By Alon Calinao Dy: A very vocal supporter of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, a known comedian actress Ai-Ai delas Alas was happy to know that the Philippine president was respected not only in the Philippines but in Cambodia as well.
Delas Alas and ABS-CBN TV host Kris Aquino had a misunderstanding in the past. Ai-Ai named the sister of a former president PNoy Aquino as an "a former friend and a former roommate."
According to some reports, the two showbiz personalities are already friends but Ai-Ai chose President Duterte rather than Liberal Party Mar Roxas last May elections.
Delas Alas couldn't believe the fact that President Duterte was welcomed like a "superstar" by the Filipino community living in Cambodia.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said "everywhere President Duterte goes, there are Filipinos who love him because he is just a simple leader who has a big heart for the poor. And so, for them, he is like a rockstar."
Delas Alas posted on her Instagram saying that she was happy about the good image of President Duterte in other countries. She was amazed how the world leaders particularly Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen respects Duterte.
