On Saturday, December 10, Malacanang Palace hosted a meeting with President Ferdinand “BongBong” Marcos Jr. and bloggers. Apparently, some bloggers including Pebbles Cunanan and Maharlika criticized the meeting for Malacanang’s alleged poor treatment. They claimed that they were only fed with ensaymadas and juices during the meeting.

“They called for a meet and greet, ang pagkakaintindi ko kasi sa meet and greet is a party, pero may eksena inutusan sila ipaintindi daw sa mga tao ang Maharlika Fund, anong meet and greet yan?” said Cunanan. Maharlika Fund is the controversial sovereign wealth fund proposed by some legislators.

“Tapos ensaymada lang pagkain sa loob ng Malacañang makikinabang na rin lang naman kayo sa mga vloggers/bloggers di niyo pa hinandaan ng buffet like doon sa mga designers na DILAW na wala namang gawa. Hay naku, buti na lang hindi ako umattend baka nalait ko pa yang ensaymada, I don’t eat ensaymada at lunch juicemio.” he added.

Maharlika, a blogger, also expressed her frustration at the aforementioned event over how poorly the bloggers were treated. In one of her posts, she compared the treatment given to bloggers versus the Malacañang Press Corps.

Malacañang has yet to issue any statement regarding the sentiments of the bloggers about their meeting. Amid the criticism that the Palace is receiving from bloggers, some netizens defended Malacanang because the event as they say is “meet and greet” and not “meet and eat”
