            Dinagyang is an annual festival celebration in honor of Santo Niño held every fourth Sunday of January. Dinagyang started in 1966 with a religious activity honoring the little child Jesus or what we call Santo Niño. In 1967, the replica of the original Sto. Niño was brought to Iloilo City from Cebu. The first Ati tribal dance competition took place in 1970 with Madjapahit Tribe of Compania Maritima winning the first title. The word Dinagyang came from the root word "dagyang" which means merrymaking and was first coined by the late broadcaster Pacifico Sudario in 1977 to mark the start of the festivities. Since then, the festival gained popularity and fame throughout the world getting the attention of the foreign media such as CNN, BBC, National Geographic Channel, MSNBC, TV Asahi of Japan and television stations from Germany and Hong Kong starting in 1998 and 1999 to cover the Dinagyang Festival for their own viewers and also make some souvenir calendars of their respective companies.

OMG Yahoo! Co-Founder Jerry Yang Left Company Share Your Wealth With Me

                Just few days ago, Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo! with David Filo left the company he built up and loved for more than 17 years. Yang also served in the company's board of directors since March 1995. The original name of Yahoo! is "Jerry and David's Guide to the World Wide Web"
          Yang owns 3.6 percent stake of the Sunnyvale, California-based company. A controversial Microsoft buyout was rejected by the company on January, 2009. I hope Jerry Yang let me share some of his wealth or maybe work with Yahoo.

Worst Place Of People Doing Evil

              There is a a worst place where evil people lives. Kabukya (real name withheld) is a small town where some worthless, hopeless, desperate people constantly do evils every day annoying, pestering,disturbing and even destroying people's lives due to envy, jealousy and hate and most especially in the where some evil masters the worst of its kind live. There are lots of men who are drug addicts and under the influence of heavy drugs. They are either drug pushers or drug users. You will know about them if they make annoying noise anytime of the day and a caravan of motorcycles plying during the night. They are also trouble makers sometimes, killing, shooting and fighting with other people. Some old bastards are making noise in Dak St. (real name withheld). and a legitimate mentally young woman is wrecking havoc dragging everyone to be as insane as she is. They always make sure to find ways to envy and always finds a reason to hate people, too. They always make some very loud noises just to get the attention of others and you can easily recognize them. If they cannot make noise, they throw insults, eavesdropping evil words, cursing, ranting, berating and embarrass or harass people. They rejoices and easily believes in anything bad, evil or crappy ideas, events or situations but hardly believes in anything good instead they are easily angered and bitter to any good things that they take their wrath on other people by harming both physically or emotionally. They worship Satan and the devil's deity. In fact, some people already sold their souls to Satan long time ago.
             Some people in Manila, Makati and surrounding cities, on the other hand, are so jerk, envious, insecure and desperate that if you forgot about their evil ways for a long time they will remind you of it by annoying and insulting you in an attempt to distract you and harm you emotionally. These are mostly girls who are working in call centers mostly smoking, drinking or has some vices, in the media, Philippines male and female celebrities like actors and actresses and prominent figures like in the politics. They look so pathetic that if you don't mind them they will do anything to get your attention like eavesdropping. They are sarcastic, discriminating, belittling and even saying stupid or dumb to people so easy while they look good on themselves as perfect and flawless with no traces of mistakes or stupidity. In short, they say anything bad about a person when it is completely inappropriate and non-sense for those particular people.
They react harshly on things they don't know. They behave frantically, irrationally and without reason - peculiar and the worst retarded people on earth showcase their unusual behavior or acts like nobody else in the world except the untouched, uncivilized and most remote tribes around the corners of the world in which the people of this town and some places in the Philippines can be categorized with this kind of tribes or group of people. I curse those people and places so bad with a fiery thought on mind that evil must come to an end and I prayed that me and my loved ones will be protected and be saved from these evil people doing Satanic acts and behaviors and also I prayed that I have to leave these places as soon as possible to be saved from the chastisement and punishment that will come upon on these places and people.
