Do you live in the city?

What is your city like? Do you have busy streets and people everywhere? I have lived in the capital city of the Philippines, that's Metro Manila, from the day I was born. All the places I've been to are all busy streets. There are people everywhere. Traffic is everywhere too! Here are a few pics of what our city is like, for those who have never been to Manila.... http://www.paulynramirez.com/metro-manila-photos/

I also live in Metro Manila. In Malabon. And if you think the traffic is bad, you should try it with flood. It's rainy season again, and I'm certain that there are gonna be times again when jeepneys wouldn't dare to trek the streets. But even with all the trouble, the place grows on you, and even when you go away, you miss it.

I know what you mean. I used to live in Potrero! During the rainy season, MCU was always flooded! We'd have to wade like ducks on the dirty water that took ages to settle down because of the bad drainage! That has been a problem for years! I really think they should do something about that!

I was originally from Manila.. born in TAGUIG! Place and people are very nice. The city also have a high percentage of population. I remember back then, when we attend mass in Sta. Ana Church together with my family. But haven't got the chance to stay in Taguig when my mom decided to take us in my Granma's place in Rizal ..where I was raised. And there I was exposed to all kinds of stuffs and things in life. hehe! But then again we migrated, currently based here in Canada.. with my family..wohoo, what a long journey!

I now live in Metro Manila but I was born in Davao City, Philippines. Well, I suggest that you go out of Metro Manila to see the beauty of the Philippines and to breathe fresher air. Metro Manila is polluted but so many people live here and perhaps those who do not like are forced by circumstances not to leave Metro Manila, like me :)
