Nakaligo ka na ba sa dagat ng basura?Nag-Pasko ka na ba sa gitna ng kalsada?Yan ang tanong namin,Tunay ka bang isa sa amin?
Baywalk,Roxas Blvd--Remember the lyrics of Sen. Manny Villar's 2010 Presidential Election campaign jingle? The song that all of us suffered LSS (Last Song Syndrome) from and kept playing over and over our heads long after the campaign season was finished due to the number of times it was played on radio and television?
I was reminded of the song when I went to Roxas Blvd last Easter Sunday.
The Philippines has plenty of beaches surrounded by pristine crystal clear sea waters and it made me wonder why some people chose to swim or bath on polluted sea waters (dagat ng basura?) instead of having gone to beaches or resorts that have clean natural environments last Easter Holiday.
The kids on this photo seem to be having such a grand time as they swim and frolic on the sea waters of the Manila Bay. The joy on these kids faces is probably no different from the joy on other kid's faces somewhere in Coron or Boracay.
The scene over at the one of the finest natural harbors in the world last Easter Sunday is probably the same scene one would find on most beaches or resorts here in the Philippines during summer. Families from allover Manila flocked to Roxas Blvd's bay area to swim or bathed on its polluted sea waters despite warnings from the local government.
