A cub reporter was complaining about the

President's accessibility to the

media. Talking to another veteran mediaman, he

said it is harder now to get

through the President compared to those days when

he was still Mayor, Senator and even Vice President.The

mediaman said, "Pare, hindi totoo

yan! In fact they have installed a

very sophisticated telephone system over at

Malacanang. All you need to do is lift the handset

and presto you can talk to the

President anytime."

"Really?" said the amused reporter and hurriedly

ended the conversation. "O, sigue pare, thank you sa tip ha?

Tatawag na kaagad ako sa Presidente!"

And so the reporter got hold of a telephone and

dialed the Malacanang number, and this is what he heard:

"GOOD MORNING, YOU HAVE REACHED THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT.

IF YOU WISH TO TALK TO HIM IN TAGALOG, PLEASE PRESS ONE. IF YOU

WANT TO TALK TO HIM IN FILIPINO, PLEASE PRESS

TWO. IF YOU INSIST ON TALKING TO HIM IN ENGLISH,PLEASE

HANG UP AND DON'T CALL AGAIN!"

That didn't dampen the spirit of the persistent

reporter. He dialed the number again and followed the

instruction by pressing 1 (for Tagalog), and this is what he heard:

MAGANDANG UMAGA PO, ANG INYONG TAWAG AY NAKARATING

SA TANGGAPAN NG PANGULONG ERAP. SA KASAWIANG PALAD,

SIYA AY KASALUKUYAN PANG NATUTULOG. KUNG MAYROON KAYONG IBANG
