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…

Krissy, is it a deal or no deal?

I read this great blog about Kris Aquino resigning. It's pretty hilarious and I wish I thought of it.

Here's an excerpt.

It’s so nakaka-irritates na talaga, Krissy. I’m supposed to make pahinga na tonight, but all I see and hear in all forms of media is puro you na lang. And the media naman, they make kagat and treat you like a national issue. Who makes pake about your personal life ba?

Not me.

Who makes pake if James Yap makes subok to seduce you? Even though it’s so hirap to believe, like what Atty. Kapunan made sabi in a statement, you should be thankful. I mean, it’s not everyday naman that you get to be seduced, di ba? And to think na it’s James Yap pa who, you made sabi, was seducing you. You’re maswerte pa, girl!

Why don’t you give in na lang to his hilig? It’s not like rape naman, you know, if you’ll just make bigay your consent. Don’t be pakipot kasi, it’s not so bagay. And you’re definitely not 16 anymore, so don’t make arte like it’s your first time.

Jesuit Jokes

Found these good (and respectful!) jokes about Jesuits online, in honor of the new pope:

A Vision

A Jesuit, a Dominican, and a Franciscan were walking along an old road, debating the greatness of their orders. Suddenly, an apparition of the Holy Family appeared in front of them, with Jesus in a manger and Mary and Joseph praying over him. The Franciscan fell on his face, overcome with awe at the sight of God born in such poverty. The Dominican fell to his knees, adoring the beautiful reflection of the Trinity and the Holy Family. The Jesuit walked up to Joseph, put his arm around his shoulder, and said, “So, have you thought about where to send him to school?”


A Franciscan gets a haircut, and then asks how much he owes. The barber says he never charges clergy. The Franciscan thanks the barber and goes home. The next morning the barber finds a big basket of fresh bread from the Franciscans’ kitchens.

An Augustinian gets his hair cut by the same barber. The barber also tells him t…

Hokkien is the Chinese language that most Filipino-Chinese in the Philippines speak. It is also spoken in Malaysia, Singapore and parts of Indonesia. Here are some facts about Hokkien.

Hokkien is the sole surviving Chinese language from the Tang Dynasty 2,000 years ago.

If you're a Hokkien, do you know Hokkien is the Ancient Imperial Language of China - 2,000 Years Ago.

If you're a HOKKIEN Take Note !!

You'll be Surprised. You have heard it. You, your parents, or grandparents may still be speaking this ancient, archaic language!

Yes, it's HOKKIEN (Fujian/Minnan Hua 福建话/闽南话)

Hokkien is:

1. The surviving language of the Tang Dynasty (唐朝, 618 - 907 A.D.), China 's Golden Age of Culture.

Note: The Hokkien we hear today may have "evolved" from its original form 2,000 years ago, but it still retains the main elements of the Tang Dynasty Language.

2. Hokkiens are the surviving descendants of the Tang Dynasty -- When the Tang Dynasty collapsed, the people o…

Common Pinoy Mistakes

Oo nga naman.

Crime Story - Jackie Chan

Crime Story is a 1993 Hong Kong action-crime film directed by Kirk Wong, starring Jackie Chan, Kent Cheng, Blackie Ko and Christine Ng. Unlike nearly all other Jackie Chan films, which feature a combination of action and slapstick comedy, Crime Story is primarily a serious drama; while Chan's trademark stunts and martial arts are displayed in a few scenes, most of the film's action scenes revolve around firearms, with many people being shot and killed. Chan was allegedly uncomfortable with the dark tone, and had the film re-edited before release, causing a permanent rift between himself and Kirk Wong. The film is based on factual events surrounding of the 1990 kidnapping of a Chinese businessman Teddy Wang.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been chosen as the new Pope

TORONTO - Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been selected as the new pope.

Bergoglio, 76, has spent nearly his entire career at home in Argentina, overseeing churches and shoe-leather priests.

The archbishop of Buenos Aires reportedly got the second-most votes after Joseph Ratzinger in the 2005 papal election, and he has long specialized in the kind of pastoral work that some say is an essential skill for the next pope.

In a lifetime of teaching and leading priests in Latin America, which has the largest share of the world's Catholics, Bergoglio has shown a keen political sensibility as well as the kind of self-effacing humility that fellow cardinals value highly.

Bergoglio is known for modernizing an Argentine church that had been among the most conservative in Latin America.

He will be known as Pope Francis.

Pedestrian Lanes

From Bogart the Explorer from Davao City

Pedestrian Lanes were ancient land bridges marked by white stripes to grant safe passage for fragile creatures called Pedestrians (Walangis autosis) on highly dangerous roads.

However, Pedestrians evolved, or should I say, devolved into undisciplined maniacs and crossed roads beyond the boundaries and safety of the Pedestrian Lane spawning a new species called The Jaywalker (Bawaltumawidis nakamamatayis)

As time passed, Pedestrian lanes were forgotten and have slowly faded away in history. Some evidence to their existence can still be found in the urban jungle such as this one here that has been blocked by a center island wall...

Dragons Forever - Jackie Chan

I love Jackie Chan movies. The old ones were the best. We used to rent his movies in Betamax.

From Wikipedia

Dragons Forever is a 1988 Hong Kong martial arts action comedy film directed by Sammo Hung. The film stars Hung, Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao. The three actors, known colloquially as the Three Brothers, had attended the famous China Drama Academy together, and became members of the Seven Little Fortunes. This is the last film to date that all three have appeared in together.[1] It was directed by Sammo Hung and another former member of the Seven Little Fortunes, Corey Yuen (aka Yuen Kwai). Yet another classmate, Yuen Wah, plays the film's main villain, while legendary kickboxer Benny Urquidez plays his right hand man. Dragons Forever was filmed between September and November 1987.
