    The Right of the Accused

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 30, 2014 The Right of the Accused A sound body, makes a sound mind. This is a necessity for all, in all professions. A healthy physique and mentality is an assurance of the capability to make the most logical moves in whatever capacity. But, of course, this can only happen to an individual who knows what discipline, both as an individual and as a component of society, is all about. Atty. Nerio Dote Zamora […]

    Woman Unfettered

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 23, 2014 Woman Unfettered Interviewing Anne Mariquit Derekito-Oppus (ADO) is never a boring experience. Quick to the draw, in steadily clear voice, her answers to my questions are always concise and devoid of unnecessary euphemisms usually resorted to by personalities of lesser confidence and ability. She speaks with a brilliant and progressive mind. Candid inside and out, she exudes that charisma characterizing a family orientation well imbibed and well advocated. In this DYRD-ZD interview […]

    A Success Story

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 16, 2014 A Success Story Thousands of Boholanos migrate to many parts of the world, especially to USA, the fabled land of milk and honey. Many have succeeded in their quest for greener pasture in varied endeavors. Many end up selling pots and pans, or care-giving. In a place where blue-collar jobs earn more dollars, the prospects are endless. Knowing Florentino Cosare Arcamo, Jr. (FCA) is befriending a big-time Boholano in the networking business […]

    Ageless

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 9, 2014 Ageless A survivor. That’s how she sees herself. Others see in her an ageless beauty, her timelessness uncaused by a magician-concocted elixir, but by the natural turn of events – of triumphs and upheavals she faced uncowed and undaunted, even by an extremely conventional public that, at times, sounded hypocritical. How she has retained that whistle-bait figure, while many others younger in years laboriously shaunter in voluptuous massivity, is anybody’s guess. How […]

    What Is A Good Lawyer?

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 2, 2014 What Is A Good Lawyer? Lawyering is a profession so competitive that only a few have the monopoly of clients. A good Lawyer is the one who wins his cases in court – this is an extensively accepted public perception. He who cannot get the nod of a Judge usually languishes in a solitary charade, a Don Quixote fighting the windmills. The loser who tries to assuage the debacle by telling his […]

    Walking the Talk (Last of 2 parts)

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 31, 2013 Walking the Talk (Last of 2 parts) The legacy his forebears handed down to Congressman Arthur Cua Yap (ACY) transcends generations of tenacity and endurance reflective of his ancestors’ bravery in facing all odds life could bring; never cowed by atrocities perpetrated by self-proclaimed prophets of doom who only see the side of the bread that is buttered for their enjoyment, unethically unmindful of adverse effects their discriminatory and derogatory innuendos could […]

    Walking the Talk (First of 2 Parts)

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 24, 2013 Walking the Talk (First of 2 Parts) Trying to interview Congressman Arthur Cua Yap (ACY) is next to impossible, what with his hectic schedule and job that seldom peg him in one spot. As the incumbent Congressman of the Third District of Bohol, he has to be in Metro Manila most of the time and, if he is in Bohol, with his constituents even in the remotest Barangays. It is in personally […]

    His Brother’s Brother

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 17, 2013 His Brother’s Brother The name Borja is a prime exponent in Bohol politics since Boholanos commenced practicing their right of suffrage. An exhaustive survey along this line would reveal that in the past elections (whether it is in the Barangay, Municipal, City, or Provincial level) a candidate consanguinity related to the name had figured out prominently in the polls. For instance, in the forthcoming May election, there are at least 5 affiliated […]

    Earning His Spurs

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 10, 2013 Earning His Spurs Personal growth and development, when derived from one’s career, are a double-yummy that elicit confidence and a promise of more good tidings. Venzencio Buhion Arcamo (VBA) is a Lawyer who thought that the courts of justice would be his abode the whole of his functional life. Little did he know that a sudden twist would make him venture into a more chaotic realm. He was a contented person savoring […]

    “I am Pro-life!”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos March 3, 2013 “I am Pro-life!” The coming of Agustinus Varquez Gonzaga (AVG) to the local political scene stirred interest when he was able to convince another Mayoralty candidate to become his running-mate as Vice Mayor. Earlier there was not much hullabaloo, considering that he was based in Metro Mania for several years. Absence does not make the heart grow fonder; it makes the heart forget. Thus, his needed to give himself more exposure, which […]
