What did Otso Diretso 2019 slate lack?

I’ve been a staunch follower of President Duterte and VP Leni Robredo and I have to say this because witnessing what they did during their campaigns last 2016 gave me a foundation and background to logically criticize political strategies of an aspiring politician/public servant (at least).

It surprised a lot how the Otso Diretso slate are leading the university mock elections and Twitter voting polls and surveys yet none of the eight aspiring candidates made it to the magic twelve of the official election. Cheat? Manipulated? I don’t think so.

Groundworks. I think this is a heavy one. It seems to be that the Otso Diretso became quite confident and comfortable when they started to lead the university mock elections and surveys plus the Twitter hashtags and online polls/surveys but here’s the thing, who are they following? Who are the people on their friend list sharing those surveys favoring them? They are in their echo chamber, I should say. The elections are nationwide not just on their yellow leaning or opposition leaning or whatsoever audience.

There are farmers, social workers, adults, who doesn’t have social media like Twitter or Facebook. There are illiterates who can’t read even if you show them a graphic poster of the candidate and their credentials. How will you convince them to vote you if you’ll give less effort just because you see how strong you are on social media? There is life outside the internet and I think the Otso Diretso slate lacked effort in reaching them.

Reach out to them. Touch their hearts. Let them remember you. Be the light to their hopes. Give them the reason to vote for you.

I was expecting them to reach them out as much as VP Leni Robredo did during her 2016 VP campaign but I don’t think this slate did as much as she did because I believe that if they did, they would have shared the same faith as hers during her race. I’m not saying they didn’t exert effort but what I can say is they could’ve done more.

Opposition Image. A good opposition doesn’t just oppose and criticize the flaws negatively. A good opposition knows when to oppose and when to support.

That’s the opposition that we need.

If you’ll just keep on opposing everything the administration serves then that’s travesty — you’re a whiner. An opposition opposes bad policies but one should know when to support too and trigger the people to appreciate the good policies, programs and projects of the government because that is progressive.

Can you imagine being a normal apolitical citizen and all you’ll ever hear is the bad works and flaws of the government? If you are that citizen, will you still trust the government? No. You’ll be conditioned to think that government is a total trash and there’s no more hope. We don’t want that. We don’t want our own people to loathe us, we need them to trust and believe us. We’re a team.

Moving to my point, I watched the debates and listened to the (majority not all) statements of the Otso Diretso slate and I was honestly disappointed with their responses when they were asked if they like any of the policies implemented during this administration. Some said none, some only mentioned one. Do they lack awareness or they just don’t want to recognize the good policies/programs/projects of this admin or are they trying to pull off that I am pure opposition kinda guy?

Newsflash: Appreciating the good policies doesn’t make you less of a person nor a bad opposition.

Honestly, I think this is one of the thing they went wrong. They failed to convince the non-supporters that they can be a rational opposition because they had that all oppose image. I think, I’ll generalize their supporters as the coalition of their circles, anti-Duterte, anti-Administration and some lefts. That would give quite a number but it’s not enough. I think the election results prove this argument.

All against the President. I think this might be intertwined with the previous one. The Otso Diretso slate went too far in showing how they are opposing the president — yes, I’ll say ‘just’ the president because Leni Robredo is endorsing them and she is the vice president of the current admin so I don’t think it’s accurate to say that this opposition slate is opposing the current admin. You know what I mean?

Yet then, the previous surveys about approval rating of President Duterte still favors him so this actually backfires to the Otso Diretso slate. Yes, it may be just a small group and just a survey but man, this is politics, you gotta consider that.

As I’ve said earlier, they could’ve shown a better opposition face by showing how they oppose and how they support. I’d like to mention some critics of the President and the admin who also knows how to support and appreciate: JV Ejercito, Sonny Angara, Grace Poe (I’m not endorsing them or what but they are just the names I remember as of the moment.) With such tactic, they could have convinced more people to vote for them, they could have made some people consider them but no, they kept that staunchly opposing image, bad idea, and what’s a more bad idea is they highlighted their opposition against Duterte. First of all, he’s not on the ballot list to be a good bullseye to target, secondly, objectively speaking, Duterte is still strong up until today, a man hard to topple and because they keep using him to strengthen their opposition face, it backfired. Yepp, that’s it.

