Marian Rivera made an appearance at an ASEAN Summit 2017 welcome dinner held on Saturday in Clark, Pampanga where she and husband Dingdong Dantes were introduced to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.
It can be recalled that the Cambodian Prime Minister has personally requested to meet the Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera because of her popularity in Cambodia.
At first, Marian Rivera was hesitant because she is not used to attending such gatherings. But because of the great opportunity of the invitation, she and her husband Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes decided to attend the welcome dinner.
Dingdong Dantes shared on Instagram Live photos of them posing with the prime minister.
Marian Rivera was personally invited by Hun Sen, who the actress said must have known her for her roles in the TV shows “Dyesebel” and “Marimar,” which were aired in Cambodia.
Her TV shows Dyesebel and Marimar were a hit in Cambodia. She has a good Cambodian following or fan base. Her last series before giving birth to Zia, Carmela, is also set to air in Cambodia. Not only that, it is also going to air in Thailand.
Hun Sen arrived in the country on Saturday for the 31st ASEAN Summit, which takes place in the coming days. The welcome dinner was hosted by former president and Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
