Warning. This post is even more photo-loaded than the usual. And may be a bit boring coz it focuses on Kap, not ME, lels! And it’s mostly in Filipino –masa tayo today! :P YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Kap is SUCH a busybody. Both the figurative & literal meaning. Paki-alamerong mahilig magbisi-bisihan! :P So when our dear kuya MIKE TENSUAN invited him to run as his Kagawad for TEAM ALAGA, YES agad si Kap!
Go for sports, Lim for __, Suntay for health, Calugcug for environment, Mendoza for the Youth, Mendoza for the Senior Citizens, & Guerrero for Women’s rights.
This is actually his 2nd time to run as Kagawad for our barangay. The first time was back in 2007 where he also ran with kuya Mike, both of them as councilors. He came very close to winning -40 points short. He placed #8. Unfortunately, 7 was the cut-off line. Kuya Mike was #1.
I thought I’d have him all to myself again after his month-long Petron stint, but boy was I wrong. He delved deeply into the campaign as soon as he could. Parang mas hindi ko pa yata siya nakikita now, hmp! :P So I really had to squeeze myself into his sorties just so I could be with him. #dakilangAlalay
At the certificate of registration. Again, si Kap lang ang may alalay #angclingyko . I just said.. photographer ako & went on ahead into the van! :P
At the drawing of lots for the billboard placement. (Oh yes, importante sa kanila ang tamang placement! Ayan oh, nag heads or tails pa talaga sila for the locashen, locashen, locashen!)
Hala pati na si Ian.. ;P
At The Candidates Forum at the Ayala Alabang Country Club..
At the motorcade..
On to the Meeting de Avance that same day..
And finally at the Elections..
Sadly, Kap didn’t make it to the magic 7. Only 1 from Team Alaga made it, and we are just so very proud of Dr. Lester Suntay, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, who came out as the #1 Kagawad. m/ He is so deserving of his position. We have known him for 20 years, he is the ninong to our babyson, and we can vouch that he has a pure & good heart, willing to serve. Even before his foray into politics, he has already been doing mission work for the underprivileged. Our barangay is lucky to have him as an official.

Special thanks to our kids who have been so patient with their dad’s busy schedule, sometimes not getting to see him at all for a whole day. They were so sweet & thoughtful for making their dad feel 10 feet tall after his loss in the election..
We love you Honey, and in our eyes, you will always be a winner & our HERO! <3
