Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 13) — President Rodrigo Duterte's common-law wife, Cielito "Honeylet" Avanceña, hosted the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit's Spouses Program.

Avanceña on Monday treated DS Rosmah Mansor, the second wife of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak; Iriana Joko Widodo, wife of Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Ho Ching, wife of Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong; Naraporn Chan-o-cha, wife of Thailand Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha; and Kim Jung-sook, wife of South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

"Madame Honeylet will give boxes of world-renowned chocolate produced in Malagos, Davao City as her personal token to the spouses of the leaders," said the President's Social Secretary Annalyn Tolentino said.

The state first ladies enjoyed a four-course luncheon at the Manila Hotel featuring native Filipino delicacies, prepared by executive chef Konrad Walter.

The spouses also toured an exhibition at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Manila, which showcased artifacts, images, and texts of the history of Southeast Asia.
