Rizal Theater in Makati.

It was one of the classier cinemas in the late 60s, 70s and 80s. It later closed down in the late 80s due to fierce competition. People started going to malls to see a movie instead. In the late 90s it was torn down. The site where Rizal Theater used to be is now 6750 Ayala.

Vividly illustrating the condition of burned-out, battle-scarred Manila, as U.S. engineers and thousands of Filipinos begin the huge task of reconstruction, is this aerial view looking southwest across the Pasig River toward hulks of sunken ships in the harbor. Tall building, left foreground, is gutted, Eastern Hotel, center, across river, is burned out, general post office, extreme left, across river is Metropolitan Opera House in ruins. Battered wall of Intramuros, Walled City, and destroyed buildings inside, occupies rectangular area beyond post office. Left is demolished Santa Cross Bridge, repaired by Army engineers. The streets have already been cleared of rubble.

From a negative made on the spot the day of the “brave feat of arms,” when a great body of Moros, men, women and children, were killed by the army under Gen. Wood; “a logical incident in the sequence of events which will include the whole history of the Philippine posessions.”

This is in Makati, That’s the old IBM building and beside it was the old RCPI bldg. This picture was taken in the area where Manila Penn now stands. I’m sure, my dad use to work for IBM.)

By RMN: The lovely building on the far right is the Dona Narcisa de Leon (yes, Dona Sisang of LVN) Building designed by Gabriel Formoso that has long since been torn-down in favor of the Equitable-PCI Bank Tower.

Power-Mad: That would be from left, IBM ; RCPI and the Dona Narcisa de Leon Building. Doinks didn’t specify if IBM and RCPI were just tenants and if these are the actual names of the buildings themselves.

Pussy Cat Found

June 5, 2009

First time to pickup a cat on the streets. and its a black pussy cat.

I usually dont pickup cats or kittens on the street but this one is unique.

Why I picked it up?. When I got near to it. The Kitten was friendly and I noticed the hair it isnt the usualy hair of a normal stray cat.  I believe it was a Persian Cat. cause of its hair. thick hair, big bones. beautiful face but color black.

No one seems to care and no one was around so I got it. on a rainy day.

Went to a Vet that was expert to cats. Confirmed that it was a Persian Cat and around 2-3months old.

Lucky me.🙂

But I cant take care of this forever. Anyone wants to adopt it?🙂

copy paste this link to see the cat in action
