Lucy Torres’ Kalachuchi a scene-stealer during Ormoc airport launch

Lucy and Richard, Ormoc Airport reopening

It’s the perfect accessory on a sunny day.

Ormoc Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez and husband Mayor Richard Gomez welcomed President Rodrigo Duterte to their city, who personally flew in just to open the new passenger terminal building for the Ormoc airport.

The Gomezes wore matching Filipiniana wear in hues of beige and blue. For Lucy, she jazzed up her simple blouse and blue skirt with a huge kalachuchi ornament on her hair, which is her newest brand of jewelry and accessories.


Asia’s Most Stylish Lucy Torres-Gomez On Leading A Charmed Life

Asia's Most Stylish Lucy Torres-Gomez On Leading A Charmed Life
By MJ Jose

Beauty, brains, a good heart, and a loving family—this television personality, politician, and the Philippine Tatler’s choice for Asia’s Most Stylish certainly has it all
Joining the glamourous world of show business was never a dream for Representative Lucy Torres- Gomez; neither was entering the political arena.

“My dreams have always been very simple: to be a good wife and mother, and to build a happy home for my family,” she says with affection. But fate seemed to have surprises aplenty—and none of the unkind variety—in store for this television personality turned public servant, whose genteel manner and kind words truly amplify her beauty.

As a young girl, she never thought to shape her future around a specific plan (“I liken the circumstances of my life to the idea of jumping off a plane and just reading the manual on the way down!”), but pictured a quiet life for herself, one away from any sort of spotlight. Then, she met and married the man of her dreams—one who was very much in the public eye—and everything changed.


Smooth sailing for Lucy’s boat project

ALBUERA, Leyte, Philippines – Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez’s fishing boat project received another boost with donations from Japanese shipping company Kawazaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd. (K-Line), through the Rayomar Foundation and the San Miguel Brewery (SMB).

Dubbed 6,200: Mission Possible, the project aims to provide fishing boats to each of the 6,200 fishermen in her congressional district whose livelihood was affected by Super Typhoon Yolanda.

Gomez led the distribution of 102 boats in this coastal town in simple ceremonies held at its baywalk on Feb. 6.

Rayomar Foundation representatives led by its president Maria Ana Zubiri and vice president for project development Jacqueline Fedalizo attended the turnover ceremony. K-Line donated 60 boats.

National business affairs and communications manager Emily Dumalag, who headed the SMB delegation, said they distributed the remaining 28 of the 100 boats that they donated. Continue reading

BEN Chan, Rep. Lucy Torres, Richard Gomez

Because she represents in Congress disaster-prone Ormoc City in Leyte, Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez has witnessed the worst and last year’s horrific Supertyphoon “Yolanda” was no exception. It left thousands of Ormoc’s fishermen and farmers displaced.

Since most of the attention went to ravaged Tacloban City, our gorgeous palangga with a golden heart took it upon herself to start a program for her own congressional district, “6200: Mission Possible,” a campaign to provide each and every one of the 6,200 registered fisherman in her district with his own fiberglass banca through soliciting donations from the private sector and public organizations.

Ben Chan of Bench has had Lucy and hubby Richard Gomez as endorsers for years of the top fashion house, so he pledged an amount enough for 200 boats while helping to provide publicity for the project. The donation was likewise jump-started when Bench employees gallantly offered to forego their 2013 Christmas party and give the savings to the project.
