team aguinaldo

It was really a surprise for me when I learned that Dad is running again. I wasn't consulted nor informed before he filed for his candidacy. Maybe because he knows that I will say no. For me, the more than 2 decades he served our barangay as captain is more than enough public service. But then again, the call for service is much stronger for him that he can't say no to those asking him to run. I think it was 2 days before the deadline that he finally decided to run. He settled for the Kagawad position since he didn't have enough time to form his lineup. Even his former alliances were caught by surprise that they already said yes to another party. So in the end my Dad ran as an independent candidate.

I admit that I wasn't able to join him during his campaigns because of work. So when I was told that we will still have our signature motorcade, I made sure that I'd be there. Indeed, I was there....with these:

The motorcade was a success. We were really surprised by the number of people who joined us. Who believed in my Dad and his plans for our barangay, that is to get back the school that he dreamed our barangay to have. Sadly, with the incumbent's lack of plans, we lost the school that my Dad worked hard for.

Sadly come election day, the number of people who attended the motorcade didn't really translate into votes. Dad ended up #9 trailing by a little over 100 voters from #7. It was really unfortunate that voters chose not to give my Dad a chance to fulfill his legacy. He wasn't given the chance to get the school back. Hope they made the right choice...

REALIZATION #1: Sad that there's animosity with old alliances. Dunno what's the issue but even my sister felt it. Just awkward...
REALIZATION #2: no matter how good your track record is, Iglesia Ni Cristo wont support you if you're running independent. Double sad...
REALIZATION #3: No matter how good I do a poker face, seeing those who betrayed my Dad/Nanay b4 gets me angrier as if it was just yesterday!

mangan na kita

What I missed about Stat was our lunchouts. When we were still at Main, we do lunchouts almost every week. Not to mention the bondings and open forums done once a month. These somehow made us bonded not only with work but how we relate with each other. I really miss that. So I'm starting this lunchouts every payday to relive the fire of the bond. Hope it's not too late...
