Sari-Sari

with one comment

The term sari-sari roughly translates to “variety.” Across the Philippines, these sari-sari stores are set up to offer various commodities at a low price. Everything from snacks to toiletries to cell phone credits (load) can be purchased at one of these stores.

It is said there are around 800,000 sari-sari stores across the country, they require very little overhead and, sometimes, are attached to the side of one’s house.

This row of sari-sari stores sits near the water in Iloilo City, Iloilo.

1400 Smith Street

leave a comment »

50 stories tall and the 11th tallest building in Houston, 1400 Smith Street stands as postmodern architecture in the heart of Houston, Texas. With Chevron as a major tenant of the building, the building served as the former headquarters of Enron.

Enron financed the construction of the circular skywalk that links 1400 Smith Street to a building across the street.

Construction on the skyscraper was completed in 1983.
