The Mayor and the Songwriter
Alcasid serenaded the dignitaries and the large crowd gathered at the City Hall quadrangle with his signature hit Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang? (Why Only Now?) and inspired everyone to action with his new song Ang Galing ng Pinoy (Filipinos are Great).
Fresnedi and the City Government, as well as the people of Muntinlupa, are faced with the challenge of overhauling an outstanding debt of more than a billion pesos incurred by the past administration. This is on top of finding funds to provide basic services to all citizens.
Alcasid, in a bid to lighten the mood, gave this quotable quote upon seeing how he measured to the diminutive Mayor Fresnedi: "Sir, pareho pala tayong cute (We are both cute)." -MCPIO
