Shutterbug: Check out Ben Evardone’s power selfies during ADB party


He got this close to President Rodrigo Duterte.

Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone clearly had a fun time at the 50th anniversary reception of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Apart from getting in his suit to hang out with fellow lawmakers in the gala event, the politiko again scored a photo with Duterte.

He also got to stand beside a rather shy ADB President Takehiko Nakao, with Evardone nearly blocking him out of the frame. It’s an A+ crowd, alright!
