In four months we all get to go out, vote and get ourselves a leader we all deserve. This post isn't about who you should vote for. It isn't even about who is best for the job. We all have our own thoughts, our own ideas and I love that I can sit down and have a laugh with someone who isn't going to vote for the same guy I'm rooting for. Its a free country after all. Read: Respect, Respect.
Props to MacDaddy. Up until a month ago, he had never even met the presidential candidate. He had heard him months before, scrutinized his take on many issues and knew he found "the one". He was certain he had to get up and do something. With a lot of MacDaddy's sweat (fortunately no blood or tears ) and together with an equally young and persevering bunch, thousands were up at the crack of dawn last Saturday to stage a fun run to show their support. I wish I was there to see it. I would have been beaming with pride, for sure.

Because no Filipino event is complete without its own share of characters.

Which is why I am grateful the Mak-Tatos have the chance to witness first hand what it means to go out and go after something you truly believe in. Never mind if it goes against the grain. Never mind that it isn't a very popular choice. And never mind that after all of MacDaddy's hard work Tato declares "I want my Mama to be the President of the country. The President of Manila!"
