Cheaper Fuel

      Fuel prices had been decreasing lately. From P55 up per liter now it is below P55 with P49/ltr as the lowest price I've ever seen. This is good news especially to commuters like me because if this will continue, jeepney fare might decrease as well. A lot of jeepney drivers would be happy with this fuel price rollback. Cheaper fuel would mean bigger income to jeepney drivers. Hope this will continue. :)

Baseball Game

     In my jeepneyride going to down town, I always pass by in these big open field. It would always catch my attention because several people gathered here to watch different games. It may be soccer, Frisbee or baseball games. Of these games, baseball is the game where I could more relate to. I was able to join a baseball game during my high school days for extracurricular activities. Somehow I was able to experience the hardship and joy of reaching the homebase. I think it would be more fun if I was part of the live audience instead of being a player. It has been my dream to watch a live professional baseball league game. I would really jump for joy if I would have miami marlins tickets, kansas city royals tickets and los_angeles angels of anaheim tickets. It would really be a nice experience and a baseball game worth remembering.

Only Passenger

         In so many jeepney rides I had, it was my first time to be able to experience being alone in a jeepney from where I came from towards my destination. Usually if you are the only passenger, jeepney drivers would request you to transfer to another jeepney so that they could return back to their route and stay for a while in places where they could pick up more passengers. During my ride, I was already expecting that the driver would tell me to transfer to another jeepeney but he did not do so. I would really understand if he will request me to transfer because fuel now is so expensive that the driver's collected passengers fares must surpass his fuel expenses. It is only practical that in every route he does, the jeepney must be full of passengers. The experience of being a sole passenger is memorable since it doesn't happen in every ride but it is somewhat with guilt because I know that driver is not earning in that situation.
