A wardrobe malfunction is the last thing a person needs in a formal occasion.
Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco, who had a missing button on his barong Tagalog during the state banquet for a visiting foreign leader, was lucky that his friend Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio was beside him.
The President’s daughter jumped the rescue of Velasco and provided a mini sewing kit so he could fix his missing button.
The lawmaker, who is being eyed as the next Speaker of the House of Representatives, used his emergency sewing skill while attending the state dinner hosted for Chinese President Xi Jinping. He shared an amusing video of the incident on his Instagram page.
