(SPOT.ph) The week started off with lots of rain, and there was even a sighting of a tornado in Manila. Despite the bad weather, large groups gathered in Luneta to make a stand against the burial of former president Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
In entertainment news, it's the battle of the exes in social media, with the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Andi Eigenmann and Jake Ejercito airing out their issues for all their fans to see. Bring out the popcorn!
"I merely stood up for myself. And that is something I will not apologize for." — Andi Eigenmann after a series of tweets directed at her ex, Jake Ejercito.
You better not mess with her.
“Being president doesn’t always mean you are right.” — Ces Drilon on Duterte’s decision to have Marcos buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
“An immoral woman, insofar as the driver’s wife is concerned, it’s adultery.” — President Rodrigo Duterte on Sen. Leila de Lima.
Politics usually remind us of an ongoing teleserye these days.
"I am not the enemy here. Stop portraying me as one." — Sen. Leila de Lima reacting to accusations hurled at her by the president.
It's hard to tell who the real enemy is anymore.
“Kung meron man silang nararamdaman ngayon, maganda 'yon para sa kanila, ‘di ba? Lahat ng pwede nilang gawin, pwede nilang gawin.” — Zanjoe Marudo on the rumored romance between his ex Bea Alonzo and her ex Gerald Anderson.

We’re a very musical country indeed.

Traffic is so bad, even Pokemon is getting dragged into the mess.
