Just my opinion
By Raïssa Robles
Now that Senator Bong Revilla is in detention, his wife Congresswoman Lani Mercado-Revilla made a startling revelation: Bong Revilla – her action movie fantasy star husband who shot to fame portraying Flavio, the blacksmith (“Ang Panday”) on the big screen – cannot stand the heat in his cell.
Mrs Lani Revilla told ABS-CBNNews.com:
“Tumataas ang BP niya pag mina-migraine siya yun yung problema so we have to control that at yun ang pinakausap ko sa kanila, if that happens pwedeng mag cause ng aneurysm. Puwdeng pumutok kasi ang ugat niyan eh.”
Was Congresswoman Lani Mercado wearing diamonds while asserting her husband is not a thief?
How did Senator Bong Revilla stand the heat while campaigning under the sun? Without an air-cooler.
And how was he able to stand the heat while portraying the title role of the blacksmith Flavio in his fantasy movies “Ang Panday”? Without an air-cooler.
Did he also suffer from numerous bouts of migraine headache while shooting his movies and while campaigning for re-election under the searing heat of the sun? Without an air-cooler.
And yet he persevered and continued to campaign outdoors. He continued to shoot scenes for his movies. Without air-conditioning. Without an air-cooler. Without a hat. While wielding a sword that glowed with heat. He even handled a meteor to craft the sword.
Watch his movie trailer:
What an admirable chap.
But wait a minute.
Shortly after he was detained yesterday in the police custodial center on the charge of massive theft of tax money intended for the poor – and that includes many of his movie fans – his wife publicly begged for him to be allowed an air-cooler. Because if he has no air-cooler the police might end up rushing him to the emergency room of a hospital.
His actress-wife said:
“Mas mapapamahal talaga sila kapag may nangyari na emergency [at kailanganing] dalhin pa sa ER (emergency room).”
Hmmm. Ang Panday never ever told the viewing public that in reality he was the exact opposite of Flavio, the movie hero he has been playing. The movie hero whom his fans so adored that they voted the actor into the Senate.
But now comes this great contradiction: How can “Ang Panday” Flavio, wielder of the meteor-sword, complain of the heat in his detention cell when heat is part of what turns him into a super hero?
Will Senator Bong now confess to his millions of movie fans-turned-voters: Look guys, I was just play-acting. Sa totoo lang, I can’t stand the heat.
Horrors. Does his entire career consist of special effects?
This is just the first step. Before you know it, his wife will ask for him to have an air-conditioner. In a nice room. In a mansion. In Cavite.
UPDATE as of 5:05 PM, June 21, 2014
Senator Bong Revilla now seems to be bothered by the roaches and rats in his detention cell. He mentioned their presence to his lawyer Salvador Panelo and to his wife Lani.
Wait a minute. As Flavio in his “Ang Panday” movies, Sen. Bong fought with pre-historic monsters the size of dinosaurs. And he’s bothered by small roaches and rats?
And by the way, his wife forgot to tell the public that Revilla’s cell has a window and a ceiling fan, according to a Philippine Star report.
Hindi ba ‘t si Jinggoy e nag portray din ng “Ang Pandak?” este Ang Panday even before Bong Revilla?
Hindi ito ordinaryong kaso ng pagnanakaw kaya mahalaga ang kalusugan ng mga akusado..Pano uusad kung hindi sila makakadalo sa hearing dahil may sakit sila? isa pa d ba gusto naman ng lahat na malaman ang katotohanan?
with that kind of argument, dapat mansion arrest na lang, ano.
bluebird at 28 said, dapat hospital arrest daw upang makadalaw si krista miller. I reckon that should make bong revilla very healthy and happy. mag-threesome sila ni lani, ha, ha, ha.
June, ang character sa pelikula at iba sa tunay na buhay. Si Bong as a Panday ay ilusyon lamang, parang bangungot. Kailangan lang magising.

hindi lang kalusugan ang mahalaga, pati buhay at pag-iisip.
pero ang totoo, mas gusto nilang magtagal ang trials.
malapit na ang 2016.
laya sila pag kakampi ang nanalo.
ganon yun kasimple.
kung pagbibigyan ang lahat ng hiling, e di para lang silang naglibang sa piitan.
halos lahat ng vip’s na naakusahan, walang ginawa ang kanilang depensa kundi ang patagalin (i-delay)ang paglilitis.
Kapag mas lumala nga naman ang kondisyon ni Sen.Bong mas malaki ang magagastos.At isa pa lalong tatagal ang imbestigasyon kapag naconfine din siya tulad ni napoles
kung gusto mong sumali sa diskusyon dito, pls lang, isa lang pangalan ang gamitin mo. Tatlong pangalang ang ginagamit mo ngayon – dondi, Faith at June. Kasi pag ganoon, ang labas ay isa kang troll.
Yung isang comment mo sa ilalim ng pangalang faith ay –
“May edad na kasi si Bong ngaun kumpara nung gumagawa siya ng pelikula noon.Mahirap sabihin kung bakit hindi na niya kaya ang mainit na panahon.Cguro para sa akin,kung kaya namang ibigay ang hinihingi niya ibigay na lang,at kung hindi e di wag.Wag na sanang palakihin pa ang issue.”
Sus ginoon, may edad na ba ang 48 na taong gulang?
Lelong na ba pag 48?
Kala ko pa namang si Flavio na Ang Panday siya :(
akala ko, kapag medyo tumanda ang tao ay tumitibay at maging mas-adaptable ang katawan niya. at 48, he’s at the top of his mental prowess, his reasoning is maximized and his experience is 2nd to none. I bet bong revilla regularly goes to the gym for fitness and exercise, or maybe, he has gym at home and has his own personal trainer. has he not participated in fun runs?

huli ka balbon, 3 kasarian.
lalala araw-araw ang tama ni pogi.
hindi siya sanay na makulong.
at masisira ang Flavio-macho image niya.
ang migraine ay para lang sa mga may buwang mens ng isang babae.
ngayon pa lang ay nagmamanifesto na ang tunay na kasarian ni pwogi.
hindi na pelikula ang kinasadlakan niya.
totoong buhay na iyan.
anyways, welcome kat jinggoy na magkita silang mag-bff sa loob.
