Okay…

See, I like this blog a lot but I am certain that I will never have the time to commit to it fully. I can abandon it for another seven years – or I can update it when I happen to have some time and I am in the mood for blogging about Metro Manila. I think a post in a year, or two, looks better than none at all.

So I’m giving this kid another chance and this time I won’t pressure myself to post stuff daily.

For my first post in ages, I’m posting a photo of my current turf – Diliman district in Quezon City. I never would’ve thought that I will be working in Quezon City but opinions, and many other things, change in seven years. I have been based in Quezon City for almost two years now, I’ve been living here for about a year (though I will be relocating soon, and the move, as well as the changes that have happened, deserves a different blog entry).

If you look at the photo above, you’ll see metal rings allotted for bike parking.  Metro Manila is making some progress in terms of promoting bike culture. Yay! What didn’t change? The quality of our Internet connections! It is still dismal, in spite of the minor improvements implemented here and there. But I believe it’s okay to post bigger pictures now. So from now on, I’ll be posting photos that are a bit larger than the ones I’ve posted ages ago. Edit – ugh, the current theme I use crops the right side of the photo!

This blog needs a “major overhaul” (Tan Cardoso, 2014). I’ll think about what else needs renovation in this little space occupying the world wide web (we don’t call it that anymore, do we?).
