Rizal Park Goes Green

Have you seen what a “green” public restroom is like? No, I’m not talking about the colour, but how sustainable and environmental friendly a restroom can be. The above photo is an example. It may look like a typical restroom, but behind the mirrors you could see the white tanks which is part of the “Innovative Rainwater Harvesting System” invented by Adamson University Engineering Dean Antonio F Mateo. The multiple tanks harvest rainwater and are purified for use. If you are curious to try this, head over to Manila and witness the iconic Rizal Park Go Green.

Dispatch: NAIA Old Domestic Fiery Sunset Sky

NAIA Domestic
NAIA Old Domestic Airport Sunset

We landed back in Manila to be greeted with this amazing sunset skies at the Old NAIA Domestic Airport. I can’t help but  reach for the nearest point and shoot I had at that time. It’s hard not to miss this one even if the airport traffic control is calling our attention to clear the tarmac for the approaching plane ready to tax. It was a great weekend at Puerto Princessa Palawan but it’s time for a day’s rest for a road trip this time.

I can still remember it was back in 1988 when I was a kid when I witnessed a partial eclipse here in Manila. I remember my parents telling me not to look directly in the sun. I had to rely on multiple strips of film negatives or looking on the surface reflection on the water. Fast forward to July 22 2009, the world have experienced one of the longest solar eclipse. The Total solar eclipse was see in India and China. But here in the Philippines we get to see a Partial Solar Eclipse.
