3 Inventions I Wish The Metro Manila Roads Would Have

My mom said I should not be driving. Because when I’m on the road, if not asleep, I’m usually angry. I can’t help it! In the gritty roads of Metro Manila filled with feeling-rakstar motorcycle drivers, bus drivers with IQ and EQ levels that won’t reach the price of gas and injustice, who wouldn’t be angry? So what you are about to read is a recollection of my regular road rants as a passenger and the solutions I wish existed.

Spent the whole day with my friend Wincy walking along the streets of Manila, just admiring the architecture. It’s quite fun to identify which design movement and which decade all the buildings belonged.

First stop was the McArthur Bridge, we both thought it looked like a scene in Wong Kar Wai’s Days of Being Wild. Next was a short walk in Intramuros, then we headed to Binondo. I found the 1920’s style buildings really interesting. And of course, we wouldn’t miss the Binondo church - I wasn’t so sure which movement its design belonged to, but judging from the domes, it reminded me of the Romanesque Bernini churches.

It suddenly drizzled so we rushed back to the car and drove to Roxas Boulevard. We were supposed to check out Manila Ocean Park, but man, the parking was full! So my friend and I just went to Museo Pambata. Childhood memories! It’s still as interesting but they renovated some areas and integrated new significant information like renewable energy, carbon footprint and many more.

I got hungry from all the walking, craved for some dimsum and noodles - so David’s Tea House it is! We also checked out how Harrison Plaza is nowadays. Its now filled with tiangges and pirated DVD’s. 

As the dawn set in, we headed back to a more familiar place - Katipunan. :)

Today is indeed very memorable to me. Hours before I get to explore Barcelona (my dream travel destination) and immerse myself in Gaudi’s architecture, Miro, Dali and Picasso’s art and many more — It is charming to find myself awestruck in the streets of my very own Manila. :)

I find this amusing in so many ways. We have the same thing here in Manila and we call it pacencia - probably cause of our Spanish influences. Look, the photo is from France! :) Another thing, patience is one of my favorite words.

Well it’s finally live. :) The new PLUS63 is out.
The intention remains the same. We just made it more flexible and dynamic for people. Images are sourced from flickr, with a special search string to make it scour Philippines-only images. Even before, I really wanted to extend the reach of Plus63. I had ideas of creating a traveling concert with different independent bands playing all over the Philippines. Time will tell if we can pull this off. But for now, Im just glad we finished the site.
Plus63 runs on the tornado webserver, using jplayer ( a jquery player ) for the audio and masonry js for the flexi divs. Enjoy and share. Cheers!
At the end of the month, we will compile the songs into mixtaple playlists. :) For this month we have 2 Filipino indie bands on the playlist: Rescue a Hero from Cebu and Electric Fun from Manila.

I remember talking to Dan Matutina about music and he shared me this site. It was just under construction then. I asked a musician (I personally knew) before if he wanted to contribute (but it was for free) - too bad he declined. Look here, it’s promising and about to be big. Kudos Sir Dan!
