Century Club of Tahanan’s Christmas party attracts huge reception

This past weekend (Saturday night of December 3, 2022) inside Tahanan Village, Barangay BF Homes, Parañaque City, the Century Club of Tahanan, Inc. (CCTI) organized its first Christmas party in years and it attracted a huge reception from its members and guests, and several top officials of the City Government of Parañaque – including the new Mayor and Vice Mayor – attended and greeted the constituents. Indeed, the city, its communities and the nation are gradually moving forward from the downturn of COVID-19 and there is greater confidence among the people to gather and celebrate Christmas together now that restrictions have eased a lot.

According to CCTI president Florencia Umali, there were around one hundred fifty seniors who attended. Around two hundred people in total attended. The party was held at the covered basketball court located a short walk away from the village clubhouse.

“After two years of pandemic, (the) people (were) happy to see their neighbors and friends,” Umali stated.

Having been present at the party myself, the atmosphere was festive, lots of people enjoyed the food and drinks as well as the music, dancing and raffle draw. Compared to what I attended in 2019, the Saturday night Christmas party atmosphere has this strong sense of normality. Guests were more confident to socialize with each other.

As with their Christmas part of 2019, the CCTI’s credibility as a private senior citizen’s club of Tahanan Village was realized yet again as City Mayor Eric Olivarez, Vice Mayor Joan Villafuerte-Densing and City Councilors Rico Golez, Nina Sotto, Bong Benzon plus former Councilor Wahoo Sotto graced the party.

Notable Parañaque figures with the locals. Among them were (from L to R) Belle Golez (Rico Golez’s wife), Councilor Nina Sotto (wife of Wahoo Sotto), Mayor Eric Olivarez, Vice Mayor Joan Villafuerte-Densing, Councilor Rico Golez, and former Councilor Wahoo Sotto.

The City Government officials interacted with guests and delivered their special greetings. Noticeably, new Councilor Nina Sotto gave a slew of public service updates while new Vice Mayor Villafuerte-Densing admitted that this was just her third time to be in Tahanan Village given the fact that she is based in District 1 of the city (note Tahanan Village and Barangay BF Homes are part of District 2). New Mayor Eric Olivarez delivered his remarks to the guests and danced to entertain everyone.

When asked about future activities or events of the CCTI, Umali confirmed that there will be a Valentine’s party for senior citizens.

New Mayor Eric Olivarez greeted the guests.

Looking back at the Christmas party of CCTI, it was really nice to see the return to normalcy as well as the spirit of Christmas getting celebrated inside Tahanan Village which is the premier residential community of Barangay BF Homes.

In closing this, I encourage you all to remember that Christmas is always all about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Rejoice with Lord Jesus this Christmas.

Metro Manila Council (MMC) to release official guidelines on firecracker use

The Metro Manila Council (MMC) – a special governing body composed of incumbent mayors of cities of Metropolitan Manila – now has a new leader and as the Christmas holidays are nearing, they will soon release official guidelines regarding the use of firecrackers, the Manila Bulletin reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

San Juan City Mayor and Metro Manila Council (MMC) President Francis Zamora said the MMC is set to release guidelines on the firecracker ban to be implemented in the National Capital Region (NCR) as part of its efforts to minimize the number of injuries caused by the misuse of firecrackers during the new year revelry.

During the joint session of the MMC and the Regional Development Council (RDC) which he co-chairs, Zamora said that the Metro Manila mayors will convene to discuss the guidelines they will implement regarding the firecracker ban which was first imposed by former President Rodrigo Duterte in 2017.

Executive Order no. 28, “Providing For The Regulation and Control of the Use of Firecrackers And Other Pyrotechnic Devices,” bans individuals from using firecrackers or setting up their own fireworks displays, a cultural tradition Filipinos are accustomed to during “events of personal, religious, cultural and national importance,” especially during New Year’s Eve or even the Chinese New Year.

