Jeepneys and Tricycles
You’ve probably seen those crazy guys sitting on the top load of a running jeepney somewhere in the mountainous areas here in the Philippines. Well, it’s their happiness to experience that adventure once on their lifetime. But it’s cool, isn’t it?
Jeeps or jeepneys are everywhere in the country and it is in fact the cheapest means of transport here. If you’ve been into Manila or any city in the country, there is no way you cannot see these colorful and overly-decorated vehicles. Needless to mention the features, but the face-to-face 10-12-seater benches, the eye-catchy decals and rows …

A Day in the Life of Juan dela Cruz, a Filipino Commuter

A typical working day of an ordinary Filipino usually starts at four (4) o’clock in the morning. Really? Well, that’s a rough estimate. But the reasoning behind is that if you will come from the north or south of Manila, allocating two (2) hours travel will land you safe – helps you avoid getting late for your 9:00am time-in job. But still there is no guarantee to that. Practically, a three to four hours total time allocation or allowance will enable a Filipino commuter to be at work just right on time. How true is that?

Alright, for the sake of argument, let’s dissect that lengthy hours right on this blog.


If you are a Filipino commuter, chances are, you don’t have to argue with me on this matter. But one may say, it depends on where you live and where you work. Okay, we’re talking about the average Filipino commuters here. Those who are living more than 20 kilometers outside Metro Manila, practically Filipinos who cannot afford to rent an apartment or even boarding house in this m…

Metro Manila - the City of the Filipinos that Never Sleeps

They say that, like the big New York City, “the city never sleeps”. Well, that applies to Philippine cities too. In the eyes and ears of a businessman, this looks and sounds so true. Just think of shops like 7-11, Mini Stop, and Mercury Drugs – these are some of the stores here in the Philippines that attends to the Filipino needs day and night. The lights are lit, air-conditioning units are on, and the door is open 24/7 to customers. And for workers on graveyard or night shifts, stores like these are the places to go – to grab a hot coffee or bite a piece of bread.


Metro Manila
In the Philippines, that call name or nickname of the city is very much applicable to Metro Manila. For instance, car engines are roaring, red lights are flashing, the traffic lights are blinking, and street lights are shining in this gigantic city from sunset till dawn. This is an indication that Filipinos are also ready to conquer the nights in order to survive, earn a living, and fulfill their ambitions. Bu…

My Walk to the Filipinos' Futuristic City – Bonifacio Global City of the Philippines

Filipinos are now becoming advanced in a lot of ways – transportation system, eCommerce technology, commercial devices, mobile apps, online facilities for government agencies, etc. But one of the things that caught my attention recently is the advancement in terms of city development. Guess what city in the Philippines is the talk of the town or should we say “talk of the world” today? It’s no other than the Bonifacio Global City, a.k.a. “BGC”.


BGC at a Glance
Before I further elaborate that, here are some eye-catching photos of BGC that would somehow inspire you to be here in your own country in the near future. I take a walk, look around, and captured the modern beauty of the Philippines. Have a look.







I was lucky enough to be in this futuristic city in the Philippines. This is not my first time to blog this place, the first in fact is: Where in the Philippines is Bonifacio Global City – the Gateway to the First World Country? To tell you honestly, all my visits here are just by chanc…
