Second Mother – “I am deeply saddened by the loss of Manay Ichu. She’s my second mother, she treats me as part of her family. I am very grateful for all her care, love and support to me. I will surely miss you Manay and will continue to pray for the repose of your soul. My heartfelt condolences to her family and the Vera Perez-Maceda family. Rest in peace Manay. I love you.” – Honourable Congresswoman, Lipa City Representative Vilma Santos-Recto, reported by PEP, 07 September 2020

Thumbs-up – “She’s such a sweet girl who is turning into a sweet woman, I can see that they are happy together at parang nag-ma-mature na rin ang relationship nila. Sana tuluy-tuloy na para magka-apo na ako, hahaha!!! I don’t want to pressure them. At the end of the day, sila pa ring dalawa ang may hawak ng kanilang relationship. I’m just here to guide and support them kung ano’t-ano man.” – Honourable Congresswoman, Lipa City Representative Vilma Santos-Recto, reported by Ricky Lo, The Philippine Star, 7 Sep 2020

Bakit kumonti – “…Alam niyo sa totoo lang, pareho ninyo, ako’y nagulat…Kasi initially, maski sa mga pagdinig, alam ko kahit paano, maraming sumusuporta sa bill na ito na inilalaban namin…Biglang, bakit kami kumonti ng ganito na lang? Very significant naman na bigla na lang kami naging 11. May mga ganyang palakad na kung minsan ay hindi natin basta matatanong o makikuwestiyon. Maski ako, hanggang ngayon, hindi ko ma-absorb, nahihirapan ako…Kaya tayo naninindigan — nakita naman po natin na ‘yung mga iniisyu na violations, napatunayan din naman po ng national agencies na wala naman po talagang nalabag, Kung meron mang mga administratibong pagkukulang, ito naman po ay nako-correct. Meron naman po tayong proseso sa batas… Ang point ko, not to the extent na magsasara…Sabi nila, ginagawang shield iyong 11,000 employees…Let’s face the truth: more than 11,000 ang mawawalan na naman ng trabaho… With the present situation na hinaharap natin ngayon, ang dagok ng pandemyang COVID-19…I truly believe… I’m still very optimistic, we can refile. Puwede naman po ‘yan later on. Sabi ko nga, hindi dito magsasara ‘yan…” – Hon. Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto, reported by Miguel Dumaual, ABS-CBN News, 10 July 2020

Hindi Panahon Para Maging Heartless – “…I believe, hindi ito ginagawang shield, but we really…harapin po natin ang katotohanan. Sino po ang nag-iisip na darating ang pandemyang ito? Sino po ang mag-iisip na ilan na po ngayong tao ang wala na pong trabaho? So, ang point ko lang po sana, mabalanse man lang, mabalanse man lang sana yung ini-expect ko na magiging desisyon at mapag-aaralan. Yung hindi ginagawang shield, but we state the truth—11,000… more than 11,000 muli ang mawalawalan na naman po ng trabaho. At haharap na naman po sa… hindi natin alam kung paano ang susunod sa buhay nila with the present situation sa hinaharap ngayon sa pandemya ng COVID-19. Maski ako, hindi ko alam kung saan pupulutin ito ngayon, itong bansa natin. With the economy natin ngayon na naghihirap, walang trabaho, hindi ho ito madaling isipin. Yung sa akin lang po siguro, yung nasa isip ko lang po, yung mga kapwa ko artista, kahit papa’no makaka-survive ‘yan.Maraming opportunities ang pupuwedeng dumating sa kanila. Pero ang iniisip ko lang din po, yun talagang mga utility men, cameramen, yung mga make-up artists, yung mga ordinaryong empleyado. Hindi ganun kadali na sabihin na, ‘Wala ka nang trabaho ngayon, maghanap ka na bukas.’ Hindi po ganun kadali yun. Again, let me reiterate, iba ang panahon ngayon. Hindi ngayon ang panahon na ang tao ay maging heartless. Iba ang buhay ngayon, mahirap ang buhay, ang daming walang trabaho. Ang daming nagsarang kumpanya…” – Hon. Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto, reported by Arniel C. Serato, PEP, 10 July 2020

Walang Iba – “It was fine for family bonding during the first several days but after three weeks iba na. I started to suffer from anxiety, especially after watching the news about people dying and getting infected, people losing their jobs at ang pagbagsak ng economy. I was scared of everything. I’ve been working from home (WFH) at puro Zoom meetings. I am ‘high risk’ because of my age. Sabi ni Ralph (Sen. Recto), health should be the priority. Oh, by the way, na-control na ang anxiety ko. For protection, I take multi-vitamins and Vitamin C with zinc, and drink water with lemon and salabat. With my family (Ralph, Luis, Ryan and my siblings), including kasambahay, we exercise together every other day after my Zoom meetings. Mahigpit sa protocols sa mga lumalabas ng bahay. Ako man, sunod sa health protocols…frequent washing of hands and wiping with alcohol. This pandemic has made me realize na wala tayong ibang kakapitan at tatawagan kung hindi ang Diyos. Let’s continue praying to God.” – Hon. Rep. Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto, reported by Ricky Lo, The Philippine Star, 03 June 2020

