“I talked to my whole council, the whole barangay, pati tanod, lupon, kagawad[including the watchmen, arbiters, council members], c’mon we have to help. We have to help so for a week, 5 o’clock we start waking up,” they Brgy. Captain explained.
While enforcing traffic, San Miguel wears a safety vest and a whistle like other traffic enforcers. However, what makes her stand out is that she does her job without losing her fashion style.
San Miguel directs traffic while wearing heels and colorful outfits. After doing her work on the streets, she goes straight to the barangay hall to fulfill her other responsibilities.
“From here, I go straight to the office and I have to meet other people. Diretso na makeup ko, lipstick ko (With my makeup and lipstick on). And then I just, you know, do some cleaning up in the barangay and then start working again,” she said.
Due to her extra effort in making her barangay more orderly, the Barangay Captain has earned the praises of both motorists and also the Department of Public Order and Safety in Quezon City.