“Magkakaroon ng designated firecracker areas. Ngunit depende din yan sa pagkakasunduan ng mayors kasi each city will have its own designated fireworks area para iwas syempre sa aksidente ngayong bagong taon (There will be designated firecracker areas, but these will depend on what the mayors of each city will agree upon because each city will have its own designated fireworks area to avoid accidents this new year),” Zamora said.

The EO sets forth the criteria that must be complied with before a display of fireworks can qualify such as: it must be conducted on the occasion or as part of a celebration, competition, or similar event held in a venue other than the residence; it is conducted under the supervision of Philippine National Police (PNP) – licensed and trained personnel; and, it has a municipal/city permit that states the date, time and area where the display will be conducted.

In December last year, the PNP released the names and brands of allowed and prohibited firecrackers and pyrotechnics.

In my experience, I often see sellers of firecrackers during the days leading to the New Year whenever I passed by BF Homes in Parañaque and along Tropical Avenue in BF International, Las Piñas. I wonder if they will make a comeback this year as the entire nation continues to recover socially and economically from COVID-19.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What is your reaction to this development? Are you in favor of the use of firecrackers? Do you think the authorities are doing the right thing when it comes regulating or banning firecracker use? Do you think that the use of firecrackers pollutes the air too much during New Year’s Eve celebrations? If your household often buys firecrackers during the late stage of the year, how much money is spent each time?

Five Vietnamese women rescued in Parañaque City

Recently in the City of Parañaque, an entrapment operation resulted in the rescue five Vietnamese women from a prostitution operation and two suspects (both foreigners) were arrested, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Five Vietnamese women who were allegedly forced to work as prostitutes by two foreign nationals were rescued during an entrapment operation conducted by members of the Southern Police District-Special Operation Unit (DSOU) in Paranaque on Friday, Nov. 25.

Brig. Gen. Kirby John Brion Kraft, SPD chief, identified the rescued victims as Linh, 29; Yen, 27; Thi Yen, 27; Thuy, 25; and Coi, 31, all Vietnamese.

Kraft said the arrested suspects were identified as Huang Diyong, 37, Chinese national; and Ha Thi Ut, female, 26, a Vietnamese.

The SPD chief said the rescue operation was conducted around 2:30 a.m. at Bayshore I Residence in Parañaque City.

Kraft said the arrested suspects were brought to the SPD-DSOU custodial facility and were charged for violation of the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Person Act.

He said prior to the rescue operation, one Rommel Battung reported to the police that Vienamese women were being forced to work as prostitutes at a unit of Bayshore I Residence.

Acting on the report, the DSOU immediately launched a rescue operation, which led to the arrest of the two foreign nationals who were allegedly acting as maintainers of the unit.

The above report ended stating that the local authorities recovered from the suspects bills of cash, boodle money, a Toyota Fortuner and an Apple iPhone 14.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Parañaque, what is your reaction to this recent development? Do you think Parañaque is still a hot spot for prostitution and human trafficking?

Maynilad officially distributing “New Water” in two barangays in Parañaque City

Months after the launch of their “New Water” project, water concessionaire Maynilad has finally started the distribution of the said water in two barangays within the City of Parañaque according to the company’s official announcement.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from Maynilad’s official announcement. Some parts in boldface…

West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) recently started the piped-in distribution of its New Water—or potable supply sourced from treated used water—to two barangays in Parañaque City following its receipt of a Conditional Operational Permit (COP) from the Department of Health (DOH) Metro Manila Center for Health Development.

The COP was issued by the DOH after New Water passed a series of tests that proved its adherence to the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water (PNSDW) and squarely met the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines on potable reuse. The permit is valid for 12 months, and will be changed to a permanent permit once Maynilad consistently meets all the conditions set in the COP on the supply of New Water within the period, under the strict monitoring of DOH. Prior to the COP issuance, New Water has already been given a Certificate of Potability by the Parañaque City Health Office.