The Most Prolific and Popular Darna – “Gifted with flight, super strength and invulnerability, Darna is the definitive Filipino superhero, the true Pinoy pop culture icon — and she just turned 70 on May 13. That makes her younger than America’s Superman (1938) but older than Japan’s Godzilla (1954). Created by Mars Ravelo, Darna first appeared in print in Pilipino Komiks #77, published by Ace Publications, on May 13, 1950. But like any great superhero, her origin story goes deeper than that. Ravelo, born in 1916, had begun thinking up the character who would become Darna long before she first saw print…The most prolific and popular Darna actress is Vilma Santos, who appeared in four Darna films: “Lipad, Darna, Lipad!” (1973), “Darna and the Giants” (1974), “Darna vs. the Planetwomen” (1975) and “Darna and Ding” (1980)…” – Ruel S. De Vera, Philippine Daily Inquirer, 24 May2020

Urgent Action – “While we take strong exceptions to NTC’s trickery and the OSG’s interventionist action we firmly believe the House now has the primary duty and responsibility to put an end to the uncertainties and confusion brought by the pendency of the application of renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise…equally important given the impact, economically and politically, of its continued shutdown in this time of crisis.” – Hon. Lipa City Representative, Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto, Politiko, 12 May 2020

Hndi Nagdamot – “Thankful ako sa pagtanggap niya sa akin na anak niya. Malaking malaking bagay iyon. Hindi siya nagdamot kahit isa na siyang Vilma Santos noon…Tinanggap niya ako, inalagaan niya kami ni Serena (Dalrymple) kaya sobrang thankful ako mommy na hanggang ngayon mahal mo ako…Malakas eh (ang sampal). Naging adult ako bigla…Iba rin ‘yung pakiramdam nung time na ‘yun na ang kaeksena mo si Vilma Santos. ‘Yung hinihingi nga ni direk Chito (Roño) sa akin noon, pagkasampal, humarap ako kaagad. Hindi ako makaharap. Sobrang lakas pero kailangan mo humarap kaagad. Ang daming nangyayari, ang dami kong iniisip…Never nila pinaramdam na superior sila. Talagang kapag kailangan ko ng tulong or ni Serena ng tulong, nandiyan sila…” – Carlo Aquino, ABS-CBS News, 18 May 2020

Vilmanian na Anak – “I am really honored to be able to be a part of ‘Anak.’ Kung hindi niyo alam, Vilmanian talaga ako bata pa lang. For me, yun na ang ultimate dream come true ko. Sabi ko nga noon kay tita Malou (Santos) nung inoffer ang ‘Anak,’ okay na akong hindi mag-artista basta makasama si Ate Vi…I had the support of Ate Vi throughout the shooting. She never told me na, ‘Ito ang gagawin mo.’ Yung preparation ko is I had to step up and I really had to focus. Naintindihan ko sobra na kapag nanay ka, kahit ano talaga gagawin mo para sa anak mo. Especially si Ate Vi, kung hindi niyo alam is one of my mentors talaga. When I [was] going through my lowest talaga, nandoon siya…” – Claudine Barretto, ABS-CBN News, 17 May 2020

Maingat at Laging-handa – “…Alam naman ninyo, 37 na ako, at sinasabi nga ng DOH na hindi na dapat maglalabas ng bahay. Kailangang sundin ang home quarantine dahil mahirap na laban talaga ito. Isa pa, may lockdown na ngayon sa Lipa. Pero hindi ibig sabihin hindi ko monitored ang sitwasyon. Work from home ako. Alam naman ninyo ako hindi ako matatahimik nang walang ginagawa. Itong trabaho ngayon sa ilalim ng community quarantine, nasa executive iyan eh. Kaya ang kumikilos nang husto ay si mayor at saka iyong mga barangay namin. Pero alam naman nila na basta may mga problema nakahanda naman kaming tumulong ni senador. Tumutulong pa rin naman kami. Tuloy ang paghahanda at pagtulong sa relief operations, dahil nagsimula kami noon pang pumutok ang Taal. Iyon alam mo kung ano iiwasan, eh ito hindi eh. Kaya medyo nag-iingat lang…” – Honourable Representative, Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto, written and reported by Ed de Leon, Pang-masa, 31 March 2020

Ka Pete, MGS and Two Vilma Santos films – “…Next I heard about Pete was that he got incarcerated at Camp Crame. That was in April 1974, three years to the month he helped us form Kamao. Next time we talked was in the period I won the Best Screenplay Award for “Burlesk Queen” in 1977; he had been released from prison. In my acceptance speech for the award, I said, “I did want to say something with ‘Burlesk Queen,’ and it is that art rises or falls accordingly as those in control of political power allow art to rise or fall. I accept this award hoping the day will come when art is transformed from being an instrument for private gain to an instrument for social good.” A group seated at the back of the gallery broke in a resounding hurrah. Pete must have listened to my words, for when we met after that, he cautioned me, “Ingat.” Readers are advised to visit ABS-CBN News online and search the article: “Writer Pete Lacaba remembers martial law.” The article delineates his arrest in 1974, and here is a paragraph that explains why he should give me that caution: “As soon as I opened the door, the first man who came in shoved the barrel of his rifle into my stomach. Then somebody spun me around and forced me to lie face down on the floor. In that position, I was stepped on, kicked in the ribs, hit in the back and on the back of the head with rifle butts.” Pete and I had more frequent meetings after his release. We busied ourselves organizing the Screenwriters Guild of the Philippines — of which he was elected president, with me settling for the position of secretary. We collaborated on the screenplay of a Vilma Santos starrer, “Pakawalan Mo Ako.” When a portion of my property was landgrabbed by armed men some years back, Pete took the occasion of his acceptance of a Life Achievement Award from Gawad Urian as an opportunity for exposing the attack and calling on government agencies concerned to take action…” – Mauro Gia Samonte, Manila Times, 07 March 2020
