Labor Day Demostrations
« on: April 30, 2018, 07:51:03 AM »
Folks,

From the UK.GOV Advisories yesterday.

<     Labor Day protests are scheduled to take place in several provinces and cities on Tuesday 1 May. A large scale protest is planned for the Mendiola area of Metro Manila, with smaller protests planned in several other sites across the National Capital Region and in other cities, including Cebu, Iloilo, Davao, Bacolod City and General Santos City.

Barangay elections are due to take place across the Philippines on Monday 14 May. Checkpoints and other security measures may be in place at election hotspots around the country.  >

See ( https://tinyurl.com/y9ooacxk ) for full details.

Stay Safe!

I usually find it better to make protest and election days, days of rest for me, I have to stay home and rest some days anyway due to health issues, so I just add those into my rest days in order to avoid running into any possible problems, so what do you all do or plan to do during those types of days?

Just daily routine.  I don't go near any of those areas as it is under normal circumstances.  I don't have to go far to get to anything and everything I need or want to do and if it is farther than walking, I usually go the back roads to or for it.
Whatever floats your boat.

Lee.

Living in the "sticks", one day is much like any other. Normally we go into the town (about 8 kms away)  on Tuesdays, as it is the day the farmers and traders set up a market behind the jeepney terminal. Great place to get that essential, must-have tool I can't live without  ;D

Then it's on to the local coffee shop for coffee and a fresh baked sticky bun. So we'll just give it a miss and have coffee on Wednesday instead.   :) :) :)

Last Labor and election days, nothing untoward was reported here-abouts, as most folks are just trying to earn a crust and can't afford to take a day of from work. Politics are quote "Something they do in Manila and it doesn't feed my family", unquote, according to my rice farming neighbours. LOL!

So me, as an Alien, will just potter around our place tomorrow, keeping a low profile as normal.

We should be fine, taking the wife today to Crosswinds Resort, Tagaytay, for 3 day/2 nights for her birthday.  Got a 1 bedroom suite for 58% on Agoda.

How about mine?  I am going to several places to find me another big metal rack, that does not cost too much, for my storage closet.

The wife called me this morning from down town. new glasses ready for collection.

Took a trip down and everything is open, normal Tuesday, total traffic chaos, around the farmers' market. Only thing to say it's a holiday is the banks and Municipality offices are closed.

Long lines at the ATMs and in the supermarkets, 'cos it's the first of the month, but everyone is too busy making money to worry about politics, the wife says.

Thank goodness for sane people, in a sane provincial town.

As long as you can avoid demonstrations, go for it!
