Fast food galore

ONE can never get hungry in the vibrant city of Manila. There are countless home-grown fast food chains such as Jollibee, Chowking and Mang Inasal, apart from the McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King located almost just a few metres away from each other on the streets. And most are operating 24 hours.

Typhoon alert

THE public have received emergency alerts to expect and prepare for Typhoon Tisoy, which reached Filipino shores yesterday. Phones were vibrating constantly, but people in Manila were unfazed and went about their business. The areas that could be affected by the typhoon are Metro Manila, Bulacan, Bataan, Pampanga, the western part of Nueve Ecija, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal and Quezon.

The flame is on

THE state-of-the-art stadium cauldron in New Clark City sports complex, which reportedly costs 50 million pesos, has been lit, apparently since the opening ceremony on Nov 30. Although no one actually got to see it being lit, it is burning and the flames will only be put off after the closing ceremony on Dec 11.

Virtual jams, too

Heavy traffic is not just a nightmare on the streets. Results for most sports also couldn’t be tabulated and distributed due to the heavy traffic on the official website. For gymnastics, the organisers unofficially announced the results of the women’s artistic gymnastics but could not release the results. Lawn bowls results were also unofficially announced.
