Cebu Gov Garcia spends Christmas inside office

CEBU CITY—Christmas songs filled the room. Food and wine were served. Children were running around as family members and friends were engaged in conversation.

It looked like a typical Filipino Christmas eve celebration but it wasn’t.

Suspended Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia and her family members spent Christmas inside her office at the capitol as she continued to defy Malacañang order suspending her for six months for grave abuse of authority.

Garcia told reporters on Tuesday that this year’s celebration was “most different” because for the first time, she and her family had to spend it away from their home.

She said that usually, she and her family members would gather at the house of her parents, Deputy Speaker Pablo Garcia and retired Judge Esperanza Garcia, in Dumanjug town, southern Cebu where they would exchange gifts.

This time, she added she was not able to buy gifts for her loved ones because she could not leave her office due to the suspension order.

Yet, her Christmas this year was most meaningful.

“Christmas is not about the place. It’s about the people. Even if we are facing a big crisis now, this is where we can see the importance of family. The family stands behind you and this is what they showed me last night,” said Garcia.

Also joining Garcia in celebrating Christmas are her children, in-laws, nephews, nieces, grandchildren, brothers, several friends and supporters.

Christmas songs were being played at the governor’s office as the guests arrived. Two round tables covered in emerald green table cloth were set up at her office.

Before taking dinner, Garcia sang a famous Cebuano Christmas carole, “Kasadya ning Taknaa (‘Ang Pasko ay Sumapit’ or Christmas has arrived).” She was joined by her father, Deputy Speaker Garcia, daughter Christina and her husband, Liloan Mayor Duke Frasco, and her son Paulo.

There were baked stuffed turkey with cranberry sauce, lechon, fried shanghai lumpia, beef steak and caldereta spread on a rectangular table, some of which were brought by friends and relatives.

Desserts included buko pandan, assorted cupcakes, chocolate cake, grapes, apples and oranges.

Bottles of Sumiller Manny O wine were served to the guests.

Unlike the usual capitol parties, there was no waiter to serve food to the guests.

Instead, house helpers of the Garcias served as waiters.

When the clock struck midnight, Frasco surprised his wife, Christina with a birthday cake with two lighted candles. Christina turned 31 on December 25.

Christina, Paulo and his wife Michelle then surrounded Garcia and hugged her.

    Ginawang ekstensiyon ang opisina ng bahay nila? o maraming gawaing kaya sa opisina nagkrismas?

    • Luthmar

      Oo nga.  Dapat kasi pinutulan ng electricity at ng water supply yang Capitolio.  Govt. property yan.  I’m sure lakas ng konsumo ng electricity at water dyan.  All day at all night ang takbo ng air condition.   At sino ang nagba-bayad ng bills – tax payers di ba?   Sinuswerte itong mga Garcia na ito.   Abuso talaga.  

    • indiosbravos2002

      Similar to Corona, she treats her position as her property. Thats why she has difficulty letting go. When can politicians learn that public office is a PUBLIC trust and not private property.

      • D_BystandeR

        Ewan ko ba, parang may nakatagong “pandora’s box” d’yan sa loob ng kanyang silid kaya sabi niya, “Over my dead body!” That is the result of three consecutive terms as governor kaya lumaki ang ulo tuloy. Ayaw na niyang  makinig kahit karamihan sa mga taga Cebu ay ayaw na sa kanya dahil sa maraming ginawang “korakot” tulad sa “amo” niyang si “pandak.” She was pampered by GMA that’s why she is thinking she is “above the law.” Just imagine, the newly installed Gov. Magpale just recently discovered that Gwen during her “heydays” has entered into a $14,000 monthly contract with her Sugbo TV to have satellite uplink and another monthly contract of P100,000 to Skycable all used to promote her personal image because she was earlier known to have decided to join the senatorial race. But when poll survey was seen she occupied the “tail end” part of it she slid down to run for Congresswoman of Cebu 3rd District.

  • http://pedestrianobserver.blogspot.com/ Political Jaywalker

    If the intent was to portray a persecuted martyr, Garcia is definitely failing to do so. She is just showing the opposite of how very dense and desperate she is, LOL. What a pathetic display of desperation and criminal mindset of elected public officials who are the first in line to break the laws in preserving their stranglehold to political power.

  • AlexanderAmproz

    Corruptions mean Children’s death, specially in Cebu,

    no pity for this kind of filthy rich corrupt criminals

  • Luthmar

    Wowwwwww, what luxury.  Naisip kaya ng mga Garciang ito ang situasyon ng mga nasalanta
    ng bagyo, lalo na sa Compostella Valley?  But then again, for people who do not have conscience, but wrong pride,  what is happening outside of their turfs – wala silang paki. 

