we first talked about Mar Roxas and Rody Duterte, my friend JC and I revisited the who-is-better issue. I feel that this conversation is a significant "level up" from the last one, and you may notice that it's significantly more heated than the last. However, this is just a debate: we are reasoning out, and we are not taking this personally, at all.

Many of Manuel “Mar” Roxas’ supporters share a common belief that his accomplishments dramatically overshadow his deadly and costly mistakes. They say that his grievous errors – Yolanda, Mamasapano, etc. – pale in comparison to “everything else that he has accomplished”. But what exactly is “everything else”?

Was Mar’s way of describing his educational background confusing? A source suggests it is.
There’s a raging online debate about the right way his words should be interpreted. Judging from readers comments and tweets from pro-Admin personalities, it appears that Roxas’ supporters insist that Roxas was honest about it. They say that the use those words do not really sow confusion. It’s just that many Filipinos are unfamiliar with Wharton jargon.

Was Mar Roxas intentionally vague about his educational attainment just to bloat his credentials? Because what he did was like bragging about a ₱ 2 million SUV that turns out to be a Mitsubishi Montero.

Together with my friend, Mon Cualoping (also in photo is one of TV5’s correspondents, Mon Gualvez), I was there when Rody Duterte was officially proclaimed as PDP-Laban’s presidential bet. Least to say, I feel very lucky to be part of what was going to be a monumental event.
With a bit of apprehension (because I felt it was disrespectful, but what the heck), I took this photo (that one in the middle of the collage) because I knew it was going to be very symbolic and would come in handy one of these days. To me, this gesture was all too exciting.
