    Well, at least niky put some sense into people. I wouldn't criticize that you're raising possible traffic alleviating measures - because an effort is better than none.

    The Philippines is highly consumption-driven. Our economy revolves around the purchase of goods to sustain our economy.

    In a nutshell, the process is like this:
    1. OFWs send money to the Philippines
    2. Filipinos spend the money to purchase goods
    3. Businesses hire people to keep up with demand
    4. A good economy encourages more investors into the Philippines

    That's it in a nutshell. This is the reason why Henry Sy is the Philippines' richest man as reported by Forbes - he effectively controls the retail sector of the country. If SM Prime coughs, the entire Philippine retail industry sneezes.

    Yun problema is the lack of willpower in implementing infrastructure projects. Kita mo naman gaano kabagal sila gumawa diba? And even after project construction, nagkakaproblema pa due to corruption *cough* MRT-3 *cough*

    Tokyo - land of the many-people-walking-on-the-streets. But it has a railway system this advanced..



    On the otherhand, Manila has Binay's 350 hectare estate and the world's most-expensive parking building worth Php2 billion and our railway system is like this..



    Hindi ko alam kung magmumura ako sa galit or matatawa nalang out of pity.

    Iba effect sa traffic pag sale ang mall. I believe robinson galleria sale din.

    Punyets! Palabas pa lang ng parking ng BSA haba na ng pila. Hanggang mamaya pa itong activity na pinuntahan ko.

    Back to the chicken and egg... close to Halloween. Payday weekend. Lots of people are going to want to shop... so... to make them come to your particular mall... have a sale!

    All the malls are crowded this weekend. All of them having sales. And all to keep people from going to other malls...
