It’s Elections Day! And just few hours ago, I have finished fulfilling my role and right as a bona fide citizen of the country. LOL!
To our better judgment, I and my family decided to head to our voting precincts this afternoon. People are normally flocking in the mornings. So half past three, we went to the nearest elementary school in our barangay (where our precincts are). We were quite worried because of the numerous depressing stories we kept hearing the whole day. And when we arrived at the school, voila, the sweaty crowd, multitudes of traysikad (small three-wheel local cabs) and habal-habal (public utility motorcycles), and the whiff of fine dust greeted us.
