‘Overpriced food’ in Virgin island goes viral; Panglao mayor orders investigation to check food prices

Published

The local government of Panglao, Bohol became aware of the viral post of a netizen named “Vilma Uy” after she shared on social media the outrageous bill for the seafood they ordered at a resort while on vacation in the Virgin Islands.

In this viral Facebook post by Vilma, she expressed shock when the total price of the food for their lunch reached ₱26,100 when they visited the island.

Virgin Island is one of the islands that are often visited by tourists who want to do island hopping in Bohol because of its clear water and white sands.

“Ingon ani na diay kamahal ang pagkaon sa virgin island, bohol? Just airing the sentiments of my friend who recently enjoying their vacation in bohol pero na shock sila sa ila bill, mahal pa sa buffet sa HENNAN resort. pls note : 13 pax cla lahat,” she said in her FB post.

The most expensive ones are oysters, kilaw fish, and scallops worth ₱3,000. They reporttedly calmed down and even haggled over the price but eventually paid just the same.

They did not say if they asked the seller beforehand how much the price of each order was.

Netizens also questioned why their bill was listed only on ordinary paper. Some also said that their food is even more expensive than in the hotel.

Bohol Governor Aris Aumentado ordered to investigate the report of this alleged overpricing. According to the governor’s Facebook post, local officials of Panglao and owners of the resorts will meet regarding the controversy.

“Inutusan na natin ang SP na magsagawa ng imbestigasyon sa pangyayari at pagkakataon na rin ito upang makabuo tayo ng isang resolution or ordinance na makakapagbigay ng proteksyon sa ating mga turista,” Aris said.

“Dahil matagal nang panahon na may iilang negosyante ang nananamantala sa mga turista ng Panglao,” he added.

Meanwhile, a  netizen shared a list (breakdown) shared by a netizen Ayaw Pataka, apparently, of the quantity of the food the group ordered. “Sa subrang dami ba naman ng inorder nila. Tira tia na lang ang pinost,”  Nancy Bataleran expressed on the screenshot she shared.

FB page, Camp Review Philippines, shared a video showing the selling of seafood, as well as drinks and buko, in the Virgin islands.

A Jericho Rosales Lookalike

On Facebook, social media user Hyobz Perez uploaded some photos of him and a few friends with a Jericho Rosales lookalike, plus a solo of the guy whom they saw as he was strolling at an amusement park in Monkayo, Davao de Oro.

He said in the caption of his post,“Sir Bhai with Kuys Echo ng Monkayo, Davao de Oro,”

Apparently, their group’s attention was captured as the guy in the park would instantly bring to your mind the lead actor of the teleserye “Halik” which was a huge hit to TV viewers. A “Kuya Echo”lookalike indeed as narrated by another netizen who disclosed they were neighbors.

Netizens commented on the post that went viral; with some even joking and tagging the actor so the latter would know he has a “twin brother” in Davao.

Netizens also tagged the award-winning magazine show of GMA Network, “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” or KMJS.

Life after presidency?

Ngayong pribado nang mamamayan ang dating pangulo ng bansa, ibinida ni Senador Bong Go sa isang Facebook post ang masayang pamamasyal ni Rodrigo R. Duterte sa Davao City gamit ang kanyang motorsiklo.

Ayon sa Senador na kilalang kaibigan at avid supporter ni Duterte, muling nagmomotorsiklo ang dating pangulo at alkalde ng kanilang bayan.

Aniya sa post, “Na-miss ni Tatay Digong ang mamasyal gamit ang kaniyang motor tulad ng ginagawa niya noon bilang alkalde.” 

Gaya ng mga lumabas na kuwento noong mayor pa ito, kung saan sinasabing kahit madaling araw ay naglilibot ito sa Davao upang personal na makita ang kalagayan ng kapaligiran, ngayong private citizen na ito ay nais pa rin nitong maglibot-libot doon.

