To Mon, Abby, and their daughters Nina and Sassa, we thank all of you.
Like so many people, I am saddened by his loss. But upon reflection of his life that was truly well lived, a life where he gave generously to the betterment of his fellowman, can we begrudge him for being in a better state now, back in the company of his beloved Abby.
In all this, Mon was not only our Tourism chief, but he was also someone instrumental in crafting the messages of my Administration. He helped unify the majority of our people towards achieving the successes that we could be proud of as a nation.
I was indeed fortunate to have a Cabinet whose members for the most part had a singular agenda: The improvement of the lot of our Bosses. Serving with them was so enriching, that we felt achieving the impossible would just take a little longer.
Might I note that for every foreign tourist coming to our shores, that resulted in one job created for the Filipino. Such contributed to the growth of local industry and the economy, empowering those in the sectors positively affected to take hold of their own destinies.
Meanwhile, international arrivals grew at an annual average of 8.8%, from 3.52 million tourists in 2010 to 5.36 million in 2015, as international tourism receipts increased from 135.5 billion in 2010 to 274.6 billion pesos before we left office.
Domestic tourism receipts more than doubled during his watch, from 713.8 billion pesos in 2010 to about 1.5 trillion pesos as of the end of our term.
The original target for 2016 for domestic tourism was 35.5 million tourists. But this was surpassed in Mon’s first year at the DOT with 37.5 million domestic tourists.
Mon as our Tourism Secretary achieved so much without ever complaining about the lack of hotels, facilities, airports, and infrastructure. He instead made do with what we had, and the results speak for themselves.
It fulfilled our need to promote the Philippines with a very limited budget yet would have a significant appeal to the target market that we were trying to reach. That meeting ended with all of us so energized as we were convinced that we had a winning campaign.
To my surprise, and that of everyone present at that meeting, the video that Mon presented was not just short and entertaining with its catchy music but was informative and very worthwhile.
Seeing the multi-stylized map of the Philippines on a multi-colored mat or banig, I must admit I was a bit apprehensive then, thinking the proposed slogan was another variation of the rejected campaign of his predecessor.
It reminded me of one of his first presentations as Tourism Secretary during which he had to explain the proposed tourism campaign.
Yesterday, after receiving the unexpected news of Mon’s demise, I glanced upon the case of my phone which had on it the slogan and logo of “It’s more fun in the Philippines,” which Mon himself had crafted.

Response to the open letter of DFA Secretary Allan Peter Cayetano:…
Sa aking pananaw, kung anuman ang magiging paliwanag ng mayorya, ang makikita lang natin ay isang pilit na pilit na desisyon. Ang tanong ngayon: Gaano kaya kaasim ang desisyong pilit nilang isusubo sa atin?
Makailang ulit nang nasabi ng Korte Suprema: Kung ang batas ay malinaw na, di na kailangan ng paliwanag pa. Klaro ang nasa Saligang Batas: ang impeachable officer, sa pamamagitan lang ng impeachment maaalis sa puwesto.
SA PASYA NG MAYORYA NG KORTE SUPREMA KAUGNAY NI CHIEF JUSTICE SERENO Marahil marami sa inyo, tulad ko, ang paboritong prutas ay mangga. Kung nais natin ang matamis na mangga, hihintayin nating mahinog ito. Alam din natin, pag pinilit itong mahinog, maasim ang kalalabasan nito.

[Adm-08] The quote is from PNoy’s remarks on 25 February 2016.
Ang sabi nga ng manunulat na si George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
Maraming mukha ang diktadurya; may iba pang personalidad na nais magbalik nito—ang ipagkait ang tamang proseso at ilagay sa kamay ng iisang tao ang pagsasabi kung ano ang nararapat o hindi, at kung sino ang inosente o maysala.
Yesterday, for mom’s birthday.
Supporters of mom visited Times with flowers and pictures of her, on the eve of her birthday. We thank all those who remain steadfast to her ideals. I thank Ging Deles for the photo.
Celebrated the LP's 72nd anniversary with friends and fellow Liberals, from long-time partners in the party that as one legislator joked in the past, “could fit inside a Volkswagen beetle with room to spare", to all the new members and the many who came to demonstrate solidarity.
Sa panahong tila pinaghahati-hati ang buong bansa, malinaw po, ang tanging susi para marating natin ang nais nating paroonan, ay ang pagkakaisa na nagmumula sa tama at makatwirang dahilan. Isang makabuluhang Bagong Taon po sa ating lahat.
A former staff photographer of mine who now works at the Senate was kind to share these photos. I thank all those who came out to help and demonstrated support.
The consequence of not taking the solution is to allow our poor countrymen to suffer further.
