Huang Xilian, the Chinese ambassador to the Philippines, and citizens of China were also highlighted in Duterte’s greetings. On October 1, the People’s Republic of China will commemorate its National Day, one of its most significant holidays.

One person who didn’t appear impressed by the vice president’s Mandarin-speaking was Gracio. He claims that the other is making difficult-to-understand videos that refer to President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and that the other speaks Mandarin that sounds suspiciously like Butchikik without music.

“Yung isa, in the difficult moments, nagva-vlog; ‘yung isa naman, nagma-Mandarin,” Gracio said.

“Jusko, tuwang-tuwa ang mga utaw sa Mandarin speech na parang pagbigkas ng Butchikik without music,”he added.

Additionally, several internet users took issue with Duterte’s Mandarin speaking. Some people assert that she is simply making an effort to speak the language. Some suggested that VP Sara deliver the speech in either Filipino or English, along with subtitles.
