Literally. Need termite (anay) control? A new house? Jack hammer? Plumber (tubero)? Then jot down these numbers. Just don't forget to dial 632 first—63 is the Philippines' country code, and 2 is Metro Manila's area code. STUCK IN TRAFFIC SERIES #1

We have that kind of vertical litter here, too. I call it utility pole spam.

I came via Eki's blog..first visit. Why would the average person need a jack hammer? LOL..Michelle

Hola Hilda. Me ha hecho gracia la palabra tubero, una palabra española pero que nosotros no usamos. Por lo que veo todavía queda algo español en Filipinas.

Gracias por tus visitas y en cuanto a tu pregunta en mi fotografía "Guadalest", efectivamente no es una casa, es el campanario de la iglesia.

Everything one needs for a home at one place. How convenient is that? :-)

Hmmm ... :) I like this idea of one-stop shopping without going to the mall or having to open your yellow page book. Interesting post, Hilda.

BTW, thank you for the comment you wrote about on youth nationalism/patriotism post. I know for myself that Filipinos are very patriotic. Just wondered why you said, your government makes it difficult for the people to take part in your National/Independence Day celebration?

You'd have to have a pen and paper (or camera) with you as you'd never remember all those numbers!

Interesting, on the 'Jack Hammer' sign it says "Let's Keep our City Clean"!! Must not apply to utility poles.

Easy to find such as thing in my town. but now, no trees to stick it anymore..

Priyanka Khot said...

hey even our trees are used as tac boards for local advertising. World is small and same... hehehe

nice pic. Gave me ideas too. :D

Interesting advertising concept! Thanks for taking a look at my site! I don't think they were very worried about the seperation of church and state in 13th century Italy! :) The buildings are attached all the way around the old town as a system of defence against invading Saracens.

You were wondering why you were stuck in traffic the other day. Look no further: if everyone stops to read and write down the numbers... ;)
