ON TARGET

Thank you for video, dear friend

By

The brawl at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 3 on Sunday, which became a sensation, happened to teach its participants a few lessons.

On the part of the couple, actors Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto, it was to point out their arrogance and cavalier attitude towards small people.

On my part, that I’m no longer the spring chicken that I used to be; a vulnerable fighter.

On the part of Cebu Pacific Airlines, that it must provide efficient service to its passengers even if they pay budget fares.

On the part of Naia management, it was to point out their ineptitude to the public.

Worse things could have happened: A planted bomb in a suitcase, for example, and no closed circuit television (CCTV) camera to catch the unattended luggage in a strategic part of the airport.

It was the Universe at work: That incident had to happen in order to prevent a bigger, nastier incident from taking place in the future.

* * *

I had no reason to pick a fight that fateful day, a Sunday, at that particular hour—a little past 12 noon—as I was very hungry and my driver was waiting for me outside the terminal. I had a very light breakfast when I left Davao City at 10:10 a.m. aboard a Cebu Pacific flight.

If I were another guy, I wouldn’t have taken notice of the arrogance of a matronly-looking woman with a pretty face towards a Cebu Pacific clerk behind the complaints counter whom she was loudly berating.

I would have walked away, if I were another guy, since I was not involved. Most Filipinos would not lift a finger to help another person in distress, either because he is not a relative or they would consider it a waste of time.

But I did what I did because I always root for the underdog: The Cebu Pacific counter girl was on the verge of tears as she was being shouted at by a plane passenger.

I wouldn’t have slept that day if I didn’t come to the aid of that distressed woman.

* * *

All my years as a martial arts practitioner and self-defense expert (I’d like to think I am: 29 years in aikido; two years in judo; 10 years in kickboxing; an equal number of years in arnis, the Filipino art of stickfighting) didn’t prepare me for that fight on Sunday.

I blame myself for my excessive self-confidence bordering on arrogance.

I could have run away when I saw there were too many opponents.

But still I stood my ground since I knew I was right: I refused to hand over my cellular phone with a camera that one of them was trying to confiscate from me.

I paid dearly for that arrogance: A bruised ego.

* * *

If I were to be placed again in a similar situation, I would do what I did that Sunday.

But if I see that I am faced with overwhelming odds, I would run like hell even if people would call me a coward.

* * *

Naia General Manager Jose Angel Honrado could not explain why there was no CCTV camera at the spot where the commotion happened. All he could say was “we are still working on it.”

Since when have you been working on the installation of CCTV cameras, Mr. GM?

Years ago, two passengers about to board their planes at Naia lost their belongings— among them a Rolex watch and a bag containing close to the equivalent of a million pesos— which were never recovered.

The two passengers sought my help in my program “Isumbong Mo Kay Tulfo” on different occasions. In both incidents, I accompanied the passengers to Naia and we went to the spots where they lost their belongings: The areas were not covered by CCTV cameras.

* * *

I am forever indebted to the person who took the video of me being ganged upon and had it posted on YouTube.

Please show up so I can thank you profusely.

Without that video, my credibility as a columnist and defender of the oppressed would be in tatters since Claudine said I kicked her and Raymart claimed that I started the fight.

Thank you very much, my friend, whoever you are.

    This has to happen… for us to know that CCTV in the airport terminal is not working… Too bad Mon, you have to suffer just for the public to know that everything is not monitored in a should be very secured places.

     also when i saw you in the video that you just walked your way properly  after being beaten up, others might have dirty fingered or bad mouthed in freaking out for them to be consoled…  but still, he just exit in a calm manner.
      I was convinced that is a really way of a gentleman. Far from the label given  by the haters…

  • taga_labas

    Thanks to your black eye, we now know how “safe” we are in the airport.  Mga aroganteng tao galit sa kapwang arogante and Tulfo brothers are no different.  IMHO, Mr. Tulfo, as a journalist, per se, had the pressing duty to meddle but he stepped out of bounds when he did not identify himself as a journalist.  I would probably think of Mr. Tulfo at that instant as a perverted, dirty old man taking pictures of the lady in white shorts.  Again thank you.  Your black eye is more than enough for the powers that be to look much deeper into the woes of our airports- gateway to “more fun in the Philippines”.

  • botets

    As I was saying, Claudine should have acted accordingly and maturely, pede namnan magsamapa ng kaso o relamo sya sa visor pero kun paguurahin nya ang mga empleyado e kasagaran na yun.. ala naman na privacy at ala sya sa room nya o sa toilet kinuhanan ng pic, pero kun ako kay Mang Mon kuyugin dn ng T3 ng maranasan ni Raymart ang makuyog or kun confident pa si Mang Mon sa kakayahan nya hamunin na lang nya ng square gaya nila Robin tska Richard di pagkatapos tapos na o kundi na kaya ni Mng Mon isa na lang sa mga T3. Eto poy opinion lang naman

    • athenapallas

      bipolar at may chemical imbalance kasi si Clauclau kaya dehins nya makontrol ang outbursts at violent behavior nya. nasa lahi kasi nila yan, kasama na jan ang narcissism at self-centerd behavior, mas mild lang ng konti ang ate nyang si Gretchen na ang worst tendency naman ay promiscuity. baka kasi yung gamot nya di nya nainom dahil andun sa bagahe na hindi lumabas sa carousel kaya nagwala.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OE7WA2GFVJJ2C5ORBJ33VK5JBE alfred

      mon has no intention of starting a fight, his plan of “siding with the underdog” is through media ie: his column. 

      • 1Simona1973

        alfred – if his purpose it to write about it, he does not need a photo, just a narration of FACTS, which he does not have, because he did not even bother check what was happening nor interviewed both parties.

        did you see any of his write ups where he posted a photo?  what can a photograph tell?

  • novaliches

    kung i-add mo lahat ang martial arts experience ni tulfo, 29yr aikido, 2 yr judo, 10 kick boxing , and equal no. of years sa arnis, kahit nagsimula siya ng 15 yrs old na siya, ibig sabihin, nasa 70 yr na pala si tulfo.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XSN6RUPH7WT6SWXNSQ3P6YH32Q A

      nov, okay ang addition mo pero hindi linear ang experience ni mon.

    • victor1052

      Ibig sabihin siguro ni tulfo, sabay-sabay kinuha niya yung mga martial arts lessons. But unless one is learning from real experts, his skills are still half-baked. Bruce Lee is lucky. He learned from IP MAN, the legendnary KUng Fu master, who in turn, was a student of Wing Chun, founder of Wing Chun Kung Fu. BTW, Wing Chun was a buddhist nun.  

  • Pinoy_Reich

    Thanks for Mang Tulfo’s over confidence on his martial arts prowess at least we have seen the savagery of Philippines showbiz. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

      Hindi over confidence iyan.  Kapag matagal ka na sa martial arts at expert kuno, instinct na ang pagsangga at pag-counter.  Wala akong nakita na isa man kilos ni Tulfo na may alam siya sa martial arts. 

      • randyaltarejos

        There’s no substitute for a surprise attack. I’ll explain to you something, even if I’m not an expert but using common sense and a little understanding of martial arts. When a stronger and younger guy locked your neck with his hand in a fight, your only chance is to get hold of his thumb, or you can stump his foot with all your might to let him loosen his tight lock on your neck. At that instance,  Mr. Tulfo was down on the ground. I think Aikido is only effective when you’re standing up. When you’re down, your skills in jiu-jitsu and judo come in. That if you have. So far, these are the only things I can share. Or do you think your martial arts skills will stand up against a PEPPER SPRAY? Don’t tell me, you’ll wear a Rayband sunglasses during a fight so that spray cannot get into your eyes.

      • novaliches

         anong surprise attack, siyanga yata ito ang nauna. at kahit hindi pa siya ang nauna, malabong surprise attack yun, dahil hinihingi nga muna yung cell bago nagkagulo.

      • Pork_Republik

         Just because a martial arts expert have a cool head this does not necessarily mean he’s a fake one. Most martial arts doesn’t promotes violence but the opposite. It wouldn’t look good on Mon if he beat up Raymart badly considering being a martial arts expert, Tulfo’s feet and hands are by itself weapons as a judge would sees it. Clearly, as what we can see in the video, Tulfo was sane at all times despite being pummeled left and right, he ceased aggression when the security personnel showed up and walk away to ease tension. In contrast, Raymart followed him ans somewhat edging for another round of fistfight. 

  • taga_labas

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

    You’re welcome Pareng Mon.  But why did you have to say you were a martial arts expert for so many years then allowed yourself to be hit and taken down?  Did you already forget how to stand and block the blows?  Was it hard for you to counter the grab from the back since you’re an Aikido expert?  What happened to you was an ordinary man being ganged up and mauled.  It’s a shame to the Martial Arts community.

    Sayang, walang CCTV, according to the news, the video being shown is seven minutes after the brawl actually started. Meaning, we should not judge somebody based on that video alone. If true that you (Mon) started it, it was your lucky day that there was no CCTV.

    I sense some inconsistencies to your statements too which may lead to beyond reasonable doubt that the couple started the heist.

