Been focused on the local news the last three days. There are so many conflicting reports about the supposedly “fake” and “artificial” shortage of water here in Metro Manila. The Manila Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) has done some presscons and they are telling the people that it is because of the El Nino phenomenon. Though a former employee of  Manila Water said that the agency closed the bypass from the Angat Dam going to La Mesa Dam so Manila Water which supplies our needs can’t get enough of it. This was denied by one of the directors of MWSS, they are the government agency tasked to see that water supply in Metro Manila is enough for everyone.

Come to think of it, and it is puzzling. Angat Dam has enough water to last until the rainy season sets in. And all the dams here in Luzon have enough water except La Mesa Dam where the concessionaire Manila Water gets its supply. The government wants to push through with Kaliwa Dam which will be funded by China at exorbitant interest rates. The people are calling for transparency in dam and other China funded projects. I must say, the president loves China and is beholden to it at the expense of the Filipino people. Nakakasawa na. What has become of us that in three years, the drug problems have become even grievous and such other concerns are not being addressed properly? Drugs are cheaper than water? When one is focused on the mindset of “kill, kill, kill”, this is the result. He has even threatened the priests and the Catholic Church anew by telling people in his speech that priests deserve to die.

I took pictures of the garden blooms early this morning. summer is almost here and my annual and perennial plants are blooming.  The Zinnias I planted from seeds a few months ago are a bloom.
