In fact you don't even have the Subway foodchain there lol while Phils has 11, hahaha.

Btw, here's how a subway is defined.

sub·way
/ˈsəbˌwā/
noun
noun: subway; plural noun: subways
1.
NORTH AMERICAN
an underground electric railroad.
synonyms: underground railway, underground, metro; informaltube

2.
BRITISH
a tunnel under a road for use by pedestrians.
synonyms: underpass, underground passage, pedestrian tunnel, tunnel

With both definitions, Manila definitely has subways, either by North American or British standards.


(an underground electric railroad/line)



(a tunnel under a road for use by pedestrians)






But anyway, we wont shamelessly claim we have Subway even though we have every right to say we have. we'll have to wait once the Metro Manila subway partially opens 2022, completely opens by 2025 and the Makati subway to be completed. Goodluck on your subway, lol!
Simply search "Jakarta subway" wont hurt, Dear. Don't forget to search "Manila subway" as well. After that, tell me about what you find. Does Jakarta subway exist? Does Manila subway already exist?

Thank me later for the free information ...

Jokowi approves Rp 571 trillion in Greater Jakarta infrastructure projects

Quote:
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has said the central government approved infrastructure projects worth Rp 571 trillion (US$40.12 billion) in Jakarta and its satellite cities – Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi – after they were proposed by Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan.

“We have made the decision that, within the next 10 years, we will complete projects with a total investment value of Rp 571 trillion,” Jokowi said in Jakarta on Tuesday. The decision was made during a limited Cabinet meeting at the Presidential Office.

Jokowi explained that the projects would improve public transportation in Greater Jakarta.

He also said the region's local governments agreed to establish a new institution tasked with accelerating the construction of public transportation infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Anies said the planned projects would also include the long overdue expansion of the clean water pipeline to improve the quality of tap water and expand services.

He said the central and local governments would jointly seek financing that is not solely dependent on regional and state budgets.

Speaking after a meeting with Vice President Jusuf Kalla on Tuesday, Anies said the projects would be implemented over the next 10 years.

According to the Jakarta administration, the city will have 223 kilometers of MRT tracks, 116 km of light rapid transit (LRT) tracks and a bus rapid transit (BRT) network that covers 2,149 km.

In addition, the city also set a target to provide tap water services to all Jakarta residents, develop waste treatment facilities and construct some 600,000 residences. “These are the examples of the projects that we will develop,” Anies said.

Sorry Jakarta isn't playing around. Go big or go home.

Manila was ok. Without decent public transportation, you feel stuck! Traffic is bad there. If you have a local friend to show you around the less major touristy spots, that would be much better. Many parts also feel like giant malls in the US. I've never been to Jakarta, but I'd think that is better for the city experience. Now going to other parts of the Phillipines.. that is great but that's more 'island' feel.

Jakarta has better public transportation. It's more extensive and covers more area of the city. Jakarta also has more and bigger highways. But the traffic is actually worse despite being a less densely populated city, because more highways causes induced demand, which causes more traffic. Malls are a much bigger part of life in Jakarta than in Manila because all of the walkable areas seem to be inside the malls. Manila actually has areas that are easy to walk around. To me that's more of a "city experience" than walking around a mall.

There's nowhere in Jakarta where you'll find this much outdoor activity on a typical night

And this area keeps on going and it's full of activity the whole way through. All those people would be inside a mall if they were in Jakarta

Another area. It's quieter, but still easily walkable, with lots of restaurants and businesses right on the sidewalk level


Another area


If those are too clean for you, there's always the Poblacion area for partying


I don't know of anywhere in Jakarta (besides maybe Kota Tua- old town), where you can get out of your car, walk around and experience the city. In Jakarta, the "city experience" seems to be more about being on the highway or inside the malls. The potentially walkable business districts are usually along huge highways, so that cuts out a lot of the walkability. Those areas are also centered around big indoor malls, so not many people walk around outside. There aren't many restaurants, stores and other businesses on the sidewalk level

THIS IS DISASTAH


Reports: Philippines might lose 2019 SEA games hosting rights, Indonesia and Thailand next in line

The Philippines might lose their rights of hosting the Southeast Asian Games 2019, according to reports. The reasons being put forth for the same is the lack of funding and unrest among the officials.

The Daily Tribune report that the Southeast Asian Games Federation Council is closely monitoring Philippines’ situation and might arrive on a decision shortly. It is believed that Indonesia and Thailand are ready to take up the opportunity to host the 30th SEA games if offered.

“The only thing they are asking is that if ever we’re going to withdraw, let’s do it as soon as possible so it won’t be unfair to whoever will replace us,” a Daily Tribune source told them.

“They are not happy, of course. First, we calendared 56 sports with a lot of new sports that didn’t even become demonstration sports. Then, there are reports about the lack of fund and squabble among sports officials, particularly in the POC (Philippine Olympic Committee).”

Mercer's 2019 quality of life index just came out

No changes for Manila or Jakarta. Manila is still 137, Jakarta is still 142. Bangkok went back 1 spot to 133

"Mercer evaluates local living conditions in more than 450 cities surveyed worldwide. Living conditions are analysed according to 39 factors, grouped in 10 categories:
  • Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement, etc.).
  • Economic environment (currency exchange regulations, banking services).
  • Socio-cultural environment (media availability and censorship, limitations on personal freedom).
  • Medical and health considerations (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution).
  • Schools and education (standards and availability of international schools).
  • Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transportation, traffic congestion, etc.).
  • Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure).
  • Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars).
  • Housing (rental housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services).
  • Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters).
The scores attributed to each factor, which are weighted to reflect their importance to expatriates, permit objective city-to-city comparisons. The result is a Quality of Living index that compares relative differences between any two locations evaluated. For the indices to be used effectively, Mercer has created a grid that enables users to link the resulting index to a quality of living allowance amount by recommending a percentage value in relation to the index."
https://www.mercer.com/newsroom/2019...ng-survey.html

They also included a personal safety ranking, and Jakarta is ranked ahead of Manila. Jakarta is 165. Manila is 167. So good job Jakarta

I don’t undersrand what point you’re trying to make with the video, but it seems like there isn’t a single shot of a vibrant retail or restaurant lined street. There are shopping malls, people crossing bridges and corridors, people in parks, or at a concert.
