Hotdogs for President Noy!
I saw the video of our President Noynoy Aquino in the news the other day while he was eating hotdog in New York street with his delegations.
My first reaction was “Ano ba yan, nakakahiya naman!” (Oh my, it’s shameful!). I am not a hypocrite to say that it’s okay to see him eat something simple since I know he is just showing humility and also to show that the Philippines doesn’t have money to splurge on expensive foods just like the former President Arroyo did for having dinner in the Le Cirqeu restaurant. But, I feel ashamed since he is not just an ordinary people, He is our President.
Is it just me who feels this?
There’s nothing wrong with eating street foods but can he just make it in private? He can just ask his staff to order the hotdog for him and all his cabinet members and let them eat it in their hotel. Does he really need to show it to the media?
Well, what he did is still a lot better than what Arroyo did. For all the hotdog and drinks of his staff Pres.Noy just spend around $54 or P2,000, while Ex.Pres. Arroyo’s dinner at Le Cirque cost a whooping $20,000.
what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest
