11 Things Only People Who Work In Makati And Live In QC Can Relate To1 min read
You spendÂ three to four hours of your life on your dailyÂ commute to Makati from Quezon City (or somewhere equally remote) and back. Doing the math, that’s aboutÂ 60 toÂ 80 hours a month, or 720 toÂ 960 hours a year. Forty days of yourÂ precious lifeÂ spent on traffic and harsh livingÂ conditions every year.
But such is the life of a true working-class hero. If there’s one person who can attest thatÂ the struggle is real, it’s you. We’re talking about these struggles:
1. In dire situations when you canâ€™t even afford a simpleÂ Jollijeep spaghetti meal, you pack your own lunch and make sure itâ€™s safe from unwanted elements.
2. Youâ€™ve had your share of misadventures with colorum vehicles.
3. YouÂ sleepÂ while the sun is up and wake up when itâ€™s dark, and vice versa.
4. You alwaysÂ comeÂ prepared for all kinds of weather.
5. Youâ€™re used to hearing, â€œKuya, pakibaba ako sa may Pag-ibigâ€ onÂ jeepney rides from Bel-AirÂ Buendia.
6. The distance has taught youÂ that love isn’t supposed to be easy, but it should be worth it.
