MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A strange phenomenon is happening in Manila. In just the last few weeks, divorce cases have piled up in the courts which is very unusual for a Catholic country like the Philippines.
The Adobo Chronicles launched an investigation into this phenomenon, interviewing the spouses who initiated the divorce cases.
We discovered a common denominator among those who filed cases: their spouses had, at one point, checked in at a Manila hotel — Victoria Court.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the hotel raffled off new iPhone 7’s among those who have recently checked in at their property. Then, it posted the names of the lucky winners on a giant billboard for all the world to see. It was inevitable that the winners’ wives and husbands saw the billboard as they drove along Manila’s major thoroughfares.
Moral of the story: don’t give away iPhone 7’s!
