The Clients Change But Sex Trade Remains

Fields Ave, the main pedestrian drag in Angeles City, is a legacy of the time when this row of run-down bars was the romping ground of restless young American airmen stationed at Clark Air Base.

The US base closed in 1992, and the often-randy airmen have gone with it. But the girls, the sex, the round-the-clock raunchiness remain. Only the customers have changed.At a club called Koko Yoko, balding men with bulging bellies sit at an outdoor bar, sipping beers and leering at the young girls who pass on the model’s runway gone wrong called Fields Ave.

Many of the girls weigh barely more than 40 kilograms, their high heels pushing their almost adolescent bodies at perverse angles. There are cross-dressers fooling no one, calling out to men with tattoos, Popeye forearms and gray hair on their backs.

Some men pass by with girls one-third their age, swinging their hands together like a couple on a first date. Others cavort with three girls at once, the women all clutching their client like daughters competing for Daddy’s attention.A thriving sex-tourism trade attracts foreign customers by the thousands in search of something they cannot find back home: girls young enough to be their granddaughters selling sex for the price of a burger and fries.

Most are bused up from Manila, an hour away, on golf and sex package deals. This is no quasi-innocent boys’ night out. Rather, it’s a single-minded realm of weary-looking loners on a resolute hunt that smacks of feeding an addiction.

Many are ex-military men reliving former glories, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper wannabes, some gathering at the local American Legion post before embarking into the night.

There is a one-armed man, a retiree with a walker and another dapper gentleman who strolls along in a dress shirt, twirling an umbrella, whistling a private tune.

Many head to the bars with the red-light special called “The Early-Release”: Buy your girl 10 drinks and she’s yours, no questions asked.

Nobody asks questions here. Nobody gives a name. Credit cards are a joke; who wants to leave behind any economic traces that they ever set foot here?

A young dancer in tight red hip-hugger pants and matching sports bra acknowledges that Fields Ave may not be pretty, but the money is good.

She rolls her eyes at two overweight men who pass by looking like large reptiles dressed in children’s clothing.

Sure, the sex is disgusting, she says. But at least it’s over quickly.

Outside Koko Yoko, the doorman, a 33-year-old paraplegic, perches on a wheeled wooden pallet. He says his father was an American who once served at Clark, his mother a local girl. He contracted polio when he was 11 and has worked here ever since. The street, he says, takes care of him.

Nearby, a saggy-faced Australian lights a cigarette. He’s been in Angeles City for about a month, his last stop on a sex circuit from Bangkok, Thailand, to Manila after getting laid off from his electrician’s job in Sydney.

In Thailand, he says, the girls didn’t speak the language. Manila hookers were too streetwise, the bars too spread out.

But this is Easy Street. He can sit atop his bar stool and ogle hundreds of passing girls fresh from the countryside who perfect the tricks of their trade before moving on to The Show in Manila.

The Australian signals a street vendor and buys some knockoff Viagra. He says he prefers the girls working one street over, who cost only 500 pesos, or about $10, apiece.

“Anything goes here,” he says, lighting another cigarette. He leans over to offer a bit of Fields Ave inside information: “You can get a young girl here to do anything if you promise to marry her.”

All along Fields Ave, the come-on banners with their Web addresses advertise good pay (up to $10 a day) for hostess jobs. But applicants must speak Korean, Japanese or Chinese.

A balding man pulls up on his motorcycle, greeting several other men loudly in German. They already have their catch, and girls jump on the back as the cycles roar off.

At the Tourist Assistance Booth, Odysius Garche says the older customers are better behaved than the US airmen were. “I just tell them, ‘The girls are inside. Go make you own deal.’ ”

Nearby, a chubby American with glasses eats a hot dog. He says he’s a bar manager but offers no details.

He came to Angeles City from California, to follow up on a chat-room hookup. He ended up on Fields Ave, drinking late with the dancers, hearing their stories.

“This is clean fun,” he says. “There’s no sex shows. These girls are not slaves. They have minds of their own.”

Behind him, women call out from the doors of bars with names like the Doll House, Club Lancelot, Treasure Island, Club Cambodia, the Blue Nile and the Amsterdam.

Suddenly, a group of 20-something men storms past, laughing and arm-punching. The news spreads and girls pop their heads out the doorways to catch a glimpse of boys their own age.

