We all have a small place to live in. How do you find it? If we take a good look around us, we will see what a big difference there is compared to some 10 years ago. Has it improved or has pollution overtaken it, too, just like so many other parts in our country?

with the overgrowing population, i say that many reserved areas for trees had been turned into subdivisions. we all know that the more houses built is just like knowing how fast the population is increasing... the more people, the more waste there is. just sad to see how the world had turned out to be now. used to be a very healthy place to live in. now, it's so polluted.

A tinge of sadness in our words for the environment can be easily felt, for us lovers of it. But, for those who just couldn't care less, they are even irritated if they hear words of concern from others. I don't know why people never ever learn. It seems to me like they'd rather wait and see rather than help at all.

or maybe these people just want to play it safe. atleast not do anything at all and just wait for others to do it for them. it's sad though but it's true.

too much changes, huh? actually, we are happy to know that our country is atleast moving forward and trying to keep up with what's new when it comes to technology and all other matters. just sad that we forget how beautiful our environment is before.

I have a brother who resides in your area. He said that there are some areas, though quite small, which are being developed into some sort of small forests. This is a move to, most probably, house the tarsier and some insects and for tourists' purposes, too.

Oh how I loved my holiday cottage in the countryside. It was a fantastic escape from the crowded, over-polluted noisy city I live in. Though I grew up in a metro-city, I was never a 'city-person', I was in love with the countryside I used to visit during my holidays. The lovely walk along the woods, the meadows, the cows, the mountains, the sparkling springs, the smell of wet soil on early mornings, riding on my horses, that was bliss! The city I remember had a few 'greens' when I was a kid, as I grew up I saw it being turn into a concrete jungle, I hate goin outside for walks even. :(
