3. The Left Not Left Behind

BAYAN and KMU officials take a photo with the new President. It is the first time that leftists have united with the president at no less than the Palace during his inauguration. President Digong has been open to dialogues with the left, intent on promoting peace on and for all. This is a concrete sign that change has come.

4. Inaugural Funny Face

Who is this guy making funny faces at the presidential inauguration? He is laywer Alexis Lumbatan. The lawyer-comedian gave netizens viral video gold as he put forth his best funny faces while waiting for the official inauguration to start.

5. Not Just Yellow

For many years, critics noted that Aquino, even as president, wore a yellow ribbon pin instead of a pin of the Philippine flag, signifying bias for allies. Netizens were quick to note the vast contrast: Aquino wearing the yellow ribbon, Duterte wearing the Philippine flag. Finally, a president for all.

President Duterte wears a PH flag while his predecessor, Benigno Aquino III ,sticks to yellow ribbon.

If these photos are the signs of the times to come, then we’re off to a promising start!
