Last week I went to Baguio with my friends to have spend the week end there. I have notice many things just like you see Korean every where there. But the most I never forget is when I eat at one the the restaurant there. When I enter that restaurant I notice a big bulletin with is written "No Smoking". After maybe 30 minutes inside the restaurant a group of people enter that restaurant and they seat and order they need. What I have notice is that beside the warning that "No Smoking" is not allowed they still smoked so I asked the Manager why they smoke in a non smoking place the manager told me that the person who smoke are a Governor and his bodyguard. The I realized that I realize that If you are a politician of belong to the upper class of this country you can do what you want. Is this the society we have now in our country people that have very much know about the law they are the one who did no follow the law in a very simple law in a small place like a restaurant......

I think the best way that the Governor can be taught a lesson is by telling it to the media or by telling your story to a lot of people so that they will not vote for the person. Some people are just so arrogant with their power that they easily forget that it is the people who put them in the position in the first place. If I were in your place, I would probably make innuendos (indirect hints) to the governor if he was an earshot from me. Lol. If he tells me off, I would make it a point to ruin his reputation. It is such a simple rule, a good leader should lead by example.

Well that's common in Philippines. When you belong in upper society, with power and lots of money then you don't need to follow the simple rules or you always get exempted. It's ashamed, coz they are showing a bad example. He's a governor, he should know how to follow simple rules but Not. I don't know what's going on in Philippines now, it's crazy!

This is the common thing happen my friend whether you like it or not. This is the problem of our people, we can make laws but we can't strictly follow.Some even of our law maker are law breaker...this is the naked truth...I am sorry for that..

That's sad, nobody should be above the law. If the publicly flaunt that they don't need to follow the small laws like no smoking, doesn't it make you wonder what laws they don't follow when nobody is watching?
