“Simulan” is an award-winning video created by by Kultura, Arte at Himig (KulAHig). The song was rendered by a Tacloban-based group of alternative (or ethno-tribal) scene musicians. The song promotes change within one’s self which is also the same advocacy of Boto Mo iPatrol Mo: Ako ang Simula (BMPM), by ABS-CBN’s. BMPM is an election-focused citizen journalism project which calls on everyone to help in the reporting of any wrongdoing to compel all authorities to take action.
According to KulAHig‘s lead vocalist, Tata dela Cruz, the song was composed since the 2007 Independence Day inspired by how Filipinos seemed to have lost appreciation for the freedom they enjoy.
The song talks about how each citizen must start change within them to transform society. The ‘Simulan’ video recently won the UP Largabista Film Festival.
Dela Cruz said her group’s message in their ‘Simulan’ song runs parallel to the campaign of BMPM.

The authorities are now on the lookout for the world’s smallest bomb yet, called, Binary Bomb. This explosive is so small, that its size can be compared to a tip of a match stick. But is this for real? It is just right that our authorities take this seriously, because in this world, nothing is impossible nowadays. With the fast-paced technology that we have, improvements in such kind of explosive is not far-fetched. Anyway, there is nothing wrong in taking precautionary measures. In any case, prevention is always better than cure.
You may see how the bomb is produced here.
