Sinong dugyot? President Duterte looking crisp and sharp in his suit at ASEAN meet

President Rodrigo Duterte looked so crisp and sharp on his first day at the 35th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit.

In a photo shared by the Presidential Photographers Division, President Duterte was wearing an electric blue suit and a properly tied necktie.

The Chief Executive attended the ASEAN Summit plenary session and the signing ceremony of the memorandum of understanding between the ASEAN and the Fédération Internationale de Football Association on November 2, 2019.

Last month, the President was criticized for reportedly appearing a "bit unkempt" during his meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow.

"Rodrigo #Duterte showed up a bit unkempt for the meeting with the Russian PM Medvedev in Moscow and the Russian internet is having a blast: "Did he drink all night?",

 "Did he just leave the pub?", "Do Filipinos know what a (state visit) protocol is?" people ask," Czech journalist Pavel Vondra said

Malacanang came to the rescue and explained that the President loosened his tie because he felt suffocated.

“President Duterte does not look unkempt. What those kibitzers referred to was the way he wore his tie. He loosened it up. He feels suffocated and uncomfortable if the tie is tightly in place in the collar,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a statement last month.
