In 2009, gov't spent 955.4K for GMA's dinner in NY


[1] In 2009, an activist group asked Malacañang to explain President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and her entourage's alleged $20,000 bill at a prestigious French restaurant in New York City during her recent US trip.
[2] The New York Post article, posted on August 7, 2009, said: "Philippines President Maria Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was at Le Cirque the other night with a large entourage enjoying the good life... Macapagal-Arroyo ordered several bottles of very expensive wine, pushing the dinner tab up to $20,000." This equivalent to almost one million in Philippine pesos (P955,400).
[3] Today, this amount is equivalent to around 1.06 million pesos.
