A recent amusing incident occurred at a social event attended by prominent political figures in the Philippines. While President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. (PBBM) was engrossed in conversation with House Speaker Martin Romualdez, an unusual event took place nearby. The First Lady, Liza Araneta-Marcos, took a wine glass belonging to Senate President Chiz Escudero. After taking a sip, the First Lady returned the glass to Escudero, much to his amusement. A video showed Escudero laughing as he received his glass back.

Following this incident, someone handed First Lady Liza a new wine glass, seemingly unconcerned about what had just transpired. She continued to mingle with the guests, demonstrating her lively and amiable nature at the gathering.

Currently, the video clip of this incident has gone viral on social media. At the time of writing this article, the hashtags “Chiz” with 2,315 posts, and “Senate President” with 11,700 posts are trending on X (formerly Twitter). Many have shared their reactions and opinions about the incident, which has brought joy and amusement to numerous netizens.

So far, there has been no official statement from Malacañang, First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos, or Senate President Chiz Escudero regarding the incident. It appears to be a light-hearted moment between the officials rather than a serious issue.

Chiz Escudero’s assumption of the Senate presidency in May 2024 is also significant news. He took office after the ousting of Senator Migz Zubiri. His appointment has been accompanied by various controversies and political issues, yet he continues to serve despite the challenges.

This incident serves as a reminder that even in the serious world of politics, there are still moments for light-hearted interactions. It highlights that the country’s leaders are also human, capable of laughter and enjoying their private moments.

As the news continues to circulate and become a topic of discussion, many await any statements from the concerned parties. Nevertheless, the incident has become a colorful part of the social media landscape, showcasing a softer side of well-known political figures in the Philippines.
