Arlyn dela Cruz: the Look of a Winner

Filipina journalist Arlyn dela Cruz and another colleague Cesar Apolinario won three major awards in the PMPC Star awards for their opus, Puntod, a social commentary of a movie.

This space congratulates the two for a job well done. Dela Cruz and Apolinario belong to a rare breed of journalists who are socially conscious of the events happening in our country.

What is most admirable about these two colleagues of mine--they have an acute sense of reality and to render it in the most artistic way shows a depth which other people lack. Not all journalists have this artistry in them and this is just some of the traits that I, along with millions of others, admire in people like Arlyn and Cesar.

Not only that---despite all odds, both shows an uncompromising attitude about their chosen path. Their fortitude is truly amazing.

By the way, look at my kapatid here. She not only looked a winner--she's as sultry as ever. :-) Paging Willie Revillame. Baka kailangan niyo ng kapalit ni Congrats sa Wowoweee, hehehe. :-)
