Ever wonder where they make those jeepney signages? These designs, for some, are becoming pop art icons of local public transportation. (And call the number in case you want to have one made.)

Queueing is an indicator of civility and discipline. However, it is remarkable that people, in this case students, wait in queues for a public transport ride; but outside the confines of the university, commuters scurry for a jeepney space.

They come and go: north-bound and south-bound metro trains meet while in transit. There is an urban legend I heard from the film Kiseki (2011) that the intense energy created by two trains passing by each other can grant the wishes of someone witnessing it. It is only possible for fast-travelling trains, the likes of a shinkansen, though.
