Mayor Guia Gomez maybe ending her term as mayor, but there is a job she keeps in her lifetime, to be a mother to Senator JV Ejercito. As her only son she is in full support of him in every step of the way, which is why she joined politics to continue his son's plan for the city which was JV's legacy.

They say that a Senator's pride is in the laws he has authored, and for reelection candidate JV Ejercito it is the universal health care (UHC) law or Republic Act No 11223 is what he banners as its principal author. With this law, it aims to provide quality healthcare for all Filipinos with structure and system that will benefit everyone especially those below the poverty line.

But this is not only the bill the JV has done in the senate. He has also authored bills that reformed local housing, economic affairs, and educational system.  Currently he is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Economic Affairs and the Committee on Urban Planning, Housing and Resettlement and Committee On Health And Demography.

Senatoriable Angelo De Alban Steps Forward

There are new aspirants for the seats in the Senate this coming 2019 midterm elections, and lawyer and educator Angelo De Alban comes forward to take that chance to push reforms and make necessary action that favors the simple folk like him.

His name is not the usual name we usually hear in politics, at age 37, he is one of the youngest senatorial nominee that filed their certificate of candidacy. But there are some people who considers him as a nuisance candidate on the grounds that "he is just a lawyer and teacher." He quickly answered these allegations with a formal response to COMELEC (Commission of Elections), to show his capacity to run answering all points of the argument to show proof of his capacity as a candidate.

BLAH BLAH BLOGS: To Love & Hate Miriam

It has been a long time since I had my personal commentary again on politics, and the reason I came back here is to talk about the colorful life of the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago who just passed today. It was a sad day for Filipinos who had seen the spectrum of emotions and life events of the extraordinary senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.

Not so long ago, we still saw her as she went on the last biggest fight she had as one of the five presidentiables along side Binay, Poe, Duterte and Roxas. Despite having a lot of love and support Miriam lost, which added to her bid of the presidency which she ran in 1992, 1998, and this year. She was the underdog, no huge campaign money, machinery, and the likes. However, she did have a lot of volunteers and fans. These were the people who tirelessly campaigned for her in many ways and most of them in social media. She was a social media star not only of her political views and stands but also grounded with the wit and charisma of engaging the youth and young professionals.

Merienda With Senatoriable Sonny Angara


Though I met a lot of celebrities and personalities, I do want to meet politicians, and future leaders of the country. As shapers of the future of the nation, I as a citizen would like to meet and ask them questions that has been in my mind, which could affirm my loyalty or change my support. 

In the past years, I have been able to meet some of them but would have so little time to ask them questions, since I was not yet a blogger back then. But now I was able to meet and know them more personally. Recently I met Senatoriable Sonny Angara, who is the son of Senator Edgardo Angara, and also a congressman in  Aurora Province. 

My family was associated with the Angaras back in 1998 elections, when Sen. Edgardo "Edong" Angara ran for Vice President, we did campaigning and postering in Laguna. My mother knows his Senatorial staff and at some point helped us when my father needed medical assistance. And last year, I met Sen. Angara at the Senate together with other bloggers. I notice that they both share the same passion as lawyers and the legistlature and working low-profile.
