Patriotism was never felt greater last May 9 during the national and local elections. With high hopes, people went out to vote for the leaders that they think will make the Philippines a great nation. In caring for the nation, several stores at SM City Lipa treated those who cared to vote. Starbucks for instance offered their roasted Caramel and Chocolate Hazelnut Macchiatos in buy one take one. Fruitas, also offered the same promo to its Coco-line shakes. Facial services were also marked down to 50% at Forever Flawless. So, aside from the fingers-with-indelible-ink photos which flooded our Facebook timelines last election, those fingers meant freebies also. Wonder what’s at stake on 2019?
