Don’t believe everything you hear

These are the days I like to see happen everyday. Not much to rant about the Philippines until tomorrow or Friday when gas prices are going up again. If this country was actually working I wouldn’t have this blog at all.

Sigh. Let’s just hope this lasts for a while.

Life is too slow in Manila

leave a comment »

If you don’t work in a high energy atmosphere such as the news business, Manila is a lazy town in every sense.

  • Vehicles run on average of 50 kph
  • People walk as if they’re strolling in mall
  • Everyone is 15 minutes late
  • Malls are built faster than roads
  • It’s so hard for pedestrians to walk to the corner to wait for ride but instead make the public vehicle make stops every five minutes

Is it hard to wonder why progress is so hard to come by since most people don’t move like the rest of the industrialized world?
