MRT Shutdown Earlier

Share the #GYMBFF:

People got late (like me). People had to spend more in terms of time, fare, deducted wages due to tardiness, etc. Meetings had to be rescheduled, employees had to make up by leaving work today a little later than usual.

Late for Work and It’s Your Fault!

I missed the MRT skipping train in Cubao by a mere 2 seconds and had to wait for 40 more minutes and for the 8th train that can fit us. 2 seconds turned into 2400 seconds.

No Roundtrip, Yellow Boys from DOTC, Lost in MRT Station

Share the #GYMBFF:

Funny to think that we need the yellow boys just to make us fall in line properly. Hay Pinoy! I hope we’re not spending extra taxpayers money to pay these yellow boys whose job is to make us fall in line.

MRT Station Quick Facts: Santolan to Taft

Share the #GYMBFF:

Need I say more for this station? It is the second and last underground MRT station that gets you through the heart of Makati CBD, along Ayala Ave. The MRT exits you to SM Makati (too bad it does not have cinemas) which is then beside Glorietta, Landmark and Greenbelt.

MRT Station Quick Facts: North Ave to Cubao

Share the #GYMBFF:

My personal favorite, one of the biggest MRT stations I have seen in terms of queueing area for ticket booths and turnstiles. The station is also designed such that you can switch lanes (SB to NB v.v.) without exiting the station, you just need to go a floor below the platforms.

Montalban Anti-Colorum Campaign

Share the #GYMBFF:

With the current number of shuttle vans and SUVs (both franchised and colorum), waiting time in shuttle terminals during rush hours is still significant. As such, with all the vehicles combined, colorum or legitimate, the demand is still greater than supply especially at rush hour.

Missing the Old Learning Attitude: Self-Study vs Post-Grad

Share the #GYMBFF:

I guess the conscious effort to learn while working is pretty tiring, since you’re doing a lot of things and tend to miss the bigger picture, the learning points. At school, the atmosphere is really academic, everyone is attempting to learn, everyone is teachable.

I have always been a MWC fan but their share prices have not moved much in the past years. 17 levels at 2007, then 10 levels during the global recession, then now at 19.

No Honda or Mitsubishi Taxi Cabs in the Philippines

Share the #GYMBFF:

We all know that a lot of taxis use the Toyota brand, and from time to time some Nissan, Hyundai and Kia. But in my experience, I have yet to see taxis using the Honda or Mitsubishi or Mazda brand in the Philippines.
