5 hours and still no sign of the senator who holds the distinction of being the first in the Philippines to win a senatorial election while in jail.
His appeal for a temporary liberty pending his amnesty application was granted by the court the other day after more than 7 years in prison.
He's currently facing rebellion charges for attempts to overthrow the previous administration.

12 noon and the heat was unbearable.
Food deliveries came and went for the fortunate ones inside the house with the senator.
Our only consolation...all members of the media were outside.
Not one of us got in to enjoy an exclusive on top of a possible free lunch.

Then...came the rain...
"Is 15 minutes too much?
He could just wave at us for video purposes.
That's the least he could do.
We've been here for more than 5 hours!"
I was just ranting in my head, of course.

"Hello. Good afternoon, Sir.
Is there any chance we could interview the senator today?"
That's the actual conversation.
"We would like to apologize," the senator's attorney said.
"We understand that your requests are reasonable.
While he could easily grant them, he's making a stand.
After 7 years and 5 months in prison, he wants to show his family that...
...ON THIS DAY...THEY ARE HIS NO. 1 AND ONLY PRIORITY."
Never mind the heat, the rain, the hunger...and the wasted hours.
HOW COULD ANYONE BE ANGRY AFTER THAT?
|My presence is my present? :) *lol*|
I even giftwrapped my head for you guys! Look!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYBODY!
Wishing you and your family a Merry Happy Christmas. :)
