Well, I was travelling these past few weeks. I also found a good reason for not updating this blog along with so many other accounts I maintain online–I was in a country with limited internet connection. 😀 There were many developments around the world from what seems to be a movie inspired one–a black (well, half-black in this case) US president elected to the world’s remembrance of the ‘war to end all wars.’
Here are some events that some of you might have overlooked–The international community finally took notice of the carnage in DR Congo. The Philippine Daily Inquirer hopes that Pinoy politicians learn a thing or two from the recent US election. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is in trouble for a media leak of his private phone conversation with US President Bush where the latter reportedly asked him ‘what is the G-20?’. Howie’s article on Filipino racism stirred some emotions and fiery debates while Doronila took offense to Obama’s ‘snub’ that Malacañan tried to play down. The WP-Pinoy website is currently down (not sure why) and the last of the original Hi-5 member finally quits.
Quick wrap for the past two weeks, not comprehensive but I thought you might want to know about these. 🙂
