Haaay, Manila WAS indeed beautiful before our time. DAFUQ. What happened to the capital of the Philippines?
Let us emphasize the picture of quiapo. Darn. In every part of that particular place, you can see many people including the muslims, selling some random shit stuffs. Oh wait, I can't blame them, its because of $#@$ poverty, right!right!right! Shhhh. I know. But in fact, I can blame them. First thing first, why do people go and engage in sex if they know they can't even feed themselves? F*ck logic. Dude, that's why there are so many people here in this cUNTry. Anyway, you can see in the photos above that the old city had no POLLUTION, POPULATION, HAD LOTS OF TREES and yea, just like my source said, "THERE WERE WIDE SIDEWALKS".

Wala na tayong magagawa pa sa mga nagaganap ngayon, ang magagawa lang natin ay tumulong upang hindi na madagdagan ang mga nakasisirang bagay sa ating bansa ;)
