MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Opposition Senator Franklin Drilon is not stopping with his criticism of government expenses in connection with the Philippines’ hosting of the South East Asian Games.
Drilon had earlier criticized the P50 Million cauldron that has been built as part of the SEA Games ceremonies.
Today, the Senator unveiled his personal design for the SEA Games medals that will be awarded during the international sports events. He says the design is not only cheap but also represents a Philippine indigenous product — that of the world-famous woodcarving of spoon and fork which is a typical wall decor found in many traditional Filipino homes.
What a nationalisic Senator. And frugal.
