Dakasi Milk Tea Kills 1, 9 in Critical Condition

Dakasi Milk Tea Kills 1, 9 in Critical Condition

A man died and nine others were rushed to the hospital after drinking milk tea in Iloilo City.

The lone fatality, 27-year-old Ben Jason Chang, died after drinking milk tea he bought in Dakasi Milk Tea earlier this week.

Nine others who dined at the popular milk tea outlet were brought to the hospital after suffering from stomach pain and vomiting.

The city health office has already obtained food and drink samples from Dakasi to determine whether the outlet's products indeed caused the food poisoning. The Food and Drug Administration will examine the samples.

The branch of Dakasi Milk Tea has been closed temporarily while the investigation is ongoing.

ABS-CBN News Iloilo could not reach Dakasi branch manager John Berlin for comment.-

Miriam Defensor-Santiago Accuses Juan Ponce Enrile of Financing Zamboanga Attack

Miriam Defensor-Santiago Accuses Juan Ponce Enrile of Financing Zamboanga Attack
Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago on Thursday accused her political enemy, Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, of allegedly financing the rebellion by the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) in Zamboanga City to divert the public’s attention from the accusations of plunder against him.

“Enrile is so desperate that he is like a crocodile who has left his maritime kingdom and is flapping around on land, still hoping to kill his prey. I am morally convinced of his culpability in trashing the Commission on Audit and its chair, as well as in engulfing Zamboanga City in an expensive rebellion,” Santiago said in a statement.

Santiago first hinted at Enrile’s alleged involvement in the MNLF attack on Zamboanga City in a speech at the 13th annual postgraduate course of the University of the Philippines-Department of Emergency Medicine at Diamond Hotel in Manila.

In her speech, Santiago cited the estimate of the party-list group Magdalo, whose members come from the armed services, that the MNLF faction led by Nur Misuari and ground commander Habier Malik would have spent at least P40 million on the attack on Zamboanga that began on Sept. 9.

Magdalo Rep. Francisco Ashley Acedillo urged the government on Wednesday to investigate the information that somebody linked to the P10-billion pork barrel scam paid the Misuari faction of the MNLF P40 million to create trouble in Zamboanga.

Speaking at a news forum in San Juan City, Acedillo said the information, received recently by Magdalo, was “very plausible.”

While P40 million was “not enough to sway the scheme of things in one direction or another,” Acedillo said it was “enough to create trouble.”

“Any trouble outside the [pork barrel scam] is, I think, a welcome development [to those involved]. Because, without naming names, it is of interest to them that the government is preoccupied on so many fronts,” Acedillo said.

In the portion of her speech where she tackled her suspicions on who the financiers of the Zamboanga attacks were, Santiago referred to “rumors” and did not identify Enrile by name. But later in the day, she issued a stronger statement implicating Enrile.

“The question now is: Who gave the P40 million to the MNLF [faction] led by Misuari? Where did he get it? He doesn’t have P40 million? Maybe [there is an] overseas [financier]? Maybe someone who wants our country to be engulfed in conflict? Or maybe a Filipino who is now being grilled over the pork barrel scam so he wants public attention diverted to Mindanao?” Santiago said in her speech.

“Can you guess who? Imagine, the charge of plunder [involves] a minimum amount of P50 million. If he stole at least P50 million—but even more, if he already stole P500 million—what is P40 million to him, right? Think about it,” she said.

In her statement, Santiago pointed out that according to the whistle-blowers, Enrile reportedly gave some P400 million of his allocation in the Priority Development Assistance Fund to a nongovernment organization set up by businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles.

“Thus, in the buzzing public mind, Enrile could easily afford to spend P40 million on the Zamboanga rebellion as a diversionary tactic. The public should consider his background as defense secretary during martial law, with a proclivity for coddling former police and military officials, and a feckless ambition to rewrite history,” Santiago said.

Plunder charges

Enrile is facing plunder charges in the Office of the Ombudsman, along with Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla Jr., Napoles and a number of congressmen.

The MNLF faction led by Misuari denied the Magdalo information on Tuesday.

Emmanuel Fontanilla, lawyer and spokesman for Misuari, said the MNLF would “never accept funds from a corrupt source.”  - Jerome Aning and Kristine Felisse Mangunay, PDI

Megan Young Disqualification on Miss World 2013 Competition Surfaced

Megan Young Disqualification on Miss World 2013 Competition Surfaced

Megan Young is a shoo-in for the Miss World 2013 title. One day before the coronation night, an issue is being thrown at her that could jeopardize her chances of winning the blue crown.

Megan Young increased her chances of taking home the first ever Miss World title to the Philippines by being one of the 10 finalists in the Top Model Competition. This is a great addition to her Top 11 finish in the Beach Fashion contest two weeks ago. But as Megan moves on top of the Miss World point system and to the crown, her topless photos in Rogue Magazine starts to dampen her chances, similar to what the photos did to her unsuccessful bid to join Binibining Pilipinas.

The International Business Times, a UK-based news agency where the headquarters of the Miss World Organization is also based, published on its website that Megan’s topless poses in the March 2012 issue of Rogue Magazine, a magazine circulated in the Philippines “has surfaced and drawn ire from the fans.”

Rules are rules when it comes to the Miss World beauty contest. It seems that contestants taking their clothes off is a clear breach of the laws”, says one user who sent a letter to IBTimes UK but she requested anonymity. I am not sure though if she cited specific laws in the Miss World charter or if there is that law. God knows what other jealous contestants can do to put Megan down now that she is leading the contest together with Australia’s Erin Victoria Holland, Brazil’s Sancler Frantz, France’s Marine Lorphelin, Italy’s Sarah Baderna, Spain’s Elena Ibarbia and Ukraine’s Anna Zayachkivska. It’s intriguing though how the letter sender requested anonymity. Continue reading HERE.
