I'm Singaporean btw..."

Ikr, with the establishment of Makati subway(different from the Metro Manila subway), this would look and feel even more like first worldish financial city like New York or Tokyo not just on a developing SEA level.
don't dream makati will look like New York or Tokyo. The two cities are modern cities with complete facilities, the community lives prosperity , integrated transportation, development gets direct costs from the government and does not borrow ..* this is very different from makati/manila who lack funding and the people still live in poverty,except like Singapore, their city claims like New York / Tokyo are more reasonable

No need to dream because Ayala Avenue and parts of Makati already kinda have that Manhattan vibe and BGC is already at par with SG vibe. Although yeah overall devt needs more improvement just like Jakarta or Bangkok for that matter. But at least we already have pockets of something we can compare to New York and Singapore. How about yours?

In these videos you can see the big difference in the layout of both cities

Jakarta

The skyscrapers are scattered and stretched out along the highway. You can see from the video that it a very car-centric city



In Manila, the skysrcapers are in clusters (central business districts):

Makati


BGC


Ortigas


And there are least 5 other smaller CBDs besides those. Not only do the clusters look better from a skyline perspective, but when you're on the ground, it's much more easy for pedestrians to walk around. The CBDs in Manila are more pedestrian-friendly than the ones in Jakarta.

Nah, it's okay manolopo. No need to cast more pearls to swines cause no matter what you present them and even when evidences are shown on their very nose they'll just trample it on their feet. Just let them see for themselves. We all know how it feels who had already been there. It's useless to keep rebutting coz apparently you know already what I mean.

What street is that? Is that your widest road? And where are all the new cars there? I saw more motorcycles there instead. In Manila you'll rarely see them along the main thoroughfares. You certainly is like Vietnam with motorcycles everywhere. See how you're more similar to HCM than Manila or Bangkok. Do you consider motorcycles as cars?

Try this, Commonwealth Ave in Quezon City, Metro Manila. Where the MRT7 is currently being constructed and runs up to 18-20 lanes in its widest range. You'll also see the massive Manila skyline and the extensive green areas on that part of a Metro Manila.

OMG can u find Jeepney in tokyo, newyork, singapore?
No because thats totally a Philiipine vehicle trademark. Only idiots would look for jeepneys in Tokyo. Your funny guy. But definitely a jeepney is more valuable in general than a motorcycle, right?

Btw the data you should was country to country not city to city

You’re not understanding the point. Highways are fine. But you also need walkable areas. That’s what makes a good city. If you’ve ever been to Tokyo or Madrid, you’ll see that it’s not a bunch of highways. There’s lots of places to walk around. Most cities in the US revolve around highways, but when you ask people where their favorite part of the city is, they always name the one or two parts of the city that are walkable. Manila as a whole is not like that, but at least we have several areas that are walkable.

Nowhere in Jakarta looks like this


Do you see how these people are WALKING around? Thats why people like going to that part of the city.

Fawk Majapahit! Glory to the Philippine rebellion against the Indonesian Empire!

Majapahit-Luzon wars

In the Battle of Manila in 1365 is an unspecified and disputed battle occurring somewhere in the vicinity of Manila between the forces of the Kingdoms in Luzon and the Hindu Empire of Majapahit.

Even though the exact dates and details of this battle remain in dispute, there are claims of the conquest of the area around Saludong (Majapahit term for Luzon and Manila) according to the text Nagarakretagama[12] Nevertheless, there may have been a battle for Manila that occurred during that time but it was likely a victory for Luzon's kingdoms considering that the Kingdom of Tondo had maintained its independence and was not enslaved under another ruler. Alternatively, Luzon may have been successfully invaded but was able to regain its independence later.[13][14]

War between Sulu and Majapahit

In the mid 14th century, the Majapahit empire mentioned in its manuscript Nagarakretagama Canto 14, written by Prapanca in 1365, that the of area Solot (Sulu) was part of the empire.[15][16] Nagarakretagama was composed as a eulogy for their emperor Hayam Wuruk.[17] However, Chinese sources then report that in 1369, the Sulus regained independence and in vengeance, assaulted Majapahit and its province, Po-ni (Brunei), looting it of treasure and gold. A fleet from the Majapahit capital succeeded in driving away the Sulus, but Po-ni was left weaker after the attack.[18]

We will fight you in cities, the air, the mountains, the jungles and the seas. Glory to the Philippine rebellion! Down with Majapahit!

LOL. The second one is on top of a mall. Most big malls in Manila also have skywalks on the top floor. If your example of a walkable area is a mall, then thats sad.

Im sure there are small parts of Jakarta that are walkable. But thereís no area of Jakarta thatís walkable and is the size of BGC
