Summer Ends

It has been almost a week or two that we have been experiencing scattered rain showers. I wonder if the PAGASA or Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration are still not confirming the end of summer season. It’s been to really hot for more than a month. The grass don’t need push mowers anymore since it almost dried up because of too much heat. I hope the government already prepared contingency measures by now for the coming rainy season to avoid flash flooding in some parts of the Metro.

Gas Rollback

I hope that the successive gas price rollbacks and a news about the upcoming big time roll back among major gasoline will also translate to lowered product prices. Aside from a positive impact on prices of basic commodities, I also expect a lowered minimum fare in public transports. I believe these are clear manifestations that price rollbacks are being felt. All of us must be vigilant in monitoring not only prices of gasoline but also the prices of commodities that are affected these. One way or another, we should feel its impact even if we don’t load up on gas. 

 I hope that vendors in the market would avoid tampering the weighing scale just to gain a few centavos. We know that it is not mettler balance that we are using to really have the exact weights. As we notice, more and more consumers prefer supermarkets because of some bad publicity in the public market such as dishonest weighing scale, double dead meat being sold, among others. Hopefully we could bring back the “suki” system build around trust in each other.

Motorcycle Lane

I notice that the MMDA (Metro Manila Development Authority) implemented motorcycle lane in some major road in Metro Manila. It was so gratifying at first because motorcycle accidents are minimized but I noticed lately that it was not followed anymore. Especially the motorcycle lane in EDSA motorist just followed the lane if there’s an enforcer watching. Hopefully it will get implemented well to avoid more accidents lucky if you will only use ossur knee braces.
