Spring Break!!!!!! YES!
Time out from distressing news from Japan and Libya.
Here are some TV commercials from the Philippines, for your amusement.
McDonalds! A few facts: PhP ( pesos ) 25 = $ 0.45 // $1.00 = PhP 45.00 It’s a girls’ night-out, but , they’re “broke”, they don’t have money, I think.
McDonald’s is undisputably the most popular thing in the world, from here to Timbuctoo, but in the Philippines, it isn’t. There’s a more popular hamburger joint over there….. JOLIBEE…… and , funnily enough, McDonald’s has acknowledged it, as shown in the picture. Ahahaha! Only in the Philippines ! And hurrah for Truth in Advertising !
When I was in the Philippines last summer, we went to McDonald’s ( They say McDo over there ) and yeah, taste was the same, it was pure beef, no compromise there, and that’s a good thing, but Jolibee’s , they say, is much tastier because of the additives, such as chopped onions , garlic and , I swear, I could taste celery and mustard in the beef. And, Jolibee also sells combo meals like teriyaki chicken/rice, beef mushroom in gravy/rice, and they are so delicious and cheap, 39 pesos ( $ .90 ). McDo has McChicken and McSpaghetti .
I wish I had taken a photo of the menu list . That combo of spaghetti and chicken is $1.19. Cheap. A dollar goes a long way over there.
Here are some more TV commercials…. KFC , Coke , Tide Detergent
Tide commercial where a woman is handwashing clothes and listening to a daytime radio drama .
It’s spring, but what the heck ! I haven’t seen the sun for weeks , it’s raining hailstones, my fingers are frozen, and our heater is not working !! We’ve been waiting for the repair guy to fix the heater, and I hope he comes soon. I’m freezing to death here. Oh, and yesterday, I was at the grocery and saw a couple of guys scanning the veggie section with what looked like a Geiger counter? The Geiger counter detects radiation, right? Now , why would they do that in California ? And, I heard the counter making that click click click sound as the veggies were being scanned. I wonder what that sound means….. I bought a bunch of spinach and cabbage, anyways….
This is all for now. Have a good day.
