QUEZON CITY, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs Transformers aim to maintain their no-games-lost record at the UNTV Cup this season; a tour de force by the team after toppling every opponent in the first round elimination.
For this, the Transformers, headed by Coach Kenneth Duremdes are preparing rigidly for their upcoming match against the ferocious MMDA Black Wolves, who are known for their run-and-gun play on the UNTV Cup hard court.
“We will prepare hard kasi sayang itong record namin… hardwork and kailangan namin ituloy. Itong laban ng Bureau of Customs para sa transformations,” Coach Kenneth Duremedes said.
(We will prepare hard because we don’t want to waste our record. Hard work and we need to continue this fight of the Bureau of Customs for the transformations.)
Although the BOC have proved to be the team to beat this season, they admit that the road to finals is no cakewalk.
Assistant Coach Bong dela Cruz added, “Every team dito sa UNTV Cup very tough, lahat sila naka-prepare, lahat sila magagaling so kailangan ready kami every game. Yung conditioning namin, yung stamina namin and yung strength namin kailangan mag-double effort kami.”
Every team here at UNTV Cup is very tough. They are all prepared. They are all good. So we need to be ready in every game. The team’s conditioning, the stamina, and strength, we need to make double effort because we are going into the second round.”
On the other hand, the MMDA Black Wolves, who now possess a 4-3 win-loss record, are gearing up before taking on the Transformers.
MMDA Head Coach Mandeville Martires expressed, “Number one sa kabilang bracket yan, hopefully kumonekta yung defense namin, yun ang hinahabol ko sa game na yun.”
(They are number 1 in the other bracket. Hopefully, our defense connects. That’s what we are after in that game.)
Meanwhile, Bureau of Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon calls on other government agencies to take part in the league of public servants.
“Second round na tayo, pasalamat kami nakapasok kami dun. Hindi kami natalo sa first round… I also encourage the other government agencies to participate para mas masaya, 13 pa lang tayo gawin nating 20 yan mas maganda.”
“Of course, sa mga supporters ng UNTV Cup, please continue to support it this is a very nice public service.”
(We are thankful that we are able to enter the second round. We did not experience loss in the first round. I also encourage the other government agencies to participate to be merrier. We have only 13 teams. Let’s make it 20. That’s better.)
(Of course, to UNTV Cup supporters, please continue to support it. This is a very nice public service.)

MANILA, Philippines — The transport group, Pinagkaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper at Operator Nationwide (Piston) was undeterred by a pending complaint against their leader, George San Mateo, for violating Commonwealth Act 146 or Public Service Law that was initially filed by Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for the transport strike the group held last February that affected a lot of passengers.
On Monday, the group will begin their two-day nationwide transport strike opposing the government’s jeepney modernization program.
To avoid inconveniencing passengers, Malacañang has suspended work in government offices and classes in all private and public schools nationwide on Monday.
Even the Supreme Court, House of Representative and the Senate also declared work suspension.
The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) prepared 41 buses and trucks to provide free rides. Some private buses are also on standby.
“There are six staging areas, with government vehicles for libreng-sakay and private buses non-aircon 10, Aircon 12 will be stationed,” said LTFRB Spokesperson Atty. Aileen Lizada.
Meanwhile, the MMDA also suspended the number coding scheme implementation today on all public and private vehicles. This is to give opportunity to all motorists to travel and not be inconvenienced by the transport strike.
The LTFRB gave another warning to remove the franchise of all drivers and operators participating in the transport strike. — Mirasol Abogadil | UNTV News & Rescue