“Ngayon na pribadong mamamayan na siya, hindi niya matiis na hindi mag-ikot at pumasyal kahit na madaling araw na. Nakihalubilo rin siya sa mga sundalo, pulis at security guards na kanyang nadaanan at niyaya silang kumain ng durian,” dagdag pa ni Sen Go.

Ang kanya namang bilin dito, “Ride safe Mayor Rody!”

Bumuhos naman ang komento ng mga netizens sa post ni Sen. Go kung saan ay mahihinuha na mga suppoters ito ng dating administrasyon.

“Missing OUR BEST PRESIDENT so much! Please be still our GUIDE. Seems very different without you”

“Keep safe and enjoy your life tatay digs..we love u po still our best president ever in the Philippine.”

“Wish he is still the President !!! A President who stood by his words and fought for the good of his constituents.. Afraid to no one as he is always at the right path… Foreign leaders respected him not because he is the President but because of how he enforced and fight for things he believes right and just !!”

“Love you tatay Digong nakakamiss k po (heart emojis) Bong Go Maraming salamat po s patuloy n pag tulong niyo po s ate po namin panganay n may sakit po patuloy n sinusupportahan ng malasakit center God Bless po s inyo ni Tatay Digong.”

Marami ring nagpasalamat kay Sen Go sa paghahatid niya ng updates kaugnay sa latest kay Tatay Digong.

Inihayag ni Herlene Nicole Budol sa kanyang pinakabagong vlog kung saan ipinasilip niya ang kanyang bagong house and lot, ang tunay na dahilan kung bakit siya sumali sa Bb. Pilipinas pageant.

Ibinahagi niya kung ano ang nag-udyok sa kanya na sumali at kung bakit siya nag-aalangan dai na sumali sa kompetisyon.

“Eto ‘yung unang dahilan kung bakit ako sumali ng Bb. Pilipinas. ‘Yung unang tao na nag-push sa akin, nakakita ng potential bilang beauty queen ay si Sir Wilbert talaga,” aniya.

“Sabi ko nung una, ayoko dahil ayoko talaga. So parang kabaliktaran siya ng buhay ko. Hindi ako sobrang pa-girl, hindi ako demure, hindi ako proper, hindi ako ‘yun, at eto ‘yung dahilan kung bakit niya ako na-push.”

“Ang unang minotivate niya sa’kin,’Nak sumali ka, hindi naman para sa’kin to eh, para sa’yo to eh’. Sabi ko ‘Ma ‘wag, baka mapahiya lang kita’. Sabi ko, ‘hindi ako magaling na tao, hindi ako para d’yan.”

Kuwento pa niya ay hindi raw siya tinigilin ni Wilbert na i-push siya lagi na lumahok.

“Alam n’yo kung ano ang ginawa niya, hindi talaga siya tumigil na i-push ako everyday, kung magkikita kami. Sabi niya sa akin kaya mo ‘yan. Alam niyo inoperan niya ako, gagawin ko sayo ‘yung ginawa ko kay Madam Inutz, pumasok siya ng PBB, bibilhan ko siya ng bahay. Pumasok ka ng BBP, bibilhan kita ng bahay. Sino ba namang tanga ang hindi papayag dyan. ‘Yun ‘yung unang dahilan, praktikal na tayo, ‘di naman kami mayaman ng pamilya ko, kung nakikita n’yo naman sa vlog namin. Wala kaming kisame, mainit ‘yung bahay namin, magulo ‘yung bahay namin.”

Matatandaan naman na humakot ng special awards si Herlene “Hipon” Budol sa coronation night ng Bb. Pilipinas 2022 matapos siyang itanghal na 1st runner up.

Iniaalay niya rin para sa kaniyang lolo at pumanaw na lola ang pagsali niya sa Bb. Pilipinas dahil sila raw ang inspirasyon niya.

“To my Priceless Nanay Bireng at Tatay Oreng. Salamat sa magandang ngiti at inspirasyon para ilaban ko ang prestihiyosong patimpalak sa national pageant ng Bb. Pilipinas 2022.”
