MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque today issued a clarification regarding the P1 increase in jeepney fare which went into effect yesterday in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The Malacañang statement came after the President’s hotline (8888) received numerous calls from irate Filipinos complaining about the rise in the cost for massage services.

Apparently, what many heard was that there was a P1 increase in pamasahe (massage) as opposed to a P1 increase in pasahe (fare).

Yet another case of ‘lost in translation.’
