Happy Independence Day


Written on Thursday, June 12, 2008 by Ennah, the comsci student

Today is Philippine Independence Day. And I think I should greet my fellow countrymen in our native language.

Mapagpalayang Araw ng Kalayaan, Kababayan!
( Happy Independence Day, my fellow countrymen!)

Metro Rail Transit (MRT) gave free rides today because of the special event. I was not informed about it so when I rode the MRT this morning, I was surprised that they're not selling any tickets. That's when I remember that it's Independence Day today. I don't feel that it's independence today because Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo moved the holiday last Monday.

Because the MRT ride is free, trains are jam-packed. Not only that, the aircons are not working. It was like a heating chamber inside the train. Good thing, I have a fan and a handkerchief. I'd rather buy a ticket than to have a free ride without the aircon. It was scorching hot.

Still, the good thing is I got a free ride because of the event.

    I didn't reach the peak hours :)) Though I wouldn't want to ride then because it would be too full. I rode at 3-4 pm :D

    Coolness! I forgot about those free rides on June 12. If it gets too hot you can always sing "Rexona won't let you down!"

    Happy Independence day... I agree with you... it is better to pay and get full service rather than not pay and get flawed service... anyway... do take a look at my blogs if you get time...
