MANILA- (UPDATE) Despite criticism for her fashion choices, Senator Nancy Binay has managed to maintain a positive outlook.

And she proved this again on Monday when she joked about her outfit choice for the opening of the 3rd regular session of the Senate.

"O di ba, match na match ako sa carpet?" Binay told reporters upon entering the Session Hall.

The lady senator was referring to her light blue terno, which matched the color of the hall's carpet.

She also wore the same dress for the President's third State of the Nation Address on Monday afternoon.

"Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga nagba-bash, tsaka yung mga naglo-look forward sa susuotin ko every year. 'Yun pa lang, it’s an honor," she said.

(I thank the bashers and those who look forward to my outfits every year. That alone is an honor.)

Binay, who has been a subject of several memes in the past, has used her social media accounts to provide tips on handling cyber-bullies and encourage netizens to promote positivity.
