MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippines Vice President Leni Robredo today said she was honored and humbled that President Rodrigo Duterte suggested that the Weather Bureau give typhoons simpler and easier-to-remember names.
Duterte seemed displeased at the name given to the latest typhoon that hit the Philippines – Usman.
Among the names Duterte suggested were Bernadette, Leonora and Leni.
”I thank the President that despite our political and ideological differences, he still thinks highly of me and is even recommending that one of the future typhoons be named after me,” Robredo told The Adobo Chronicles.
”I hope that the Weather Bureau picks a super typhoon to name after me, for greater impact and worldwide exposure.”
