It's almost election day and I haven't been able to at least fill one of the seats in the Senate. I haven't been able to decide who I'm going to vote for because honestly I don't know their qualifications which is something that I base my vote with. An couple of days ago, I was fortunate enough to have been able to track Richard Yap who plays Sir Chief/ Papa Chen on a press conference. I wondered why initially but I guess with the things that some of the people wearing there it was a Liberal Party gathering. I sat down with my blogger friends and the guy across me looked very familiar. It was Senator Ramon "Jun" Magsaysay Jr. and he was talking to some of my friends over coffee.
The last time I saw Sir Jun was in person was way back in college. It was my graduation and he was the guest speaker. I'm a Computer Engineer and a thinker, he's an Engineer too and we all know he's been quite a good Senator in the past. He's coming back and if my hunch is right he's getting voted by mostly the educated and thinking class. In a world where qualifications matter, that's probably what he's got and what he has to offer.
It was my first time seeing Ogie Diaz too. This time however he wasn't cracking jokes. He was serious and taking it to the next level. He was introducing the Senator and I couldn't agree more about what he had to say about him. A proven track record, no anomalies, no unscrupulous people who are associated with him, and he's done a good job in the past. That's Senator Jun Magsaysay for him.
Then he introduced good looking Richard Yap aka Papa Chen aka Sir Chief.
Don't worry, I said that too my self. I mean why in the world would someone like Sir Chief get involved in politics? Why would he endorse a politician of all people? Well for starters and for the public to know, Sir Chief made it known that he wasn't paid to do this. This is pro bono. Sir Jun Magsaysay says; Richard Yap is like a nephew to him and he has called him hijo for what its worth.
Sir Chief believes in Senator Jun. He's also glad that he's into caring for kids which is one of his passions. For some of you that don't know, Richard Yap has done charity work in his spare time. If someone believes in the charities that he also does, then that for him is the perfect person to vote for. It's not a secret now and he believes in a good man like Senator Jun Magsaysay.
People should realize how important this election is for the future of our children. Each time you get someone on the Senate seat wrongly, the country suffers and with that... so does the hopes and dreams of millions of Filipinos. I think I made my mind who's going on top of my list in this election after seeing what he wants to do for the country. It's quite simple actually but its got so many things involved in it. The responsibility of getting your vote counted starts on the election day itself. Without it, I don't think you would have the right to complain about public service. You have the chance to change the country's future on just exercising your right this Monday. Make sure you choose the right guy. It'll be all worth it! If Sir Chief believes in Sir Jun Magsaysay, who in the right mind say that you shouldn't too!
