Reports say Mar and Korina want to hold their wedding at the Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City. But they also consider holding it at the air-conditioned Manila Cathedral. If there’s no decision yet by October 1, they’ll just divide the whole ceremony into two: the first half happens at the Sto. Domingo Church, and then, with ABS-CBN cameras documenting the event, hold a procession towards Intramuros via Edsa and Ayala ‘til they reach the Manila Cathedral for the second half of the wedding rites. [A shower of confetti along Ayala is optional.]

Remember our item on a government official who’s been blatantly using his post to advance his political ambition in 2010? This government official approached another network for a guest appearance on a game show. Here’s his idea of that guesting: his “subordinates” will play against one another in one whole episode of the program. When a subordinate is called on the hot seat, Mr. Government Official will serve as his “savior” in case he didn’t know the answer to a particular question. Apparently, the suggested treatment for the game show did not materialize. Do I have to give a clue or do you want to use a lifeline?
