yes quite obviously he was acting premeditatively.  :biggrin_01:

No doubt .... started the rot midway into a journey ... 

You can bet that this wasn't his first rodeo.

My question is, what other alternatives are there to taking a white taxi to the airport?

Usually I take a bus to the South Terminal and get into a white taxi to take me to the airport. Then the driver usually tells me the meter is broken, so he will charge a flat fee of 700 pesos.

Then I get out of the taxi and he yells to me, okay, I will use the meter, to which I reply "buh bye".

I then ask the next taxi driver on line if his meter works and he says yes. I say good, can you take me to the air port, to which he says "sure".

Question is...what will be the best alternative to get to the airport from South Terminal if no white taxis will go to the airport?

 

I guess that you are talking about Mactan airport ?

Get of the bus at the my bus end station at the border Minglanilla and Talisay

take my-bus express to SM City, then my-bus to the airport

no taxi involved

I think he's talking about NAIA. Manila probably has a South Bus Terminal too.

Thank you. That certainly is an alternative. (Yes, I did mean Mactan).

Ok, then the taxi ban is in Manila, not Mactan.

Lets get back on the path here fella's ... I've let a couple slide ...which is quite often a mistake because you just keep ending up too far from the main road , just hid 1 post now about Brad Pitt and Hulk Hogan living in a taxi with 9 kids .....
