Tropical Typhoon Ondoy and Jacque Bermejo

On September 26, 2009. The tropical typhoon Ondoy paved over Manila leaving 300,000 Filipinos homeless with nothing. Another typhoon Jacque Bermejo roars on Facebook.

Update: If she knew that it was a hacked account a long time ago, WHY DIDN’T SHE ASKED IT TO BE TERMINATED? Come to think of it, she had ample time to do so, and now, nagpalusot nalang ng ganito? Hindi naman po bobo ang mga pinoy, sorry Jacque, the damage has been done. (Sept 30, 10:15)

Update: If it truly isn’t she, then fine, but I won’t remove the content though. Let’s put it this way, my message is dedicated to whoever posted that status update, if it wasn’t she, then it isn’t for her. (Sept 29, 23:30)

Update: Death toll is up to 200 now. (Sept 29, 15:25)

I’m sorry for not updating the blog these past couple of days, I got stuck with some game that I’ve played all week long, in exception to the side-task that I had this weekend when tropical typhoon Ondoy left more than 300,000 fellow Filipinos homeless (it was on the 26th of September, it was our monthsary). I know how it feels to have someone close to you in danger, because my uncle resides right in the heart of Marikina City, one of the most damaged locations in Luzon where Ondoy has let out his rage.

I should be lucky to have only felt such feeling though, unlike the hundreds of thousand of Filipinos that are homeless right now and seek refuge and help from the more fortunate people, like you and I. I already donated my upcoming Adsense Money (borrowed from my mother, which I’ll repay when my Adsense Cash is here :p). What have you contributed?

If you think what happened to Cagayan de Oro earlier this year was a huge, huge tragedy, then, I don’t know where you’ll classify this kind of disaster that happened in Luzon. The death toll is up to 140 as far as I can remember and the number of still missing people has gone up as well since the last update. I’m totally speechless and find no words to describe the tragedy that has happened to my Kababayan in the Manila Area. I so wish that I could help them, but I think the little donation (my adsense money) is all that I can offer them right now. I have to say, that we, people from Mindanao (Davao in particular) are very lucky to not have experienced such disastrous calamity since decades; as my mother points back to early 90s or so when Davao had pretty much the same experience.

With this, I’d like to encourage all readers of this blog, all the visitors who drop by this post to contribute anyhow to the less fortunate people in Luzon. They are in need of your help. If they’ve needed help before, I just can’t imagine in how dire need of assistance these people are right now :(

Tropical Typhoon Ondoy knows no mercy, so do some people

My friend had a very interesting post where he noted a person who stands out from the many others concerned about the situation in Manila, she literally contradicts the human law of nature, the ten commandments and every single law and rule ever existing. (now that was a  lame statement) But it was dedicated to a lame person as well. Would you believe it, that after all the news, pictures and videos scattered on the internet and seen on national television (and probably international channels too), there are these people who just don’t have the heart to feel something for others, no heart, no mercy, no nothing, simple assholes.

Ondoy and Jacque Bermejo know no mercy

Here’s one woman who said:

Backed by another hilarious, (sad to say) human being who said:

Too these two and all people who support their statements, I so hope that you all, most especially Jacque Bermejo and Flex Naval will burn in hell for all eternity forever and ever and ever. I bet that even Satan would’ve been more helpful than all of you in this kind of situation. I wonder what you people would say if you’re in their shoes. Asses! (I really know nothing better to say)

I leave you a link where you can read the whole story about Jacque Bermejo and her fellas, as well as information for places and hot lines for your donations.

Here, for more information

Oh, and I would also like to commend the whole Filipino blogoshpere to stop thinking about money and getting good posts to help the victims :) Disasters can really unite the people, huh?


ps: Two Months ago, when I was still in Legaspi, around the same date a typhoon paved over Manila as well, malas ang araw namin ah :(

    May comment na po from dubai police to verify yung claim ni Ms. Jacque. please see… SO NOW, THE PEOPLE WHO WERE QUICK TO JUDGE AND MAKE HASTY COMMENTS TO DESTROY SOMEBODY’S REPUTATION INCLUDING THOSE WHO TOOK TIME TO WRITE MS. BERMEJO’S BOSS (attention Mr. Cid), WILL THEY HAVE THE BALLS AND GUTS TO APOLOGIZE TO THE REAL JACQUELINE BERMEJO OR STILL CLAIM THEIR INNOCENCE AND MAKE EXCUSES NA UNBELIEVABLE PA RIN YUNG STATEMENTS NYA WHEN SHE WAS CLEARING HER NAME? WILL THEY STILL SIDE WITH THE PERSON BEHIND THE MALICIOUS ACTION (ayun yung taong yun masarap ang tulog habang tayo nag-aaway-away at may nasira ang pangalan)? Pwede po ba next time maging maingat na po tayo sa paghambalos ng tao? Ganun din sa naglabas ng mga blog na ikokonsider agad na news and fact ang mga nababasa sa net. Sa bandang huli kay God naman tayo magiging accountable eh. Yung taong gumawa ng kasamaan, yung hacker at posers and habulin natin wag po ang inosente. And makatutulong po na tumingin sa salamn at magmuni-muni kung anong character ang ipinakita natin sa pagkakataong ito. Baka naman we have become worse than the actual person who made the malicious comment, kung sino man sya. What is left for us to do is help the real Jacque Bermejo out of this traumatic experience na di nya kagustuhan and lets exert our efforts na lang to help each other na makabawi sa nawala dahil kay typhoon Ondoy. Pati na po magdasal since meron na naman pong bagyo na darating. Yun lang po.

