I mean it. Put me in jail, if you want.
Coming from my class, which ended past 9PM last night, I usually have my dinner in a fast food or a decent resto. But instead, last night, I landed more than a kilometer away from home just to dine in a turo-turo along Evangelista, Bangkal, Makati City.
From school, I went to KFC — but it was full and the queue ends at the door already. Tapa King is already closing. My next stop, Chowking near DFA, but it has been closed for an hour already. I walked down the stretch of Libertad to scout for a fast food that is still opened, but to no avail — Jollibee, McDo, and Greenwhich in all of their branches in Pasay were all closed already — that’s around 2130H.
No choice, I drove the stretch of Evangelista and saw Spare Strike still open, but it was full. Waited for around 20 minutes before the waitress (helper) took my order, and waited 5 more minutes before my “longsilog” was served. It’s past 10PM already! Chow time with some drunk men — since the place is famous for their “bulalo”.
You know, Mrs. Arroyo, I’m not against the curfew, but please, next time, make sure that you disseminate the guidelines way ahead before the curfew hours. It seems that everyone was panicking last night, trying to beat the 12 midnight curfew.
The curfew really sucks, big time!
