    @Del Rey, Natural na yan sa Bacoor. Wala pa nga yan sa kalingkingan ng pinaggagagawa ng mga BTMO monkeys sa Aguinaldo Highway, lalo na kapag Setyembre. Dahil during Bacood Trapik Festival, sarado as in ‘SARADO’ ang Aguinaldo Highway, courtesy of your horrorable Mayor Stike Revilla, kaya sa susunod na eleksyon, mag-isip-isip na kayo riyan sa Bacoor.

    itong SM na ito ang tunay na dahilan ng trapik sa metro manila halos idikit na ang mga mall nila sa daanan o national road

      di baleng magkatrapik trapik sa pilipinas at magsayang ng milyon milyon piso sa krudo at mapgpalala ng climate change basta kumita ang mga oligarch na mga intsik na mga ito

      sila din ang nagpalala ng pagbaha sa metron manila dahilan sa pagclaim at pagtayo ng moa
    sa manila bay hinarangan nila ang malayang pagdaloy ng tuig papuntang dagat  at higit sa lahat ang mga plastik bag ng sm sa mga ilog na natambak sa mahabang panahon puro plastik ng sam ang nasa pasig river

    tapos ang tinituro nilang lagi  ay mga skwater  ang dahilang ng pagbaha

    actually meron mga building restriction yan at pag Mall ang itinatayo mas malayo sila sa main road,dito sa US napakahigpit nila sa pagsunod ng bldg. restriction line at dapat di lalabag..kasi once na lumampas ka sa line at kahit nakapag-concreto na…you need to take it out…gigibain ng contractor otherwise ititigil ang paggawa…nagtrabaho ako sa pinas sa consulting off. i am a archt…but i work to a chinese archt…kahit hindi dapat gawin..naaapproban sa city hall for permit…kasi maraming under the table…unlike here….walang red tape..we have a subd. proj. around 1000 houses…ang system dito..they clear the whole place..kung 20 hectares ..aayusin ang buong area..at susundin yun site dev. plan…lahat ilalagay..at kung bumili ka ng hse. and lot..ang buong lote mo aayusin..napakaayos ang trabaho dito…

    It seems nothing has changed as far as corruption is concerned. It is getting worse, when law enforcers are involved
