Just got invited to vote on Miss Bus Stop Contest but unfortunately I can't decide yet which one to choose as I feel that I would love to wait for a bus here anytime. I will wait for other representatives, am just truly sorry I cannot share any nice enough bus stop here in the Philippines.
I never really had much experience with bus stops since the system of transportation in the Philippines is quite different and less disciplined if I must say. Bust stops in the Philippines are either bus terminals housing not only several transportation buses going to different places but also food stalls and even supermarket so one can buy 'pasalubong' for their friends and loved ones. Or they are random bus stops somewhere in the middle of nowhere or in between stores. The one thing that those working in the corporate world doesn't like about is the fact that when riding the less expensive non-air conditioned bus or jeepney you don't seem to be in control of the passengers and a lot can happen. In fact you may look and feel good in your new corporate shirts and reach your office looking like you just got off your bed. Usually these yuppies ride the more expensive air conditioned buses, taxis or brave the MRT.

We have been so used to riding jeepneys which has also become an icon of sort for the Philippines. These jeepneys run their own routes and you just have to wait anywhere they pass so you can ride their jeeps and go to your destination. These jeepneys go around their own routes over and over again picking up passengers and unloading passengers when they reach their destination.
