Amazed, overjoyed, uplifted, inspired.

The past several days since the official start of the campaign period, I watched the sorties of VP LENI in several towns in Bicol (she is a Bicolana), Batangas, Laguna, Bataan and this morning at the QC Circle in Quezon City.

Imagine the crowd in every place that her team visits, simply amazing. Reading and blogging went to the backseat the past several days. Could not get enough of the news on VP LENI. If I were five or ten years younger and my immunity won’t be compromised, I’ll be there. I experienced throwing confettis, attending rallies and programs at Ayala Avenue when Ninoy Aquino died and we were so dismayed at the result of an election where Marcos won again. That was the start of the Edsa People Power Revolution. People though easily forgets that we ousted Marcos in 1986. Now another Marcos (his son) is seeking the presidency. We could not afford another Marcos in our midst. We could not afford a liar. They haven’t returned their multi-billion loot from the country’s coffers several years ago.

I copied some photos of the crowd at QC Circle this morning. How I wish I could share all of them with you. This is the first time in the history of Philippine elections that the voters are spending their own money to help VP LENI win.

What a laughable scenario, if not really disgusting. In 118 years, past presidents have the highest country debt pegged at 6.1 trillion in 2016 while duterte accomplished more than double that in five years that he is in office. We now have a staggering 13.7 trillion debt under his administration according to reports. Maybe even Nate’s great grandkids in the future will still have to pay for it. If you ask me, these last five years were the worst time in our history. I wish the ICC would hurry in its investigation of the human rights violation by the present administration.

Joeam, one of my friends at Facebook asks, “What part of due process is in killing someone? Duterte started the idea that cops should kill, dela Rosa implemented it, a whole government enabled it and media reported the deaths as if, that’s the way we do it here.”

There you go, cops got a corresponding amount for every head they gun down. Gosh, it is as if one life is not important. We never heard them arrest the drug lords. As we say in Tagalog, “kapit sila sa patalim”.

Today is another pink Wednesday. Every Wednesday and Saturday, you see everything in your newsfeed in pink. As I have said before, it is all voluntary from concerned citizens all over the land, even most Filipinos living abroad who wants democracy back.

Here is my profile photo. I am voting for VP LENI ROBREDO.

Yes, today was not just a sea of pink, it was an ocean of pink.

This pink motorcade caravan has truly become a movement. Imagine, all over the country. It delivered a strong message to the powers-that-be. It is just like the Edsa people power back in 1986. This time, bikes, motor cycles, tricycles, jeepneys and cars are out on the streets of several places – towns and provinces all over. Even Boracay had their own pink morning.

I hope we could sustain this until the coming election in May. I’ve wished to upload photos but I am watching my free allowed spaces and photos eat a lot. I think next caravan is planned come November. The organizers said at least 10,000 vehicles in 50 towns and provinces participated.

I’ve finally found someone that I could order food from this Wednesday, a niece of one of my friends who has a restaurant here in our town. Delivery fee is minima. Lovely🍭🎂🍻

Have you ever experienced being in your pajamas at 12 noon because you just woke up? And the sun has not shown its face yet, it is so dark.

I’ve been distracted by the news of VP Leni last night on Facebook. I was supposed to finish reading but I kept going back to FB. She was in Mindanao yesterday (turf of duterte) particularly in Cagayan de Oro with some volunteer nurses and doctors for her VACCINE EXPRESS project. Then she went to Bukidnoon to visit those farmers she helped when she was not yet in the political scene. Considering the lowest budget allotted to the Office of the Vice-President, volunteers and donors are donating non-stop. She has focused on the Covid-19 since last year – free rides to frontliners, accommodations, medical kits, PPEs, face masks etc. She is always the first to extend help to flood victims.

Yesterday was a sea of pink again with those caravans in several towns and provinces in support of Leni. There was this very touching scene of father and daughter biking with their bikes full of pink ribbons. How lovely, they were on the road too. In Cagayan de Oro, she met Mayor Moreno who came out in the open to support her. Mayor Moreno was a former unibanker where I used to work. He was the Vice-President and Legal Counsel of BPI Capital Corp., a subsidiary of Bank of the Phillipine Islands.

Praying hard for the win. If we’ll have an honest election, she will win.

I’ll always remember this ‘the last man standing is a woman”.

Now, back to reading.

Eight more deliveries from Lazada and I’m done. Then I could put up our Christmas tree by November. I am excited because I have a new tree and new Christmas decor. I ordered this from Lazada and it arrived today, a low glycemic box of coco sugar with 50 small packets in one box. It arrived together with a thermos pot.

Organic Coco Sugar

Have I told you that I had my flu vaccine last Tuesday? It is free for senior citizens from our local government. I had my pneumonia vaccine back in December 2019. Next would be in 2024.

I set aside reading for a while because I am busy with memes campaigning for Leni online…haha🙂

This election is crucial to us for peace in our country. There are so many people suffering at the moment, many have lost their jobs. Covid-19 is not properly addressed.

Six to go. Yes, there are six of them running for the 2022 election for presidency, Ping Lacson, Leni Robredo, Manny Pacquiao, Bongbong Marcos, Isko Moreno, Bato dela Rosa.

Pardon if my latest blogs are all about our political situation. 2022 election is so critical, either we gain democracy by voting the right leader or we stay here while the boat is sinking. The only viable candidate among the six is VP LENI ROBREDO.

The way I understand it, the vice-president is a spare tire but during the last five years and inspite of a very minimal budget given to the Office of the Vice-President, VP Leni is focused on Covid-19, volcanic eruption, helping calamity areas that are flooded, helping those people who can’t even buy sustenance for daily living. She is always the first to respond. She is visited by the foreign dignitaries instead of their president duterte.

Bongbong Marcos is still tainted with the wealth amassed by the elder Marcos during his reign. We are still paying the billions of the ill-gotten wealth till now. Pacquiao, he might be so popular in boxing but is always an absentee senator. Useless, if the rest are qualified, he didn’t even finish high school. The rest are duterte enablers. Bato is a senator who won because of the 7-hour glitch during the 2019 election. His filing of his certificate of candidacy for president was not well planned. He was pushed by his party mates and most Filipinos’ conjecture is he is willing to have his name substituted by duterte’s daughter before November 15. I wonder why Comelec allows this. They have done it before back in 2016 when a certificate of one vying for mayor was substituted by duterte’s name. Isko Moreno, a former actor who is now mayor of Manila is so ambitious. He is a duterty enabler. In Tagalog, we call him maangas at mayabang. So proud of himself and so sure that he will be the next president.

The sea of pink as I have said before is now a movement, alive and kicking. If it is a clean and honest election come 2022, VP Leni will win.

I seldom write political posts nowadays because I feel digusted with the present administration with their president throwing everything except the kitchen towel to those he thinks are his enemy including the Senate lately.

We will be having our presidential election come May next year. And these politicians were busy declaring their candidacy the last few days except for VP LENI ROBREDO who declared her desire to run early this morning.

I’ve waited with bated breath along with people who after more than five years have given up on the present administration. At around 11am after a short inspiring speech, she declared that she is running for the presidency. There is still hope for us afterall.

She chose a pink ribbon, the color of hope, the color which says Laban Leni. Praying we will win and she will win. Pink is the color of the day.

I do remember what she said more than five years ago when she won the vice-presidency. THE LAST MAN STANDING IS A WOMAN.
