Change The Way You See Happiness

Change The Way You See
Most of the parents taught their children to study well to get a brighter future, agree? To make them happy, I studied well resulting to excellent grades. The time I accepted my diploma and medals, I witnessed how my parents became emotional on stage. May Mom was smiling but there are tears on her eyes. I don’t have children yet but I know that for parent’s perspective, seeing their children on a graduation is such a rewarding moment that gives them real happiness.

Photobomer sa Likod ng Quezon City Circle

Quezon City Circle
Habang naglalakad sa Quezon City Circle kahapon, sa unang pagkakataon nakita ko ang napakagandang arkitektura ng bantayog sa parkeng ito, ngunit nalungkot ako sa aking nakita. Kung natatandaan natin, naging isang malaking issue ang pag develop ng isang higanteng gusali na tinawag pang dakilang photobomber sa likod ng bantayog ni Rizal sa Luneta Park. Ang larawan sa itaas ang magpapatunay na hindi lang pala ang Luneta Park ang may ganitong suliranin gayudin ang promenenteng bantayog ng Siyudad ng Quezon.
