Ben Chan fanboys over Duterte during Berna Puyat’s oath-taking
It was the high point of this new Secretary’s life.
Tycoon Ben Chan of the Bench clothing line was among the lucky few invited to witness the oath-taking of new Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat last Sunday, May 13.
Chan got to set foot inside the Malaca?ang Palace to witness his dear friend commit to her new post in government, following her stint as Agriculture Undersecretary.
Chan even asked for an autograph and a photo from Duterte, just before they left for a celebratory dinner. It also happened to be Puyat’s birthday that day.
Non stop laughter at this birthday dinner hosted by @bcbench and @migspastor which we had planned a week ago? How serendipitous that I get to sit beside the very person that I wanted to talk to ……Cong @lucytgomez who happens to be the Chairperson of the Tourism Committee? But I enjoyed listening more to the love life of @arnold_vegafria ? belated happy birthday to @verlim1234 ? With @richardgomezinstagram @antonsd @nenitachanlim and @monsromulo #aboutlastnight
