An Honest Review Of Senator Grace Poe's Presidential Bid Declaration

AKA FHM.com.ph's actual Facebook chatbox during the senator's momentous declaration.

Last Wednesday, Senator Grace Poe finally confirmed her plans of running for president in next year's elections. (As if we didn't see that coming...)

And just like with every other potential 2016 candidate, her announcement was under the watchful eyes of every media outlet, including yours truly.

This time though, instead of putting up the usual social media reaction piece (like the one we did on Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte), we decided to share with you our editorial staff's actual Facebook chatbox during Sen. Grace's declaration.

In other words, a casual conversation between—or rather, a piece of mind of—FHM.com.ph editors while the event was happening.


But first, a brief backgrounder on the suspects:

B.A. Borleo - The team's Managing Editor, who loves his family, the news, and #AlDub

Gelo Gonzales - Section Editor and go-to guy when it comes to the entertainment realm—but not of the chika kind

Neps Firmalan - Associate Section Editor; a household name in the local tech industry (Google it)

Ron Jay Eduvas - The angsty Senior Staffwriter; the fateful announcement coincided with his birthday

Engellheart Jarilla - Specializes not only in video production, but also as an office meme generator

Mary Rose Hogaza - Staffwriter by day, "fasyon guru" by night; the only rose among the thorns

John Paulo Aguilera - Just an overzealous Staffwriter (also an #AlDub fanatic)


You may want to listen to the senator's speech while reading to keep up with the conversation:
