The Oblation At Manila Bay

A boy, taking the form of the "Oblation," prepares to take a dive at the Manila Bay.

These children unmindful of the dirty seas take a day off to relax and swim at Manila Bay.

Few more days to go, "Sayonara February! Here comes the summer sun."

As Early as January, people from Manila and other parts of the country already placed their hotel reservations at the favorite summer destination, Boracay and Puerto Galera.

As early as now, I can feel the heat of the approaching summer season. I am excited now to dip my body into the deep blue sea.

But these children can no longer wait. Worn their best form and dip into the deep blue....errr, black sea of Manila Bay.

Oh! There's a precautionary sign! Mmm. I wonder these children (probabably out-of-school-youth) could understand what is stated. Filipino sign please, for the non-english speaking people.
