MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Be careful what you wish for.
Moments after Pinoy Ako Blog’s Jover Laurio tweeted that Tatay (President Rodrigo Duterte) wasn’t included in PeopleAsia magazine’s 2020-21 “People of the Year” list because he would be under the “Animal of the Year” category, she received a surprising word from the international Safari magazine.
Laurio was named the magazine’s “Animal of the Year,” besting dozens of animals in the shortlist, and sharing the honor with the hippopotamus.
It was a dream come true for Laurio, who after being once named “Person of the Year” by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, had been aspiring year after year to be honored by an international magazine, just like her idol Maria Ressa.
Congratulations to PAB!
