LOOK: Bee-da sa pagpapasaya: Duterte dines with OFW at Jollibee in Hong Kong
Like a typical Pinoy, President Rodrigo Duterte just couldn’t resist the lure of visiting a Jollibee outlet when he went to Hong Kong for a working visit.
Duterte on Friday (April 12) dined at the Jollibee branch on Connaught Road Central before his scheduled appearance before the Filipino community at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.
Photos released by Malacañang showed Duterte ordering at the counter and dining at the fast food chain’s outlet.
A Filipina worker, Alma Pardillo, even joined Duterte and his family for the meal.
According to the Palace, Duterte promised to provide Pardillo assistance for the treatment of her nine-year-old child, who is suffering from a lung ailment.
He also said he will shoulder the Filipina worker’s round trip airfare so she can fly to the Philippines to attend one of her children’s graduation and see her family.
Duterte was joined in his visit to Jollibee Hong Kong by partner Honeylet Avanceña, their daughter Veronica, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go.
The President is set to return to the country early Friday (April 13) after visiting China and Hong Kong from April 9 to 12.
