Where did she perform in RWM?
At Bar 360, the entertainment hub of RSW.
RWM is an integrated resort complex that includes a casino, hotels, restaurants, a shopping mall and a theater, among others.
Uson and her Mocha Girls regularly perform at Bar 360, not the casino, of RWM.
Resorts World Manila should not be confused with the casino it operates.
Bar 360, is one of the stand-alone components of the RWM complex, that include the casino,
Newport Performing Arts Theater, Newport Mall, Marriott Hotel,
Marriott Grand Ballroom, and Remington Entertainment Center.
Bar 360 is the entertainment hub of RWM and not part of the casino operation.
The casino is located at the 2nd Floor of the RWM complex; Bar 360 is at the ground floor.
Uson, Assistant Secretary at the Office of the Presidential Communications Office (Malacanang) has been reported as having performed at the RWM ‘casino,’ in violation of a Malacanang memorandum order barring government officials and employees from entering ‘gambling casinos.’
For her alleged violation, Uson was severly attacked by a blog openly critical of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Did Uson violate the memorandum?
Precisely because she did not perform at the RWM casino, but at Bar 360, which is not a gambling casino, but an entertainment hub at the RWM.
If Uson is accused of violating a Malacanang memorandum for doing her act at Bar 360, her critics are saying that she could not shop at a mall, check in at an hotel, eat at a restraurant, see a movie or view a theatrical presentation at the Resort World Manila complex!
