Filipino Discipline at Its Finest (Part 3)

Whenever I go out I always have my camera with me and act as paparazzi ready to take pictures of anything that I find interesting. Good thing that I have it that day and was able to catch these undisciplinary acts. On the signage is “Bawal magbaba at magsakay dito” (loading and unloading here is prohibited/no loading and unloading here).

But the jeep where I and my daughter are riding pulled over right in front of the signage then the barker (the one waving his hand) called for the passengers. Another Filipino discipline at it’s finest that was caught in the act.

I just want to clarify that not all Filipinos are like them. It’s sad though that there are few who until now do not know how to follow instructions and rules. When are they going to learn?

By the way, did you notice the man in red? Oh yes, he’s going to pee at the light post, there in public, in broad daylight. Tsk tsk tsk!

Hope For The Filipinos

I was hoping for the Philippines 2010 election to be automated to make voting faster and less corrupt. But last night it was on the news that this might not be possible because of the irreconcilable differences between the Smartmatic and the Total Management Information. The local company which is the Total Management Information withdrew from the $150 million contract it had won with a foreign partner which is the Smartmatic. Both companies passed through the needle hole just to win the bid and suddenly the contract was called off. Some said that this was manipulated by influential politicians and their motives are so obvious. 

The system to computerize the voting was designed to minimize cheating and fraud, including vote-buying and selling and to speed up voting up to 2 days instead of several weeks under the current manual system. If this issue won’t be settled, we have no choice but to go back to manual voting which will lead of course to cheating and fraud, vote-buying and selling, and worst….violence. The credibility of the 2010 national election is an absolute necessity needed to attain the political stability in our country. I love this country but I hate these politicians who only think of themselves. Despite of this, I am still one of the proud Filipinos who believe that there is still hope for this country to move forward beyond the 2010 election.
