    If you have inquiries.., quest for the right guy. .. Mr. Policeman. They do their job by heart. It's so disappointing to find out that trYk dRivers and some people (there..grrr..!) fool even their fellow Ilokanos. I asked my cousin to accompany us to Vigan to be safer.. but still.. ggrrrr...

    1. The buses charge the same rate in transpo fare .. good. When we got off the bus to Vigan tryks were there waiting for passengers .. so there.. we asked one manong tryk driver to take us to Baluarte (a JUngle PArk owned by Chavit Sinsgson). The guy was like unsure of the rate he's charging us. He even spoke to my cousin in Ilokano and finally settled with P60. He said the place was rather far even if it's still in Vigan proper... we okayED. blablablah.. it's far. How come the tryk that we rode back to the same terminal charged us just P30...? that was half of the latter.. 'pissed me off.

    2. When we were looking for mercuRY drugsTore there's this guy standing by a pharmacy along the sidewalk where we were heading. Before us were 3 girls looking for the same drUgstore and they asked that guy. We overheard him saying that it's far (the drugstore) and for sure it's closed already. I supposed he owns the pharmacy where he's by standing..uhmm?? He smilingly invited the girls to buy their stuff there instead. Since we could only buy oUrs in mercury drUg we continued the path leading there. We saw it's OPeN. dUHhh??!! it's still open... It's not far either. It's juSt a few blocks away from his pharmacy. dbaegh..?!
