P-Noy gets a burger in Makati

Of course, we know this sort of news doesn’t contribute to economic growth…but we were curious.

“President Noynoy Aquino, with a few Cabinet members in tow, the President ventured to Burger Bar in Makati City last Thursday night, May 22, and chowed down on a cheeseburger,” reports Genalyn Kabiling in Manila Bulletin.

Aquino was accompanied by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr., Presidential Communications Operations Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr., Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman, Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Teresita Deles, Presidential Management Staff chief Julia Abad, and a few security personnel.

Aquino reportedly ate a classic quarter-pounder cheeseburger with cheddar cheese, onion, lettuce, onions, and sauce. His Cabinet members had burgers as well.
