old manila

I know i haven't able to update this blog for quite sometime now, and i'm sorry its just that am busy right now and i haven't had the time to go out and take photos of my beloved manila. oh how i miss walking around town and taking photos, hopefully i'll get to post regularly on july.

For the meantime enjoy this gem of YouTube video presentation entitled "Manila. Queen City of the Pacific" created in 1938 by André de la Varre and relive the beauty of Old Manila and join me as i feel nostalgic. Feel free to check out my archive and see how different Manila was then to today and yet still the same... no matter what -- i still heart Manila :)

PS thanks señor enrique for this sharing the video

Fascinating video of Manila 70 years ago. Those were the days.
Back then, we were way
ahead of other Asian countries
politically and economically. Now
with a population of more than 90
million we are running out of space even to plant our precious palay.

Thank you so much for creating this blog. I look forward into seeing new photographs of Manila. I cant wait to come home... I am an American but I was born in the Philippines. It is my homeland, and I am proud to have grown up in Manila. I try to come home every year, but due to economical hardship Im afraid I may not be able to return this year. Titignan ko na lang ang mga litrato mo, Im sure this way my heavy heart could be relieved by seeing Manila. Kahit sa litrato lang.
