  • May nag-akala bang ang dating “Sick Man of Asia,” sa loob ng 3 taon ng tapat na pamamahala ay nasa investment grade status na?” #SONA2013
  • Aquino: Who would've thought the 'sick man of Asia' would reach investment grade status in 4 years of good governance? #SONA2013
  • Sa bawat Pilipinong nagtitiwala sa kapangyarihan ng maliliit na anyo ng kabutihan, kayo nga po ang gumawa ng pagbabago. #SONA2013 ninyo ito.
  • Aquino: May puwang pa ba para sa mga agam-agam? Ngayon pa bang natutupad  na  ang mga dating ni hindi natin  magawang  pangarapin.

  • Aquino: Sinabi  po  sa  akin  dati:  Noynoy,  simulan  mo  lang.  Sinimulan nga  po  natin,  at  ngayon,  kitang-kita  na  ang  layo  ng  ating  narating. 

    Ngayon,  Pilipino,  ituloy  natin  ang  pagkakapit-bisig,  sabay  nating  arugain, pabilisin, at palawakin ang transpormasyon ng lipunan. Ako po si  Noynoy  Aquino;  ipinagmamalaki  ko  sa  buong  mundo:  Pilipino  ako. 

    Napakasarap maging Pilipino sa panahong ito.

  • The Conditional Cash Transfer program will get renewed funding in 2014. What are your thoughts on the effectivity of the program and the Aquino administration's expansion of the program?

  • Education is a top priority of any administration. The Aquino administration seems focused on ending the classroom and teacher shortage by 2016 or earlier. What else must President Aquino do to improve our country's education system?

  • Agriculture and land reform go hand in hand in reducing social inequality as well as in securing our food supply for the future. Share your ideas on the President's agenda to increase productivity and look after the welfare of farmers.

  • The Aquino administration likes to highlight the economic gains made in just 3 years. Are we truly on the way to sustainable growth or are we just as vulnerable today as we were during the credit and financial crises?

  • The current's health care system, although functioning, is still sorely lacking in terms of delivery and ease of access for the poor. Given its complexity as an issue, what should PNoy focus on?

  • The President sent a clear message to erring agencies, corruption and poor performance will not be tolerated under his watch. But can he truly stir good governance reforms through to completion before his term ends?

  • And that's the President's SONA 2013. So, Tanya and Sixdon, what are your quick thoughts?

  • What PNoy didn't mention in #SONA 2013: mining, FOI, China, job generation, extra-judicial killings.
  • Before we go, I'd like to ask Tanya and Dodo to say some final words on this year's SONA and what we - the media and civil society - need to watch out for in the coming months, particularly with the 2014 budget and the last 3 years of the PNoy administration?
