Litratong Pinoy#73 Amoy (Smell)

The moment we went out of the Sydney airport, the smell of the pines met us. The air smelled so fresh in Sydney, it was something really surprising and new for us who came from Manila.

Pilipino:
Sa sandaling nakalabas kami ng paliparan ng Sydney, amoy ng pino ang sumalubong sa amin. Preskong-presko ang simoy ng hangin ng Sydney, ito ay bagay na nakakabigla at nakakapanibago para sa aming nanggagaling pa sa Manila.

It was a far cry comparing it upon going out of the Manila airport because smell of exhaust smokes can be smelled in the streets of Manila. It is because there are still places in Sydney that has a lot of trees and these trees can clean the polluted air produced by factories and vehicles. While in Manila, it seems cutting trees is the norm and this is without regard to the effect to the environment and health of the people.

Pilipino:
Malayong-malayo kung ikukumpara sa paglabas ng paliparan ng Maynila dahil usok ng tambutso ang maamoy kaagad sa mga daan ng Maynila. Kasi naman, may lugar pa nang maraming puno ang Sydney at kaya ng mga punong ito ang linisin ang masamang hangin na gawa ng mga pabrika at mga sasakyan. Samantalang sa Maynila naman, parang uso ata sa atin ang magputol nang magputol ng mga puno nang walang pakialam sa epekto nito sa ating kapaligiran at kalusugan ng tao.

This is Hyde Park which is located in the business district of Sydney and it is just beside the St. James Church.

Pilipino:
Ito ay ang Hyde Park na nasa distrito ng kalakalan ng Sydney mismo matatagpuan at katabi niyan ang St. James Church.

ibang-iba talaga ang amoy ng Manila, at siguro ng buong Pilipinas kung ikukumpara sa ibang bansa. tulad sa Baguio, kapag nasa Victory terminal ka, amoy ukay-ukay; sa Davao airport, amoy durian...parang wala pa naman akong naamoy na airport na amoy daing.:P

sa panahon ngayon, talagang maituturing na luxury ang makaamoy o makalanghanp ng sariwang hangin. :)

@Lindz: I stand corrected on the name of the church:)

@Willa: Nope, am here in Pinas. The pictures were taken during our Australian trip some time ago.

@all: I have to agree, smog, traffic, chaos and all, there's no place like home. I just wish we can make things better at home.
