A Little Patch of Green in Makati

Washington Sycip Park
























"In the nearly six decaded that I have been advisor to companies operating in both the developed and developing countries, I can say with confidence that westernstyle democracy may not be a workable proposition in the absence of a developed westernstyle economy! For most of us who have lived all our lives in a developing economy, it is easy to understand why. But for those who have spent their entire lives in a developed nation, it is difficult to understand why not."

Hi. nice photos. And nice "quote' (was that a quote?). Anyway, sometimes, i get to appreciate western commercialism (the essence of democracy??? lol!) when my family eats italian dishes (yay!) more-than-we-can at fastfoods for about $25, and munch on Goya dark chocolate for a quarter $. And experience the world for $20 (via Smartbro).
But more than a decade ago, a friend and I thought the US' only legacy to the world is the Levi's 501 jeans... perspectives change. maybe, it's wisdom, or the dusk...
well, just sharing.

hey Jef! yes my email is correct....I just have too many! chatterchatter@sympatico.ca is my family email and I check it daily. donw@williamsglobal.com is my office and I'm "nailed up" between 9 to 5 mon-fri.
patienceandselfcontrol@hotmail.com is my hotmail account. So there you have it. I trust all is well. I understand you've been busy. Thanks for dropping by my blog.
