MANILA, Philippines – Senate employees on Wednesday expressed their support for Senate President (SP) Juan Ponce Enrile (JPE) several days ahead of his 89th birthday.

They greeted him with placards saying “Happy B-Day SP JPE gusto namin happy ka (we want you to be happy), we love you,”

The Senate leader will celebrate his birthday on February 14, which is also Valentine’s Day. The Senate however is about to go into recess to give way to the May 2013 elections campaign period.

“Gusto ko happy ka!” Was the campaign slogan of Enrile in the previous election.

Another placard read “SP JPE we support you all the way” while another read “Happy kami pag happy ka (We’re happy if you’re happy)!”

The employees also sported heart-shaped stickers on their chest with the words “I love Enrile.”

Enrile went out and thanked the employees. He assured them that he will always be there to help them.

“Salamat sa inyo. Ang Senado ninyo, asahan niyo na tutulungan kayo palagi (Thank you. Your Senate, you’re assured that you’ll be given help if you need it),” Enrile said.

“Palagay ko naman eh wala naman tayong mga dumi dito na tinatago kayo tayo pwede natin harapin ang bansa ng taas noo (I presume we’re not hiding something here so we can all face the nation with pride),” he said to the employees.

    ang kakapal ng mga empleyado ng senado.

    pinangbobonus sa inyo ang pinipiga sa amin. magtrabaho kaya kayo at di lang kumakabit sa dilim sa mga anjan.

    • Ilihanboy

      Mga inggit lang kayo, kaya ganyan kayo magsalita. Mabuti na lang na merong Enrile na namigay ng pera ng bayan – yong iba diyan ay sinosolo at hindi na nakonsensiya. Si Enrile, palagay ng iba ay sobra sobra na ang naipon, kaya namigay. Aba, si Enrile pala ay makadiyos. KAYO, WALA KAYONG KWENTA, KASI MAHIRAP PA KAYO SA DAGA. 

      MGA INGGIT !!!

      • KonsensyaNgBayan

        KARMA-KARMA yan lang InihihianBoy!!!…Kung ano ang sinasabi mo babalik din sa’yo….mas mahirap ka pa sa DAGA!!…

    Happy birthday sir.  We love you.  THANKS FOR THE BONUS.

  • AsensadongPinoy

    Pano ba naman nde susuportahan eh pasasa sa bonus tong mga to. Hay…

  • virgoyap

    Alam nila na magbibigay ulit si Enrile ng “gifts” para sa kanila. Marami siyang mga “Gift” na na-save mula sa pera ng bayan.

  • Victor Carl

    Mga sipsip.

    “Enrile went out and thanked the employees. He assured them that he will always be there to help them.”

    What the basterd actually meant was: Stick with me and you will be rewarded with fat quarterly bonuses.

    The placards were sponsored by, well of course, by Happy toothpaste.

    Ikaw ba naman ang ambunan ng milyones na “gifts”, at di ka mapapa-“gusto namin happy ka at we love you”?. hehe

    Nakiki-“we love you” din kaya ang mga SENATONGS na tumanggap din (irregardless of amount) ng “gifts” tulad nina Legarda, Jinggoy, Trillanes, Drilon, Miriam, Cayetanos, ATBP?

  • Jim De Garman

    support from senate employees is nothing but just a show of ignorance, jpe is not the owner of the senate, the controlling points are the senators to select what they perceived to satisfy their interest and not these dumb employees.    

  • Jim De Garman

    enrile said  “gusto ko happy ka”

    gee said   “eh yong kahoy” paano na.

    Senator Enrile gives out public money to senators

    Enrile gave a whopping bonus of 1.6 million pesos each to 18 senators last Christmas. It is interesting to note that rather than hand over unused funds back to the treasury, Enrile saw it fit to distribute the so-called “savings” to Senate employees as a personal gift. According to the same report, even drivers and security personnel in the senate got bonuses ranging from 50,000.00 to 120,000.00 pesos.

  • ztefertilizerscam10

    Aba naman Enrileng Swapang,
    Puno ka ng grassa,
    Pinandidirihan ka ng tao
    Ang yaman ng bayan ay kinurakot mo 
    Bukod kang mandaraya at sinungaling
    Sasambahin ka  kabit mong GIGI
    Sumaimpierno sana ang kaluluwa mo
    At pinagmumura din ang lahat ng mga anak mong Rapist at Criminal
    Ang yaman na ninakaw mo
    Ay sindami ng kasalanan mo
    Ikaw ay sasantohin ng lahat ng 18 senator nakapaligid sa iyo,
    Dahil sa ninakaw  mong pera wala ng  natira sa….

    “The Chicago Tribune reported 15
    years ago that Enrile’s wife Cristina walked out on him in January 1998 
    after charging adultery.  The Tribune also reported that the “other woman
    “ was Gigi Gonzales-Reyes, Enrile’s chief of staff,  about 30 years
    his junior.”

     Liezl (daughter of amalia fuentes) left showbiz kasi ni-rape ni Jackie Enrile (son of Juan ponce Enrile, same guy that killed Alfie Anido..

  • ztefertilizerscam10

    Enrile’s only son Jackie Enrile was a notorious killer who killed several people including alfie anido.
     Let us also not forget about Tito Sotto’s involvement in the Pepsi Paloma and Guada Guarin 1982 rape scandal.

    Ang HAPPY lang dito ay si GG, ang pamilyang Kawatan at mga Senate Employees kasi malaki ang kamig nila sa Kaban ng Bayan.

    Ang Pilipino nga nman, mabiyayaan lang ng konti ay nagbubulag-bulagan sa katiwalian. Kaya nd tayo umaasenso ay dahila sa ganitong kalakaran.

    Sana pati ung mahihirap HAPPY din.

  • Philcruz

    Nakakasuka.  This melodramatic display of loyalty and utang na loob kuno to each other. Much like a Mafia don and his vassals.

  • geminimind

    This is always been the problem when people sing happy birthday,something comes to their mind,they think it’s christmas again because of same melody.

  • sakinlang

    Greetings kunyari pero ang gustong sabihin ay ” JPE, bigyan mo kami ulit ng BONUS! Birthday Bonus, naman this time!”.

    “Ang senado asahan ninyo na tutulungan kayo palagi” with outsized bonus unlike ordinary teachers, etc.

    “Palagay ko naman wala tayong dumi dito na tinatago kaya puede nating harapin ang bansa ng taas noo” except the billions of taxpayers’ money liquidated by mere certifications only.

    Ano kaya ang regalo ni gigi – “kahoy galing sa Samar-Leyte or black sand from Buguey, Cagayan?

    Ang galing ng mga supporter, katulad din ng mga supporter ni corona. Palagay ko namamatay na sa kakatawa si Atong…ang sabi….Hoy, gayagaya, gimik ko yan noon.
