MRT Blues

When I go to Makati, I use the MRT to get back to either Ortigas or Shaw. It’s the best way I could beat the northbound traffic during rush hour– Nevermind the countless of commuters with you.

Imagine my surprise, when I got there and there were separate lines for males and females entering the railway. I was going “WTF?” Apparently, they were monitoring for something, hence the new set-up. But they didn’t foresee the consequences. Long lines (longer than the usual lines during rush hour, REALLY), pissed off commuters and delayed trips. And it seems, there really ARE more females than males. The men were breezing through the inspection booth, while the females had 3 lines that bended and curved almost endlessly. O_o

*sigh* I do hope, that when I get back there, the set-up would go back to normal.

And oh, Nina! Are these the TVs at the railways you were talking about before? (Blue poles) Ahhh~ They’re new (I haven’t ridden the MRT for a few months already). And they’re showing music videos. When I was there, they were showing Martin Nievera vids. This was in Makati. I also saw the same thing at Shaw station, on the way to the Shangri-la Exit.
