MRT Fare Hike and Fair Government Subsidy

Share the #GYMBFF:

The point on fare subsidy where the government in fact shoulders a big portion of the train fares, to keep the fares affordable for the public (~Php10-14 range). They say that at this fare rate, subsidy per passenger is already around ~Php30-40 and this translates to Php7-8B annual subsidy.

In 2007, I started to notice a siomai foodcart in a nearby mall. Every Sunday, after mass, I’d go there to buy siomai and I liked its taste and flavor. Even their garlic and chili is unique and tasty.

For parents out there whose children are of age to go to school. Such parents, whether they like it or not, will need to entrust their children to society, to the educational system, even to the manong driver who drives the school bus.

It was proven effective in terms of improving overall performance of the brain and the senses, and that is is even recommended to allow power naps at the workplace (sounds like a perfect idea to me).
