Instead of writing about it, I’ll let her pictures paint a gazillion words! But, two words: uberly awesome!

Photo ad from Belo

Here’s a look-and-see of the billboard ad along EDSA (is that Guadalupe?)

Let’s capture Angelicopter from her personal photos.

Photos above came from her Facebook Page.

Okay, best I describe her. She’s Angelika Schmeing-Cruz (yeah, that’s a hyphenated married surname – too bad) using the radio deejay call sign Angelicopter at Magic 89.9 FM. You can listen to her during Mondays through Thursdays starting at 6:00am Manila time.

She definitely beats the Lovi Poe Bench Billboard at EDSA that was Head-turning and Eye-straining

TV5 and MMDA Introduces Metro Manila Traffic Navigator

leave a comment »

InterAksyon of TV5 News and the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) of the Philippines recently launched a traffic navigator that visually displays major intersections along each of the major thoroughfares of Epifano delos Santos Avenue (EDSA), Quezon Avenue, Espana Avenue, C5, Roxas Boulevard and the South Luzon Express Way (SLEX), and labels each according to a traffic category.

The rendition of the graphics is akin to subway and roadway maps people are familiar worldwide, like the United States, Canada and the U.K. Besides this familiar display, the “Line View” provides intersection per thoroughfare status. It also uses “Google Map” to display an actual view of the major thoroughfare and the traffic situation.

Below the page shows MMDA’s Facebook and Twitter updates.

I didn’t even know who Lovi Poe was until I saw that huge Bench billboard along EDSA (going towards Guadalupe area).

Simply alluring, don’t you think?
