It rained the whole day of Monday here in Davao City, but I dared the rain to go to the nearest ATM. I saw cars lining at the fa├žade of the back, I thought there was an accident of something as it is unusual for that area to have a traffic jam, but when I get down from my car holding my newly bought Sesame Street umbrella and ask the guard what happened, - maam, that’s the long queue of people in their cars afraid to get. That’s when I turned back and tailed the last car on the queue.

There’s no quiet a pleasant view around Metrobank here in Agdao, except for the flyover, some garbage and tricycle passing by making a splash.

Wooah! This guy was attempting to kiss the girl, but she keeps dodging and often misses the spot.
