The wearing of uniforms by employees of the local government unit of San Carlos City in Negros Occidental, will be temporarily suspended today, in celebration of Valentine’s Day.
Instead, all officials, department heads, and employees are encouraged to wear the assigned color, according to their relationship status, while maintaining the professional look in reporting to the office, San Carlos City Mayor Renato Gustilo, said in his issued memorandum order.
The memorandum order states that those wearing red color signify they are taken or married; pink for those single and ready to mingle; green for those taken for granted; orange for those in a relationship, which they are not aware of; white for “who cares I’m awesome”; black for those who are bitter; blue for those who prefer to be “laon (unmarried)”; yellow for relationships without label; gray for those who loved, but were left behind; brown for the “pina asa”; purple for those belonging to the Pambansang Third Wheel; and rainbow for the “choosy.”
Mayor Raymund Tongson also ordered Himamaylan City officials and employees to wear their relationship status via a color coding scheme.
Meanwhile, Mayor Joedith Gallego did not only limit the color scheme to Silay City officials and employees, but also encouraged all Silaynons to join in the fun.
While there is no dress code for the reporting Capitol employees, Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday said that the provincial government is offering a “night of love and music,” free of charge, at the Provincial Capitol Lagoon.
Dubbed as “Pa Valentine’s sa Kapitolyo”, it will feature Limuel Llanes, a Viral and Tiktok Sensation, said Provincial Public Information Office chief Cha Cha Magallanes.*
