Senators hailed the participation of Senator Chiz Escudero during the Senate hearing on the Maharlika Investment Fund.
“It’s the first time in a long time that we’ve seen that smile on his face with a wonderful aura,” Sen. Grace Poe, said.
Escudero has remained silent following reports that his marriage to actress Heart Evangelista was on the rocks. It was unusual for Escudero, one of the Senate’s legal eagles, to be quiet on very important and sometimes, controversial issues hounding the government.
Senate President Migz Zubiri, during the Senate hearing, said, “the reason why we suspended the session is because I want to give a big hug to my dear friend and classmate in Congress and our idol.”
For her part, Sen. Loren Legarda said she agrees with Poe who sees a different aura in Escudero. At the Senate, Escudero wore a big smile after receiving “love jokes” from his colleagues.
