UPDATE (From Manolo Quezon III’s Twitter): ALERT: This image is not a scan or in any way the actual Le Cirque bill. I’ts an extrapolation to suggest how the tab could have been…racked up.

By the way, $19,866 is about P952,177.39 according to Currency Converter, at 1 USD = P47.9300.

Naalala ko tuloy how, in 2005, a taxi driver who chatted me up told me that he used to be Gloria Arroyo’s driver, back in the days when FG and GMA were mere newly weds.  GMA liked to party, he said, and he would sit in the car for hours waiting for his party-loving boss.  He said he resigned even before GMA entered politics.

During the 2004 elections, in one of GMA’s campaign sorties, they met again. GMA recognized him and gave him P10,000.  He seemed grateful.