Pakulo. Otso Diretso slate members may be packed with academic and professional achievements, public service and legal service backgrounds but then in politics, it’s not enough to be just bright, you also have to be wise (madiskarte) and one should have this so called “maraming pakulo” that will help them campaign themselves OUTSIDE their echo chamber or be viral to reach those registered who aren’t very political or aware.

Look at that budots of Bong Revilla. That budots pakulo did well, right? He made it to the top twelve so don’t argue. (P.S: not a supporter of him). Before you bully me for saying that, let me just tell you that I am not here to bash or drag the Otso Diretso slate but I am here to point out what they lacked (in my opinion), if you don’t agree then you either continue reading or get the hell out.

Unity Aura. Another one worth mentioning. Otso Diretso is a group of opposition, let me say that again, a group with an objective of being an effective voice of opposition but how can they actually convince they can be a solid group to be the voice of opposition if it seems to be a struggle for them to make all their members attend the events. I don’t want to further know the reasons why but just look at how Mar Roxas is absent on most Otso Diretso early ground campaigns. We need a united opposition if that’s what they are promising to offer us. Start small by showing us how each of them are willing to be present in every campaign event.

I personally admire most of the Otso Diretso candidates with their jam packed academic achievements and accomplishments, political, legal and professional works and I wish them luck in case they plan to run again.

What about you? What are your thoughts?

Trip to Masasa Beach Tingloy, Batangas

IT’S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES!

A place without wifi signal and cellular signal, a place where you’re left only with clear beaches and cheap houses for rent.

I won’t say that Masasa Beach is as stable and marvelous as the newly renovated Boracay or other established beaches in the Philippines but one thing I liked about this beach is it’s so raw. It’s like a newly discovered beach that hasn’t been overly used or populated by visitors. It’s raw, it’s hidden, it’s a sanctuary.

From Anilao port, you have to ride a boat to Masasa Beach for about P60 if I remember correctly, there is NO other way than to ride a boat as the beach is in an island about 30-45 minutes away from the port.

Upon arriving in Masasa, there will be a lot of people welcoming you and offering your cheap house rentals for you to stay in during your vacation and I must say, they’re SUPER CHEAP.

We rented a house having P300/person per night. The house owners were also there to assist us buying coals if we wanted to grill, cooking rice for us as we rest ourselves from the long trip, cooking and grilling foods for us, entertaining us. They also accompany us with free tricycle rides whenever we go down to the beach which is about 5 mins away from the inn. They also served as our tour guide and photographer during our whole stay. They just made us feel at home.

The house was big enough to accommodate all of us (10 persons). It has three bedrooms, comfort rooms and karaoke.

Let’s now talk about the beach. We went snorkeling and Pawikan searching. We rented two boats for P600 each with a capacity of 5 persons per boat plus the tour guide.

The boat drove us to three islands and stopped somewhere in between the beach so we can snorkel down and see the huge Pawikans swimming down about 30 feet below the surface of the water. We also fed fish with some bread after the Pawikan search. It was indeed mesmerizing.

Sorry I wasn’t able to take photos of it, I was too busy appreciating the beauty of the animals in their habitat and the wonders of nature and of course, the Philippines.

We also visited the lagoon with such sky blue waters and the cave with two entrance which is quite terrifying because the waves suddenly raged when we entered the cave as if it doesn’t want us to leave. Yikes.

The whole place really didn’t have much cellular signal and if you happen to get some, it’s not even enough to send a message. We had some social media and onlien detox during this getaway. Me and my friend purely bonded because we didn’t have much reasons to hold our phones and be distracted — which is cool.

