Sunday, August 2. I went to Ayala to buy pasalubong for my parents and sisters in Zamboanga City. I passed by the Philippine Stock Exchange plaza in Makati City along Ayala Avenue – a day after the death of former President Corazon C. Aquino. The flag at the plaza was in half-mast, and at the background of the flag pole is a yellow banner dedicated to the late president:
While walking along Ayala Avenue going to go to Greenbelt, The Landmark and Glorieta, I noticed that the street was filled with yellow ribbons tied to metal railings along the avenue. This was in remembrance of the late President.
A day after, there were a massive gathering along Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas intersection for the late president. Her remains was transfered from La Salle Greenhills to the Manila Cathedral near the Palacio de Gobernador in Intramuros.
The fate of the dead is already in the hands of the God.
