Wandering Wanda and Congressmen

Dear Secretary Wanda Teo,

Balita ko po may byahe pala kayo papuntang Norway at Iceland kasama ang 4 na Congressmen with apat din na staff.  Wow, junket na naman.  Reps. Ma. Carmen Zamora of Compostela Valley, Mark Aeron Sambar (Puwersa ng Bayaning Atleta party-list), Paolo Everardo Javier (Antique) and Oscar Richard Garin Jr. (Iloilo) will be touring with House secretariat employees Cecilia de Sahagun, Julieta Apostol, Liza Mijares and Jocelyn Lim on July 14 to 22 ostensibly for purposes of observing the two countries’ best practices on gender equality.

Paki explain nga po kung ano ang koneksyon ng Gender Equality sa Tourism?  Luh, grabe sila 5 from your offices ang sasama sa tour.  Magkanong magagastos from tax payers money?

“Other tourism officials joining the junket, whose expenses will be shouldered by the DOT at an estimated P2.1 million for airfare alone, are Office of Tourism Development Planning, Research and Information Management Director IV Milagros Say, senior tourism operations officer Ruth Tizon and training and development division officer Jerlie Ganiga. The name of another DOT official, however, was unavailable as of yesterday.” (from reports)

2.1 million?  Yung totoo? Naisip nyo po ba kung ilang evacuees na ang matutulungan niyan sa Marawi? Even if your Assistant Secretary said na hindi ka kasama, as a department head, responsibilidad mo to supervise ang pag gasta sa pera ng bayan!

Sabi ng Philippine Star may document silang nakuha na na ang trip pala ay sa July 14-22. The document showed that the one-week trip to Iceland and Norway has an estimated budget of P2,156,686 for 13 international economy-class airline tickets for Manila-Iceland-Norway-Manila.

13 lahat, parang state visit lang ha.  Secretary Wanda, mahiya naman kayo sa taong bayan. Hirap na po si Juan. Wala naman pong relation ang Gender Equality sa tourism eh.

Konting delikadesa naman po sana.

Yamot sa Waldas sa Pondo ng Bayan,

PAB
