Walang butones? No problem! Marinduque Rep. Velasco’s sewing skills get tested
Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco’s sewing skills were put to test during the state visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Velasco shared that one of the buttons of his barong was removed so he was covering it the whole time.
“So, dunno kung tumaba ako kaya natanggal ang butones ng barong ko during the State dinner para kay President Xi Jinping or talagang marupok na yung pagkakatahi nung butones,” Velasco shared.
“So the whole night before the start ng dinner while going around, nakahawak lang ako sa tiyan ko sa hiya kasi wala ang isang butones,” he added.
Good thing Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte is always prepared, said Velasco.
“Good thing nung nagsit down na, katabi ko si Mayor Inday at napansin niya kaya she asked me if gusto ko daw ng safety pin or pantahi.. so sabi ko, Mam pantahi na lang at ako na magtahi,” the solon said.
“So ayan… history in the making, nagtahi po ang inyong lingkod ng butones ng barong ko sa table namin during the State dinner of Chinese President Xi Jinping in Malacanang!!,” he said.
Velasco lauded himself for sewing his barong on the spot as he thanks Inday Sara for the help.
“A job well done if i do say so myself!! Thank you again Mayor Inday for always being prepared hehehe,” he said.
