EFREN PEÑAFLORIDA, HERO

23 11 2009


Efren Peñaflorida, the Filipino who started the “Kariton Klassroom” to bring education to poor children in slums and on the streets has been named 2009 CNN Hero of the Year… sending a clear message to the rest of the world that the Philippines is not just a nation of boxers.

Efren Peñaflorida, the street educator who started a “pushcart classroom” has been named CNN Hero of the Year for 2009. The guy is all over the news. He is very popular right now. He has become so famous, Noynoy Aquino’s popularity is expected to drop by another 15 percent.

Filipino Efren Peñaflorida has been named CNN Hero of the Year. I seriously admire the guy. And people are now talking about his accomplishments. They’re really surprised! They couldn’t believe that Efren has a better track record than Noynoy Aquino.

Congratulations to Efren Peñaflorida, CNN Hero of the Year. Until he made the headlines, many people were not aware of his work. And in case you’re still not familiar with the guy, Efren Peñaflorida is a 28-year-old man from Cavite who was giving education to street kids while Manny Villar was giving away houses to game show contestants.

Filipino Efren Peñaflorida has been named CNN Hero of the Year. Everyone is heaping well-deserved praises on him. He is really popular right now. To give you an idea how famous Efren has become, if he decides to run for president, Loren Legarda is reportedly willing to defect to his party.

Efren Peñaflorida, the street educator who started a “pushcart classroom” has been named CNN Hero of the Year for 2009. Everyone is talking about his work and his feat. In fact, he is so popular right now, Pulse Asia’s latest survey shows that he ranks a notch higher than Gilbert Teodoro.

Efren Peñaflorida has been named CNN Hero of the Year. And why not? Efren’s story is really touching: he started the ‘Kariton Klassroom’ to educate street kids. His story is so inspiring, Mar Roxas has decided to ditch the ‘padyak’ for a pushcart in his next TV ad.

Did you see the awards ceremonies online? The moment Efren was announced the winner was so moving I held back tears while watching. And I’m telling you, I rarely shed a tear. The only time I cried this year was when my friend Chiz Escudero announced that he had no campaign funds to pursue his bid for the presidency.

A hero’s welcome awaits Efren Peñaflorida when he returns to the country. In fact, his supporters have prepared tarpaulins to welcome him. They so wanted to hang the tarps in different locations in Metro Manila but the most visible sites have reportedly been reserved for Bayani Fernando.

Filipino Efren Peñaflorida has been named CNN Hero of the Year. Ten finalists were chosen by CNN and the winner was determined through online voting. Some 2.5 million votes were cast and Efren won. Now here’s what bothers me: DILG Sec. Ronaldo Puno claims he is behind Efren’s successful campaign.

Efren Peñaflorida has been named CNN Hero of the Year. When news of his win came out, street kids in Cavite called him and said, “Mabuhay ka Kuya Efren!” President Arroyo told him, “You’re a true hero!” And Joseph Estrada said, “Inuman na!”

CNN has named Efren Peñaflorida of the Philippines Hero of the Year. Already a top 10 finalist, Efren was shocked when CNN anchor Anderson Cooper declared him the winner. And he was shocked even more when, while accepting the award, Chavit Singson went on stage and stood beside him.

In case you didn’t know, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who handed the award to CNN Hero of the Year Efren Peñaflorida, is gay. Yup Anderson is a homosexual. When the Commission on Elections Second Division heard the news, they urged Efren to return the award because it was “immoral.”

hehe, oo nga… mas okay pa siya kay Noy…

ang sarap ulit ulitin ung nangyari kagabi sa ISANG TANONG kay Noynoy… pang world record ang bilis sa pag sagot… nyahaha

Alex

Nag memorize ng todo si Nonoy kaya ganon, masyadong mabilis ang sagot. I thought it was funny na hindi daw siya magiging corrupt dahil umabot na daw siya sa ganyang edad 50 at malapit na daw siya magretire. lol. Just because matanda na at malapit na mag-retire eh hindi na pwede maging corrupt?? ;)

garju101

His speech was so garbled I failed to understand what he was trying to say. But the worrying part is this, garbled speech is normally the result of scattered thoughts or incoherent thinking. Which begs the question does Noynoy suffer from a sort of mental or thought process disability? Just a thought really.

