RETROSPECT: TRAILING THE LENISTERIA

I would rather have a government run like hell by Filipinos, than a government run like hell by social media.

May 7, 2022. My brother offered me a a pair of carpet slippers as I stepped in to his hotel room the night Leni Robredo’s Miting de Avance was in full swing down below along Ayala Avenue.

He must have spotted how dusty-as-a-desert my pair of Saucony is for the Ascott’s swanky flooring.

These shoes have been to many Leni Robredo presidential campaign grounds. Wet. Dry. And in between.

Proclamation. Pocket Rally. Grand Rally. Miting de Avance.

I have never been to such party. I wish the dance would never end.

I’m raising a glass as well to my fellow stringers at PonD News Asia for their own successful coverage of the political event, from “battlefields” across the nation. How’s your pair?

Bottoms up mga kasama!
