The last year has been one of the worst for me personally and the world.
This year, I hope and pray that this year will be better for me and the world.

I visited a local 7-11 convenience store to buy something to drink. I was looking a the chilled drinks section and saw the items above. These are new Pepsi variants under the Deluxe brand. Apparently Deluxe is marketed as a premium zero calorie cola. It currently comes in two flavors, Strawberry and Creme and Crème Caramel. Its contained in a 250ml can, smaller than regular 330ml soda cans. 7-11 sell the cola for PHP 20.00 each or roughly USD 0.50
There is nothing deluxe about Deluxe. It is still cola but you’ll get a hint of strawberry creme and caramel creme with every sip. If you’re looking for a strawberry or caramel hit, I suggest to either eat real strawberries and caramel with cream. For me, I’ll just stick to Pepsi Max or Coke Zero.
I was channel surfing last Friday night and noticed one thing while switching to Net-25, a television station controlled and possibly owned by the Inglesia ni Cristo*. I was watching the station’s news program called “World Report.”
The pictures you’re seeing are from Mr. Jun Lozada‘s Friday testimony at the Philippine Senate regarding an alleged overpriced and highly corrupted proposed government contract. The first picture, on the very top, is a close-up of Mr. Lozada with two catholic nuns behind him. These nuns were wearing a cross, which is not out of the ordinary. Net-25 censored the image of the cross by it whiting-out. Obscuring it as if hiding a brand or something nude. It is as if a cross is something obscene.
What was Net-25 thinking?

*The Iglesia ni Cristo (also known as INC or Iglesya ni Kristo, literally Tagalog for Church of Christ, pronounced [ɪˈgleʃɐ ni ˈkxɾisto]) is a nontrinitarian Christian restorationist religious organization that originated in the Philippines The INC was founded in the Philippines by Felix Y. Manalo on July 27, 1914;The most basic component of the INC’s beliefs is that founder Felix Manalo was sent from God to reestablish the Christian Church in its true form and that the original church was apostatized. The organization denies the doctrine of the Trinity, as well as the Divinity of Jesus. [from wikipedia.org]

I’ve found this useful website about Philippine legal forms from Deed of Sale to Last Will and Testament.
Note that the Philippine legal system was influenced by the United States and Spain.
