3 Cost Effective Ways to Solve Metro Manila's Traffic Problem

The Facebook page of ANC 24/7 is asking for its reader's suggestion on how to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem.

This got me thinking, "what is the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem?" It's easy to make suggestions, what's hard is the implementation and the cost of implementation. So what is the the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem and the most cost effective solution?

Punitive Fines
First of all, any implementation will definitely cost money, a lot of money. The cause of the traffic mess is the people themselves so it's only right that those causing the traffic problem should be fined and the fine should hurt. That way, the fines will pay for the cost of enforcing the law.
The fines should start at P500 and goes up every week if you don't pay it within 15 days. To enforce this and prevent people from ignoring the fine. It will be tied to their driver's license or car registration. They cannot renew their d…

Mayweather vs Pacquiao

I just saw this on the Philippine Star. Looks like the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao is finally going to happen.

MANILA, Philippines - Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants the fight against Manny Pacquiao, and said the ball is now in the hands of the Filipino superstar.

The undefeated American finally broke his silence following reports or speculations that negotiations are on for the great showdown between him and Pacquiao.

Mayweather said on Twitter he’s hoping for the fight to happen on May 5. He said he can sign the contract anytime, and expects Pacquiao to follow.

“May 5, 2012,” was his latest tweet as of 4 p.m. yesterday (Manila time).

He must be looking forward to the day he gets to fight Pacquiao and finally provide the answer as to who the greatest boxer of this era is.

Some consider Pacquiao as the reigning pound-for-pound champion, and the others consider Mayweather as the best, considering Pacquiao’s performance against Juan Manuel Marquez last Nov. 12.

Joey De Leon was a guest on The Buzz on Nov 27, 2011. He was interviewed by Toni Gonzaga.

This interview is really funny, especially the part about KC Concepcion near the 14 minute mark. I love Joey De Leon, one of the funniest man in Pinoy showbiz.

More Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago Pick Up Lines

Back in September, I posted a video of Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago doing a funny speech about some pick-up lines. Recently, people have been Tweeting some of their pick-up lines.

TV reporter - Cheche Lazaro

The villians - Max Alvarado, Larry "Pipoy" Silva and I don't know the guy is with the eye patch.

Grandmother Aurelia Matias teaches Facebook users, TV viewers ‘true love’

From the Inquirer.
About 60,000 strangers helped Lola Aurelia find her missing husband.

In return, the 78-year-old woman taught them a lesson about love.

Aurelia Matias’ poignant quest to find her beloved Luis, 78, who had been missing for weeks in the streets of Manila, captured the imagination of thousands after a street photographer snapped her picture and posted it on Facebook (FB).

It quickly went viral as more than 60,000 Facebook users shared, reposted and retweeted the black-and-white photo showing a bespectacled Lola Aurelia, her back facing the camera with the missing person poster pinned to her dress.

With the help of big TV networks covering the unfolding story, a search was launched. Finally, on Tuesday evening, Lola Aurelia found Lolo Luis in a dramatic reunion near the Quirino station of the Light Railway Transit on Taft Avenue.

“Many thanks to the many people helping me. They did not let me down,” she said in an interview aired over “24 Oras,” the evening newscast of GM…

Maid who poisons employers bolts jail

From the Philippine Star.

MANILA, Philippines - A woman convicted of poisoning then robbing 10 families she worked for as a maid has escaped from the Women’s Correctional facility Saturday, a police official told The STAR yesterday.

Senior Superintendent Nelson Yabut, who arrested Anamae Livrando in 2008 after she poisoned eight Filipino-Chinese families in Binondo, said operatives of the Women’s Correctional recovery unit have asked his assistance in tracking down the convict after she was discovered missing in her cell.

“I was informed that Anamae was able to scale the high wall of the penitentiary and escape unnoticed,” Yabut said.

Livrando, dubbed by the police as “Poison Ivy,” also escaped from the Manila City Jail, where she was detained while her cases of frustrated homicide and robbery were being tried following her arrest.

She was rearrested by Quezon City policemen in August 2011 after she poisoned two more families and was convicted for multiple cases of frustrated homicide …

Arroyo Faces More Troubles

As if her troubles were not enough, former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will be slapped Tuesday with a civil case for her alleged role in the gruesome Maguindanao massacre, a lawyer of the victims said Monday.

Arroyo, who is under hospital arrest in Taguig City on charges of electoral sabotage, is also facing plunder charges in the Office of the Ombudsman.

A lawmaker and two other complainants said that while Arroyo had been charged with electoral sabotage, there was still a need to make her accountable for alleged acts of corruption during her nine-year tenure in Malacañang.

The three asked the Office of the Ombudsman on Monday to immediately resolve the plunder case against Arroyo over the scuttled $329-million National Broadband Network (NBN) deal.

Harry Roque, who represents the kin of 13 media workers and two bystanders slain in the massacre on Nov. 23, 2009, said his clients would ask the Quezon City Regional Trial Court to order the former P…
