I Am Back But..

This time around, please join me on blogspot.

I’ve been posting original entries there for a few months already. salmoncat2010.blogspot.com was initially a clone of salmoncat.wordpress.com. I just wanted to see what it’s like using a different blogging platform. Then I went MIA from the webeverse. Personal reasons. Curious as to what those reasons are? There are hints on my twitter account. And on my blogspot account. Maybe I’ll eventually bore you guys by posting what happened there. Maybe I won’t let you guys suffer.

Just the same, I guess I can’t abandon blogging. At least for now. So I will be posting entries on blogspot for maybe a year, maybe more, just to see how it goes. I may come back to post on wordpress, who knows.

Promise, there will be food, beauty products, paper and what-nots there.  Well, posts on food, beauty products, paper and what-nots. Be there for me. (:)) Okay fine, I know you guys will be there for the CATS. Even if my post about them are far in between.

Join us! There’s room for more!

Thank you for being with salmoncat.wordpress.com over the past years. For more craziness, please visit me on my other blog, salmoncat2010.blogspot.com. See you guys!

PS. I’m not abandoning this blog altogether as I do follow certain blogs on my reader. Also, if you have questions and reactions on my posts here on wordpress, fire away. I will get back to you as soon as I can.


Heroes and Villains

For us, the MRT/LRT is still the cheaper, faster, more secure way to commute in the metro and a lot of people think so too judging by how cramped coaches get. It’s rather amazing that here, people would  stand and offer their seats to people who need them more. Based on my experience, it is the person not impeccably dressed, students and nurses who would usually give up their seats. My parents and aunt had often been the beneficiaries of such kind acts for which we are very much thankful.

A few Saturdays ago, we found ourselves in an MRT coach for females, people with kids, senior citizen and persons with disabilities, heading northbound. That time, there was this girl who not only gave up her seat but also assisted a PWD in and off the train until some MRT personnel took over from her at the ticket gate.

And then two weeks ago, we practically sprinted for the last northbound train, again at Guadalupe. We got into a coach which was for both males and females.  This gentleman in tank top gave up his seat for my dad. His stop was Cubao Station.

Also two weeks ago, the folks and I were able to get a cab to take us to the airport during evening rush hour which issues a receipt. The driver, I think he’s in his 50s, was really friendly, adjusted the taxi’s aircon to cooler levels and would lower the volume of his taxi’s radio whenever my younger brother would get on the phone.
