Real Living (Philippines) - - News -

Happy Hol­i­days from the Real liv­ing team! (From l-r): as­sis­tant style edi­tor Tala Sing­son, web man­ag­ing edi­tor Cielo Calzado, edi­to­rial as­sis­tant Trisia To­lentino, cre­ative di­rec­tor nat Clave, print man­ag­ing edi­tor Sun­shine Funa, web as­so­ciate fea­tures edi­tor Kather­ine lopez, edi­tor in chief Rachelle Me­d­ina, as­so­ciate pub­lisher Tom Cas­tañeda, web staffwriter gab Bu­ganan, deputy as­so­ciate edi­tor Dagny Madamba Just be­cause a “con­demned” sign hangs on a door, that doesn’t mean that the whole build­ing is hope­less. Take the for­merly aban­doned Met­ro­pol­i­tan The­ater, for in­stance. Once we stepped in­side its empty but ma­jes­tic lobby, we could al­most feel its in­nate en­ergy, its creak­ing doors and echo­ing mar­ble floors al­most bristling with life. And through the dili­gence of or­ga­ni­za­tions that care, it will have its long-awaited re­birth soon.

This is clear proof that things (and peo­ple!) de­serve a sec­ond chance. And af­ter a tu­mul­tuous year, there will be­gin an­other year, and with it, a con­scious­ness about re­build­ing and pro­tect­ing those around us. And no signs are needed, please.
