Drunk Korean diplomat figures in car accident

IF I got the information right, a Korean diplomat caused a vehicular accident last month somewhere in Metro Manila and even tried to run away to avoid responsibilities.

Why the arrogant Korean Embassy executive tried to run away is still unclear but there were indications that he was very drunk when the mishap occurred after midnight.  He was allegedly driving an official car.

The driver of the other car, a Filipina, was unhurt but her car was damaged.

This corner will try to get the attention of the Korean Embassy and the Department of Foreign Affairs the moment we get full details of the incident.

Maynilad is inserting pipes beneath CAA Road in Pulang Lupas Dos in Las Piñas City probably to improve water supply in the locality.

In the process, they are digging up a long portion of the avenue, causing inconvenience to the public including motorists.

As usual, a Maynilad sign is up urging the people to bear with the company. It also somehow explains that after the short period of inconvenience is a long time of relief.

The thought of the message makes sense but not entirely. After the digging and installation of the pipes, water may continuously low in the area but not the traffic. This is because Maynilad doesn’t bring back the road pavement as it used to be.

The local government should make sure its roads get their original state each time they are deformed by private utility companies.

Utility firms are destroying our cities and LGUs are too laid back on this matter.

Officials of the Kapa Community Ministry, a group claiming to be religious, are in hot water over a Ponzi scheme.
What is a Ponzi scheme?

Investopedia says a Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investing scam promising high rates of return with little risk to investors.

The Ponzi scheme generates returns for early investors by acquiring new investors. This is similar to a pyramid scheme in that both are based on using new investors’ funds to pay the earlier backers.

Despite our many lessons about this scheme in the past, many Filipinos still fall prey to it. And many observers still ask the reason why.

It’s because many of us are still poor and we want to get rich in the fastest and easiest way. But as we learned over and over again, there’s high risk and cost to quick and no sweat bucks.

The surest way to sage, good, happy and successful life is education.