  • someone from dubai who knows her

    Robeen of Casaprestige is not her boss but her boyfriend. And she is not employed there nor is he. Dont’ believe everything they say… Good luck to Jacky though…

    • Dave B

      Gaano mo nga ba siya kakilala? Nagtatanong lang po. Uy, minsan masama ang balik sa taong sinungaling, kahit pa nakakapagtago sa ilalim ng ibang pangalan dito sa net. Ang alam ko, all-knowing ang Diyos maging ang mga sinusulat natin dito sa net. Esep-esep!

  • truthseeker

    Jacque Bermejo finally released a statement cleaning her name. Here's the link:

    —i don't want to judge anymore. kaya kung sino man 'yong walang pusong nagcomment about what happened to our country, bahala na lang ang may kapal sa inyo. Hindi kayo mga Pilipino dahil ang Pinoy may pagmamahal 'yan sa bayan. Nakakaawa kayo.

    I received a flash news on Jacque’s story, Dubai Police Statement on Jacque Bermejo Case. I think this will further prove her innocence.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts, but nah, I don't think too many Filipinos will be kept busy about the Ugly Yubin case. What hurts most about all the flames and inhumane posts are those coming from our very own kababayan, not those from people of another country.

  • don20

    Hope not to be hit so hard…. Again!!!

    …prayer would be the best thing we can give to our fellow Filipino people, who were struck by the typhoon “Ondoy”
    Especially those who had lost their houses, properties and love ones….=(

    Now, another dilemma is coming up… typhoon “Pepeng” is now approaching the country….lets all pray Guys!!!

    Its so sad to see our nation suffering from such calamities… but it heals our hearts knowing that in the midst of difficulty, we are being united and ready to share what we have to others,and to help out those in need!!!!

    Do take care always!!!!
    Set aside the personal clashes… to all the students, instead of enjoying your postponed school days… try to help… your prayers are needed as well….

  • don20

    …pray lang tayo guys… hope everything will be alright… May the Almighty God guide and protect us all the way…

    Yngats lagi people!!!

    To Jacque and Flex… you just take care guys and hope that you are always safe… if everything about your comments really came fro you, well hope you’ll learn to love others or at least care!!! if you can’t, better zip your mouth!

    wag kang masyadong magbibitaw ng salita na di mo alam ang kahihinatnan..lalo na ang matatamaan ay maraming tao na kababayan mo..mag isip ka na muna ha..tunta iha puta

    There are a lot of people out there who can be considered as psychotics that will do everything just to destroy a person's name. Now that she released her official statement, all the people who bashed her should apologize. What if it was you who made that insensitive comment? What if you have no proof backing you like she has? According to her statement, she's an educated lady. Paano kung ikaw yung nasira, at nagkataon pa na di ka marunong magsalita ng tuluyang ingles at di ka nagtapos sa UP? Your name is violated in a horrible way.

    And to all the people who said if the account was hacked, why didn't the hacker post more and more comments? Common sense. They started tracking the hacker, so obviously, the hacker wouldn't do anything anymore. His/her work is done. Why risk capture?

    If she was really the one who posted that comment, then it'll return to her big time. But not only her, the people who bashed her is not at all different from her or the hacker. You judge the person and condemn her to hell. You're the same.

    We all have no right to judge. Leave it to God Almighty.

    "Too these two and all people who support their statements, I so hope that you all, most especially Jacque Bermejo and Flex Naval will burn in hell for all eternity forever and ever and ever."

    Why? May katotohanan naman yung sinabi nila diba? You just have to admit their wisdom. The problem with Filipinos is that we're so self-righteous.

    "Since then, Jackie have been bombarded with hate-mails, blogs, comments, phone calls and even threats causing her and her family with sleepless nights and a degraded reputation. This prompted her to request facebook to deactivated the account and file a formal complaint with the Dubai Police."

  • YELYAN_280308

    a simple and sincere apology from Jacque Bermejo is quite enough pra mtigil n ung issue about sa knya at pra nrin matigil ung hatred ng mga kababayan ntin sa knya.. i know its hard to say sorry whether my fault man cia or ala.. and hu knows nag english barok lng cia tlg pra nga nman once na nbisto cia pwd nia idefend na UP grad cia, marketing exec. cia and fluent cia wen it comes to english language.. maraming why's, how's, and hu sa issue na 'to.. so dpt marunong tau kumilatis.. sori n lng for her kc cia ung natyempuhan ng galit ng mga tao.. gudluck n lng Jacque..

  • YELYAN_280308

    and ang isa pa pong nakakatawa bout ky Jacque is tinago nia p ung muka nia sa cam as if nman napagpyestahan n ung pix mu sa net.. and ung iba nga bka memorize na ung muka nia ehehe!! and kung tlgang sincere ka na indi ikw un bkit ayw mu ipakita ang face mu? dpt nga mas humarap ka sa camera pra mkita ng tao sa mga mata mu na ala ka kasalanan at inosente ka.. anu b ang dpt mung ikahiya in the first place? so, advice ku lng sau next time na ur having an interview better show up the real u and ur face pra maniwala tlg sau ung mga viewers..

    There are really insensitive people. That’s a fact of life. Nobody’s denying the fact that we have our share of fault. Nevertheless, this is not the right time to point fingers at. A lot died. Many lost their properties and houses. If this ever happens to us and someone tells us that we simply deserve this, how will this make us feel?

    The Philippines is still in need of more donations for the victims of the 2 recent typhoons which hit the country the past 2 weekends.

    An American Entrepreneur already offered help by giving away $50 each to chosen people in the Philippines who are personally extending help to their own relatives, family members, friends, neighbors, and even strangers who are greatly affected by the strong storms. He even created a site that gave way for soliciting help around the globe. He has started the movement. Let us offer help in any way we can.

    No amount is too little when it comes from the heart.