    • victor1052

      Tumpak! Utak ang gamitin, hindi kamao. In chinese martial arts, ang matanda at babae ang inatakutan at iginagalang dahil ang matandang kung fu expert ay master na at gumagamit pa ng utak. Ang babae naman sekretong nagtatago at nagsasanay ng kung fu, utak rin ang gamit kaya mas mapanganib kaysa lalake. Ang grandmaster ni Bruce Lee ay isang buddhist nun by the name of Wing Chun (hence, Wing Chun kung Fu).

    ‘lam mo, mon, minsan gusto kita minsan hindi. pero sa nakita ko sa video mas gusto kita ngayon, hindi lang sa lumaban ka kundi dahil naawa ako sa’yo dahil para kang basang pusang tinangkang gutay-gutayin ng maraming asong naulol!
    nangyari na rin sa’kin ‘yan, mon. pero dalawang totoong aso ang nag-agawan at nangagat sa’kin at hindi mga taong may ka-asuhan ang gawa!
    lumaban din ako, mon, nahawakan ko ang isa at inatupag ko rin ng kagat habang akap-akap ko!
    hah! i wish you were able to bit the nearest one to you, especially yung babae, hanggang napigtas ang parte ng balat n’yang nakagat mo! sa mukha sana para hindi na palabasin sa pelikula!  hindi pa naman ata pustiso ang mga ngipin mo, ‘no mon?

    h’wag mo silang tigilan, mon, no deal, no pasensyahan, no compromise, bahala na kung sino ang maulol sa inyo sa kakaisip sa problemang ‘yan. pag bumigay ka, ako ang ha-hunting sa’yo, mon, at tayong dalawa ang magka-kagatan, wala akong pakialam if you are a practitioner of all kinds of martial arts!

    Mr Tulfo I am on your side here…maybe its because its the tall poppy syndrome at work but I just dont like loudmouth name dropping bullies..but I deviate slightly with your description of coming to the customer agents aid ..
    You did not intervene per ser…from what I can gather you were noticed filming the incident (next time press video). You inadvertently ..in a manner of speaking..disrupted the procedings. The berating would have continued if noone noticed you with your phone. Its the same thing with the person you are grateful to..the person didnt try and help you…the person decided to film the incident(thank god they pressed video). Its ironic isnt it….isang telepono gustong kunin kasi nakakahiya ang pinapalabas…tapos yung isa may nagpapasalamat na lumabas kasi mga walang hiya ang pinapakita.. 
    Anyway atleast you got one the guy in the pink shirt lol he had to hit you because lolo mon(all due respect) dropped him lol and he hit you while you were down I dont care who you are or where your from thats duwag plain and simple

    Mon, that incident should also teach you a lesson to stop your braggart and bullying ways apart from being arrogant and brazen. Also, since you started the fight by shoving and kicking poor Claudine Barretto when she demanded to have your cellphone (the Youtube video didn’t capture this incident but attested to by an eyewitness), I suggest you treat women more tenderly next time. I know you treated Caudine that way because, as a woman, she was the most vulnerable to physical harm in her group.  It’s just lucky you didn’t go for her kids.  Also, shut up already.  Since this incident, you have gone all over town like a deflowered lady to tell your story in the hope of getting everybody’s sympathy.  In contrast, Claudine Barretto, the woman you shoved and kicked, just kept things to herself and just filed a legal action. SHUT UP ALREADY MON. WE ALREADY HAVE SO MUCH OF YOU!

      Mr Tulfo your in trouble….. apparently rog “KNOWS” you started it…so he was obviously was there..apparently he also “KNOWS” you kicked her because of her gender (how sexist by the way rog)..also he is apparently familiar with how deflowered women act which is also scary.”chuckle”.. and lucky you didn’t go for the kids Mr Tulfo because after their parents decided it was smart to check in their medicine medyo tagilid na ang welfare nila…..If you have had so much of Mr Tulfo…stop reading his articles…IF you are puno already its a perfect remedy…try it ….

  • jayemdee_412

    The NAIA brawl between the couple Raymart Santiago/Claudine Barreto and pals vs Ramon Tulfo which has become viral on the internet has now shifted to another venue to gain public sympathy for the protagonists – media. The experience of Raymart and Claudine as “actors” is coming in handy against the bland appearance of Tulfo. How can Tulfo beat the magnificent performance of Raymart shedding tears in public and Claudine with her foot cast in plaster and limping while she walks? Senior citizen Tulfo’s kick is no longer powerful as it used to be because it took a day to take effect. Abangan ang susunod na kabanata sa seryeng “Umbagan sa NAIA.”

    Mon, the video shown on you tube had no footage at all on how the fight started and therefore it is preposterous for you to claim, based on that video, that Raymart and Claudine’s version were not factual and yours was. If you are on the right side of the incident there is no need for you to spin anything to your favor.

    palagay ko kung nakunan yong umpisa ng away makikita natin na bulaan ka tulfo. malamang talagang ikaw ang unang tumulak kay claudine at sinipa mo rin kaya ganoon na lang ang naging galit sa iyo. may nag volunteer na nagsabi na ganoon na nga ang  nangyari. doon ipinakita sa 24 horas ng channel 7.

    Kaya aminin mo na tulfo na ikaw ang may kasalanan para sa katandaan mo man lang ay may mabuti kang mabuti.  ang arte-arte mo na ayaw mong sabihin ang tunay mong edad. BAKLA or babae ka ba?

    • gmaisthebestpresident

      HINDI yun “volunteer”. bayaran yun ng GMA para pangdamage control sa kabalbalan ng kanilang dalawang talent.

    • pedronimo

      Yung testigo na ayaw pakita ang mukha at ibigay ang tunay na pangnalan ay hindi tunay na testigo. Malamang nabayaran iyan. Eh kung ako magtestigo na sabihin ko na nakita kong binayaran yang testigo na iyan pero wala naman akong katibayan like a video at anonymous pa? paniniwalaan mo ang testamento ko.? Ganun din yang babae na iyan. Wa epek sa korte iyan,

       ”Child Abuse”? On the contrary, yung mag-asawa dapat inaalagaan at pinoprotektahan ang mga anak. Ganun ba ang nangyari? Hindi. Iniwan ang mga bata para maki-rambulan kay Tulfo. Ganun ba ang role model na artista? How un-motherly behavior, how negligent can Claudine get? Iyan ang child abuse because you failed to protect your child from a traumatic experience. Para mong itinapon sa buyawa

      Pero may laban sila sa Cebu Pacific, This notorious Airline did not even bother to inform the couple that their luggage had been offloaded way back in the departure area in Caticlan- Eh nandun pala sa naiwang bagahe and mga gamut nga batang may asthma. Sabihin mo nang iskandalosa si Claudine, but mothers will appreciate her predicament, Kaya nga lang sumubra ang pang lalait niya sa CP stewardess sa NAIA. In the presence of an intrusive Tulfo. Ka Kung sa Boracay pa lang sinabihan si Claudine about the offloading baka naman duya nadagdagan ang pressure and that ignited the violence. nag-wala ang artista. Pero walang bugbugan kasi wala naman dun si Tulfo. Baka taga-Boracay o ibang curious tourist ang linapitan ni Raymart kinuyong nga gang nila. Mga speculation lang ito pero may sustansiya.

       The bottomline: TULFO WINS OVER THE COUPLE BUT COUPLE WINs CASE AGAINST CEBU PACIFIC. Mabuhay ang Pinas! TAKING PICTURES: More Fun in the Philippines! Claiming baggage: More Fun in the Philippines!

    • 1Simona1973

      i saw an interview of tulfo right after the incident, he admitted kicking barretto, when he was asked if it was true he kicked barretto – he replied, “o, oo, kasi sinuntok ako eh”

      the day after, he was interviewed by mel tiangco if he ever kicked barretto, he replied I vehemently deny kicking her.

      i don’t condone all that were done by the santiago’s but Tulfo knows he lied too.

      i hope that first interview will be shown again so people will see.

    For more than 20 years, I have been following Mon Tulfo’s column. He indeed has a heart for the underdog. I applaud him for that. He may be brash or arrogant once in a while, but one cannot deny his compassion for the underprivileged. 

    Same thing cannot be said of Claudine and Raymart. 

    Go, Mon Tulfo, fight them in the court. You are right: It must have been the Universe working all along, with all the elements conspiring to push out the best in your humanity, to show to the world that there is justice in this world, expressed in different, though uncomfortable, ways.

    My luggage and that of a Balikbayan friend from Auckland NZ were slashed on separate incidents at NAIA, The pilfering apparently takes place in an airport depot where luggage is sent to before passengers’ arrival. The nylon bags are more vulnerable because the thief, puts a cardboard to plug the slit so the contents won’t slip out of the bag. How do I know? Kasi naiwan nga yung cardboard at you slasher. Very neat, very professional, very Pinoy, very Naia, Only when she reached cavite did she notice she had lost all her valuable pasalubong of watches and jewelry to the ichy fingers at Naia, She was tired from the flight, from jet lag, and decided against driving again back to NAIA  just to report the case which she  knew would only be junked, anyway. She suspects that NAIA management intentionally do not instal CCTV camera inside the baggage depots to hide the crime because officials are in cahoots with the thieves. Anyone who lost any bags or valuables in their bags, please write Mr. Tulfos column. Hoping he can call the attention of authorities on this shameful cases which is hurting our tourism efforts,

    • 1320

      Not to say it wasnt a filipino baggage handler but It could also have been someone from the land of the long white cloud..I know of thefts from many other flights on different airlines to and from different countries..I recommend travel insurance and give your bags a once over before leaving baggage claim area

      • pedronimo

        I could have happened only at NAIA. Kasim ker airline in Auklang advised accprdingly that hey flight will have a long stopover in Singapore and her luggage would be shipped directly to the Philippines, That was the hitch: the long  hours her luggage idling at NAIA depot gave the culprits fiesta time to pilfer their choice bags at will with impunity. NO CCTV to deter their crime, I hate to say this but Maraming talagang walang hiyang Pinoy na hindi ginagalang ang kapwa Pinoy na sinisira ang maikling bakasyon ng mga Balikbayan.

