Good news: Thanks to the ongoing 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit, many of us get to enjoy a long, long, long weekend away from the office. Bad news: Thanks to said Summit, we might be better off spending our rest days holed up inside the house.
As part of the event, the government has closed down certain areas and roads from the general public. This includes areas in Pasay City like the CCP Complex and the SMX-MAAX block, as well as sections of the Northern Luzon Expressway (NLEX), EDSA, and other roads. A stop-and-go scheme is in effect in certain areas to make way for passing foreign and local convoys—making them a no-go for the rest of us. Oh, and number coding will be in full effect from Monday to Wednesday.
A quick scan on social media yesterday showed the ire of disgruntled netizens affected by the rerouting schemes. Some saw the humor in it, while others weren't kidding around about their struggle. We've compiled a few of their posts down below.
How's the ASEAN traffic treating you so far? Have you been stuck in gridlock hell, or are you enjoying your long weekend as a recluse? Share your thoughts in the comments.
