Baywalk

I took this picture of Manila Baywalk on June 2008

In an archipelago nation like ours where most provincial capitals are not landlocked, the existence of “baywalk“ is common in towns and cities in modern day Philippines. Baywalk functions as park for public use. Perhaps the term “baywalk” was adopted throughout the country because of the Roxas Boulevard Baywalk in Manila, the most notable of them all.

Lumpini Park

Coming out from the Silom metro subway station, you’ll see this statue by the entrance gate of Lumpini Park

It was inevitable that I found myself in a metropolis on a Sunday. But then, there was the Lumpini Park where lovers eat side-by-side on a bench by the lagoon, turtles lifting their heads in the water, kids throwing round multicolored breakfast-like cereals intended for fish feeding in the lagoon, photographer capturing paddleboat shots, group aerobic exercise near the park entrance, runners and walkers doing their rounds in a very much runnable park, expats, locals, and tourists, squatting on a rented mat while enjoying the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra concert– including myself.

Paddleboats much like those in Baguio’s Burnham Park

With beautiful music, greenery, and contemplative atmosphere, that Sunday afternoon in Bangkok turned out lovely ultimately.

See those runners?
