Anyway, I'll be nice to you. Here I give you, who say BRT is no different from Premium P2P bus or whatever, a video about BRT in Southeast Asia ... And hey, Manila actually is there too

so for example, Jakarta and Manila are more economically powerful than cities like Vancouver or Abu Dhabi, that's why they're ranked several levels higher. But that does not indicate in any way that Manila and Jakarta have a better quality of life than Vancouver or Abu Dhabi. Not even close.

Hi manolop ..the survey is confusing how Jakarta has a good quality of life in comparison still low manila. Jakarta does not have many beggars, pickpockets, bad city infrastructure, poverty and so on. Manila always depends on foreign assistance especially America

maybe go work for the Economist or Mercer so you can have more influence on the rankings. Since you know everything

Just like LRT Palembang, LRT Jabodebek will use trains made locally by PT INKA

^ The buildings in the video look nice and fancy, but they lack substance to me, and they're not anything to actually experience. It's more about looking glitzy and glamorous. Maybe Jakarta just has a different philosophy on things. I guess if it appeals to them, that's fine.

One thing I like about BGC is that many of the skyscrapers have canvases on the sides for artists to paint murals. Some of them are small, some are huge and cover the whole side of the building. There's art all over the city, at least 25 different paintings, and there's also a lot of big sculptures too. People can walk around, get up close and experience the art.

Street art starts around 1:20 in the video

I dunno what you mean by lack substance, one of main things that attracts so many tourists to city like HongKong is its lightshow. Of course Jakarta isn't there yet, not even near, but it's surely nice to sip your coffee at night, looking those sparkling buildings from afar.

Street art like mural suits best at area where gloomy concrete dominates, to add a lil color and joy. While towers in Jakarta are mostly glassy and sleek, so big no no to have things like that in our downtown area.

Surely, each city has it's own way to look appealing to its citizen.

The lights are nice and all, but you can only see them at night. What gives those areas vibrancy during the day? How do people experience those areas besides driving around and looking at skyscrapers. Or walking around an indoor mall


And you're right. Most of the murals in BGC are on concrete buildings. Most of the glass buildings dont have them, but some do. Some glass buildings are built with a large blank canvas at the bottom for murals. Like these below:


The Bonifacio Global City (BGC) Art Murals ⋆ TenZeroFour TenZeroFour



https://www.leftoverjinx.com/2016/09...-bgc-2016.html


And on other non-concrete buildings

https://kojiarsua.com/2017/12/11/che...murals-at-bgc/


I'm not sure if this one is concrete of not, but it looks really nice
https://kojiarsua.com/2017/12/11/check-out-the-new-public-art-murals-at-bgc/


Here's an ASEAN mural. It has Indonesia on it

https://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/awe...-bgc-2017.html


It's like BGC is turning into a free public art museum

^^I actually like buildings with lightings and symphony shows and I think we have them in Metro Manila too. I can add fountains and streetscape with beautiful lightings in Manila later ...

Idk but you seem to not comprehend much what is being thrown to you.

Okay let me get this straight. How do you understand this? I added some words for you to better understand it in bold letters.

Versus "Does Jakarta or Indonesia already have extensive hyperloop system that the world can behold?" I was asking, if there is already an existing extensive hyperloop system anywhere in the world available. Of course I know Jakarta doesn't have one, clear as the morning sun. You did not get the context of the statement and has difficulty understanding it. Worst case, you might even suspected me asking if YOU personally own a hyperloop system instead of Jakarta or the world just because you cant read between the lines.

Now for the BRT try reading between the lines too. Notice the letters/words in bold.

Bonus we have foreign vlogger(s) doing Manilas transporation improvements. Do you have one lah?
You can tell me more of any other differences other than what I pointed out.
