Manila Islands Philippines

Manila is the capital city of the Philippines. But we Filipinos call Manila "The City of Our Affections." This phrase is taken from an old Spanish writings; but it also expresses a modern sentiment.

Manila is all things for all Filipinos. It is the seat government administration, the fashion center, the intellectual pace-setter, the fountain head of all religious and educational movements; and of course, enormous shopping arcades. It is polictics and art; markets and churches; banks and universities - the whole life.

For most Filipinos - especially those who have yet visit Manila - it is political and economic summit, the city of dreams. For the millions ekking out living in its slum and for its westernized middle classes; it is an asphalt jungle - gawdy and ruthless but irresistable.

Manila is an old city, may be older than historians can determine. Perhaps having been around for a long time give its "Poise and Grandeur."