    Dyan ka na rin mag New Year Gwen.  Sino kaya tinakot mo na manatili ka dyan hanggang matapos yung suspension order.  Kaya lang poor tax payers who shoulder the electricity and water that you and your family consume.  SHAME ON YOU.

    • William Dave

      most of this Garcia’s bloodline are in politics. from the barangays all the way to congress.  it’s about time they cut power and water supply in her office that she’s making an apartment out of.

  • josefe38

    Governor of Isabela named Lady Padaca, accused for alleged graft and corruption. An arrest warrant was issued but she was never arrested. Then Abnoy came to her rescue. With his own wealth and power, he posted bail for Lady Padaca and appointed her Associate Commissioner of Comelec.
    Now look at the difference: On the other hand, Governor’s Garcia and Espino of Cebu and Pangasinan, respectively, are allegedly being persecuted… but Abnoy claims his actions are not politically motivated. That’s what we call a compartmentalized justice, to the cult members of abnoymal, please explain to the Filipino people that Abnoy’s, action is “Moral”, for it seems morality has a different meaning for some heads in Malacañang Palace. 
     What is happening to this country today is a selective Justice system that under the Abnoy Regime.
     When the Office of the Ombudsman issued an arrest warrant against Isabela Governor Grace Padaca… the President then despite the documented evidences presented, issued statements to clear Gov. Padaca’s name, then using his own money, he posted her bail… then appointed her as Associate Commissioner of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
    But for Gov. Gwen Garcia, Abnoy slapped her suspension just before the Christmas break…where our Court of Appeals (CA) don’t have offices to hear for TRO. What a heartless President we have in Mr. Aquino! Clearly, anyone who does not belong to the Liberal Party (LP) and is facing administrative or graft charges; will certainly get the ire of this kulukoy president.

    • sakinlang

      It must be former governor Padaca . Most politicIans are heartless, the Garcias included .

    • AlexanderAmproz

      Grace Padaca is probably the most admirable and respectable women of the country.
      A successful flagship anti Trapos Dynasty, she never steal one Peso. You are probably mistaken her with the rubbish Dy Dynasty, or paid by them to discredit her !

      I will have done the same as P-Noy, closed eyes !

      She will be easy cleared of any charges, a small mistake is not similar as the 
      leaders casual criminal attitude, 
      abundant killings and stealing, is a permanent obsession by most of the Politicians and officials. She don’t belongs to them !

      Your comment is shamefully toxic.

      • http://twitter.com/tcdowitter Eva Torres

        I agree

    • D_BystandeR

      I’m afraid you have a distorted interpretation of how good governance is done and you can be excused for that because you are largely influenced by your strong personal hatred against our beloved President Noynoy. Just imagine addressing him in a most disrespectful name, “Abnoy.” I just hope it will not affect you physically because it is not good for your “heart” and God forbid, it could cause you to change your “birthday” to November 2 if you are not careful. I have read the explanation before of Ex-Gov. Grace Padaca and I am convinced by her honest explanation because if you have to look at it seriously you will notice that she was guided by her “innocent” interpretation that she was doing it for the “greater good” of a majority of her constituents but her political detractors were “quick” to concentrate their attack on the technical aspect and comparing this with the case of Gwen Garcia, the suspended Cebu Governor, is sad to say, “poles apart.” She was outrageously and disgustingly abusing and treating her Vice Governor Greg Sanchez to the level of becoming “the most maligned Vice Governor that Cebu ever had.” And right-thinking Cebuanos knew too well that VG Sanchez has suffered so much in the hands of Gwen for what she did was too much a man could bear.  That “abuse of power” has “indirectly” put Gwen Garcia as having ultimately caused him to “meet his Creator” at his early age.
       

      • William Dave

        it’s crazy how they’ve been comparing their case to Padaca when she’s not even  filthy rich as them Garcias.

      • boldyak

        so, is it okay for you that a poor individual commit corruption and not okay for a rich individual?…

    • NE5560TOR

       you are ignorant. Pnoy provided the bail because he believes in the innocence of padaca. What he acted is within the bound of laws. Any one can choose to provide the bail and pnoy chose to provide.  Gwen garcia’s case is an administrative case and found guilty by virtue of power of supervision of the president over local official of abuse of authority. She defied a lawful order. Let us see, unless she get an order from the court, she will be forcibly removed and because of her defiance she is courting more cases

    dagdagan ang kaso niya… illegal trespassing… using public funds for” personal use ” – cost of occupying the capitol office… 

  • Filipinoflash

    No one prevented Garcia from leaving her office. In fact the government will be most happy if she leave the Capitol immediately. 

