Monday morning...or afternoon.

It's a slow day today at work with not much to do so here I am writing this. Sifting through my photobucket I realized I had some pictures from photowalks I attended with my wife. Between the two of us, she is the photographer although I used to do this many years ago.

I must have been living in cave for a couple of years. When we visited the Quezon City Memorial circle, I was surprised to see they now have a small amusement park. The last time I was there, more traditional forms of recreation like biking jogging, and other sports were the most common things to do. They did have a skate park but I'm not sure it really hit the mark.

Funny how there is something like this in a memorial. I mean, it's cool and fun but isn't already someone who could be walking around when you least expect it? And no, I'm not referring to folks who like to take midnight strolls.

Like any amusement park, this one has a small roller coaster ride. My wife who once told me she would never ride one, literally ran to the ticket booth to get us seats. It wasn't a long ride but the loops were sufficient enough to make you scream if you've never been in one. I thought of bringing my camera during the ride but was vetoed on the grounds that it might go flying out of my hands and hurt someone on the ground.

I'm not sure what this ride is supposed to be and I lost my shot of the name. Looks fun though and not as twisty as a roller coaster.

I wonder if they had to pay for any trademark or copyrights to use the Alien in one of the many decorations in the park.


But for those who come to the memorial for a nice afternoon, the memorial itself is still the landmark. It certainly looks better now since I last saw it.

One may say that a memorial is there to let us remember important people and events that influenced change in our country. I agree and we should definitely preserved it as it was meant to be. However, I can't help but wonder how Mr. Quezon himself feels about seeing a place that is bustling with activity every weekend. I think he would enjoy that too.
