APEC WORK-WEEK 2015

It’s APEC week and we have work.

Thank God for all the benefits of this event.

However, some people can’t understand the side effects.

Metro Manila closed a lot of roads where the APEC leaders are. Yes, for security reason. But also, the domino effect of a heavy traffic someplace else, especially in the south is worth considering. The Caviteños suffered a lot.

Well, a lot of people suffered. But the people living in the direction of Cavite got hit so bad.

I am luckily situated in the heart of the City of Manila. Workplace is Walking, Biking, Running Distance only.

so easy to run to work!

COULD have been this hard if I was a marathon distance away. :)

But it’s a work-week for me. I have to report to work. I must. No choice. Not that I don’t want too – but this is something I am really supposed to be doing while the rest of the majority is enjoying the holidays. We work. We serve.

How can you report to work when the traffic is at a stand-still and you can’t get a ride?

How will you even go home even when you are able to go to work?

Would you choose to walk?

Regardless of the distance?

I noticed that the police concentration and vehicle traffic is where the APEC leaders are. However, other areas require attention too.

Manila’s Baywalk has never been this clean.

Manila’s Baywalk has never been out of peddlers – until now.

Manila’s Baywalk has never been out of runners in the afternoon – until now.

🙂

I dont know.

Let’s just pray for the good benefit to come after the event.

Let’s just pray that the SMALL and MEdium Enterprises will benefit too.

Let’s just pray that the big and prosperous nations will share their technologies with us.

Let God reign, for He is King.
