President Rodrigo Duterte has chosen his frequent regulation spouse, Cielito “Honeylet” Avanceña, as the “official hostess” who will attend to the spouses of heads of state who will likely be coming to the Philippines for the ASEAN Summit this week.
ASEAN 2017 National Organizing Council Director-General Ambassador Marciano Paynor Jr. stated on Monday (April 24) that Avanceña will tour the spouses across the Metropolitan Museum. She may also host them for lunch.
