No second circumcision for me!

I'm back! I was out, 20 days, but I'm back! Work pressures and some other thoughts made me stop blogging for a while... But the heck, I'm back in one piece.

Finally, Mayor Aguillo of Cabuyao, Laguna made up her mind in rehabilitating the Pulo-Diezmo Road. Damn, I bet that I be circumcised again if there will be no road repairs one week before the start of filing of candidacy. My 11 years stay in Cabuyao, Laguna is enough for me to predict what will happen during this period. Thanks God!

Now I am betting another one. The rehabilitated road will be damaged again in two years.

Well, what can I say? Three elections. Three road rehabilitations. Same road. Same road. Motorists using this road are quite happy seeing a bunch of workers rehabilitating that crucial artery of Cabuyao, Laguna despite the heavy traffic. But not much.

Why do I sound so negative??? Why?

Because, while the municipal engineering of cabuyao trying to fix the road, with all this road rehab budgets, and all... they still did not put any storm drainage in that artery... It's plain and simple engineering solution. Drainage! Constant flow of water destroys even the toughest concrete and that is always the reason why this fucking road is so damaged a year or two before elections!

Then the storm season comes. Floodwater flowing from the South Luzon Expressway down to the low-lying areas passing through Pulo-Diezmo Road to San Carlos Village... for months. With heavy lorries passing through this road everyday... Thanks God there is Discovery Channel!

It will always be the same old story. Another road rehabilitation in January of 2010. Another budget. Another pork barrel funding. Another shit.

Makes me think... Hmmm. Is this political tool really makes sense?

But the hell! There will be no second circumcision for me. At least this time...

Right you are, Jay. Yong kapatid ko ngang high school pa lang alam ang solution ng rough roads doon. Ewan ko ba kung paano mag-isip ang engineer doon sa munisipyo ng Cabuyao. Kung taga-doon lang ako, dehins ko iboboto ang mayor ngayon doon.

Sorry guys for the late response....

Cylan, that road REHAB will bever end man... hahaha!

Ate Eyna, hmmm... ang daming kababalaghan talaga ang nangyayari sa pilipinas pag palapit na ang elekyson. Kahit nga ang di kailangang basketball court sa gitna ng kalye nagagawa maipinta lang ang mukha sa board.

Kuya hermie, sir! Pumunta pa dito sa village namin yang si mayora para i-induct kaming mga officers dito. anak ng baklang tipaklong, nilitanya lahat ng projects nya sa loob ng halos tatlong taon na panunungkulan... mga 2-room school buildings ata yun. Nasa isip ko, kailangan pa bang sabihin nya yun e basic projects yang mga school buildings na yan? E yung daan na nasa harap mismo ng property nya ay hindi nya maayos-ayos. Sadly, mukahang sya pa rin mananalo or si Alimagno, na pinsan nya. Cabuyao, ano na???
