Sharon Garin gets Manny Pacquiao as waiting room buddy during ASEAN gala night
They’ve been waiting for hours just for the formalities to begin.
Boxing champ and bilyonaryo Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao and Aambis Owa Party-list Rep. Sharon Garin may be politiko icons by their own right, but there are bigger VIPs to attend to during Manila’s hosting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit.
The politikos were among the early birds for the gala dinner for heads of state and dialogue partners from all over the world, as they had to be ready and waiting by 5:30 p.m. ahead of the VIPs. The catch: the program and dinner will start by 8 p.m.
It was a rather long wait, but thankfully they had each other to chat with in order to pass the time.
