Why are nasty critics saying President Duterte accomplished nothing during his trips to Hong Kong, China and Cambodia? It is simply not true. Let's look at his concrete achievements:

First, he managed to get some much needed snooze time. This is an important component of the Duterte presidency. How else can the president recharge himself for his fabulous late night demented rants?

Second, his family and entourage got to do vital shopping and touring in Hong Kong.

Third, and most important, Duterte did something epic: he reshaped the world. He said he would support the membership applications of Turkey and Mongolia to ASEAN.

Weeks ago, the ever reliable Stinking Pinoy News Network (SPNN) dropped a bombshell: a photo of the vice president DOING YOGA WITH A TRAINER RIGHT IN HER OFFICE. SPNN implied she used public funds for private lessons.

In fairness, the story had a minor problem - it was totally fake.The vice president was indeed taking yoga, but as part of a fitness program for her entire office, and the lessons were paid out of the pockets of the participants.

Dropped the ball there, Stinking Pinoy! Such a kidder, you.

But more important, you missed out on a REALLY GREAT story. Namely, did YOU know the Duterte administration is very much into yoga?
