The Rich and the Poor

I was driving through Alabang yesterday from Cavite, and I was completely shocked by what I saw. I saw rows of houses behind high walls. I wanted to have one of these houses. They were very beautiful, luxurious, and inspiring.

As I drove further, however, I began to see a different row of houses. These houses were in stark contrast to the ones I saw earlier. They were jam-packed houses made of thrown away material, and they looked like a beaver built these houses. And just across the street is a tall wall, separating these posh houses from these "squatter" looking houses.

How can two worlds exist right next to each other?