      • 1320

        I have never heard of an airline CONSCIOUSLY letting baggage go on different flights to passengers at the point of checkin….specially since 9/11 in fact, If a passenger no-shows after checki-in they have to delay the flight to offload bags for security reasons I am pretty sure its a serious breach if they dont…..I am just saying hindi lang kamay ng pinoy ang humawak sa bag…pero naiintidihan ko ang perception mo ng NAIA…

      • pedronimo

        Pare ko,

         Yung bagahe niya nag-take off from Auckand and directly flown to Manila where it was idled in the depot for several hours while she was in Singapore waiting for her flight. Eh sino pa kaya ang puedeng kumalkal ng bag niya kundi kamay ng walang hiya at gutom na Pinoy sa NAIA. I wish I didnt experience being victimized myself by my fellow Pinoys.

      I agree with you. It was Claudine who displayed i’ll mannered behavior in front of her children. Yelling bad words, shouting threats and berating the Cebu Pacific crew.. Imagine the emotional stress and trauma the children felt in this type of scenario. If Claudine had approached the service crew in civil and polite manner, I believe this trouble will not happen..

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DVP4NE2IHZLHNZIQODT3RNGNSM Lawrence

        But he refers to himself as a journalist. He’s a columnist in Inquirer but he also has radio and tv shows. I don’t think we can call him a columnist there too.

  • Peds Wang

    If you really did push off and kick Claudine when she was trying to get your cellphopne from you,then you are no worse than the people you report and criticize….the reaction of her husband and friends would be valid.Alam mo naman dito sa Pinas pag naagrabiyado anak o asawa mo,sigurado lulusubin mo ang nangagrabiyado.

  • jeproks2002

    It is surprising why the Tulfo brothers – Erwin, Raffy and Ben are quick to condemn and even make grave threats on national television for what happened to their brother and then apologize for it claiming it was brought about by “bugso ng damdamin” or passion or obfuscation.  They justify their actions and yet cannot understand why Mr. Santiago defended her wife and family?  

    Mr. Mon Tulfo castigates his brothers for their criminal act on national tv and yet condemns Ms. Barreto for berating an airline employee for a legitimate complaint i.e. lost baggage?
     

    • 1320

      Passion for family is an obviously strong emotion….apologizing for it is strength of character and also maybe alittle of strength of mtrcb lol..Defending “his” wife and family sounds just a little bit melodramatic…Complaining would have been the appropriate measure …the employee did not need to be “berated”

      • jeproks2002

        pardon for the typo error.  yes the employee did not need to be berated in the same way that there was no need for grave threats.  the point is that if one justifies his actions based on “bugso ng damdamin”, why can’t he accept the same excuse made by the other?  and to think that the tulfo brothers reacted many hours later after the incident. 

      • 1320

        I see where your coming from…but.I dont think he was justifying his bro’s actions which is why he scolded his brothers he was offering a reason not a justification…In my humble opinion I think reason and justification are mutually exclusive
        I would also argue that anger towards someone who hurt family and anger/abuse towards someone who had nothing to do with your predicament are different levels of damdamin if you are a sane and reasonable person.
        From what I can gather from the media this isnt the first time this woman has thrown a cursing name dropping tantrum.
        I am still waiting for a “bugso ng damdamin” apology from santiago corner towards the customer agent…my guess is they view the poor woman as a lowly person beneath them and not important enough to approach…I am sure I will be waiting awhile to see that apology

      Noble suggestion Mr. BEEZNET, buit based on the WRONG premise that these celbrities are ordinary people. No sir, they are mostly self-conceited, self-righteous, acting like super-idols who just from abroad bring honor to our country like Manny Pacquiao. Sorry Sir but I bet my balls Claudine won’t even recognize that Tulfo face because most celebrities do not read broadsheet columns, except Chizmis, juicy chikahan, the likes of Sweet Lapuz, Shalala, Cristy perminit, and Boy Abunda. My point is: the couples will not yiled or respect any third party intrusion- unless, maybe Security.

      But despite her noisy scandalous tongue lashiwrong ng at the CP clerk, this couple will win their against the airline because in this case they were the aggrieved victims

    • 1Simona1973

      very well said.  he should have interviewed both parties if he wanted to help.  he should get facts.

    For your information, Mon. It is not your duty to interfere kung ano yung nangyayari sa pasahero at Cebu Pac. Dapat inalam mo kung bakit nagkakaganun yung reaction ng mag-asawa naghusga ka agad na inaalipusta nila yung attendant. Kung iyon ang nangyari sa anak mo na kailangan ng gamot at di nila sinabi sa iyo na off load bagahe mo anong gagawin mo? baka sinipa mo agad sila. Yung reaction mo na ginawa sa pagkuha eh may motibo na pangsarili mo. Sana pumagitna ka at tumulong kang maayos yung situation or makalma lahat indi yung gagatungan mo pa. Tsaka indi magkakaganun yung mag asawa kung walang nanguna. Dapat di ka nanipa ng babae hindi kilala si raymart na mayabang kung di kayong mga Tulfo.

    Kung ako sa iyo lunukin mo na yung yabang mo at aminin mo na ang ginawa mo at maibabalik pa ang tiwala sa inyo ng tao. Martial Arts expert ka nga pero yung pag iisip mo indi pang blackbelter dahil sa paninipa mo kay Claudine.

      FYI Mon, I commend you for being a true journalist with a heart for the underdog, You’re senior citizen who could not stand the insults that a shocked CP steward was getting from the high-handed abrasive language of a Showbiz character and her group.

      Hindi ka mayabang kasi sinunod mo lang ang damdamin ng tunay na Pinoy Journalist and Senior Citizen. At alam ko kaya mo sinipa si Claudine dahil nakahiga ka na at kinukuyong ka, Hindi importante sa batas kung sinong “nang-una” sumuntok, bagkus kung sinong na-agraviyado.

      Hay Manny Pacman, I may be the first to throw the punch on your face but then in retaliation you lunged a knife into my abs, If I survive, I can take you to court for frustrated homicide. If I die, then the police will charge you for homicide.

      • 1Simona1973

        Tulfo is a columnist, not a journalist.  Check the difference.  That is why his ways of getting news are not bounded by professional ethics. 
        (not introducing himself, not getting the information in an honest and fair manner, etc)

        If he was a journalist, he should have first introduced himself as member of the press, get facts, know what is happening, interview both parties barretto and cebu pacific ground personnel.  Instead he only took a photo without even introducing himself, and when he was asked by Santiago what was he doing, he did not care to reply, thus the scuffle.

        A columnist is bias because they write based on their opinion.  A journalist will stick with facts and maintain objective reporting.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DVP4NE2IHZLHNZIQODT3RNGNSM Lawrence

        Check his official website:

        “Ramon Tulfo, a well-known columnist and broadcast journalist, started his media-based public service program in 1991…”

        I’m guessing he’s covered Simona.

      • 1Simona1973

        well then it does not show he is a journalist, and it is his official website, nothing but self-serving.,.  there’s a code of ethics for filipino journalists posted somewhere, and one of those ethics is you introduce yourself as member of the press or identify yourself as such, and they should get their news in an honest and fair manner, which obviously he did not observe.

    • lliam_S

      Sir with all due respect the allegation that mon kicked Claudine has not yet been proved. Witnesses have conflicting views regarding the issue of who started it first. One witness said Mon started it, another said otherwise. Until an investigation is completed, we can not determine who threw he first punch. This is not to say that I side with Mon but as I said in previous comments, Mon has no motive to kick or harass Claudine while Raymart has the motive to harm Tulfo. He is concerned that the bad publicity of his wife would be damaging to them. Another point: You can’t blame Mon for taking pity on the ridiculed stewardess. On the other hand, offloading the baggages of passengers without them knowing will surely make anyone disgruntled but what aggravates Claudine’s case is the fact that this isn’t the first time she thrw her weight around in airport so alot of people will automatically view her as the oppressor. Peace as always.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DVP4NE2IHZLHNZIQODT3RNGNSM Lawrence

        Actually he has motive. And he admitted to kicking Claudine on GMA News. Napanuod ko pa. Iba nga lang reason nya. To quote Mon:

        I’d agree. I’ve always maintained both parties are at fault. But deep down I know that I feel “if anybody needed kicking, its claudine.”

      • 1Simona1973

        i agree to this, I myself saw this interview on TV, and the interview was done on the day of the incident.

