“I'm posting this now to make clear w/o being EPAL, that my sisters & I are shouldering the added expense to beautify the luncheon venue, mount the stage, and for the sound system, pianist etc, I was really just waiting to be asked because mahirap naman mag-atrebida, pero siempre we want to show them the best of our country.
“I am blessed to have many friends who stepped in to help us in close coordination w/ Malacañang, DFA & the APEC 2015 National Organizing Council & everything seems to be set.
“A SHOUTOUT of GRATITUDE to @pampamintuan for the mounting, @gideonhermosa for decorating the venue, @jasminip for artists' coordination, @thereyno & @romergonzales for the program scripting, MARAMING SALAMAT for helping us mount this event! WE are proud to be doing this for our national pride & in solidarity w/ our brother PNoy.”
