A couple of weeks back, I mentioned about Manila here quite briefly. Manila has a lot of exciting things. The people. The streets. The taste. The language. The lifestyle. 
All these words may seem ambiguous at the moment; just like everything else, you must experience everything yourself to be able to understand every words that I've used to described.

Manila is Philippines' capital city, one of the sixteen cities that build up Metro Manila. Located in the black square. It is located on the eastern shore of Manila Bay with San Juan and Mandaluyong to the east and Makati to the South East.

Life After You

To start with, let's get acquainted with our Philippines map since this is the first post on the nation I've come up with. Just like Malaysians, with our West and East Malaysia segments, the Philippines a nation with over 7000 islands, too is rightly segregated to three types of areas ; Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
