Floating Tax collection office
Picture of the moment is a weekly series exhibiting pictures from around the world.
The Pagsanjan waterfall in Laguna Bay area in Philippines is protected by environment department. All the boats that go there have to pay a tax. And what better way to keep a tab on their traffic than to have a floating office ?
The tax collection officer on duty.
From another angle.
A wooden bench, a desk, a can of drinking water, some oars and local music. What else do you need to run this office ?
If you like this blog, I suggest you to become fan on Facebook fan page and check out my Twitter.
Oars for an office? Haha, this is interesting.
How about some stationery? You know, some pencils, pens, files… 😉
This is certainly very interesting! How does he collect tax?
Wow! What a life! Hopefully no rat race!
I bet there was no Internet in that office though 😆
// A wooden bench, a desk, a can of drinking water, some oars and local music// … also collecting Money … what more to ask for …..
Whoa. What an office! It would wash away my blues in a jiffy. 😀
So even the rivers are tolled!
On second thoughts… how will the detect if I travel underwater using a submarine?
Very very interesting… And probably the most beautiful office that I have ever seen!!
I don’t think stationary is that important compared to things I mentioned. 🙂
Funny? ??? How?
BTW, you are top commenter of this month. Good going. 🙂
How does he collect tax? Well, all the regular boats are numbered. The tax is collected on monthly/weekly basis. And positioning of the office is such that it is very easy to keep tab on other boats.
Do you want to join there? 😛
Yes, no internet. Sorry, you won’t be able to blog ! 😛
Yup, what more? 😛
Ha Ha… It did so for me as well!
River toll… Isn’t it a nice concept?
Well, the river is full of rocks.. famous for rafting and has too many sharp & blind turns. decide yourself. 😀
I think many of us would like to work there. 😀
Thanks but No Thanks.
I am thru with all races of the rodent kind! 🙂
Now is the time to live life King Size 😉
Please don’t show this post to all.. if our politicians and toll road operators see this, they’ll start tolling every river and canal… aleady all existing highways in India are being tolled
@Nisha: Funny as in .. “lol…what a cool idea”
Is there any reward for the top commenter?
And hey.. I see a leg in the pic “from the another angle”…curiosity…any insights?? 🙂
This is sooo great! Loved this!!! ha ha!! Amazing how creative people are.
Quite an innovative idea ! 😀
No, there is no reward, you greedy ! 😛
Being on top itself is a reward. Earlier Connie used to be top commenter every single month !
Ha Ha… thanks for reminding. 😀
Now I should go & show them your comment. It’ll definitely bring some revenue.
Yes, unfortunately I have slacked off, haven’t I? 🙂 Oh my- I better start putting my best foot forward again.
On another topic, I’ve noticed some of my other favorite blogs are not being updated by their authors. It seems the end of the year busy schedules got in the way. Thank you for being faithful to update yours.
Yes, you better do that. Now you have a competitor too!
Oh, is that so? Well, blogs on my list are ever so enthusiastic. I do not have any complaints. 🙂
And talking about myself, I have enough to write about to sustain for 2 more years without travelling even if I am being lazy to write only one post a week.
So much of backlog. 🙁
I travel more than I write here. Tomorrow I am off again. 🙂
@Nisha,Connie: I have also got similar complaints. A very favourite Hindi blog(very famous too) has not been updated since January last year. It was from an anonymous blogger so can’t even ask him/her 🙁
I don’t know when I will start blogging properly..damn it, I’ve been planning for real long.. always planning around whether to maintain a tech blog, literary or a travelog..maybe I will come up with a mixed one 🙂
nice and funny…btw, there’s internet there thru your mobile phones. my hometown is just about 15 minutes from Pagsanjan (pronounced Pag-san-han)…
I didn’t know about the internet thing. I guess it is for that office?
Next time I go there, I am coming to your place. 😛