This vacation felt like a get away from all our stresses and problems in life. Masasa Beach is like another world to us, it gave us sanity and peace of mind. The views gave us solace and the nature didn’t fail to impress us.

Roughly computing my budget for this trip back and forth from Manila is about P1,800 including all the foods, meat and other pasalubong I bought. Not bad for a perfect getaway.

When President Duterte and VP Leni talk about each other

As much as I think VP Leni feels so liberated talking about President Duterte on her interviews, talks and media engagements, President Duterte feels the opposite. Not that he feel oppressed or he doesn’t enjoy talking about her but it’s more of that he doesn’t feel very comfortable talking about her maybe because he is afraid that his words and opinions about her might get misinterpreted — by her or the people — just like what happened in Tacloban last November 2016.

When President Duterte talks about VP Leni

President Duterte is not so good in expressing his thoughts straight to the point, I can say that even if I am a staunch supporter of him, it’s kind of like his weakness. Now there was a time he spoke about VP Leni in front of the public and everyone misinterpreted his whole thought from the real idea that he wants to convey — wanting to protect her from the eyes of the others — to the whole idea that he was ogling at her legs and perverting around.

Ever since that instance, I felt like he changed. He started to feel insecure talking about her in public.

Whenever he is composed and the media asks him about her, he strives so hard to pick the right words. I remember observing his gesture of snapping as he try to think of the most precise and accurate word to describe VP Leni and her works. Other than that, when he also describes her (physically and intellectually) as follows:

1. Beautiful – yes, he uses this term to describe her all the time and he never described her as just a pretty or cute or hot or alluring — she is purely beautiful to him. Pay attention to that choice of word.

The struggles of Dubredo Army • Duterte-Robredo on Leni Robredo’s side

People usually think Dubredo Army • Duterte-Robredo is just a typical support group of President Duterte and VP Leni Robredo but this core group is more than just a group of people who supports two same people. After all that we’ve been through, this core group is now like a family that you can’t just brainwash or wreck apart.

We started from zero, no connections to President Duterte or VP Leni Robredo but we decided to work on reaching out to VP Leni first. Most of the people today think it was so easy for us to reach VP Leni but God knows how much we struggled as we paved our way to her. We came across her millennial supporters who didn’t welcome us warmly because we support President Duterte.

Specifically, we came face to face with the Mar-Leni supporters, the Leni-only supporters who criticized our core group, told us we wouldn’t last long and we would part ways after 2016 because Duterte and Leni’s tandem isn’t just possible at all. Most of them told us that VP Leni wouldn’t like our group at all because she doesn’t like Duterte and that time, I didn’t know who Leni Robredo was in depth so I had nothing to hold on to than my own mind telling me that I should keep paving our way to her so that I can determine with my own eyes and ears if Leni Robredo would actually support this Duterte-Robredo support group. I didn’t buy any of their comments and discouraging words, the only thing I believed in is that Leni Robredo is a good person and one day, if she meets this group, she’ll appreciate Dubredo Army.

Being the founder and leader of this group who’s very new to the world of politics and governance, I felt so degraded and hopeless being surrounded by people who discouraged us to push through. I never talked to Leni, I wasn’t aware of her person in depth and it wasn’t easy to make myself hold on to the fact that she will ever notice us, I mean, as we made our way to her, we met so many people supporting her and working for her and about 90% of them doesn’t like the man (Duterte) we support pero hindi ako sumuko, pinilit kong isipin na ‘no, her people doesn’t define her. Just because ayaw ng karamihan ng mga taong nakapaligid sakanya kay Duterte eh ibig sabihin non ayaw rin niya kay Duterte. She has her own mind, she is her own person.’

But man, that was the only thing I was holding on to during those times.

Scheduling a meeting VP Leni isn’t as easy as most of the people think. We had to talk to several people to walk us into her office for a courtesy call or meet/greet with supporters and for the record, those people we had to talk to are the ones who had their social media accounts filled with criticisms against Duterte. We had to stay professional and casual with them despite that, just imagine that.

