February is the most anticipated month because of the celebration of Valentine's Day . To many it is the time of renewal of love for husbands and wives , for boyfriends and girlfriends . But , this day is not limited to those I mentioned but, it is also a month of remembering our love ones specially our parents and grandparents and everyone closest to our hearts . Valentine's day is an expensive day. Flowers in Dangwa are prohibitive, chocolates , and other material gifts will cost the giver quite an amount . I hope that we should consider Valentine's Day in our everyday lives and not limit it to a one-day affair . This day becomes so commercialized that we forget the true meaning of love and being in-love. A home-cooked dinner can make this occasion memorable instead of lining up in restaurants to treat your love ones . Home dinner is more healthy that going to restaurants that will cost you quite an amount . Times have changed and people considers Valentine's Day as the time to splurge . Lets reconsider our options plan a home celebration for this day . Happy hearts Day everyone .
The controversial issue as of date is whether the franchise of ABS-CBN should be renewed or not . It seems that this administration is bend into getting bac at the media outfit for allegedly " not airing the political commercial of then candidate Rodrigo Duterte .

It is probably because of this that Solicitor General Jose Calida did not want to take chances with Congress and opted to short -circuit the process by filing directly a complaint to the Supreme Court by filing a "quo warranto " petition seeking to nullify ABS-CBN because of allleged " highly abusive practices benefitting a greedy few . The truth of the matter SolGen Calida is only trying to please his Boss ,after his Boss declared a war against the media outfit . Obvious ba ?
