I should have been informed! -Christopher Lao
Below is a transcript of the informal interview of GMA’s reporter Jun Veneracion with Christopher Lao:
Lao: I think this a problem with the traffic enforcers as well, for example the MMDA, because they should have already blocked the road.
Veneracion: Hindi mo ba alam na ganun ka siyang malalim?
Lao: Wala! Kasi tingnan mo oh, who will tell me, who will tell me? Really? Did you guys even tell me?
Veneracion: Ah well, nandito kami [sa kabila ng baha]…
Lao: Oh yun, sino ba yung mga nandoon?
Veneracion: …na-surprise nga kami… [unintelligible]
Lao: Eh sino yung mga nandoon sa side na yun? Did, did anyone tell—Wala! Nobody even stopped! Nobody informed! It’s like, people were waiting for someone to just do that.
Veneracion: Pero hindi mo ba na-realize na malalim?
Lao: Why do you info—why do i—Bakit ako? Diba? (laughs ironically) Dapat i-inform, i-inform, I should have been informed, yun lang yun.
Lao’s newfound online infamy has also pushed people online to uncover details about his personal life. Christopher Lao is reportedly a Summa cum Laude graduate of BA Philosophy from UP, with an average of 1.169. Reports also indicate he is now studying law at the State University.
