Urban Planning Challenges in Metro Manila and the Philippines

I was browsing the blogosphere (i don't know why i continue to use that word, it just sounds catchy) and came across this well written piece. I'd like to share it with you, the readers...Let's face it. Manila is one of the last things that comes to mind when we talk about the world's most organized cities. This metropolis of nearly 20 million (daytime population) is the stereotype of a Third World city, where there are slums everywhere and issues like garbage disposal and traffic are poorly addressed. As the country's capital, it's such a shame that we only have this to show to the world. It smacks right against the good image that the Philippines is trying to project.

  1. Sometimes, I just want to drop a nuke in the middle of Manila and start from scratch.

WTF?! Sereno, who is NOT a Catholic, attends Catholic mass hosted by the Ateneo!

Liberal Party 'resistance slate' for 2019 an INSULT to the intelligence of Filipino voters

The Ateneo supports the 25% shading standard just because Leni Robredo is appealing for it

Leni Robredo's ignorance of geography could lead to war with China! 😮
