Earlier that night when we passed by Scooby's, we noticed a kitten which was about a week old crying on top of a garbage bin. It was obviously hungry and homeless. My heart really went out for that kitten but with three dogs and four cats that we already have at home, it would be not within our capacity to take in another pet. So we just passed it and proceeded to Jollibee at the opposite side of the road. We were seated close to the window where we could see everything outside from the inside. In fact, we could even see the trash bin where the kitten was. As we were about to eat our food, we noticed two foreigners (from the white race) stooping to have a look at the kitten. They were obviously talking about the plight of the kitten. Then we saw the man (about 28 years old) pick up the kitten which he placed on the pavement. He tried to feed the kitty with what he was drinking at that time but the kitten did not seem to want it. Meanwhile, the man's companion, a pretty lady about his age, was clearly begging him to go already. Obviously, the man was not in the mood to leave the kitten just like that. Then we saw the lady gesticulating and trying to convince him to let it go, but still the man kept hold on the kitten and even tried to talk to it. Exasperated, the woman left him and the guy was left behind with the kitten. We saw how the man was closely studying the kitten's face which probably made him decide to take it with him. Seeing that was like seeing the most beautiful thing we've ever seen in years. We felt happy for the cat for the man did not pass his opportunity to help a poor creature. Lovely.

A friend of ours was halfway through his food when he noticed something black on his spoon which he was about to put in his mouth. Luckily he took one hard look at it and confirmed his suspicion. It was one humongous fly that obviously did not make it when it landed on the food. Just how did that huge fly get into his food? There are only three possible reasons: One, it must have landed on the food while it was being cooked. Two, it must have been there among the food ingredients where it met its death or three, the cook must have deliberately placed it there to spite the owner. Ewww....whatever the reason, that food hut would have been as dead as the fly had we made the report to proper authority, but we did not because we're not eating there for the rest of our lives even if the food were for free. When you come to Dumaguete, beware of that food hut near the dockside because you just don't know what you will find in your food. That is, if you're lucky to even scrutinize the food. Usually we just eat and eat without actually poking or looking at what's in there. So crazy.
