Manila Pen Stand Off

We had an Australian guest in Makati when Trillanes and company marched to Peninsula. She is actually planning to get married in Q1 next year and considering the Philippines or Thailand for their honeymoon. The president of one of our subsidiary companies was all out in marketing El Nido resorts in Palawan. I would have suggested the same. She was so thankful for the informations and I guess she was seriously considering El Nido. That was Wednesday.

Thursday morning-- work work work. Then, after lunch, all the TV networks are into this escape and march of Trillanes. At 3pm i guess CNN or BBC picked up the news, then the mobile phone of our guest started to ring.. calls from colleagues and bosses in Hong Kong and relatives in Australia. Even our counterparts in Hong Kong called to assess the situation. After so much calls, our guest decided to leave right then... picked up her things at the hotel then drove to the airport that afternoon.

I can tell from her face how worried she was. And i guess the Philippines have lost just another prospective tourist.

Anyway, I cant blame foreigners on how they'd react in such situations. This world has so much security concerns and often times foreigners are advised to just leave or move away asap.
