Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. is a certified vlogger.
Revilla has grown fond of going live on Facebook and used the video platform to share his experience at this year’s State of the Nation Address (SONA). The senator is among the few politikos invited to the President’s address at the Batasan Pambansa in Quezon City on July 27.
In a Facebook post, Revilla gave the public a behind-the-scenes video from the House of Representatives session hall while waiting for the President.
The six-minute video clip shows several lawmakers and Cabinet members invited to the event and distancing rule enforced as a precaution to the new coronavirus disease. The SONA guests were seen seated far apart with alcohol placed on every desk.
“Personal po nating nasaksihan ang pag-uulat sa bayan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa Batasang Pambansa ngayong araw,” Revilla said.
“Medyo nakakapanibago man kumpara sa mga dating State of the Nation Address na ating nadaluhan sa mga nagdaang taon, maayos na naipatupad ang minimum health standards sa lahat ng mga opisyal ng pamahalaan at piling piling panauhin kanina sa House of Representatives,” he said.
Revilla introduced some politikos, including Senators Bato dela Rosa and Pia Cayetano, House Majority leader Martin Romualdez, and Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, in his Facebook video.
He said they were also given new masks as part of the health measures.
“Naging vlogger na talaga eko,” Revilla quipped.
