Q. WHAT’S REPENTANCE?

A. REPENTANCE IS THE KEY TO OUR OWN ETERNAL SALVATION. THE MESSAGE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST IS, “REPENT YE: FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.” (MATTHEW 3:2). Email: jayfeliciano2@yahoo.com

OUR political atmosphere in La Bella, as always, reaches its feverish pitch even in its infant stage. That’s the typical observation of our political aficionados here in mi ciudad—no longer for so long the “City of Flowers,” for this branding has already been usurped by other cities in the country, like Baguio, if I’m not mistaken, but “Asia’s Latin City” that makes not a few here cringe, instead.

Dist. 1 Cong. Celso Lobregat’s new signature catchphrase (in chabacano), “Quiere ba ustedes bira otrabes el alegria na diaton ciudad?” or something similar to this, is supposedly gaining a lot of following these days, giving the strong notion amongst our potential voters that he’s hell-bent to run for Mayor by May 2019 local/ senatorial elections.

Last December, Pen-cing attended Cong. Celso’s X’mas party he threw for the media here that was held in Grand Astoria on Sucabon Rd. downtown this city. Same catchword was reechoed by him and his diehards tagging along with him. And, many, they said, felt like in their cloud 9that particular yuletide night that Cong. Celso traditionally tendered for the local media practitioners. They were amused by Cong. Celso’s supposed first salvo that looked like he torpedoed it direct at City Hall’s main occupant, none other than her former protégé lady Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar. In same manner, Cong. Celso who was himself a longtime occupant of City Hall’s main throne(2004-2013), accordingly resonates same burgeoning proverbial line in several occasions whenever invited by our local folks, be them in districts1 or 2.

The latest of which, according to my snooping moles, came last Sunday (May13) in the east-coast. “Yes, bossing, it was during the Manicahan fiesta that afternoon, cuando di-aton Congresista Celso Lobregat repeated his new favorite saying in our own lingo, “Quiere ba ustedes bira otrabes el alegria na diaton ciudad?”That  seemed to delight the crowd. But others appeared they were taken aback.” C Bogs, yaman ingles, ingles pa gayot, ta abisa.

“Bosing, dol duele lla cun Cong. Celso cay tiene lla un miembro dao del banda, perhaps, honestly, without his knowing, blurted(on the mike) Cong. Lobregat’s same popular chabacano line, seemingly, amalgamated in politics, “Quiere ba ustedes bira alegria otrabes na ciudad? Pues e manda kita bira otrabes cun Cong. Erbie Fabian!”Otro ste c Ador, pega tamen suyu abiso cun bosing.

“No kamo mete cun mi idol, leading se le aura namio survey. Dol dehao ya c Alcalde Beng diaton. C tiene election aura mismo, bota sila dao cun Celso otrabes para Alcalde.”Na pega tamen ste c Nado. Bisto ya gayot suyu bulitin.
