Ow, oks oks. 


Anyways, to start something, any thoughts on Trudeau's actually contradictory statements (e.g. distancing from Trumpist US and his good boy image vs. lack of commitment on the garbage shipment issue and Canada's continued arms support to Saudi Arabia)? 

P.S. buti pa siya may stuff toy ni Jollibee.

I don't recall a US president and Canadian prime minister attending an ASEAN. Trump and Trudeau must really respect Duterte for them to even come here and attend an event reserved only for leaders of South East Asian nations.

regardless if its respect, political agenda, or something else, only results from this expensive event will benefit us as a nation matters. even if each and every president from all countries attend, it will mean nothing to normal citizens if we dont get something positive out of it.

but yes, attendance is a good sign. lets hope for the best.

Hmmm, as far as I know, US is/can be invited since they have an observer status on the ASEAN and they are included in the ASEAN + 3 (may plus 5 pa nga yata pero ewan ko lang). 

Not sure with Canada though. Maybe it's a good sign that Canada is having an interest on Southeast Asia, but yeah, Trudeau should decide on what to do on the Canadian Garbage Issue. 


Btw, ano po ba ang pulso ng mga kababayan nating taga MTC re: Duterte? Tanong lang. Honest answers please.

I think this question belongs to the other thread but if you ask me about Duterte regarding being hosts of the  ASEAN; he is a class act, together with his common-law-wife.

Oh I see. We will cros the bridge when we get there. So far promises and  commitment write ups about ASEAN are being applauded. I am letting my fingers crossed. Time will come ... either we will hate more and more or we will hate less... That in every ASEAN traffic is worst first of all.

The fact that Trump attended the ASEAN is a sign of respect. He could have easily gone home to DC after the APEC but he still chose to attend the ASEAN. The prime minister of Laos also left already. The minority has been reduced to name-calling and warped logic.

I see some anti Trudeau rants in some of the news site’s comment section. I wonder if they’ll follow suit here.

Duterte ends his colourful Asean lead role

https://m.bangkokpos.../m.facebook.com

 

Indeed, Mr Duterte has shifted power politics in the region, by default or design, as no Asean leaders have done before. He did not follow any rules and remained unpredictable throughout his Asean chairmanship. Despite the verdict on the South China Sea conflict by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in favour of the Philippines, Mr Duterte decided to play the outcome the way he wanted to -- by befriending China to the bewilderment of his country, allies and friends. In the process, he took the bull by the horns and turned it around to his advantage. Mr Duterte has a lightning rod in his hands, which he can use anytime.

TRAGIC NEWS for some. It is the consensus of the respectable foreign press and the foreign heads of state and their delegations that the ASEAN 50 Summit was flawlessly and tastefully done and “truly world class.” Suicide is an option for some.

Well "World Class" is used liberally here. Since ASEAN is an event that's attended by international delegates. I'm not sure what criteria they used to describe it as such.

 

In any case, if it brings some good PR to the PH, I'm not about to argue that. 

 

A good PR value will last even after the current regime has passed anyways.

Outstanding hosting by the Philippines. Duterte was a class act.

we had a successful staging of the ASEAN. lots of opportunities but the same question comes up. will whatever benefits the country gets from this have the trickle down effect to the lower classes in the country or will it just widen the gap between the 'haves' and the 'have nots' even more? madami na talagang mamaman at mayamn na pero dumadami din ang mahirap at nagiging mas mahirap pa lalo. more equitable distribution of wealth and resources pa rin ang dapat tugunan
