Estero de Paco Walking Tour

Leave a comment

Taking you on a walking tour of the  greening of Estero de Paco with no other than Ms. Gina Lopez.  Since we started late morning, it was quite hot but the timing was good for photo-taking.  So sit back and view the improved estero surroundings.   The stench was greatly reduced, the walkways were clean and nice, the view was inspiring, crime was reduced, livelihood  increased, health problems reduced, flooding and corresponding expenses were reduced. . . most of all a place of filth was transformed into a useful place with a park-like ambience. Thanks to the Pasig River warriors who protect and maintain its cleanliness and to the inspiration and devotion of  top  Filipino environmentist, Gina Lopez.

Still more esteros to clean . . . so help the Pasig River Clean Up and join the Run for Pasig event on September 30 at Quezon City Memorial Circle. For updates on this advocacy run, visit, like  or follow @run4pasigriver on Twitter.

Time to listen to Mother Earth!

We are blessed with so much but we don’t take good care or make good use of these gifts. I’m talking about nature and the earth we live in.  If only we all are aware of its massive potential and its solution to most of our problems, we would be a contented and less stressed people.  But no, we have to go about life the hard way.

If we just listen to mother earth, we would understand that she is giving us the answer to most of our problems: health, hunger, poverty, calamities, and stress.  Listen, be quiet . . . your heart and mind will hear her.  It just makes perfect sense in the end.
