For the mayoralty race, it’s a toss between Congressman Oca Malapitan (UNA) and Councilor RJ Echiverri (Liberal).

In one of their interviews at DZMM last February 2013, Congressman Malapitan a 3 timed lawmaker in congress boasts of his accomplishments in education (National Science high School) ,health ( Dr Rodriquez Hospital as a tertiary hospital) and establishment of the 4 branches of the trial court.

On he other hand, Councilor RJ Echiverri, has the advantage of being dynamic and energetic because of his age. He is the youngest Liga ng mga Barangay president. His advocacies include violence against women, disaster risk management, alternative learning, and values formation.

It’s been 3 years after the last elections; my request in my blog then was to have a clean Monumento area, free from dirt and sidewalk vendors. It is still the same, the Grand Central area is still in chaos between 6 to 8 pm. So many people are at this area as they alight the LRT trains. Garbage, trash , sidewalk vendors are all over the place,

To the next mayor, can you please command the barangay captains of these areas, to make it a clean and better place?

May I also remind all candidates that a lot of people are still asleep in the mornings due to the work schedule at night e.g call center agents, nurses and those working in BPO’s. Please your loud campaigns jingles are not effective. They are a lot of times, a nuisance. Sabi nga “Serbisyo Hindi Perwisyo”.

For a busy mom like me, working 12 hours a day, every minute counts. At my age I have come to a point that I need to prioritize my activities for the day. I hate traffic and queuing because I believe those times are wasted. Sometimes I wish I am a senior citizen who enjoys discounts and always the priority when it comes to service.

One of the trend in today’s way of life is  buying online, products from food to books can be delivered right at your doorstep. Our family is fond patronizing online shopping. This saves time  and effort and most specially discounts are available. Aside from groceries , the drugstore or pharmacy is one of the place I frequent for our essential medicines needs.

Its good to know that medicines from The Generics Pharmacy can be delivered by way of City Delivery. Generic drugs from hypertension medications to fever and cough meds for both pediatrics and adults can be sent at your doorstep . Just order through their hotline, text line or website.

The Generics Pharmacy delivers via City Delivery, it is the First Medicine Delivery in the Metro.

For over-the counter-medicines, you may place your order directly via their

For medicines that needs prescription, kindly follow these steps:

  1. Order via hotline, text line or websites
  2. Email (orders@citydelivery.ph) or fax them a copy of the doctor’s prescription (get fax numbers from from CSRs)
  3. The CSRs will process your orders
  4. Wait for your orders to be delivered to you.
