The First Ride on the Slide

Since the time I arrived from a three-week vacation and a side trip getaway in one of The New Seven Wonders of Nature and in The Last Frontier of the Philippines, we haven’t been getting any trips so far. So last month (15 May) we went to a family gathering hosted by our neighbor which was held in a local children’s park. The kids are excited and so does our son that he is even risking his own safety (that if he knows what safety is) just to climb and test the slides. He would even want to climb on the wrong side of the platform (picture below).


At first, at the top left picture, he seems to be scared going down the slide for the first time in his life and the mother looks even more concerned and was so unwilling to let him go. The picture on the right tells otherwise of being scared and looks more likely that he is enjoying it. While the pictures below appears to be attesting that he indeed, enjoy his best ever ride so far.


More so that he is even preparing for his next slide and at one point, he even wanted to climb immediately back to the top in the wrong way again.


Interior Furnishing Structural Flaw?

I have captured a lot of things in my lens during my visit in Cebu City last March though it was a gloomy afternoon when I arrived yet it is nice to be back in Cebu again. What I have seen mostly is the completion of skyscrapers and some are having their finishing touches. I would say that there are no economic crises in Cebu considering the influx of skyscrapers around the city and its neighboring cities. It’s been sprouting here and there from the last 6 years or so and there’s no stopping yet. I will be featuring some of them in my next post.

The structure above is one of the newly completed edifice that houses mostly dining and resto establishments. And at one point while we were dining at one of the restaurants there, I saw a piece of decor inside the restaurant that instantly became an eye sore to me. What you can see below is one of the interior furnishings which I think has structural flaw. Perhaps the one who plan it don’t have the concept of aesthetics (sorry for my use of word and being blatant) or probably was in hurry to make things done.

The concept and the design of the furnishing are good and even elegant at some angle but only if the electrical cord is hidden and not hanging in front of it. It just destroys its image.
