Quotes of the Week: Juan Ponce Enrile on retirement, Sharon Cuneta on losing weight + more
The city's most interesting sound bites.
(SPOT.ph) President-elect Rodrigo Duterte is still at odds with the media, so he's been noticeably absent on our newsfeeds lately. His team, meanwhile, continues to show support for the incoming president amid all the recent controversies.
In other news, supermodel Karlie Kloss posted a series of negative comments directed at a certain local airline. It turns out she was late for her flight, but the point that seems to have been lost is a lot of our local companies need to rethink their customer services policies.
