Tabaco Councilor Sheina Onrubia fangirls over senatorial bet Florin Hilbay
Tabaco Councilor Sheina Onrubia couldn’t help but like opposition senatorial candidate Florin Hilbay.
The two met again during the Otso Diretso rally in Naga, and Onrubia was pleasantly surprised when Hilbay asked her about her Obama Fellowship as she didn’t think he knew about it.
She described Hilbay as humble and sincere, and said she was always touched by his inspiring story of success.
Hilbay grew up as a poor boy in Tondo, but worked hard to get a good education, topped the bar exams and became the country’s youngest Solicitor General.
Of course, Onrubia couldn’t help but ask Hilbay about the rumor linking him to singer Agot Isidro. But he only laughed in response.
The konsehala also shared photos of her and Hilbay taken by her father and said her dad could probably relate to his parents who made sure their child got a good education.
Looks like Hilbay could rely on the Onrubias’ backing in the May polls!
“Last Feb.13 in Naga, I had the chance to briefly interact again with this honorable person.
Pilo: Oh, how was the Obama Fellowship?
Me: *surprised that he knows about this*
Kakaiba talaga itong si Atty. Pilo. Napaka-humble at hindi nakalimot. Una ko siyang nameet sa NMYL event last December. Naiiyak pa rin ako kahit ilang beses ko ng narinig ang kuwento niya sa personal man o sa video. Mula sa matinding kahirapan sa Tundo, siya ay nagpursigi at naging Bar topnotcher at propesor ng Batas sa UP at naging pinakabatang Solicitor General na tunay na nanindigan at nakipaglaban para sa ating bansa. 😊
Habang nagpipicture-taking, tinanong ko siya:
Me: Totoo po ba na kayo ni Agot Isidro?
Pilo: *tawa lang*
Ka-balentayms niya pala kinabukasan. Haha.
P.S. Kuha ni Papa (Arnulfo Onrubia) ang 2nd picture. Hindi ko alam na kinukuhanan niya pala ako. I am sure nakarelate si Papa sa mga magulang ni Pilo. Ipinaglaban nila ang kanilang pangarap para sa kanilang mga anak na mabigyan ng magandang edukasyon. Hirap man sa buhay, naniwala sila at nagpursigi,” Onrubia shared on Facebook.
