Crisis, What Crisis?

This Starbucks under a JF Investment Centre in Jardine House in Hong Kong looks closed or not been opened yet. The coffee chain is not doing well during this financial crisis. Its share price more than halved and profits melted away.

McDonald's is still doing fine. They opened up their 1,000th outlet in China last week and its shares hardly moved down this year.
Maybe it is in their slogan "i'm lovin' it" here next to "love our homeland" on a street garbage can in Shenzhen, China.
Or maybe it is because for the price of one latte at Starbucks you get a whole meal at McDonald's.

Philippines 22 Years Ago

Troops of President Ferdinand Marcos defending the presidential palace in Manila in February 1986.
Posted again because of the publication of "The Last Day of Marcos" written by me in Photoq, the Dutch website with info, news and columns on photography in the Netherlands.
