Malacanang just really wants the brouhaha over the presidential food-tripping in New York and Washington D.C. to go away so it’s just letting everything hang out.

Malacanang’s finance officer, Ms. Ching Vargas, who holds executive secretary rank, released the expense report from the trips and quite non-chalantly revealed that the equivalent of about PhP 6-M was given away as “gratuities,” meaning tips to service staffers at the restaurants  and hotels President Arrroyo and her retinue dined at in D.C.  and elsewhere during their week-long pasyal.

Between Press Secretary Cerge Remonde and presidential son Mikey Arroyo saying “you can’t expect the President to eat at just any hotdog stand, McDonald’s or some ‘undignified’ turo-turo, the release of the expense report is Malacanang’s way of telling Filipinos “so shut up already.”

Borrowing from Conrad De Quiros then, we say “may araw din kayo!”
