    1. I still can't believe that Ramos won over her. Fidel Ramos was hardly popular!

    3. Anon 11:44, what do you mean hardly popular? He was one of the EDSA Heroes. Malamang hindi ka pa pinapanganak nung time na yun, ineng.

    3. "we never had" teh. Anyway, true. Siguro kaya din di sya nanalo kasi di natin sya makakasama ng matagal if ever. Hayy! I voted for her. RIP Sen. :(

  10. She served her country with wisdom, honor, conviction and dignity, even when she took the unpopular opinion. With the kind of leaders our country has recently elected into office, from the top to the bottom positions, it will be a long time before we see another intelligent, funny, and honorable person like her in government. She is truly inimitable and will be sorely missed. Rest in peace now, Madam.

  11. Sad. Times like this make you think how badly we need someone like Senator Miriam in the senate. You will be missed.

    1. Our senate is hopeless, so with our country. Few are those who are willing to serve our country, they are overpowered by those with the machinery and money, willing to make them work for their own personal motives.

    2. My exact sentiment... Nakakalungkot na ang inabutan nating senators Ay puro grandstanding at payabangan. Nasaan na yung mga katulad ni MDS, Salonga, Joker , Roco ..

  14. Naiiyak ako, siya talaga ang senator na minahal ng bayan. Kahit seryoso siya sa trabaho niya may mga witty jokes siya. The Senate is so different without you. May you Rest In Peace.

    1. Believe me, It would have doNE her more harm to be in the Senate with those monkeys in there right now. Kay Pacquiao palang baka high blood pa ikinamatay nya. Knowing the way Miriam was. Haha

    2. 11:48 tama ka! Si lito lapid nga hindi nagsasalita pero hina high blood ako makita ko lang mukha! Isama mo pa si bong revilla at jinggoy ngayon pacquioa pa! Suskolord, mayayamot ka talaga!

  15. Quite shocked. RIP and sincere condolences to the loved ones of Madam Miriam.

  16. She was not the perfect politician but I have always admired her willingness to serve the country. Her public service record is undeniable. One of the greatest senators we ever had and she would have been a great president too had cancer not taken over her body. May you rest in peace, Sen. Miriam.

    1. Binantayan ko pa un bilangan sa election nun una nyang pagkandidato bilang presidente. Tumitigil ako sa paglalaro kapag may updates na tungkol sa bilangan. Tapos nun sinabi ng matatanda na "matatalo na yan, nagbrown out na". Di ko pa nun maintindihan bat nila nasabi un. After ng brown out dun ako unang namulat ukol sa corruption.

  60. No other senator one can ever replace her bravery, courage, determination, credibility and intelligence. Now that she's gone, we don't have anyone challenging the likes of Pacquiao or any other "novice" and "inexeperienced" senator for that matter. May you rest in peace "Madam President" #Salute #MyPresident

  72. Never have I cried over the death of a politician. But she's a hero to me, from childhood and until now. Am sure am not the only one who feels this way. She was indeed dazzling in her brilliance, watching her demonstrate how her brain works is captivating to say the least. She was THE MDS even before the public was exposed to her acerbic humor. I will miss her expertise in politics and the law, I will miss her mastery of argument, I will miss her mightily striving to always excel. Never have we seen so much passion traverse across the 3 branches of the PH government, and tbh, I don't think such can happen again in the next few lifetimes. She is one of a kind, beautiful heart of service, and a truly truly, beautiful mind.
