  1. I have seen Tacloban City recently. While I believe the city has moved on after the wrath of Yolanda in Nov. 8, 2013, I have some continuous improvement suggestions like fixing the drainages of city streets, cleaning of the street sidewalks and repainting of buildings, both private and public, to reflect a renewed feeling and invite good vives for the tourists to comeback. The repainted Sto. Nino Church is very elegant looking. However, the Imelda Marcos Sto. Nino Shrine residence that was converted into a museum needs thorough cleaning. Big & beautiful chandeliers will look more beautiful if the surfaces are vacuum cleaned and dusted. Even simple cellphone camera can depict the dust.
