Ang COVID virus is still around and the reason why is there is less ratio and proportion between other countries mababa talaga tayo. You should know that. And huwag ho sana kayong maniwala diyan sa mga dilawan, opposition, na hampas dito, hampas doon, kung anong pinagsasabi.
For as long as the virus lives in this planet, we are put in real danger. Kaya ho kayo naman kung maniwala kayo, you get to be despondent or — well, ano sa buhay put more stress. Huwag ho kayong maniwala dito lang.
Kami dito lahat Senator Go, Secretary Galvez, Secretary Roque, Secretary Lorenzana, Secretary Año, we are not here, we did not join government to lie. We do not have any obligation at all to lie.
Bakit kami magsinungaling na hindi namin trabaho ‘yan at hindi naman kami pumasok sa trabaho para ‘yan lang magsinungaling? Maski Grade 1, Grade 2 alam na namin kung ano ang pagmamahal sa bayan.
So I hope that everybody would listen to reason. Makinig kayo sa rason. Huwag ‘yang basta na lang maniwala ka na ganito, ganito.
Pero ‘yung mga alam mo na ‘yung mga — ‘yung kinakausap ko lang ‘yung ka-level ko, ‘yung nakakaintindi ng rason and who would listen to us and do the things that we want them to do, ‘yan ang medyo malibre.

Hindi pa nga eh. Eh nagkamali ako wala pa. Now they are asking for parang reservation fee. Wala pa sila. Sabi nila ‘pag naimbento na ito o natapos na namin ‘yung trials — but anyway it’s really — they are really on the advanced stage of the clinical trials.
Pero kung sabihin mo na sige wala pa ‘yung vaccine, there is nothing with finality, and you want us to make a reservation by depositing money, you must be crazy. Hindi ako mag…
Bakit ako magbili ng ganung style? Because the Procurement Law of the Philippines, this country, does not allow you to buy something which is non-existence or to be produced as yet.
It’s a very exacting law and you must always reckon with, you know, prosecution and going to jail. At bakit ka naman…? So iyan ang… Bakit ka naman magbayad na wala diyan? Now talagang…
If the companies are here or representatives, mag-uwi na kayo sa inyo. ‘Pag hindi, sipain ko kayo kung makita ko kayo diyan sa ano. If I happened to have dinner outside and see you somewhere in the hotels, I’ll kick your ass. Babastusin ko kayo.
