Popular Filipino-Australian singer, musical performer and actor RJ Rosales
passed away in Sydney yesterday morning. Details of his untimely death have to be
confirmed, but at this stage his family has asked to respect their privacy as
they mourn the loss of their son.
Rosales, whose real name is Roseo Jose Rosales, first gained fame as a member
of an ensemble cast of Miss Saigon back in 1996. Thereafter, he travelled to
Singapore and the Philippines, where he later starred in the movie Together
Forever with Carol Banawa. He became a household name in the Philippines when
he joined variety television show ASAP. The hard-working singer will leave
behind a legacy as a successful Australian talent gone too soon.
miss you … I love you … I love you so much. I miss you, bunso. Miss na
miss ka na ni Ate Divine. Magkikita tayo in 2 days. Basta magkikita tayo. I
love you bunso. I miss you.” These
were the last words I’ve heard last night from Ate Divine. After months of not
talking and a year of not seeing each other, she surprisingly called me. I
can’t even butt in ‘cuz she kept on whispering “I love you … I miss you” during
that 3-min call. I can sense the sincerity of her words. Much more when her
voice started to crack before she bid her last goodbye. We
usually talk for hours that it became a challenge for us to end our
conversation. We talk about almost everything … anything under the sun. Our
friendship is too strong that it endures long distances and quiet moments. We
always make it a point to stay in touch and should we fail, we understand the
silence. Though we rarely see each other, our friendship grows in time … even
“I miss you, Bunso. I
love you” Love ka ni Ate Divine.”…

Christmas is just around the corner … and so are the
malevolent criminals who take advantage of this season to stage their modus operandi. Just a couple of
hours ago, I fell in a trap of what they called “Laslas Bag Gang” while inside the bus on my way to work. I
am thoroughly aware that these delinquents loom around the metro waiting for no
particular victim. This time though, it’s

My bag was slashed using a small razor sharp blade. I am totally oblivious during this time
which I guess took only 10 minutes. The
executor used a large bag on his lap enough to cover his hand whilelacerating the fabric.
He actually caught my attention because he
was too uneasy. But considering his get-up (barong and dress pants), no one
would think of him as a crook. I have been so cynical to people especially in
public places. Argh, I should have followed my instincts. Luckily, my phones
and wallet were secured on a pouch inside. Nothing was snatched but he left quite
I went to a party Mom, I remembered what you said. U told me not to drink, Mom,So I drank soda instead. I really felt proud inside, Mom, The way you said I would. I didn't drink and drive, Mom, Even though the others said I should.
I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.
As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew I'd get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.
I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn't see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.:(
As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
"The other guy is drunk," Mom,
And now I'm the one who will pay.
I'm lying here dying, Mom....
I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon.
There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I'll die i…
