Good design. Hope they would also offer a 'sky garden' type of development to go with it. The area obviously needs some touch of greenery- an oasis of calm in the midst of chaotic Monumento.

3 Metro LGUs gear up for All Saints' Day weekend
(The Philippine Star) Updated October 30, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Three local government units (LGUs) in Metro Manila announced the preparations they made for All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day on Nov. 1 and 2.

Makati City will close several streets starting 12 midnight on Oct. 31 to ease the flow of people at the Manila South Cemetery, Makati Public Cemetery and the Makati Catholic Cemetery. The streets are: Vito Cruz Extension, from Zapote street to South Avenue; Kalayaan Avenue, from Zapote to N. Garcia (formerly Reposo) street; South Avenue, from J.P. Rizal to Metropolitan Avenue; Pililla street, from J.P. Rizal to Kalayaan Avenue; JB Roxas, from J.P. Rizal to Kalayaan Avenue; Kakarong street, from J.P. Rizal to Metropolitan Avenue; Montojo and Yague streets, from Zapote to South Avenue; and Panama and Suez streets, from South Avenue to Zapote street.

City public safety director Hermenegildo San Miguel, however, said that to make way for tents and wooden stairs to be put up around the cemeteries, South Avenue, from J.P. Rizal Avenue to Metropolitan Avenue; Kalayaan Avenue from Zapote street to South Avenue; Vito Cruz Extension, from Zapote to South Avenue will be closed starting at 6 a.m. on Oct. 31.

San Miguel said N. Garcia street will be open to one way traffic from Jupiter street or Metropolitan Avenue to Kalayaan Avenue, and J.P. Rizal Avenue will be two-way from Makati Avenue to Pasong Tirad Street starting 12 midnight of Oct. 31.

“In case of congestion, westbound vehicles will be directed to turn right to Trabajo street and left turn to Hipodromo street toward AP Reyes Avenue,” San Miguel said.

In Parañaque City, officials said that from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, starting at the Lopez Avenue-DASA intersection, Sucat-bound vehicles must take the DASA inner lane while those going to the Manila Memorial Park must stay on the middle and outer lanes. Motorists not intending to go to the MMP may opt to take a short cut by turning right at Lopez Avenue, traversing El Grande and Aguirre, exiting at President Avenue (BF Mcdo) and rejoining mainstream traffic on the eastbound lane of DASA on the way to Sucat.

Motorists going to Baclaran must take the outer lane, starting at the DASA-President Avenue junction while those bound for the MMP must stay on the middle and inner lanes. Motorists who do not intend to stop by MMP may turn left at President Avenue-DASA intersection, negotiate Aguirre, El Grande, exit at Lopez Avenue and merge with the westbound DASA traffic on the way to Baclaran.

Additional alternate routes to and from MMP are: Teoville Gate (along President Avenue, BF Mcdo), which will be open on Nov. 1 from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. (entrance only) and 4:15 p.m. to 10 p.m. (exit only). It will also be open on Nov. 2 but for exiting vehicles only from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

At Caloocan City, Mayor Enrico Echiverri said vehicular traffic will be closed at the Caloocan-Malabon boundary along Tugatog and Letre Road, A. Mabini corner Gen. San Miguel streets in Sangandaan and A. Mabini corner A. Bato to Sangandaan to give way to visitors going to the Sangandaan Public Cemetery.

Motorists going to Eternal Gardens Memorial Park from Sta. Quiteria are advised to take Reparo Road en route to the cemetery’s main gate.

Motorists coming from Quirino Highway, Novaliches, A. Bonifacio and Balintawak are advised to take the Eternal Gardens’ Leland gate.

Motorists from EDSA must take Reparo Service Road in going to the cemetery’s main gate.

All vehicles leaving the Eternal Gardens should exit only at the Baesa gate along Baesa Road, which would be turned into a one-way road, going straight to Quirino Highway.

Those going to the La Loma Cemetery are informed that Cabatuan street corner C3-Road and Rizal Avenue corner C3-Road will be closed to vehicles.

The mayor said motorists from Dagat-Dagatan going to Monumento must turn left on Rizal Avenue while motorists from Monumento going to Manila should turn right on 4th Ave., left on F. Roxas St. (one-way) then to R. Papa and on to their destination.

SM group acquires prime property in Caloocan
By Doris Dumlao
Philippine Daily Inquirer
http://business.inquirer.net/money/t...ty-in-Caloocan


TYCOON HENRY SY’S SM GROUP has acquired a prime property in Caloocan City where an old Ever Emporium used to stand and use it as the new site of a P2-billion high-rise condominium development overlooking the Bonifacio monument.

In a recent interview with Inquirer, the tycoon’s eldest son, Henry Jr., who is vice chair and chief executive officer of SM Development Corp. (SMDC), confirmed that the group had bought the 5,000-sq.m. property, which SMDC will develop into a residential condominium but with some commercial component in the lower floors.

The property was bought from the family of Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office Chair Sergio Osmeña Valencia, who had leased it to budget shopping mall operator Jose Go for the past 25 years, Sy said.

The group has yet to finalize a master plan for the Monumento property. The acquisition, however, was in line with its thrust of accumulating a significant urban land bank that could be used into residential developments to serve the growing demand for affordable housing.

Measure seeks P5 to P10 reward for rat catchers
By Beverly T. Natividad
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 21:12:00 11/29/2009

Filed Under: Health, Medical research

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

MANILA, Philippines— More than a month after the Department of Health expressed alarm over what it called an “unprecedented” number of leptospirosis cases in Metro Manila, a Valenzuela City councilor has filed a draft ordinance proposing a monetary reward for residents who catch rats.

Authored by Councilor Alvin Feliciano, the measure—which was dubbed the “Catch-the-rat Ordinance”—will pay P5 to people who catch a rat which weighs less than half a kilo.

If the rodent weighs more, the mouse catcher will receive P10.

According to the draft ordinance, it doesn’t matter if the rat is dead or alive as long as it is caught in Valenzuela City.

Feliciano said that should his measure be approved, the city health department would be placed in charge of the project.

“The ordinance will not only lessen the possibility of residents acquiring leptospirosis, it will also give people a little income,” said the councilor who also heads the city’s Liga ng mga Barangay.

Leptospirosis is a rare but life-threatening bacterial infection contracted by swallowing or absorbing contaminated water through cuts in the skin. The infection is commonly transmitted in floodwaters tainted by the urine of rats and other animals.

Its symptoms include fever, rashes, headache, redness of the eyes, jaundice, muscle and joint pains, vomiting and fatigue.

After floodwaters spawned by Tropical Storm “Ondoy” submerged a huge portion of Metro Manila on Sept. 26, the number of leptospirosis cases went up. Between Oct. 1 to 26, the DOH reported 2,158 cases with 167 fatalities.

Si Bayani Fernando lang talaga ang pwede magsabi ng "meritocracy".

Hindi kayo nagtataka sa Caloocan? Hybrid system ang pinaiiral sa mga barangay nito... may ibang may pangalan ang barangay, yung iba naman walang pangalan... numbers lang. Dapat pangalanan na lang lahat at saka bawasan ang dami ng mga barangay. Remember, nasa Caloocan City ang pinakamalaking barangay sa buong Pilipinas, Barangay Bagong Silang 176 sa North.

Monumento Station expansion and LRT extension

I beg to disagree. Manila has more barangays since the numbers are up to 600. Though I don't know if the numbering start from number 1.

Anyway, below are shots of Monumento Area during my LRT-NEP inspection. Monumento station is currently undergoing capacity expansion that will surely provide great help to commuters in and near the area in weeks to come
