I love Metro Manila as well as other Southeast asian cities. we should help each other so our region will sustain the developments happening. Southeast Asia is really booming right now.

We all know the difference between the rational ones and its counterpart. Like a cliche, you just can't please everybody. Btw, I had fun strolling Manila earlier. I went to the reclaimed area and construction is everywhere. Slow but steady boom for Metro Manila.

My younger Bro had a chance to see this city last October...was his first trip to South east Asia and made a side trip to Bangkok. He had a good time right there and might be back on April. The city made an impression on him i guess. My buddy from Atlanta has been back there twice now and stayed there for a month this December. Again , it probably made a good impression on him. Every city has their own strong points and bad points but why concentrate on the bad ones instead why not discover each and every good points the city has to offer? If a friend of mine visits LA for the first time, would i take them to Skidrow? Being bitter wont make you feel and look good.

Hopefully ill get the chance to see Manila this year or the next. For now ill rate this city as 10. Im eager to see the developments of this area.

ALWAYS THE OPTIMIST



Great!, BryceDerick, to see your bro and buddy liked it there. It's always best, if you can, to 'see it for yourself'. What I like about Metro Manila is it's always in transition no matter what the economy or political scene is. New malls, restaurants, skyscrapers, clubs, .....they all seem to sprout overnight, so every time I make my return visit, I have to go 'check out' these new places! But don't forget to see the beautiful countryside as well!

NVM. This guy's a troll. If you don't like the Manila skyline, then simply fuck off. We really don't need that shit here.

The other 2 forumers you just gave lecture to about calmness and moderation in face of negative comments must be smirking after they read what you've just posted (refer to your own words a few posts up) . Even jarvijarv and brickenridge didnt have these strong words to say. In fact they didnt even react anywhere near the passion and fierceness of thy words. They actually reacted quite calmly compared to what you've just exihibited... Your words would have carried more weight if only you did what you preach (again, refer to your own words a few posts up). ...tsk tsk tsk...**sigh**

But you are correct. I'll give you that. These trolls are just being what they are. Trolling is an art that these wannabes are obviously trying to perfect...The more we give them practice the more they become better...Some people just can't accept the fact that MM is not at all the shanty city that it had been made to look like over the years. They cant accept that we've got tall bldgs and theyre made of concrete too...But by all means, do shove some more of those pics up those trolls behind...Let the pictures speak, I always say...

I see, there are exemptions, from what I gather you are saying...Which is actually the reason why I "usually" dont react to someone defending MM from a trollish comment...We all give in to trolls once in a while.
