  1. Sana malinaw na sa lahat. Siguro naman maine is satisfied with this na. The trip is official but expensed out of pocket.

    1. Hehehe the point is, hnd sya nakaleave so binabayaran sya ng taong bayan para sa travel (kapag kasama si Maine, baka honeymoon) nya. Wala naman official trip na ganyan katagal unless scientist sya, o sundalo na sasabak sa rescue operation abroad, astronaut, o medical professional na may mission. Dinaig pa mga Presidente. 🀣

    2. May travel tax exemption nga siya eh. Dapat nag leave na lang siya. Anyway, ganyan talaga mga nakapwesto. Wala pa yan sa mga perks and privileges nila.

    3. More on napahiya sya. Sya pala tong “privy yet uninformed” sa galawan ng asawa nya!

    4. Where does it say na hindi siya nag leave? Isa sa prerequisites ng TA is an approved leave form

    6. To witness international screening... To visit Filipino Communities in Italy and Greece... from Aug 5-27.

      Siguro naman 1 day lang yung international screening, so kailangan ng 3 weeks para sa meet and greet? Aba magaling, pakilista lahat ng grupong imi-meet at kelan, ktnxbye.

    7. Reading comprehension sa mga high blood. Official capacity nga e, 106 am hindi ka siguro maalam sa official travels. Kung mas mura na tumuloy from one trip to another, this is usually done kaysa uuwi sa Pinas in between travels. Even sa ibang bansa, we do this. It is also allowed to combine official and personal travels as long as you pay for the personal part. Expect nyo ba na kung pupunta sa isang country sa Europe uuwi muna sa Pinas then pupunta ulit to another European country? Mas concern ang organizations sa CO2 emissions sa totoo lang.

    8. baka naman leave without pay? hahahah

    9. 7:25 baks magpakatotoo tayo. You really think he is doing any kind of government work sa official trip na yan? Filmfest tapos a few stops para kumaway kaway sa fans este "Filipino community"? Come on.

    10. 725 official travel means travelling in his CAPACITY AS AN ELECTED GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL. Alam namin yan madam wag kang mema. Kung talagang malinis yan si Arjo, inihiwalay nya sana ang travel nya as a private person sa official travel nya. Different dates sana. Nakakaland cruiser nga sila kaya malamang afford na afford nila kahit 6 months pa sa Europe! Hindi yan alang alang sa pagtitipid o convenience on their part. madam. ALANG ALANG YAN SA TINATAWAG NA DELICADEZA bilang public servant. Iwas confusion at doubt sa electorate na nagluklok sa kanila sa pwesto. At oo concerned kami sa mga official na gumagawa ng ganyan. Imagine kung 300 daang congressman ang gagawa ng ganyan at 24 na senador? Aba eh kawawang Pilipinas talaga.

    11. Naks @anon1:15 galit na galit ka naman haha sa dami ng senador at congressman na mas may bahid ng ganyang ugali si Arjo talaga pinag initan mo sa sumabatan ng kaban ng bayan?! May oera yung tao girl artista nga eh bukod sa family money niya . May pera din si girl. Ang dami nagbbyahe dyan na mas questionable never naman kayo nag react lol

    13. 7:25 AM Baki mo inihahalintulad ang official travels mo na sa official travel ng public official?

      Delete
    14. 225 and 226 iisa lang ang comment mo. Hanap damay ka pa. The fact na Arjo was not transparent at first eh alam mo naman, he’s up to no good. And tama nga ang inquirer. While he will use his personal money for the trip, his salary for 3 weeks will still be paid by the Filipino tax money. Your own tax money are paying for your idol’s salary so he could go for a honeymoon in Europe with his wife.
      Let that sink in to you πŸ˜‰

    15. 2:26 vacation yung kay isko dai, not "official trip". Hindi na nga sya mayor non

      try mo kaya mag-research sa google ng mga public officials na cinall-out ng mga netizens sa pang-aabuso nila ng power nila? madami yan. nasa topic ka lang ni arjo kaya panay pag-call out kay arjo nababasa mo

  3. irresponsible journalism pa rin sa side ni Inquirer

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not really. INQ was right as they only pertained about the newly weds going on an official trip after the wedding. It is no longer a requirement to write any other supplemental details from the main topic. Writing in news has limited sections and words. Maine could have just discussed the additional info in her vlog lol ayan tuloy nascrutinize pa

      Delete
    2. 1217 the statement saying he will travel by his own expense was deliberately tsken out. for sure alot of people will react negatively kaya nga yomg wife ngarag sa pag clear ng name nila dahil maraming uto-uto na naniniwala at bash kaagad without verifying facts...

      Delete
    3. Anong irresponsible? Yung article ng Inquirer copied practically word for word the travel authority issued to Atayde.

