DUMAGUETE CITY, Philippines  — Actress Pinky Amador traveled for an hour from this city to visit four remote communities in Sibulan town as part of the nationwide grand house-to-house campaign for the tandem of presidential candidate and Vice President Leni Robredo and running mate Senator Francis Pangilinan on Saturday, April 2.

Amador, together with the sister of the late former Interior secretary Jesse Robredo, Dr. Penny Robredo Bundoc, and other volunteers braved the mountainous and long travel going to communities that have never been visited by any celebrities or politicians.


According to Amador, never in her life she volunteered for a politician nor become a “political savy” to really do and on-ground campaigning.


“The essence of this campaign is all about getting out of our comfort zone. The people’s campaign is precisely about getting out of your comfort zones and reaching out to people and trying to make them understand, share knowledge with them, and push back fake news,” she said.

“We’ve been living in an era of disinformation. A lot of people are making decisions based on untruths, so there’s a need to correct. This election is very crucial,” she added.

The actress said this year’s campaign is beyond unconventional especially celebrities and artists like her have shifted their work from the usual performances and “spectacle” to an on-ground work.

“It’s a little bit of a challenge. We have to do our homework. I don’t just sing, I also give messages of support. So, I do my research. I look at what VP Leni has done in the community so that we have something to show to the people,” she said.

Amador also recalled her participation during the EDSA revolution that ousted Marcoses in 1986. She said the possible major comeback of THE Marcoses is a “palpable fear and danger.”

Amador said she is willing to risk her name just to stand for what she thinks is right.


“It’s a very small price to pay to get good governance. I am so sick and tired of the governance we had. The country really needs to have a change. We need to start helping the people who need our help,” she said.

Amador said what’s important is that people rise up and use their influence to educate people not just about a particular candidate but also about the issues that are important.

“This is for me one of our last chances, so let’s do everything we can,” she said.
