Manila is surrounded and infested with individuals that lack in love of country and love of men. It's just a cycle. The government doesn't care and use low class men as their puppets or minions.

this problem is getting worse by the minute soon we might face the destruction of earth and the extinction of human kind. it is happening all over the world. We all dream of a better world but we need more than wishing to get us there. i believe that it is not to late for us we can still do something, and if we're gonna do something about it we gotta act NOW!!!

Its a shocker of place. Go to any part of manila in white t-shirt and watch it slowly collect bit of black soot. No emmsion laws on any public or private transport. Airport in the middle of the city. Endless container trucks pumping out black smoke all day long down slex to edsa and manila bay. A very dirty city full of great people. The LTO could do more but they dont give a shit.

Manila is the worst place on earth led by a corrupt government that doesn't give a hoot about his own people. He's too busy taking kick backs from the Filipino elite!
I'm stuck for 3 years on work commitments and it's killing me slowly. For heavens sake why no green space in Makati?
Why would politicians choose to make people suffer?
The Philippines is on crack I tell you!