  • Filipinoflash

    Garcia is using this suspension order for political mileage.  She wants to portray the underdog. Its not surprising because Gwen Garcia is such a self centered delusional person.  At one time, she launched a photography contest where the one who caught her with nicest pose or pictures wins the Award.  She will make squeeze whatever she can get for propaganda purposes her stay at the Capitol. 

    This is political gimmickry. 

  • prodigalson60

    Illegal use of capitol as venue for family christmas party! The suspension was ordered due to “grave abuse of authority”. Now this is a case of “grave abuse without authority”! the birthday celebrant (her daughter) is one of her lawyer and how true that she is a capitol consultant under the office of the governor? paano na yan…pati congressmen father and brother, mayor brother all supporting the defiance of the suspension order! grabe naman yan! attention DILG: are elective officials who are related to the suspended governor and officialswho are party affiliated make them exempted from any desciplinary sanctions for supporting the defiance of an order of the OP?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XXMVC66BK2NJINS3UEVPU7UDNM Joe

    In other countries, an honorable politician would readily resign or take a leave of absence on a mere suspicion or accusation of wrong doing to allow proper and unhampered investigation of the matter.  But in this country, investigations have already concluded that there was indeed some irregularities committed, as in the case of Gwen Garcia, politicians would continue to hang on to their positions like leaches, to the extent of gathering their equally dim-witted followers to barricade the premises to prevent authorities from physically throwing them out of their offices. And yet we address these arrogant, unethical, dishonest, irreverent and thick-skinned politicians as “honorable”?  ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES.

    Birds of the same feather flock together in UNA.

    • ARIKUTIK

      In other countries no sensible DILG will ever suspend an opposition governor 6 months before election. Only an Abnoy head will do a dispecble act thinking that people are as dull as an Abnoy.

    Former Gov. Garcia doesn’t earn disrespect from anyone even if she didn’t respect the decision of DILG Sec. Mar Roxas. Only people who are drunk with power can afford to be arrogant. The former Gov. still feel she’s on top of the world (Capitol building) and Cebu people are her slaves. She should come down from her pedestal and respect the law by abiding with DILG decision.

    Kahit sabihin ni Lacierda na on-leave si Mar Roxas sa LP, siya pa rin
    ang kumukumpas sa partido. Huwag na nga niyang bilugin ulo natin.

    This is only show how indifferent the governor is…instead of spending X’mas in their family home she did it at the capitol coz she was afraid of losing it and her greediness to hold for power. The best thing she should do is follow the order and if the court decide that it is illegal then she can comeback . But this one is showing her real color for not following lawful order. She is lucky as the DILG and the president are playing cool otherwise she will be force out of the capital..or probably she is given more time to think wisely before the gov’t do drastic action! Wake up governor!

    mighty bond gwen’s already dug in her office so the only way to remove her there is through forcible eviction and there’s a possibility of violence to happen if the gov’t decides to do that. but one thing is for sure, the present gov’t/LP leadership are now weighing options just to avoid any adverse reaction of the cebuanos on their plan to control vote rich cebu come 2013 and 2016

    “Christman Inside an Office” is a true to life story of a suspended governor destined to shatter some of the box office top grosser of all time in the fantasy land of Philippine politics.  Appearing in cameo role are no less than the #2 and #3 officials in the hierarchy of the Banana Republic and a former jueteng lord of lords who happened to be a former president convicted for plunder in real life but was later pardoned by another former president who is currently under hospital arrest for the same offense.  Being true to their selves as birds of the same feather that flock together, these big time supporting cast actors with their noses covered were slung into space by a pseudo political party and summersaulted to a swamp in the Osmena county of Visayaslovakia unmindful of the horrible stench emitted by an odoriferous thing called political dynasty not only to give unequivocal support to one of their own but also to advance their own personal agenda.  The climax of the story will surely be
    remembered and debated for years to come.

    Defying a suspension order is an ironic way to show you are innocent of grave abuse of authority.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_O5TQQYPGVHXCQLU4BRQR4FVBNA ramone

    Gwen is a mere resident of the Capitol now since all offices under the Governor has now recognized the acting Governor. Thus, her obstinate refusal to leave her office does not mean that she still controls the province. She is simply adding to the confusion. If she were a true states(wo)man would not have any second thought but to leave her office graciously. Leaving the office now, while the court hears her, would have shown her states(wo)manship.

  • AlexanderAmproz

    What is really surprisingly  shocking is this kind of leaders !

    They have a streets Toughies self Respect and Dignity, its mean, NONE !

