Matalino si Ping, bagay na Presidente.”

“Baka si Ping ang iboto ko.Pero tingnan muna natin ang mangyayari.”

“Siya ang nakikita ko na totoong may malasakit sa tao at  sa bansa natin.”

“Malakas noon si Lacson naghati lang sila ni FPJ ng boto kasi di nag-give way ang isa sa kanila.”

“Magiging history pag nag-win si Ping. Mahirap kasi sa mga presidentiables na tumakbo before ang manalo pag tumakbo ulit. As far as my knowledge is concern, ‘di pa nangyayari ‘yun sa ‘Pinas.”

Just recently, Sen. Ping Lacson's son Pampi celebrated his birthday and it was a memorable birthday for him because his son Thirdy (with Jodi Sta. Maria) and Mimi (Iwa Moto) were present and sung him a birthday song and even gave him a birthday cake.
