"Aquino was just telling the truth"
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - January 24, 2015 - 12:00am
If the truth is you're ugly, would you appreciate it if, in public, I say out loud you're ugly, it's the truth anyway?
Is it also a state visit?
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - January 17, 2015 - 12:00am
I wonder why some reputable news sites call this visit by the people's pope, Pope Francis, both a pastoral and state visit. I spoke to a high-ranking church official just a few weeks ago and he described it as a...
Home (but never) Alone
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - January 3, 2015 - 12:00am
I write this one with faith, family, friends, and festivities in mind, the most important to me, all of which I equate to 'home'-both its essence and corporeal state.
Screwing people over
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - December 14, 2014 - 12:00am
More specifically, screwing people over on your way to the top. This is what this column is all about.
True love is ube ice cream
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - November 22, 2014 - 12:00am
When I was a child, my favorite ice cream flavor was rocky road, replete with nuts and marshmallows and the flavor of chocolate, its taste and texture were perfection.  For years, I would never have any other...

Calling the Aquino Administration cruel is perhaps the understatement of the decade.
What is Trillanes up to?
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - October 25, 2014 - 12:00am
While the accusations against Vice President Binay are extremely serious, especially that he is running for the highest office of the land, and while he must answer these in the proper fora, I am extremely curious...
The queen
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - October 18, 2014 - 12:00am
Last week, photos of Angelina Jolie being presented by Her Majesty the Queen the insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George went viral on the internet...
Suggestions to ease Cebu traffic
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - October 11, 2014 - 12:00am
Before we even talk about cutting very old narra trees for the multibillion peso Bus Rapid Transit or BRT project here in Cebu, let's explore other ways, simple and workable solutions, to mitigate the worsening traffic...
Green Loop “experiment”
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - October 4, 2014 - 12:00am
It was, for all intents and purposes, an experiment. And like any experiment, things can go awry, or worse, explode, in the process of discovery or proving (or disproving) a hypothesis; and that's essentially how...
Cancer of the heart
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - September 29, 2014 - 12:00am
Since high school, I have joined (or have been forced to join) what could already be dozens of leadership training seminars, and while I may be far from the ideal product of these well-meaning lecture-workshops,...
Save the narra trees on Osmeña Blvd
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - September 20, 2014 - 12:00am
"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children?
Sophisticated leadership and the cause of our trees
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - September 13, 2014 - 12:00am
If the issue of the cutting of the acacia trees in Naga and the proposal to KILL over two thousand trees for the BRT in Cebu City happened in the First World, it would've left entire populations flabbergasted, and...
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - August 30, 2014 - 12:00am
What bothers me about these Senate hearings trying to investigate alleged corruption issues involving Vice President Jejomar Binay and his family is that I have seen this many times before. Politicians have been...
At least he is honest…
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - August 23, 2014 - 12:00am
This is the usual go–to excuse for those who continue to support Noynoy Aquino; that at least "he is honest and not corrupt." What baloney. Set against the facts, asserting such argument means setting the bar...
Binay is being played
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - August 16, 2014 - 12:00am
Vice President Jejomar Binay is an astute and seasoned politician. He has more than survived in Makati as its mayor; his name and the members of his clan have thrived throughout the past three decades, so much so...
“One more term for PNoy”
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - August 9, 2014 - 12:00am
I cringe. I cringe at the mere thought of eight more years. I cringe at the thought of people suggesting a patently unconstitutional idea.
Postscripts to SONA 2014
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - August 2, 2014 - 12:00am
Picture it. You have a boyfriend who cheated on you, not once, but many, many times. He lies every time to cover his tracks. He lies to cover for his friends who are a bad influence.
Using the Marcos excuse
by Mike Acebedo Lopez - July 26, 2014 - 12:00am
Never has Noynoy Aquino been in such a bind as the past month (since the eve of my birthday when the Supreme Court ruled on DAP's unconstitutionality), and never has his die-hard supporters been as defensive and...

by Mike Acebedo Lopez - July 19, 2014 - 12:00am
As communicators, we are taught the value of both form and substance, that both are inextricably linked to each other, and that it's almost impossible for the message to be conveyed effectively if one of the two...
