In his first State of the Nation Address, President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III sported a new haircut and wore a JC Buendia signature barong.
Aquino then broke tradition and entered the House of Representatives through the South Lounge instead of entering the main lobby.
His speech, majority of which was in Filipino, lasted for 36 minutes. It was applauded 34 times.
