Mayor Jed Mabilog gives cash gift to 100-year-old Ilonggo, but installment
Here’s to hoping that she’ll be alive to receive the rest of the sum.
Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog recently met the owner of the sharpest eyes in all of Iloilo City. She is none other than Lola Loreto Mercado from Tabuc Suba, who turned 100 this 2017. The politiko bonded with the centenarian and even saw her read the Bible without any glasses or contact lens, while Mabilog squinted with his specs on.
The politiko handed her a check worth P10,000, with the promise that another P40,000 will be awarded to the old lady once the 2018 city budget is passed and disbursed. What a birthday treat!
