The Wang-Wang Syndrome

Pic is from HERE. Thanks!


I was on my way to work on this rainy rainy Thursday and was anticipating the heavy traffic along EDSA already. So I went inside the car prepared... I have my fully charged cellphone on full blast playing songs from the phone's radio (Troopie's radio is busted). I was trying real hard not to be affected by the traffic+rain combo and just be cool and calm about it then....

"WANG... WANG... WAAAAAANG".

Three cars with red plate numbers are trying to get ahead of everybody. My initial thought was "Where the hell do you think you're going? Everyone's stucked... Might as well just 'go with the flow'". But noOoOooOo.. seems like they were really on a hurry. When 1 of the cars passed by, I tried to look at who's in it. Tadaaaaa.. just the driver. Then the 2nd car passed.... Tadaaaaaa.. just a driver and a bodyguard maybe. Then the 3rd car passed... it was darkly tinted so I wasn't able to look at the passenger. So I'm guessing, that's THE government official's car.

Got me thinking... maybe that's why our traffic problems never seem to be resolved. THEY don't experience traffic at all with all their Wang-Wang-ed cars. Aren't they public officials, ergo they're supposed to be one with the public. We (the public) experience traffic, I really think they should too. Maybe that way they'll focus more on clearing it up and fixing up roads. Agree?


*Biiiiiig Sigh*... Just my two cents for the day.


CARPE DIEM!

kaya wala silang alam kasi they're living the good life with all the benefits...

one thing: yun lang airport natin, sa dami ng visits nila abroad, dpa ba sila nahihiya sa itsura ng airport natin compared to others?!?

Pag may nagwang-wang dito, talagang may emergency. Mahirap baguhin ang "naging tradisyon" na.

hehehe! ganun talaga... kahit sa ibang bansa, that's how they do things for government officials.

diba ambulance lang ang may karapatan mag wang-wang?

these government officials should "ECPERIENCE" what we're experiencing so that they would take action. hmp!

Here's a thought: Aren't they supposed to serve the public? So hindi ba dapat lang na tayo ang gumagamit ng Wang Wang nila?

In situations like that, follow suit and turn on your car's hazard, hehe :)

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.


Sisig …
