The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak; Naga Councilor Cecilia de Asis sorry for turning down Xmas party invites


Tis the season when Filipinos get together with friends and loved ones, and hold numerous, seemingly non-stop parties.

It’s much the same for politikos, except that they tend to get a lot of invitations from groups of all sorts who hope for their presence at their gatherings.

Naga Councilor Cecilia de Asis laments, though, that she could not say yes to all invitations coming her way.

After all, she only has one body even if she would want to be in multiple places at ones. Sometimes, it’s her wandering mind that prevents her from being present, she said.

“Its the time of year where you want to spend time with friends & family but – to public officials like me, a difficult one. Dami imbitasyon dapat mapagbigyan, daming tao naghihintay at daming pagkain d matangihan😀 … so pasensya na sa mga okasyong d nakasipot, iisa lang ang katawan gustohin man wala magagawa – d spirit is willing pero bumibigay na ang katawan😔 atMinsan lumilipad na tin ang isipan ,” she posted on Facebook.
