Picnic at Luneta After the New Year

I just mentioned here that our big family used to celebrate birthdays at Luneta. Sadly, we have not visited the place as a family in years (I sometimes jog around the area), not because we are unwilling to, but the place is looking more and more like a dump, and there is a proliferation of very "colorful" characters.

But word is Luneta is being spruced up again and last Dec 31, a lot of people gathered there to watch the dancing fountain, fireworks and to welcome the new year.

It was full of trash when we got there, its a sea of trash. But I won't post photos in case you get turned off. I'm thinking it's an isolated case, given the number of people there and the lack of trash cans... but it is a bit icky. We had to ask a sweeper to clean a bit of green/grass area so we can spread our blankets.
