Lost in Cainta

Date: April 1, 2010 09:00PM  (Maundy Thursday)

Event: Annual Panata (means similar to pledge) of people walking to Antipolo Church

Route: Antipolo City to Pasig City

GPS Used:

  • Garmin GPS (OSM Philippines Map)
  • Google Maps for iPhone

Naligaw sa Cainta

Situation Encountered:

  1. At Tikling Road, we were stuck in this human traffic, BIG TIME! 😦
  2. Ortigas Ext. to Cainta – heavy traffic
  3. Tried Manila East Road to East Bank Road (Floodway)
  4. Wrong turn at Rizal Ave.  suppose to turn at Highway 2000, stupid GPS
  5. Lost at the subdivisions of Cainta, relying on GPS, hoping to reached Floodway
  6. Reached Floodway by asking questions to the local residence on each corner.

Lessons Learned:

  1. Do not pass to Tikling Road (Ortigas Ext to Antipolo) on a Maundy Thursday
  2. Do not try something new without looking at the map first
  3. Free GPS map is not reliable on remote subdivisions
  4. Ask and believe to the residences of the place, they know better than STUPID GPS
  5. If lost look for Public Jeepnies, they will bring you to the main road.