      Delete
    4. True 1217. Wala naman actually masama sa orig article e. Pero maine took it the wrong way and questioned Inquirer’s credibility. Syempre dedepensa ang Inquirer, since their credibility is important. Yan tuloy ma resibo, na ratioed, na kitaan pa ng isyu.

      Lagi na lang naninidak si meng when called out, relying on her blind followers to back her up.

      Delete
    5. No. By not clarifying, Inquirer implied about the expense. If they really had no intentions, why didn't they clarify? Why wait for the matter to blow out of proportion?

      Delete
    6. May travel authority kasi eh at usually government expenses yan. Exemption un hindi sagot ng government

      Delete
    7. Syempre there was an intent of malice para mapagusapan but honestly it wouldnt have blown out of proportion have maine been quiet and just brushed it off for the time being. she even called them out as fake news when the fact is inq only noted it as an official trip after the wedding - nothing wrong with that so i wouldnt really say that as irresponsible journalism

      Delete
    8. Ano ka ngayon Maine?! Hahaha

      Delete
    9. 1233 how did you know it was deliberately taken out? the news was only about them going on an official trip.

      Delete
    10. not necessarily na sagot ng govt pag may issued travel authority 1:29. Kasi mandatory for all government employees who want to travel outside of the country na magpresent ng travel authority. kahit nayou will be using your leave.

      Delete
    11. 1:29 for government employees, need ng TO for both personal and official travels

      Delete
    12. Anon 12:33 I read the same article from INQ and Philippine Star (online) AT walang ano mang ommission as you claim dahil those newspapers were merely reporting about Arjo's OFFICIAL trip as a member of congress during his honeymoon. Ang weird lang na Maine singled out INQ.

      Next time basahin mo din ang laman ng article hindi yung react agad sa headline tulad ng idol mo.

      Delete
    13. Basahin kasi yung content not just title. Tapos sasabihin niyo irresponsible journalism. Kayo irresponsible readers. Puwede ding tamad lang bumasa, poor comprehension lang, or nega overthinker lang talaga.

    14. Maine fans who were so quick to bash inq, just take the L and go. You keep moving the goalposts makadefend lang. Nakakahiya na.

      Delete
    15. 1.29 may travel authority lahat ng nagta-travel na govt employee whether for work or personal. magkaiba lang ang tawag or depende ata sa office. kaya usually, lalo pag public school teacher, hindi dine-declare ng iba na govt sila kapag hindi sila nakakapag-secure niyan.

      Delete
    16. 5:15 WRONG. Authority to travel lang kung overseas trip na personal. Travel order is for official travel only. Magkaiba yan.

      Delete
  4. Well ngayong naleak na yan, mappwersa na si arjo mkipagmeet sa mga tao dun. Ang dating sa akin yung visit ek ek from aug 5 to aug 27 is just a reason to make the trip long. Malamang honeymoon talaga sana yan. Newlyweds ba naman. But now that naleak na, goodbye official honeymoon. Hope maine learns her lesson na wag magmagaling bec she is clearly very naive and uninformed about arjo's affairs as a politician.

    12. Why should Inquirer apologize? If you look at the date of certification letter stating Arjo would be using his own money for the trip, it was 8/02/2023. Meaning, kung hindi pa ibinalita ng Inquirer, hindi pa maka-clarify na pera ni Arjo ang gamitin.

    13. Ang tamang tanong, nagapologize na ba si maine?

    14. Si Maine dapat mag apologize sa inquirer. That’s defamation. Kung ako yung reporter na ni call out nya, kakasuhan ko si girl nang magtanda

    15. Why should Maine apologize? She and Arjo were bashed bec of that misleading article INQ posted which insinuates that they will use govt funds. InQ deleted the post and reposted with updates twice.

  13. Bakit mali ang Inquirer? 1st totoo naman palang “Official” trip. 2nd Hindi naman sinabing hindi galing sa own money nila yung gagamitin sa trip? Si mrs. Atayde lang naman ang may nega reaction sa article na yan, I visited the main post nung Inquirer, everyone’s just wishing them a happy trip

    2. 1247 totoo nman yung sinulat ng inquirer na official visit yun. I don’t get it din, official visit kasi hindi kaylangan ng leave pero approve na rin kahit papano kasi sariling pera nila ang gamit? Jusko, gaano ba kahirap ang buhay ni Arjo at gagawin nya to? Kaloka ha.

      Delete
    3. 1247 learning about journ ethics is different from publishing your news in real life. it's a cut throat industry, and if we're being honest these news sites need traction, they are afterall still a business

    4. Still malicious. Official government travel at own’s expense is an exception rather than the norm.

      Delete
    5. 1247am the July 10 travel order didn't say Arjo did not request for funding for the trip so there are no details to "omit". Sa Aug 2 memo lang lumabas yang detail na yan after the newlyweds' defensive posts.

    7. 7:46 and 9:14 I beg to disagree. Si Maine and Arjo ang unang binash ng todo sa comments sa first INQ article and that's why they tweeted their reactions. It is their right to defend themselves as it is the right of people to express themselves but some do it to the point of bashing and bullying already.

