Last Tuesday, I went myself to the Office of the Mayor of Calamba, Laguna to get the permit to shoot at the plaza. It was Gov. Jeorge Estregan who told me that a permit is needed.
I was impressed. Furthermore, I found the employees to be very kind, and courteous. It feels good to be in a government office with an air of efficiency in their workers. I easily got the permit that we needed to shoot To The Philippines at their Plaza where the tallest monument of Rizal is located. Congratulations to Mayor Joaquin Chipeco Jr. for having such a wonderful environment…and nice employees!