One calls after them with a deal she hopes they can’t refuse:

“Free!” she says, laughing.

Historic Sites around Balibago

Bale Herencia

was built in 1860 and is situated in Lakandula Street corner Santo Rosario Street. It is a picturesque house with the unsavory reputation of having been built for the mistress of a parish priest. The current owners now use it as a banquet hall.

Bayanihan Park

(formerly Astro Park) is now home to a year-round mini-amusement park and it is an ideal spot for sports and recreational activities having basketball and volleyball courts and huge space for jogging and other recreational activities. This is where the famous and historical "Salakot Arch" is now located.

Camalig

was built in 1840 by Don Ciriaco de Miranda, the first gobernadorcillo of Angeles, and was used as a grain storehouse along Santo Rosario Street. It was restored in 1980 by Armando L. Nepomuceno and is now the site of Armando's Pizza and Camalig Restaurant.

Fort Stotsenburg

is named after Colonel John M. Stotsenburg, a captain of the 6th U.S. Cavalry, was the location of the permanent quarters of the American forces in Sapang Bato, Angeles. It is also known as the "Parade Ground," which served as a venue for many important celebrations by the Americans before the Philippine-American Military Bases Agreement ended in 1991.

Founders' Residence (Bale Matua)

is located at the heart of Santo Rosario, is the oldest building in the city. It was built in 1824 by the city founder, Don Ángel Pantaleón de Miranda, and his wife, Dona Rosalia de Jesus, and was inherited by their only daughter, Dona Juana de Miranda de Henson. This house, which is made of high stone and an ornate gate, nostalgically symbolizes the glorious past of Angeles amidst the overwhelming onslaughts of modernization.

Holy Family Academy Building

was once a convent and was served as a military hospital of the U.S. Army in 1900. It was later used as troop barracks, officers' quarters and arsenal by the Japanese Imperial Military Forces in 1942.

Holy Rosary Church (Santo Rosario Church)

was constructed from 1877 to 1896 by the "Polo y Servicio" labor system, a kind of forced labor imposed on Filipino peasants by the Spanish colonial government. It was used as a military hospital by the U.S. Army from August 1899 to December 1900. Its backyard was the execution ground to the Spanish forces in shooting down Filipino rebels and suspects.

Juan D. Nepomuceno's Center

for Kapampangan Studies houses a library, museum of archives and gallery, research center and theater, put up by the Holy Angel University in 2002 to preserve, study and promote Kapampangan history and culture.

Lily Hill

was a strategic observation post for monitoring Japanese movement in World War II. Remains of Japanese aircraft were found here at the end of the war. Along this hill can now be found Lily Hill Duty Free Store.

Old Pamintuan Residence

was served as the seat of government of the First Philippine Republic under General Emilio Aguinaldo from May to July 1899 and the Central Headquarter for Major General Arthur MacArthur, Jr., the father of General Douglas MacArthur. It now houses the Central Bank of the Philippines in Central Luzon.

Post Office Building (Deposito)

is a building that was constructed in 1899 for the purpose of depositing religious statues and carriages of the Catholic Church, hence the name Deposito. It was also used as the headquarter of the 11th Film Exchange U.S. Army from 1946 to 1947 and was then used as a jailhouse for recalcitrant U.S. troops during the Philippine-American War. On February 6, 1967, the Angeles City Post Office moved to this building. It is now the site of Angeles Physical Therapy Rehabilitation Center.

Salakot Arch

is a landmark of Angeles City. From 1902 to 1979, Clark remained a U.S. territory, guaranteed by the Military Bases Agreement in 1947. In 1978, the Philippines, under the dispensation of the former President Ferdinand Marcos, and the U.S. finally agreed to establish Philippine sovereignty over the U.S. bases and thus the Clark Air Base Command (CABCOM) of the Armed Forces of the Philippines came into being, following the signing of a revised Military Bases Agreement on January 7, 1979. To commemorate this unprecendented and bold event, the government constructed a special structure based upon the design of a salakot or native hat, which soon became a widely recognized symbol of this renewed Filipino spirit from the long and archaic tradition of Philippine-American relations and the weaning away from it. Angeles will soon see and realize its full potential as a dynamic might on its own without the American base after the onslaught of Pinatubo volcano.

