Experience Trolley





I remember this one time back in college. We were tasked to perform a play for our Humanities class. One thing that’s lame about it is that we were given one week to prepare for it. So, we resorted to staying in this house of July, one of our group mates. Her house is somewhat situated in the side train railings. This means feeling the grounds shaking every time the train passes by while were still snoozing away.
PUP is just near the train railings. This prompted us to take the famous “trolley” on our way to school. Trolley is a kind of ride that primarily runs through the train railings. The small vehicle is run by pure human strength so it is very friendly in this time of gasoline issues.
We stayed at July’s place for quite a while up until we finished our presentation. It was quite a thrill living with my group mates for a while. It was more fun to ride the trolley though. There are some “life threatening” zones in the so called “stations” of the trolley like the bridge in Pandacan area. There are some instances when trolley rides should be stopped because a train is fast approaching. Whoa! Talk about some life on the cutting edge.

After our satisfactory presentation for the subject; it’s time to pack our bags and bid goodbye to July’s super nice family. It’s also time to bid goodbye to the daily trolley rides. Recalling our presentation, I would like to apologize again to our technical director that time for my strong shout when the dubbing went flat. Sorry Airene! It’s not easy joggling the roles of a director and lead actor at the same time, so I hope you understand.
Its been a while since I last ride the trolley. Tara samahan mo ko , sakay tayo!
