I had to get up early from a recurring insomia to be at the Bulwagan (Manila City Hall) right at the Mayor's Office for an Oath Taking Ceremony with non other than the City Mayor himself administering. I came in at 1:00 a.m. as scheduled but the Mayor was still in the Summit at PICC. I was warmly welcomed by the Sampaloc Chapter President and Brgy Paco Chairman Carmen Moreno and the rest of the members with inspiring comments "winks". There was a couple from People's Tonight who were there to oficially cover the event and then asked if they can interview me soon about my Barangay Governance and activities when they deliver the photos.

I had started munching my Godilocks Mamon over iced tea when I saw the Mayor comng in. I can sense that he was in a hurry but still spent sometime for picture taking and to answer gladly a few questions from me regarding barangay affairs.
