Noise/Ingay

                                                                                                                                                       Cebu City, March 2010
Alam ko na sa maraming kalye dito sa atin, tricycle o motorsiklo lang ang pwedeng sakyan.  Convenient ang mga ito at hindi mahal.  Pero sa totoo lang, nakakainis ang ingay na dala ng mga tricycle at motorsiklo.  Ang iba hindi pa makuntento, may mga nakakabingi pang speakers na nilalagay sa kanilang tricycle. Noise pollution ang isa sa mga problema na hinaharap ng mga urban dweller.  At mukhang hindi na mababawasan pa ang ingay sa ating paligid kundi madadagdagan pa.

I know that many of our streets are accessible only to tricycles and motorcycles.  These are convenient and inexpensive mode of transportation.  Sad to say, the noise these machines bring is annoying and disruptive.  Some has even loud speakers that could wake up the dead!  Noise pollution is one of the problems we urban dwellers face.  And I don't think noise pollution in our neighborhoods would be reduced in the near future.


1.  What do you consider the most annoying noise?
2.  What is your favorite sound?

hmm...I really don't like the beeping sound of electronics. I especially don't like the electronic alarm clock beeps.
I love the sound of babies laughing...or anyone laughing for that matter.

I like that moped with the bananas on! :) But pollution, is a never-ending theme.. sad that we have to make pollution, in our beautiful nature, our mother's earth.. I hope we'll get more intelligent in the future.. still I doubt it sometimes..

Most annoying sound must be a noising machine or vehicle.

My favorite sound must be water and birds.. :)

Viola, those are not bananas.:p they're called "puso"--it's cooked rice in a woven coconut leaf.

Luna Miranda said...

needless to say, i find sound of tricycles and other vehicles annoying.

like hip-chick, i am delighted at a baby's and kids' laughter, my dog's purr when i scratch his tummy, sounds of nature--raindrops on leaves, waves crashing on the beach, birds chirping.

I'm glad you explained that those weren't bananas on the back of the bike. I thought they were also. This is a very enjoyable street scene photo, though I am sure the noise can get a bit much at times. Thanks for stopping by my WW post.

Ayoko rin ng ingay ng tricycle. Lalo na't gusto kong matulog..nanunuot kasi ang ingay sa tenga. mausok pa. maligayang LP! galing ng kuha mo:)

emarene said...

Litrato pa lang na imagine ko na ang ingay na dala nila. And sure, parang di nabawasan kung di nadagdagan ang noise pollution. Haay, buhay metro.

Carnation said...

maingay nga talaga yan. annoying yong mga drill at construction noise, pati na rin ang mga boses na malalakas at tawanan kung hindi sa lugar, esp sa mga tahimik sana na places sa public na nakaka-istorbo. gusto ko yong mga sounds na hindi nakaka-istorbo. kahit naman maingay minsan ok lang basta nasa lugar ma-appreciate mo rin... ito sa akin http://sweetcarnation.blogspot.com/2010/10/lp-ingay-noise.html

The most annoying noises to me are the loud motorcycles racing down the quiet neighborhood. We live in a very quiet section of town except that the long roads are whiny so the motorcycle-rs love it, and would come in groups to ride this wondrous view-ful road.
Favorite sounds are to my favorite songs. And of course the sound of tender and softness from my family.

Most annoying to me is the sound of a mosquito or fly buzzing around my head when I'm trying to sleep. My favorite sound is laughter, especially from someone I love.

Mukhang madadagdagan pa in the future ang noise pollution sa city.

1. I think what annoys me most are car alarms that go off especially in the middle of the night.

2. My favorite sounds are birds chirping or music.

Ann said...

what is the man carrying behind him on the bike?

Krislin Neo, Ting (Syracuse Pike) said...

1) The high-pitch sound cause by friction on glass, rubber kind of materials.. I don't really know how to explain that but it is annoying..

2) Birds chirping and the sound of waves

(1) Karaoke in the neighborhood. I wish people would not use microphones in residential areas when their karaoke room is not sound-proof.

(2) I love the chirping of the birds in my window every day.

upto6only said...

super korek. bakit nga ba nauso na pati motorsiklo eh may sound system na din at talagang todo pa ang volume nila hayyy.

happy LP

Pete Erlano Rahon said...

magandang tanong

1) noise pollution mula sa kalye ang annoying lalo na yung mga humaharorot at maitim ang mga buga...

2) I go for the sound of silence as as favorite - when you are attuned and at peace with yourself...

Sidney said...

Annoying: traffic
Like: birds

Cathy Kennedy said...

The screech of chaulk on a chaulk board for those of you who can remember such a thing or a similar sound is a metal chair legs being scooted across a hard floor. UGH!

The laughter of children is one of my favorite sounds or the cry of a newborn baby after delivery. Both are precious.

puso (rice in a pocket) ba yung karga ni manong sa motor? if yes, ang dami ah, papuntang Larsian siguro yan =))

eto ang aking LP entry

DoanLegacy said...

Agree with you completely about loud music.

1) Loud music that shaking up all the house on our street.

2) Sound of the ocean waves!

Thanks for joining us!

Donnie said...

Favorite is easier- a babbling brook but the first one I think would be a baby crying in pain. That just breaks my heart. I used to work for a pediatrician and there were moments you just couldn't breathe because a little one was suffering.

ilovepink1078 said...

Exactly, I agree with you.
For me:
1. heavy construction very annoying.
2. birds in the forest...

By the way, I followed you in google connect. Hope you do the same. Thanks

1) the most annoying noise for me would be car driving down my street with blasting rap music.

2) Soothing sound for me is water fall!

Gale said...

My children whining (actually, the MOST annoying noise would be my children whining at 4:00 am).

My favorite noise would be soft giggles.

SquirrelQueen said...

The noise of all traffic is annoying but the worst is when people start honking their car horns.

My favorite sound is music or the sounds of nature.

witsandnuts said...

As for your questions, I don't like the nonsense gossiping (there are sensible gossips LOL. I found that very irritating and noisy even if they are delivered in a murmury manner. On the other hand, I like the sounds of nature, especially the chirping of birds and raindrops.

Francisca said...

1. Worst sound: toss up between the horking sound just before spitting and a dentist's drill.

2. Best sound: my soul mate's voice (very personal... not really about the sound itself).

Luna, you'll have to give me the link to your post about Silangang Nayon. Can't seem to find it.
