Everytime I go home from work, I ride Bus from Robinsons Ortigas to Munoz market. Yesterday, around 7Pm, I tried to get some pictures inside the bus I am riding. And I noticed that it is much the same using the MRT. Very crowded place and there's no assurance on your safety.
So I tried to compared the MRT from bus. I asked myself which is better, safe and at least the more convenient. And I conclude that it depends on the situation. If you are in hurry because you wake up late, it is better to ride the MRT. On the other hand, if you want to travel as well as watching video and you are not in hurry, it is better to ride the bus.The more chance you can sit compared to the MRT.

Now, its up to you what to ride.My opinions were just based on my experience. how about you?

Just this morning, I am at North Edsa MRT station around 7:30AM. Guess what? I arrived in my office around 9AM. An hour and a half is too much for a travel from North Edsa Station going to Ortigas Station. I took that long not because of the travel but because of so many people who were also waiting at North Edsa Station. From the Ground floor of the Station, It is already crowded. Men, women,elders, children have only one mission, to go to the top and ride the train.

It came to my mind that, how long was the MRT have been in operation? It seems until now, the problem on that issue is not yet solve.

What can you suggest in that problem?

The best way to ride for you to get fast going to your destination is through MRT/LRT yet more risk to encounter.
Around 7AM, the North Edsa MRT station is very crowded as shown in the pictures. These past few days, I used the MRT to go to my work. Using such kind of transportation has advantages and disadvantages for me. First, it is faster for me to arrive in my destination; no traffic at all and the fare is very cheap. It cost me 12 pesos from North Edsa to Ortigas Station. I mentioned that riding MRT/LRT is also risky. It is because, as you can see in the pictures, of the possibility to have stampede. There is no place for the weak here. The people there doesn't know how to distinguish genders, elders, children and pregnant women because this is the place where race happens. Race to be first o ride to the train. Another risky thing when riding to this train is that there is a lot of pick pocketers because of very crowded inside.
So it's up to you what to ride in going to your destination. All I can say is that, there is no safe place wherever you are, just take care and be aware always especially in the crowded areas.

For how many weeks, Quezon city experienced heavy rains. As a resident in Bago Bantay, I woke up early for me to prepare for work at Ortigas center because it takes an hour for me to travel. One day, around 530AM, I forgot to bring my umbrella when a heavy rain came. While waiting for the rain to stop, I used my time to take pictures on my surroundings.
