How do you Outsmart the Threats of Commute in Manila?6:41 PM
Yeah, Like really? How do you Outsmart the Threats of Commute in Manila? I've been to the big city a couple of weeks ago for WordCamp and our Institute's Fieldtrip & Seminars.And I must say Manila isn't a safe place to stay.I've heard that a couple of times coming from my Mom,my Dad, my Grandma, my Aunt and even from my cat.lol.And have been hearing that even when I was already in Manila.Even when I call home, they'd always remind me of that over and over again.(Except for my cat -he can't reach the phone.Haha!)
|Be Aware - Be vigilant.If you see a suspicious looking guy, always eye on them. But sometimes|
Looks are deceiving so it is best to look the people who are close to you!
|I would assume that everybody had been a scouter from way back high school or elementary -so dapat "Laging Handa".|
|Hmm..you can do this just to let time pass by.Do this when you're bored! lol People, most of the time do this|
just inside their minds. Yes! I could read minds but if you're brave enough - do it just the way I did(see pic above).
|People will be nice at you if you look nice to them too.Even with snatchers or people-who-look-like-snatchers - be nice to them! - (Yeah, I also noticed something went wrong in the illust. but just never mind! I can't edit it anymore [here's why!])|
And I believe you need it too.Most especially if you live in Metro.The most predominant threat in commuting in Manila is that you'll have your goods snatched and have your pockets being picked.On my other LRT ride I chance upon this warning:
|I know it's blurred.But 2 things to note about this warning: First, Pickpockets are predominant and perhaps the|
number 1 threat in Metro.Second, most of pickpocket-errrs! are women. (Whatta Shame!)
So that's it! the next time you'd be riding on an LRT or a Taxi just do any of the aforementioned procedures and get the best out of your every trip - SAFETY.
P.S. Yes, Kuya Jehz's Blue Stickman did an unofficial cameo from above.lol.I included it since I coincidentally chanced upon his months old post about his wallet being stolen from the lrt(Puyat) which is by coincidence, the one I and (the blogger on the twilight pic above) ride on into.
