This is how the Old Santo Domingo in Intramuros looked like at the festivities beginning La Naval. at the Left Side is Old Santo Tomas and the Right is Santa Rosa.
UP Diliman Sunken Garden
It is officially named as the General Luna Parade Grounds but it is more popular as the Sunken Garden. No, the West Valley Fault system is still far from UP Diliman (approx 3km) so that is not the culprit for it giving the sunken name for the Sunken Garden.
Ateneo de Manila is actually nearer to the fault line.
Cobblestone Street, Intramuros, Manila
At the turn of the century, almost all of the major roads of Old Manila are of Cobblestones. The entry of the Americans paved them in asphalt.
I just wish that some roads of Manila could be Pedestrianized, just like what they did to Calle Crisologo in Vigan.
Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City
The Bawal Tumawid, May Namatay na Dito Road Signs have been taken down with a Use Pedestrian Overpass Road Signs. (Yey for dignified urbanity)
Commonwealth avenue once earned the monicker “Killer Highway” due to the staggering number of accidents registered in the 6 lane avenue per day, some of them having fatal casualties.
But two years since a new MMDA chairman took over, many things have been implemented for Road Safety: Motorcycle Lanes, Concrete Bus Separators and Bike Lanes from UP Diliman to Tandang Sora.
It looks like everything is working (except the Tandang Sora Traffic), rarely an accident happens because of the separation between Public and Private Vehicles, and commuting time in Buses is faster due to the dedicated bus stops in the road.
EDSA is the problem, and Commonwealth contains all the solutions.

I hope they just give the things they give away on blogs to people who actually need it. Or sell it then use the proceeds for activities that would benefit people who are in need. I don’t want to sound as someone who is pretending to be socially relevant because, believe me, I am the least socially relevant person ever. I just think blog giveaways are too self-serving which I don’t want to tolerate. Unless of course, you are giving away an iMac and I actually have a chance of winning it.
But, yeah. I hope people rethink. I know some of you, guys, are giving away things as a marketing strategy of some bigger organizations which tapped you for help. But you always have a choice what to do with it. You’re a blogger. You’re creative. Be a creative non-self-serving blogger.
Any link on where to donate to Typhoon Pablo Victims?
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
