‘Gateway’ to the Creator

DSC00296.JPGI took this photo last Jan 30 from a bridge connecting Gateway Mall and Araneta Coliseum to Farmers Plaza. The view represents the new look of the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City. The area is being rebuilt to be an answer to sprawling commercial parks and malls in Metro Manila.

Today’s Cubao is no longer one of the 80s that I used to go to. Ali Mall is now just one of the attractions. Fiesta Carnival is now replaced by a big shopping outfit owned by Rustan’s.

Going back to the photo, it’s great that amidst the commercial development and frenzy in Cubao, a protestant church was able to install that awesome facade. It’s a must to always remind the passers-by of their Creator and even at a time when mundane temptations are at their greatest.
