Gawat and free movies for the oldies


Photobucket The crowd and the traffic during the 4-day sale at SM proof that there is no such thing as “gawat.”

Gawat is that time of the year when farmers are supposedly without money and are awaiting the time for them to harvest their crop.

SM management and tenants were surprised at the turn over of people from Pangasinan, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija who came to take advantage of the low prices on different items on sale.

Tatang Henry Sy once said that he was building malls as one stops shops for people to go to even during times of economic difficulties.

Tatang’s contention is that, in a tropical country such as the Philippines , people can enjoy the airconditioning in the mall as they stroll, eat, watch a movie or just go window shopping.

Science para sa sapat na pagkain


Photobucket Kasamang Roy, mahirap paniwalaan na ang isang ipinanganak sa uring mayaman na kumandidato bilang papalit sa magre-retire na congressman sa isang distrito sa Pangasinan ay magsisilbi sa uri ng mahihirap.

Alam mo ba na ayon sa latest survey dito sa ating bansa mga 17% na ang nagugutom nating mga kababayan dahil sa epekto ng kawalan ng hanapbuhay?

Ang isang kilo ng sibuyas ay nagkakahalaga ng isang daang piso (P100.00)!

Ang kalagayan ng ating mga kababayan ay kung hindi man malnourished ay undernourished at ang kalagayang ito ay pinatingkad ng kakulangan sa bigas noong isang taon.

Bakit hindi natin magawang mag-produce ng sapat na pagkain para sa lahat ng Pilipino?

Bakit kailangang may nagugutom?

Ang 17 percent ng 90 milyong Pilipino ay 15.3 million nagugutom araw-araw.

Finally, a Pangasinan full-length movie


By Gabriel Cardinoza
Philippine Daily Inquirer

FINALLY, a full-length movie in the Pangasinan language has been produced, thanks to the pioneering work of Christopher Gozum, a multiawarded independent filmmaker, who is the movie’s director, producer, scriptwriter, sound and video editor, and colorist.

Shot entirely in Pangasinan, “Anacbanua (The Child of the Sun),” will have its premier at the 11th Cinemanila International Film Festival on October 15-25.

The one-hour, 44-minute film is among the finalists in the Digital Lokal Section (Philippine digital films) of the competition.

Gozum, who was born and raised in Bayambang town, said he used the Pangasinan language in the film because it is the breadth and soul of every Pangasinense.