Sex Trade in Angeles City

At a club called Koko Yoko, balding men with bulging bellies sit at an outdoor bar, sipping beers and leering at the young girls who pass on the model's runway gone wrong called Fields Avenue.

Many of the girls weigh barely 90 pounds, their high heels pushing their almost adolescent bodies at perverse angles. There are cross-dressers fooling no one, calling out to men with tattoos, Popeye forearms and gray hair on their backs.

"Lady boy!" they squeal. "Lady boy!"

Some men pass by with girls one-third their age, swinging their hands together like a couple on a first date. Others cavort with three girls at once, the women all clutching their client like daughters competing for Daddy's attention.

Fields Avenue, the main pedestrian drag in Angeles City, is a legacy of the time when this row of run-down bars was the romping ground of restless young American airmen stationed at Clark Air Base.

The U.S. base closed in 1992, and the often-randy airmen have gone with it. But the girls, the sex, the round-the-clock raunchiness remain. Only the customers have changed.

A thriving sex tourism trade attracts foreign customers by the thousands in search of something they cannot find back home: girls young enough to be their granddaughters selling sex for the price of a burger and fries.

Once populated by virile men in their early 20s who started each day with 100 push-ups, the place is now home to older men who need help pushing themselves out of bed in the morning.

Most are bused up from Manila, an hour away, on golf and sex package deals. This is no quasi-innocent boys' night out. Rather, it's a single-minded realm of weary-looking loners on a resolute hunt that smacks of feeding an addiction.

Many are ex-military men reliving former glories, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper wannabes, some gathering at the local American Legion post before embarking into the night.

There is a one-armed man, a retiree with a walker and another dapper gentleman who strolls along in a dress shirt, twirling an umbrella, whistling a private tune.

The street, he says, takes care of him. Soon, an idle stripper climbs onto his back, rubbing her crotch into the back of his neck.

Nearby a saggy-faced Australian lights a cigarette. He's been in Angeles City for about a month, his last stop on a sex circuit from Bangkok to Manila after getting laid off from his electrician's job in Sydney.

In Thailand, he says, the girls didn't speak the language. Manila hookers were too streetwise, the bars too spread out.

The Senator

While walking down the street one day a senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.
His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. "Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and
one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises...

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven."

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."

The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.
He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders. "I don't understand," stammers the senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil smiles at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning


...... Today, you voted."

Pinay Teen Sex

Pinay Teen Sex Experiment On First Stage of Success


If you still remember, I was doing some experiments just to top the Google Search Engine when searching for the “Pinay Teen Sex“.

But I think, this position is not yet stable especially that I only started the experiment.


Doing this can be advantageous:

  • It can be considered as the war against online pornography on Pinay Teens (Filipino Teens).
  • It directs the traffic to this blog, instead of sending them directly to porno sites.
On the experiments I did on SEO (Search Engine Optimization), the experiments on the following keywords or keyphrases can now be considered successful since they are already on their stable spot on the Google Search Result Pages.

  1. Pinay Teen Sex
  2. Pinay Scandal, Pinay Celebrity Scandal, Pinay Sex Scandal
  3. Pinay Sex Video 
 If I will succeed on the experiment for the “Pinay Teen Sex” then this will be the fouth.

'Poison letters' vs mayor Blueboy Nepomuceno

Supporters of Mayor Francis "Blueboy" Nepomuceno on Monday discovered and apprehended an estimated 150,000 anonymous "poison letters" allegedly worth P1.5 million at Angeles City Post Office.

City Administrator Mark Allen Sison told Sun.Star Pampanga in an exclusive interview that they received a tip from a concerned employee of the post office Sunday afternoon, alerting them of the arrival of boxes containing letters with no return addresses.

The tipster said the letters contained materials against Nepomuceno.
All letters contained what was described as "libelous and derogatory materials' against the city mayor and his administration.

"As soon as we received the tip, we waited in front of the Angeles City Post Office and waited for the assistance of the post office staff. Here, we found hundreds of letters all addressed to registered voters of Angeles City. We contacted some of the supposed letter receivers and asked them if they could open their letters, and to our shock the contents of the letters were indeed very disturbing," Sison said. Sison said that known Nepomuceno supporters were not included among the recipients of the letters.Arnel Avenir of the Angeles City Post Office said the letters arrived last Thursday in boxes and were already pre-stamped. The letters were supposed to be delivered Monday afternoon. "I was here since the last 2007 elections and this is the first time that we have encountered such situation," Avenir said, stressing that he has ordered non-delivery of the letters as investigations are being conducted by their office and the Philippine National Police.

