Agriculture Chief Emmanuel Piñol wrote on Facebook about an expensive gift he received from one of the executives of a large agricultural company.


At first, he didn’t pay much attention to the box with the lavish gift. He often receives things that commemorate events and formal meetings he has attended as a courtesy.

The box was with other mementos and trinkets he had received. However, he was surprised to find out that the box contained a Rolex Submariner.

The agriculture secretary realized that the value of the watch was P450,000 after doing some research online.

Piñol then decided to return the gift as it was against the law.

However, the thought of keeping such a luxurious gift did cross the secretary’s mind.

After all who wouldn’t want to own a Rolex?