        Medyo hindi pa nga diretso masabi ni Tulfo, those were exactly his words.

        A day after, probably after he was advised, I saw his interview on TV again, with Mel Tiangco, where he vehemently denied ever kicking Barretto.

        I am not siding with the Santiago’s but Tulfo at some point is also lying.

        I hope they can show that TV interview again.

She will neither defer to your age. You already admitted in your column today that your excessive self-confidence bordering on arrogance cost you your bruised ego. That’s a good sign of a mature individual. Your opponents are young reckless people who have no feeling of remorse for having ganged up a Senior.

    I always read your column though sometimes I don’t agree with your views and opinion Mon but that incident at NAIA3 really made me believed that you did the right thing. Of course I only saw it through the video but Raymart’s statement was quite absurd. 1) how could a person just throw a jab or punch to someone who confront him if he approached him in a civilized manner? I bet he was in attack mode. 2) Judging how he treacherously held you in the neck and encouraged that coward Atilano and Claudine to maul you was quite repulsive. One jab followed by verbal argument would have been enough but no, he just showed to his children how to fight with treachery. Now, who is guilty of traumatizing Raymart & Caludine’s children? Even those Cebu Pacific’s ground staff I guess are deeply traumatized by Claudine’s outburst. DSWD should get hold of their children until they have gone  thru anger management seminar.

    Mr. Tulfo i have to admit that i find you mayabang but the incident in NAIA proved that there are
     people much more arrogant than you with over-sized egos. Just a few comments though that
    could have prevented the violent encounter.
    1. It would have helped if you had introduced yourself to Claudine and Raymart and that as
        a journalist/reporter you were willing to help diffuse the tension.
    2. I could not understand why the showbiz couple did not bring the medicines of their asthmatic
       child in their handcarry bags. Those medicines are rescue drugs and should be available
       at all times. That was the primary reason why there were so mad.
    3. On the issue of who started the fight, i tend to believe you and that as a matter of courtesy
        Raymart should have introduced himself that he is a BIG STAR and Claudine, even BIGGER 
        and that they are concerned of their image. I guess the lesson here is NOT to be  PRESUMPTUOUS that ALL of the people know you…

  • onin3

    Mon, I should confess that whatever admiration I had for you was lost when I saw that fracas at the NAIA 3. While indeed the video showed you being ganged up on, and that you were portrayed as the underdog in that brawl, the following circumstances could only paint you as the offender. I saw you interview with Mel Tiangco over GMA 7 and your preceding interviews immediately after that NAIA incident. I analyzed your pronouncements as well as the declarations of all parties involved. I could sense that somewhat somewhere, you were lying. Ms. Tiangco asked you some questions that, to my view, you fended off with a lie. A woman named “Ana”, whom you accused to be a  friend of the Santiagos, came out to testify on the incident. She claimed to have seen you kick Claudine first, which you also did to Raymart. (Please know I myself detest this couple’s behaviors, past and present; they are not at all an example to anyone and people should stop admiring them.) Ana seemed to be believable, notwithstanding the fact that your own statements in the interviews you granted appeared to be discordant and incoherent.

    Also, I detest your brothers’ projection in the media. To me, your and their character conjures an image of an arrogant, boorish, rude, rogue guys, who will not hesitate to pull a trigger to send enemies to death at the slightest provocation of egos. (Reason why you behaved the way you did at NAIA–ego.) You and your brothers berate, scream at (just like Claudine did) anyone in public, on TV or radio, who is the subject of your ire and you don’t respect them. You and your brothers project yourselves as if you had the command of the entire Armed Forces of the Philippines that you can just threaten anybody into submission to your will. It will only take anyone to watch your TV shows to find out if what I am saying here is true. The impression of the decent public of your public personas is this: Maangas, hambog, walang modo, barumbado, kayang pumatay ng tao anumang oras. All this, even if you claimed you all had been fighting for the poor and the oppressed. Forgive me if this has been harsh. (But did not your brothers just threaten the Santiagos that they just had their show now suspended by TV 5?)

    But I should also say I am humbled by your show of humility now. I am touched by the way you humble yourself and admit to your indiscretion. For your kind of persona, it is not easy–in fact it is so hard–to write in public and admit your own vulnerability. For that Mon, I salute you. I’d like to believe you are sincere. I also knew you just reprimanded your own brothers for their subsequent behaviors against the Santiagos. I hope this time, you will also realize there is more to life than whatever power or strength or connections or agility or wealth you  and your brothers may have. Everything will end. Yet there is someone sovereign over you and your brothers: God.

    While your journalistic instinct might have prompted you to intervene in an incident such as that at NAIA, you could have introduced yourself as a journalist, stated your name, and your purpose so that the people around could identify you. This you did not do so that the Santiagos’ demand for you to produce the tape could have been justified. But all this is past. Now you realize, no matter how bitter for you. Again, I salute you, Mon!

    Finally, I appeal to you that in your solitude, you ponder about the truth and about your existence on earth, the whole meaning of it, and where you find God in it.

    Alam mong nasa media ka kaya hindi pagtulong ang pakay mo kundi kumuha ng news, scoop. At this point, may right ang mga santiagos na magalit sa iyo. Issue nila yon sa cebu pacific, bakit ka nakialam. If you introduced yourself na nasa media ka, nagtanong kung ano ang problema, or approached the situation without using the camera of your phone malamang magkaibigan pa kayo ngayon ng mga santiagos, isang grupo na linalabas ang baho ng cebu pacific. Tama ba? Akala mo kasi lagi kang nasa tama e.

    You did the right thing after they mauled you by walking away quietly. In my opinion I dont agree with your brothers.  I can understand the feeling pero yung reaction sabi mo nga nangyari na eh sana di na lang sila nag kalat sa TV5 bigla tuloy kami naiinip kung magkakaroon ba ng resluta yung threat nila they are the loser here  if they cannot redeemed themselves either by retracting yung statement or gawin nila talaga I doubt kung makakakuha pa ng sponsor yung programa nila sa ganon klase palabas anyway kung meron man I dont think it will be patronize. Anyway I salute you. Sana mapag usapan nyo nang maganda yan later on but still up to you or both parties.  There are more years ahead to prove yourself, and many more people need your help. Many of us acknowledge your good works recently dun sa NBI case the same reason I cant wait wait for the arrival of your next expose for sure Mr. Tulfo will be up again on something big pero black eye nakita ko anyway Goodluck on your work about the National issue palagay ko mas importante yun. The you tube uploader did a good job, whatever they said mas malakas dating nun Kasi Gentleman ka talaga dun.

    do not judge the book by its cover is true. before that airport incident people think that mon tulfo is arrogant or siga pero sobrang bait naman pala. and those celebrity couple? looks mabait pero mga salbahe pala, pinilpilit pa kasi na maging sikat uli kahit mga laos na. mon if you run for senator i will vote for you kaya just continue being cool.

    The vid is just a part of the real story.As an old time journalist,you should not mislead the readers by making these kind of comments in your column.
    Being at Raymart’s age group,I don’t see why a young couple (w/children in tow) would mix it up with an aging 68 yr-old  like you unless ofcourse  provoked.
    But then,only God knows who started the melee.
    Btw,I’m neither pro or con..Just sharing my two cents. ;)

    • 1Simona1973

      well, he is a columnist not a journalist.  

      yes, only God knows, neither you and me were there to really witness the whole story and not just the last part of it.

      • roswell1105

        the “1st part” video is claudine and raymart’s…..ONLY ALIBI…. there is no 1st part…what you saw is what there is to it….the 1st part is their only alibi because there is no way to produce it…which give them the benefit of the doubt……and funny how claudine and raymart CONDONE Mon for TAKING THEIR pictures and yet now they are asking the public to share to them the video of the “1st part’…such HIPOCRISY on their part!…imagine mauling someone who took their picture and then asking the public to be strong and NOT afraid and share the “1st part” video?…UNBELIEVABLE!!!!….:)).. if I have the “1st part” of the video, I will not give it to them..I can’t imagine what they would do to someone who videotaped them after SEEING what they did to someone who took their PICTURES!!!….:))…simply amazing!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3UAABFPUE5ZKBXOAGLWL6POGWU joel genese

        I may not agree to you totally but you’re right. They’re furious at someone ( Tulfo ) who’s taking picture of theirs and now they are asking a video from anyone who were able to videotaped that whole incident?

      • 1Simona1973

        roswell1105 – raymart CONDONE Mon for taking their picture?  i want to believe it was just a typo error, how you use the word condone here, i know you meant the other way around.

        well, if it was an alibi, nasa kanila na yun, but one thing is for sure, the you tube vid is not a complete documentation of the whole thing, so i would not pass any judgment,although, I DO NOT CONDONE with the way barretto handled cebu pacific’s very poor customer service.  she has a valid concern by the way, and mali lang how she handled it.

        of course if someone gets a photo of you at the height of your anger, knowing in a snap of a finger, nasa you tube ka na at pagpipiyestahan ka, hindi ka rin papayag di ba?  all of us come to that point when we are at our worst, but nobody has a right to photograph you at that moment, and make you a subject of humiliation.  kung ikaw ba papayag ka na kuhanan ng picture o video ng sinupaman?

        since a legal action ensued because of the incident the santiago’s have to defend themselves, and how do you do it, logically, through a complete footage of what really happened, thus, they are now asking for someone who may have that.  in fact, the very first thing they asked for right after the incident is the CCTV which may have shown who started physical harm first, but unfortunately, there is none. 

