Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves. Some people wear their houses on their wrists. What? OK, maybe not their houses. Somebody else's house then. No, that's not right either. How about wearing the equivalent of one house on one's wrist?
If that is confusing to you, then perhaps you were not able to watch the marathon-no-lunch-break senate inquiry today featuring the infamous PNP top brass involved in the yet-another- scandalous-and-contemptible behavior by government officials in our great and glorious nation, to copy Meloink's description of our country.
I am not going to write about the details of that story that is fodder for another telenovela in this melodrama loving republic. You can read the gory details here and there . Mainly because I never knew until today that such incredulous things exist, I am going to write about the outrageously priced Roger Dubuis watches that said PNP top brass was supposed to buy with some of the millions of pesos worth of euros he was carrying on this Moscow trip.

A 45-millimeter stainless steel case surrounds a dramatic black dial with silver-tone hands, white Roman numeral hour markers, and a red, sweeping second hand. Signature triple lugs on the deployment buckle rubber wristband ensure a secure fit, while the precision of automatic movement keeps you on-track.
