Senator-elect Imee Marcos is mulling having an Igorot perform a ritual to have her new Senate office be "blessed" after learning that it was previously occupied by outgoing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, a staunch critic of the Duterte administration.

"Siguro magpapatawag ako ng mga Igorot namin dahil kailangan basbasan ang office ko dahil kay Sen. Trillanes yata ang nabunot," Marcos told reporters after the orientation on newly-elected senators.

She said she would ask Trillanes to join her in dancing with the Igorots.

"'Yun na lang ang natira so kung papayag si Senator Trillanes, sasabihin ko kay Sonny (Trillanes' nickname) makikisayaw kami du'n sa mga Igorot namin para mabendisyonan ng todo," she added.

She later said that she was just joking.

Adriano Moraes silenced the Mall of Asia Arena when he edged out Geje Eustaquio in ONE Championship's first-ever trilogy bout.

After a cautious first frame from both men, the two flyweight superstars upped the ante in the later rounds, including an unorthodox submission attempt by Moraes in the fourth round. After five intense rounds, the judges ruled the bout in the favor of "Mikinho," giving the Brazilian his sixth ONE Flyweight World Title.

Garbed in white g-strings or native blouses and skirts, close to a thousand Ibaloys danced to the beat of gongs along downtown Baguio on Saturday (Feb. 23), the 9th Ibaloy Day.

Baguio Ibaloys, and Ibaloys from neighboring Benguet towns, proceeded to the Ibaloy Heritage Park inside the almost a century-old Burnham Park, where elders performed a thanksgiving ritual called "Owik".
