In today's midterm elections the people of the Philippines could vote to get the right candidates for the 17,000 national and local positions.

This morning, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, former poll commissioner Virgilio Garcillano (known from the ‘
Hello Garci scandal’), and very important in this entertainment-driven country the actress Susan Roces were the first to vote. May Iwa, Ehra, Karel, Joyee, Amanda and Eula all win (please click on the photo above to see the candidates better). I am sure the six beauties will guarantee a better future for the Philippines.

Photo from this Monday morning (14 May 2007) along EDSA, Mandaluyong. Note there are no cars on this usually fully jammed intercity highway. Gloria was kind enough to provide a holiday to her folks. Why on earth can the Philippines not vote on a Sunday? Is it not the goal of all politicians to make the economy more competitive?

Why is the motorcycle driving on the very left? I thought in the Philippines you drive on the right side.
