Yamaha Fiesta 2009 Astig!

The only thing it lacks is/are a patron saint, the Norito’s can fill this in maybe haha! There’s even a procession look-alike as hundreds of bikers line-up while traffic policemen goes wacky designating a place for them to park. And lastly, Yamaha does not forget the Filipino style of pabaon or pabitbit, as they gave away thousands of jackets! Congratulations Yamaha Philippines (YMPI) for a very successful and memorable fiesta! Astig talaga ang Yamaha!

Yamaha Philippines gave justice to the word “Fiesta” at their recent bonggacious event the Yamaha Fiesta 2009!  Dedicated to all Yamaha motorcycle owners and biker enthusiasts like me! The fun-filled activity happened at the San Miguel by the Bay in SM Mall of Asia for almost a week.

Yamaha does it best! Just like what a Fiesta should be. Lots of games (roulette, shoot that ball, Bamboo look-a-like, etc..), test rides of their new models(bikes not girls lol), contests (Mio Customization and Best Paint Works), concerts (Mocha Girls, Bamboo, Paraluman and Sandwich), awesome stunt shows (by the Norito Brothers), fireworks display at night (Dragon Fireworks), and of course fiesta would not be complete without the food. All a biker has do is to choose from any of the five well-known food concessionaire at the SM Food Court, “parang handaan talaga na namimili ka ng menu mo, cool di ba?”. A rider who came from the province joke and said “Kulang na lang is for Yamaha to include an overnight stay at any luxury hotel rooms nearby for us, haha!”

The only thing it lacks is/are a patron saint, the Norito’s can fill this in maybe haha! There’s even a procession look-alike as hundreds of bikers line-up while traffic policemen goes wacky designating a place for them to park. And lastly, Yamaha does not forget the Filipino style of pabaon or pabitbit (schwag), as they gave away thousands of jackets! Congratulations Yamaha Philippines (YMPI) for a very successful and memorable fiesta! Astig talaga ang Yamaha!

Motorcycle Parking Discrimination

Im sure lot of regular motorcycle riders at this mall would feel the same way  I did today. I was about to park to my favorite spot when I’ve noticed that there seems to be no motorcycle anywhere? Both on the gutter and at the balcony. This is usually the spot where riders can park their bikes for free.

I decided to made a U-turn and go to their paid parking which is around 500-600 meters from the free parking. I approached the parking teller and told him my plate number as I usually does. On which he responded by saying “Sir hindi po dito ang entrance, dun po sa kabila” A bit shock and irritated since I have to circle again for another half kilometer,  I replied “Dito ako lagi dumadaan papasok ah?! To which he just shrugged.

“Walandyo! Magbabayad ka na nga ayaw ka pang papasukin, samantalang sandamakmak ang kotse, van at AUV’s around the mall na naka-park ng libre eh ok lang?! Hayy!”

I instead leaved the place and rode to the next mall, then bought the things I needed hassle-free! If you live from the East Side you’ll probably know this mall which is near a former president highway.
