In recognition of her support to the welfare of women, she recently received an award from the Police Regional Office-4-A at Camp Vicente in Calamba City. The “Outstanding Woman of the Month” award acknowledges her support to women.

For the entire Women’s Month, BM Alarva was a consistent guest in different municipalities of Laguna. She put up several job fairs billed as “Trabahong Pangkakabaihan Sagot sa Kahirapan” in coordination with Hitachi.

She also graced the celebration of Women’s Month in Silang, Cavite and launched a medical-dental program in Alaminos, Laguna together with Gov. ER Ejercito.

A devout Catholic, BM Angelica together with Fr. Ampil, led the ribbon-cutting rites of Alihan Church where they tackled the controversial RH Bill with the theme, “Women Deserve Better Than Abortion.”

BM Alarva was among the solons who supported the PRO-LIFE rally of Rep. Roilo Golez at the San Pablo Gym together with Bishop Leo Adorna.

As an entertainment figure, BM Alarva delighted her constituents in Liliw and Pagsanjan when she brought the elderly to Willy Revillame’s former TV5 program, “Willing-Willie.” She was among the jurors at the Mr. and Ms. Laguna University, a guest speaker at Alaminos High School. She also graced the SK Coronation Night during the “Araw ng Kabataan” affair and supported the “Dance Kabataan Contests.”

During these stints, she discovered the hidden talents of Laguna’s youth. At the town fiesta of Masapang, Victoria, BM Alarva with Councilor Gali Galicia, invited showbiz personalities Jannelle Jamer, Aileen Papin and comedians to entertain her constituents. At the fiesta of Barangay Malamig in San Pablo, she invited Lance Raymundo, Ate Shawie and Marius.
