Poe to Papa Jack's listeners: how to meet your soulmate faster

Presidential candidate Sen. Grace Poe joked about traffic and finding one’s soulmate in an interview with popular advice-giving radio host Papa Jack over the latter’s radio show on Wednesday.

For a brief moment, Senator Poe took a break from the seriousness of the election season and gave a love advice to those who are looking for a romantic partner.

“Sa aking mga kababayan na may problema sa pag-ibig, nais kong sabihin sa inyo na makakatagpo rin kayo nang mamahalin kayo. Huwag kayong susuko…” she said in a phone interview aired over Love Radio.

“At isa pa, kung hindi man kayo magkatagpo sa sobrang traffic e asahan po ninyo gagawin ko ang lahat para bumilis ang daloy ng trapiko at mahanap na ninyo ang inyong soulmate. Hindi, loko lang,” she quipped.

Similar with radio host Papa Jack who listens to his radio show caller’s problems, Poe also wants to be a president who listens to the sentiments of the people.

“Gusto ko namang maging isang pangulo na nakikinig dahil wala namang perpekto, hindi din ako perpekto, paano ko malalaman kung ano ang pwede kong gawin sa inyo kung hindi ko rin naririnig ang feedback?” she said.

“At minsan kung masyado ka nang kulong sa tinatawag na palasyo , sabi nga ni Gloc-9: ‘Subukan mo namang tumayo para malaman mo ang tunay na kalagayan ko.’ Dapat ganun ang namumuno dahil kung ikaw ay nandun na ay baka amagin na ang pag-iisip mo.” Poe was quoting a popular song by the rapper Gloc 9.

In the Veritas Truth Survey initiated by Radio Veritas, Poe scored the highest among presidential candidates perceived to have the servant leadership quality of listening. She got a score of 76.5%, or 3 out 4 respondents believing that she has the first quality of servant leadership.

On a serious note, Poe explained how she intends to solve the traffic concern in Metro Manila presenting different levels of approach. She highlighted the need to decongest the urban centers by developing the country side, faster implementation of projects, and looking into the proposal to build subways.

“Ngayon, mayroon din mga pag-aaral na baka naman pwede magkaroon ng subway system. Ibig sabihin ‘yung mga tren sa ilalim para hindi madistorbo ang trapiko,” the senator said.

“Kaya ko naman sinasabi iyon kasi kung magdagdag pa tayo sa ibabaw, lalo na tayo na-traffic pa. So iyon ‘yung mga iniisip natin na maaaring ambisyoso pero kung hindi naman tayo magpaplano ngayon, papaano na lang? Hanggang diyan na lang ba tayo?” she asked.