Condemnation
Imelda Lansangan, 26, and a resident of Barangay Virgen De Los Remedios here, said she was shocked upon opening the anonymous letter. She was one of the supposed recipients who rushed to the Angeles City Post Office.

"I was shocked to see the letters. They are, in my opinion, harmful and can cause bad publicity for the mayor," Lansangan said. She said the letters are clear examples of dirty political tactics. Lansangan was pertaining to the contents of the poison letters. Each letter envelope contained two statements, one attributed to the Concerned Citizens of Angeles City (CCAC) and the other to Nagkakaisang Mamamayan ng Angeles City (NMAC).

Both organizations, however, are fictitious, according to the City Hall. The letters alleged of corruption, mismanagement and criticized the much ballyhooed Angeles City Sports Stadium started by the Nepomuceno administration late last year. The letters also showed caricatures of Nepomuceno posing with a background of money and material possessions. Sison said the issues raised in the letters are "fictitious, concocted and malicious."

He also said some of the issues in the letters have already been answered by Nepomuceno in previous interviews with the media. The letters were brought to the Philippine Postal Corporation Regional Office in the City of San Fernando. PhilPost Regional Director Love Joy Matias told Sun.Star Pampanga that the letters would at least cost some P1.5 million along with the stamp, envelope and printing cost of the materials.
Matias said the PhilPost has a strict regulation on illegal materials such as libelous letters and being sent through snail mail. Such materials, he said, should not be sent through mail.

He admitted that such campaign propaganda is allowed by the postal service agency so long as requirements like stamps and addresses, both sender and return, are complied with.

"This is even in the Constitution. We are not allowed to even peek at an envelope's contents. That is why I asked the city administrator how they were able to detect the contents," Matias said.

Matias has ordered holding of the letters at the Angeles City Post Office. He is set to issue an alert among all post offices in the region on suspicious bulk letters from anonymous senders that are used for political propaganda.

"With this case, I have referred it to our Legal Office in Manila for proper disposition and pending the complaint the party of Mayor Nepomuceno would file," he said.

Suspects
Sison said they already have a suspect in mind but refused to name the person on record.
He said they are definite the letters are politically-motivated and are supposed to derail the reelection bid of Nepomuceno this May 10.

"We know who ordered this. We have defeated them in the past and we know how their mind works. They have been faring poorly at the surveys and are desperate to ruin the popularity of the mayor," Sison said.
He said there are only two other rivals for the mayoralty post and it would be easy to establish connection of the poison letters.

Sison said they are prepared to file legal action after the conclusion of the investigations.
Despite the black propaganda, Nepomuceno remains strong in the mayoralty race, he added.
"The more they discredit the mayor, the more he is endeared in the hearts of the people. He will surely come out victorious in the May 10 elections," Sison added.

History of Holy Angel University

In June 1933, Holy Angel Academy (HAA) opened its door to a modest group of 78 students in the Holy Rosary Parish Convent. It was initiated through the joint efforts of the late Don Juan D. Nepomuceno, a known philanthropist/prominent businessman and Fr. Pedro P. Santos, then parish priest of the town of Angeles and later Archbishop of Nueva Caceres. It’s primary purpose was to offer Catholic education in the secondary level, which the founder felt as the need of the community at that time. It was organized as a non-stock, non-profit corporation oriented toward service to the community.

The founders employed the able leadership of Ricardo V. Flores, an energetic educator from Pagsanjan, Laguna. Consequently, the Holy Angel Academy became the first Catholic coeducational high school run by laypersons with a first Friday devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. By 1940, HAA moved to the Main building from the Parish Convent.

When the war broke out, classes were suspended and resumed only in 1945. By 1947, the High School Department has attained government recognition.

To provide educational opportunities for working students, the evening sessions in high school was offered in 1948. A tertiary department with the College of Commerce, Junior Normal College and Liberal Arts was also begun operating in 1948 for those who cannot afford to study to Manila.

In 1960, acceding to public request, the elementary department was opened. In 1961, the one- and two-year Secretarial courses were opened. To pave the way for further educational expansion, the two-year pre-engineering course
was opened in 1962. In the ensuing years, this department was extended to offer complete courses in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Industrial Management Engineering.

