back to school

After two months of summer vacation, I had already forgotten something very important that is related to school days: traffic!! The past two days have been a quite a reminder. Most especially today when the the rest of the elementary schools in the city have opened. The roads were jampacked with mothers, fathers, grandparents, surrogates and yayas who all wanted to see off their kids on their memorable first day of school.

Years ago it was unthinkable for sleepy Dumaguete to have "traffic" as it is known in metropolitan cities. Well, the fact is, Dumaguete is after all dubbed as a "university town" so it is only natural that there are so many schools and students in this city. I saw a lot vehicles though that had only one or two passengers. Such a waste of fuel, I think. We should all carpool, right?

Yes, Vicki,

Having yayas is one of the nice things about living in the Philippines. Barato ang labor, dili "Mahal Kaayo" hehehe.

In western countries you don't have yayas but you have very efficient electronic gadgets that make work easier. Naa bay abog (dust) diha sa Germany? Once a week vaccuum, ok na or do you have to do it daily? Diri intawon kinahanglan everyday mag trapo kay abog man kaayo ang atong nasod.
