There are 10 first ladies who confirmed to Kris Aquino’s lunch

But ten is a pretty good number, don’t you think? Not too much for it to be a wild party and not too little for the gathering to be a flop.

On the Monday episode of her morning show Kris TV, presidential sister Kris Aquino said she and her team worked really hard for the lunch that she will be hosting for the first ladies on the 19th because yes, she will be attending to them while their husbands become busy with APEC meetings.

For that, called Kris the “de facto first lady during the Asia-Pacific Cooperation (APEC) summit.”

Anyway, as per Krissy, “Ten lang yung nag-confirm: Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, tapos Malaysia, Thailand, New Zeland, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Colombia.”

She added: “Type ng mga Pinoy ang Colombia.”

What Kris forgot to mention was whether all 21 leaders will be bringing their wives along, or not.

In any case, the Philippines will see a complete APEC attendance on Nov 18 & 19. All leaders of the 21-member economies of the Summit, including US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, will be in town for the APEC meetings.

So while the roads become crazy with reroutings and closed lanes, and as the airports, we suggest you tune in to Kris’ IG, where we’re expecting her to give a blow-by-blow account of the lunch. That’s @WithLoveKrisAquino for you.
