A dainty silhouette covertly drowns in the luxury of
modernity, where material assets are tickets for an escape.
Here lies a city, where its people, with finesse, strive while
grappling with the changes of a life from stilts to bricks.
One nomadic soul within this anxious urban existence
allegorically portrays the exorbitant lifestyle of the new
metropolis. Fragments of grandeur and charm are laced
with desire and despair, as they are juxtaposed against
her morality; emanating both passion and loathing.
