Interesting turn of events. That's a phrase best suited to describe plot twists in mystery novels and cinematic thrillers.
Well, here's a plot twist for the event videographer... (excerpt from Philippine News Mag, www.inquirer.net)
"'I will definitely run for vice president. Nothing has changed my mind on this,' ... [Ronaldo "Ronnie"] Puno told reporters here on Monday.
Puno, who was here to meet with Central Luzon officials, has reassumed his post at the Department of the Interior and Local Governments (DILG) following a trip to the United States.
While Puno was on leave, Public Works Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. took over his post at the DILG in an acting capacity.
Questions were raised about Puno’s trip to the US and the appointment of an acting secretary at the DILG when Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita told media Puno was on medical leave, which the interior secretary immediately denied.
Earlier, Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr. said Puno's silence bolstered suspicions that he was on his way out of the Cabinet.
But Puno dispelled speculations that he would be leaving the Cabinet and that he went to the US in connection with his political plans.
"Senator Pimentel just doesn't know the many communications I had with the President while I was in the US," said Puno.
He said he went on a two-week vacation leave to attend the wedding of his daughter in the US and to visit his parents."
Rewind to July 4th: Andrew shoots a Sonoma wedding for his wonderful clients, Brian and Tami Puno. Unbeknownst to Andrew, Tami's father is Ronaldo Puno, SILG (Secretary of the Interior and Local Governments) for the Philippines. In light of the controversy and rumors surrounding his two-week leave to the United States, Tami asks Andrew is he can whip up a little wedding trailer depicting her father (in good health) enjoying his daughter's wedding.
Not to disappoint, Andrew makes this wedding trailer which is now being circulated by those who Tami and Andrew jokingly refer to as Mr. Puno's "handlers."
Who knew that a simple videographer would be tied up in such political intrigue and be relied upon to quell the swelling rumors of a political maelstrom! hahaha!
This is the video I made for Tami and Mr. Puno. Enjoy!