        Iba ibang circumstansya po ang pinag-uusapan, at yung purpose kung saan gagamitin ang video.

        In the first instance – tingin mo saan gagamitin ni tulfo ang video? 
        For the 2nd part – definitely the video will be used for legal purpose, 

        So where is hyprocrisy there? what i honestly see is kapilosopohan…LOL.

        kung ikaw ang may first part of the video, and you said you will not give it?  I pity you, what do you get for not giving it?  do you feel happy by withholding it, if that video would tell the truth?  do you feel justified by doing it?  

        will your decision be the same if instead of the santiagos, it was your relatives or friends asking for that first video?

        but do not ever think im siding with the santiago’s, everybody committed mistake at some point, from Cebu Pacific, to Barretto/Santiago, to Tulfo and to the airport security..  

      • roswell1105

        i forgot the word NOT…and yes I would mind it if someone would take my picture if i am just an ordinary person…sad to say, when you are an actor you are considered a “public” property….kapilosopohan nino?…ng mga idols mo? :))…regarding yung if i have the first part of the video…don’t you know sarcasm when you hear one?…mashado ka namang literal…hahaha…it was said to show what the consequence could be for you based on what claudine, raymart and their minions did to mon…..and yes….kung me konsensha kang tao why wont you give your footage if you have it?…the absence of it hanggang ngayon could only mean one thing…..WALA……one thing is very clear….reagardless of the reason…they ganged up on a person…and too bad for them…someone caught it on video…and too bad for your idols they will go down for it…and yes, i understand your feelings being claudine’s relative ….;))

      • 1Simona1973

        first – being public property is NOT ABSOLUTE, that anybody can do anything to them, nothing is.  our actions will always be bounded by laws, morals, ethics, etc otherwise it’s chaos.

        although i am not sure if that time Tulfo was taking the photo, he already recognized barretto, because if you have been reading what he wrote, there was a point in time that he did not know who was berating the cebu pacific personnel as well as santiago..that’s why he described barretto as matronly looking woman with a pretty face, and then he described santiago as just a man whom he later identified to be the husband.

        so honestly?  only tulfo can tell if at that time he decided to take a picture of barretto, he knew who she was, as the way i understand it, he took the photo to help the ground personnel, which MAY mean, he could take a photo of anybody in that same situation, so it could be me or you or anybody.  so can he do that to you? maybe, i don’t know.  Mahilig daw syang kumuha ng still photos of people deplaning eh, so chances are he will also take a photo of you or me or anybody.  Kung yung mga nagde deplane na pasahero kinukuhanan nya how much more kung may something interesting na dapat kuhanan.

        what made you think i idolize barretto and santiago?  
        what made you think barretto is my relative? nonsense..

        obviously, you did not understand my last sentence.  

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Rams/1826483848 James Rams

    you just uncovered the two – unsavory character of these so called ‘ artista’. and many more of them should be careful from now on.. kala nyo artista kayo ..kung sino kayo.. busit.

  • 1Simona1973

    Mr. Tulfo – it bothers me that you do not also ask for someone who could have taken a video of the whole fiasco to be fair.  You thank someone who uploaded a video of you being ganged up?  Why don’t you ask someone if they have a video of everything from when it started, in the name of fairness.  Your gratitude is so self-serving.

    If you wanted to help cebu pacific ground crew, you should have gotten the facts first, interview both sides.  Though I don’t condone barretto cussing and berating, she has a valid concern, so if you wanted to help, you should have introduced yourself as member of the press, and see if you could extend some help somewhere, that is genuine helping. 

    you said others may just walk past and never care, but you did not not because you were always rooting for the underdog.  really?  so how do you root for the underdog, just take a photo of someone who was at the height of her anger (which happens to everyone) and make a juicy scoop out of it?  What then will you write in your column, that you saw barretto berating at someone with a complete photo link, and then what else?  Nothing, because you did not bother to ask for the facts, how it started, etc, etc.  

    even in your column here, you were acknowledging your arrogance, arrogance in the sense, that you thought you were still a spring chicken and with your martial arts expertise should be able to fight any opponent, how many they may be.  Can you somehow acknowledge too that you also show arrogance right there, taking a photo of someone at her worst, never bothered to reply santiago when he asked you what you were doing and instead attempted to walk away because you were hungry and your driver is waiting?  you think that was fair enough?

    Your brothers acted on “bugso ng damdamin” when they were shouting and posing grave threats to the Santiago’s on national TV.  how about when Santiago as he said reacted because of what you did to his wife? 

    I saw your interview on TV when you admitted kicking barretto, and i am surprised to see the following day, you were vehemently denying ever kicking barretto.   
    I am with you in your fight against those oppressing the lowly, but I hope you do it for everyone not selective, and you and your brothers don’t have to make “alipusta” too ng sobra sobra yung mga nirereklamo, minsan hindi pa nga tapos magsalita or mag-explain, sobrang panlalait/name calling na ginagawa.  

    Again, I support you helping the oppressed but you should exercise restraint too.  

    It’s a wake up call for you too and for barretto.

    • pedronimo

      Dear Lady, you are looking through the wrong end of the binocular. Your sense of morality or on what is right or wrong is out of this planet. You think artistas are ordinary average people who  recognize their mistakes and defer to Seniors. They won’t recognize Tulfo because they don;t read broadsheets, except for juicy scandals and Chika-minute news bordering on malice, and rumors.

      • 1Simona1973

        pedro – out of this planet?  or you simply did not understand what i wrote? LOL…

        the point there really is had tulfo tried to be a journalist that he calls himself to be (from his website), and if he was really sincere in his claim that all he wanted to do was to help the poor ground personnel he should have tried to get the facts first, get the side of both barretto and that ground personnel, things MIGHT HAVE CHANGED.  If barretto continues to berate and do not recognize tulfo’s mediation, then so be it.  It is her fall, not Tulfo’s.

        what i am saying is, if you really want to help, help by trying to have a peaceful resolution rather than aggravate things by taking photo of someone at the height of his/her anger without even bothering what made her feel that way.  

        but since i see you are very negative person, hindi pa nga nangyayari alam mo na yung magiging reaction at pinapangunahan mo na porke these people are mere artistas whom you seem so sure do not read broadsheets, then there is no point explaining to you. 

        why don’t you try to look at issues with objectivity?  stick to facts and not on the subject.  Stick to the issue and not who are involved, whether artista, educated or not, rich or poor, that way you be able to give an objective opinion sir.

    Actually,there is no big difference between a video camera and a human being! Kung ano ang nakikita at nadidinig ng video camera eh ganun din ang isang tao! But when it comes to trials in a Court,it is still the proverb “TO SEE IS TO BELIEVE” has an overwhelming advantage in decision making until the final judgement come…In short,KATIBAYAN na napatunayan na ang isang tao ay may sala or not? The only advantage of a video camera is that once you´ve play it back,”Walang Labis..Walang Kulang!”…Whereas Human Being can LIE! All his verbal testimony were always put in doubt!
         Let me analyse it deeper regarding our title to make it clear.Video Cameras and Human being are THE SAME if they were going to answer the question,”WHO..WHAT..WHEN..WHERE”…Those were all OBJECTIVES!…But,this time,Human beings HAS AN EDGE over Video Cameras in answering the question “WHY..and HOW” upon which the Cameras can´t answer?…Those were both SUBJECTIVES!
        Now,Let me ask ONLY subjective question to both Santiago and Tulfo?
    To Raymart Santiago:
    1) Why there´s a need for you to hit Tulfo?
    2) How would you characterize that hitting Tulfo was the proper response?
    To Ramon Tulfo:
    1) Why there´s a need for you to take camera?(Are you on duty? or Vacation? Or does your camera an official one or not?)
    2) How is it that you became a part of that subject (NAIA) well in fact,the problem was between Baretto and Cebu Pacific ground stewardees?

    TO THE ONE WHO SUBMITTED VIDEOS AT THAT NAIA INCIDENT

    1)WHO ARE YOU?
    2) WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE OF TAKING VIDEO?
    3)WHEN DO YOU THINK IT WAS A RIGHT TIME TO SUBMIT A VIDEO COPY AS A RECOGNIZE COPY FOR EVERYBODY?
    4)WHERE ARE YOU DURING THAT INCIDENT?

    1) WHY ARE YOU TAKING VIDEO?
    2)HOW DO YOU KNOW IT WAS A RIGHT DECISION TO UPLOAD VIDEO IN INTERNET(YouTube)..or TO SUBMIT IT AS AN OFFICIAL COPY?

    The title “THANK YOU FOR VIDEO DEAR FRIEND”…can be good or bad for Tulfo and also for Santiago-Baretto! Whatever serves it purpose will cause unrepairable damage!

    While i read your column Mr. Tulfo, i do not always agree with it, but this time, my sympathy is with you. These actors and actresses are arrogant people because they think they are popular. Yet their behaviour is more of “Mal-edukado and mal-edukada” as the way they acted and behave last NAIA incident.

