Yeah even until now, some evacuees are still irresponsibly throwing their trash around! when are people ever going to learn???

My NY trip was a blast, of course! I hate that I keep getting reminded of NY everyday. I miss it SOOO much. And I keep wondering when I'll ever get to go back. *sigh*

It is very unfortunate for our Filipino brothers to be hit by typhoon Ondoy. I have seen the massive flooding and the flood victims on TV and it is really horrible.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
