It was the beginning of twilight in Tondo. The roosters gave their wake-up calls to the natives. A wooden door in this shanty town opened, and out came this young girl wearing just her underwear. She was silent as she squatted on the wooden platform which separated her mix-matched home of found wood and boxes from the brown water below . She stared through the morning light as the new beginning of no hope stared back.
