Even though he’s already gone, President Bongbong Marcos did not forget his best friend Bong Daza in his inaugural
BONGBONG MARCOS – The President of the Republic of the Philippines reserved a seat for his late best friend Gabriel “Bong” Daza III during his inauguration.

On Instagram, actress and television host Isabelle Daza posted a photo with the image of her father placed on Seat No. 17.
Isabelle is an actress-host who appears in the noontime show, Lunch Out Loud. She is the daughter of Bong Daza, a restaurateur and former Makati city councilor and Miss Universe 1969, Gloria Diaz.
Isabelle and her mom Gloria were invited to the oath-taking of Marcos Jr.
Bong is the best friend of Marcos Jr. He passed away last July 14, 2016, due to a heart attack.
In his eulogy for Bong, Marcos Jr. said that Isabelle’s father is a kind, genuine, and trusted friend of his.
Marcos Jr. did not forget his late best friend when he won as the president.
He also stood as a second father to Isabelle though he’s her godfather.

Isabelle and her husband now have two kids namely Balthazar Gabriel and Valentin.
