A TOURISM guy was heard airing his complaint of a restaurant selling famous chicken inasal. When the waiter asked him what drink he wanted and he said "water," the waiter answered back, "Sorry sir our water is not filtered." Oh, oh, so that meant that you have to pay for a bottle of water which is expensive, the tourism man told his companions.

This is one example of an establishment that sucks out all the money from their customer that even water is for sale by force, he insisted. And he asked why was this issued a sanitary permit by the government if it could not provide filtered water for the safety of its customers, the man continued to grumble.

When asked by his companion, he said the establishment is a nice place located specializing in chicken inasal at 18th street of Bacolod just across a gasoline station, the man said. City health officers, wake up! he added.
