Are you still wondering why there seems to be no end to the "colorful" life Kris Aquino is living? Well, she started her erroneous conduct at a young age, perhaps even tolerated by her elders.

Take this example: In 1990, diplomatic sources claimed that the late President Corazon Aquino gave some problems to Japanese protocol officers when she brought her daughter Kris to Tokyo to attend the enthronement of Emperor Akihito.

Kris reportedly did not receive an official invitation. Many adjustments had to be made in the official arrangements by the bewildered Japanese in charge of protocol. Diplomatic observers said that a serious breach of protocol was committed when President Aquino, with Kris by her side, officially greeted the Japanese emperor during the solemn rites. It should have been Foreign Affairs Secretary Raul Manglapus, not Kris, who was originally set to be by the President's side.

Wasn't it also this same Kris, now years after, who is now attacking trapos running for public office, pointing out that her brother Noynoy is not at all trapo?

Well, their father, the late Senator Benigno 'Ninoy' Aquino Jr. was one of the outstanding trapos during his lifetime. He rose from town mayor to governor and to senator and was secretary-general of the Liberal Party. Ninoy's own father was one of the trapos in President Manuel Quezon's Cabinet.
