Crappy Tanduay TV commercial

I am glad that out of three adult male children only one actively drinks alcohol. The other two do not even drink nor smoke. But this guy, he does them all: drink, smoke, online games and way before, girls :-)

Obviously, alcohol is not exactly a drink I like for any of my loved ones. I have seen alcohol and its awful effects. I have seen it ruin a cousin, turning to be a bummer, instead of harnessing his potential. He used alcohol to indulge his personal problems. Eventually, alcohol led him to taste a "prison break". (if only very briefly) because we knew "very important" people.

So where is this all going?

I saw Tanduay's ad on TV. I was dismayed that they were using a car racing scenario to promote a particular alcoholic beverage. I don't see any sense at all. What are the ad makers thinking?

This is a very dangerous thing? It is like saying drinking is fun, is glamorous, provides an environment of competition, regardless, if you are racing a car. Whoa!

What a waste of advertising copy "talent", if at all.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
