Isumbong mo kay Tulfo! Teo brings makeup artist, aides to overseas junkets
The makeup assistant of Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo and several rank and file employees of her agency got the chance to tour the world thanks to her, The Philippine Star has reported.
Based on the documents obtained by The Star, makeup artist Angelito Ucol joined Teo in her overseas trips in 2016 and 2017.
The Tourism Secretary’s assistant, Marinela Miranda, was also her frequent companion.
Teo visited several countries in her two years as head of the Department of Tourism, among them Dubai, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan and Canada.
Interestingly, some members of Tulfo’s entourage in her overseas trips had rank and file positions so their presence did not seem to be essential to her official business.
For instance, Tulfo gave travel orders to a utility worker and clerk for her trip to Dubai.
Two drivers of Tourism Assistant Secretary Arlene Mancao experienced riding the posh Star Cruises courtesy of Teo.
Several utility workers, clerks and members of composite teams within the DOT were also given travel orders to accompany Teo in her various overseas junkets.
Teo is the sister of brothers Erwin, Ramon and Ben Tulfo.
