Hindi ko po ugaling magvoice out ng kung ano anong ONE SIDED STORY, katulad po ng ginawa ni Ms. Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla, but, IN THIS SITUATION, I HAVE TO DEFEND MY FATHER.
This is the opening statement of Kath Novena, daughter of DENNIS NOVENO, the QC Hall employee who was accused of hitting a taxi, then trying to confiscate the driver’s license of the taxi driver he just bumped and kicking the taxi cab.
The loving daughter of Mr. Dennis Noveno, who is taking up law at the San Beda College wrote a lengthy narration of the incident, giving the public the other side of the story to clear the name of his father who has been maligned and called by many names on Facebook.
(YES, AROUND 4PM)
Nagddrive si Papa along Podium then may nagcut sakanya na taxi sa harapan, pero pinagbigyan na sya ni Papa, so hindi na nya pinansin. May traffic cone which is pa-right turn, and nandun nakalane si Taxi Driver, (usually pag nasa lane ka na ‘yon, magrright turn ka talaga kasi yung dulo is traffic cone na paright turn), si Papa naman, nasa kabilang lane kasi derecho lang yung way nya. Then si Taxi driver biglang kumabig pa-kaliwang lane kung nasaan nakalane si Papa, AT DAHIL DOON, NAGASGASAN NI TAXI DRIVER YUNG SIDE NG SASAKYAN. Bumaba si Papa (which is a normal reaction of every driver, na kapag nabangga or nagasgasan yung sasakyann na dala eh magagalit talaga), eto pong si Taxi Driver nag attempt na tumakas, inapproach po sya ni Papa and nalaman nyang matanda pala yung taxi driver. Nung inapproach na ni Papa yung taxi driver, si taxi driver nag maang-maangan as if hindi nya alam na nasagi nya yung sasakyan na dala ni Papa. Nag ask si Papa ng license para malaman kung anong pangalan ni Manong driver at makapagcomplain sa proper authority. Si manong driver, ayaw nyang magbigay ng any identification, at dahil sa incident na yun, nag build up na yung traffic. Dumating yung security guard, nag ask kung anong problema, then sinabi ni Papa yung nangyari. Tumawag ng traffic aid yung security guard and hinarangan yung taxi para hindi makaalis. Since mahaba na yung traffic, nagdecide nalang si Papa na pabayaan nalang yung nangyari at dahil sa inis, napa–sipa sya sa door ng passenger’s seat sa likod WITHOUT KNOWING NA MAY MAG-INA PO DOON (pero wala naman pong nasaktan kasi door yung sinipa and closed yung door, nasa loob yung passengers). Then, nagsalita si Ms. Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla na umiiyak na yung anak nya. Humingi ng pasensya si Papa kasi HINDI NYA NAPANSIN NA MAY NAKASAKAY PALANG BATA SA LIKOD (around 12-16 years old) AND saying na “Pasensya na po kayo. Hindi po ako nagagalit sainyo.”, at hinayaan na silang umalis. Yung Father ko and yung driver LANG ANG NAGKAPROBLEMA kasi nasagi ni Manong driver yung sasakyan.
Umalis na din si Papa sa place ng incident, after umalis nung taxi driver, at nung pau-turn na sya papuntang Megamall, pinapara sya ng MMDA. Bumaba si Papa para makipag usap at alamin kung ano yung violation nya. Iniformed nung MMDA si Papa na nirereklamo daw sya ni Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla (YUNG PASSENGER NG TAXI DRIVER) dahil natrauma daw yung anak nya (na around 12-16 years old). Nagsisisigaw si Ms. Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla habang tinuturo si Papa na tinrauma daw yung anak nya. Dinefend ni Papa yung sarili nya kasi wala naman syang ginawa kay Ms. Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla at wala syang intention na matrauma yung anak nya. Sinabi nya pa na sya yung nabangga ng Taxi na sinasakyan nila at in the first place sya pa yung dapat magcomplain pero hindi na nya ginawa. After masabi ni Papa yung side nya sa MMDA, hindi naman sya hinold kasi wala naman syang violation.
To Ms. Meh–Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla, my Father sincerely apologize to you and to your child if his action inflicted trauma. AGAIN, IT WAS NOT HIS INTENTION TO DIRECTLY CAUSE TRAUMA, IF THERE’S ANY, TO YOUR CHILD. He was in the verge of his emotion at that time, and I think it was completely normal that he acted that way, because he cannot do anything regarding the situation. Normal lang naman po na mainis, AND AGAIN, HINDI NYA GINAWA YUNG ACT NA YUN DIRECTLY AGAINST SAYO AT SA ANAK MO PO; HINDI NYA DIN PO ALAM NA MAY BATANG NAKASAKAY DUN SA TAXI; HINDI PO SYA YUNG NAKASAGI, SYA PO YUNG NASAGI, DIBA? Alam nyo po yun Ms. kasi nga diba nandoon ka po that time; AT LALONG HINDI NYA PO KAYO TINAKBUHAN OR TATAKBUHAN, he even sent a message to you. If you think you have a cause of action against my father, that he directly inflicted injury or damage to you and to your daughter, then prove it, and file a case against my Father. MAKE A PROPER COMPLAINT PO, HINDI YUNG POST LANG PO DITO SA FACEBOOK KASI CHARACTER ASSASSINATION NA PO YUNG GINAGAWA NINYO;
To EVERYONE, especially yung mga nagjujudge and mga nagbibigay ng side comments na hindi maganda, THERE ARE ALWAYS 2 SIDES OF EVERY STORY. HINDI PO MASAMANG TAO YUNG TATAY KO. Wag po tayong basta bastang magpaniwala kung ano po yung mga nababasa naten sa social media, HINDI LANG PO SA CASE NA ETO, BUT SA LAHAT, especially if it concerns complaints at kung hindi naman po talaga naten alam kung ano yung mga TOTOONG PANGYAYARI. WAG PO TAYONG MAGDEPEND SA ONE-SIDED STORY LANG.;
LASTLY, TO EVERYONE NA MAY COMPLAINT AGAINST ANY PERSON, FACEBOOK IS NOT THE PROPER VENUE. God bless!

In case you did not read the viral Facebook post of Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla, wherein she accused Mr. Noveno of trying to run away from the taxi he just hit at around 4 P.M., Sunday, December 18, 2016, in front of the Podium.
The Podium is a shopping mall located along ADB Avenue in the Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong City.
According to Ms. Meh-Ri Joh-ee Alquiza Balilla, before Mr. Noveno escaped from the scene of the bumping incident, Mr. Noveno allegedly asked for the driver’s license of the taxi driver, but the taxi driver refused.
Furious for failing to confiscate the driver’s license of the taxi driver, Mr. Novena allegedly kicked the side of the taxicab where a child passenger was seated, thus frightening the child. Traumatized, the child cried thereafter.
Tinakbuhan n nga ninyo ung taxing nasagi ninyo sa harap ng The Podium kaninang 4pm ng hapon sinipa pa ninyo ung pintuang may bata.
Alam nyo bang natrauma ung anak ko pagkatapos nyang magulat sa pagsipa nyo sa taxi umiiyak ung bata…
