old house 2

Found this old house and i feel in love with it. it's worn down look adds beauty to its structure and i love the "MLI-JAI'S STORE" signage in front, though the sari sari store is close and i think has been closed for quite some time now it reminds me on those days when almost all the houses have these mini store in front of their house for the housewives to run as an additional income for their family.  But now most family either have tone of their parent working abroad, sometimes both parents are abroad to support the family leaving their young ones at home.

Did you also noticed how low the original fence is? It goes with other houses in our neighborhood as well, when the owner have to put yero (metal sheet) to hide the inside from passerby and also made higher for security reasons. 

How times had changed, when people used to live simply...

It does look like you captured the house on a not so good day. It could use a little makeup and then it would look a lot better on the outside.
