After a chance encounter at a waiting lounge of an international flight carrier, Richard Gomez and family got the chance to catch up with old friend Aga Muhlach and wife Charlene Gonzales in a post he shared on Instagram last December 10.
With Aga having experienced running for public office but lost his 2013 congressional bid in Camarines Sur, politics was among the topics they discussed and Goma encouraged his old friend to give it a try once again.
“We had some time to talk about the things we’ve been doing. We talked about politics and I told him to run again because I know that public service is really in his heart.”
Richard, who has also experienced failures with his bids for office since his first attempt in 2001 as a congressman, finally got elected as Ormoc, Leyte's mayor in 2016.
I was so happy to see Aga and Charlene at the Cathay Pacific Lounge. We had some time to talk about things we've been doing. We talked about politics and I told him to run again because I know that public service is really in his heart. When we reached HK airport our flight was so delayed that when we stepped out of the plane we had very little time to say good bye. We had to rush to our connecting flights otherwise we would have been left behind. This selfie was a quick shot before saying goodbyes. @gomezjuliana @lucytgomez @agamuhlach317 @itsmecharleneg
