ChocNut, pan de sal for Leni’s guests on inauguration


Vice President-elect Leni Robredo’s favorite snack, ChocNut, and different kinds of pan de sal will be served on her inauguration at the Quezon City Executive House on June 30.

Georgina Hernandez, Robredo’s spokesperson, on Monday disclosed that guests will also enjoy sotanghon, maja blanca, pichi pichi and buchi.

“ChocNut is there because it is one of the favorite chocolates of Vice President-elect Robredo,” Hernandez told reporters.

“We will hold the inauguration in a small venue, so we are just expecting around 300 guests. There will be no VIPs because the Vice President- elect wants to ensure that the occasion will remain simple and close to the people—the farmers, fisherfolk, women, youth—those who helped her during the campaign,” she said.

Robredo’s camp invited the sisters of President Benigno Aquino 3rd–Ballsy, Pinky, Viel and Kris as well as family members of Robredo’s running mate Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd–to grace her inauguration.

Both camps are yet to confirm their attendance.

Kris contributed P100 million to Robredo’s campaign kitty.

“We think that the sisters might want to be with their brother who will be there for the inauguration of President-elect [Rodrigo] Duterte,” Hernandez said.

Robredo’s inauguration will start at 9 a.m. It is expected to last an hour. Her speech, written by Salve Duplito, is only 10-minutes long.

Duplito was the speechwriter of Robredo’s husband, good governance icon and former Secretary Jesse Robredo of the Department of Interior and Local Government.

Robredo will throw a thanksgiving party at 5 p.m. on June 30 at the Quezon Memorial Circle.

The President has been invited to the event.

“The thanksgiving party was organized by the volunteers who helped her during the campaign. We expect the artists who supported Vice President-elect Robredo to grace the party and perform for the rest of the supporters,” Hernandez said.

Aside from Kris, those who campaigned for Leni include actors John Arcilla, Dingdong Dantes, Enchong Dee, Angelica Panganiban, Marian Rivera-Dantes, Agot Isidro, Sharon Cuneta, Maricel Soriano and Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto; singers Cooky Chua, Meds Marfil, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Jim Paredes and Ebe Dancel; spoken word genius Juan Miguel Rivera Severo; and National Artist for Visual Arts Ben Cabrera.

  1. Garapal at bulok lang ang mga sasali sa inauguration ng isang pekeng bise presidente

  2. Aha. Yan pala ang mga artistang sumuporta sa pekeng Bise na yan. Ang bubulok ng mga utak. Sige enjoyin nyo yan at malapit na katapusan nyang si leni lugaw.

  3. naway ang tototng ibinoto ng mgata na VP ay makaupo na. pero COMELEC, nabura na ba ang mga data?

    ang lungkot naman– andaming namatay ara may demokrasya tayo lkatulad nila Bonifacio, Luna, maga sundalo sa WWII at mga guerilla, si Rizal at ibp. tapos, mga limang tao lang na naka aircon, at 2 mga dayuhan– ay kukunin sa atin ang demokraysyang binayaran ng dugo buhay at luha at hirap ng naiwang pamilya.

    kelan kay magbabayad ang mga 7 taong ito??? at paano nila babayaran ang priceless na demokrasya ng Plipinas???

  4. Kris contributing P100 million to Robredo? Unbelievable! It’s just a smokescreen to hide that government money was used as campaign fund for Robredo, that’s why the Liberal Party could not immediately submit the SOCE to COMELEC.

    Kris is passe now. Her movies are flopping, and many people are not anymore enamored with her. Even if she does something good for the Filipinos or community, she would still be criticized and people would be skeptical of her motives, just like what happened to Imelda Marcos.

  5. I love pan de sal — I am still looking for the BEST pan de sal products in Manila. Of course my taste will be different from the next guy’s. So who is the supplier of Ms Robredo’s pan de sal?

    I love Choc-Nut too and have been eating it for 50+ years. I buy it even in the Asian stores in he USA.
