Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno has a piece of advice to the new graduates of MAPUA University.
Moreno who’s a guest speaker during the 10th commencement exercises of the said university told the graduates not to rush on having family and help themselves first.
According to him, life is so hard right now and all the daily needs for a newborn baby is expensive so they need to think twice first before searching for a partner and have a family.
“Huwag muna kayong magmamadali, iraos ninyo muna ang inyong sarili… pag panatag na kayo at nakapag subi na kayo, naihanda niyo na ang sarili niyo saka palang kayo mag isip [na mag asawa],” Moreno said.
“Ngayon wag kayong mag isip, talagang h’wag mong isipin dahil sa hirap ng buhay ngayon… mahal ang gatas diaper yan ang alam ko sa pag ibig,” he added.
The Mayor urged the graduates to enjoy their life as single and use the opportunity to have a good future.

He said that he doesn’t have any girlfriends during his younger days because of his mom.
“Do you believe wala akong syota noong araw? Hindi kapani paniwala no? But that is true, my mom was right, ‘ah tama yung nanay mo eh, ang landi landi mo. Kere-kerengkeng ka diyan, pag nakita kitang nanligaw ligaw e hihilahin ko yung buhok ng babae sa harapan ng bahay niya para magkahiyaan na,” Moreno said quoting his mother.
“‘Mama wag mo namang gawin iyon nakakahiya, ang nakakahiya ay yung kapag wala kang mapalamon kapag nabuntis mo yan,” he added.
He narrated that he saw some of his childhood friends suffer after they had a family without getting ready.
“What if hindi ko pinakingan ang magulang ko?” he said.
