The Walking Day: 1 week season, 5 day episodes.

If A Picture Paints A Thousand Words, What Would This Tell You? – “trAPEC”

If there’s one word to describe the state of Metro Manila roads on Monday (November 16), it would be “trAPEC” – a combination of “traffic” and “APEC”

Road closures to have lanes dedicated for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) vehicles are in effect for the whole week. This led to an excruciatingly slow pace of traffic in areas in Metro Manila, prompting some irate commuters to vent their frustrations on social media by using  hashtags #trAPEC and #APECtado.

I myself had to experience being stuck for almost 2 hours in the traffic yesterday (November 16, 2015) on my way here to the office from weekends off. So, I decided to get off the bus and walked about few kilometers heading to Gil Puyat train station and once I got up to the station? Boom! Super crowded. It was like double of the crowd as the normal crazy day in Manila. Well, obviously, roads closure around Metro Manila led to a another disaster day or maybe days since APEC Summit is going to last for the whole week.

I mean, I completely understand the significance of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) ofcourse. Am not that too politicaly inclined person but I know it’s a multilateral international organization which seeks to foster free trade and economic prosperity among it’s member-economies in the Asia-Pacific region. I have to say am always proud Filipino whenever our country can hold such event. Hence, it’s important to prioritize the safety of each big leader of the member-economy country as a country’s security protocol. But come on! Can we not just do that protocol without jeopardizing the security and comfortability of our fellow Filipino men? After all, we are all paying taxes, aren’t we?

Oh well, I just hope we can completely eliminate the Filipino culture that visitors are more important than to our own family. Why did I say this? For an instance, A typical Filipino family would prepare thoroughly for their occasion (bday party, fiesta and etc.) such as generally clean the entire house, take out their most expensive utensils to be used only by their visitors which our parents would be so mad if we use those utensils and/or kitchen wares in our everyday living. Come on! There’s no wrong about being hospitable. It is infact, a great thing but what’s wrong is being hypocrite just to look good in the eyes of others. 

“ I just hope you all know what I mean.”

    I think we should start building subways to accommodate more people and less traffic. :)
