The management of Whitewoods Convention and Leisure Hotel has categorically denied in a letter to the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) that it served “kikiam” to Southeast Asian Games athletes billeted in its hotel in Cavite.
Whitewoods president and chairman of the board Edgardo M. Capulong told PSC chairman and SEAG chief of mission William Ramirez that what were actually served the athletes for breakfast were “chicken sausage.”
“We have proof of this and the PHISGOC food audit team in the hotel that are on top of the food inspection during, before and after cooking and during meal time, can attest to the fact that it was not ‘kikiam.”
Capulong was reacting to news reports in which the Philippine football team coach Marnelo Dimzon alleged that they were served “kikiam,” a Chinese dimsum of low nutritional value.
“The other Pinoy athletes also know thay they ate chicken sausage. We never serve kikiam because we do not have it and it is not in our menu,” the Whitewood official said in his letter to Ramirez dated 25 November.
“Our food serving is generous because we decided a free and open buffet service complete with egg omelet station that is not part of our contract,” he continued.
Capulong said the hotel chose to respond to the accusation professionally by not going to the media but by responding through official communication with the SEAG organizers.
Nonethelesss, Capulong lamented the actuations of some athletes who chose to rant on social media instead of bringing their concerns to the hotel and the SEAG representatives present in their facility.

WORD WAR: Aquino asked Cayetano to 'google’ all answers to his questions

Former President Benigno Aquino III and Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, composite photo from GMA Network and The continuing word war between former President Noynoy Aquino and Department of Foreign Secretary (DFA) Alan Peter Cayetano has filled social media with riddles and word plays, including ‘hairstyles’ only to prove whose administration poses the appropriate TRANSPARENCY in its dealings with Beijing on the disputed waters. To recall, Cayetano challenged Aquino on Tuesday to ask former DFA Secretary Albert Del Rosario of how well he handled ‘transparency’ with China under his watch. Cayetano’s latest remark against Aquino came in response to the latter’s suggestion that their methods of disclosure concerning Scarborough Shoal should be as “transparent as his hairstyle”. In an open letter dedicated to Aquino on Friday, Cayetano responded, "While we both lost some of our hair, your administration lost control of Scarborough and a

He said that this makes it P48 per kilo. " So yang P120 PER SALOP eh ang katumbas nyan ay P48 PER KILO pala ," he said.
