A dear friend was relating her experience in Palawan that fix the impression on her on how cleanliness is sustained in the streets of Puerto Princesa. The tourist group was walking around the city when her brother threw his candy wrapper nonchalantly on the street. A local kid who was standing beside them quickly picked it up and threw the candy wrapper into the nearest trash can. The little boy then went back to her brother and politely told him and pointed to him the trash can. For a person living daily in the Metropolis of Metro Manila, the immediate reaction was shock because throwing trash on the road whenever and wherever, have become a habit of sorts that some people don’t mind it anymore. The little boy in Puerto Princesa opened up a big window of realization for my friend that Palaweños take to heart each one’s role in maintaining cleanliness in the city.
