Blessings & Prosperity Food Court Opens on Ayala Corner Rufino Streets

A new food court opens on Ayala Avenue and Rufino Street, Makati City. Called Blessings and Prosperity Food Court, it houses stalls that offer street food such as fish balls or kwek-kwek (quail eggs covered with flour and deep fried), or even siomai.

It’s a  welcome treat for all workers in the area. If you like eating street food in an air-conditioned restaurant, then this food court is for you. Check it out!

Cleaning Up Ayala Avenue

I was away for a week’s vacation  and was pleasantly surprised when I went back to work that Monday morning and saw these trash bins along Ayala Avenue.

What’s even more interesting is that the trash bins are categorized according to the kind of waste: non-biodegradable and biodegradable. The trash bins come in pair and are strategically placed, about every 10 meters away from the others.

I really hope people, especially those people smoking outside PBCOM building, would use these trash bins, and make Ayala Avenue much cleaner than it already is.

Kudos to those who have thought of this!

Let’s love this Earth. It’s all we got! 😀

Ayala Avenue Dresses Up for Christmas

The Christmas decors along Ayala Avenue were put up last week, and today I decided to take photos of it. Again, I forgot my digicam, so I took the photos using my Nokia E63.

1st photo: I was walking toward PBCom Tower, Ayala Avenue cor. Rufino Street.

2nd photo: I was on the corner of Ayala Avenue and Rufino Street.

I’m excited about Christmas already! :)

Ayala Avenue Filled Up for Tita Cory

Yesterday, the remains of former President Corazon C. Aguino were transferred to Manila Cathedral from La Salle Greenhills.

The route of the motorcade was from Ortigas Avenue to EDSA to Ayala Avenue, then to Buendia, to Manila.

As the parade drew near Ayala Avenue, office workers in Makati trooped to Ayala to pay their last respects.

I just noticed that my shots were not able to capture the yellow confetti. Thanks Paolo, my 6-footer officemate, for taking these shots. :)

What’s New on Ayala Avenue?

A giant electronic ticker above Starbucks Insular. That’s on Ayala Avenue corner Paseo de Roxas.

I first noticed it yesterday when the shuttle I was on stopped right at the intersection. I was amused especially that it flashed only good news and inspiring quotes. These messages were mixed with ads promoting the Philippines.

This area is right at the center of Makati Central Business District. I hope it will be used wisely like a tourism campaign.
