Leaning Pisa Tree

Abe V Rotor
The Leaning Fire Tree

Fire tree (Delonix regia,) Family Caesalpinaceae.

At first glance the road and tree are tilting toward each other - which only shows the extent of the "Living Pisa" phenomenon. The tree is found near the junction of Regalado and Fairview avenue going to SM Fairview in Quezon City.

Actually there are thousands of leaning trees in Metro Manila that are pruned to keep them from touching power lines and communication cables running overhead. These are actually the few survivors, but sooner or later they too, will give in to the consequences of deprivation and the law of gravity. ~

The Leaning Fire Tree

Fire tree, burn and speak with rage,
before your flowers become your wreath;
burn the whole day through to its edge,
but never die with the sunset. ~

Hi Mr Rotor,

I read your post on coconut oil and TB.

How many tablespoonfuls of coconut oil should
one take to be effective ?

Might it be safe since it is a saturated fat ?

The alternative would be monolaurin supplements,
or glycerol monolaurate. What would be the required
dosage in milligrams or grams ?

You can reply to my mail at tham@inbox.com .

Hello! Fresh is best - take the buko or young coconut instead. It's complete in nutrition and health benefits - from its water to its soft flesh. A buko a day keeps the doctor away. Thanks for getting in touch - please share to others. This is the essence of this Blog. So with my radio program 738KHzAM 8 to 9 evening class (Paaralang Bayan)Monday to Friday. Keep tuned. Thanks a lot.
