But he is not anymore a sikyu when he grew rich.
If there is a real rich sikyu, that would be Mikey Arroyo. Arroyo is a millionaire owning real properties in the United States, a presidential son, a congressman, and an amnesiac for forgetting to declare the real worth of his assets and campaign contributions. The Commission on Elections declared him a representative of Ang Galing Pinoy -- the party-list of security guards.
But many are alarmed including leftist organizations. Papaano daw ba naging sikyu si Mikey eh ang yaman-yaman niya nga at congressman pa siya? Hmmnnn.... Oo nga no?
Pero teka, me kailangan pa bang ipagtaka? Ang nanay niya nga Presidente ng Pilipinas tapos ngayon Congressman lang ng Pampanga? At least si Vladimir Putin Prime Minister ng Russia pagkatapos na maging Presidente. At close-in adviser pa ng kanyang kapalit na si President Medvedev, di ba? So, ladies and gentlemen, wag na tayong magtaka. Like mother, like son.
