Maraming, maraming salamat Bokal Kring sa inyong napakagandang papakilala, magpasalamat sa ating President/Mayor Joseph Estrada sa kanyang magagandang salita. Nagpapasalamat tayo sa aking Tito Johnny na nakarating dito sa ating pagtitipon ngayong araw na ito. Of course ang ating minamahal, si Congresswoman Imelda, na nandito rin na kasama tayong lahat, at lahat ng nakarating sa araw na ito sa ating pagtitipon-tipon na ito, maraming maraming salamat sa inyong pagdating, magandang hapon po sa inyong lahat.
Marami ang nagtatanong bakit daw hindi idinaos ang okasyong ito sa Ilocos o sa Leyte o di kaya’y sa Bulacan kung saan sinilang ang aking lola.
Bakit nga ba sa Heneral Luna St. sa Intramuros, Manila? Aaminin ko po sa inyo, nadala po ako ng pelikulang Heneral Luna matapos ko itong mapanood. Naalala ko ang ating mga dakilang bayani noong sila ay nakikipaglaban sa mga banyagang Kastila para sa ating kalayaan. Read More…

With 5 million votes from “Solid North,” Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has a distinct advantage over all his opponents in the vice presidential race, Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile said on Wednesday.
In an interview, Enrile said all the Bicolano VP bets are formidable opponents but since there is only one Ilocano candidate, that would be the advantage of Marcos.
“There is an Ilocano candidate and the culture of the people of the North is when an Ilocano runs for a high public office, if he’s all alone, you can be sure that all the votes of the Ilocanos will gravitate to him. That’s the advantage of Sen. Marcos, a very distinct advantage. Hahabulin nila yung boto ng mga Ilocano,” Enrile said. Read More…

Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Wednesday said he opted to run for vice president next year because he believes this is not the right time for him to run for President.
“As we have always said, the presidency is a question of destiny. We do what we can to gain some advantage, but destiny will tell you what to do,” Marcos told a forum in Quezon City.
“I would like to continue to be in the public service, and I think I can do a great deal as a vice president,” he said.
Marcos, who has been in the public service for 25 years and whose term in the Senate ends on June 30, 2016, said the current administration does not support his family. Read More…
Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. announced on Monday (October 5) that he run for the vice presidency in the 2016 elections.
“I have decided to run for Vice President in the May 2016 elections,” Marcos said in a statement posted on his website.
The senator first entered politics when he was elected vice governor of Ilocos Norte in 1981 at the age of 23. He then became the governor of the province, serving 1983 to 1986.
This was cut short by the 1986 EDSA Revolution. Several years after his family went into exile in the United States, Marcos returned to the Philippines.
He ran as Ilocos Norte second district representative in 1992 and won a three-year term. Read More…
Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has declared his intent to seek the vice presidency, just hours after it was announced that talk of a Binay-Marcos tandem had formally ended.
“I have decided to run for vice president in the May 2016 elections,” Marcos said in a press statement, a day after former First Lady Imelda Marcos reportedly told her son to run for president.
Marcos Jr., however, did not say whom he planned to run with, except to say that should Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte seek the presidency, he will support him. Read More…
