"The Philippines is a predominantly Christian nation in Asia/Southeast Asia."

One time, an Indian was told that India is predominantly Hindu. He cut in right away and said firmly, "we do not dominate anybody." Hence majority is the better word.

one of the best threads on SSC.

defnitely one of the best threads ever on SSC , with superb real genuine street-level images of life in Philippines capital it makes me wanna travel to Filipina today ! I'm already tired with black and white images of Philippines/Manila spreading all over sites and media when in reality most of things on the ground are something in between as depicted on this thread, just as the case of any other countries. Another great thing on this thread is that u show images of people on the streets- and it is the people who live up any cities !

NatGeo photographers inspires me a lot....thanks again for the compliment, guys....makes me wanna post more!

At first glance I thought these are scale models or miniatures with matchbox size vehicles.

Then I realize they're real!

Once again, great job man.