Maynilad’s New Water is the first implementation of potable water reuse in the Philippines.

“The DOH’s issuance of a permit to commence piped-in distribution of New Water is a major milestone for the local water industry, as this is the first time that recycled water will be tapped as an alternative supply source to address water shortages,” said Maynilad President and CEO Ramoncito S. Fernandez, noting that the recycling of water for potable use is a practice that has been in place for decades in other countries, such as Singapore, Namibia, and parts of the United States.

Maynilad’s Php450-million “New Water Treatment Plant” gets the treated used water discharged by its Parañaque Water Reclamation Facility and converts it to drinkable water supply. The facility’s 10-MLD (million liters per day) output is blended with the supply produced by the company’s La Mesa Treatment Plants before conveyance to Barangays San Isidro and San Dionisio in Parañaque City.

Fernandez said that Maynilad is eyeing to construct four more “New Water Treatment Plants” by 2025, which will get treated used water from the company’s sewage treatment plants in Pasay, Muntinlupa, Parañaque, and Valenzuela.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Maynilad customer based in Parañaque City, does this New Water distribution news make you forget about the other problems you have with the water concessionaire? Do you think that Maynilad’s New Water project will solve public demand for drinking water? If you are running a business that sells water to customers who need to drink, how do you think Maynilad’s New Water project will affect your business? Do you think Maynilad will distribute New Water all over Parañaque City within the next six months? Has anyone linked with the City Government of Parañaque given you the false impression that the New Water project belonged to the City Government?

Three robbers arrested in Parañaque City

Is your home secure and are your valuables safe? I had to ask that question because of a recent robbery that happened in the city of Parañaque. According to Manila Bulletin news report, three people were arrested for robbing a home. Over P1 million worth of cash and jewelry were missing, and only a minority of that was recovered.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Members of the Parañaque police arrested three robbery suspects who are said to be members of the “Akyat Bahay” gang on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Col. Renato Ocampo, city police chief, identified the suspects as Laz Vincent Santos, 21, a fish dealer; Tom Ryuji, 21; and Bernard Valerio, 21.

Ocampo said the suspects are now detained at the police custodial facility and were charged for robbery before the Parañaque City Prosecutor’s Office.

Ocampo said Ednalyn Agbayani, 40, businesswoman, reported to the police that around 2 a.m., she heard a noise from the gate of their house at Ilaya Extension corner Pascor Drive, Barangay Sto, Nino, Parañaque City.

Agbayani told the police that she also heard the suspects trying to open their room. This prompted her to immediately call her parents who were staying in Cavite.

She said when her parents arrived home, they discovered the ceiling of their house was destroyed and their cash amounting to P700,000 and jewelry worth P400,000 were missing.

Ocampo said that during follow-up operation conducted by members of the Sto. Nino police sub-station, Santos was apprehended through the information given to the police by witness Edrian Galario,30, a delivery helper, who claimed that he saw the suspects coming out of the house of the victim.

The city police chief said the two other suspects were identified after waving at the CCTV camera of one of the houses near the victim’s house leading to the arrest of Valerio and the identification of Gabriel as a suspect in the robbery incident.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What is your reaction to this recent development? Do you think Parañaque is still a hot spot for trespassing and robbery? Do you think the suspects could be working for a crime syndicate?

LTO revokes licenses of two drivers involved in separate Parañaque City incidents

Remember the BF Homes incident of the street cleaner who got ran over as well as the other incident that resulted in the death of a 3-year-old girl? Both incidents happened in different parts of Parañaque City and each incident involved sports utility vehicles (SUVs). It turns out, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) revoked the respective licenses of the two drivers who were involved in the said incidents, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Inquirer news report. Some parts in boldface…

The licenses of two drivers have been revoked after they were found guilty of reckless driving for bumping two children – killing one of them, and running over a street sweeper in Parañaque City.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) said it canceled the driver’s licenses of Raymond Zapirain and Rodolfo Cudiamat and held them liable for the administrative violation of reckless driving as they were tagged as “improper persons to operate motor vehicles.

