What to do with uprooted trees

People affected by typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) may find something good from uprooted tree trunks. Besides using the broken tree trunks to build new houses, they may also use them to create toys for the little ones. If you have time to do these things in your spare time, you can create and carve whatever inspiration you have in mind. Or if you already have access to the internet (for areas where power has been restored) you can find wood cutouts designs on the internet. Kids love toys whatever size and shapes. You can sell the finished products for additional source of income.

Palo Metropolitan Cathedral after Typhoon Yolanda

This is what’s left of the cathedral edifice a few hours after super typhoon Yolanda hit the island of Leyte. Only the concrete walls remain standing. Experts alone can declare if the edifice is fit for reconstruction or a new church should be built  on the same site.

See the picture of the church five months ago. Both pictures were taken by my former officemate Ver Noveno.

Tourist spot in Maasim

I’ve never been to this beautiful place. In fact, I don’t even own these photos. My niece (Leenie) who is from General Santos City took these pictures in one of her travels with family members.

Just got curious that “tourist spots in maasim” is one of the top keywords that send traffic to travelandmusings.com.

This is one of the tourist spots in Maasim. The IML Ecopark. This is located in Lumasal Village, Sarangani Province. I’m reposting the pictures.