From Academy to College

Considering what has been attained, in 1962 the school was permitted to become the Holy Angel College with Don Juan D. Nepomuceno as the first President.

Under his leadership and the able assistance of his son, Mr. Geromin G. Nepomuceno, the school experience a revitalized management that led to the adoption of the fiscal policy, which opened new possibilities for further growth and expansion. The dream of making the school more responsive to the need of the community in particular and the nation in general began to assume reality.

In 1965, the Graduate School of education was opened primarily to foster professional growth among teachers in the community. This was followed by the opening of the Vocational/
Technical Department that offered courses in Industrial Electricity, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning, Radio Electronics, Automotive Mechanics, and Machine Shop Practice. This department was established in response to the nation’s Manpower Development Program.

From College to University

Realizing the significance of the unprecedented growth of the College, the administration decided to aim for university status, which it attained on December 4, 1981. Engr. Mamerto G. Nepomuceno was installed as first university president March 8, 1982. On the same occasion, Archbishop Oscar V. Cruz of the Archdiocese of San Fernando proclaimed Holy Angel University a Catholic university. University enrolment peaked at 27,000 in SY 1983-1984.

On August 12, 1985, Sister Josefina G. Nepomuceno of the Congregation of Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing was installed as Second President of Holy Angel University. Under this new leadership, the professional dimension of the University was pursued with greater vigor and its Catholic character given greater and renewed emphasis.

From 1985 to 1994, curricular offerings added were AB majors in Sociology and religious
Studies two year programs in Computer Science and theater Arts, Bachelor of Science in Accountancy, BSBA major in Small Business Management/ Entrepreneurship, BSED majors in Values Education, PE Health and Music and Library Science, BS in Electronics and Communications Engineering, and Associate courses in Computer Secretarial and Medical Secretarial. The Graduate School offerings were MA in Education major in College Teaching, English Teaching, Mathematics and Library Science, Master of Business Management.

The Center for Research and, Measurement, and Evaluation, the Institute of small-
Scale Industries and Enterprise Resources Center reflected the University’s thrust towards research and community service. After 33 years, the Grade School had its final graduation in April 1994 as a result of its phase-out.

Quest for Quality and Excellence

In April 1995, the programs in the college of Arts and Sciences, Business and Accountancy, Education, and Engineering attained FAAP second level (full) accreditation status through PAASCU. Thus, Holy Angel became the first and only university in Region 3 accredited by PAASCU.

In the same year, Sr. Josefina ended her 10-year term as president with Mrs. Bernadette M. Nepomuceno as successor. Her first year of administration saw reforms in structure as well as operations and new courses offerings: BSBA major in Hotel and Restaurant Management, BSSA in Computer Secretarial and Travel Management, and BS in Computer Science.

In 1997, the Laboratory Elementary School was established to meet the requirements of the College of Education for its teacher-training program.

On August 6, 1999, the programs in the four Colleges were reaccredited by PAASCU. The Electrical and Industrial Engineering programs were conferred Centers of Development Level II status by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

SY 2001-2002 saw the opening of new programs, namely Mater in Engineering Program, major in Electrical Engineering and Industrial Engineering, Doctor in Business Management, BSEd in Home Economics and BSEd in Computer Education followed through.

In August 2001, CHED listed the University as one of the top 52 tertiary educational institutions in the country effectively conferring on it a deregulated status.

For SY 2002-2003, the new offerings were AB Psychology, BS Computer Engineering, BS Information Technology, BS Information Technology, BS Information Management, and BSEd Physical Education with specialization in Golf Sports.

In 2002, the University also hosted the First International Conference on Kapampangan Studies and established the Juan D. Nepomuceno Center for Kapampangan Studies to preserve study and promote Kapampangan cultural and historical heritage.

In 2003, the University revisited its vision and mission. It focused on excellence, community linkages and promotion of local history and culture. It also rededicated its commitment to accessible quality education. Responding to popular demand, it offered Nursing, Architecture, Computer Engineering, Psychology, Sociology, Information Technology, and Library Science. It also initiated sweeping improvement in physical plant, namely Mamerto G. Nepomuceno Hall, Angel Buildings: St. Gabriel and St. Raphael, the Chapel of the Holy Guardian Angel, Café Juan, and JDN annex.

