Moped or no moped?

{Dear abashed reader, that is mo-ped, like motorcycle, like fun on wheels. Wheeeeeeee!}

Filipino cultural assimilation is in abounding force as we ask ourselves the better catechism yet: are we activity to purchase, drive, and affliction for our actual own moped for the abutting 11 months?

Pro-moped thoughts:

  1. Everyone abroad does it.
  2. The added 5 bodies drive a scooter or motorcycle or bike taxi.
  3. I could get to the grocery abundance and aback in beneath than 3 hours.
  4. We could drive to the mall.  Beep beep.
  5. I would no best charge to bear myself assimilate the bench/laps of bodies on the Jeepney.
  6. My shoes wouldn’t accept “mud” all over them.
  7. It will be the coolest affair I’ve anytime done.
  8. I wouldn’t accept to adjudge what to say/who to attending at/where to hide/what facial announcement to use back bodies bark affable things at me while I’m walking home.  Amusing stress.
  9. I wouldn’t accept to see asleep bodies on the alley while walking home.
  10. I wouldn’t accept to walk, period.

Anti-moped thoughts:

  1. Death.
  2. Injury.
  3. Fights over who gets to drive it.
  4. #3 was a lie because I would acutely not drive – the cartage bearings actuality is agnate to a blindfolded three arena circus, and the aftermost affair anyone needs is me assuming to apperceive what I’m doing, on a moped, aberrant in and out amid roosters and Jeepneys and devious dogs.  Which goes aback to #1.
  5. Me not driving.

    Go advanced and get one. Your description of cartage reminds me of back I went to China. We were all assertive these drivers were insane–until we accomplished there were ACTUAL FEW accidents and that because they had to be active at all times, they are BIGGER drivers than we are in our big cities.

    Think about it–how abounding times accept you pulled up abutting to a disciplinarian who seemed catatonic and not absolutely advantageous absorption to the road? Or texting, or on a corpuscle phone?

    Try active through the streets yourself. You ability be afraid at your bigger active abilities aback you get aback to the states!
