GMA spokesman's advice to Noynoy Aquino: "Pick cute Cabinet members"
GMANews.TV reports that deputy presidential spokesman Rogelio Peyuan gave an interesting piece of advice to leading presidentiable Senator Noynoy Aquino during a press briefing in Malacañang yesterday, May 18.
Addressing Aquino, Peyuan stated: "Ang importante siguro–huwag naman magagalit kung tayo ay magmumungkahi na muli–mamili ng medyo cute na mga makakasama sa kapaligiran (It's important–and I hope this advice isn't taken the wrong way–that [Aquino] pick [people who are kind of] cute to be around him."
GMANews.TV noted that Peyuan also said that "aside from being cute, those to be picked as Cabinet members should be young, always smiling, and smell good."
Peyuan said this was because "the President's judgment could depend on the first people he or she meets in the morning."
The report contained Peyuan's exact words: "Dapat maganda ang sense of judgment nito kung saan dapat akayin ang kabuuan ng bansa. Ito'y magiging depende sa kanyang matatanaw pagdilat ng kanyang mata at depende rin sa amoy hininga ng makakausap niya (The president should have a good sense of judgment, and that could depend on the first people he or she sees in the morning)."
