Metro Manila mayors don't beautify their respective cities. They rely on mall owners to beautify the areas around the mall, but once you go outside the mall or the CBDS the areas look rundown. So everybody just congregates to the mall and the mall owners love that cause the money they get from the parking rates alone is ching ching. Tourists don't really like malls. Even Makati in poblacion area they can't fix the sidewalk and drainage to remove the stink but thousands of condo owners in that area including myself pay property taxes . YOu have to wonder where Binay spends the taxes maybe on overpriced school building.

Nag- MRT q going to Makati and Ortigas in 2010 - siksiknan na sya noon pa - inaatake talaga ako ng hika/asthma, i wonder lang ngayon. Dapat talaga mag-decentralize na ung goberyno

Un ang ayoko sa mga LGU sa Metro Manila. Ang laki kaya ng mga revenues nila pero naka-rely pa rin sa National Govt. (lumalaki utang ng goberyno sa ibang bansa)

Makati at Ortigas - kaya nila mag-build ng railways around their cities. Gawin nila yan in a span of 6-10 years, kaya yan

HIndi mo ba alam sa Makati me ghost employees, at me mga freebies na napakamahal ang bayad at marame ring mga hacienda ang nagpapatakbo at me mga overpriced buildings na binabayaran ang Makati budget. Saka pinapalaganap din dun ang mendicant mentality yung asa asa sa gobyerno para sa boto. Sana lang kung seryoso ang tourist dept na ibuild up ang tourism industry kahit yung lugar lang na parang nagiging "tourist belt" kagaya nang poblacion o makati ave, inaayos kagaya ng decenteng sidewalk , drainage na maayos para hindi amoy canal ang hanging habang naglalakad ka, walang mga basurang nagkalat sa mga daanan. napakapangit tignan ang naglalakad ka tapos walang sidewalk at me stagnant water na puno ng basura at dura , dahil hindi ayos ang lakaran . Kase ang standards ng turistang inaakit naten pumunta sa PIlipinas mas mataas ang standard ng kalinisian kesa sa locals. Dahil ba to sa kahirapan ng buhay kaya walla nang pakialam ang tao sa kalinisan ng kapaligiran nila. Kung ako turista hindi ako magaaksaya ng pera ko para pumunta sa isang lugar tapos traffic at basura makikita ko sa paligig pag naglalakad ako pwera nalang sa loob ng malls. Pero sa palagay ko naghihintay nga si Binay na ang magayos nang Makati ay ang national govt. dahil nga mendicant mentality ang Makati , constituents at leadership.

Narining ko ung ghost employees sa Makati sa panahon ni Jejomar Binay, wala rin nagyari. Ewan ko lang ngayon. I think kong e-impove pa nila mga lugar -e-maintain ung cleanliness at ayusin mga drainage, mas marami pang mga negosyo or buildings ang ma-put up at tatataas ang revenue ng syudad - sila rin at marami pa mga tao ang magb-benefit. Ayaw naman nila.

Pangit rin naman ang mga mentality ng mga Pilipino - aasa na lang sa goberyno. Kong may pera naman ung syudad - go! gamitin ung pera para sa kalsada, drainage at kong ano ano pa dyan para mas maging maganda at maayos ang syudad.

Put it this way, I'm used to such conditions! I don't complain as much as you!
That becoz theyre workaholic, Their job demands of them a lot. But just imagine if they already have a very demanding job and at the end of the day, they still have to fight it out with hundreds of thousands of commuters just to get home. Probably suicide rates would be off the roof.

If we are comparing cities like Tokyo or HK or Seoul with manila, naku its like comparing heaven and hell. Remember author Dan Brown likens manila as the gates of hell coz it is what it is. And the sooner we realize this, accept this, admit this, then maybe we can pressure our so called leaders to do something about it. In general, nakaka-diri talaga ang metro. Maganda lang sya from the air.

Sorry but if a european or american and visited manila for the first time, it will probably be my first and last. Sayang lang money. Sorry pero, lets face it, all of us have been abroad. The moment we stepped out of the airport kita agad ang difference.

Tonight's episode featured Cebu.
It was fast paced, and gave a 30 minute overview of Cebu (sights, food, products).

Overall, this reformatted version is a lot better than its old 5pm sleepy version.
New host is Tourism Usec. Catherine De Castro.
.
Produced by the Dept of Tourism,
the show uses the same Facebook acct of DoT (link).

I don't know what you mean by "beautify". What they need to do is clean up their streets, maintain their public structures, implement traffic laws etc. They can create "beautification" projects but if they cannot clean it, well, back to the same old ways. PH cities are not like self-cleaning ovens.
