Soon enough, Noynoy will eclipse Kris is popularity - nothing like running for the Presidency to make you a household name.
Eduardo Cojuangco's Family Tree
Eduardo's side of the Cojuangco clan is also not short of the rich and famous - foremost is 7th Richest Man in the Philippines in 2009, Eduardo Jr. or Danding Cojuangco. Danding is Gibo's uncle, brother of his mother Mercedes Cojuangco who is married to Gilbert Teodoro, Sr., former SSS Administrator.
So, now we know who Gibo is and how he is related to Noynoy - it's time to know what he is about. My first impression is one of pleasant surprise, his resume is quite impressive. But performance matters much more than what is on paper. I am looking forward to reading more about him, Sen. Noynoy Aquino and 9th Richest man in the Philippines (pero taga-Tondo!) Sen. Manny Villar. For starters, I've followed them on Twitter too. ;)
It's still a long way to go before election day. It will be very interesting how each candidate will try to win the people's votes while keeping their integrity and composure. Public scrutiny will be at its highest for them - beginning now. Good luck.
