A sweet street discovery – honey lemon on stick!

I was waiting for the dismissal of classes of my daughter at ETCS III this morning and happen to notice an area where students get their snacks at the sidewalks of the school…

and here it goes – students started to swarm over this vendor…

and the coins started to pour in for this sweet treat…

more and more students came to buy the honey lemon on the stick – P1 peso fun and sugar shock…

the sweet and gooey honey lemon is indeed a sure hit for kids…

and the students keeps on coming for this sweet street treat…Have a sweet day everyone!

A Sunday afternoon at the Plaza

10 Images that gives you a glimpse of life at the Bacolod Public Plaza…

Faded Glory – one of the fountain areas at the Plaza which used to be the attraction of the place since then.

I could still recall having a photo at this spot when I was a kid.

A CONFLICTING SIGN – While it is said by the first sign that people should avoid washing their feet and and plates at the drinking fountain – the attached sign says otherwise.

Photography and the technological advances of the times also limit the chances of Plaza Photographers to earn a living at the Plaza nowadays.

Erning Sajo has been photographing people at the Plaza since the 80’s – during the advent of the Digital Era his income turned low due to the increase of digital camera ownership – but he is still hopeful that his client would pass by the Plaza and have their photos taken by him.

Under the shade of this old tree are checker players that spend their time at the park playing.

The light that passes through the leaves of the tree illuminates the playing board for the players.

And who would have thought that there is a one month old baby named Joemarie at this makeshift crib.

Lucky Joemarie lives with his mother at the Plaza by the day and sleeps in front of Amar Emporium at night time.
