Hello ThoiryK. Your picture of my country made me very sad. You featured the good places in other countries and made as subject one of the worse locations in mine. I don't doubt all countries have their "bad side" so before anyone who'd see Manila pictures you show and judge my country so unfairly...I want them to see superbly taken pictures of Manila by ChowSinWon at http://www.panoramio.com/user/1037983.
Greeting from Manila where I came for a week on a business trip. I hope I will be able to visit some nice places so I could take some good pictures. If you have any suggestion where I should go, please let me know.
I placed some pictures of the Phlippines, which I hope you will like this time.
Now is April 07, 2008. i remember where im coming from ofcourse in this beloved place of slam in manila.This picture is my inspiration where im coming from.Im now working as a Managing Director of Sheraton Hotel & Towers Dammam KSA.
Thank you for posting better pictures of the Philippines (I forgive you now... Sorry, I am very nationalistic). I happen to be CEO of the official online marketing arm of Greater Subic Bay Tourism Bureau. I'd like to invite you and Ismael (kabayan!)to visit Subic Bay Freeport (former U.S. Base turned into a tourism and industrial complex).
We have LOTS of beautiful spots in the Philippines and hope to tour you myself sometime (which I hope would be before I leave for UK...hehehe)
Dear thethinker777, Thank you for the invitation. In fact I visited Subic Bay just after the Americans left. Things must hve changed a lot since then. I am planning to visit Manila again at the end of the year. I might call on you then
I'd be happy to show you how much Subic Bay Freeport Zone has changed. Check www.greatersubic.com. You may contact me thru email@example.com. I am looking forward to posting some of your pictures of Subic on the site. Take care.
Shanty town on the river bank. A quiet testimony to the still-strong fabric of society in the Philippines, where marriage is still revered as a lifetime covenant, and people's consciences govern their conduct amongst each other. The quality of our life is measured by the LOVE that surrounds us, not the creature comforts we might partake of.
