The Jeepney is mine!

On the 30th March 2007 this Beauty :-) of a Jeepney changed its owner.

It will give me and the driver income every day its on the road, the driver also handles maintenance.

Luckily Karens brother is working for "the jeepney organization" being a great help here!

What is a jeepney? It is like a taxi/buss, it goes the same route every day, you can enter and get off almost anywhere along the route. The minimum fare is 7 pesos. (a little less than 1 NOK)
The route of this one is:
Saint Anne (Sta. Ana in tagalog), Tulay, Paco, Leon guinto, via Padre Faura

It might look old but it should last a minimum of another 10 years, and in less than 2 years I should have got the invested money back.
Thats a pretty good interest rate :-)

Now.. every jeepney here (except this one) has a "Logo" on the shiny front panel above the front window, it is very common to have something like "Lord save our trip" or the owers name etc. This Jeepney of course needs a logo but what should it be...
Here in the Phillipines there is a TV show running every day called "Eat bulaga!" they have some sexy dancers making the show more interresting ;) Anyway... their current song is a hit so "everyone" knows the phrase "Itaktak mo!"
Meaning something like "pour me out" (as if your beer bottle says this and you have to empty it ;-) )
And that will be the logo "Itaktak mo!"
