3SA, Manila Trip (3-9 Nov)
St. Andrew's Secondary
This is Brookside village which houses former slum dwellers living at and around the mountain of rubbish.
I do not recall seeing the water tank a few years back so that must be a new addition.
One of our tasks assigned at Brookside is to model along this street aptly named Singapore Street - I'm kidding about the modelling bit of course!
The street is named that because groups of Singaporeans like us have dropped by bearing gifts and labour.
Painting the facade of some houses was one such assignment.
As you will probably realised, it was the kids who were performing the hard labour while we adults stood around with magic fingers and glib tongues to motivate the former. :P
See how happy they are doing what they are doing? Three cheers to the adults! (and the kids of course!)
