Traffic, Flood and Garbage

It’s 11:30 on a Saturday morning and the traffic is at a standstill from Abad Santos to R. Papa.

This is self explanatory.

So is this…

And this. Add the never ending destruction of the roads that lead to singles lanes resulting in street chaos.

So where is the fun in the Philippines now? Or in this case Metro Manil

Jeepney Terminal

With the traffic build up on every major thoroughfare being a trending topic, we can’t help but notice that the center lane of J. Abad Santos Avenue near C. M. Recto Avenue is now a jeep terminal. Jeepneys going to Sta. Mesa, Quiapo, Mendiola, San Juan wait for passengers there. There is a policeman standing at the corner but it seems that he does not notice anything.
Magkano kaya kinikita ng mga naka assign diyan? If you are going to Binondo ang you pass that way, it will take you about 15-30 minutes before you will be able to leave the area.
I thought Manila is suppose to be looking forward, never backward but what about this? Isn’t this being backward?

Powernap @ BPI Tayuman

Went to BPI Tayuman to deposit a check. I arrived there at 12 noon with the number to be served at 136. Used the BEA and was given number 148. It’s now 12: 40 pm. Wrote this post after a 30-minute nap. There is only one teller and this teller would stand up and go do other things aside from accepting deposits and withrawals. She is now serving client 145.
I woke refreshed from my nap but now I’m getting pissed. Imagine wasting almost an hour sitting here. At least it’s cool and I

was able to nap but that is not an excuse for inefficiency. Now I’m hungry. Perhaps I should take another nap just like my seatmate.
WTF, BPI Tayuman?

ATM Scam

I was a victim of unauthorized withrawal from my ATM account at one of the oldest banks in the country. It happened to me twice. Since the bank claimed in its letter to me that it was a failure to dispense on the first incident, I requested to view the CCTV footage. It took about a month to have a positive response. Because of the long process, I was unable to view the footage because the hard disk was small so they overwrite it after a month. Now, I was able to view the second incident just this morning. What I saw withrawing at the ATM was male, between 20-30 years ild, wearing T-shirt with the country’s flag in front. The resolution was not that good so I cannot see the face clearly.
One thing is clear, however: it was not me who made the withrawal, he did two transactions so madami siya siguro card and I can also say that I don’t know him.
I asked the bank officer if I can recover my money. The response was: It is under investigation. So no clear cut answer. Baka puti na ang uwak kung magkalinaw ang usaping ito.

The Cybercrime Bill

This bill was passed into law in so short a time that majority were caught flatfooted. This law, I think, was the result of the Honorable Tito Sotto getting flak for his copied speech so he inserted the provision on libel. Was the bill studied thoroughly? I don’t think so.
Unlike the RH Bill, which up to now is still languishing in both houses, the Philippine Cybercrime Bill was signed into law without any problem. Some circles commented that this law make the SOPA/PIPA looks reasonable.
It has been 40 years since Martial Law. Are we going back in time and will loose again our freedom of speech and expression?
Remember these persons responsible for this debacle. Don’t re-elect them. They don’t deserve your trust especially your vote!

Tito Sotto’s view of RH Bill

In one of Senator Sotto’s speech, sinabi niya na ang mahihirap ay dapat mag anak ng marami. Itong mga anak na ito daw ang tutulong sa magulang nila para maka ahon sa kahirapan. Is he aerious about this claim? Perhaps the good senator should live with the poôr for about a week to experience how a family with 6, 8 or ten children live. Or he should ride the jeepney plying the Divisoria to Monumento route so that these children can give their regards to the good senator by giving him an envelope then would sing to him while the jeep passes by Hermosa or 5th Avenue. These chidren aree supposed to be in school and yet they are in the streets helping their parents na maka ahon sa kahirapan. be in in school and yet are in