Zapirain and Cudiamat were also ordered to pay fines of P2,000 and were perpetually disqualified from securing a driver’s license and driving a motor vehicle, according to the regulatory office.

The LTO noted that Zapirain is the registered owner and driver of the SUV that hit and seriously injured 63-year-old street sweeper Doreen Bacus last September 24 in Barangay BF Homes, Parañaque City.

The incident was caught on CCTV, which showed the street sweeper doing her job while on the side of the road and Zapirain suddenly bumping her. The victim was then dragged and eventually ran over by the vehicle.

Cudiamat, on the other hand, was the driver of a vehicle involved in another hit-and-run incident where one of the two victims died.

Last September 20, two children were walking along Bodoni Street corner Extra Street, Fourth Estate, Brgy. San Antonio, also in Parañaque City, when they were hit by Cudiamat’s vehicle, resulting in the death of a three-year-old.

Our roads have no room for these ill-disciplined drivers who continue to ignore our traffic laws, even to the point of feigning innocence that what happened was an accident,” LTO Chief Teofilo Guadiz said in a statement Thursday.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What is your reaction to this recent development? Do you think the LTO rendered the right actions on the reported drivers? Do you believe justice has been done for the victims?

Local authorities arrest Ghanaian national suspected of masterminding ATM hacking ring

Have you been withdrawing money from certain ATMs (automatic teller machines) lately? Did you notice something wrong with the same accounts you withdrew money from? The Manila Bulletin reported that in recent times, personnel of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) aided by the Intelligence Service Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP) arrested a Ghanaian national on suspicion of masterminding a ring of hackers that targeted ATMs. The same news report showed some interesting details about the suspect.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Bureau of Immigration (BI) operatives have arrested a (Ghanaian) national posing as a missionary but is suspected to be the mastermind of a West African syndicate hacking automated teller machines (ATMs).

Immigration intelligence chief Fortunato Manahan Jr. said 34-year-old Victor Patrick was apprehended in a joint operation with the Intelligence Service Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP) last Oct. 14 in a mall in Bicutan, Taguig City.

Manahan said the ISAFP reported that the alien was the principal suspect in hacking ATM machines installed by banks in Moonwalk, Paranaque City.

Manahan said Patrick arrived in the country last April 20, 2019 as tourist and later applied for a missionary visa using a Cebu-based company which turned out to be non-existing.

Immigration Commissioner Norman Tansingco said Patrick will be deported for obtaining an immigration document under false representation.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Did you withdraw money from ATMs in Parañaque that the suspect allegedly hacked? If so, did you notice discrepancies on your account related to the withdrawals you made?

Police officers successfully rescue Chinese citizen in Parañaque City

In Parañaque City, a Chinese national was rescued from his captors as a result of a successful operation by the police, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. The rescue happened on the evening of October 31, 2022.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

A Chinese man was rescued from his four abductors during a police operation in Parañaque City on Monday night, Oct. 31.

Southern Police District director Brig. Gen. Kirby John Brion Kraft identified the rescued victim as Chen Peng, 27.

The suspects — Qiang Wang, 34, also a Chinese national; Novin Yusuff, 42, driver; Joseph Barbas, 45; and Nino Felisan, 30 — were arrested during the rescue operation.

Kraft said Peng was recovered around 9:10 p.m. during a follow-up operation at the corner of Bradco Avenue and Macapagal Boulevard beside Aseana Power Station in Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City.

The SPD chief said prior to the rescue operation, the sister of the victim, Wang Ting, assisted by an interpreter, Huang Jin, reported to Tambo Police Station that her brother was being held by four men inside a gray metallic van with plate No. IAD 774.

Kraft said members of the Tambo Police Station immediately conducted a rescue operation leading to the arrest of the four suspects.
