Thanks for the pics..the 3rd, 4th and 5th ones are superb
The skyline kicks ass big time!

That building in the last pic looks like Gas Co. Tower in LA too.

if you look at makati from the north or north-west... it would look denser and there are less green. the south and south-east (the pictures on this thread) are usually golf clubs, ultra-expensive subdivisions and of course, fort bonifacio which has yet to be developed.

Not so new... But it's a rare view.

note: there really isn't a giant mango in Makati.

lol! I thought I'm experiencing hallucination for the first time when I saw that Mango. @boybaha, I guess you don't like that bldg that's why you edited it. But of all the things...why Mango? (because it's the Phils. National Fruit? haha).

Anyway, pretty cool pictures! Keep on posting, especially the night pictures.

I've never seen this thread before. Great pics! Especially from Renell and Luis...

Makati looks awesome with all the green, open space and the Skyway (?) running down the front. And it looks amazingly dense in Luis' photos... Sweeeeeet!!
