Couldn't resist taking a photo of this girl looking so forlorn and forgotten. This statue is just one of the many statues "guarding" the dead inside the La Loma Catholic Cemetery (Campo Santo de La Loma). You can see lots of old statues and old tombs here since the cemetery was opened in1884.

This is the hottest summer ever... wouldn't be surprised why this snake seems so docile and contented while his caretaker bathe him. Actually I really think the snake needed the bath because he's part of a booth inside Manila Zoo where you can have your picture taken together with a snake. Would you mind being hugged by a snake? Well, lots of people seemed to enjoy having their picture taken with the snake, kudos to them for being brave!

One of the happiest places i know in Manila - Luneta's childrens playground!
Aside from the usual slides and swings you see in a typical playground, the place also include giant statues of dinosaurs, odd shaped playhouses like this squash in the picture. Truly a treat for kids and young at heart.

i was inspired by paris daily photo which i've been visiting everyday for two months now... i've thought of sharing my beautiful manila as well. manila is not as old and grandeur as paris but it is very colorful and full of life which is why i heart manila.
my first photo for you is this happy kids relaxing at Luneta Park, the building you can see in the horizon is the famous Manila Hotel
