Mayon ‘tours the world’
Netizens descended upon Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Esther Margaux “Mocha” Uson anew, this time making light of her recent gaffe in which she erroneously referred to Mayon Volcano as being situated in Naga City, Camarines Sur instead of its neighboring Albay province.
Uson later apologized for her mistake even as she slammed critics in a six-minute video uploaded on social media for allegedly placing undue focus on trivial issues instead of matters of national importance.
Uson’s remarks made the rounds on social media and netizens made fun of this latest boo-boo, creating memes at the PCOO assistant secretary’s expense.
Facebook user Alveen Alamo Osma’s digitally edited images of Mount Mayon in different locales have been liked and shared thousands of times by netizens.
One Facebook user even joked that the iconic Cagsawa Ruins, which is often photographed with the perfect cone of Mount Mayon in the background, was also being moved to accompany the globetrotting volcano.
Albay is currently on Alert level 4 as Mayon Volcano continued to show significant volcanic activity, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
