Pencil Background

They’ve even thought of making pencil no. 2 as background for jeepney route sign. So I’m leaving it here for posterity’s sake, before they start to gentrify jeepneys. I’m not optimistic at all if the government’s plan for jeepney modernization program shall be able to retain the masa art.

Reptile Embellishment 

Reptile as jeepney hood ornamentation. Horses are just too common isn’t?

Pickup Truck Jeepney

Normally red in color, this pickup truck transformed into Philippine jeepney-like vehicle is used as a means of passenger transport around Chiang Mai. I like the idea that there is a trash basket on one side of the step platform.

Jeepney Spare Tyre

image

Jeepney drivers must be acrobatically inclined. Apart from the ability to drive defensively in one hand while the other hand is collecting fare, a jeepney driver can apparently go in and out with ease. One could see that the driver’s door is significantly blocked by a spare tyre. And yes, that’s the standard location for the spare.

image

Driving tip: Distancia amigo, your side mirror will never be up against that spare tyre.

Benguet Jeepneys

image

Reminds me of John Denver

These are the mountain jeepneys seen along the Benguet-Nueva Vizcaya Road. Most of them are chartered ones traveling between Baguio and Kabayan.

Toyota Vios and Proton

Some water taxis (tambangs) in Kampong Ayer are personalized with automobile brand names and logos. In similar fashion, stickers, embellishments, or knickknacks associated with certain automobile brand have adorned some jeepneys in the Philippines.

Mountain Jeepneys

Jeepney designed for the steep climb to Batad saddle. I like how the headlights are framed by lizards and that lizard on the side mirror

Jeepney Fare Sorter Tray

image

A customized wooden tray for sorting coins with a recess for sorting rolled paper bills. Makes it easy for the jeepney driver to deposit fare and give change while handling the wheel at the same time.

Alikabok sa Barko (Dust from Ship)

Perhaps an overseas Filipino worker earned that jeepney by diligently performing housekeeping task in a cargo ship or cruise ship.

God in Mud Flaps

image

Gift of God / Smile God Love You

Every space in a jeepney can be a venue for masa art. Images such as zodiac stickers and Jesus Christ, writings such as dedications and Bible verses and also borloloys such as horns and horses. Philippines is predominantly Christian country so it’s not a wonder that in a span of 30 minutes I’ve sighted 3 mud flaps with God phrase.

Fog Lamps as Props

I have noticed that in south Cebu it is common to see jeepneys and tricycles having fog lamps as props. The more fog lamps the more macho it is.
