I always love pics from Fort Boni, it's a new, modern place with lots of energy.

I just wish that government won't centre too much in Manila and would also try to develop the other regions in the Philippines like in other countries that the smaller cities can almost equal the capital because they also have good roads, Metro, bus transportation, traffic lights, parks, public library, good public buildings etc.

Exactly. Our second biggest metro area, Cebu has the most pathetic skyline.

In Indonesia, people can enjoy the same amneties as the capital in the 2nd and 3rd city (choice of good would even be as par as gucci, zara, louis vuitton etc), but not further, life is less crazier there as the trafic is not as hectic and crazy as the capital, they also have busways... The development is focused mostly in Java but has been spreading lately, and all the large cities are fairly ok with public libraries, parks, malls, good main roads (not alleyway roads), hospitals, some sort of public busses etc. Other islands are probably slightly less developed though most of its major towns are as good.

Most Indonesians cities are built for vehicles and people travel with motorbikes, pedestrians are not happy in Indonesia... Most of the street sidewalks are small and sometimes missing, walking is a pain.... It appear in Philippines people walk alot more than Indonesians.... BGC is good people seem to enjoy the pedestrian oriented zone

^ The Philippines doesnt even have a second city. Cebu and Davao look like towns.

Why dump ? These are nice. Like it makes you feel like existing in those times especially in the painting where men and women were having a picnic outside so nostalgic. What I also love is that they were still written in Espanol, it sounds more interesting than English.
