Join Resorts World Manila’s Pinoy Ultimate Jeepney 2015!

I remember those days when the jeepneys, called Saraos, were all shiny, colorful, well-decorated, and fly (not ply) the streets of Manila. I wonder how and why the jeepneys we have today have gone old and decrepit.

But Resorts World Manila is trying to bring back the glory of Philippine a jeepneys by the Pinoy Ultimate Jeepney 2015 Design Contest. Now on its 4th year, RW is inviting amateur artists from colleges and universities all over the country to participate and represent their respective schools in this innovative competition.

This year’s theme is ‘What Makes Pinoys Smile,’ this Pinoy Ultimate Jeepney (PUJ) Design Challenge pays homage to Bacolod’s MassKara Festival by translating the fête’s vibrant colors and merry imagery into rolling works of art that portray Filipino resilience.

The top 10 designs will be chosen and made into fully-functional jeepneys to be displayed at Resorts World Manila for judging. This year’s grand winner will receive Php300,000 and the runner-up will receive Php200,000. The public can also vote via online and via SMS for the 2015 PUJ People’s Choice Award, which will win for the winning entry Php100,000 in cash.

The contest is now open for submission of entries. Deadline is extended until November 7, 2015.

Motorists, Be Careful on the Road

The husband and I were peacefully cruising along from West Service, northbound then turned left to Newport City. We were going to take the Skyway to Makati. We made a turn at the U-turn slot on Newport Blvd (I think!) from Resort Drive. Then it happened. A Pasay Traffic enforcer flagged us down.

Violation: We were in the inner lane which should turn to Newport Blvd to Resorts World. But we didn’t see any sign, and we didn’t know.

The Rule: What we should have done, the officer said, was to make a U-turn then go out into the outer lanes then head straight to the entrance of the Skyway.

Well, ignorance of the law excuses no one. But if it were an honest mistake, can’t they let it pass?

Besides, I think that regulation is not necessary, as it will not obstruct the flow of the motorists who are going in the same direction anyway.

That said, we are P2,000.00 poorer for that violation.

Careful, careful on the road everyone!
