Teresita Ang See - Kaisa Heritage , Tulayand other leading newspaper newspaper contributor , founder CACC

Teresita Ang See. She is the founding president of Kaisa Para sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (Unity for Development), a nongovernment organization in historic Intramuros, Manila.

She is also the executive trustee of the Kaisa Heritage Center, which houses Bahay Chinoy (A Museum of the Chinese in the Philippines Life), a research center, data bank library and photo archives.

A Manileña, multi-awarded Ang See was born in the Chinese enclave of Binondo. “We were very poor,” she recalled. “I was one of 11 children. My father died when my mother was 38. We had to work. I started working when I was in Grade 5.”

Ang See (Tessie to friends) attended Chiang Kai Shek College (was later named an outstanding alumna), and took up political science at the University of the Philippines Diliman in Quezon City. A member of the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission, she has become known for her advocacy against crime, especially kidnappings. But she says that Kaisa was not formed to combat crime. The foundation has its own mission and specific objectives.

It started in 1993 with the tragic death of kidnap victim Charlene Sy, 15. Angered, Ang See led a mass protest at the Sy funeral, and later helped mobilize a big protest against criminality held at the Philippine International Convention Center.
She drew a distinction between the things she chooses to do, and the tasks she has to undertake “of necessity.”

Tapping the potential of the Chinoy (Chinese-Filipino) community, doing something that would make a lot of difference for Philippine society, and contributing to nation-building is something the crusader would like to do or is doing. “It’s a choice,” she said. “Anti-crime is something I’m forced to do, it’s not a matter of choice. We work extensively to push reforms in the criminal justice. We work with the police and try to solve the problem. And we support (kidnap) victims who file court cases.”

The police, she said, “always allow the victim to pay the ransom, 100 percent. But if the victim cooperates with them once he/she is released, this makes the job of the policemen easier.” Kaisa works closely with other NGOs like Crusade with Violence, United People Against Crime, and Foundation for Crime Prevention. They have this Court Watch, wherein they follow up cases in support of kidnap victims, encourage them to continue the court case, and help look for good lawyers for them.

Has she received death threats? Ang See shrugs, “The kidnapping syndicates are well organized, well funded. They are also (anonymous), while I’m open. People see me, hear me, read about me. So I’m vulnerable. Anybody is vulnerable. You don’t know whether the threat comes from criminal syndicates, or from the police.” Yes, the police is itself a tainted institution. “But we have to work with the police, as we are the most vocal (group),” she pointed out. As for officers with a dubious record, “we try to convince the government not to appoint them to Task Force positions.”

How successful has the anti-crime, specifically the anti-kidnapping, campaign been?

“It’s not easy to judge our success,” Ang See said. “Maybe without our making a lot of noise about kidnapping, the problem would have been much, much worse. Ten long years after formation and we are still here, the problem is still there. Kidnapping is rampant!”

There have been 80 death penalty convictions since 1993. What scares Ang See and her group is the fact that kidnapping is not news anymore, unless the victims are prominent, like the children of a congressman.

“So people begin to think that kidnapping is a way of life,” she observes. “They become resigned, and not much effort is made to solve the problem. We don’t see sincerity in the government’s political will.”’

Pokwang or Marietta Tan Subong

Marietta Subong, better known by her stage name Pokwang, (Pokwang, the smart-aleck girl whose wit and humor endeared her to komiks fans .From the comic-stirp of same name created by Vincent Kua Jr. in the 1980's). is a Filipina actress, TV Host, and comedian. She won a competition in ABS-CBN that made her a famous comedian. She is usually known for playing older women/Mother characters.

Pokwang's Story on MMK

How do you laugh when your heart is breaking? And how do you find the strength to make others smile when you can't even cheer yourself up? This Thursday, September 2, join Maalaaala Mo Kaya as it looks at the hidden sorrows under the sunny smile of Pokwang, the winner of Yes Yes Show's "Clown in a Million" contest.

Drama and comedy overlap in this week's episode, directed by Joyce Bernal, and starring Pokwang herself. Starring along with Pokwang are talented actresses Nikki Valdez and Joy Chiong as Pokwang as a child and a teen, respectively, and Gina Pareño and d!ck Israel as Pokwang's parents. Also in this episode are Kenji Marquez, Allan Paule and Ilonah Jean.

Aptly named after a komiks character, new comedienne Pokwang is at the beginning of what looks like a very promising career in comedy, with a prominent role in ABS-CBN's newest daily soap Maid in Heaven and a very identifiable persona as a hilarious "babaeng bakla." But for Marietta "Pokwang" Subong, life was never as funny as she would have wanted. Growing up with a father who had a weakness for drinking, Pokwang watched her mother struggle with the burden of raising 12 children with very limited resources.

