Gabriel Bordado references Paulo Coelho


Camarines Sur 3rd district Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. fondly remembers this 2015 upload for two reasons: first, the award Naga City won that year; and second, his Paulo Coelho-inspired line.

“EXACTLY A YEAR AGO: I love this photo with barangay and fellow city officials taken a year ago. I even captioned it a la-PAULO COELHO: ‘By the RIVER NAGA, we sat down–and smiled!'” he wrote on this Facebook post.

Coelho is a famed Brazilian lyricist and novelist.

When situations make you feel good, you really can’t stop the creative juices from flowing. Right congressman?
