For the love of Bricks

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation 
with the bricks others have thrown at him
-David Brinkley

This photo was taken during my friend's birthday celebration in Intramuros. She wanted to have a unique birthday so we came up with the idea of a road trip to Manila and eat somewhere we've never been before. We invested too much energy, had a good laugh and made fun with everything. It was an LOL day for us. And what made this trip extra special was the opportunity to visit the historical places of Manila including Intramuros. 

Imagine the bricks on the picture were said to have been built using egg white to make them stick together and until today, the infrastructures were standing still. Stronger than before, the manifestation that they stood the test of time. Like those old bricks, may we all take each life's obstacles to strengthen our character . The kind of character that persevere against all odds.

    That's interesting sis, eggs Really? Ang galing naman =)
    Naku sis, if you love bricks then you would love the UK. Lahat ng buildings halos bricks, and most of them have the bricks exposed like this one. I'd love to hear & see pics of your Intramuros day out with your friend. I've not been there for years! =)
