May Stage IV lung cancer pala si Madam Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Ito ang lantaran niyang hinayag kahapon. This is very shocking and sad news. Bilang mga aboganda (walang kokontra), we have all idolized Senator Miriam, hindi lang sa angking talino sa larangan ng batas, kundi maging sa wit at sense of humor niya. Iilan lang ba ang lawyer/politician na kayang magbitiw ng bentang pick-up lines the same way Senadora Miriam does???
In fact, kahapon, kahit malungkot ang balitang isiniwalat niya, nagawa pa rin niyang maging positibo at magpangiti.
“I have cancer of the left lung, which makes it difficult for me to breathe. I think you have noticed that for the past years, I’ve always had difficulty. I’ve always had shortness of breath.”
“Today, chemotherapy has been reduced to a tablet. This tablet is called molecular targeting. This is some sort of magic tablet so that I won’t have to take anything and in effect, it will give me all the effects of chemotherapy without the side effects. So I hope to be able to see you in six weeks, fully cured of cancer.”
“I have a very rare condition called behavioral mutancy. By themselves, the cells in my left lungs develop a genetic mutation that makes them impermeable to cancer and which gives them the energy to fight off cancer.”
“It is not spreading. In my case, they are very well behaved. I believe in discipline all my life. Even my cancer cells are showing excellent discipline.”
“I don’t know what the reactions of my enemies are. Maybe they’ll be happy because I might die and then they could get rid of me. On the other hand, I might survive and I’ll get rid of them.”
“I am very excited. I said yes, I have cancer. Now, I am entering another dimension of human life. That has always been my attitude.”

Eto pa ang ilan sa malulupit niyang pick-up lines at jokes.
Girl: Saan tayo magdi-date sa Valentines?
Boy: Sa sementeryo.
Girl: Bakit doon?
Boy: Para mapatunayan kong patay na patay ako sa’yo.
Alam niyo ba ang iba pang tawag sa Valentine’s day? Para sa malungkot na single,ang tawag dito ay Single’s Awareness Day. Para sa mga masaya na single, ang tawag dito ay Single’s Independence Day. Pero sa mga walang pakialam, ang tawag dito ay Thursday.
Did you know that an earthworm has five hearts, whereas an octopus has two hearts? Kaya kung may kilala ka na nagmamahal ng higit sa dalawa, tanungin mo kung anong klaseng hayop sila.
Kapag ikaw ay nagmamahal pero sasaktan mo rin lang naman, hamunin mo na lang ng suntukan.
Ang taong nagmamahal nang tunay ay parang matalinong estudyante na kumukuha ng exam. Hindi siya tumitingin sa iba kahit nahihirapan na.
Para sa mga single, umuwi nang maaga mula sa school o sa trabaho para isipin nila may date ka.
Kailangan gumaling kayo, Sen. Miriam! Ayaw po naming manood ng Senate hearings kung hindi kayo present!
Be strong, Senator Miriam, as you have always been. Kami naman po, we’ll be praying. 🙂
