One of my prior blogs was about the Philippines ’ unique common carrier which we call PUJ or Public Utility Jitney. The present choke in the urban streets of manila will tell you that these “jeepneys” has long since outgrown its stereotype iconic look. What we have now is nothing short of the third-world Pimp My Ride versions of the plebeian wheels, so down with current Pinoy pop culture that it even has a name—Patok! Roughly translated, it means “winner”, “very good”, “the best”. If you happen to visit my country, don’t miss to ride the Patok! And it’ll surely make you feel like a winner.
