    Hi Daisy, I’m from Siaton and educated at Cathedral College back in early 80s, this name already been changed. I like the idea of a change in our Dynasty of Political power as it has been in the Philippines. We need people who are a doers of their promises to the PEOPLE who voted and whom they should served NOT themselves.
    I am one of
    Filipino-Australians who are celebrating the election results of the 2019. I am aware that nothing is perfect, but at least people are waking up due to being fed up of Politicians who served but themselves.
