MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The fate of Cha Cha in the Philippine Senate is grim, to say the least, as majority of sitting Senators are going for Rigodon instead.
Cha Cha is, of course, the proposed charter change which the House of Representatives overwhelming supports but is doomed without Senate approval. It is also a well-loved dance that has survived many generations and is a favorite in many a ballroom dancing.
Rigodon (de Honor) is a Filipino indigenous dance where participants constantly change partners — just like Senators who keep changing their minds, their affiliations, their stance on the issue of amending the 1987 Constitution.
In the Rigodon dance, participants also march back and forth and go in circles, just like what members of the Upper Chamber are known for.
So dear readers, which dance do you prefer? Cha Cha or Rigodon?
