Laughter is the best medicine they say, and Vice Ganda offers an unlimited supply of just that. Aside from being a multi-awarded host, sold-out concert performer, and phenomenal box-office star, Vice can now add author to his resume with his book President Vice—Ang Bagong Panggulo ng Pilipinas, published by ABS-CBN Publishing, Inc (it's only P175!).
Vice Ganda as president? Now that'll be interesting. And with all the problems we have in the country, we could all use a good laugh. Take a peek at how Vice plans to solve Juan's everyday dilemmas:
1. Cabinet Members. One of the first jobs that a newly-elected President must do is appoint people to be part of his cabinet. And when it's time to choose people who will head the different governemnt offices, Vice didn't have to look too far, because that's what showbiz friends are for. His cabinet will include Kim Chiu, Daniel Padilla, and Chokoleit, among others.
2. Traffic Rules. Vice knows exactly how it feels to get stuck in traffic for hours that he needed to take the MRT to get where he had to go. And because of that he came up with interesting ideas on how to solve this issue.
3. Public Transportation Rules. Taking the MRT, bus, or jeep during rush hour is a total nightmare, and Vice has witnessed that quite a few times, which must have influenced him in making new regulations for commuters and drivers alike.
4. National symbols. Out with the old, in with the new. And as Vice said in his book, "Marami na ang nagbago. Ang mga dating bago, luma na ngayon." And maybe he's right, it's about time that we change or add to our national symbols, like Pambansang Merienda, perhaps?
5. Declared Holidays. "May holiday ba this month?" is something that we all ask every first day of the month, and Vice feels our desire to have more holidays, so he's adding new dates to celebrate.
6. Social Media. #NoFilters, #Blessed, #IWokeUpLikeThis are going down, as Vice makes new amendments to stop people from using these commonly used hashtags.
