For two weekends now, I'm practicing football again at Xavier in Greenhills. I've noticed that on both occasions, it took me 30-45 minutes longer to get there from Dasma, Cavite. It just reminded me of why I took a hiatus on football practice in the first place.
I always take South Superhighway in favor of the Coastal Road because the latter has this reputation of having the worst traffic jams this side of the earth. Although, South Super also has its share of jams, it's not as bad since most of the time, you see vehicles moving albeit at a slow pace. Coastal traffic is just horrible. Everyone's trying to get ahead of you and chances of getting nicked or bumped is up there in the 90s!
But then, I just read somewhere that the Alabang viaduct is going to be repaired starting early 2004. They'll be closing one side for repairs and the other side would have counterflows of vehicles running north and south. And you know what that means --- more traffic jams!
Guess that's my cue to take up another hobby and just stay at home!
