To Each and Every One of You…

Posted by BCS on December 25, 2008

Smile

Merry Christmas, if you’re Christian…
Joyous greetings, if you’re not.
Put all your worries in a bag today
And tie it with tight a knot.
Think of no reasons why you should,
Just be happy… no whys, hows, and whats.
Do, feel, and share all that is good
There can’t be anything wrong in that.

A Big Mess…

Posted by BCS on December 12, 2008

One afternoon, about two weeks ago, a truck passed through the intersection of Ongpin and Quintin Paredes Streets (corner of Binondo Church), leaving behind this mess.

A part of the truck had snagged some electric cables and the driver did not notice it until it was already too late. As the driver propelled his truck forward, two electric posts fell, bringing down with them huge bunches of thick cables, thus obstructing what had always been a very busy and congested stretch of road.

These photographs were taken on December 7, 2008, several days after the mishap occurred. The guys seen on the photos working on the mess are actually volunteers from the nearby fire brigade and other concerned individuals from the neighborhood. There was not a single Meralco man in sight.
