GOA, Camarines Sur – “Don’t stop dreaming, pursue your dreams, don’t lose hope,” Aga Muhlach told his relatives and supporters in mixed emotion, from feeling overjoyed to keeping himself from bursting into tears.
The showbiz actor said he was endowed with so much blessings from God, and that the Lord has been so good to him, as he gave words of assurance to the crowd during the Muhlach family reunion held Thursday (April 12) at Villa Peña Resort, Goa town, Camarines Sur.
The actor traced his roots back to 1917, to the late Concepcion Go- Amador Borja Muhlach, in Goa. His family has linkages with the Amadors, Borjas, Abundabars, Romeros, Lozadas, Valeras, and Callejas.
Aga’s wife Charlene Gonzales and their three children, Liezel Martinez, wife of actor Albert Martinez and daughter of Amalia Fuentes, accompanied the actor who has been making waves lately in Camarines Sur province that he is planning to run in the 2013 polls. The rumor mills had been churning out stories that the actor may run for Congressman, while Charlene will settle for a lower post.
Camarines Sur Governor L-Ray Villafuerte and Vice Governor Fortunato Peña attended the family reunion, considered by relatives as the first time in their clan history. Comedians Dinky Do, television- writer Alex Calleja, singers Big Mouth and Ate Gaile added light moments at the family affair.
However, the couple fell short of openly declaring before the local media that they are running for elective posts.
“I don’t want to openly say that I want to run for office in 2013. The people must want it, they must clamor for me that I must run,” Aga told BicolToday.com when asked if he has openly declared his intention to run.
Before the Holy Week, the Muhlachs faced complaints from several persons who filed a joint petition asking the San Jose (town) Comelec to deny the couple’s applications for registration as voters. They filed voters application at San Jose middle of March, and gave their home address at the town. Their reported house is still being renovated. Ironically, the petitioners are the same people who will be their future neighbors.
The complaint against the couple, suspected as instigated by scheming politicians, was their first dose of bitter Camarines Sur politics.
The Comelec office Wednesday informed BicolToday.com that the hearing set for the Muhlachs’ disqualification as voters is on Monday (April 16). BicolToday.com
