    No matter where you are in the metro, from the meanest, poorest slum with no running water and kids poop on the street, to the richest most exclusive places, you're bound to see a leggy, fair-skinned teen-aged girl wearing short shorts and tight shirt.

    I was born and raised here in the Philippines pero ayaw ko sa mga ugali ng mga filipino at kung paano umasta. Madami akong hindi magandang karanasan sa pilipinas kahit sa business. Merong gaming shop sa mall at suki na ako dun for many years since teen pa lang ako, naka 100k or more na ata ako at kilala na ako dun. One time, last year, nag take advantage sa akin at inuto pa ako at they lied pa. Anyways, to make long story shorter, madaming business dito, they don't care at all kung malugi ang mga customers nila as long as hindi sila ang malugi which is i think ay unfair. Management is my major in fact. One of the keys para mag succeed ang business ay Customer's satisfaction at dapat service oriented, hindi profit oriented. Simula noon, hindi na ako bumili dun, never na. madami pa akong karanasan, hindi lang sa game store.. madami sa pilipinas ang manloloko, kahit driving school etc to name a few. Nakakatamad lang ikwento lahat dito.

    Ang nagpapayaman sa negosyo ay consumers or customers. If you don't treat your customers right, at mahilig ka manloko at magsinungaling sa kanila, hindi ka babalikan..

    Last month i was in SM Aura, samsung store at maganda service nila at hindi nag te-take advantage.. I wanted to buy charger ng S8+ ko, sabi ng girl samsung employee dun, as long as na sakin pa ang receipt ng S8+ phone ko which i bought last year papalitan nila ng brand new at ayaw sana nya na bumili ako ng panibagong charger dahil masasayang lang daw ang pera ko.. it means, service oriented sila kaya big fan ako ng Samsung. hindi sila mukhang pera.

    the club scene in MM is no where near in any of our provinces. in the late 90s and early 2000, the band scene was synonymous with clubbing. we were dancing to live music.

    the techno genre has taken over but it is still good but not great.

    nostalgia na naman...sigh..

    From what I remember of Manila..hmm..A decade ago, I spent my time visiting seedy places in Manila, ever heard of bathhouses? Grabe.. :hiya: Manila is a place of contrasts - ugly, decrepit buildings on one side, classy and posh on the other side. Did a lot of stupid things back then..some bittersweet memories really..clubbing and drinking..may mga friends akong nauna nang mag-abroad dati, so whenever they go on vacation, ako kaagad ang tinatawagan nila para gumimik. Sigh. Those were the days. The sad reality of life is that life cannot sustain constant highs. It's always ups and downs, always one fleeting moment to the next. Sorry if I went on a tangent, but my memories of Manila do that to me. ;)

    Exciting sa Manila. Lots of fun things to do. Laidback.

    I used to go to MOA in the morning after my shift and chill by the seaside. Wala pa tao pag umaga.

    Mabaho ang dagat. Last time I was there mahangin mga pero mabaho ang dagat at kulay itim.

    When I left Manila, wala pang MOA (kino construct pa lang).

    As a probinsyano na nag aral ng kolehiyo sa Maynila, sobrang saya sa Maynila. Bar scenes are great, so many pretty girls esp sa University Belt at Taft. Go to motel ko dyan ay yung Victoria Court Malate :glee: Funny thing is, wala akong naging GF na taga Manila, mostly from nearby provinces din. Feeling ko masyadong conservative ang mga taga Manila, unlike mga probinsyana na parang mga nakawala sa hawla :glee:

    HUNTING FOR YOU and running you over with my vehicle.

    think i missed half of my life when i didn't go clubbing in manila. i just focused on studies and that was it.

    if there's anything i miss in manila, that'd be the night scene. i'm 30 now.

    @gotta sa toilet, i agree with you on that. walang tissue usually sa toilet satin saka seat covers. hinohoard kasi nung iba yung tissue kaya yung mga malls hindi na nag lalagay minsan.

    pero malls are more convenient when you're running errands though.

    last time i went home was wimter of 2014,

    i was impressed by the devt of BGC, it was mu first time in SM Aura, and driving around the Fort felt like I was in a different country,

    my american friends liked the pictures ive taken in greenbelt with the ayala bldgs as my background. it chamged their impression of metro manila.

    i also had fun in the terraces of Trinoma, parang park but i felt really safe.

    we also went to eastwood to see where my brother worked, and like BGC was impressive with its new bldgs and stores.

    growing up, we frequented the morato-west ave areas for dining, greenbelt-virramall and ortigas (mega and galle) for shopping, and the ccp complex area for leisurely strolling or jogging during weekends.

    to be honest, i wish, kahit makati and the fort lang were rid of squatters and shamties, para maipagmalaki lang sa tourists.

    sana magka zoning na for the legal residents of metro manila.

    yan ang sinasabi ko nahuhuli sa bunganga ang isda. Obviously si nikki lumaki sa hirap at hindi familiar sa magagandang lugar sa Metro Manila. Lumaki kasi ako sa sa bandang greenhills, wack wack to be exact noh. kaya maganda ang lugar namin. Tapos malapit lung ang makati at ortigas kaya parang ordinary lung sa akin sa akin ang matataas na building. Kaya kahit nagpunta na ako sa ibat ibang bansa, hindi ko dinodown ang pilipinas katulad ng ilang OFWs dyan noh.
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ito talaga si kafamz aka langaw tungtong basura, :lol:.

    wala pa naman the Fort and Eastwood noon, kaya pano ko masasabing nakalikahan ko.

    talaga naman Ortigas, Ayala, Morato/West Ave, Vira Mall Greenhills ang puntahan dati.

    can you describe to me how Shangrila Makati looks like, or Mandarin Oriental, yung sarado na, para magkaalaman na.

    my grand parents are from Horseshoe Village and Dasma Village, can you tell me how those look like, sige nga.

    or the old Unimart na lang in virramall, sige nga kung madalas ka dun.

    san section ang meat products at ano mga paninda nila.

    go! langaw tungtong basura, impress me. :glee:
  • kafamzkafamz CavsNo1fan PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ako pa talaga hinamon. May malagazebo dyan sa unimart dati sa entrance. kakain pa kami ng ube ice cream parang cool something yung pangalan noh. Like ko yung malapit na shakeys kasi may libreng mask ng superhero pa. May parang pond din sa gitna ng viramall at greenhills shopping center na may isda. At syempre ang pinaka favorite place ko ay Nova Fontana.

    at hindi ko kailangan i impress ang nangangamuhan sa ibang bansa dahil hindi kailanman naging successful dito sa pinas. ahihihi :glee:
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    hynaku, yung pond, kahit mga yaya alam yan or baka yaya ka dati.:lol:

    wag kang patawa. yung sinabi mo, eh kayang sabihin ng minsan lang pumunta ng virramall.

    san ang meat section ng unimart dati, kung talagang madalas kayo dun at kung talaga ngang dun kayo nag go grocery at shopping.

    hynaku, pauso ka, kafamz, :glee:
