    I've had the same experience at Why Not and eventually learned that the pizzas prepared in advance and frozen.
    An acceptable answer in my opinion as removing olives wouldn't necessarily remove the taste of them.

    If you dont like olives, simply take them off. They will leave no residual taste. Cant understand what all the fuss is about.

    If they were cooked on the pizza they (and their strong oils) definitely will leave a taste, especially to a person with a aversion to them. I used to be the same with green olives, hated them on pizza and definitely knew when they had been picked off. I'm the same way with bell peppers and cucumbers (raw, cooked or pickled) added to recipes (though I have no problem eating them on their own). I absolutely despise any food they come in contact with and I immediately know when something has been cooked with them in the same pan.

    However, Why Not has plenty of Pizza options, if they won't take ingredients off or add them then order something else or go somewhere else. You have to adapt in the Philippines and if you are a picky eater you are going to have a rough time.

    Try a Grey Goose Martini, shaken not stirred, with two green olives and you may start liking olives,

    The second person that said they are prepared in advance and frozen (not the same restaurant)...must apologize to someone later when I stated that it made no sense. Still doesn't make sense but it was decades ago when I worked pizza restaurants as a young guy and it was not in the PI and fresh was the only way to go. Plus I'm not looking to ever open a restaurant (Kudos to those that do).

    Off topic but had anyone tried the tuna kimchi at Mifune? That really rocks.

    Freshly made or not I have always found why not pizza to be quite good. No way it could fit in my calorie budget these days (probably 400 calories per slice) along with the alcohol I consume (minimum of 600 calories per night) but in my fat-boy times I would eat an entire pizza and half a liter of rum and coke by myself.

    Tuna kimchi on the other hand...I'll take the protein (and micro-dose of mercury) any day of the week. If you find out if it is any good let us know.

    White people with stop for pedestrians to cross the streets in Dumaguete. White people will stay in their own traffic lane, they will not pass on the right side of the road. They will not pass on bridges. They will not form traffic snakes to cross the lane.
    White people will protect the Philippines from any foreign invasion or attack.
    White people will send Philippine soldiers to the US for military training and schools.
    White people will give visas to Philippine citizens to attend schools, immigrate and marriage.
    White people will send monetary assistance to the Philippines.
    White people started Silliman University.
    White people removed the Spanish yoke from the Philippines.

    A bit strong, not as bad as the Germans in the 30’s. Many of us have wives or partners that are not white and children that are half, and that may override some of the other perturbations mentioned, for some of us!

    I may, I may not.
    I definitely don't stay in my traffic lane if it doesn't suite me and I pass far more vehicles on the right than I do the left.
    I do.
    I don't even know what this means...but it sounds fun.
    No I won't. Well, I would but it would cost them a small fortune.
    I wouldn't.
    I would deny most.
    Not unless it directly benefits myself.
    And? What about the rest of the universities?
    Lol

    I don't like this racial crap. Knock it off. Everything you just mentioned could be done or not done by any person of any race.

    You must be a holdout from the British Raj. I don't know what you mean by "White People" but the parts referring to individuals doesn't ring true. The parts that seem more nationalistic doesn't seem to encompass "White People" but rather seems to be referring to the US, not white people, white people have no more claim on it than any other color of people and is a mixed bag of true and not true, the last sentence though is pretty laughable and pretty offensive to the Filipinos, lucky that most have a pretty good sense of humor about these things.
