The Luneta Hotel: "Enduring Time and Tide"

The Luneta Hotel was built in 1918 and it is one of my favorite old buildings in Manila. Throughout the years, I have discovered that private companies and government officials carelessly allowed the destruction of Manila’s many old monuments and buildings.  I miss the days when I still saw some old Art Deco buildings along the streets of Manila.  Although I spend most of my days in Quezon City now, I still long for the Manila of my youth. Last August 26, aside from venting my anger along with the multitudes in Rizal Park, I made a point to visit an old friend.  Thankfully, she has gotten better with age and I heard she is being restored.  Here are some of my pictures in colored and in black and white.

(Hinihikayat ng “Teapot” (Tsarera) ang mga mambabasa na tumutok lamang sa mga isyung pinag-uusapan sa pagkomento o pagpuna. Hindi namin pinapayagan ang napakaruming wika at personal na pag-atake sa sinumang indibidwal. Maari lamang punahin ang aksiyon at paniniwala ng isang publikong indibidwal. Istrikto naming sinasala ang mga taong nagkokomento at tanging ang mga komento mula sa mambabasa na ginagamit ang buong pangalan ang aming ipapaskil. Kaakibat din ng kalayaan sa pananalita ang responsibilidad. Gusto naming alisin ang mga luko-luko mula sa kritikal at malayang mag-isip. Maraming salamat po.)