Determined to help her family, a teenaged Pokwang decided to leave for Japan to become a dancer. But before she even left, Pokwang crossed paths with Hideyo, a Japanese businessman who became her first boyfriend. How will he change Pokwang's life? And how did her children with Hideyo and her next Japanese boyfriend bring Pokwang the many moments of happiness and heartbreak that sustained and challenged her over the years?

Pokwang is a member of ABS CBN's Star Magic group of entertainers popularly known as the ST Queen of the Philippine Cinema.

The Philippines’ Chinatown is Binondo District in Manila. It is one of the oldest Chinatowns in Asia. Binondo was established in the 1670s although records show that there are already a Chinese community living here before the Spanish came in the 1570s. Binondo was the center for commerce during the American colonial era mainly because the Chinese were known to be experts in trading and finance. Major roads like Escolta Avenue and Ongpin Street runs through here.

Chinito representing the Philippines

Pinoy veteran bowler Chester King dished out another sterling performance and teammate Raoul Miranda held his ground to give the Philippines a gold-silver finish in the men’s all-events competition in the 20th Asian tenpin bowling championships here.

King added a three-game series of 648 pins to his Asian three-game record of 813 to amass a 24-game total of 5534 (230.58 average) from his singles, doubles, trios and team outings. Miranda, already the singles bronze medalist, accounted for 5444 (226.83) to hold off United Arab Emirates’ Hussain Al-Suwaidi, who settled for the bronze with 5366 (223.58).

King’s fiery showing gave him his first individual gold after his team up with Miranda and Frederick Ong had earned for the Filipinos their first gold medal in the trio event.
Tshomlee books ticket to Beijing Olympics

The Philippines' flyweight bet Tshomlee Go went through the eye of a needle and survived a pair of sudden-death thrillers to book a ticket to Beijing at the World Olympic Taekwondo Qualifying Games at the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena.

Go, 26, claimed third place in the 49 kilogram division after beating Egypt's Tamer Salah Bayoumi – the 2004 Athens Olympic bronze medalist – in his sixth match of the 48-man, knockout eliminations. It was a grueling grind for the University of Sto. Tomas education graduate who started out like a house on fire in the morning, hacking out a 4-1 decision over Yemen's Akram Ahmed Ahmed Abdullah, and finished with almost an empty gas tank late at night.

Go got a break when he won his second assignment by default as neither Libya's Abdulrouf Mohamed Gerwash nor Iraq's Ahmed Kasim Kadim showed up because of visa problems. Then, he went up against Denmark's Philip Reyes, born in Copenhagen to Filipino migrants. The match went down to the wire and Go advanced via a sudden death kick-off.

Next for Go was Thailand's Chutchawal Khawlaor, the World Cup and Asian champion. In a tight contest, Go pulled off a hairline 2-1 win with a kick to the torso in the last second.

In the semifinals, Go was overwhelmed by Chinese-Taipei's Mu Yen Chu, the 2004 Athens Olympic gold medalist who breezed to a 3-0 lead in the first round and increased the gap to 5-0 before the match was called off on the mandatory seven-point rule at 7-0 in the third.

Go said booking an Olympic ticket here was tougher than making it as the only Filipino survivor at the World Qualifying Games in Paris in 2003. He won the bronze in Paris.

MANILA, Philippines - Filipino shooter Eric Ang earned a wildcard berth in the Beijing Olympics this December, according to statement released on Tuesday by Philippine Spors commissioner Joey Mundo, former secretary-general of the Philippine National Shooting Association (PNSA).

"This is good news for the sport of shooting since Ang is the first shooter to make the Olympics after Jethro Dionisio in Athens," Mundo said in an interview.

Ang got his wildcard berth after posting convincing performances in the trap events of two international competitions.

Ang missed the qualifying mark for the Olympics by just a mark during the Asian Shooting Championships in Kuwait last year. And in the pre-Olympics shooting tournament in Beijing held last April 12-20, Ang placed only 24th among 92 participants.

Ang will join other Filipinos who had already earned a ticket to the Beijing Olympics – swimmers Miguel Molina, Ryan Arabejo, JB Walsh, Daniel Coakley, and Cristel Simms; divers Shiela Mae Perez at Rexel Ryan Fabriga; taekwondo jins Tshomlee Go and Marie Antoinette Rivero; boxer Harry Tanamor; and archer Mark Javier. - GMANews.TV
