Mayor Vico Sotto was quick to heed the Department of Education’s recommendation to shift to wearing sablay instead of toga for graduation ceremonies.

The politiko talked to school heads in Pasig just a day after a DepEd letter went viral. Now, all graduations in the city would go UP-style with honorary shawls to wear.

“Nag-usap na kami ng mga pampublikong paaralan dito sa Pasig at mula sa ‘toga,’ dun na rin kami sa ‘sablay,’” Sotto said. ”Bukod sa mas Pilipino ito — pareho lang ang gagastusin ng LGU, pero maiuuwi nila ito pagkatapos ng graduation! (yung toga renta lang kasi).”
