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…

Logitech UE 600vi Review

Update: Sept 11, 2015 - My Ultimate Ears 600vi finally died to me. Actually, only one ear sort of died. I think the wire inside got cut so I can't hear music on the right side of the earphone unless I hold it a certain way. It's too bad. It's probably the earphone that lasted the longest for me. I had it for almost 2 years and used it daily. For CAD$79.99, it's not bad.

I tried to look for a replacement, but I think Ultimate Ears has discontinued selling low end earphones and only see speakers and high end earphones on their website. Oh well, try to see what else is out there. I'm considering some other brands and see if I can find something as good as the UE 600vi.

I just got myself the Logitech UE 600vi noise-isolating earphones yesterday. If you read by previous review on the Logitech UE 350vi, I mentioned that those earphones died on me when one ear lost all sound and I was looking for a replacement.

After doing my research, I almost bought the Klipsch S4i unti…

Makati Police Explains The Dasmarinas Incident and Arrest of 3 Guards

This is the kind of politicians that the Filipino people votes for. I don't know why when their own arrogance is called out, it is automatically labelled politically motivated. What is the political agenda of 3 lowly guards who are just doing their job?

The video starts at 10:25.

3 Dasma Guards Who Stopped Binay Convoy Held and Then Freed

From the Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—Makati Mayor Junjun Binay ordered the arrest of three security guards of a posh subdivision in the city when the guards refused to allow his four-car convoy to pass through a restricted gate close to midnight on Nov. 30, according to a source privy to the incident.

The entire incident at the gate of Banyan and McKinley Roads was recorded by the closed-circuit television cameras of North Forbes Park and Dasmariñas Village, the source, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisal from City Hall, told the Inquirer.

Based on a 24-minute video, a copy of which was obtained by the Inquirer, the standoff was witnessed by the mayor’s sister, Sen. Nancy Binay, a passenger of one of the vehicles.

The siblings are the children of Vice President Jejomar Binay, a former mayor of Makati who has declared he will run for president in 2016.

The mayor came from his sister’s house in Dasmariñas Village when their convoy was not allowed to get past the Banyan…

Tacloban's REO Brothers at the ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2013

The REO Brothers from Tacloban sings a medley of Beatles greatest hits at the ABS-CBN Christmas Special. They sound almost like The Beatles!

The REO brothers are survivors of Typhoon Yolanda, they relocated to Metro Manila after the typhoon. They traveled to Manila in a Philtranco bus for two days surviving on candies and biscuits. They left Tacloban penniless and only the clothes they have were the ones they were wearing. The only thing they were able to save during the storm was their all important guitars!

Here's the full background story about the REO Brothers.

Psychologist defends 'affluenza' decision

I don't know if you've heard of this incident recently. But 16-year-old Ethan Couch killed 4 people and injured 9 including one that will be paralyzed for life when he got into an accident while driving drunk. The sentence he got? 10 years probation. Why so light a sentence? Apparently, according to a psychologist, he's suffering from Affluenza, it's because his family is so rich, he has no concept of consequences in life and not realizing the severity of his actions.

Here's a video of his interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN.

Even though the kid got off, the Affluenza family is now being sued by the victims for at least $20 million.

Filipino Values Through TV Commercials

In 1986, the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) ran a series of ads about values. I remember them strongly as it shaped how I viewed Filipino values. Unfortunately, nobody seems to be following these values today especially in our crop of politicians.

I recently got into a conversation with some friends on how our society no longer have these values but have moved to a mendicant and entitled society especially among the poor. It's sad to see the deterioration of the strong Filipino values I used to see when I was younger and I do not know if they teach these values to our kids now.

If we are to change our future, it has to start with us and we should pass it on to our children.

Father still looking for Hyundai Santa Fe driver who shot his daughter after road altercation


The father of a child who was allegedly shot during a road altercation is still looking for the unidentified motorist whom he claimed seriously wounded his daughter.

In a phone interview with, the father, who refused to be identified, said he was driving his two daughters to school, with his wife when a Hyundai Santa Fe approached, its headlights blindingly bright.

On the early morning of Friday last week, the father's vehicle and the Hyundai came close to one another along M.H. del Pilar St., Barangay Bungad in Quezon City.

The father lowered his window to speak with the other driver in "a nice way," he toldÂ

He said he could not remember what the motorist looked like, even though the latter rolled down his heavily tinted window slightly during the altercation.

“Brod, pwede mo bang ibaba ‘yung ilaw (Friend, can you lower your light)?” he had said. The driver’s reply, said the father, was, “Eh, ano ngayon…

Tacloban Mayor Alfredo Romualdez Blast Mar Roxas and President Aquino

MANILA -Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez on Monday criticized President Aquino and Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas for engaging in partisan politics immediately after super typhoon Yolanda ravaged his city.

Romualdez said the national government ignored his request to augment the police force. He, however, confirmed that the Philippine National Police sent Special Action Forces elements to the city.

He also said he had “difficulty communicating” with the national government officials because “there were things asked of us.”

“They wanted an ordinance immediately for a curfew. And I said: it is difficult to have an ordinance for a curfew because we have no fiscal’s office, no court. If these people violate the curfew and be arrested, how can they post bail? Why don’t we just have checkpoints? And this went on and on, and yet every day. We were meeting every day, every morning. I could not understand why we could not get that support,” he said.

He said that in one meeti…

La Salle Graduate Will Be First Filipino To Fly Into Space


MANILA, Philippines – From more than 28,000 aspiring astronauts in the Philippines, down to 400, then 50, and finally down to the top 3, one man has emerged victorious: 22-year-old Chino Roque, the first Filipino to go to space.

“Right now I’m very happy that a lot of people have been showing me their love and support. I feel so blessed and grateful to all of them,” says Chino, who spoke to Rappler through Skype just a few hours after his announcement as winner.

The 22-year-old psychology graduate from De La Salle Manila will be one of 22 individuals who'll travel to space in 2014. But his journey wasn't exactly smooth sailing.

Twist of fate

In the beginning, the fitness coach and psychology graduate wasn’t even supposed to go to space camp. On the final day of challenges in August, two men were left standing: Evan Rey Datuin from Dasmariñas, Cavite and Mario Mendoza Jr. from Taytay, Rizal. Chino placed fifth. A third winner, Ramil Santos, would later join the …
