May 10, 2010 was the first automated election in the history of the Philippines. And as a citizen, that was also my first time to exercise my right to suffrage. Despite the issues that Comelec and Smartmatic are facing right now regarding the PCOS machine and its whole entourage, I know my vote has been counted.
On Wednesday, June 9, 2010, Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III was proclaimed as Philippines’ 15th President-elect.
Our Awesome Planet‘s Ultimate Taste Test 4.0 was held at the NBC Tent last May 14, Friday.
Surprisingly, the event started 7pm on the dot (I thought Filipino time is still prevalent around here. Good thing not on this event!).
A long line outside NBC Tent greeted us as we approach the venue. We were there few minutes after 7pm. It was only after waiting for awhile that somebody went out to tell us that we were lining at the Special Concerns line. Meaning a few good minutes was spent waiting at the wrong line.
So everybody rushed inside to find the right line. Then it occurred to us that there are few lines to accommodate guests in alphabetical order. Mine is under Li-Ra line.
I lined up (few more minutes). I signed the paper (for attendance?). I was given a box (to hold the food) and a map inside the venue with the list of food suppliers and their corresponding numbers. At the back of the map is the rate sheet and comment box for the food will be tasting & rating.
