LRT REDUX

As promised, here's Part Two of my photo shoots of my trip from Antipolo back to Manila. Since I'd be on my way to Manila to meet up with a friend, Chef Carlo Cruz of UP Diliman, I had to connect from LRT 2 to the MRT 3 via a long, long walk from Gatewall Mall to Farmer's Plaza.

The famous dome, then the largest in the world when it was completed in 1959. It held that title until 1963 but remains to be the largest covered indoor facility in Southeast ASia; taken from the Cubao Station of the MRT 3

The environs of North EDSA Station. Amzingly clean and orderly but hey! It's a Sunday!

north avenue during the weekday is quite orderly din. the walk from the MRT station to SM north is not that long and scary anymore.

very true. Bayani really should be supported rather than assailed. Sure he has his faults, but i suppose he will need more of our support and suggestions.

super takot lang talaga pinoy when somebody's taking charge and enforcing change and discipline :-/
