Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama claimed that no public funds were used during a week-long “working vacation” in Singapore with his family.

Rama reported back to work on November 28, and during the flag-raising ceremony, the mayor said “not a single centavo” from the city government coffers had been utilized to cover their travel expenses.

His vacation included official activities that were in line with his Singapore-like vision for Cebu City, a report from the Public Information Office said. (

The mayor stressed that he is willing to sacrifice his own money for the benefit of the people.

“Wealth cannot give you life. But with the service you have offered, you will not be forgotten by the people even if you are already dead,” added Rama.
