This year’s election campaign was a mixture of love and hate. We’ve seen how Filipinos defended their bets until the end.
During the height of election campaign last year, bakeshop owner Eliaquim Labang, promised to give away P5 million worth of cakes for free if Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte wins the 2016 presidential elections.
“Pag manalo si Duterte manok nyo guys, gagawa ako ng maraming cakes pinakamasarap sa cakes sa Pilipinas worth 5 Milyon para ipakain for free siguraduhin nyo lang manalo siya. Mark my word..,” said Labang on his post dated November 2015.
As fate would have it, Duterte wins the presidential elections and being true to his words, he said he will fulfill his promise “so long as Duterte will also deliver his promise to solve criminality in 3-6 months.”
On his Facebook post last Monday, Quim’s Cake showed that they were true to their word by letting 50 people get to their cakes every 1st and 15th of the month starting July until December 2016.

Obviously, the post has gone viral but even though it did, people were skeptical about it as any business would hurt should they shell out P5 million worth of cakes.
Meantime, others suggested giving the cakes to unfortunate people would be a great idea.
Nevertheless, he kept his word.
So, what do you think of his gesture? Do you think he could cope with the P5 million worth of cakes?
