I woke up this morning with full hope. My morning started so beautifully. The sunlight strike into my skin. The lively day into my soul.
I am headed to the shop and took Bugo liner, as I sit, I noticed that there is two jeepney conductor, but I just didn’t mind it. Along the road when a man paying his fare, there was a little argument between that man and the jeepney conductor 1. Then I started to observe and I found out that jeepney conductor 1 is there to teach the jeepney conductor 2 about the price fare and to mentor how to do his job.
Deep down in my heart, I felt happiness, thinking that jeepney conductor 2 is trying to have income decently. I’m not judging or what here but, as far as I know, what reality is, one of the factors why crime increases because of the high unemployment rate. It’s just so good to know that people still have hope to live their life even in the least income job but in the most decent way.
The next scenario I saw while still on the jeepney was, along Capistrano Street here in Cagayan de Oro, a half paralyze man is taking his morning walk. The determination that he has is so uplifting.
The third scenario I wanted to share in this post is that I saw a Plymouth Car of 1940, so vintage. I salute the owner of that car.

This was taken last July 15, Sunday. Our friend invited us to their Bible Club Launching. As we were waiting for a jeepney, I saw this another wonderful sunset and took a picture of it.
God is so good to let me witness another thing He created for us to cherish! Life!
Yesterday was very a long long day.
Two of my friends were affected by that tropical storm Sendong, so we the budidies decided to help even in our own lil way. So after work I was with my friends buying goods for them. As we headed to our first destination, we can all see the tragic view that TSS brought to Cagayan de Oro. We saw houses that was really, ugh, that you can’t really picture out anymore. I can see survivors trying to strive and save their things and houses, t’was very heart breaking scenario because I can say deep down to my self that I can’t do anything to help them out. 😦 So devastating. Annndd.. for almost an hour of travel, finally we reached at Peri’s house. Hearing her story, what did they experience doubles the pain that i felt 😦 . What good to know is she and her family were okay now. Second destination was at meriam’s place. We reached there when the sun is about to set, so yeah the weather going better now, i guess. Still, since the day it was happened no electricity and no water in the area where it were most affected by the TSS. 😦 We didn’t stay so long there because t’was already 6pm and its so hard to commute.
All day was going so well. I mean, I have a good time at work till when I’m with my peers. What makes me decide to write this post is that, aside from I am so devastated from the tragic we experienced here, I was SO disappointed with the collector of fares in a public conveyance which is we refer as ‘conductor’. As I went home, alright I always commute and Jeepney is all I can got. I’m so tired leaning my head and trying to get some rest. There were two passenger who stop at public market which practically means that there are two vacant seat, right? The conductor looking for two passenger too and it happened that there two ladies who waited for Jeepney. The first one who got in was just bringing her bag, no baggage’s , no hassle. And here’s the point that my tempered reaches its peak, the second one WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO STEP-IN in the Jeepney was blocked by the conductor and says, ‘NO MORE VACANT, SORRY!’ where in fact there was really another vacant for her. That woman he blocked was bringing two heavy baggage’s, the heavier one was in her head and she’s just holding the other one. (Can you see the picture that I’m trying to share to you?) As in, my eyes were opened wide as in shocked in a way that, Oh my God how dare he is, he didn’t even show mercy on her. I mean, how could he do that with the woman who totally obvious that really tired in bringing those heavy baggage’s???? WHY?? If I didn’t control myself, my temper I might even punch his face. 😦 I just can’t understand why people tend to be like that? He could help her right? SO stupid guy. Despite of the tragedy happened to our city he could care much right? I mean, he’s Kagay-anon too he should care and help people in every simple way just like letting that woman in the jeepney 😦
Before I start my nonsense story 😛 , let me introduce to you the Jeepney. We use Jeepney as one of our public transportation in the Philippines 🙂 We commute there and here, we go to one other places using Jeepneys. So, here’s the story goes:
Yesterday I went to the city, I commute of course cos I don’t have a private plane .. 😛 , where I’m aware that traffic is really there. Though, there’s a newly open flyover, DANG, traffic is more heavier than I thought. I’m thinking that flyover could minimize or lessen the hassle but no it isn’t 😦 . And the moment when I’m done in my transaction within the city, I quickly commute again and headed to school and here’s where I got irritated. Jeepneys route will always pass through our public market and heck dude, it moves 1min BUT it stops 5minutes. Are u kidding me? As in …………………………… HEAVY TRAFFIC was my worst enemy yesterday 😐 .. not because I’m in hurry though its just that what keep it so long to be in School?!. Can you figure out what’s that feeling? hmmmmppp 😐
Who’s to blame? Engineers? Undisciplined drivers? Lazy traffic enforcer? street vendors? Well, blame us all!!! 😐
