This day started out early for me. All the employees of the Cebu City Government were scheduled to plant some seedlings along the roads in the mountain barangays of Cebu City. And because I missed the schedule when our department had to participate, I made sure to join today. And I’m glad I didn’t miss that experience. Here’s me planting a seedling:
Though as per my sister, why did we only plant one seedling each when we could plant so much more? Interesting question. But I was more impressed with how she answered me when I asked how come they call it tree-planting when it’s actually seeds or seedlings you sow. Without batting an eyelash, she said, “it’s because it’s the future you’re planting.” She just amazes me. Luv yah, himps! 🙂
