It’s not sure if former Tagbilaran Mayor Dan Lim will run for mayor (or congressman) and so did Maribojoc Mayor Leoncio Evasco, Jr. for  board member (or congressman) of Bohol’s first district.  Booy Captain Eutorgio “Jun” Telmo seems to enjoy keeping people guessing whether he will run for councilor in Tagbilaran or not.  According to reports, Kap Telmo is not really interested but people close to him are pushing him into…running?

“Politics is addicting,” said my media friend who heard that some of our friends are thinking if they will file their certificates of candidacy (COC) tomorrow, Oct. 12 (until the 18th).

“It’s a good thing that some media friends got back to their senses,” s/he said.

My unsolicited advice to them?

EJ goes to England

“The United Kingdom is a great place to visit,” said fashion icon EJ Relampagos  who is visiting the four kingdoms of UK—four days in England, three days in Wales, three days in Scotland and three days in Ireland.

He said that England, Scotland, Wales and the Offshore Islands offer a host of great vacation and holiday destinations with something for everyone.

“The weather here is predictably unpredictable!  Nevertheless, I think the UK weather loves me. Every time I’m on tour, the sun shines! Fair enough!” said EJ.

In England, he visited the Stonehenge, Big Ben, Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral (where Prince Charles and Lady Di were married in 1981), Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, Royal Courts of Justice and the Tower Bridge. Grosvenor (“Pronounced with a silent ‘s’,” said EJ) was a good place for another adventure.

“I experienced the London Eye which gives me the full aerial view of the City,” said EJ.

I asked EJ, “Did you visit The Queen?”  He said, “Unfortunately, the queen was not around when I visited the Buckingham Palace. I should know because the flag was not up at the top of the castle.”

 

EJ said that Wales, Scotland and Ireland are not popular tourist destinations but he said Scotland is the most beautiful so far.

“I love UK, it’s a totally different setting compared to the other countries I have visited before,” he said.

When EJ was online on FB last night, I asked him if how his tour was.

“My trip so far has been very hectic but a lot of fun and surprises,” he said.

“Did you cross London Bridge?”  I asked.

EJ told me, “I cross the London Bridge and Tower Bridge through a tourist shuttle.”

But he assured me that London Bridge is still there. (Remember the nursery rhyme?)

EJ said, “No, London Bridge is not falling down. The Queen had it fixed already! Ha! Ha! Ha!”
