Unforgettable celeb-Russian! Sonny Belmonte treats lawmakers to steak, caviar in Moscow birthday bash
Former House Speaker Sonny Belmonte may no longer be a lawmaker, but he continues to be held in high regard by his colleagues in politics.
Part of the reason why Belmonte is well loved is his generosity, which he showed once again when he joined President Rodrigo Duterte’s trip to Russia.
Belmonte treated a number of lawmakers to sumptuous meals at a restaurant to mark his 83rd birthday.
A source said the politikos feasted on top grade steak, while an Instagram post by Eastern Samar Governor Ben Evardone showed they also ate caviar.
“When in Moscow, caviar it is. Thank you 83rd birthday celebrant former Speaker Belmonte,” Evardone captioned his post.
A photo obtained by Politiko showed the following lawmakers were present at Belmonte’s birthday treat: House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez, House Minority Leader Benny Abante, Deputy Speakers Luis Raymund “LRay” Villafuerte and Henry Oaminal and Cavite Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino.
House Deputy Secretary General Brian Yamsuan, a ranking official of the National Unity Party, also partied with the lawmakers.
