Philippine Politics: Can’t Answer Questions? Just Dance!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Who can forget that awkward interview by television news anchor Karen Davila with senatorial candidate and movie actress Alma Moreno, when, faced by tough questioning, said “do I need to answer the question?”

Well, all that is now behind Moreno, incumbent city councilor of Parañaque.

She doesn’t give interviews any more.  She doesn’t even give campaign speeches.  She would just dance the night away and try to look cute in front of her party’s presidential candidate Vice President Jejomar Binay, and fellow senatorial candidate, boxer Manny Pacquiao.

Good campaign advisers, she must have!

Here’s the dance video, courtesy of Rappler:

Senatorial Candidate Actress Alma Moreno Consoles Manny Pacquiao: No Worries, There’s Still Advan Shoes

imagePARAÑAQUE, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – BFF: Best Friends Forever. Parañaque City Councilor, former film actress and candidate for Philippine senator Alma Moreno took to her Twitter account today to console her friend and party-mate Manny Pacquiao after the latter was dropped by Nike from its product endorsement contract with the Filipino champion boxer.

Nike severed its relationship with the boxer and senatorial candidate after he made disparaging comments about gay men and women, comparing them to (worse than) animals.

Moreno and Pacquiao are in the same senatorial slate of Vice President (and candidate for president) Jejomar Binay’s United Nationalist Alliance (UNA). All three are against legalizing samne-sex marriage.

In her Twitter account, Moreno told Pacquiao: “okay lang yan pareng @mannypacquiao, may Advan shoes pa naman” (That’s okay, friend @mannypacquiao, there’s still Advan shoes).

Advan shoes is a brand of Philippine-made sneakers.

It wasn’t clear whether or not Pacquiao was pleased or consoled by Moreno’s comment.