    Maybe because, they are not in the peak of their career anymore, that’s why they are making noise, to be talked to, etc. etc.

    Since your brothers are suspeneded by their TV station, i think its appropriate that the TV station that this arrogant couple are still connected to make the same move and so as to show to the public that they do not tolarate arrogant behavioir display in public.

    Otherwise, people should boycott the TV station that this Arrogant couples are connected with

    Tulfo: Ganged up at 65 years old!

    That could be the right title of the news report covering the ganging up of Mr. Tulfo, now 65 years old, by the henpecked Raymart Barretto a.k.a. Raymart Santiago who were exposed as incorrigible liars, together with his termagant blabbering wife, by the You Tube video of the incident.

    ano ba yan nagsampang kaso itong thugs couple na to child abuse na trauama pa raw yong dalawang anak nila. E di ba nila alam ang ginagawa nila na sila ang itong mga pack of wild dogs. kung umatake at kuyugin si Mang Tulfo.At sinungaling pa ang dalawang mataray na mag asawang ito.Me testigo pa raw e di naman credible tignan ninyo na lang ang asta ni raymart sinundan pa niya si Mon Tulfo,walang konsenya at walang mudo.They put their own children on the same very spot by their very evil action to inflict bodily harm to Mr.Tulfo tapos maninisi sila na truama ang mga anak nila siguro. Suggestion yan ng bulok nilang abugado, kung ako man ang kapatid ni Mr Tulfo di lang banta ang gagawin ko or I will not threathen them but I will promise them that their action have grave consequenses.

Look at the video closely. Hope Mr Tulfo wouldn’t go for settlement, nang magtanda  sila.

    This humble self-critique of Mon Tulfo convinced me that he was on the side of what is right and good.  I never heard such reflections from the side of the Santiagos.  All I heard from them so far is the  “blame game”.   Even to the point of blaming CebPac as the root of all the incident.  Whatever happened to human free will?

    Mr. Tulfo,
    What about the security there too? Those few seconds that you were choked, punched and ganged up on in the video, didn’t they look like they just stood there and watched?
    Things happen for a reason.
    Don’t feel bad if it looked like you weren’t able to practice what you learned in martial arts in that situation. Di’ba ang turo din have control and restraint? The Santiago’s showed what the kind of people they truly are and what they are capable of.  It shows kung nasaan ang estado ng moralidad ng mga tao ngayon.
     
    In the video @ the precinct, Mr. Tulfo said, “nasipa ko”…he meant defensively…when he was being mauled by them.
     
    “Sinipa” is not the same as “Nasipa”  
     
    In those photos you took, there were a bunch of people in line who witnessed the incident.  Where are they? I hope they come forward.

I’m very sorry that you have been victimized by these fools who think they are Gods compared to the everyday folk.

    The video did not show who first landed the first punch.  Some said it was Tulfo while others said it was the Santiagos.  In any way, the NAIA management is really inept for not putting up CCTV in the conveyor section.  No wonder, this airport is adjudged one of the worst if not the worst airports in the world.  Tulfo could have delivered the first punch because of his arrogant way and his way of saying “I am a martial arts expert” so you dont come to me.  Both are to be blamed and my advice to the authorities is that both should be held in jail… the husband and wife and Tulfo…. End of story..

    But I will not judge whoever started the melee. One of the bloggers here by the name “beeznet,” is right.

    The incident could have been avoided if instead of taking pictures of Ms. Baretto and company you should have identified yourself and mediate. Your credential as a newspaperman may have helped calm the situation. 

  • kartuthero

    Mr. Mon I am an avid reader of your column. While I do not always agree to some of your views in your column…I do commend your bravery on that fateful day…you are indeed a true blooded Letranista…that experience humbled you I am sure…but the bar of public opinion weighs heavily in your favor! arriba!
    P.S. Showbiz people such as the Santiago couple obviously do not read broadsheets inasmuch as they do not know who you are! They appear to be really stupid…mukhang panay tiktik at remate lang ang binabasa ng mga ito at panay showbiz tsismis lang ang alam…mga bwakananginang artista talaga!!!

  • 1Simona1973

    I cannot help but pose these questions.

    1)  When Tulfo was asked where will he use the pictures he took of barretto, he replied sa column ko.  - ano yun ipopost sa column nya?  im confused, because when you write you need facts right, not pictures coz pictures cannot tell the story and he did not bother to get the story of both sides either. in fact he could have helped with the situation to cool down had he done it after identifying himself as someone from the press. 

    does he really post pictures in his column?

    2)  he also said he did not know the santiago’s to his words “hindi ko sila kilala”.  can this mean he can take pictures or video of anybody (you and me included) when he sees someone at the height of his anger/disgust minus the cussing (which do happens to all of us), walk away with it without even bothering to check what was happening, and then do whatever he wants with the picture/video,  kasi he is columnist and he has the right to do it, all for the so called “freedom of the press”.  

    being a public figure does not even apply here since he said hindi nya kilala sila barretto at santiago.

    • roswell1105

      the “being a public figure thing” does not apply to what mon did…he didn’t know them from adam, but he took pictures of the altercations for a follow up on a lousy airline service that he wrote before…he saw this as an opportunity to back up his claim of “lousy” service…..the public figure “thing would be on caludine-raymart side meaning they should be used to being photographed at all times; being public properties….figured it out yet?….:D

      • 1Simona1973

        roswell1105 – if you are reading carefully, here is what Tulfo wrote above.

        Most Filipinos would not lift a finger to help another person in distress, either because he is not a relative or they would consider it a waste of time.But I did what I did because I always root for the underdog: The Cebu Pacific counter girl was on the verge of tears as she was being shouted at by a plane passenger.

        does the above say he did it to back up his claim against cebu pacific?  watch the interviews so you could better appreciate.

        you just even repeated why i wrote about the public figure thing, read the last sentence, paulit-ulit?  LOL.

        the question you should answer actually is, can tulfo do the same thing to anybody else, taking their photo at the height of their anger, walk away and write about it?  would you allow it?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WV2PBOELQ7ND7E3Y6JBG5TKKMU Paul

        @simona, you didn’t realize he meant to use it as reference for the column? I didn’t think he had to spell it out, that he won’t post the pictures in his column.  I think both parties are arrogant, tulfo more than the couple maybe.  And you said it, he’s a member of the press, it’s an instinct to gather the news.

      • roswell1105

        if you are making a scene like how claudine must be doing that time and with the advent of high technology, someone known or unknown would definitely take your picture…..i would not allow it if someone would take a picture of me picking my nose, but then again…i will not beat him to a pulp…but you have to remember…and this is elementary….that if you are making a scandal or shouting at the top of your lungs for all the world to see…..there is a chance that they will not just opt to watch…..but even videotape it….it’s simple…it’s instinct…kaya lang sina claudine..kala nila sila lang anak ng Dyos e nambugbog na…and even have the temerity to feighn innocence sa harap ng napakalaking ebidensha….gets mo?

    • joeybg

      hindi mo kailangan maging columnist para kumuha ng picture or record someone in distress, malaki ang maitutulong mo sa isang inaapi bilang isang witness, naiintindihan mo kabayan??

      • 1Simona1973

        joeybg – picture as a witness in this case?  can the photo speak and tell you what transpired, how barretto berated or cursed (which i do not condone), etc, etc?  i have not even seen a column yet of tulfo complete with picture.

        in fact he could write about the incident without the need for a photo,  His act of taking a photo of barretto was what caught the ire of the santiagos, and when the santiago’s tried to get his phone (which is not right), he refused and that was the start of the scuffle, so kung hindi sya kumuha ng picture, i doubt nangyari yung gulo, that’s why in all his interviews, he was always asked, what was the purpose of him getting the pictures and he would always say sa column ko, which makes one wonder, do you need a photo in your column.   Get it?Try to see the pictures by the way, it only shows there 3 or 4 persons, barretto partly hidden in front of the counter, the a girl in cebu pacific uniform on the phone.  talking of helping someone in distress, tulfo could have helped better if he introduced himself as a member of the press, get both sides of the story, explore where he could be of help, baka kumalma pa si barretto at naiwasan yung gulo., kung hindi naman then so be it, it’s barretto’s fall not his.. 

      • joeybg

        pwede mong isulat ang mga narecord or nakuhanan mo ng picture, then kung gusto nila na prof or katibayan sa sinulat mo doon mo ilalabas ang picture or video mo…. palagay ko nakuha mo na kabayan ang ibig sabihin .

      • roswell1105

        if there is no video or picture to support mon’s claim na pangit service sa ceb pac, anong ebidensha ni mon? yung ke claudine na pinipilit mo na dapat hindi sila kunan being a “private” citizen (kase di daw sila kilala ni tulfo) only counts kung hindi ka gumagawa ng iskandalo…..claudine unrecognized by tulfo would not get his attention kung hindi sha nagwawala dun….the few people naman na nakakakilala ke claudine would take her pictures kase “artista” sha…..so, whats so hard to understand there?….there is a valid reason in all ways to take pictures of claudine then….kung kilala sha, kase artista sha….kung hindi sha kilala kase nagwawala sha and making a scene….even an elementary student will see the wisdom there…..kung walang nakakuha ng video sa pambubugbog ng mag asawa, malamang maraming naniwala sa “kadramahan” ni claudine…so eto lang…philippines will be a better place if we all be vigilant sa mga kakaibang pangyayari sa paligid natin…look how many crimes were solved dahil nagkataong me cctv dun….so it’s ironic that our airport…that place that links us to the rest of the world would not have a cctv…..heads should roll…dapat matanggal yung NAIA manager for letting that happen….and claudine and raymart should be jailed for acting like they own the place, the ground stewardess, cebu pac and well….lance gokongwei….

