Mel Abas, leftmost, with Eddie and Lito during their college days
We know now why our classmate Mel Abas has yet to get in touch with us: he has been preoccupied with his political career in the United States, where he and his family immigrated a few years ago.
In fact, Mel is creating his own brand of tsunami in American politics by, lo and behold, jumping into the presidential fray. Yes, John Marte Marcella, you read it right. Our dear friend, one of our class’ best orators, is running for president of the most powerful country on earth!
Watch Channel 3’s news repor, Mel Abas for president, which delves into how a grassroots movement could possibly catapult a virtual unknown, a person no American voter has ever seen yet, to the highest office of that country.
Mel, manalo-matalo, tatanggapin ka pa rin amin. Kaya magpakita ka na!
Advance happy birthday on November 1, by the way.
