MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Beleaguered Senator Leila de Lima found herself getting friendly advice from female colleagues in the Senate as she continues to be hounded by controversies regarding her alleged links with drug lords inside the New Bilibid Prison.
According to the Inquirer, De Lima was recently overheard having girl talk with Senators Loren Legarda and Nancy Binay at the session floor.
Legarda gave De Lima some fashion tips. She noted that De Lima, who was clad in black, looked like she had just gone to a funeral.
Binay agreed. “Wear happy colors!” she told De Lima.
As an example of colorful wardrobe, Legarda and Binay showed their photos of past red carpet ceremonies (before President Duterte scrapped it) during the presidential state of the nation address.
“And drop that scarf,” both senators told De Lima.