24 11 2009
garju101

Tanong lang tama ba sabi ba talaga ni Noynoy ito based sa video na yan:

“……eto ho ang sa aking maiiwan lang, ako po ay umabot na ganitong edad nagkaroon ng kapangyarihan kasama ng mga magulang ko at sa akin pong sarili at hindi po natin ginamit yan para sa sariling pang interes o yung sariling kapakanan

bakit ko naman babaguhin sa panahong malapit na ho tayong mag retiro sa larangan ng buhay na ito? ”

Ano ba ibig nyang sabihin na “malapit mag retiro sa larangan ng buhay na ito?”

Ano ba ibig nyang sabihin? Malapit na daw siyang mag-retiro o malapit na syang mawala sa mundo or both? LOL

BTW mahirap gawan ng transcript itong si Noynoy sana huminga man lang sya parang hindi tinuruan ng punctuation nung nasa school pa.

“Ano ba ibig nyang sabihin na “malapit mag retiro sa larangan ng buhay na ito?”

ako’y hindi kasing talino nyo pero ang pagkakaintindi ko yng “sa larangan ng buhay na ito” he is refering to politics…he may not be that eloquent, but presidency is not just about eloquence..

and during cory’s time “low profile lang sya”, unlike the arroyos’..

Thank you for dedicating an entry to Efren Penaflorida. We should honor people who made the best of themselves and their society in spite of their most underprivileged circumstances. And we should not rewarrd people who made nothing of themselves and their society in spite of their overprivileged circumstances.

31 12 2009
lang kawas

i agree with this statement. being rewarded is not a crime. it is an indication that people recognized your good deeds. but if this reward will be given to the covenant of a dwarf president having two big ugly teeth, is a BIG slap. it is a joke, a tale of an idiot signifying nothing.

23 11 2009

yeah!! have to held back tears, kakaiyak. grabeh!! proud moment. and yes to show the world that we are not just a nation crazy for boxing. (because i am not)

wonder who among the politicians will ask efren for an endorsement.

have you watched the “isang tanong” wherein efren asked “paano maging isang bayani?”

haha, so funny

23 11 2009
chiwee

Me too. I dread the thought of him reduced to cheapness when the temptation of fame and fortune will be pushed at his doorstep by the “vultures” around.

This feat of Mr. Penaflorida will hopefully open the eyes of the graft-riddled DECS. Hindi na sila nahiya sa Textbook scandal.

Hay naku Chiwee maiibyerna lang byuti mo sa Dep Ed (previously known as DECS but crap by any other name is still crap). Sad to say it will take a million Efrens to change the state of our nation’s educational system. Darating ang panahon tayo na ang magpapadala ng mga studyante sa Myanmar para mag aral!

At a time like this na we’re all crammed with all these crazies, flak and what have you, he’s indeed a breath of fresh air. I voted for him so many times and each vote was so well worth it. The $100,000 cash grant he got ay gagamitin nya to continue his advocacy and help more kids. Para sa ‘kin, siya ang tunay na champion! :)

Congrats to Efren. Wonder if Lito Atienza will also be fetching him at the airport and prepare a motorcade for him which starts at the DENR compound.

Speaking of Pilipinas Shirt. PH, have you noticed that Bench ( a well established company has also imitated the design of My Pilipinas of C2 Collezione? I thought imitations are being sold only at tiangge and divi )

Same here, I was so glad he won, I devoted time to vote for him online, sayang ang $100,000 in addition to the $25,000 he already won as one of ten. The $100,000 will go a long way to advance his worthy advocacy. Education is a major factor to solve poverty. I’m doubly proud too because he’s a Caviteno ( I was born in Cavite City and studied there up to grade three).

EFREN PEÑAFLORIDA FOR SENATOR/PRESIDENT!!!

The Partido Oportunista is holding talks to Peñaflorida but he is unlikely to endorse the party nor anyone.

Dapat walang pasok sa pag-uwi ni Efren. Para lahat pwedeng magwelcome sa motorcade niya.

Ay Oo, DAPAT MAY MOTORCADE

Efren Penaflorida has become so popular I wouldn’t be surprised if we soon see a picture of him with Manny Villar with both their hands raised.

Seriously though, he was interviewed today on TV Patrol and asked if was thinking
of entering politics. He emphatically said, “NO!”

At last, we now have a modern day hero who, despite the accolades, is not blinded by politics.

Sana mayroon din kina lito atienza (nireserve na ang space tabi ni efren sa parade) , eddie villanueva (5 million votes hindi 2.5m) at ebdane (papacemento lahat ng dadaanan ng kariton klasroom). Mikey arroyo and vicki belo will be real challenges…

I agree with chiwee and mountain top experience. Efren’s feat will have this tendency to be trivialized by those publicity-hungry politicians and ratings-conscious nonsense talk shows. Naiinis talaga ako pag masyadong hinihimay himay hanggang sa pinakamaliit na detalye hanggang sa nawawala na sa tunay kahulugan ng karangalang nakamit ng grupo ni efren.

