Schools should help city address traffic woes


(Enlightenment—Passage of the Day)

WHEN praying, we don’t need to overdo it— like others who are more out there to impress outwardly, rather, inwardly. This is what Jesus Christ teaches us how to pray: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18: 20);

“When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for yourFather knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.(Matthew 6: 7-8). Email:




MY mother, ÑORA Tang or Titang, celebrated her 96th birthday, last Feb. 9—instead, feeling even getting younger and younger.

HER secrets? Well, she just asks us,

“Please, my children, just let me feel free.Let me go to Mass and to the Fort Pilar, every Sunday,” she said.

And one more, she added, “No, kta cumigo el majong.”

Ese pa!

TO our mom, belated happy birthday! From me, Becky and kids( Mario III, Mark Anthony and Michael Angelo).

TAKE care, Mang. Of-course, not to forget— to our youngest sibling (the only girl in our family), Marivic— for sacrificing a lot in being our matriarch’s lifetime caregiver. Good job, Neng!



THEY say our various institutions of learning here, that means our schools in the city, should have their own parking spaces to help our city decongest its heavy traffic woes.

BUT, look, there are many of these schools of learning, right now, are having their vehicles virtually parked even on both sides of our city’s street lanes.

THOSE religious schools—like the one on RT Lim Blvd. and another on La Purisima, just, to cite a few? They seem naïve about the realities happening around us.  Why can’t they improve and make more accessible their own large school campuses  to accommodate inside all the vehicles of their school kids’ parents fetching them everyday during school days? That way, we can say, schools are helping address our city’s perennial traffic jams, everyday.


AND, this is worse. See thoseexcavations rudely going on stretching from San Jose Gusu down towards the busiest thoroughfares along Climaco Ave.?

THESE are all messing up our city’s too narrow roads. We see and hear nothing but all these eardrum- splitting sounds coming from all their nonstop too bothersome diggings—donealmost likehere, there and everywhere(Beatles’ song).


THEN, there goes those too filthy moving garbage trucks— shopping all around the city proper with impunity,just to pick up garbage (even during peak hours) that are seen nearly in its every nook and corner. My goodness! Dol nuay man gubierno mas? Can’t we do something about this? Just,to alleviate even a bit the plight of our already too much burdened tax-paying public? Dol hinde’ yaman ste amo? Dol grande castigo ya man ste canaton? What’s happening to our city? Oh, shit!  (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
