" a greener place "

Here in Manila, where the roads are mostly filled with pollution and dirt,
It's uncommon to see rows of forest like trees,
this one is seen along Roxas blvd near
the cultural complex.


and on another note:

starting today,
smoking will be strictly prohibited in public places-
i.e hospitals, gasoline centers, national parks, gov't buildings and
even public transportation.
Whoever breaks the law will be fined,
first offense amounting to 500 pesos = roughly 10$ or community service.

It's definitely one of the good news that the government has enacted,
but the question is- will it work? and how long will this last?

Happy MOnday all. ^-^

I would also like to say Thanks! to iAMafilo for commenting on my blog,
for adding bits and pieces of infos regarding structures and its history.
Manila has always something intersting esp. in its past,
If I had known I will be blogging about it,
I wish I would've paid more attention to my history teacher back then.
so, tnx for dropping by, really appreciate it. ^0^

  1. Parang hindi Manila ;)

    No smoking in public places? Good news indeed!

  2. Lovely image! Great post. Thanks.

  3. Luster of fresh leaves is shimmering. Soothing and refresing scenery. Wonderful shots!
    It is very good news that smoking is prohibited in public places. I don't like that stincky smell.
    Have a great day.

  4. We don't have very much green either. But this spot looks lovely! And as I don't smoke myself, I have to say that I think it's a great idea to ban smoking in public areas. Hope the idea sticks :D

  5. Well, it works here. But then, the fines are much much heavier! One restaurant which allowed it's customers to smoke inside was fined 150.000 euros, and the customers themselves 3.000 euros.


thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
