Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said he was invited to birthday party of social media personality Tim Yap.
Videos of the party viral after it showed guests weren’t following social distancing.
The Baguio politiko said he and his wife attended the party to thank Yap for his support for Baguio artists.
“Ang nangyari po nun, si Tim Yap and his group, nagpunta po doon sa aming art exhibit at ang dami po nilang nabiling art, paintings sa mga local artists namin, alam niyo naman yung mga artists namin talagang naghihikahos,” Magalong said.
“And then tinawagan po ako if I could attend so pumunta po kami doon ng wife ko to thank them,” he added.