    For the information I think why there was no CCTV (close circuit TV) in the baggage area and some critical/ strategic areas of the Airport so that the FOOLISHNESS and STEALING of the people of NAIA  will not be documented, since they might be sharing it among themselves the bounty of their CRIME.  Conspiracy?, no it’s the truth.

    Tulfo perhaps is familiar with my user name as i hit him many times before for being an apparent ACDC journalist.
    This time, I am siding with him as there is no sensible agenda for him to attack unless hit first. Despie his bad reputation as a journalist, I still consider him as a gentleman and will not hurt a woman.

    Mang Mon, I believe na gusto nyo lang ipagtanggol yung mga pobreng empleyada.  Use your influence to protect the lowly paid workers.  Sa UK or US companies especially sa customer assistance counters merong mga notice informing the public that any verbal abuse or threatening behaviour towards their staff will result in getting the police involved and sometimes litigation.  It’s about time that the companies protect their employees din naman at hindi yung puro profits ang iniisip.  I believe na pwedeng magreklamo ng di sumisigaw at nagmumura.  

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/DLXXT2LAH2J36YULGJ727T6C3A Yslao Miyaki

    I respect the profession of Mr. Tulfo as a columnist/journalist maybe he was just in right place but in a wrong time. We need to look into the efficiency and customer service skill of the ground staff who handled the issue. She could have escalate the issue to the supervisor or the manager duty and let the the manager handle the case. The ground staff  cant and shouldn’t use the excuse that she is just human and should be respected as a person. I always believe that the couple’s dismay wasn’t personality directed to the staff but to the company and the ground staff should be emotionally mature enough to handle such complain otherwise if she cant handle such, resignation is always an option. Not to mention she is paid to handle customer queries and concerns.

    She’s working in a department whose customer service skills is needed and that she should know the proper protocols on how to respond on such issues. You can’t expect a passenger to go back to Caticlan and air her frustration. The whole incident could never happen if the airline was able to informed the passenger that there luggage will be offloaded.

    I for one had a worst experience with Cebu Pacific ground staff when I had my flight Cebu to Manila.

    Airport Security: Sir pa check in po ng payong yung kasi bawal po yan eh hand carry.
    Me: Sige boss no problem.
    So I check in the web check in counter and immediately approached the check in counter

    Me: Sir kailangan daw e check in ang payong ko pano ba to eh box pa ba?
    Cebu Pacific counter agent: Yes Sir.
    Me: Bakit pala ganun, kanina sumakay ako sa PAL diretso lang naman di naman ako na advise in Manila to check in the payong?
    Cebu Pacific counter agent: Sir KUNG AYAW NYO E CHECK IN ANG PAYONG EH DI HUWAG KAYO SUMAKAY

    Is this the kind of customer service cebu pacific agents were trained? Baka naman siguro ito din ang ginawa ng agent kaya nagalit ang couple?

      easy for you to say, one way of handling an irate client is to avoid confrontation when the emotion is at its peak, you engage the client when he has leveled down because that will be the time that the client will listen to you, but that ground crew cannot do that, she cannot leave her post to disengage and so she absorbed all the anger and took all the humiliation from that butangera palamura who is fluent in foul languages.
      granted, there were blunders made by that budget airline but that ground crew has no knowledge about it because the decision to off load the bags is immediate due to safety purposes, there was no time to inform the concern parties but as expected from a butangera palamura she berated the crew instead of filing a formal complain about their off loaded luggage.

    But his real purpose was to get a scoop and possibly blackmail Claudine.

      exactly! the intention to begin with is not to appease both sides, but to make a scoop. i will never believe that tulfo didn’t recognize claudine at first. the reason why he was more interested to chip in in the brouhaha was because he will get good pogi points. and i agree with you rednaxela VD that if to begin with the intention of tulfo is to pacify the cussing and bullying, then he should politely introduced himself as a responsible journalist, that this claudine should not cuss the helpless cebu pacific airline agent because it’s not her fault why claudine’s baggages we’re offloaded. but the problem was, he’s also hot-headed. so the punches and kicking.

    Mr.Ramon Tulfo…I have always been a big fan of yours and I’d say that this column that you have written for today’s The Inquirer Edition is the most prolific,honest and has bitter-sweet extracts from the truths of life….I admire how you have humbly assessed yourself that day you stood up after obtaining bruises not only to your physique but to your ego.only a true master of martial arts could ever do that,managing to  stand still amidst the raging storm….and you have proven that your integrity is intact by the moment you stood up and claim what is just rightfully yours…I don’t ever believe that it was you who started all of those sensationalized commotion as the public claims it…but all i know is,righteous men is always a prey of the wicked.and it is on that righteous indignation toward truth and justice that a righteous man pays for not only hi bruised ego but his life.The other half of the Filipino population might not understand why you still do what it is you do….but in my eyes,and even in the eyes of those who can see from beyond the things which cannot be seen,you are a REAL MAN…you stand up as a shepherd holding a pebble armed to a slingshot and aimed to a blistering GOLIATH…your writings just reflects your inner self….I admire you,Sir Mon…Send my best regards to your younger BROs.

    The Barretto’s are probably scampering to talk to all their connections.  Unfortunately for them, a lot of people do not like to get involved because this case is highly publicized and poses a high risk of embarrassment if uncovered.

    Jail time or fair compensation to mon tulfo awaits this couple who have no remorse at all at what they did.  They are even proud of it.

      May trabaho ka ba John? Hindi pakiki-alam yung ginawa ni Tulfo, It was his interest, right, and duty to record incidents of interest. Ako teacher, pag nakita kong mali ang grammar ng nababasa ko, I try to correct it not to insult but to help. Second, I think, que celebrity ka pa o kung sino man, Tulfo took the shots not because he knew Claudine but he felt that that woman was excessively insulting the CP clerk. Hindi si Claudine ang interest ng camera ni Tulfo, John, kundi and excena na nangyayaring mali. Bakit, ikaw ba idol mo seguro yung mga Showbiz, kaya ganun na lang pag-hanga mo sa mag-asawa. I tell you, Claudine and Raymart could not have recognized Tulfo because celebrities have no time or interest in reading broadsheets, especially editorials. Ang kilala lang niyan ay mga Tsismosang bakla who write gossip, rumours, scandals, and blind items, Alam mo ba  one time, si Ara Mina in an interview could not give any opinion on the Maguindanao massacre kasi hindi daw niya alam ang nangyari?

    NO BACKING OUT, if these people ask for forgiveness and wants settlement. You can forgive them but you must seek Justice. I’m sure these people have been verbally abusing, BULLYING other people.

  • Kuya_Orot

    Raymart and Claudine are at the high rage level when they saw Tulfo taking video/pictures of the matron actress berating and cussing the Cebu Pacific employee. Thinking that Mon is up to something sinister they demanded that the journalist erase or hand over his cellphone to them When Tulfo refused, that started the scuffle. After much shoving and shouting the mauling ensued. Could it be possible that your charge sheet be amended to frustrated homicide since, Raymart had been encouraging Atillano to hit you some more, ” Sige Pa, sige Pa” while choking you. That choke may cause you to pass out or die, isn’t it??

    • pedronimo

      What is so “sinister” about taking videos of celebrities in a public place? Tulfo was not shooting Claudine and Raymart copulating in bed in a private room, Second, it was not only the right but professional obligation of Tulfo as a veteran journalist to record the incident-not because the scene involved celebrities- but because it involved a scenario where based on his discretion something wrong was being committed (A woman insulting another in public). If Claudine was a smart girl, she could have given the girl her tongue-lashing away from public view, possibly in the office, and file a formal complaint. I do think Claudine had a case wrapped up against the indiscretion of Cebu Pacific, But then not the real Claudine who thinks like a Diva, always self-conscious and self-righteous. She had to drop her bomb right there and then, Kulang sa finesse and babaeng ito.

    I took a PAL flight from Davao to Manila sometime in September 2008 when I finished my contract as an engineer for a mini hydroelectric project in Davao. Since I was going home with plenty of baggage, I did not check-in one medium sized bag to save some money. I was about to enter the tube to board the plane when I was politely told by two security personnel manning the tube that X-ray scan conducted earlier revealed a small 3″ knife in the bag. I asked the security personnel to just confiscate the Victorinox knife, which cost about PhP600, so the plane won’t be delayed. But instead of doing that, the security personnel (PAL?) scrupulously checked-in the extra bag free of charge! Kudos to PAL!

      don’t fool the people mon tulfo. what was shown in the youtube video was just a portion of the whole picture. why not show the earlier part of the video that will show that you both are arrogant? if not cussed by claudine, these airline agents will absolute tell the public that you first threw the punches. you know that. the problem

      • roswell1105

        stupid people…the video did not come from tulfo…it came from someone who witnessed it and uploaded it in facebook…

  • rnoldrmada

    Well said, Mon, and it’s amazing how you can still be philosophical about that ugly encounter you had with these low-rent celebrities. I bet you majority of the folks who read about this do not believe Mr Santiago’s side of the story because it insults the intelligence. Just pure and plain unbelievable claims.
    Our country needs more folks like you….. 

