The traffic in Manila makes an equal of everyone in suffering, and celebrities are not spared.
As Anne Curtis put it, “Buti pa ang traffic, may forever,”
Her quip made news at the recent Smart x Uber event, where she also shared with the press how she beats traffic boredom.
“Nagpapa-ask ako sa Twitter kapag traffic, and my followers actually know this.
“Kunwari bigla na lang akong sumasagot sa mga ano [questions] nila.
“’Traffic to,’ lagi silang sumasagot na ganun.
“Snapchat everything... gumagawa ako ng video."
Snapchat is "a photo messaging app that allows users to take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to recipients."
Anne then proceeded to sharing three essentials to prepare for traffic jam.
1. Battery pack
“Dapat lagi kang may dalang battery pack kasi that’s your parang life when you’re stuck in the traffic to keep away from boredom.
“Battery pack for your charger sa laptop, to your phone."
In Manila, a rainfall is enough to cause a horrible traffic jam.
Don't forget to bring an umbrella, especially if you are a commuter.
3. Running Shoes
Her Twitter followers know she always packs her running shoes.
“Para itatakbo ko na lang ang EDSApauwi,” Anne answered with a laugh.
But on a serious note, she remarked, “Let’s hope, of course, with the adjustments now of the government, we'll see improvements in the traffic [situation].”
It rained heavily earlier, so traffic would be inevitable (well, it has actually become a way of life). We give you more tips: "Keep your cool, do not invite stress, sleep." Take care, guys!
