These images of some of the country’s wealthiest men in one photo have gone viral online, providing netizens with a bang for their buck in witticisms, while others added their two cents in the comments area.

Lance Gokongwei, Sid Consunji, Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Sabin Aboitiz, Mike Tan, George Yang, Anton Periquet, Anton Huang, Dennis Uy, and Gigi Montinola were among those that attended. South Korean, Spanish, and European Union ambassadors, as well as senior executives Rene Almendras, Mike Toledo, and Thomas Arasi, were all included in the shot.
