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.
