Most expensive board and lodging

I've read in the news yesterday that the Abu Sayaff has released the cameraman of Ces Drilon. For those of you who lives under a rock, Ces Drilon is an ABS-CBN news reporter that was recently kidnapped by the Abu Sayaff. ABS-CBN has a no ransom policy, however, one of the politicians involved in the negotiations apparently paid P2 Million pesos. They called it a "board and lodging" fee.

WTF? 2 million for "board and lodging"? It's a rather expensive price compared with checking in with a five star resort in the country. One will wonder if the Abu Sayaff has entered the resort business already. Well, for 2 million board and lodging I hope that their customers would at least get a SPA treatment.
