No! It’s not that I got my first honoraria this month (Php 2,617.00 or about $62.00) as Brgy. Chairman but I have some things to be honored and thankful for. I’m tickled pink when people I meet smiles and greets me - the pedi cab drivers and street kids who would call me “Vergara, Vergara” or “Madam”. Maybe those kids remembered my names through those campaign materials posted on the streets.
Politicos give special attention to the Chairman like dinner invitations, etc. Well let me take this chance to thank them for the following Christmas gifts:
A cavan of rice from Mayor Lim, Brgy. Bureau and the Liga ng Mga Barangay (Kanino ba talaga galling?);
A box of noodles and ham from Vice Mayor Isko Moreno;
Another box of ham and wine from Chairman Philip Lacuna;
A canvass traveling portfolio from Councilor Ernie and daughter Beth Rivera;
A baton from Chairman Digna Castaneda:
A table alarm clock from Councilor Dennis Lacuna and
Another ham from Congressman Abante plus this one
I love pens!
Time Out! (?)

Well at least I had some time off from barangay hectic duties although I would say not totally off because I can no longer do away with it, hehehe sounds confusing.
I had my diamond peel and enroled in a 10 session package plus last minute shopping for a few gifts for my staff and friends.
BTW, I appreciate my mom-in-laws generous gifts for almost all the families in my Barangay (but I labeled them "from Vergara Family" siempre naman!) consisting of 2 kilos rice, canned goods, noodles, etc. some were given thermoses and plastic plates.

From a very early scheduled bidding, I had a chance to go on a rush side trip shopping at Metrowalk. Here are some clothes I got.
Get lost no more!
So, save time and gas locating places. Get yourself a Portable GPS unit too.

I'm not a politico, do I need to?
Monday, December 17, 2007
When I decided to vie for the Chairmanship seat a month before the campaign period, my only desire was to give our neighborhood a "complete face-lift" ( vanidosa's term for beautiful, joyous and peaceful place). Isn't it nice to belong to a community of closely knit and cooperative people living in a clean and harmonious place? Never did I realize that my willingness and dedication to serve would not be appreciated by a few green-eyed monsters and critics who still have grudges being defeated during the last election. There is truth in the saying that "You cannot please everybody".
In the span of not even a month that I took oath and sat as the Punong Barangay, there came a time when I thought of giving up the crown because of pressures, stress, tiresome trips to this and those offices to submit documents for a smooth transistion, council meetings, paper works and even using up my personal money "katakut-takot na abono" to make sure our Barangay copes up to all the requirements not to mention the foul comments of the chismosas around. But then hubby and daughter advised me not to quit since the barangay is just half in number of our male employees whose operational needs I head and further told me that no matter what ddecision I'll come up with, I'm still the Chairman! Sorry sila!
Sad to say, I'm missing my usual activities, my friends, vanities and beautification (bwaaaah..), posting and updating my blog entries and campaign ads, visiting my links, and doing my pending tags. I haven't even shopped for Christmas presents yet.
HOW WILL I TAKE THIS?
One time after my appointed Treasurer and Secretary came from the National Treasury to fix some documents with regards to our Fidelity Bond told me "Madam, may trademark ka na! One lady Chairman who was also working on their bond asked who our Chairman is and we told her si Chairman Vergara po yung pumalit kay Chairman Beltran. Sabi ba naman, ah yung magandang, suplada na maputi? Siempre protect and defend po namin kayo and told her di naman po yun suplada."
You see how people can pass judgement? Grabe! Buti nalang may consolation ako hearing the words maganda and maputi! Bwaaaaaaahhhhh......again!
Thanks for the friendship

America, the Concert
Tuesday, December 4, 2007
Now in the midst of its fourth decade of successful music-making, America invaded the local concert in a major show on Dec. 4 at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.
Hubby and I were looking forward to this concert billed as *All My Life* Philippine Tour,” the musical presentation at Araneta Coliseum. We were there promptly at 8:00 p.m. but it actually started at 9:30 p.m. after a front act by RJ Jacinto, Nyoy Volante and sorry I forgot the other one. I really enjoyed reminiscing my high school days singing one of their hits *Sandman* when we competed for an inter-school Songfest where we won first place held in San Beda College.
I was awed seeing Bongbong Marcos seated in the front row singing and dancing in his seat while watching.The crowd was stunned when *All My Life*, and *A Horse with No Name* were sung. Hmmmm.... those were my days!
