Manila, the beauty and the beast
Favorite thing: I liked Manila pretty much. I found the city very exciting, and dynamic, and was prleased to experience interesting mixture of culture. I loved the kind people there,a d also loved the fact that I can communica with a lot of people since they speak good english. beautiful churches, and parks, and funny zeepneys, nice food and beautiful sunset over looked from manila bay. ok this is the beautiful manila. but there were some ugly manila, too. the kids begging for money, people trying to over charge, and people trying to steal things. some flirty men checking on you, and.. beautiful park full of trash.. I took a picture. it has both beauty and the beast manila. nice kind people, and the park with trash.
the great thing is that, the beast part of manila can be improved with a little bit of care. hopefully next time I visit there, i can see the beautiful manila only...
Favorite thing: Being the Philippines' national fruit, it is said by many that the mangoes grown & picked here are definitely sweeter & much juicier.
Mangoes come here in different colors - yellow ones, the green and small ones called indian mangoes, the green & red ones which somehow tastes of wine. Try them all!
Fondest memory: Amongst the local restaurants, the green mango shakes are a favorite. Though these refreshing drinks are the best thirst-quenchers during the summer, these are served all year round.Related to:

Colourful paintings along Rizal Park
Favorite thing: When I was at Rizal Park in May 2006, there were many colourful paintings such as the photo lining up along Rizal Park, making the whole place seem so lively.Related to:
