Go Pilipina! is a discussion forum for Filipino women.
It was around 2010 na nakita ko si Imelda Marcos sa Gateway Mall sa Araneta Cubao. It was a bit strange seeing her in the same hair style and fashion she always had since nung first lady pa siya decades ago. Kinda strange na never siya nag palit ng appearance. Always with that signature hair and mala Filipiniana dress. Nakita ko lang siya sa labas sa may waiting area with three other beautiful girls. Sumakay sila sa kotse afterwards.
Si Duterte naman nakita ko sa Ortigas. I forgot what year it was, probably same year or 2011 or 2012. I saw him come out of the Holiday Inn hotel near the Robinsons Galleria Mall at pinagbukasn siya ng kotse ng isang mala body guard na naka Hawaiian shirt. At that time hindi ko pa siya kilala and I never thought that that person would be a future president. I just recognized him kasi nakita ko na siya sa TV news at one point. Pero at that time I don't think many people from Metro Manila knew who he was.
Yeah I also don't know who Duterte was back then. I think sumikat lang talaga siya through good publicity noong elections. Kahit family and friends ko hindi naman siya kilala pero overnight naging big supporters
