A day in Manila Zoo

When you are in Manila, and have a day off, why not spend it in Manila Zoo?
There are lots of animals to see and it is always interesting to see how the animals behave and look like. Nothing is like seeing a majestic animal with your own eyes – seeing a movie or documentary even it is from National Geographic just does not make the trick or give the same impression.

Besides the facination of the animals, one cannot help but wonder, how the tiger or lions can manage to live in such small confinements, when their natural habitat is many squares of kilomiters, where they can wander around and live in the free, getting proper exercise by running far and fast fast to hunt for food.
Going to the zoo also requires that you can manage the smell – especially on a sunny day. If you have children to bring with you, it may be one of the highlights of their life always to remember and cheerish.

Recycled plastic bottles used for life saving efforts in Manila

I think that it is great that efforts are put into recycling all the plastic bottles that float around in Manila. Plastic bottles are found every where. The next step is to pay people for submitting their bottles in stores. This could also be a great way to help the indigent to earn some money. This will certainly help to clean up the city of Manila, the Philippines.
