We tweaked it a little lang just to adjust to our terrain na small roads, but the overall concept is the same. Thanks for your concept!” Gatchalian told Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto in a Twitter post.
Sotto replied: “Solid ‘to! I will show the team who designed ours. It will be a big morale booster for them!” Sotto also said that he will “continue to copy a number of” Valenzuela’s best practices, which includes the distribution of goods for families affected by the enhanced community quarantine.
