LOOK: Joyce Pring laments Manila traffic, shares ‘Angkas’ experience
Be it celebrities or not, no one in Metro Manila is saved from traffic, and television host Joyce Pring is just one of the latest to share her experience in trying to beat the transport menace.
Pring said her trip took two and a half hours to get to Ortigas from Makati, which involved riding a car first before switching to ride-hailing service Angkas just to reach her destination on time, as stated in her Instagram post earlier today, Dec. 18.
“TWO AND A HALF HOURS from Makati to Ortigas. I left the house thinking it’d take me max 1 1/2 hr to get to my event, but lo and behold, I had been in the car for 30 mins and the traffic was NOT MOVING,” she stressed.
Pring, who donned a striped red-and-yellow dress, can be seen wearing a face mask and a helmet while on board the motorcycle in the series of photos.
“So I got out of my car, booked for an Angkas, took off my heels, put on some pants on top of my dress, and rode at the back of the kuya who brought me to work ON TIME. What a life we are living, Manila traffic!!!” she said.
Pring then noted how important it is to be professional, and that people should still make it on time for meetings or commitments despite the traffic problem.
“We must always operate on professionalism and respect for the people we work with,” she said. “Be on time, make no excuses, and when you make mistakes, know to apologize and be better.”
Pring went to Ortigas to host for Meralco’s Christmas party yesterday, Dec. 17.
In October, militant group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan claimed that Metro Manila was experiencing a “mass transport crisis,” following the problems all three rail stations in the Metro experienced at the time.
Navigation service Waze, meanwhile, claimed in the same month that Metro Manila is the world’s worst place to drive in.
President Rodrigo Duterte back in June vowed that he would make the travel time from Cubao, Quezon City, to Makati reduced to just five minutes. /ra
