Dear America,

Please import the following as soon as possible:

Lights to indicate the status of a parking stall

Green means go; red means full. This is especially lovely when those compact cars hide and deceive you into thinking you’ve hit the parking jackpot when you haven’t.

Two-dollar SIM cards

The SIM card doesn’t fit in your phone slot? Just trim it down!

A government-sponsored hotline for bad driving

I don’t know what qualifies as bad driving here yet, but I’ll let you know when I find out!

And last but not least, my personal favorite: escalator-ramps

How else would you get your grocery cart down to your car?

With thanks from Manila,