Kung tutuusin, di na nahiya ang mga politikong magtatangkang makisawsaw sa tagumpay ng samahan nina efren. his feat only goes to show how desperate these young people are in addressing the education needs of this country which the very first *@&$=!~/ place, this is what these publicity-hungry crocodiles were supposedly voted for.

Hinahigh blood na talaga ako sa expected na pag eeksana na naman ng mga kupal!!!

Pero bago pa ako tuluyang makunsumi sa mga taong yan, I would like to extend my sincerest congratulations to Efren’s Dynamic Teen Company, you are a perfect example that not all Filipino youth are consumed by hypes of gadgets and telenovelas. Maraming Pilipinong Kabataan pa rin ang nag iisip at may magandang layunin para sa kapwa.

At para sa ating lahat na walang humpay na nagvote online, mabuhay tayo sa time and effort. Maaasahan talaga pinoy sa ganitong cause. Dito natin massively naipapakita support natin. Right Jasmine Trias?

23 11 2009
chiwee

as expected my friend, they just did it!

tonight’s news read the honorable senate has passed another resolution to honor again the honor they bestowed upon him last week when he was among the top ten in CNN’s list. and there were the names of some honorable senators na wala lang, pa-comment comment about him, hailing him, praising him, mga lintek nila, as if hindi natin alam na nakiki-ride on lang sila sa tunay na kagitingan nitong Mr. Efren Penaflorida.

expect tarpaulin posters greeting him for the feat he has achieved. expect those posters to be printed with what else, names and pictures of our “honorable” politicians whom these greetings will come from.

kaka-high blood.

They are in different fields with different standards of performance and set of rules. But they both transcended the constraints imposed by poverty and outshoned their competitors who were born and grew up in much better circumstances.

Unneeded homophobia aside, I really wish more people were proud of him because of his achievements, not because of his ethnicity. He’s Filipino, yes, but that’s not why he won the award.

Will u please check first the Comelec resolution on rejecting LADLAD accreditation before you do your ranting……This is related to it.

And remember…..this is a satire….political joke……..ang mapikon talo.

Ok, I didn’t want to do a rant, but I’m going into rant mode: what kind of sick f***ks are at Comelec to urge Efren to give back his award because Anderson was gay? It’s not like the trophy had a f**king “homosexual virus” on it, but apparently the far right in this world seem to think so. Is politics really this screwed up in the Philippines? I mean, I hear tidbits on TFC, and it’s depressing, but wow, really?

Yah! Ang sayah-sayah! :-) :-) :-)

Eto tuloy, nangungunsime ako kung iboboto ko ba sya for the sake of “art”, for the sake of old times’ sake (heckling dito sa blog) or for the sake of “stupidity”.

Pero bilib ako kay idol LL, ha. Hindi sya nag jump ship kagaya ng iba. Sabi nya last night, loyal daw talaga siya sa administration party.

Yeah, I’m “new” here. I was linked here from the CNN article. However, it doesn’t make me stupid, and you don’t have to act like a bunch of condescending elitists. A simple “it was a joke” would have sufficed, thanks.

And I’m not gay, I just can’t stand homophobia. You can be not gay and be a supporter of gay rights, you know.

At the risk of being adorned with more inane insults as you all have proven yourselves capable, the reason I didn’t understand the joke was because this is my first time on this blog, and having no previous experience, I didn’t understand the context of the joke, that coupled with my limited knowledge of the goings-on there in the Philippines.

But all I really needed was for someone to tell me it was a joke, really. I don’t really think calling me stupid was necessary. I mean, you guys really know how to draw in those potential readers.

Oh, but I forgot, you selectively judge by intellectual capacity.

Why is it that they are comparing the tract record of Sen. Noy-noy Aquino to Mr. Penaflorida?.At the very first place Mr. Penaflorida is not running in any position,i am not againts this “hero” at this time,wehat i wanted is justice,for comparing isnt fare at all specially
n the part of Mr Sen. Aquino.

Wow ang bilis niya sumagot sa isang tanong. Kaso baka kasingbagal naman ang sagot niya sa pagiging autistic, hacienda Luisita at SCTEX. Regarding kay Anderson Cooper, he is really gay. Sa CNN naman, bagsak pa rin ang rating niya compared sa Fox News Channel. Mas enjoy ako manood ng Fox News kahit super biased ito against kay Negrobama.
