Marcos Jr.’s High School Reunion Invokes Nostalgia and Stirs Speculation

Our sources recently detailed an exciting event for the Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. He revisited his past when he attended his high school’s 50-year reunion at La Salle Greenhills, on February 3, 2024. This memorable event, charmingly named ‘Galing ng Green,’ saw President Marcos, flaunting his pride of being a part of the 1974 graduating class. He was joined by the First Lady, Liza Araneta Marcos and influential individuals including BDO Unibank director Walter Wassmer.

Not a Hint of Appointment During the Gathering

The gathering had led to rising speculation about Wassmer’s potential appointment as finance secretary. This reunion’s excitement also led to the jam-packed traffic conditions on Ortigas Avenue as people were eager to catch a glimpse of the President and other prospective high-profile attendees. However, the attendees’ circle did not encompass renowned personalities like House Speaker Martin Romualdez and Finance Secretary Ralph Recto.

An Unexpected Presidential Order Amid Reunion

President Marcos Jr. used the occasion to introduce a new government directive while the reunion was in full swing. The directive imposes a requirement on presidential appointees to provide updated personal data sheets and clearances within a strict timeline of 30 days, propelling suggestions of an impending government overhaul.

Upcoming Transformation at Discovery Suites

Further to our sources, Discovery Suites, located in the Ortigas Central Business District and owned by the Tiu family, is preparing for a substantial renovation. Triggered by the upcoming 25th anniversary in the following year, an approximate fund of P24 million per floor is nearly set to be invested in the remodeling. This revamp wouldn’t affect the generous room sizes, a factor that lures the staff of the Asian Development Bank to the hotel.

New Management Unveils Promising Initiatives

Under the newly established leadership of Carlo Cruz, who boasts a rich history in hotel management, Discovery Suites has seen a jump in occupancy rates and revenues for the years 2022 to 2023. This ascension can be credited to the established dynamic pricing policy which seeks to render a personalized experience to the hotel’s patrons. Another appealing venture set to soon be implemented in the hotel is the concept of ‘kitchen takeovers.’ This innovative scheme will see the hotel pairing with famous chefs and eateries to enrich its food and beverage services.
