Mayor Vico Sotto trends on Twitter after appearing in the latest YouTube vlog of actress-host Alex Gonzaga.

The concept was "A Day With Mayor Vico," which entailed a tour around the city hall with him.

And one thing the actress-host noticed: There was not a single tarpaulin or publicity material promoting himself and his government projects.

She told him, “Mayor, napansin ko konti lang picture mo dito. Hindi ka pa madalas mag-picture dito.'

Giving him a plate of biko, Alex said, "Ito na lang ilagay mo," and added in jest, "At least hindi mukha mo.”

Mayor Vico explained after thanking Alex, "Hindi ako mahilig sa mga picture ko. Saka kapag project ng LGU, bawal maglagay iyong malaking pangalan ko.

"Bawal iyon kasi pera ng taumbayan iyon, e. Bakit ko paglalagyan ng pangalan ko?"

"Ang ibig ko lang sabihin, wala tayo utang na loob sa mga pulitiko.

"Puwede tayo magpasalamat kasi maganda iyong proyekto mo, maganda iyong programa, pero wala tayong utang na loob. Iba iyon, e."

He said at the assembly that people do not owe a debt of gratitude to the politicians since local government unit projects are funded by their taxes.

His tweet read: "Laging tandaan na wala kayong utang na loob kahit kanino (lalo na sa politiko) dahil pera ito ng taumbayan.

"Na-a-appreciate ko naman kapag may nagpapasalamat sa kin pero naiilang ako dahil di ko pera to."
