haha. everyone cheats

Buwisit itong pauso ng MMDA na single driver ban sa EDSA. At 6am, I'm usually on EDSA for 30 minutes only (QC to Makati). With this scheme, I'll be (and thousands of other cars) on the road (side streets & c5) for an hour or more clogging up these already congested roads. Is it time to get manyak tints?

Ok sana yung contactless apprehension. Pero paano in my case, my kid is still young, he's not allowed to sit in front during long drives. And when he sits in the back, he wants someone sitting next to him. The HD CCTVs only captures the front seats, not those seated at the back.

Dashcam with inward facing secondary? Match timestamps and location with your no contact summons to contest.

then every time you cross edsa, you'll get a contactless ticket, and everytime you'll contest it? such a waste of time...

for those living outside of metro manila, those tickets will get to you upto 8months after -- this is by experience, I have a uv-express plying the metro, but the car registration address is here in cavite, the last ticket I received is last June, and apprehension is dated October2017, we just send it back together with the driver's license of the the driver during the time of the ticket, still, the postal system here sucks, 8months to get a mail is a normal thing. -- If ever something like this gets implemented and you have a passenger at the back which is not seen thru the MMDAs camera, then you'll get a ton of those tickets

Well the alternative is to not take EDSA at all if the kid doesn't want to sit alone. That, or NOT contest the tickets and pay the fine everytime.

dinidistract lang tayo hehe. kasi hanggang ngayon wala pa din ang plaka ko. yung bagong trains sa MRT nawala na. yung sabi nila na MRT 18-20 trains by july-august wala din.

matutupad lang yan HOV lane kapag pinagbawal na ang dark tints. kaso meron pa din non-appearance sa LTO eh.

New Levorg with a WRX engine

https://www.autoindustriya.com/auto-industry-news/ph-spec-subaru-levorg-2-0-priced-at-php-1-998m.html
i hope the drive is better! i was able to test drive the older variant (the 1.6L). actually that already drives pretty ok.

having tested a levorg and a forester, my main complaint with subarus is their infotainment and steering wheel buttons layout is infuriating. among the best drives, though.

That's why I invested in a CTEK MXS5.0 and leave it connected whenever I'm at home. My battery's more than 3 years old now and is still as strong as new.

I've seen places where the highest octane gasoline goes up to 61.80 something :)

marami na din affected ng fuel prices. Dati kasi 6AM maluwag pa trinoma parking para mag MRT. Ngayon puno na kahit before 6AM. 

Ang problema hindi na nababawasan ang sasakyan sa kalsada after rush hour dahil sa Grab/TNVS (legal or not) saka mga delivery vans. Ang hilig pa nila magdagdag ng bus sa edsa eh barado na nga.

we really need MRT3 to be at 20+ trains and 4 coaches per train.  That will also help reduce vehicle volume in c5.  for the Rizal folks, DPWH needs to finish c6 and improve traffic flow at the floodway side (barkadahan bridge). para di na makigulo sa c5 ang mga taga Rizal.  Grabe talaga dito sa Pinas.