We joined this ‘social media group’ of someone who once worked at her office (not dropping names) together with the other millennial Leni supporters who made us their utusan. This person asked us to make graphic artworks, directed us to post things on our social media accounts, asked us to repost things about Leni, some of the Dubredos felt like we’re working on making their work easier. Of course, we thought he/she is our only way to Leni so we did what he/she wanted us to do. We spent time to edit graphic artworks but instead of being appreciated, we only heard criticisms and judgments from him/her and the other members of the group.

Hindi maganda yung pagkaka-edit nung graphics.

Ang liit ng text.

We spent hours editing but our works were never posted, our edits were never used, sometimes they would just ignore the graphics we edited for hours — they just wasted our time, didn’t even thank us for trying.

As a part of the social media group, we also expressed our suggestions and ideas to help promoting VP Leni’s works and advocacies but then these people never listened because Dubredo kami eh. There are times that we just happily share new articles about President Duterte and VP Leni just because we are pleased to see them all fine but all we get from these people are scolds.

Bawal ang Dubredo dito.

Luh. Please don’t mention Duterte.

About Leni lang ang pwede dito.

From the very start, they already assumed that VP Leni Robredo would never appreciate us so they never valued us as her supporters. Sabit lang kami sa other Leni supporters noon.

But then, sino nga ba ang Dubredo Army • Duterte-Robredo supporters para i-please or pakinggan nila ‘di ba? Syempre kung gusto nila magpalakas kay VP Leni doon sila didikit sa mga Leni supporters kase uncertain rin naman nga sila kung magugustuhan ba talaga ni Leni yung Dubredo Army. Baka mamaya kapag lumapit lapit sila saaming Duterte-Robredo, imbis na lumakas sila kay Leni, humina pa sila.

So we, Duterte-Robredo supporters had to get along with it. Nobody liked us, nobody believed in us, nobody appreciated our mission. We also had doubts if Leni would appreciate us but during our early days, we just wanted her to know that there are people who supports her and the president, yun lang, masaya na kami.

Hindi namin hinangad na maging bida sa office ni Leni, we never asked to be treated special. We didn’t want to meet Leni Robredo to earn some bragging rights or to just earn a connection. We just wanted to empower the idea that it is better to support the president and the vice president instead of pitting them against each other. But since we’re so new to this political supporting world, the people who had much knowledge played us and then used us. I’m not taking it back, I’m not holding my words back, pinagtripan kami and then ginawang utusan para mas mapadali ang trabaho nila.

I told some of our members before that it’s okay, let’s be understanding, during that time some of the Dubredo Army members started complaining because they felt like a slave on that group — most of us are professionals pero anong ginawa nitong mga millennial intern saamin? Ginawang taga-edit, taga-post and then made us a laughingstock because sumusunod lang kami. I told the DuBredos that one day they’ll appreciate us especially if we meet VP Leni already. Tiis tiis lang.

10 Reasons why I believe President Duterte is for Leni Robredo

I repeat again, I am both pro-Duterte and pro-Robredo. Previously, I wrote a blog post about the five reasons why I believe VP Leni Robredo is for President Duterte (read here) and I believe this blog post is in relate to that. I don’t wanna sound so bias saying it’s only VP Leni who’s all sincere about unity so I made this.

As you can see, I only wrote five (5) reasons why on my last post, that is because VP Leni is a lady and dapat mas reserved (lol!). Now this, I lay to you ten reasons why I believe that President Duterte likes VP Leni Robredo as a co-government official and most importantly, as a person.

1. Maganda talaga siya. Let’s start with the elections period. Leni Robredo ran with the Liberal Party, the party well-known to be the complete opposite of Digong’s side but not because of it’s policies but its known members and people. Digong is tactless, if he doesn’t like you, he’ll say it, he’ll throw shades on you but during the elections he chose to praise the lady in yellow named, Leni Robredo. (WATCH: Duterte wants ‘beautiful’ Leni Robredo as assistant president)

Duterte blushes over Leni Robredo when the media asked him why he wants her to be his assistant president.

