QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manil Bureau) – Victoria Sports Tower, located next to GMA Channel 7 on EDSA in Kamuning, is reportedly the largest indoor sports complex in the world. One can only imagine what it would cost to become a club member.
Well, leave it to the smart officials of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to come up with a much cheaper alternative to a daily workout for just P5 a day!
Today, MMDA announced it will begin charging a “toll’ fee or P5 each time someone crosses the “footbridge to heaven.”
The footbridge, located just next to Victoria Sports, has been criticized for being too steep, especially for seniors and people with disabilities.
But the MMDA thought of a brilliant scheme for the “toll” which would be a thousand times cheaper than becoming a member of Victoria’s gym. Not to mention being a more effective way to lose weight and tone muscles.
So what are you waiting for? The choice is yours: P5 each each way, or thousands of pesos for gym access?
