As the fight against the spread of COVID-19 continues in the Philippines, local government units (LGUs) have rolled out different efforts to address problems their respective cities and municipalities are experiencing. Netizens have taken to social media to salute various city mayors for their immediate and effective responses to issues and concerns raised by their communities.

Among the mayors being commended for doing their job as public officials is Valenzuela City’s own Rex Gatchalian. One of the efforts Valenzuela City has taken in light of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon is to distribute food vouchers to its residents which they can use to redeem food packs. They have also prepared isolation centers and modular tents for COVID-19 monitoring in the city, should they encounter COVID-19 positive residents.

Aside from these, the Valenzuela City mayor also mentioned on Twitter that he plans to create mobile palengke for the city, modeled after Pasig City mayor Vico Sotto’s initiative. A netizen had asked the mayor if Valenzuela could also have their own mobile palengkes, and in response, the mayor said, “Plano nga natin gayahin sila sa Pasig sa pamumuno ni mayor @VicoSotto. Kopyahan na eto!!! Wala naman tayo sa school e... in this case copying is allowed I think.”

Various netizens have agreed with the mayor’s sentiments in his tweet, saying that now is the best time to exercise team work and a healthy exchange of ideas among public officials, especially if it's for the benefit of their people.

Just a week prior, Pasig City also passed its Anti-Panic Buying And Anti-Hoarding Ordinance and credited Valenzuela City for providing the idea and framework.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
