Friday, July 06, 2007

In Philippine history, anti-Marcos marches along the thoroughfare of Ayala Avenue served as a prelude to that led to the 1986 peaceful Edsa revolution and the same thing could be said for the Energy [R]evolution as electric-powered jeepneys are set to revolutionize the Philippines’ most recognizable icon, with a historic test drive along the busy streets of Makati City, the country's financial hub.
