* FLASHLIGHT & OBESITY. From 09166578432: Obesity is not a matter of chance nor genetics. It is a serious matter of unlimited gastronomnical abuse. - Dapat palaging may flashlight. Pag may saunog brownout kaagad yan. Paano ka makagalaw kung madilim ang paligid, delikado ka pang makulong sa sarili mong bahay.

* HIGHER TAXES. From 09258635820: The TRAIN or tax reform program of our government now takes effect. The excise taxes will result in higher prices of basic goods. Our good President should enforce a law that at least 50% of excise taxes should be shouldered by manufacturing & other business companies & not 100% shall be passed on to the consumers. This will lessen the burden for the ordinary Filipinos majority who are poor.

* TO SMART. From 09983728036: Message ko lang sa SMART. Please lang, stop sending me mga pakulo kag promos ninyo. Wala gid ko ga-unli. Regular load lang gid ko pirme, pang-text kag tawag nga importante lang ang celfon ko. Kun inyo gid na patakaran magpadala pakulo kag promos, at least indi nyo man pagpatam-an. Salamat gid.

* 1 YEAR LOAD EXPIRY. From 09258635820: Good news for everyone. DTI, NTC & DITC signed a memorandum of agreement extending all prepaid loads up to one year. Let's hope telecoms would implement & follow this ruling. This will be a big boost specially to the poor who relies mostly on prepaid loads in their mobile phones.

** VICE MAYOR GARCIA & CHIEF RELOJ. From 0918760,,,: No publish my number ha palihog .... Nadakpan si Moises Padilla vice mayor Ella Garcia-Yulo kag bana sini sa checkpoint sang ila man lang kapulisan sa pagpamuo ni chief of police Alan Reloj. May nakuha nga mga armas, explosives kag suspected shabu. Priso pa si vice mayor kag iya bana. Ang isyu karon amo ang kon may kamatuoran ayhan ang hambal ni Chief Inspector Reloj nga yara sa intellgence report si vice Ella nga kuno naga supply sila mga armas sa NPA? Para ina kay Reloj to prove. Ang sa bahin naman ni vice Yulo iya man dapat pamatud an ga wala ina kamatouran. Ang mga taga banwa sang Magallon naga hulat sang lakat sang kaso. Salamat NDB.

* PACQUIAO VS. MCGREGOR. From 09104545425: Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao said recently that he has opened talks to mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Connor McGregor for a possible boxing match in April next year. However, McGregor shut down the proposed fight with the senator as not a sell-out.

* REMINDER TO SOME OUT THERE. From 0912345...: Always be reminded that simcards and cellphones have their own unique electronic footprints or signatures. Even if you throw away that simcard after sending a nasty SMS or a threatening message, the cellphone you have used will still be traced back to you no matter whether you use it again or not anymore. The place, time and other circumstances when you sent that SMS or MMS will give you away. Don't end up like those who only believed in the capability of modern technology when they were collared at a time they did not expect.
