If the video for President Rodrigo Duterte's fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA) would be shown today as directed by Joyce Bernal, it would depict a harrowing trip of rejection.

After being spurned by the Sagada Municipal Council on Sunday afternoon, July 5, Bernal’s team led by Piolo Pascual, Ilac Diaz, and Bela Padilla proceeded to Banaue to continue their shoot.

Their original plan was to shoot in Baguio City and nearby areas, Sagada, Ifugao, Bontoc in Mountain Province, Kalinga, and Abra and so they decided to head to the Batad Rice Terraces to shoot footage for Duterte’s SONA on July 27.

They, however, were refused entry and promptly escorted out – enforcing an executive order issued by Banaue Mayor Dr Wesley Dulawan prohibiting travel in and out of Banaue from July 3 to July 10.

“The Banaue LGU stood its ground to protect the community.... From Mount Polis, the PNP escorted Bernal et al to the arch and out of Banaue,” said journalist and international aid worker Pinky Serafica.

Dulawan recently signed Executive Order No. 26 enforcing the weeklong travel ban to and from Banaue because of the detection of one positive COVID-19 case in the town.

The patient reportedly visited the nearby towns of Hingyon, Lagawe, Lamut, and Tinoc, which necessitated the travel ban to facilitate contact tracing in those areas as well.

After their Banaue rejection, Bernal’s convoy spent their long, long day traveling back to Baguio. About 6 to 7 of the crew then proceeded to John Hay Manor to spend the night.

But before that, they had to pass through the stringent COVID-19 protocol at the Baguio General Hospital triage.

Ferdie Balanag, a classmate of Bernal at the University of the Philippines Baguio and a good friend of Piolo, provided photos of the two undergoing the protocol. – Rappler.com

  1. Direk Joyce should just show actual footages of their experiences for the SONA. Anyway that sums up our life in the Duterte admin : disappointment, rejection, failure, defeat, hopelessness.

    6. 6:58 LP politicians? That’s so 2015. They already joined the ruling coalition under Du30 except for very few

    7. 6:58 everyone who is not satisfied with the govt's covid response. I'm sure masaya ka kasi nasa taas ang ranking natin sa paramihan ng covid cases. Para sa aming mga Pilipino, dilawan man o hindi, it is a prime example of how this govt mismanagaes everything.

  2. The law is the law. The Sagada and Banaue LGU definitely understand that and should teach the national government about compliance

  3. Ano ba purpose nito? Kahit nmn maglagay kayo ng magagandang sceneries dyan d pa rin maaalis na 47k na cases ng covid at marami pa ding nagugutom dahil d makabalik sa trabaho. I'm so disappointed that Bela and Piolo did this for the sake of friendship ba to or gusto lang nilang mamasyal?

    1. Di mo naisip na baka yang presidente mismo or his team ang nagpapunta sa kanila doon? Kasi para sa SONA nya yun eh.

  6. Pasaway talaga itong si bernal at piolo. Ayan kita na kung bakit maraming Filipinos ang hindi sumusunod para masugpo ang covid. Pilipinas lang maraming pakulo sa sona. Bakit hindi na lang gawin sa Malacanyang ng simple. Sipsip lang ang peg. Buti nga tinanggihan. Saan naman kaya ipipilit? 😠

  7. These people are full of themselves and wasting the people’s money. May police escort pa as if they are important people. She is too OA with her nonsense production just to show during SONA. it’s just a SONA, it happens every year. A yearly blah blah.

  16. Kudos to the LGUs! Napakanonsense lang na pinupush pa kasi ang videoshoot for sona. May pandemya na at kalat na kalat pa sa manila. Shooting a video is not an essential movement. Kahit para sa pangulo pa yan.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Pwede po ba simplehan na lang ang Sona, nasa gitna po tayo ng pandemic. Kailangan po sa Sona yung substance ng ire-report ng Pangulo. Hindi po production value ang hinihintay at titingnan ng mga Pilipino.
