When you spend more than an hour of travel everyday of your life, two things can happen -- first, everything that you see along the way will probably look the same to you and you won't normally care anymore; second, you tend to notice little details and try to think of the differences between yesterday and today.
It could be both. Eversince I moved an hour away from the city 5 years ago, every single day of my work life is spent on long travel time. It would be a waste to not do something during that period of time, especially when I don't have a car. I take the jeepney, sometimes bus, and very rarely take a cab anymore.
I see many kids doing this, which totally makes me wonder where their parents are. And then I think of Reiko. I am thankful that he has a home to live in and food to eat. This photo actually breaks my heart.
This kid is physically able but he's using a saklay or crutch as his prop. I don't know which one is sadder - that he is begging for alms instead of going to school and playing with his friends or that he is learning or trying to fool people to have money. But then again, it must be his way to survive.
Here he was picking up coins that were thrown by passengers.
It's in the name. Who wouldn't want to shop at Wonderful Life?
Just snapped this photo from the second floor of our office building where I saw these 3 girls busy looking at their phones.
