox Elorde says that this would turn it “from a threat into an asset.” The giant crocodile which was pulled by 100 people is destined to become the star of a planned ecotourism park for the town.

Despite the catch, villagers remain wary because several crocodiles still roam the outskirts of the farming town of about 37,000 people. The people in that place have been told to avoid venturing into marshy areas alone at night.

But then, the Philippine laws strictly prohibit civilians from killing endangered crocodiles, with violators facing up to 12 years in prison and a fine of 1 million pesos.

The world’s most endangered freshwater variety, crocodylus mindorensis, is found only in the Philippines, where only about 250 are known to be in the wild. About 1,000 of the larger saltwater type, or crocodylus porosus, like the one captured in Bunawan, are scattered mostly in the country’s southern swamplands. Environment Secretary Ramon Paje said that the enormous crocodile was captured because it was a threat to the community but added that the reptiles are a reminder that the country’s remaining rich habitats need to be constantly protected. Crocodiles have been hunted in the country by poachers hoping to cash in on the high demand in wealthy Asian countries for their skin, which is coveted for vanity products ranging from bags to cellphone cases and the like.

Andi Eigenmann Finally Named the Father of Her Unborn Child

Andi’s page: “#welliwasneverreallytheconventionaltype: I remember, just months ago, I was so into setting up a tea party even by myself, while waiting for the ceremonial “I do’s” of Prince William and Kate. I was dreaming with my eyes open as I envisioned myself having my wedding similar, with only less of a budget difference, as compared to theirs. Now, I have to stay home and deal with feeling like a planet, while I wait for the ultimate due date. I thought, maybe thinking about how my life should be right now, like the freedom and lightness of dreaming of the next wedding of the century, would readily bring me to tears again. Tears of regret in terms of being fully aware of the greatness and success that should have been. But no. No, because God really does love me. 

As soon as I have learned to embrace the fact that instead of having a child at the age of 29, it was blessed upon me as early as now, all those points that would usually bring me to endless tears, have remained to be dreams, STILL highly possible from coming true. This just goes to show that, yes, amidst the lack of maternal instincts and no ounce of being nurturing or maternal whatsoever, I am now undoubtedly ready to raise a child on my own. Of course this comes with being lucky enough to have the best set of supportive family members. Sadly, in life, not everything has to go our way. God didn’t create us to be immature spoiled brats who have to get everything as planned. Nothing’s perfect, but I can assure you one thing: God is awesome and He knows whats best for us, without a doubt. Though not everything may go our way, things will always end up to be just what would keep us happy and contented. The key I guess, is to not expect things way too much. This will only lead to our hearts being bruised and then scarred. I’ve had my fair share of heartbreak and pain, and I must admit, they didn’t go so well at all. But it’s not like Im the daughter of Satan walking the streets of Earth to help let evil overpower this world. I go about each and everyday making sure, I do things that I want, and believe is right, specially without hurting anyone. I never intend to come off as a bad person, in any way whatsoever. And so this state I’m in is something I shouldn’t and wouldn’t be ashamed of.

EDITED: Maybe instead of feeling bad that the baby daddy (-_- really?) left me to take on this responsibility by myself, I should thank him for giving me the opportunity go out and find genuine happiness once again. I’d obviously love for him to be around eventually. You know, to save myself the struggle to find a good way to explain his absence to his child. At the same time, I’d understand. Cus after all, I have no idea who or what kind of a person all the fame and fortune has turned him into now. All I hope is that he’s well.

ORIGINAL : “Maybe instead of feeling bad that Albie left me to take on this responsibility by myself, I should thank him for giving me the opportunity go out and find genuine happiness once again. I’d obviously love for him to be around eventually. You know, to save myself the struggle to find a good way to explain his absence to his child. At the same time, I’d understand. Cus after all, I have no idea who or what kind of a person all the fame and fortune has turned him into now. All I hope is that he’s well.

So what about walking down the isle in my awesome white gown? With make up i would try to do myself, just like royals, Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth have done? What about my goal of having the next wedding of the century with lovely guests wearing the trendiest hats? What about grabbing even half as much acting awards as my mom and dad? What about that goal to set out and make a difference? What about that entire journey to genuine happiness through success? What about them all? The answer to that isn’t even that there are better things planned out for me. Its– I just need to wait patiently for the perfect time. Everything will soon fall into place.”

These are the prevailing words that Andi expressed in a very revealing blog post published Last September 4, 2011 on her blog. After 3 months of keeping mum, young actress Andi Eigenmann named Albie Casiño as the father of her unborn child.

As we may already know, Andi and the Eigenmann family remained silent for quite some time about naming the specific person behind Andi’s pregnancy issues. For the longest time, the identity of the father of Andi Eigenmann’s baby remained the big question mark in her pregnancy. It was a toss between Jake Ejercito and Albie Casiño. Andi Eigenmann quickly eliminated Jake from the equation after revealing that the son of former president Joseph Estrada was not her boyfriend then. That left Albie. Still, Andi refused to say it was he. What made matters more interesting is Albie’s (or in this case, his mother’s) denial that he had anything to do with the unplanned pregnancy. His camp even challenged Andi’s camp to a paternity test which the latter cooly declined. But in Andi’s Blog, she revealed that Albie Casiño is the father of Andi’s baby. But edited yesterday September 5, 2011. Andi purposely edited her published blog post and removed Albie’s name where he was mentioned for the reason that some “haters” violently reacted against her. This blog aims to inspire those who want to be inspired. This blog does not need nor care about the idiosyncratic haters, because of the fact that it is non- showbiz and it does not aim to be one. says Andi, backed with the hashtag #WARNING.