CHED further elevated the University to autonomous status thus acknowledging its academic leadership in Region III in 2003. in May 2005, PAASCU conferred the reaccredited status on the programs of the four colleges. Hospitality Management was given one year to prepare for its formal survey.

In December 2005, Accountancy, Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, and Mechanical Engineering attained Level III accreditation making Holy Angel University one of the few schools that has attained this status. Electronics and Communications Engineering maintained its Level II reaccredited status.

In May 2006, PAASCU conferred Level I accredited status on the High School Program. The Graduate programs, namely Masters in Business Management and Master of Arts in education had the preliminary survey on September 1-2. In October, Hospitality Management achieved its Level I status.

On August 12, 2006, Dr. Arlyn S. Villanueva took the helm from Mrs. Nepomuceno in leading the University to its diamond jubilee in 2008. She vows to keep the founder’s dream aflame: Holy Angel University as the best higher education in Central Luzon anchored on the three E’s: Evangelization, Excellence, and Economy.

This subtle feeling may occur because of a single look, smell, words, appearance can change the way you feel about someone. Though most of the time it is the physical appearance that that plays a huge role in initially attracting someone to you. However, love is not just a physical attraction; it is as spiritual and emotional as physical. Therefore, if people do not vibe will with each other spiritually, physical attraction may wear off soon.

That is how you feel when you are inlove, but for some people being inlove is just for today the next day  they
got bored and find someone else. Now the question are? why do people cheat their fiance?, igirlfriend or boyfriend? their special someone.

4.Revenge some of them decide to cheat because there lovers cheat on them first.
5.Unattractive partner this may sound bad but most people cheat because their partner becomes unattractive. Just like their partners gain much weight or the look old already or maybe the forgot to take care of themselves.

A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PHILIPPINES' SEX INDUSTRY

Prostitution in the Philippines is not just a festering moral problem, but is now a grave social crisis which might spiral out of control with far-reaching health, criminal and other negative repercussions if unchecked. As our politicos thoughtlessly imperil our economic development with their massive corruption and vicious wars, more and more impoverished young people are falling prey to the dangerous lure of the sex-for-pay trade and possible exploitation by criminals.


Prostituted persons, according to a 1998 International Labor Organization study in 1998, numbered about 400,000 to 500,000. Most of them were adult women, but there were also male, transvestite and child prostitutes, both girls and boys. The number of child prostitutes then was estimated to be around 75,000. Child prostitutes often live perilously and are exploited by crime gangs, pimps and even drug pushers. That 1998 study quoted a former labor undersecretary, Rene Ofreneo, who revealed that the number of prostituted persons in the Philippines was then actually about the size of the country's manufacturing workforce. With the weakening of the Philippine economy in recent years, how much have these numbers increased?

In 1998, a study claimed that 150,000 Filipino women were trafficked into prostitution in Japan. It is tragic that this was allowed to happen, even as the modern-day Japanese government has refused to officially pay reparations to the estimated 80,000 to 200,000 so-called "comfort women" who were kidnapped  and sexually exploited by Japanese soldiers' during World War II from Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, China and Malaysia.

The Philippines ranked fourth among nine nations with the most number of children trafficked for prostitution, according to a report by the Consortium Against Trafficking of Children and Women for Sexual Exploitation (Catch-Wise). The Catch-Wise report was presented this year during the international conference on sexual exploitations and it stated that the Philippines is not only the source of 60,000 to 100,000 children for prostitution, but we are now also a transit and destination country for internationally trafficked persons.

Data provided by the International Labor Organization also showed that two to 14 percent of the gross domestic product of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand comes from sex tourism.
Instead of addressing the huge social injustice and other problems of widespread prostitution, or safeguarding the rights and welfare of less fortunate citizens, it is tragic that not a few of our politicians, police or military officers have a dubious track record of sexually exploiting or assaulting girls.

Who was that politician who tried to molest or insult a sexy starlet? Rep. Romeo Jalosjos raped a 12-year-old girl. Bian Mayor Bayani Alonte was accused of raping a 16-year-old girl. Former Quezon Rep. Manolet Lavides was involved in the prostituting of four high school students from Novaliches High School. Angeles City Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan was involved in the case of a 16-year-old model being prostituted by talent manager Jojo Veloso.

