@youscoop: Isang araw matapos ang paglulunsad ng Manila Bay rehabilitation, marami na ang nakapansin sa pagbabago nito. Sa mga larawan na ito na kuha kahapon ni YouScooper Kiko Ribleza(@bankeronthego), makikita ang malinis na dalampasigan at magandang sunset sa may U.S. Embassy. Ayon kay YouScooper Kiko, may mga ilan pa rin umanong nagkakalat sa lugar. Ang kaniyang mensahe sa mga taong bumibisita sa lugar ay sana magtulungan ang lahat na panatilihing malinis ang Manila Bay.
The once contaminated waters and eyesore of nature have transformed into a rubbish-free beach that worth calling gem of philippines.
