Netnet Camomot

Netnet Camomot once edited a society page and covered society stories for another newspaper. She has long been writing about the lighter side of anything under the sun, including pressing issues of the day, with a touch of humor.

Rejected

Netnet Camomot / THE Commission on Appointments has rejected the confirmation of Judy Taguiwalo as secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Gina Lopez, whose confirmation as environment secretary was also rejected, said a few months ago that she’s “more popular, rejected.” I wonder if Taguiwalo will also ...

Rich and infamous

Netnet Camomot / IF there’s one Senate inquiry I’m waiting for, it’s the he-said-she-said battle of the strain-less for the Comelec chairman and his estranged wife. A Facebook post did say she’s the strange wife. I guess that was for her third eye. The Comelec chair’s brother, who’s a doctor, ...

Created equal

Netnet Camomot / MONDAY last week, the sunset was unusually pink. But its colors changed so fast, the photographer, or wannabe photographers like us, had to catch each one the way we take photos of, say, a swimming competition? My niece was able to catch the crimson sunset, my sis ...

Sabbatical

Conscious uncoupling

Netnet Camomot / THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) chair and his wife, or should that be ex-wife, are now on a he-said-she-said battle of the brainless, er, strain-less. Strain-less because it seems so easy for both of them to expose their dirty laundry to the madlang pehpohl. But this exposure ...

The other side of fear

Netnet Camomot SO, it’s the designated smoking area and not simply any open space. Much like drugs—there’s a “designated” area where users can hide, and that’s exactly the cause of their capture once surveillance has proven the place is, uh, “designated.” But smoking and drugs are not the same—the former ...

As the saying goes

Netnet Camomot “DO you ever feel like you’re on Season Five of your life, and the writers are just doing outrageous s**t to keep it interesting?” said a meme posted last Friday. Two days later, an Ozamiz family could have said the same thing. And this is the family that ...

Neutral

Netnet Camomot PRESIDENT Rody Duterte is anything but presidential in his State of the Nation Address, speeches, and press conferences, no thanks to his swear words. It so happens that his listeners are literally absorbing each of the words he enunciates, and correspondingly react to his statements in the same ...

Tonyo or Lea

Netnet Camomot “Nagugutom ako kapag nakarinig ako ng bell. Naaalala ko ang recess,” says Tonyo (Empoy Marquez) in the movie, “Kita Kita.” For President Rody Duterte, though, his line could be, Naaalala ko ang Philippine-American War and Balangiga kapag nakarinig ako ng bell. There are Pinoys whose thought bubble now ...

Unremitting and unrelenting

Netnet Camomot WE were as usual stuck in traffic for 45 minutes at downtown Cagayan de Oro last Saturday afternoon. This had an unusual part, though—the traffic was inside SM CDO Downtown Premier’s parking building. If cars are hardly moving along Osmena Street where the cars exit, for sure, cars ...