Past reports recorded that five policemen in San Fabian, Pangasinan were accused of raping an 11-year-old girl inside police barracks, while four policemen on duty were implicated in the rape of a 17-year-old girl inside the police station in Luneta. SPO2 Roel Waga and police investigator in Barangay Puerto, Cagayan de Oro City was involved in the sexual harassment of a 13-year-old girl.

Last Oct. 5, which was "International Day of No Prostitution," this writer researched and went to a huge palatial "spa" in the south of the metropolis to seek out an exclusive interview with a prostitute. After choosing a "masseuse" from an "aquarium" of girls seated inside a well-lit room with a one-way mirror separating them from customers, I paid the afternoon "promo" room rate of P2,000. The regular night room rate is P2,500.
"Anna," in her early 20s, was at first ill at ease when I said I only needed to interview her for a research study. I never mentioned that it was for a newspaper column, but I told her I wouldn�t mention her name and would obscure some facts. She only relaxed and laughed when I assured her I�d pay her usual fee. This was the first time that I had to pay for an interview. Here are excerpts:

PHILIPPINE STAR: In your own assessment, has the number of prostitutes in the Philippines increased or decreased? Why?

ANNA: Of course, the number of prostitutes has increased by threefold. Here in our establishment, many girls coming here every day to apply for work. Times are hard. You know, the government of Japan even stopped the entry of Filipina entertainers there, so lots of women are jobless and end up as prostitutes. I'm not ashamed of my work, at least I'm not stealing.

Have you worked in Japan, too?
Yes, I used to work in Japan. I was there only six months. We enter as entertainers, but most of us have to earn through prostitution. I worked in Nagoya, that's four hours away from Tokyo.

How was it like working in Japan?
Except for the high pay, I didn't like it much. It was boring. The roads are too quiet, unlike our noisy streets in Metro Manila.

Did your Japanese clients mistreat you?
There were good and bad customers, but in general, the Japanese were OK.

What did you do with your earnings from Japan?
I have some savings. I know the dangers of giving all earnings to relatives. I'm just a simple girl, not very intelligent, but I'm not dumb either. I'm not like other girls who give all their money to family members who do not work. My relatives don't know I have a time deposit account. On men who are bums, I know of two girls who work here in this spa, they have live-in guys who just stay in their homes and are jobless.

Do you have a boyfriend? What is his work?
I used to have a boyfriend. He was my neighbor. He's now working for a band in Japan. I don't know if we'll get back together. I don't know if it's a good idea to have a boyfriend, especially with my kind of work. I'm still helping out my siblings in their schooling, but they don't know I work here.

Why did you enter prostitution?
For the money, of course. If you're poor, you have few choices in life. People go into prostitution due to poverty.

Why do you think the Philippines has become such a poor nation?
I'm not an intelligent person, I didn't go to college. But isn't it obvious that too much corruption by our politicians is one big reason why the Philippines is economically so poor? I think our many corrupt leaders are terrible hypocrite. At least prostitutes like me are not hypocrites; we are trying to work honestly.

Are you in favor of deposing the present government?
We should do more than just change political leaders. We keep changing the politicians, but all of them just end up stealing. Most of our political leaders are thieves. You know, I might be a prostitute and am looked down upon by society, but I think I have a more honorable job than our politicians who steal and make the country poor. We prostitutes work hard for our money. We do not steal.

Do you have any suggestions on how to solve the massive corruption by our politicians?
That's very easy. Increase the punishment for corruption and be sure to jail the powerful big shots in politics. If we are serious about fighting corruption, show us the highest punishment for these corrupt people. But I doubt they are really serious about this.

Where are you from? How long have you been working here?
I was born in a province in northern Luzon. I am the eldest of seven kids from a poor family. I was a child when our father left us. I've been here only three months. I studied only up to high school. I used to work as a saleslady in a department store. I wanted to become a nurse but I guess it's impossible now.


How many hours do you work here?
I work eight hours daily. Yes, management told us that if we are studying, they can adjust our work hours to even four hours daily.

You will not always be young and I don't think you want to be working here forever. You can save and study to be a caregiver. Look at movie stars, they are not always popular, and if they don�t plan the future, they suffer.
I agree. Yes, I will study to become a caregiver. I hear it's easier to enter Japan as a caregiver now than an entertainer. I wish all my customers are as nice as you. Are you sure you don't want even just a massage?

