Slum Area in Ortigas Burned

This slum or popularly called squatters’ area is located in Barangay San Antonio in Pasig City. I believe it’s still part of Ortigas Center. The street is part of UA & P or University of Asia and the Pacific.

One day last year 2009 while walking to work, I saw this sight. Good thing i’ve had my Nikon D40 at that time.

There used to be sidewalk eateries in this area, catering to mostly construction employees.

Honestly, i was secretly delighted when the place got burned. I don’t like squatters.

But the following week, the settlers slowly rebuilt their homes.
