Sir Jorge Strong at 70 Years Young

The honorable and charismatic Jorge Banal of the Makati Distric celebrated his 70th birthday with family and friends in high places at the posh Makati Polo Club. Gilbert Obispo was my 2nd photog and Shierdan Pamintuan did the video. A true public servant all his life, Mr. Banal vigorously refuses to be called a "traditional politician” (or "tra-po" in the vernacular-meaning "dirty rag" literally). What a great man indeed and his many works show it!