I know a lot have seen this video so I wouldn’t fathom further but I would like to mention the time that Digong was throwing shade at Mar Roxas and then he pulled the brakes and said ‘dinamay pa yung matinong babae’ wherein he is referring to Leni Robredo as the matinong babae. To think, Digong and Leni aren’t close friends that time and it was elections, she is from the other side and she isn’t his running mate. He could’ve easily dragged her with Mar Roxas but he chose to exempt her instead.

Now this is the time for you, reader, to think about it.

2. Diamond ring for Leni Robredo. This instance I’m about to mention is when Digong was asked what position will he be giving to Leni Robredo when she started leading the VP race. Let me just point out that he was ranting before this question was thrown at him so I was expecting a negative statement from him but then guess what he said?

“Ano bang magandang singsing?”

(WATCH: Duterte plans to give Leni a ring)

His dimmed mood turned light when he was asked about Leni and it’s just amusing because he shouldn’t be talking that way about her during elections — politics-wise — because he might deliver supporters to her with that instance, eh hindi naman siya ang running mate niya but he didn’t care.

Also, Digong is a ladies’s man who doesn’t really like associating himself with putting so much effort to win a woman’s heart or affection or have someone to marry him but then aside from this ring statement, he also once dared Leni to marry him.

Shocking right?

Sige, dalaga man siya. Pakasalan niya ako.”

(READ: Digong challenges Leni to marry him)

He once challenged though we all know it’s uttered in jest but jokes are half meant and we all know that this man likes that lady in yellow.

How I wish VP Leni rebutted that dare (also in jest) with something like “Sige, nasaan na ang singsing?” To light up the mood ‘di ba?

Si Honeylet nga di niya niyaya magpakasal pero si Leni niyaya niya. Who’s the real winner here? Hahaha! But on a serious note, kapag cinonsider niya yung kasal with a lady, you know he really likes her. Look at ma’am Elizabeth Zimmerman, Digong proudly says that he loves her and he even married her. Kahit kilalang ladies’ man yang si Digong, alam mo talaga kapag seryoso siya sa babae eh.

3. Lady with a Mona Lisa smile. Digong never described Leni the way he describes most women. We all know the typical adjectives he use to praise women like sexy, hot or delicious but hey, he never used those terms to this lady in yellow. There are so many instances that he described Leni Robredo but it has always been respectful. He said she is very beautiful, kind and very ladylike, she is very reserved lady with a Mona Lisa smile, he once said her beauty is something that hypnotizes him that he finds himself just staring at her every time she speaks — it has always been like that. He never described her in a manner that it sounds disrespectful or something that could be misinterpreted.

If you would think about it, why is she so special? Why is he so careful about her? Why does he talk about her and describe her that way like she’s so special to him? Or maybe she really is?

Transcript: Duterte-Robredo supporters on OKS sa DWBL 1242kHz Radio station

Last April 9, 2018, me and some members of the Dubredo Army • Duterte-Robredo visited the DWBL 1242kHz radio station in Paragon Plaza for an interview with Teddy Pereña.

5 Reasons why I believe that Leni Robredo is for Duterte

Everyone knows I’m a pro-Duterte and a pro-Robredo at the same time. The ones on the right sometimes tell me they doubt that VP Leni is sincere about her support to President Duterte, the ones on the left sometimes tell me it’s only Duterte who likes VP Leni and it is impossible that VP Leni is fond of him so I decided to create this post.

Here are the five things about VP Leni Robredo that proves that she is sincerely supportive of President Duterte at work and personally fond of him behind the eyes of the mainstream. There might be some insiders here but I’ll spill it because I want you all to believe again that our president and our vice president are all for unity and even if a lot tries so hard to pit them against each other, they still have their own mind and decisions. With that said, they both choose to believe and protect each other.

1.Go to VP Leni’s office and you’ll see her Diggy bear seated beside her own self bear.
