On the Campaign Trail in 2010: TG Guingona with bloggers in his HQ in QC
In 2010 I campaigned for several candidates who I thought were truly deserving of being in the Senate. One of the senators I campaigned the hardest for (next only to my Tita Toots of course hehe) is Senator TG Guingona. Today I can say that I am happy and proud to have campaigned for him.

When I heard the news that the law was passed, I was thrilled. The version I read last year basically gave the government power to go after people behind child pornography, cybersex (which are closely related to human trafficking), identity theft, spamming, and hacking. This struck close to my heart because I remember visiting PNP a few years ago with Sonnie Santos to meet with Col. Sosa of the Angelnet group. There were a couple of foreigners roaming the grounds and when I asked the police who they were they said that they were caught for exploiting Filipinos by paying them to do child pornography and cybersex. The PNP couldn’t put them into jail because there was no specific law against it. My heart was crushed when I heard this. That’s why I was happy when I finally found out that the law that will help the PNP get these people behind bars was passed.

Well I finally get to cross this out of my bucket list! I was tapped to be one of the online brand ambassadors for e-commerce portal Lazada.com.ph. Not everyday this happens so it definitely deserves a blog entry for “immortalization”, hehe.
