Your photo clearly says it is. Building maintenance is another thing though.

I believe this one is in Dela Rosa Street in Makati... and not in Manila. Mind-boggling but I would still consider this as a good shot. But it would be better if it was tagged appropriately, since you put it in a map. Let's make Google Earth a nice tourist tool.

Mr. Santiago couldn't have made a smarter statement.

We almost get to see the horizontally laid ones at Clark Air Base past SM daily.

Such ordered serenity.

About the building, the architects or engineers should put solar panels on dem dar "tombstones" for eternal light.

My regards

I think of it as expenditure :) who needs tombstones for buildings? haha! Much cement could have been saved by not having tombstones in places like that haha! but as they say, art has no price. but i think otherwise.

Nice picture. The tombstones provides shade to the windows as shadows on the windows can be seen. Cemetery art and functionality in one. Makes a lot of sense. LOL
