By Boy Villasanta


A Department of Tourism (DOT) official, who requested anonymity, said that Cesar Montano is “doing good” as Chairman of the Tourism Promotions Board when asked if his current spat with artist Marlene Aguilar (sister of Freddie Aguilar) is affecting his job in government.

Although the official is obviously unaware of the difference between the two artists, he expressed confidence about Montano. “May issue ba yan? (Is there an issue?)” he asked.
