Last weekend, all Manila was abuzz with the apparent suicide of an heir [ one of many ] to an old banking fortune.
With all that $$$ money, Why would he???
But I shouldn’t wonder. I’m actually related to him through the Gonzalez-Sioco-Rodriguez-Santos line.
If ever I will commit suicide, it will have to be with great style… I will make sure to book a suite at the Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris [ or at the Hotel Meurice like Amschel de Rothschild ], order up a storm of panfried “Foie Gras” and Chateau d’ Yquem, and bottles of “Cristal Roederer” champagne for good measure, promptly get a severe “stroke” brain attack, and pass away blissfully, comfortably, and stylishly on freshly ironed Porthault linens… *lolsz!*
That’s the way. Not at the Makati Medical Center, not at Saint Luke’s Medical Center, not even at the Asian Hospital. Terribly unchic.
