Director Quark Henares remains optimistic that the country is still capable of achieving greatness despite consistently lagging behind its neighboring countries in the region.
"It can only get better. Whether it's Villar, Aquino or Gibo or whoever, basta 'wag lang si Erap," Quark candidly told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) after casting his vote earlier today, May 10, inside Dasmariñas Village in Makati City.
Quark arrived at the village clubhouse-turned-polling precinct at mid-afternoon together with his sister Cristalle and their father, businessman Atom Henares. Their mother, cosmetic doctor Vicki Belo, according to Quark, is registered in another city, that's why she was not with them.
The young director (Keka, Gamitan, Super Noypi) does not share the doubts expressed by some people concerning the competence of the PCOS (Precinct Count Optical Scan) machines in accurately tallying the votes.
"Galing!" said Quark about the machine. "Parang ito 'yong pinaka-confident ako na mabibilang talaga 'yong vote ko. Meron ding doubts siyempre pero mas nagda-doubt ako sa manual procedures."
Prior to Quark and his family's arrival, the Gutierrez family of talent manager Annabelle Rama reportedly cast their votes in the same precinct.
There were no reports of any untoward election-related incident in Dasmariñas Village. The turnout of voters there was noticeably peaceful and organized.
