Oh! that's interesting, people who live in those slums can afford to buy things in shopping malls. Are you kidding me?

Good thing that Manila is building a supertall. But I'm not impressed with the architecture.

you'd be surprised! There are malls in Manila that cater to the lower income groups too. But honestly, I do think that they are better off saving their money for things they need more like education but then I think again that it is their simple joy to be able to go to the mall and shop. Who am I to stop them?

Most malls that cater to lower imcome groups in The Philippines mostly sell cell phones or anything related to that. Though they'll have some stores and of course the fast food chains.

It is true that the Philippines is considered a developing economy. And that is exactly what has been happening since the early 90's - it is developing. It is wrong to think that just because a country is classified as "third world" or developing that the whole country is nothing but jungle and slums. I hope that the pics in this thread change whatever opinion you have about the Philippines as well as other developing countries.

Like Cokelitro said, the term third world doesn't apply anymore. It's either upper, middle or lower income. The Philippines is indeed a middle income country.

mosaic, the truth is yes. majority of the people who live in slums are actually quite affluent and cash-rich. unbelievable but yes they have a great buying power. if you visit manila's slums, a typical house has the following:

huge flat-panel tvs
complete home appliances (8-burner stoves, washing machines with dryers, etc.)
huge refrigerators
air conditioners
and more...

but they do prefer to live in slums...

because they find it more cheaper plus if the slums got demolished they will have instant money or instant housing from the government.
