ARTICLE | Egg Throwing, Anyone?


So I was in a cafe with some of my colleagues; sitting and enjoying our coffee when a group of these minors threw eggs in our direction.

Unlucky me, I got hit at the back. I was shocked. This was the first time I got hit by an egg. 

I removed my jacket to wipe away the egg stain, when suddenly the bunch in car came back and this time throwing water to us and as they sped away they were jeering and laughing as if it's the most exciting moment of their lives.



Our group before the egg frenzy started.

What I don't understand is how these kids are able to do such offenses?

This baffles me. 

Earlier in the news, two Saudi kids were hit by a car and died instantly. The driver was also a Saudi. What does this have to say about the whole situation?

Overall, I think this incident just showed me how unfit I am in this land. I know that I share the same sentiment with many Filipinos. I know that the only reason why Filipinos choose to stay is because they feel like they have no option and that this is the only available opportunity.

But hopefully, in the future, there will be more jobs in the Philippines so we do not have to experience any egg throwing ruckus in a foreign country.
