To ensure its workforce stays connected and healthy amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Speaker Lord Allan Jay Velasco, held an online cooking demonstration on Friday entitled: “M&M COOKING DEMO, Pagkaing Masarap na, Mura pa!”. The cooking demo was part of a series of activities for the annual HRep Month celebration. The activity was sponsored by the Office-of-the Sergeant-at Arms (OSAA) and the Legislative Security Bureau (LSB) led by Sergeant At Arms, retired Police Maj. Gen. Mao Aplasca. Members of the LSB, who took the role of “chefs” themselves, cooked different recipes of meat, seafood, noodles as well as of dessert. This elicited delight and appreciation from the almost 200 HRep officials and employees who watched the event online. House Deputy Secretary General Dr. Ramon Ricardo Roque of the Administrative Department led the viewers. In his remarks, Aplasca stressed the importance of staying connected with each other while practicing social distancing during the pandemic to maintain physical and mental wellness.
