Rex Gatchalian may have found distant relatives thanks to this catch-up session with a fellow politiko from Bulacan.

The Valenzuela mayor recently shared the stage with his namesake, Mayor Bebong Gatchalian of Malolos, and learned that they shared many things in common.

“Valenzuela used to be part of Bulacan (the home province of Malolos). My dad tells me his ancestors settled in Malolos muna before he moved to Obando,” the politiko said.

“Mayor Bebong of Malolos and I not only share the same surname – Gatchalian same age pala kami .kaya kanina we spoke about how we can further enrich the partnership of the two cities whom we work for through a sister-city agreement,” he added.

How’s that for paying homage to his dad’s heritage?
