mga kwento at haka-haka ni kakang pepe

it's now official!

batas na dito sa singapore na kailangang stainless steel ang rivet ng mga casement type window. failing to do so by october next year, will burn a big hole in your pocket -- a crippling $5k (about 165k php), a 6-month jail, or both.

absurd ba?!

i don't think so. considering the uptrend of windows crashing down, which can really be fatal.

it would cost you $100 for rivet replacement. a measly sum, considering the trouble you would be in, if you don't comply. DIY (do-it-yourself) is a no-no, you have to get a licenced contractor.

you may be asking; "paano kung wala kang datung"? the 'all knowing' singapore government got that figure out. they will subsidize, or even shoulder the whole cost--if you are genuinely incapable of coughing up the money.

isa 'to sa mga attributes ng singapore na patok sa akin -- the way they make the citizens toe the line, for the common good. which, by the way, is worth replicating sa bansa kong mahal.

kita mo naman sa atin, kapag mokong ang pulis; bakasyon muna sa zambales. kapag gas refuelling station ka, and you are rigging your meter; 400php for first offense, 800php for second offense.

anak ng putakte...are these deterrent?!?!