  38. Kung tama ang inquirer bakit padin nila kailangan ipublish un kung saan pupunta ang mag asawa? Anong paki nila wala bang privacy? Tapos kung sa mga idols nyo yan gawin magagalit kayo.

    1. 5:49 your argument is too pathetic. sa mga idols? feeling mo lahat ng commenters dito fans? anong privacy? work-related ang travel as stated sa documents. naintindihan mo ba yung nakasulat sa documents?

  39. At bakit naman sya kasi pinapapunta sa Europe? Or excuse lang nya, daan lang sya sa Filipino community doon, dapat hindi na official travel. Kasi mas maraming for personal ganap lang ang gagawin nya doon, kesa as Cong. e. At ang tagal talaga? So hindi as Cong. Ang duty nya doon. Pwede naman syang pumunta doon, pero dapat naka leave sya.

  40. Politicians should not be allowed to hold side jobs like acting. It's ridiculous. The meet and greets with Filipino communities sound so lame too. How many other politicians use that excuse?

    1. True, if you run for politics, once elected, focus na dapat sa public service. Step out muna dapat sa limelight. Hindi ung ganto, makes me think na gnagmt lng nila popularity nila para manalo at wala naman tlga sa puso ang public service.

  41. Ang malas naman nila! Inisked pa talaga yung "official trip" just days after their wedding. At ang tagal pa ha. Imbis na naghohoneymoon na sila, nagwowork pa rin si hubby.🀭

  42. Mga comments dito as if sa congress nagtatrabaho. Siya ba ang kauna unahang taong tumuloy sa bakasyon after doing work? Pwede bigyang pansin niyo na lang yung ibang politicians na May actual kurakot na ginagawa.

    3. Don’t worry, we are on it too. Sarap lang bardahin ng mga fans ni Maine at Arjo na tulad mo na naive at blind follower. Will shut an eye kahit mali na ang idol.

  44. Media is all about sensationalism. News ba kung aalis ang government official? Pero kung may hint that something is done wrong then it becomes news. So deliberate yon sa part ng INQ dahil alam nila marites capital of the world ang Pinas. Mga tsismosa unang naiisip masama. Pinakamaiingay sa internet at social media mga Pinoy kaya laging target ng mga foreigners na clout chasers.

    2. This. Malinaw rin naman to those who see through the whole thing.

    3. as you said, media is about sensationalism. they delivered the news, probably with a bit of inuendo but that doesnt diminish the fact that what they published were true. Have the newly weds been quiet about it, it wouldnt have this much attention. besides, it wasnt only INQ who delivered the news. i have read it in some other news site as well, why single out INQ? i guess this is all on them...

  45. Congress is in session while Arjo is in Europe for three weeks for his honeymoon slash working trip. He could have just taken a short trip for the premiere and then gone back home immediately so as not to miss the sessions in Congress. But he extended his travel because it is also his honeymoon. At the same time, since he is not on official leave (since he is meeting with OFW groups as a legislator and attending the premiere because he is vice chair of that arts committee - it is all in the official document ) he will still be drawing a salary. Even if he is not in the country to attend the sessions of Congress. So in a sense, he is STILL using public funds for the trip. Maybe Arjo and Maine could have deferred that nearly month long trip to when Congress is in recess. But it looks like this trip was planned a while back.

  46. Official trip in his official capacity…….. as a congressman, may constituents sya duon sa Europe? Just asking

  47. Why exempt sa travel tax if personal pala?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 10:00 because he filed it as official and it was approved as official by congress kahit obvious naman na hindi totoong "work" ang gagawin nya don. Madaming politikong ganyan makapal ang fez umabuso ng benefits

  48. Mali ang Inquirer for omitting the fact na personally babayaran ang expense. Journalism should be unbiased and transparent.

    1. Ikaw ang mali. Tama ang sinabi ng inquirer na official ang trip niya.

  49. sa dami ng out of the country ni arjo lately wala na syang choice kung di mag official trip kuno para di macall out sa congress tsk para paraan talaga

    ReplyDelete
  50. Gov Employees needed TO to travel kahit personal or on Official Business, Ngayon kung personal funds ang gagamitin, bakit sya exempted sa Travel Tax? E ang binibigyan lang ng exemption e yung funded ng Government ang travel hindi ang personal.. So ayun na nga >.<

  51. Mr. & Mrs. Atayde should have moved their honeymoon trip to another date. A week of deferment could have "saved" them from issues. Just an opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  52. People are making a mountain out of a mole hill. Of course the guy will go on a honeymoon! I work all the time when I’m traveling. And people are allowed to get paid time off. He has an arts role in as part of his official duty right? So why not kill three birds by attending the Locarno film fest? Why don’t we focus on the real issues

    1. 8:22 hindi pa ba ito real issue? A politician abusing his power for his benefit?
