  1. for the first time in a long time, i rode a jeepney the other day from Lawton to Pasay. it was one hell of a ride! LOL

    i miss my jeepney rides in the 80's with those psychedelic lights and slow rock music (Nights in White Satin, Soldier of Fortune, etc.).:p

    1. Riding jeepneys can be fun, indeed, Luna, but on early mornings when the streets are not yet saturated with diesel fumes from other jeepneys ... lol.

      Regrettably, to ease the traffic in Metro Manila, we have to replace the jeepneys with buses.

    Happy Blue Monday, Tito!

  3. It's been a long time since I rode the jeepney. It's faster and easier to ride the train. My blues are here and here.

  6. I used to ride jeepneys going to school. You are right, it was easier to ride the jeepney before but now I also find it uncomfortable. Happy RT2!

    1. I only ride them when there is no other choice, Maria. But if possible, I opt for a bus or taxi nowadays.
