I call it Manila
This is where the Sun sets perfectly each and every single day,
|Sun set at Manila bay|
Where a whole country comes together in celebration of their culture,
and where we can turn back the hands of time by walking along its streets
This is where we honor our heroes,
where we strengthen our faith
and where we can marvel at its rich architecture
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.
Most specially Manila is where I dream.

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.
