Congressman Aga Muhlach.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
But before one of the country’s finest actors (or anybody
for that matter) can hope to clinch that title (oftentimes with
“Honorable” attached to it), he should first go through
the grind, a hard one.
After this corner’s “breaking news” about Aga’s
plan to run in the 2013 election for Congressman in Camarines Sur
(where he and his wife Charlene Gonzalez have already registered
as voters) several issues ago, there has been all sorts of reactions,
both pros and cons, but it’s up to Aga and not for us to make
the final decision.
Meanwhile, here are 10 lessons (unsolicited, really) that “Cong”
Aga has to learn before he takes that (fatal?) plunge into the murky
1. He should learn how to wake up early (that is, dapat aga gising);
2. He should learn how to be on time (on the dot) for meetings/appointments;
3.He should be ready to keep his doors open 24/7;
4. He should be ready to have his private life dug up and dissected;
5. He should learn how to connect to the masa;
6. He should be ready for intrigues worse than those in showbiz;
7. He should learn how to argue without losing his cool;
8. He should be ready to spend more time out of home than inside
9. He should set aside a personal budget (from his own pocket) of
not less than P100M (a conservative estimate from an actor who ran
and lost in an election); and
10. Walk, don’t run (remember that traffic sign for pedestrians
in other countries?).
Could it be true that a Liberal Party stalwart is dangling an invitation
for Aga to run for Senator, also in 2013?
