This weird photo of termites eating my friends’ Alabang house is from a new Manila blog kept by a friend of mine. Brommel reflects the author’s quirky sense of humour and his enjoyment of the many strange billboards in Manila (the one below of a man’s wig being blown off to advertise adult diapers -- "one less problem to absorb", geddit? -- is one to savour).
Actually, having your house eaten by swarms of termites is no joke. I remember it happened to a friend of mine some years ago and his two-year-old was traumatized—she couldn’t sleep for months.
