Going to Resorts World

Resorts World Manila is a Casino/Maill right in front of NAIA Terminal 3. It is relatively new because the stores are not yet open. One of my friends work at Resorts World as a Poker dealer.

If you are taking Public Transport, the easiest way is to have access to LRT/MRT on Taft Avenue cor EDSA first. Once you get there, you need to look for the shuttle that goes to Terminals 1-2-3. The shuttle station is hard to find but it would be on the North bound side of EDSA together with the buses going to Batangas and the Jeeps going to Nichols.

The Shuttle Bus fare is 20 pesos only. It would take you directly to Resorts World in a matter of minutes. Just be patient.

Going back to MRT/LRT is no easy task as well. The fast way is to ride the Jeepney that goes around Nichols, alight at 7-11 where all the Jeeps going to Baclaran awaits (but do not ride these jeeps). Walk a little bit farther. You will see 6-seater trikes that would take you to EDSA. You may then walk to the MRT station if you must.

So there you have it. I wish you goodluck on going to Resorts World.

LTO Success

Balikan muna natin ang aking TO DO List for 2010.

Ang nangunguna sa listahan na yun ay ang pagkuha ng driver’s license. At sa wakas, makatapos ang siyam an buwan, naglakas ng loob na rin akong pumunta sa East Ave. LTO Main Office para kumuha ng aking non-pro na license. Hindi kasi pwede sa Mandaluyong Satellite Office ang pagkuha ng non pro.

Akala ko e mauulit ang kapalpakan ko dati. Hindi na pala ngayon. Inagahan ko talaga ang pagpunta dun. Nagpamedical kaagad ako sa unang mag alok sa akin ng serbisyo at nagpa drugtest na rin.

Kumuha agad ako ng numero. Number 18. Ayos, mababang number pa to. Tinawag ang aking number, nagpasa ako ng requirements, at nagreview sa lecture room. Una kong kinuha ang English lecture pero parang mas mahirap kaya Tagalog na lang ang talagang inaral ko.

Matapos akong picturan, bumalik na lang ako sa Lecture room dahil malamig dun. Written Exam ang kasunod; pumasa naman ako. Practical Exam, ayos lang din kahit namatayan ako ng dalawang beses habang hindi pa umaandar ang sasakyan. Nakalimutan ko na may hand break nga pala.

Alas Dos na ng hapon nang makuha ko ang aking lisensya. Tuwang tuwa ako dahil lisensyado na akong magmaneho.

Eto nga pala ang Schedule of Fees na binayaran ko:

  • Drug Test – 300
  • Medical – 100
  • Testing Fee – 168
  • Car Rent – 250
  • License – 418

O pano? Road Trip na to!
