Poorly Implemented Combo Box

I was registering for an account at a local auction site (which shall remain nameless), the zip code combo box threw me off:

It's actually displaying the ZIP codes of locations in Quezon City in alphabetical order. I think the dev forgot to put the location name somewhere there e.g.

Alicia (1105)

Amihan (1102)

Apolonio Samson (1106)

and so on...

I'm still wondering how 801 got there, though.

Googled "manila zip codes". First hit has ZIP codes per municipality, arranged by location alphabetically.

Wala lang... nakakabobo kasi pag-draft ng prototypes. Tinopak ako last week at linagay ko lahat ng country + country code sa mga country code dropdown list ng screens ko instead of just putting 5-10 country codes. Kaya yun, familiar yung pattern sa combo box sa pic sa taas.
