Q:Dubai has "universal card" for riding trains and buses. And they come in prepaid. I hope they can implement that kind of system in our country.
Actually many cities with Metro Trains have this kind of card (that is I think compatible with the expressways and buses), I hope they can look into it too.
For a throwback, has anyone of you experienced entering LRT1 via tokens?
LRT 1 first used tokens such as the one in the figure. When MRT was finished on 1999, the current magnetic cards was introduced and the LRT 1 tokens were rendered obsolete.
Hopefully by next year, a somehow more unified smart card like Hong Kong MTR’s Octopus card will be in place for easier train service: You don’t need 2 different SV cards when riding the MRT/LRT. But we’re way too late for this, the Octopus Card is already 20 years in Hong Kong.
San Agustin Church, Manila
The structure was first built during the 17th century and survived the 1945 liberation of Manila, it is one of the oldest structures in the country. The interiors, though it looks like carved stone ceiling, is actually a painting technique called trompe l’oeil, a technique that creates on illusion of 3D objects on a flat surface.
San Agustin is one of the 4 Baroque Churches of the Philippines that is in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Cinemalaya Weekend 2! So I missed out on Sundalong Kanin, Kasal and Shorts A this year. I’ll try to complete everything next year.
The first weekend of Cinemalaya resulted in me watching 9 Films. The Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival still runs until August 10, so watch the films if you have time. I’m going to the next weekend as well.
Films in this photoset ranked by how much I liked it.
Good to know for planning reasons, continued and updated.
Neilsen has handily revamped their lists.
Sherlock: how does it feel to have three seasons of 90-minute episodes with long-ass production time and still take less time to watch than a show that was canceled in its first season?

The Department of Tourism building (also once the Agriculture Building) was already vacated to become the National Museum of Natural History. Once completed, the museum will complete the proposed National Museum Complex (as mandated by the National Museum Law) with the old Senate Building as the National Art Gallery and the old Finance Building as the Museum of the Filipino People.
And now, the Department of Tourism is now holding office at Buendia, Makati.
PS: Can we have the Post Office, Metropolitan Theater and the Manila City Hall as Museums already?
