  • Di na po puwede yung 1,000-pesos a day parking for trucks
  • Trucks in Paco Park are taking advantage of the no-towing rule in Manila. They leave the truck body in the Paco Park area. Isko Moreno will start towing them next week and charge them with obstruction.
  • Trapik sa maynila. What we are talking about is managing the traffic. If people will cooperate, we will be more effective.
  • Manila Bay Rehab Plans: We will cooperate with the national government.
  • Reclamation of Manila Bay: not my priority. I will not initiate anything. We will check if they complied with environmental protection. My obligation is to make sure the people are safe

  • “Kung ang plunderer napapalaya ano pa yung elepante na bata pa ako nakakulong na.”
  • Singapore – halaman lang attraction na. We do not need animals to put as showcase. If they can do it in Singapore, we can do it too.
  • Quiapo: i was given an opportunity to talk to the priests in manila and one of the major issues – its an incoming construction [permit sa cityhall], engr legaspi gave permit for a 9 story bldg at the back of quiapo church. The priests aren’t against the development. They agreed to 9 -12 floors only.
  • Wala pang zoning permit or special use permit for the ADDITIONAL floors. Whether it is 12, 27 -40…
  • Facebook — kaladkarin sa kalye -> that’s the kind of engagement
  • Health care kasama sa social amelioration program – it is free. Infra and vertical development are the long term plans. In two months we will have a presentation for you.
