Nagpahayag ng sentimyento si Gary Valenciano sa term na “Philippine time”.
“Friends? I feel bad when the term ‘Philippine time’ is mentioned and is used on a person who simply doesn’t arrive on time. Sad no? Guys? Even when traffic is bad… we can still find a way to arrive on time. Kaya natin ‘to,” sey ng singer sa Twitter nitong January 22.
Humakot ito ng sari-saring reaksyon mula sa netizens:
@icanbeyourErO: “I appreciate the optimism in this; however, if the condition of the public transportation system will not improve, the commuters will continue to struggle to arrive on time. Imagine waiting to get a ride for HOURS and travel from one city to another for HOURS, too.”
@itsmeraymel: “Kung nagrereklamo ka sa layo at tagal ng byahe mo, well u have to think kung anong mas magandang way para di ka mahirapan mag commute.”
@skullohmania: “It’s not always the case, sir, especially for people who aren’t privileged enough to have a car. Being stuck in traffic is one thing, waiting for a ride is another.”
@TiuDarrel: “I never had a chance to have a car. I can barely afford using RTVS apps, cabs, etc. Pero never ako na-late. Nasa tao yan, wala sa estado ng buhay.”
@miyawnimuning: “Sa totoo lang po ayoko ng ginagawang excuse ung traffic dahil simula palang dapat sinasama na yung traffic sa oras ng byahe mo.”
Ang term na “Filipino time” ay kagawian ng mga Pilipino na dumating ng huli o mas matagal sa oras na pinagkasunduan. (IS)
