Walking along Patong Beach


Walking along Patong Beach in Phuket, I noticed ornamental tiles along the sidewalk. There are ornamental tiles on the sidewalks of Antipolo too. But nothing like this. Rather, they spell ACG, the initials of the former city mayor, and currently House Representative, Angelito C. Gatlabayan. The first time I saw those ACG tiles nine years ago, I wondered if Mr. Gatlabayan thought that being mayor means owning the entire city and, hence, the proprietary tiles on the sidewalks.

Anyway, coming out tomorrow, my story about my afternoon in Phuket’s Patong Beach.

    he he he…parang sa QC, they have signages with SB in the guise of “Serbisyong Bayan” but really stands for Sonny Belmonte. in Manila before they have, like pasiglahin ang Mayni-LA short for Lito Atienza… and a lot lot more… kawawa naman ang pobreng taxpayer, hindi man lang mailagay initials ng pangalan nya sa mga poste…
