Gov scandalized by bikini show

Governor Gwendolyn Garcia yesterday expressed disgust over what she labeled as a “tasteless, scandalous and totally disrespectful” fashion show in Boljoon town last Friday night.

Garcia and Boljoon Mayor Deogenes de Rama were invited to grace the staging of what was called a fashion show of indigenous attire as one of the highlights of the town’s annual fiesta yesterday.

Just as the show was about to start, Garcia said she was shocked when the lights turned on and a woman came out from the stage wearing a bikini.

“I was totally scandalized beyond belief,” Garcia told reporters.
