Where there’s smoke…
I was walking home on Saturday when I saw this huge smoke in the Don Antonio area. It looked like a house was burning in one of the adjoining subdivisions. As I entered my subdivision, and I saw that the smoke, which I initially thought was on the other side of the avenue owing to the typical weird layout of Manila streets but was actually on the same side as my subdivision, I thought, “Damn, that fire’s closer than I thought.”
When I was a block from my house I started to get anxious and for a moment I thought, “Shit, that may actually be my house!”
Good thing it wasn’t.
This is the second fire within a kilometer of my house in two months. Yikes!
