    How to Get to Novaliches: Map, Commute, Directions

    Tutubi's sister used to live in Bagumbong, North Caloocan and he swears, whenever he went there, it's better to come home to Paete, Laguna due to long travel time. He usually went there via Blumentritt-Novaliches jeepneys, with their ear-piercing new wave music, and counter-flow style that earned them the tag: hataw!

    Map of Novaliches, Quezon City from OpenStreetMap available here. You can also browse other places and update the map (e.g. your hometown) if needed.

    This is guide for commuters on how to get to Novaliches by commuting where you can reach Holy Cross memorial Park, San Bartolome Church, SM Novaliches, Novaliches Mall, ABC5 TV station, Baesa, Gulod, Uniwide, Talipapa et al:

    An online map of Novaliches, from OpenStreetMap, can be found here for your reference. (you can even update the map if you're familiar with the area)

    How to commute to Novaliches:

    1. Via LRT Blumentritt station, you can walk to the jeepney station to board the hataw jeepneys plying the Blumentritt - Nova (Bayan) route and get off at Novaliches bayan or your destination (to get to Bagumbong or Deparo Road, you need to transfer to another jeepney on Susano Road near General Luis).

    2. Via MRT, there are vans-for-hire (v-hire) or fx shuttle service to Novaliches below the MRT North Avenue station (southbound), at Trinoma Transport terminal, SM City North EDSA transport terminal and even in front of WalterMart North EDSA mall (near Munoz and LRT Roosevelt Station)

    3. EDSA buses with signboard Nova (bayan) go straight to Novaliches. The route is always EDSA (from Makati), right to Congressional Avenue, left to Mindanao Avenue, right to Quirino Highway onwards to your detination.

    4. From SM City Fairview, you can ride jeepneys going to Novaliches via Commonwealth Avenue (minimum fare only)

    *SM Novaliches is just 8 kilometers from EDSA, Munoz for travel time of 10-20 minutes.

    Driving directions to Novaliches:

    From Makati, head towards EDSA Balintawak but turn right to Congressional Avenue, left to Mindanao Avenue, right to Quirino Highway to your destination. There are alternate roads via Commonwelath Avenue, Zabarte Road and Jordan Plains Subdivision but Tutubi is not so familiar with the route.

    Iam familiar with the long travel via Quirino Highway from Blumentritt to Novaliches Bayan. And true... it's better to go to Paete via the East Road hahaha. Have you visited the old church in Bayan. They did massive renovation there sayang. There is also another church worth seeing in Sangaangdaan-Tandang Sora, where the miraculous image of the beheaded saint Sta.Quiteria is enshrined.

    The Beast is a place and the social decay which emerges. The Anti-Christ is the bullshit.
    The Anti-Christ is the positioning, whether enforcing the historical perception of the Holocaust, refusing to acknolowdge the existance/capability of Artificial Intelligence or the clone host fakes who infest society's upper eschelons, those whom the gods use to enforce the BigLie which compells people to incurr evil through temptation.
    The gods are composer, conductor and the clone hosts are their symphony, the tools they use to manage Planet Earth and the disfavored who reside.
    Everyone "going along" is part of the problem. Ironically, this may be where you "earn" your place in the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize".
    This is the REAL battle of good and evil. Take it or leave it.

    Sex is a temptation that the gods used throughout history among the grossly disfavored but more inclusively in this day and age. Relegated to the most disfavored in milenia past (Italian hedonism, etc) now their patriarchal positioning was used in the modern era to spread this mindset throughout the Western world. Instead of experiencing decency as we did by marriage at 15, the men's disfavor has run roughshot, and their sexual impulses as well as their corruption/preditory nature have defined the enviornment for everyone, including the females. To belong the females must sink to their level, ensuring a declining level of favor for everyone and a stagnant population, unable to progress forward.
    We see this frequently in the black community. Without the controls experienced by slavery and the KKK the people get out of control due to their morbid disfavor, and the result is dead 3 year-old children in drive-by shootings and 10 year-old prostitutes. The same has occurred with the males in Western societies, for they have similar abject disfavor which, left unchecked, develops into socially destructive behavior.

    Many tactics were used to achieve the decline we realized as we slipped away from sexual decency, but the effective result was deterioration down to the level of OUR blacks, the Italians, ironically. The gods are punishing the people, and we need to abate the destructive behavior which has dragged us individually and collectively towards the edge of the abyss.
    The decayed state of society is a result of the female's failures to maintain control over the men, and the resulting inevitable Apocalypse will be their fault.
