Unwary of Du30’s severe warning


(Enlightenment—Passage of the Day)

Q.) What did Jesus tell to the man who wanted to follow him, but first let him go back home to bury his father who just died?

A. ) “Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead. Your duty is to go and preach about the Kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:60) Email:



By the months of February and March, our city councilors will have a heyday, once again, for their continuous out-of-town travels-- most of which have something to do with their being officers and members of their so-called PCL (Philippine Councilors’ League). And when they found it out they have their upcoming travel skeds awaiting them, they whooped it up. The next thing they did, as expected, they approved those travels nay anyone interposing an objection.

No one from them seemed wary at all of the severe warning that President Duterte recently issued to all top gov’t officials fond of making their out-of-town travels discovered later on as mere junketsthat only squander people’s money.

They just don’t give a shit!


On Friday, February 9, the city will observe the Dia de (Sen.) Roseller T. Lim to commemorate his 103rd birthday anniversary. The city government has reportedly lined up various activities to highlight the late Senator’s feats and accomplishments--being the first and the only Zamboangueño ever elected in the halls of the Senate. Lim served both as Congressman and as Senatorin the old  Congress that spanned from 1947 to 1963.

February 9 is also very dear to us, the Feliciano family from San Jose Cawa-Cawa, because this same day marks our matriarch (Vicenta Orinza Feliciano)’s 97th birthday, too. Our mother is still very much alive and kicking. Her secret? “Manda lang cun auntie huga mahjong,” advised cousin Dr. Tony “Bonjing” Feliciano.

What makes more memorable about my mom’s birthday to that of the late Sen. Lim, is the special thought I learned later from them(my parents), that when my late father Mario Jalon Feliciano, Sr. married my 17-year old mom then, one of their principal sponsors was the late Sen. Lim, himself. My dad was a year younger than the late Senator, hence, they could be real buddies in those years.

With all modesty, my late dad was part of history as his heroic feat during the war days when the Japanese forces occupied ZC in the early 1940s, was among thosefeatured in the WW2 book written by prominent historian Roni Bautista. His name was enshrined as the first guerilla leader to have killed a host of Japanese soldiers who tried to invade their hidden stronghold set up in Muruc, Upper Pasonanca in those dark days of the Japanese invasion of our country.

My dad was the first elected President of the Philippine Veterans Federation-ZC Chapter, in the 1970s until his untimely demise on March 11, 1979, due to a massive heart attack. I miss him so much. (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
