I did define it. Right after I said 'similar', I spent the next couple paragraphs explaining in what way I thought they were similar.

Just re-read the previous post.

Nobody mentioned Delhi. What a dump.
Singapore is the most boring large city I've ever visited.
Beijing and Shanghai are about tied for worst air pollution.
Tokyo is the most difficult to navigate.
Seoul is not especially visitor friendly.
Bukhara was the most primitive.
I left Jakarta for Bali, shortly after arriving. It didn't look promising.

i haven't been to India so i didn't know much stuff there, the cities didn't look very comfy...

Singapore is indeed boring but it's not a true dissapointing place as i actually have quiet some fun there, the place is too sterile and everything is way too expensive, there's nothing to do but going clubs there... the food is great though

Shanghai's air pollution is nowhere near as bad as Beijing's--not by a long shot. It's pretty easy to look this up.

you don't like the fact that i said Manila being a dumper than Jakarta, so you want to prove the world that its a less ****hole?



define similar
Makati & BGC aren't the only CBD. Ortigas & Eastwood are nearby, but they're a different CBD. And Alabang is a 3rd CBD. Downtown Manila is a 4th, but I'm only talking about areas that are up to 1st world standards.

And BCC & Makati are growing every day. BGC is only halfway finished.

It's supposed to go from this (2-3 years ago)


to this


and nearby areas are being developed, like McKinley Hill, just South of BGC

those are nothing better than Jakarta's artificial islands, which have rows of Beverly hill style mansions (just google image pantai muntiara)





plan:



what makes you think Manila is the only one that is developing, Jakarta generates more GDP so how does it not have nice areas as Manila's

^ I dont see anything great in that picture, and the islands haven't even been built yet, so how would you know if they're better?

I didnt say that Jakarta didn't have nice areas, I said that there weren't more nice areas in Jakarta than in Manila, and that the nice areas of Jakarta aren't nicer than their counterparts in Manila. And you've only proved my point. If you call Manila a dump, then Jakarta is a dump. If you ignore the nice areas of Manila, then you have to ignore the nice areas of Jakarta.

But I do like how Jakarta is using its waterfront. In Manila, usually slums are near the water. Some nice places are near the water, like the Mall of Asia and the aquarium, but not nice residential areas.

it's called landfilling LOL, those are indeed man-made islands and it still continue to other parts of the coast and the next phase is to build the actual island that would also act as a barrier againts the rising sea water

how would you know its not better if you haven't been there

as i said before the city generates more income, so practically it actually have more money to develop its land

well that's according to you, the nicer area of Jakarta actually is alot nicer than Manila's but both are fun to live in.... and your point all along is indeed to say Jakarta being a dump, Jakarta and Manila is not that equal, to others both may be a dump but to me Manila is just plain dump because it dissapoints me

and so what if Jakarta is indeed a dump to many others

And you cant honestly say that when you mentioned Manila in this thread that you weren't making a comparison to Jakarta. This is the first thing that popped up when I googled "Jakarta vs Manila" Your video


JAKARTA VS MANILA - YouTube

I think this rivalry fuels you, so dont act like you dont like comparing the 2 cities. You love it. I dont think most people in Manila care about Jakarta or see it as a rival city. And anyways, even in your video, I dont see anything better in the Jakarta pics. That was your opportunity to show off what's better about Jakarta, but I dont see it. They actually look the same
