It’s already challenging enough to try to live as close to a normal life as possible amidst a pandemic, even more so when allegations of corruption plague a government institution that’s supposed to be at the forefront of helping solve a health crisis.

Seeing the controversy unfold through news reports broke Chantrelle Rullan Gacho’s heart as a Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) member for nine years and counting. “I was in tears,” she told MB Life. “Sobra po. ‘Di ako makapaniwala.”

That’s why as she celebrated her birthday today, Chantrelle thought of trying something different for her cake—a woke dedication.

In a Facebook post, she shared a photo of her minimalist chocolate cake with the words, “Don’t look for love, look for the missing PhilHealth funds.”

So, alam nyo na kung ano hinahanap ko ha. 😘

The quote started out as a response to questions about marriage. Chantrelle, however, felt that no issue is more pressing than what’s happening at PhilHealth, not even her plans to settle down.

“I want to highlight this on my birthday because I want to remind others that what’s happening now with this agency is unacceptable,” she explained. “Knowing that people will greet me today on Facebook, I thought the cake can help bring light to the issue, especially for those who still have no idea about it, and for it to be a turning point for them to look it up, too, at maging mapagmasid.”
