Israeli Ambassador Rafael Harpaz on Monday, August 5, paid a courtesy call on Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso.

Ambassador Harpaz told the Mayor, “there is a saying in Tagalog, ‘dahan-dahan.’ But you are ‘bilis-bilis.’”

In response, the Mayor said “I can not afford to rest and (to be) slow… so that everybody must follow.”
