Alfred Vargas shares a peek into his work from home situation

Alfred Vargas admits the work from home setup gets more tiring than actual office work.

The actor turned Quezon City congressman gave a sneak peek into his home office, poking fun at his semi-formal attire –– that is, formal with his top but casual pambahay for his shorts and slippers. He’s also sporting long hair, having avoided to head out even if barber shops are back in limited service.

“My urge to be continuously productive despite the situation for more than three months now found refuge in this makeshift office I set up in one of the rooms in the house… Acceptable internet and good enough mobile phone signal are a must,” the politiko said, lamenting how demanding this scenario was.

“Unexpectedly, the number of meetings being conducted everyday (online) is a lot bigger than before when meetings were held face to face. Mas maraming meetings this time so mas busy pa ang schedule everyday. Dirediretso ang committee meetings ng House of Representatives even if we are on recess,” Vargas added, taking refuge in hearing birds and his kids playing outside the room as he is caught in his workload.

New Normal Mondays. Pardon the shorts. My urge to be continuously productive despite the situation for more than three months now found refuge in this makeshift office I set up in one of the rooms in the house. This is the same room I spent my 14-day self-imposed quarantine when ECQ started. Acceptable internet and good enough mobile phone signal are a must. Unexpectedly, the number of meetings being conducted everyday (online) is a lot bigger than before when meetings were held face to face. Mas maraming meetings this time so mas busy pa ang schedule everyday. Dirediretso ang committee meetings ng House of Representatives even if we are on recess. It helps that I can hear the birds singing outside the window and the voices of my children playing just outside the room while working. This place also serves as my control center in monitoring District 5, Quezon City, 24/7. So far, for more than 100 days already, our relief and assistance efforts have been continuous and consistent. But there’s still a lot of work to be done, more problems to address, more people to help. I don’t think this pandemic will be over soon. We need all the help we can get. “Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous; teach me to serve you as you deserve; To give and not to count the cost; To fight and not to heed the wounds; To toil and not to seek for rest; to labour and not to ask for reward…” – St. Ignatius of Loyola #QClabanCOVID #bayanihanQC #iloveNOVA #workworkwork #newnormal
