BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – Local officials in the summer capital of the Philippines are not content with banning cussing in public. They want to ban PDA – that’s public display of affection – in the city’s parks.
While the cussing prohibition is already law, the PDA ban is still in the works, thanks to a new ordinance that was passed on first reading prohibiting kissing, petting, necking, and lying down together within the premises of the children’s park at Burnham . It was authored by Councilor Joel Alangsab, who says his proposal is aimed at protecting children from seeing lewd acts at the park.
So, if the proposal becomes law, we advise Baguio residents and tourists alike that when they feel like engaging in PDA while visiting Burnham and other public parks, they should bring a blanket, shawl or umbrella to cover up their lewd acts. That would make Baguio city officials really happy.
