Senior Associate Justice Estela M. Perlas-Bernabe expresses her gratitude to her colleagues, Court officials and employees as she bids them farewell in her final Supreme Court Summer Session in Baguio City as a Member of the Court.
“I don’t want to say farewell kasi di ba, pag farewell parang malungkot? So instead, I just want to say, ‘thank you and see you again,’” says SAJ Perlas-Bernabe. She adds: “Now hopefully I can still get to visit you and see you as a guest of the Court. But for now, I want to tell you that I really appreciate everything you did for me and for the Court. Talagang naging parte kayo ng aking journey bilang Magistrate ng Supreme Court. So, thank you for eleven years of gracious hospitality and warm camaraderie. Mabuhay tayong lahat!” SAJ Perlas-Bernabe retires from government service on May 13. (Courtesy of the SC Public Information Office)