  • Viktorio Ungasis Coronel

    Nahingi kasi ng free round trip tickets si claudine kapalit ng hassle. di napag bigyan ayan sumabog. haha! ang cheap!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ED6A2XHBBMQQYM4MFSZ7BMIB4M batang-gas

    Ang pakay mo lang Tulfo sa pagkuha mo ng picture o video sa mga Santiago/Barretto ay pagkakitaan ito.   Isa kang AC-DC (attack and collect, defend and collect)

  • TEAM PNOY

    hehehehehe

  • Dagul2

    The incident is based (as I personally see it) on the behaviour and attitude of us Filipinos. People involved here are well known personalities from media and movie industries of which in one way on another are being idolised by some of our less fortunate kababayans.

  • Dagul2

    Promoting tourism in the United Kingdom “Its fun to stay inthe Philippines” And as this incident was viewed by thousands of people worldwide, this should also be investigated by the Department of Tourism and DOTC (for the failure of Cebu Pacific). Claudine and Raymart shame on you! As a celebrity anyone can take pictures of you in public, again in PUBLIC. You have no right to beat up an old man or anybody just because of taking picturesof you

  • stanfordmillbrand

    ayaw maglagay ng cctv kasi makikita mga milagro

  • kaipepo

    Sana kung talagang gustong makatulong, ang dapat ginawa ni mon tulfo nagpakilala muna at pumagitna sa nagrereklamo at sa ground stewardress imbes na inuna pa ang pagkuha ng pictures.Well, hindi sana napagiisipan ngayon ng iba na meron din siyang personal interes. Pwede nga naman pagkakitaan. Kita naman ng lahat, kung hindi si claudiine at raymart ang sangkot sa away nila wala sigurong magkakainteres na panoorin ito sa youtube, lalo na kung hindi kilalang tao ang kasangkot sa away nila. Feeling celebrity at superstars din kasi itong mga tulfo’s kaya ganon ang attitude. Aral, dapat ang nakakatanda mas higit ang pang-unawa sa mas bata sa kanya. Weder, weder lang ‘ika nga nila. Lahat ay may katapat. Bukambibig mo nga lagi “bad karma’, ’di ba? Isipin mo lang lagi mr. tulfo, hindi lang kayo ang matatapang sa ibabaw ng mundo. Walang duwag lalo’t pag nasasaktan. Kaya, pagsabihan mong mga utol mo konting lamig ng ulo para hindi sila matulad sa nangyari sa iyo. 

  • TANFOGLIO

    nakakalungkot na mawala sa ere (temporarily) ang T3 program.  ito lang kasi ang nakikita ko na public service program na nakakatulong at natatakbuhan ng mga maliit na para matulungan sila sa kanilang problema. ito lang ang KILOS PRONTO agad sa mga solusyon sa kanilang mga problema. sa lahat ng taong natulungan ng programang ito dapat lang siguro na ipakita natin ang ating SUPORTA  sa kanila… MABUHAY TAYONG LAHAT…

    “I wouldn’t have slept that day if I didn’t come to the aid of that distressed woman.”

    You didn’t come to her aid. You just stood there to record it all in your cellphone obviously wanting to get a scoop.

    “If I were another guy…”

    Another guy without any ill intention of profitting from the misery of that airline crew would have simply mediated between her and the irate passenger.

    Filipinos patronizing “attack and collect” journalists like you and your brothers spell everything that is wrong with the media in this country.

  • juno93

    Where’s the moderator? What happened to my comment?

  • juno93

    You are lying Mr Tulfo……

    • shlamaa

      One mustn’t criticize other people on grounds where he can’t stand perpendicular himself.

      • juno93

        How about you?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

    Thank you, Mr. Aikido Master.

  • juno93

    Karma ang tawag dyan Mr Tulfo…….para sa mga abusong ginawa mo at ng mga kapatid mo.  Tama lang na suspended ang mga kapatid mo lalo na si Raffy….malakas mang-hamon ng kalaban pero laging sa istasyon nya pinapapaunta ang kalaban……

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BV5XUIS2NB44OMRVV42QVN4GVI Johnlove

    I have never seen you so humble Mr. Tulfo.  I hope your injuries would heal soon.  
    Please send my regards to your brothers, everyone knows they didn’t really mean it.  
    TV5 should lift the suspension as soon as possible.  

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NPON5WTAIOOBJE52P74TNVO3OU noel

    one sided ka naman ka mon…………….ala naman sa video na natadyakan mo si claudine………….kaya ka siguro kinuyog dahil sinipa mo si claudine

    • roswell1105

      you’re so stupid, ngayon ka lang cguro nag post kaya wala kang kaalam alam….WALANG video nun…engot! kase wala naman talaga, kaya nasipa si claudine kase nakakubabaw sha ke mon!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YBV2BCEPQU2GLRIEJAKO4GEMFE x-NFL

    Hmmm ..something sounds fishy . Bakit hindi nagsasalit iyong “clerk” ng cebu pacific . She is right there in front of everyone . Kung talagang may tao na nakakaalam ng lahat diba dapat siya ang unang tinanong ?
    Photos/video speaks a thousand words …not nowadays as they can be “edited” .
    Dapat nga TV5 ang mag suspend sa T3 . MTRCB they can only slap penalty sa TV5 for those comments  (wrong place …right heart ).
    Hope the truth surfaces …

    • Guest

      I have read from the news that the airline staffs, who was/were the subject of Claudine´s badmouthing was/were advised by their employers not to comment on anything for now. She could not come to work for 4 days after that traumatic incident that happened to her.

      • Guest

        Tingnan mo naman ang asal ni Claudine mukhang siya ang manlulusob at manggagangga. Kung lapit siya ng lapit sa personal space mo, natural na kung hindi ka iiwas eh itutulak mo ang arroganteng lapit ng lapit. Kung magsisipa at magdefensa sa sarili si Mon habang siinasapok nila ito at sakal sakal ni Reymart si Mon eh ano ang karapatan ni Claudine na magdemanda?

        They have been manipulative & abusive by including their children in this case. Wala namang kinalaman ang position ng mga bata rito sa lahat ng pangyayayri. Kasali pa sa kwento ni Reymart ang tanong daw ng anak niya kung nakulong na ang nanipa sa mummy niya. Bistado na kayong mga sinungaling. Abangan ang child abuse case na demanda. Kung panalo nga kayo.

    NAKAHIGA AT NAKATIHAYA SI TULFO, TAPOS NAKA-IBABAW SA KANYA SI CLAUDINE
    …SI RAYMART PINANONOOD LANG ANG ASAWA AT SUMISIGAW PA NG “SIGE PA..SIGE
    PA”… ANG BABASTOS NINYO, SA AIRPORT NYO PA GINAGAWA YAN…

    • joeldcndcn

      ha, nakatihaya si mon tulfo at pinatungan at inupakan ni claudine barreto,  walang patawad naman itong “star” na ito, in public pa, he, he, he? bakit kasama ba sa “script” ‘yan, Direk, ha? malaking eskandalo nga naman at sa NAIA pa ginawa, kuha ba talaga sa Utube, tsk, tsk, tsk?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/75UCPRGGDOLZWGXXCIFVXF37EA J

    Claudine was kicked?  HAHAHA..  Look at the scratches. If she were really kicked, it would have been black and blue.. like a black eye.  BUT NO!  The scratches shows that Tulfo did not directly kick her.  Ask any forensic expert!

  • dannylao

    I never liked you Mon, you are right, you are arrogant. But I too saw the video and  I believe you. I find the story of Raymart and Claudine incredible! I hope though that you have really learned your lesson and next time RUN!

  • queen1972

    Si Raymart, Claudine and a certain “Anna” lang ang nagsasabing ang mag asawang Santiago ang dehado,  Si Mon at yung 2 airline representatives, iba naman yung version.  Shempre kanya-kanyang hugas-kamay na yan.  Pero, teka, mabalikan nga natin yung VIDEO.  Raymart and Claudine, ano ang masasabi nyo sa nakikita nyo?  Ang KAPAL kasi ng mga mukha niyo!  Kayong mag-asawa ang dapat ikulong!  Child abuse case ka dyan!  Bobo!

  • joeldcndcn

    to be honest i am not a fan of mr tulfo, neither a member of a “bakya crowd” fan club that follows claudine barreto and raymart santiago, but, mr tulfo had all the right & freedom to take those foto as a journalist because it was done in a public place; and the law don’t allow the “bakya crowd” stars to get the personal camera or phone of mr tulfo, that would be “stealing & robbing”  in the part of the 2 “bakya crowd” stars, tsk, tsk, tsk? well, let the court decide who has done the illegal thing(s), HE, HE, HE!
