Up Close and Personal With Sen. Chiz Escudero

Sen. Francis "Chiz" Escudero
Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero managed to schedule a press conference with the local media and the Davao Bloggers group while in Davao City to attend a wedding last June. Yes, his main purpose of coming to the City was to be one of the wedding sponsors but despite his busy schedule, he still took his precious to meet all of us. 

I really took this rare chance to meet the good Senator in person because I know for the fact that this seldom happens to an ordinary blogger like me. Meeting him in person is such an amazing experience that I can even consider it as one of the highlights of my blogging career so far.  I can say that the meeting with the Senator did not changed but even confirmed my impression about him. 

That he is…
  • smart and intelligent
  • charming and oozing with sex appeal ;)
  • humorous and fun to be with
  • man of  dignity and honor
  • a good father to his twins
  • a people -  person
  • a good person
  • an ordinary Filipino with an extraordinary dream for his country
I can go on and on with the list but truly, this man is very admirable and respectable. He spoke with passion about the things he loves doing when he is not busy with work like spending quality time with his kids, cooking his favorite dishes like adobo, tinola and paella, and restoring old cars that he can find online.

Charming us all :)
Seriously listening to the questions...
Senator Chiz was also clever enough to answer when asked about personal issues like the date he had with the popular actress Heart Evangelista and the current status of his marriage. I thought he would find these questions personal and offensive but instead, he answered them directly as honest as he could. 

When asked about his music preference, he played one of his favorite songs from his phone; in the middle of the press conference and was taken away as if he was a school boy. Of course, the bloggers teased him :). If I’m not mistaken, the title of the song is… Is it okay if I call you mine by Paul McCrane? At least he acts his age, right? Hehehe Peace Senator Chiz!
On a more serious note, Senator Escudero shared about the reason behind his vote on the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Corona, that he came up with the decision only a few days before May 29, 2012. His plan for 2013 election is not to run for the higher office but a re-election on his current post as Senator. He believes that to improve the country’s economy, the government should focus on developing the Agriculture sector. He also shared his take on divorce and annulment and talked about how expensive it is to file an annulment here in the Philippines.

After the press conference, we were advised by his staff stay for lunch as the Senator needed to leave shortly for another meeting.  In general, the press conference for the Davao Bloggers went smoothly as our group was separated from the crowd of hardcore media people. I salute the organizers for that! 

To sum it all, it was such an enriching experience to have met the Senator of the Republic of the Philippines up close and personal.

I hope you won’t find this post time-consuming, my dear readers. I couldn’t even believe myself that I have written this lengthy post. It’s just that whenever I recalled that day, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with the experience of meeting the charismatic and handsome Senator.

I heard so much of him as a senator and also saw hist stint at Kris TV. I think he is a good person and I just hope he is a different type of politician, not like the traditional ones.

Sir Chiz is very charming. He has this certain appeal with the mass that only him has..Too bad we were not able to have a chance to speak with him when he was here in CDO as he had to attend to a very urgent meeting in Davao...soon, we will have a chance to interview him too! Thanks for sharing! :)
