wtf! was my initial reaction when i saw a boxing match yesterday involving toddlers. Imagine 5-6 year-old kids( some even say younger), boxing it all out like Manny Pacquiao complete with all the hullabaloo of a boxing ring, referee, handlers and of course the spectators.
I don't think this is even legal and to think that it was held right infront of the Municipal hall (which houses the local police too and the DSWD) and the Municipal Legislative hall. Anyway, absurd as it may be, according to reports, it was all done under the guise of promoting boxing to the future generation bs..
Jollibee Catarman opened the last week of July 2007 and because it is the first ever major fastfood chain to open in the province, it proved to be a big hit among the Nortehanons. Oh the queu, my first hand account would attest, it took me 2 hours to ever get a taste of its chickenjoy and palabok.
The Jollibee floors are dirty, its comfort rooms stuck, the staff harangued and the customers at the slightest irritation would definitely snap.
I hope these only happened because of the opening pandemonium...
This by-way or roadway to the Catarman central terminal building is an eyesore and a pain when traversed. This rough, unpaved road felt like Mt. Pinatubo when it exploded because dust scatter whenever you pass it especially if it is not raining. And don't get me started about the potholes too...
What are the local or provincial officials doing about it? God knows what, it has been there for ages.
This, after only a few weeks into the administration of the newly elected officials of the town.
Here is GMA's 24 Oras account of the dengue epidemic:
And contrary to the DOH's policy of not encouraging the use of fumigation, that was the only action that was taken by reportedly the regional office. As i remember it right, the DOH encourages a community to clean it's sorroundings and not rely on fogging operations as it does not kill the dengue-carrying mosquitos but only shooes it away.
