NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Move over Greta Thunberg. Your three minutes of fame are over.
Enter Bimby Aquino-Yap, 12-year-old son of Philippine Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, often referred to by some circles as a tiger mom.
Bimby has been invited to speak before a U.N. Assembly of tiger moms to be held next month in New York City.
Originally, the assembly wanted to invite Kris as speaker but after seeing the extensive media coverage Thunberg received after that angry, passionate speech on climate change, it opted to invite Bimby instead.
An assembly spokesperson said that Bimby is not only younger (he’s 12, Thunberg is 16), but also more good looking adorable than the Swedish activist. “He’also the perfect person to talk about how it is to grow up with a tiger mom “ he said.
Loosely, a tiger mom is one who treats her children like she was a general in the army, dictating how her children should behave, what career to pursue (like piano lessons), and how to present themselves before the public eye.
