My apologies. A few readers have continued to experience problems while trying to access the marketmanila.com site. It seems to be under near constant “attack” from folks who wish to take advantage of the number of hits the site gets daily to do something evil. As a result, my tech guy who helps me with the site, has instituted a number of immediate temporary measures to prevent any further damage to the site. As of today, the contact form has been removed, as it was viewed to be a “way into” the site. So you cannot send me a private email, just leave comments. Some other features are currently being revised as well. As such, you may experience some features not working properly over the next few days. All of this in the name of fortifying the borders on this very old site. The alternative to the frustration was to shut it down, but that would be like giving into morons. And we try not to do that here. :) So bear with us as we try and fix things further. And if it’s any consolation for the nitwits foisting this on innocent sites like marketmanila.com, you are now costing me money to fend you off. Not a massive sum, but annoying. If there is indeed karma in the world, and I believe there is, I hope you spill a cup of piping hot coffee from your favorite fastfood place right onto your nuts for a morning bath while you commute to work. Assuming you have real work.
Meanwhile, on a lighter note, and if you don’t have a chance to visit Zubuchon Mango Avenue which is currently under expansion and will double in size in about 3 weeks time, you would have seen the following crew created notices/signs and have to think, “yup, even Marketman’s crew is starting to think like him…”
On the outdoor window facing the street, the tarpaulin says:
“We are expanding… more piggies coming soon.” With large pig logo and two small piglets trailing behind…
On the indoor divider towards the new expansion area:
“More piggies are coming soon… so please bear with our labor pains. We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience. Thank you.”
Work on our third restaurant in Mactan has also started, and we expect to open there by mid-December.
