DLSU-D Presidential Forum

February 6, 2009

Photos were taken Yesterday at De La Salle University - Dasmariñas, Dasmariñas, Cavite, My Beloved Alma Mater. Featuring Presidentiables Former National Defense Secretary Gilberto "Gibo" Teodoro and Senator Richard "Dick" Gordon. Out of all the 8 Candidates, only the two of them were brave enough and allotted their time to meet us LaSallians.

Gibo Teodoroarrived first, the entourage was wearing all green including the Whole Local Government of
Dasmariñas, Congressman Pidi Barzaga and her wife Mayor Jenny Barzaga, plus their Whole Sangguniang Bayan. Then his time started. He is a great speaker, straight to the point and very professional but confident in his manner. After his Hour, He left with his Entourage with the crowd cheering and applauding, and somestudents had their photos taken with him until he got out of Ugnayang La Salle(Our Gymnasium).

But the crowd went wilder when a shorter guy came inside the ULS, it was Senator Dick Gordon. It was quite a while when he arrived in front and
he was very enthusiatic climbing the stage and unlike Gibo, he was more laid back and very very comfortable talking us all. Every statement he gives, the crowd roars with applause and laughter. And after his whole time, students were running up the stage (Including Yours Truly) to shake his hand and take pictures with him. I was very very lucky to have my picture with him! I look upon him even when he was still the Department of Tourism Secretary from 2001 until being a Senator from 2004 until the Present.

The whole LaSallian Community of Dasmariñas, salutes the two candidates for accepting our invitation. I also want to personally thank Brother Gus, our University President and all the organizers for bringing us, registered voters to people to whom we shall give our vote. Ill leave you with a quote from Bro. Gus. It goes something like this: "DLSU-D does not endorse any Candidate, You have your own mind to choose your own. But please remember, never not give your vote to a Candidate because he/she has a poor chance of winning. If you believe in him/her, then they deserve your vote."

Glad you got the shot in, especially if it was a full house.

I am now going to shut up before I say anything about our presidential candidates. I might get sued.

I am happy for everyone involved. And the photo is very nice. We gor buried in snow. About 12 - 14 inches fell but the wind blew it into drifts. Lots of people shoveling out their driveways so they can get their cars out if they have to go to work or to a doctor.

Bakit dalawa lang ang dumating? Ilan nga ba ang tatakbo sa pagkapresidente? Pasensya na at hindi ako masyadong interesado sa kanilang plataporma. Hayyyy...kelan kaya magbabago ang sistema ng pulitika sa atin.

Am going to shut up, hirap na baka bumaha ng sentimiento ang blog mo hahahaha.

Steven (Cavite DP) said...

Misalyn - Hello po Misalyn! Dalawa lang po ang tumanggap ng Invitation eh :( 8 po ang tatakbo malalakas po sina Villar at Aquino.

Wala din po me interest sa politika eh pero sa kalagayan ng bansa natin sa ngayun, hindi ko po kayang hindi makibahagi sa pagpili ng taong makakapagpabago ng ating gobyerno eh :) Kaya nainspire ako to be active this election kasi kailangan ng bumangon ng Pilipinas! I'm just so proud of our People and all we need now is the right leader that will encourage each and everyone of us to stand up for ourselves and not just wait for the leaders to stand up for us!


Wow nagspeech? jejeje Salamat pos a comment and God Bless :D
