It’s the season of self-proclaimed psychics and fortune-tellers again. Last year, psychic Danny Atienza predicted that President Aquino’s term would be cut short. Vice President Binay, he said, would replace him in 2013. And Binay was like, “Hmpf! Paasa!”
Also last year, Hong Kong-based feng shui master Joseph Chau Kam Shing said President Aquino would finally fall in love in 2013. Unfortunately, the woman he fell in love with didn’t feel the same.
Interviewed by the Philippine Daily Inquirer in January 2013, psychic Danny Atienza said President Aquino would meet in 2013 the love of his life who’s “bright,” “beautiful,” and “of good breeding.” In short, ‘false hope.’
Danny Atienza also predicted that a former Philippine president would die in 2013. Atienza was dead wrong.
Of former president Joseph Estrada who was then running for mayor of Manila, psychic Danny Atienza predicted, “I assure him, 99 percent, he would lose to Alfredo Lim.” But Mayor Lim lost the race and Atienza lost his credibility – 99 percent of it.
In the Chinese calendar, 2014 is the Year of the Wooden Horse. Vice President Binay was born under that animal sign. Feng shui experts say this will be a great year for the vice president. Sought for reaction, Mar Roxas said, “I don’t believe in feng shui.”
As of 6AM, January 1, authorities reported that there were almost 900 cases of fireworks- and firecracker-related injuries. President Aquino insists the figure is much lower than that.
Despite the Health Department’s much-publicized ‘Iwas Paputok’ campaign, the number of fireworks- and firecracker-related injuries soared to more than 800 this year. President Aquino is blaming Katy Perry.
A Filipino taxi driver in Las Vegas was rewarded $10,000 for being an honest man. That’s nothing compared to a number of Filipino lawmakers who are rewarded fresh terms for being thieves.
Out of the initial 200,000, the number of people who applied for a one-way trip to planet Mars has been narrowed down to 1,058. The bad news is no Filipino politician made it.
