we were crawling along EDSA when i spotted a URL flash on that screen along guadalupe bridge: http://www.dbprororace2008.com.
it's a race using our very own RORO (roll-on, roll-off) transportation system, sponsored by the development bank of the philippines. and i was really surprised to find out that this is actually the third "season" of the contest. where was i when this was being advertised?!
never mind the million, if i get to join a contest such as this, i'm just going for the fun and adventure, and to find out if i can hack it. i'd like to know just how far i can go. even with my harrowing experience using the RORO some years back, i'm pretty excited to join this contest. unfortunately, i won't be able to join this year, because i already have a scheduled trip from november 7 to 12. tsk, too bad.
but for those of you who are interested to join, check out the dbp roro race 2008 website. they've posted everything you need to know, from how to join, to this year's race route. the race will be starting in bohol and will end in manila, with 9 pit stops in 6 days. phew!
i am a bit confused as to why it's being held this time of year. aren't the seas less cooperative now than during the summer? oh well. i'm just glad they're doing something like this. i really think the RORO is a fantastic idea, and anything that promotes it is something i will promote, too.
