What have I been doing?
I was in Cebu recently and what an itinerary. My friends think I'm there to have fun and all but it's the opposite really. I had to take a leave from work on a Friday to be able to talk to students from the University of The Visayas. We went around the city to meet with the Cebu HQ people. The next day, we woke up at 5am to go to 5 public markets. But since we were ahead of time and the campaign people wanted to utilize our presence, we went beyond the target of 5 and went to 7 public markets.
What do we do at the markets? Well... We shake people's hands and ask them to vote for my Tito Noy :) I usually say Noynoy-Mar po tayo ah? Aquino-Roxas po sa Mayo. Carcar was awesome because the people there had the biggest smiles! I even got balat ng lechon for free! The lady selling the lechon cut me this huge piece and handed it. I got it but I had to split it with my brother. It was real good but man... the oil!!! Woooo!!! Sarap magsoftdrink after. (Too bad for me, I gave up softdrinks for lent) So anyway, I also rode a tricycle or try-sikol in bisaya. :)
The distance we had to travel was really far. We reached Argao and it was around 90 minutes away from Mactan. That's what a campaign is...
That afternoon, we went to University of Cebu. It was the main campus and it was amazing. The students were so full of life! It was where I gave my longest speech to date. Hahaha. How do I give speeches? I usually have an outline in my head and I just go extemporaneous. People like that better right?
That night, I crashed in bed. I had to wake up at 6am for a presscon. It was the first press conference me, Jonty, and Miguel had. Sun Star of Cebu were the ones who came and asked the questions. I appreciated the fact that they didn't have any bias with the questions. They were all very respectful and we did our best answering what they asked.
We left Cebu lunch time and was back in Manila by 2pm.
It's a hard life during the campaign season. But it's all for love I guess. :) Anyway, that's it for now. I leave you all with some images from my Cebu trip. :)
