Breaking: Canadian shot dead at EDSA traffic

Canadian trader shot dead in Pasay Philippine Daily Inquirer / 12:07 AM March 08, 2017 Police investigators are looking at a love triangle as a possible motive in the shooting of a Canadian national in Pasay City on Monday night. Nanthakumaran Kumarasamy, 55, a businessman, was shot while his vehicle was stuck in traffic on Edsa Extension going to Macapagal Avenue intersection about 6:30 p.m. Kumarasamy was driving a Suzuki APV (PHO 894) on the way home with his pregnant Filipino wife, Irene, 24, when the gunman approached the vehicle. The Canadian, a resident of Gatchalian Subdivision, Parañaque City, operated a cell phone shop at Victory Mall in Pasay City. Insp. Rolando Baula, chief of Pasay police investigation unit, said the shooting incident did not seem to be related to illegal drugs. Investigation showed that the victim was a “womanizer” who got married just last month and that this was also admitted by his widow, who was eight months pregnant, Baula told the Inquirer on Tuesday.—Erika Sauler   Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...

Blog:Momo Sushi

Maximize your lunch dollars at Momo Sushi by whatsinmymouth By Monica Urrutia     I chose Momo Sushi for two reasons: first, Momo used to be a nickname of mine in high school, and second, it was nearby and available when I had a hankering for sushi. My luck with random restaurant stops continues! I entered the sushi joint right around the time when they opened. It is a small space and has a communal bench set-up along one side of the wall and short bar stool set-up alongside the other outer wall. Had it been packed you could be rubbing elbows with folks, but if you are into meeting people then why not? I ordered Box D for less than $13 and added miso soup for a buck. This Box D however, is not the same as how they may describe it on their online menu. On the whole, it was a larger lunch then I was expecting. I think it was by accident but I was served two small bowls to start, one had the miso soup the other had the salad. I say accident because when I received the meal in the classic box style there was even more salad! I would rate this as a mmmmura dish given the number of items you get for the price. First, the salmon teriyaki on rice. The salmon was...
