Philippines car spotting

It’s been a few weeks since the last time I posted on Oppo. While I’ve been away, I needed to go to the Philippines to attend a funeral. Since this is a car blog, I’d like to share with you guys the differences between the cars I saw in Manila and in my mother’s home province of Negros Occidental.

Apologies for taking pictures from a moving car instead of stopping.

Traffic enforcers at work in the Makati CBD. Stoplights are here, but Traffic enforcers are needed to control box blockers
A random jeepney.
(Negros occidental) Kei Trucks and Kei Vans can be found everywhere in the Philippines.
It’s harvest time for sugarcanes in Negros Occidental. Cane trucks are loaded with as much sugarcane as possible and then driven very slowly to the mill.
