I rode the MRT today and found out about the new “segregation” law where women, children and senior citizens are separated from men. It was comfortable in the first car (where the former group is placed) but when I stepped out of Ortigas station, I saw how horribly full the rest of the cars were. LOL. I wonder how long this rule will remain in action.

Speaking of railway transit laws, I posted an LJ entry with a mirror project photo taken at the Cubao station the other day and I got a number of responses regarding how that was illegal! LOL. I’ve been taking several shots inside and outside MRT/LRT stations but the guards have never stopped me from doing so. Hmmmmm…maybe because I look a little too harmless? Geez.

    btw, the segregation has been effect in the old LRT line for years and the first car gets quite full too

    Nina: Yup. I know :) And I am glad they did that in the LRT. It was tough before the segregation. I had friends who were sexually harassed before the segregation scheme.

    Drakulita: Even in MRT blue line. Nice, isn’t it? :)
