Did I say there aren't rich people there ? Manila also has a lot of rich people. I just don't agree that the Indonesian rich are richer than the Filipino rich people. We cannot really say that because we do not have access on their assets, we do not really know how much money they really have in the bank.

errrr.... no comment

No on the other hand the richest of the Philippines are way richer than Indonesians, although i've read about the GINI index study that shows 30 ruling dynastic family controlling 90% of the economy. Yes in Indonesia the wealth are fairly well distributed as compared to the Philippines.

You have the data, the luxuries, etc.. how come you still have this scenario of life for a common hard working Indonesian family man? I thought it was a story of my fellowman... Or it was just a propaganda of world bank?

You have a 1000USD higher on PPP per year as compared to our working class masses.
Because its still a developing country?

Note: Jakarta has a bigger population and land area than what Metro Manila has. What if I consider the Malls located within the so called Mega Manila? The number of malls will surely exceed the 250 plus mark. Plus the fact that malls in the Philippines are usually bigger.

Err any source of this 200, as far concerned the listing also included supermarket and boxstore? Anyway i have credible source that mentions the mall space overall total is bigger (despite ph having bigger mall and your claim of having more mall) and that there is no other city with such figure and also 170 malls doesn't really include the metropolitan population, only the 10 million proper city population.

Why does it matter to you anyway if we are better at something? Beside numbers of malls doesnt really make any city better And you only wanted to be better at everything.

Just want to prove to you that you don't know much about the Philippines. Who really knows much about the Philippines other than its inhabitants? So which is more credible now? Second-hand info or a first-hand info?
