Yay! Someone from the Philippines! Welcome aboard!

From what I've seen in recent pictures, there are all sorts of new skylines and edge cities popping up in the Metro Manilla area. Has the economy taken off recently?

that's right, urban development here and there, hmmm...mostly politically motivated - especially those "skyway" road infrastructure in attempt to 'solve' heavy traffic.. i'd still say economy's picking up slow.. but its great what's happening where i live and grew up down south of the metro, where, as i see it, an alternative culture and lifestyle is subtly introduced.

mabuhay!
