Anne Curtis rides the MRT for the third time

MANILA, Philippines - TV host and actress Anne Curtis was in a hurry to catch the live telecast of "It's Showtime" on Tuesday, April 17, that she decided to take the MRT again. This would be her third time to take the said public transportation.

Blogger James Hernando of Gravityymind posted some photos of Anne while inside the MRT. She was caught in one photo happily posing with a female fan, then seated with fellow passengers.

James, in his blog, lauded Anne's down-to-earth demeanor.

"Sa totoo lang [ay] madalang ka na lang makakakita ng artista na katulad niya na hindi mag-iinarte na magpa-picture sa mga tao kahit 'yung sumakay sa mga ganitong klase ng sasakyan walang problema sa kanya," he said on his blog, April 17.

The first time Anne rode the MRT was on July 5, 2011. The actress was then rushing to watch the concert of Kylie Minogue at the Araneta Coliseum. Coming from the airport and stuck in traffic, she felt she would not be able to catch up with the concert if she stayed in the car.

Immediately, Anne tweeted her first MRT experience, asking her followers on Twitter: "Hulaan nyo kung nasaan ako para makahabol kay #Kylie? :p,"

The message came with her photo that was taken inside MRT.

Then she posted a series of tweets.

"I'm in the girls area! They're all nice! Swerte daw ako at hindi masyado siksikan! :)"

"Don't worry guys! I'm with my angel Maryann! And mababait lahat ng girls! D magulo! Picture picture taking lang at chikahan!"

"I like the fact that there's a ladies and men's section! Thumbs up!"

In the end, Anne felt she made the right move.

"I can see the traffic on Edsa from here! I made the right decision! :)," she said.

On August 2, 2011, Anne again rode an MRT, this time to avoid tremendous traffic jam as typhoon Kabayan was wreaking havoc in Manila. She was then with her younger sister Jasmine Curtis Smith. She was trying to beat time as she would be late for her hosting stint on "Showtime."

Excitedly, Anne tweeted about her second MRT experience.

"MRT take 2 with @jascurtissmith! We're near na!!!! Showtime wait for us!!!"

This was followed by another tweet, "I think I should be the ambassador for public transportation na! Haha. I love how fast the MRT is! Can you get a card for it na pwede mag-load? Like an oyster or myki card?"

The actress lauded her younger sister's attitude in riding a public transit.

"Thanks to my beautiful baby @jascurtissmith for being game to jump out of the car, duck under the railings along Santolan, run up the flooded stairs with the rain pouring down as hard as and catch the MRT with me! Her sneakers and socks are drenched but I haven't heard a simple complaint!"
