Fear and Loathing in Makati
I'm not quite sure if I saw anything quite so tasteless and immodest back when I was a scholar at Philippine Science High School.
It seems that money (multi-million peso Isuzu Trooper) and smarts ("Scholar on Board") don't guarantee taste or restraint..
EDIT: for the benefit of those who don't get why I call this "fear and loathing"
Philippine Science High School (colloquially known as "Pisay") is widely considered to be the best high school in the Philippines. And, more noteworthy, it's theoretically possible for anyone, regardless of income, to get in. When I was in PSHS, I had room-mates ranging from the extremely poor to the rather rich. I came from the lower end of this spectrum.

Scholar on Board
Now is that tasteless or what?
