Enrile reveals what he would like to give Miriam as Christmas gift
No, it’s not a mug.
Ernie Reyes of InterAksyon.com reports that before the Senate session began on Tuesday, December 3, reporters asked Senator Juan Ponce Enrile a seemingly lighthearted hypothethic question. They asked him what present he would like to get from Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago and what he would give her if they had an exchange of gifts.
This was Enrile’s answer: "Kung bibigyan ako ng regalo, tatanggapin ko lalo na kung rosas pandan. (Ngayon kung reregaluhan ko siya) bakasakali corned beef. 'Yun lang ang kaya ko corned beef, eh. Masarap naman 'yung corned beef 'di ba (If I am given a gift, I will accept it, especially is it is a rosas pandan. Now, if I were to give her something) it might be corned beef. That's all I can afford, corned beef. But corned beef is delicious, isn't it)?"
Enrile and Santiago have been at odds of late. Last week, Enrile slammed Santiago in a privilege speech. On Wednesday, December 4, Santiago is scheduled to retaliate against him in her own privilege speech.
