Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto is best known for promoting and practicing good governance and transparency as soon as he started serving in the public office. On top of that, netizens love him for his good sense of humor, with many of his tweets and video clips going viral. Now, he’s turning that funny side into… being a food blogger?
Vico Sotto now in his food blogger era
Last June 14, on his Instagram stories, Mayor Vico shared a photo of an empty plate, captioned with “A great cake” and the hashtag #FoodBlog. He also rated it with a perfect 10 out of 10 and recommended it as a must-try for his IG followers. The catch is, he never actually says where he got it from — or even what cake flavor it is. We just know he finished all of it (even all the icing), so it’s probably pretty good.
Share mo naman kung anong cake yan, Mayor!
He went on to post more food photos — now featuring actual food and not just an empty plate — with both high and low ratings and witty comments. He even goes through a variety of hashtags, some of which are #FoodBlog, #FoodBlogger, and #FoodReviewPH.
May ratings with decimal points pa.
On a scale of 1 to 10, where does “good” fall under?
It has a high rating, but we can’t even try it because even Mayor Vico doesn’t know where to get this shake.
Amid all his Instagram stories, Mayor Vico also asked members of the media not to report on his so-called ~food blog~. “Inside joke lang namin to ng mga ka-IG,” he clarified. To be fair, everyone just really loves his sense of humor, including us, and we filed this under Pop, not News. Plus, as we’ve already mentioned, the Pasig mayor is still best known for his policies on transparency and good governance. His good sense of humor is just icing on the cake.
Vico Sotto as a food critic
Proving that it’s not just us who love his funny side are netizens who tagged the mayor in their own food blog entries via Instagram stories. A day after he posted his own food reviews, Mayor Vico shared some entries from his Instagram followers, complete with his own rating of their ratings.
Mayor Vico has a point. Which is probably why he started with that cake review featuring an empty plate.
The mayor is asking, sure ka na ba dyan sa rating na yan?
Justice for this bangus!
Rule #1 in Mayor Vico’s food blog: You can’t review the food you cooked.
Nako, bagsak na bagsak ang score. And we don’t even know what this netizen cooked.
