MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – It was yet another celebrity wedding, this time between Philippines Senator Chiz Escudero and actress Heart Evangelista.  President NoyNoy Aquino was the Best Man.  But he was a no-show! Escudero’s brother, Phillip, stood in for the president.

Just recently, Aquino was severely criticized for being a no-show at the arrival ceremonies for the 44 police officers who were slain in an encounter with rebel forces in the southern island of Mindanao.  Instead, Aquino was attending the inauguration of a new car mafucturing plant just south of the capital. The presidential palace explained to the media that the arrival ceremonies was not on the president’s schedule.

In an interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said that Escudero’s wedding held February 15 in the province of Quezon was not on Aquino’s schedule either, and he blamed the president’s appointments secretary for failing to include it in the presidential calendar.

Of course, it’s always someone else’s fault, but at least the presidential palace is consistent with its responses to criticism regarding the whereabouts of the president.  It has created a popular tagline on social media – #NasaanAngPangulo (Where is the President).