    If you don’t respect your self, how to respect the others, it’s a Slaves attitude !

    Same problem with most, since 450 years, getting from the dominating Clergy injections,
    on purpose of enslaving the population to rob the country of any wealths for the Vatican and the Kings, today, mostly for Chinoy’s. This is done with fake religious teachings and fake text books.

    At the American arrival, the Clergy teaching was pre Galileo time, 400 years delayed !
    The American brought mass murders (40% of the population) while burning all locals roots on domination purposes, no comparisons with the Disgusting Spanish System, smarter with a moderne efficiency.

    Pilipino’s knowledges about History is a blank page, on purpose !
    If you don’t know where from you come, you will not know where to go !
    If you don’t know who you are, you will not know what to do !
    The result, just look around, a stinky fishy poverty with Children’s dying of lack of food and cheap available health care made expensive for them !

    No respects at all for her constituent’s and Cebu Dignity !

    The only respect she has, smart abuses, she was grown up with that spirit, her only excuse !

    Ready to be drag by the foot out her office to keep the family loots,
    that why she loved GMA and found confident with her, out of the same wood*, same feathers !

    * Bamboo wood: easy to produce, strong, easy to band, full of worms after short time, pollutive medicines needed !
    Politicians should be made out of Termites free wood, Kamagong, Bayong(Balayon), Tugas(Molave), it should last for ever, alike Jose Rizal, Bonifacio, Mabini, Leon Kilat and many others

    In case her conscience will have been at peace,
    she will have walk straight standing with dignity, out of the Capitol,
    looking at everybody in the eyes, going back on the same way, with respect, knowing she had honesty followed he convictions of Duty.

    Her attitude show the family guilt.

    Her family asset must to be put under scrutiny, as soon as possible, dollars account included.

  • Facilitator1

    With “due respect” Gov Garcia, your continued defiance against a “legit suspension order” and your decision to stay (at your office) at the capitol is NOT a sign of ABUSE by higher authorities but POWER HUNGER and /or POWER DRUNK on your part.

    This incident can’t be compared to VP Binay (then a Mayor of Makati) defiance to GMA because the citizenry then perceived GMA as corrupt and dishonest and as such, VP Binay’s suspension order was considered unjust/unfair and as a result, the majority of the citizenry supported VP Binay’s decision to stand against tyranny. PEACE…

    • ARIKUTIK

      GMA maybe percieved as corrupt but a 2nd hand helicopter can be seen and useful for the government. Penoy of ‘Daang Matuwid’ had eaten up 39 billion CCT, year after year of Loaned Money. More than what GMA can commission in 9 years. The yearly 39 Billion CCT was not seen by anyone and never can it be useful for the government. Who is more corrupt Now ? Daang Matuwid through CCT, tuwid na tuwid walang makaka alam kung papano kinain ng Bugok na Penoy. yeheyyyyyy……. ang galing galing ng naglahong CCT, hindi makita ang > The Greatest Corruption ever done in PH.

    Abused of power ni Garcia dahil sa binawasan nya ang power ng vice governor. Tingnan natin , Marami ngayon sa mga pulitiko ay abusado, ang number one ay yang si Presidente Noynoy. Pinatalsik nya si Corona at ginamit ang dating strategy ang palabasing magnanakaw si Corona. Naka hospital arrest si Arroyo di pa man nalilitis. PERO si Padaca na may kaso ng Pandarambong ay piniyansahan nya at itinalaga pa. Si Abalos na di pa proven guilty ikinulong ng di nalilitis. Kaya kung may Huwaran sa pagka abusado ay yan yang si Presidente Aquino. Pinasusweldo ng bayan pero abusado naman. SAYANG LANG ANG IPINASUSWELDO NG BAYAN SA ABUSADONG IYAN! PAG KALABAN KAKASUHAN PAG KAALYADO PIPIYANSAHAN. UTO UTO AKO PAG NANIWALA AKO SA KANYA!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UEHZP52OVNUUPVT3VJNWPUGVLU Peter L

    In politics, decency is hard to define. Each politicians harness the theorem, “the end justifies the means.” If we are watching with horror why our society has turned into a hell, it is because we have allowed it to be so. The present administration have forgotten the maxim that you should be magnanimous in victory. Former president Corazon Aquino said it and she even extended the arm of reconciliation to the opposing parties then. The son is overdoing his actions. Instead of managing the government with justice and mercy, he is harnessing the tool of persecution to eliminate his political opponents. Instead of working with them to promote peace and harmony, he believes it is time to exact vengeance. Justice without mercy leads to mediocrity.
