Never in my life that I imagined I would have lunch with a senator. It all started on Ask.fm where the bot asked me which political figure I`d want to have lunch with. Senator Nancy Binay was the first one I thought of. Welp, it`s just a question, and it`s just an answer. Who would`ve thought the same senator would see it on Twitter and actually reply to me? To be honest, I was reluctant at first because who am I to be contacted by an influential personality? But one tweet lead to a Direct Message then lead to a text and a call from her staff and then there I was, sitting down on a table with my friend — who also has an advocacy for the youth, and a Senator of The Philippines. Hey, not just any senator, but the Nancy Binay.
I have no idea what to tell you guys as I am still starstruck from this afternoon`s affair. Our conversations with her were so casual, so calm, so chill. She was so friendly, simple and very much humble despite of her status and answered our every question with delight. I must admit that I wasn`t exactly a huge fan before, but after my encounter with her, everything changed. And in the youth`s saying these days: so much respect.
To Senator Nancy Binay, if you`re reading this, thank you so so soooo much for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It is an honor. I would never forget this day and I`m sure this would be a good conversation starter among me and my friends, HAHA! Thank you for calling us your "new friends" too, I am still overwhelmed. I can`t wait for the next meeting with you! ☺
In other news, my Sugar For Spike x Urban Decay giveaway already ended last night. Guess what? I won a $500 gift card for Net-A-Porter cause I had the most referrals! Thank you to all of you who joined and be sure to check your email! ;) I have been so busy this week too that I was not able to check my accounts besides my email. More giveaways and collaborations to come is my promise. My blog is just 6 months but I am already getting success. Thank you xo how you been?
