People in the urban coastal barangays of the City of Mati evacuated to higher grounds as a result of the tsunami alert issued as a result of the 8.8 Magnitude earthquake that rocked Chile.
Thankfully, no tsunami was reported. Everyone went home relived.

These are scenes from the first ever Dog Parade held in my town. The event was held to promote responsibility pet ownership and rabies awareness.
Admittedly, I'm not a dog lover. This may have stemmed out from my years of being chased my neighbor's dogs. I recall a lot of fence-climbing, dodging and sprinting to avoid a dog's bite. But lately disdain for this creature has mellowed. I can now go near a very small dog like the Shih-Tzu. Medium-sized to extremely large dogs are still a no-no for me. Sad to say, I can't control my natural instincts to run or hide from them.
The reason for my softened stance on dogs in because of "Bimbo", he's a Shih-Tzu that I came across when I stayed in Manila almost two years ago. He was Trin's pet. This wonderful creature was the first dog that was friendly to me. I can recall him licking my feet to my horror, afraid that he might bite me. Thankfully he didn't. In my two days at Trin's house, Bimbo was a constant fixture around the house. Seeking anyone's attention just to get a belly rub. I too joined in massaging his belly or his stomach. He loved those belly rubs. Oranges were also his favorite dessert. Also, he was the first dog that I encountered that has a birth certificate. I miss Bimbo.
