Palace reporters get ‘Chiz gift’
MANILA, Philippines — A small group of Malacañang reporters received an unexpected Valentine’s gift, purportedly from Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero.
A small block of cheese wrapped in red paper came with a note that read: “Maligayang Araw ng mga Puso. Ilang buwan na lang, ang keso na inyong nagging katuwang ay tuluyan ninyong makakasama sa Malacañang [Happy Valentines Day. In a few months, the cheese that has been your partner will be with you in Malacañang].”
The card was signed, “Senator Chiz Escudero.”
“Cheez sa 2010” was written on the gift box.
The neophyte senator is among those reportedly eyeing the presidency in 2010.
In 2007, after the mid-term elections, Palace reporters received a mug, purportedly from Senator Manuel Villar, with the message that they would soon have coffee with him at the Palace.
