Wow, walang traffic. Too bad Atienza fails to see the beauty of Manila. He would rather tear down buildings and build new malls and parking lots.

I had a chance to work with some people in the Intramuros Administration. Sadly, the rehabilitation of Intramuros has remained incomplete.

One of the grandest structures back then was the Jai Alai. Too bad, Atienza has no appreciation for Art Deco and architectural masterpieces .

mschumey07,

that's the price we pay for such ignorance. many people don't realize the importance of saving and preserving little of what's left of the past. building more shopping malls is not modernization at all, and expansion to untouched parts of the provinces is worse. this is what happens when you have idiots running a beautiful country. it's a good thing we have nostalgia manila to teach us all the importance of awareness. it's up to the younger generation to continue the struggle, to regain the beauty of the manila we all knew.
