My Manila: The City Through A Brownman's Eyes

By Ian_delapena
There is this place that never fails to inspires me. It is where I run whenever I feel I need to rest my soul.
I call it Manila
This is where the Sun sets perfectly each and every single day,

I also get to be entertained specially when I've got no money for a movie (just an excuse... I'm just really lazy to go to movie houses =D )

This is also where you can find someone's mail being routed to its destination halfway across the world.

Manila gives me a certain high that allows me to go into this state where I can dream about its past and how we could bring it back in the future. It inspires me to love beautiful things as I remember its grandeur when it used to be known as the Paris of the east.

Many backpackers or tourists talks about Manila as a place that you would have just to skip on your trip in the Philippines, however as for me this is a must see. This is my country's soul that makes it unique from the rest of the world and gives it distinctly different from the rest of its south east asian neighbors. It's nothing like its neighbors.

China Town

It's just incomparable, this is where you can truly see the west fusion with the east. not because of its fast development just like advance Asian countries but because it is the way people have learned to live their everyday lives. So go on book that ticket and experience a whole new Asia in Manila!
