$20,000 Dinner at si Willie Revillame

Sunday, August 9, 2009 ·

How would you love to spend a whooping $20,000 US Dollars (or approximately 1,000,000 Php) for a dinner at the Le Cirque Restaurant?

**********

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo found herself (for the nth time) in the center of controversies after she, together with her official entourage in the US, were featured in the New York Post for having the time of their lives spending close to $20,000 USD at the Le Cirque Restaurant in New York.

The excerpt states:

"The economic downturn hasn’t persuaded everyone to pinch pennies. Philippines President Maria Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was at Le Cirque the other night with a large entourage enjoying the good life, even though the former comptroller of her country’s armed services, Carlos Garcia, was found guilty earlier this year of perjury and two of his sons were arrested in the US on bulk cash-smuggling charges. Macapagal-Arroyo ordered several bottles of very expensive wine, pushing the dinner tab up to $20,000.”


**********

As expected, the oppositions and the militant groups are all over the news, the web, and the papers, to trumpet the issue to the general public.


**********

Naisip ko lang: "Does it really matter to us kung malaman natin na gumastos nga ang Presidente ng isang milyong piso para lamang sa isang dinner?"


**********


Alin ang mas matimbang na usapin? Ang $20,000 dinner date ni President Arroyo? O ang kaso ng ginawang pambabastos (daw) ni Papi Willie Revillame sa libing ni Dating Pangulong Cory Aquino?

simula´t simula eh hindi ko gusto yung way ng pagsasalita ni willie..masyadong deretso na nagmumukha na syang ewan at kadalasan eh talagang nakakasakit...

may kasalanan nga sya sa hindi nya pagsasabi ng off cam sa issue na yun pero sa isang banda nakuha ko yung point nya....isang masayang programa ang wowowee..malapit din sa kanya si dating president..nakaka distract talaga yun...pero kung di sya mapaparusahan pauulit ulitin lang nya ang gawaing ganon...

ang gulo ko..ano ba pinagsasabi ko..ahihihi
