MANILA, Philippines – “I’m the one who had cancer and died but I didn’t like it there so I came back.”
This was how cancer-stricken Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago greeted the media before she started her press conference at the Senate on Monday.
Asked how she was doing, Santiago said: “Well, I’m very bored with life. I’m not getting any worse or any better. I’m just sort of in a static situation.”
“I’m in a state of thermodynamic equilibrium…Meaning to say I’m not doing anything,” she further said.
Before the press conference, Santiago took the floor to deliver a privilege speech where she questioned the existence of the pork barrel funds in the proposed 2015 national budget and the new definition of savings, which she said was unconstitutional.
