Susan Roces Joins Grace Poe In Provincial Campaign Sorties

SUSAN ROCES tells us she’s not moving back to TV5 where she did “Babaeng Hampaslupa” before. “Ang Dos ang may offer uli sa’kin after ‘Walang Hanggan’, but I’m still busy with the campaign so saka na muna,” she says.

She joins Grace’s out of town sorties but on her own condition. She wants to sleep overnight to wherever they’re going so she won’t be pressed for time. She wants to take a commercial PAL flight, not a chartered one. But Grace’s staff says whenever they return home, Susan’s baggage allocation is frequently overweight as she often has ten balikbayan boxes of pasalubong, like dried danggit from Cebu. “Natigil lang siya sa GenSan,” says Grace. “Kasi hilaw at ang lalaki ng tuna kaya hindi niya puedeng ipampasalubong sa Manila.”

When it was Susan’s turn to speak, everyone was in rapt attention as she turned out to be a charismatic speaker. She did it impromptu, without reading from any notes, but she’s so articulate and clear you can’t help but listen to every word she says. If ever she herself would run for public office, we told her she’d easily win.
