If there’s one thing that I am grateful of our national government, that’s the provision of Light Railway Transit Line Two, that connects Santolan, Pasig City and Recto, Avenida in Manila in less than 25 minutes or so. I am one with the riding public.
I was happy this Monday afternoon, not only because my family and I enjoyed the 72nd anniversary promo of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts at Gateway Mall (see post below), but I was in great awe when I went down the escalator of Araneta Center Cubao station as my son and I reached Gateway Mall via LRT , because we saw an exhibit of paintings at the station itself, right before the entrance to the mall.
The art works were about PINOY LIFE in LRT. And I so like the idea of putting together upcoming great Filipino artists in a contest-exhibit about the public train I ride on most days of the week.
I take LRT (line two) rides from Quezon City to Recto going to my work in Manila in less than 20 minutes. I only give 15 minute-allowance for waiting for the train to shuttle me to Manila and the same cycle I observe from Manila and back.
I’d like to show you how talented Pinoys are with these wonderful works of art about OUR LIVES inside the train.
I will appreciate comments whether or not you agree with me that these paintings are to be proud of. Thanks 🙂
I’m just apologetic to the participating artists for not noting their names and the titles of their masterpieces for we were in a rush; I took these photos in a blink.
Texting and mobile use inside LRT….
I thought this painting is so cool…astig ‘no?
I’m not in favor of those LRT trains decorated vandalized with poster-stickers that boast of the goodness of her governance in the Pinoy economy, c’mmon give me break, get real! or better get a life madame! I want this blog to be apolitical but moments like these, I get hypertensive, LOL. These thoughts are delusional! … But I like how it was depicted in this painting… irony? satire? 😛
This one shows social equality, that LRT is a public means of transpo for ‘all walks’ of life.
Sadly, courtesy and chivalry are two inapparent practices inside LRT….
This purse contains some bills and of course that LRT automated ticket…
Just like the artist who painted this, I also wonder how our great ancestors would have used this transpo during their era if LRT trains have existed decades ago… Or care to wear those Filipiniana costumes inside those trains especially during RUSH HOURS? LOL 😀
Thoughts of our National Hero about the topic…
I like this abstract or pop-artish interpretation of life inside that train… vivid, vibrant colors can be equated to our different views, opinions about life, and our lives per se.
