Sun.Star Columnists

if you can’t read the text in the sun.star house ad below, i copied it here for you. this came out in last Saturday’s issue of the paper. I need to post this to feed the ego. so spare me the raised eyebrows.

it would be nice if you can also comment on who in the list of sun.star columnists is your favorite and why. i don’t have their names here. No need, because when you hate or love a columnist, it’s certain that the name is etched in your mind. whatever you write here about their columns they won’t know because they don’t visit this site. so feel free. but expect my editor’s instinct to work when a punch hits the crotch. and you can bet your ass no comment about INSOYMADA will make it here.

OPINION WRITERS FROM SUN.STAR CEBU AND SUN.STAR SUPERBALITA (CEBU)

“Individually, each has his own voice, her own niche, varying in substance and style from the others. Collectively, they pack a wallop, an enormous force in shaping public opinion. Each columnist seeks to inform, entertain, or inspire, yet also questions, teases, challenges, disputes. Motivated by noblest of motives: public good.”

  1. boringan ko ni juan mercado bisag nindot pud iyang mga sugyot.
    mag-libog ko ni noy elias, unsa ba jud, ouano ka or cortes?
    wa nimo gi-apil si radel paredes, mubasa ko niya kay ka-STAND mate mi sa college. i like the prose of mayet tabada and elma quizon. di ko katugkad sa mga poetry ni januar yap, kinahanglan ug salbabida, oopps tig li-li-an ra ba na siya diri. lingaw ko sa pagkabiyatch ni melanie lim. diko ganahan sa kolumn ni super bob, motumbling sad usahay, cliche ra kaayo. kang bong, paborito sa akong bana kay i mention kuno iyang ngalan kada manunggal trek. michelle so and isolde amante, nindot usahay pero usahay pud preachy ra kaayo. kang insoy, sa way duda, dako kaayo akong buhakhak kay ganahan ko ug mga tao nga naay pagka-sipat. ambot lang lang kung sipat ni siya in real life. ug ang uban di nako mubasa kay labad na akong ulo nila.

  2. bai, guapo lagi nang number 19? kinsa na? ila ila ko ana beh. crush nako siya. sho, ang atong libro ha. himo ko proposal para nimo. naa ko kaistorya publisher from manila.

  3. akua sad na favorite kanang ika 19, murag kaila man gud ko ana niya, murag vocalist man gud na sya ug banda mao kana akong favorite…hehehehe..sipat daw ingon dr. tes..hmmmm..hehehe labay lang sir enz.. πŸ™‚

  4. Si Nini Cabaero ang akong paborito. Balik-balikon nako’g basa ang iyang mga sinulat. Taas kaayo akong respeto kang sir Bong Wenceslao. Ang iyang mga sinulat, patas, way gidapigan, way gitagu-an ug labaw sa tanan, maka-pahigmata ang iyang mga punto por punto nga mga argumento. Malingaw ko sa kalawom tugkaron nga mga sinulat ni Juan Mercado. Nakaukay sab ng mga banat-tirada ni Bobby Nalzaro. Dili sab mawala sa akong panumduman ang maayo nga analysis ni Pachico Seares. Makapahiyon sab ko sa mga sinulat ni Lorenzo NiΓ±al. Lawom og dulot ba.

    Halos man tanan. Lahi-lahi man gud matag columnist sa Sun Star. Payter kaayo ba!

  5. nangandoy tawn ko nga maytag mahimo kog columnist sa sun.star! maytag mahitabo! pirme man gud ko magbasa sa sun.star labi na sa opinion page nila super bobby, ma’am nini cabaero ug atty. frank malilong

  6. Wow! Bow! Wow! wow!

    My fave Sunday reads:
    1. Melanie Lim
    2. Mayette Tabada – Grabe, usahay ma-obil ko sa iya style!
    3. Juan Mercado – basta makalingaw nga basahon. basta dili politka.
    Ug usahay pud, kung mataymingan, John Pages.

    Asa ka dapit? Hehehe! Mao diay. Your name rings a bell… πŸ˜€ Pero la jud ko ka catch imo column lately.

  7. mubasa pud di ay ko myke O, maka-alibyo sa laay iyang mga pulong.

  8. Sa sports page diay, paborito nako si sir John Pages. Kanang sa Sun Star Sunday ba, Single’s Talk, ganhan sab ko mobasa sa ana nila ni Michelle ug DJ. Bisan unsaon, nindot man gyod ang Sun Star writers. Mga reporters, i-feature sab unta no? Sila Ramos ug uban pa…

  18. i love mayette tabada!
    hai…. she’s one of the reasons why i was hooked up into writing….
    our inspiration… idol sa class…. we just love her!

    but of course, the owner of this blog is also my mentor in writing!
    burger! burger! burger!

  19. Soy,
    Fret no more. All your columns are posted in the walls of my memory. Charing!
    It’s not only you who is missing in this piece. When the paper came up with something like this before and the person’s picture was not included, naa gyuy nangluod. Pero sige na lang if it happened to you too. I’ll say the rest in an e-mail. πŸ™‚
    But know that I always read your columns (why do I keep sending you those stupid stories?) and your blog is bookmarked.

  20. I stand corrected. You’re picture is there. I was thinking of something else — yes, the person whose picture is really not there.
    My comment above must look so stupid, like the stories I send. Hahaha..apologies.

  21. @ aledel: ok ra del. just keep those stories coming. πŸ™‚

  22. I will always admire Mr. Juan Mercado. His precision in articulating his thoughts and opinions is admirable. I have gotten to meet the man in person years back I sincerely can say that he is a nice person. He is one of the people that Cebu should be proud of.

  23. mayette tabada ang pinaka lehg! kasabot ka unsa nah? haha and si insoy na lang sad diay πŸ™‚ i do read his articles when i get the chance. hehe

  24. melanie lim is a great writer! every article she writes is awesome because she always makes a stand. The introduction is catching and the ending contains a recommendation, the proper way of writing a good essay.
