Coup d’etat attempt and curfew in Philippines

My first coup d’etat attempt, interesting. I got the news through friends’ twitter during lunch, then back to the office and business as usual, just following the news. It made me notice how exaggerated the newspapers are in other sides of the world.

The worst part is that the government declared curfew from 12 to 5am, breaking all my plans for tonight 😦 the bars close and back to the hotel. An interesting week after a close typhoon, and a 6.0 earthquake.

And tomorrow is holiday, Bonifacio‘s day, Philippine revolutionary leader against the Spanish. What some forgot to say is that he was killed by order of another revolutionary leader, Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the republic.
