When the sun reaches it's zenith on June 30, 2010, the entire country will witness the second biggest transition to happen this year -- the inauguration of the country's 15th President, Benigno Noynoy S. Aquino or PNoy for short.
The first biggest transition (nationwide automated elections) this year actually paved the way for the ascent of Noynoy as President and his ever active horde of Yellow Worshippers are probably preparing for his inaugural like they would a wedding.
Oh I am sure thousands of pigs, cows, and chickens will be slaughtered for the feasts that will welcome the coming into power of Noynoy.
I am not at all sure if vegetables and root crops like kalabasa, kamote, and kangkong will be served on the buffet tables at the grand street party for Noynoy at the Quezon Memorial circle.
It would probably be a good idea, though, to include these in the buffet as it contains a lot of anti-oxidants which is great for people who smoke a lot and run the risk of getting cancer.
Anyway, after the fiesta and the hangovers, people will soon be waking up to the realities that will confront the Noynoy Administration.
The writing on the wall can be read from the moon, perhaps, and the first thing on the agenda -- after all the hoopla -- should be how to keep the economy moving.
On the front page of the NEW government newspaper, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, it says that President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will leave a budget deficit of P340 BILLION and the article somewhat emphasizes that it will be the biggest deficit in Philippine history.
On historical matters as well as inaugural matters, I'll probably have to take Manoling Quezon's word for it.
But what I am sure about is that Noynoy's job as President will be tough, to say the least.
First and foremost, he has traded the rather comfy job of 'fiscalizing' (if ever there was such a word) or complaining, for the job of ACTUALLY doing something.
His Yaya Cora's interview with Ces Drilon didn't give much to calm away my apprehensions.
Noynoy, according to Yaya Cora, had one nasty habit or ugali which really peeved his sisters and that was his penchant for falling asleep in the bathroom as well as taking too long to get ready to go out.
I laughed at the thought of all three of his sisters dragging Noynoy by the hair on such days and think this would account for his latent follicle growth.
One thing is for sure though, the Aquino sisters better make themselves handy because in the days ahead, their countrymen will need them to get Noynoy's ass moving... If not to solve the country's ills, at least to be awake in the front row to watch as the country sinks into the sea.
