Looking for Spa in Tagaytay

Xander works as an entertainer. His friends stays at Taal Vista Hotel.

He joins them there to relax.

He looks for a spa in the area. 

Asmara Spa offers 24 hour massage. It is located at Kilometer 60, Aguinaldo Highway
4120 Tagaytay City, Philippines

He thinks twice, the price was expensive.

He called to inquire but later on sleeps out of tiredness.

Should PNoy Run Again?

According to Article VII, Section 1, of the 1987 Constitution vests executive power to the President of the Philippines, who functions as the head of state, head of government, and commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

The President of the Philippines (chief executive) exercises control over all the executive departments, bureaus, and offices.

The President is elected by direct vote by the people for a term of six years.

And he may only serve for one term, and is ineligible for re-election. The term of the President of the Philippines starts at noon of the 30th day of June after an election is held.

But President Benigno Aquino said lately that he is now open to the idea of a possible term extension.

In an interview broadcast on TV5 on Wednesday, the President admitted thinking about amending the Constitution.

He will be a President again. But why?

Some reasons why it is questionable.

1. He can't resolve the problem of corruption. The rich becomes rich but the poor people remains suffering. During his term, corruption increases and the prices of oil, mga bilihin(comsumer goods) also increases.

2.  Lack of Employment. To finish school, to find someone to love, to start a family, to set up and grow a business or advance in their careers, and to live peaceful lives is everybody's dream. Hardworkers are not well compensated. Wage earners are exploited. Unemployment rate increase. 

3. Poverty rate is high. Plus the crime rate is high. Slow judiciary system.

On May 9, 2013, a shooting incident took place involving patrolling personnel of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) on board BFAR MCS-3001 and a Taiwanese fishing vessel at Balintang Channel near the Batanes group of islands. The incident resulted in the death of a Taiwanese fisherman.

4. Traffic is forever. Specially during Mondays and rush hours. Maybe President Aquino failed to appoint personnels in-charge for transportation problems. Adding to that is the poor management of MRT3.

5. It was the year of Pork Barrel Scam. Politicians became more wealthy, Corruption in the government were hidden. He was also involved in DAP issue. They use National Treasury as their personal investment. So why not just after his term, he gives chance to others who are more deserving to lead the Philippines.

On a note, the idea of a term extension for the President was first proposed by some administration supporters in social networking sites, few days after his State of the Nation Address on July. In fact there is a facebook page dedicated to gain followers on that campaign/

Maybe it's time to give chance to others who are more deserving to lead the Philippines.

The oil price spiked during his term. 

On a note, the SWS noted the Aquino administration scored a "very bad" -51 rating for "resolving the Maguindanao massacre case with justice," below the "poor" -26 in March 2013.

We can ask ourselves, why PNoy's intention of extending him term for another six years should not push?

Spa near MRT

I would like to recommend a spa near an MRT station, non other than the Pahulay Spa in MRT Ayala.

I've been here many times getting random therapists, but they never fail to give great satisfaction.

I tried 4-5 different female therapists at Pahulay, she never fails to give a good relaxing 30 minute massage.
I strongly recommend Pahulay to those in a hurry but needs to get a relaxing massage.

It is also good for those who can only afford a 300 worth of body massage.

Every person who passes by MRT Ayala will surely see Pahulay Spa.

If problems occur, try out a spa!

Problems about MRT  
Long lines during morning and evening

Just a few months ago, many were complaining about the long lines and many hours of waiting. It’s the same scenario after working hours.

Being inside the MRT is a suffering condition. It’s like youre inside a sardines can as many people say. But you have no choice but to ride because you are already late to work.

MRT-3’s original capacity is 350,000 passengers per day, but more than 500,000 people ride every day.

Problems with operating system

In news published in ABS CBN, a railway expert said their facilities are poorly maintained and the software technologies used to operate the trains by remote control are already obsolete.

Rene Santiago, a civil engineer, says the MRT is apparently still using the same operating system since it started in 2003. Taken from:

Despite the warning of the authorities, there still reports that many MRT passengers has been victimized by pickpockets.

One of their modus operandi is stealing someones cellphone while the owner is listening to a music via  earphones. When the owner notices his phone is gone, pickpockets will tell that the thief went out already.

The tendency of the owner is to go out and check as well. Until he realizes that the voice who told him to go out was the real thief.

There are many problems to encounter in riding the MRT, now that government is buying the train company.

The Government could have avoided all the current and potential legal hassles in this MRT3 capacity expansion project had DOTC only abided by the 1999 BLT agreement and allowed MRTC to do its job of choosing the M&O contractor for this EDSA rail line.

What do you think will happen now that government wants to take over MRT 3 within 3rd quarter of 2014? 

Has it worsened for MRT-3 commuters?