Groundbreaking Ceremonies of the Angeles City Sports Stadium



Mayor Francis “Blueboy” Nepomuceno will lead groundbreaking ceremonies of the Angeles City Sports Stadium on February 22 to coincide with the opening of the Central Luzon Regional Athletic Association (CLRAA) Meet to be hosted by this city.

City Administrator Mark Allen Sison said that the ground breaking will help foster better sports programs and activities. The sports complex facility will be located along Barangay Mining here. The facility would include swimming pools, courts for basketball, volleyball and structures to house sporting events.
The project, which is expected to be financed through a multi-million peso loan from the Veterans Bank of the Philippines, was opposed by many Nepomuceno critics. But Nepomuceno and Sison said that like other needs of the city in terms of health, livelihood and poverty alleviation, sports should also be given the same priority.

“The services we give to our people will not, in anyway, be affected by the establishment of the sports facility. This is merely a part of the well-rounded governance of Mayor Nepomuceno,” Sison said.
The groundbreaking will be attended by local government officials, Angeles City athletes and CLRAA officials.
Sison said that the project, once realized, will also be an income generating facility for the city as it will be able to host sporting events and social functions of the city and other groups.

“The facility will also serve as the training ground of many of our athletes in order that we can develop more students to become competent athletes. We can now also strengthen the sports program of the city to include out-of-school youths that could be admitted through the sports programs,” he said.

Mayor Nepomuceno, for his part, said that the facility will also serve as a focal point to develop the western lands of the city; Nepomuceno said that the facility would be able to generate both human traffic and local tourism through hosting of national and regional sporting competitions.

“We would like to be known also as a city that has a deep love for sports. We want to see boxing competitions held here and our residents in the city to take advantage of the facilities of the soon-to-rise facility,” Nepomuceno said.

Nepomuceno said that Angeles City aims to rival Tarlac City in hosting even the Palarong Pambansa once the facility is completed here.

“This impact project will be a legacy that Angeles City would be able to benefit from for a very long time,” Nepomuceno said.

Priest, Fr. Cris Cadiang and girlie bar owner Tony Mamac form tandem for 2010 polls

Another priest, Fr. Cris Cadiang is seeking political office as vice mayor of the city, pairing up with a former cop known for operating girlie bars.

Fr. Cris Cadiang claimed he has already “resigned” from his priestly duties since 2003 to prepare for his bid to run as vice mayor of Angeles City in the May 2010 elections.

The 48-year-old Cadiang will run in tandem with Tony Mamac, a retired police officer and owner of the locally famous “Club Fairway” in this city’s red light district of Barangay Balibago.

Mamac also owns and operates several nightspots and girlie bars in Tarlac and Pangasinan.

“Mamac has not denied that,” Cadiang said, referring to Mamac’s operating girlie bars and nightclubs.

“But that (moral issue) hasn’t cropped up between us yet. Our bond has been focused on governance and other issues such as poverty and garbage in the city,” he said.

Asked whether he is merely being used to sanitize Mamac’s reputation as a bar owner, Cadiang said he would be ready to confront the former cop on such moral issues should both of them emerge winners in next year’s local elections.

Cadiang said he was given a “verbal blessing” by Aniceto to work on his dispensation from the priesthood.

Angeles Bishop Virgilio Pablo David confirmed that Cadiang had earlier expressed his “desire to be dispensed from priesthood” but stressed it would not be an easy task.

Father Ed Panlilio took a leave from his priestly duties when he ran and won as governor of Pampanga in 2007.

It was not an easy task for Panlilio, since opinions had been divided on whether he could take leave of his priestly duties while trying to run the affairs of the provincial government.

Other sectors said there is no such thing as “priest on leave,” since a priest could be relieved or dispensed of his religious duties by the Catholic Church even without his consent.

Aniceto earlier stated that there would be no turning back if a priest seeks dispensation of his duties from the Catholic Church, pointing out the original covenant of a priest is with God.

Cadiang said his priestly powers were suspended after he “resigned” from priesthood in 2003.

He recalled sending Aniceto three letters of resignation before the archbishop allowed him to resign.

But without formal dispensation from the Church’s tribunal, Cadiang admitted he could still be legally considered a priest.

Cadiang also admitted that he got married and has two children by that marriage.
