BREAKING NEWS – President Benigno Aquino III has reportedly made an alarming and controversial move by visiting Le Cirque restaurant in New York, on the 2nd day of his US Trip, and then asked for directions to a local video game store.
An employee from the famous restaurant in Park Avenue, said that the entourage of the Philippine delegation made a sudden stop at their establishment. “The window of the limousine bearing the Philippine flag suddenly opened and a woman with a different color streak of hair asked me for directions to Gamestop,” said Melisa Denzer, an employee of Le Cirque. Gamestop is an American video game and entertainment software retailer.
When shown a photo of Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman for confirmation, Ms. Denzer said: “That’s her, that’s her!”
“I pointed the way, which was only a couple of blocks away and I think I heard your President said to the driver go! go!” , added Melisa.
Our follow-up investigations at the said video game store confirmed that the President indeed went there and shockingly spent around USD 20,000 worth of video game items and accessories.
An employee at Gamestop, Jamie Rushford told us: “Mr. Aquino immediately asked if we had the Nintendo 3DS as well as the Microsoft Kinect, Playstation Move and various titles for video games like Gears of War 3, Little Big Planet 2 and New Super Mario Bros Wii.”
“He also bought 2 copies of each game he bought,” added Jamie. When asked why, the President apparently said that it was for his nephew Josh.
“He was like a kid at a candy store”, quips a customer who was at the store when the President was there. “He certainly knows his video games”, added another.
We managed to get a copy of the receipt after we rummaged through the trash can outside the establishment. You will not believe what our President is capable of spending:
