Monobloc Trikes

At Burham Park you can see those tiny three-wheeled pedal vehicles. Kids rent them to playfully go around a short distance path of about 200 meters (I think) for an hour. Some have fancy looking roofs, some have “A” roofs, and some have no roofs. Those single seater ones are the most common but I have also seen several tandem ones. What truly caught my attention is the practical design of its seating. A Monobloc chair is removable, replaceable, readily available, and easy to clean.

Queue Chairs

Sitting queue at the COMELEC (Commission on Elections) voters registration in this precinct

Rows of chair are sometimes provided in queues for relief and comfort. The sequence is usually row by row (not column by column).  Specifically, row 1:column 1, then row 1:column 2, then row 1 column 3row 2:column 1, row 2:column 2, row 2:column 3… and so on.

From the queue chair's point of view

This sitting queue method is quite common in the country. Either butts synchronously slide to the next chair for the line to move, or if the next chair is a bit far that sliding becomes precarious, you’ll see people stand up, step sideways, then sit down (repeat n times).
