Like fast moving clips from a projector, images of a vibrant city are captured in seconds: school children crossing a street; a mall energizing a fast growing metropolis; a lady smoking in a non-smoking city; vehicles moving towards Chinatown (Sta. Ana); colorful flags billowing along Bolton Bridge; a gigantic green-colored billboard dwarfing shanties down below; a deserted spare-parts shop; a busy street populated by multicabs; and a university standing proud before an afternoon sun.
SM Mall has energized the city and has spawned brisk development in a once-sleepy district.
Brave lady smokes in Duterte's no-smoking land.
Gigantic billboards lend support to an embattled lady mayor.
