    1. And Vigan. Kung napanood nyo yung history ng Vigan sa I-Witness hindi talaga sya kasali sa mga binomba nung WW2 dahil pilipina ang napangasawa ng hapon na naassigned dun.

    2. all sulok of intramuros have squatters and informal settlers, with sari sari stores, garbage, beggars, collector of parking fees etc... and the local government of manila or whoever takes charge of intramuros doesnt mind or take action

    2. Wala kasing gov't.agency ang Pinas for preservation ng mga old infrastructure kaya hindi napepreserve

    3. Rome and Russia also. It is so preserved and beautiful. I have yet to see Vienna.

  3. Unfortunately, may ibang areas sa Pinas na although di naman nasira ng giyera yung buildings, houses, etc...tao naman ang sumira over time. Dinisregard, di inalagaan, giniba para patayuan ng bago, etc. Kaya pag nagtatravel tayo sa labas ng bansa nakakainggit makita na yung mga modernisadong syudad, nagawa pa rin nilang ipreserve yung look at yung tatak ng kultura nila pagdating sa architecture.

  4. Gets ko yung gigibain na talaga kasi babagsak na yung building o bahay - pero nakakapanghinayang na yung iba pwede namang i-reinforce pero sisirain na lang in favor of adapting sa modern trend na dala ng western influence. O kaya naman, yung nasira na kasi hindi lang talaga nag-effort na alagaan.🙁 Wala eh, nasa tao lang talaga yan.

  6. Eh kasi sa pinas kaya walang masyadong matatawag na architecture ngayon na magrerepresent ng cultural identity except for old buildings & churches lahat trying hard maging western ang bahay, trying hard maging 'modern' kuno ung buildings pero pag tinanong mo ung may gawa ng building 'para design' 'nakita ko sa magazine' ang laging sagot. Tapos parang naneglect narin ang mga arkitekto sa pinas kasi napagkakamalan pa minsang engineer. Kalungkot lang.

  7. In some countries in Asia (Japan, China and South Korea) and Europe, they still have remnants of the Old World Charm because of their centuries-worth of history and civilization.

    Churches, ancient heritage sites, artifacts etc.

    1. This is because Manila was the second most devastated city in the world during WW2, after Warsaw.

    2. Hitler gave the orders to bomb Paris but the general asked to do so did not follow his orders. There's a movie about this.

      Delete
    3. Kasi they preferred that than masira yung city nila. Natuto sila after what happened to Warsaw.

      Delete
  9. Yup, dahil nakatambay sa atin ang mga Amerikano, tayo tuloy ang pinagdiskitihan ng Japan. Ganyang ganyan din ang mangyayari kung halimbawang magkagulo at kakampi tayo ng Amerika, tayo ang unang pasasabugin ng China.

    1. Teh before WW2 declared open city ang Phils.meaning walang military bases kaya hindi pwedeng basta bombahin pero binomba pa rin ng mga hapon! It was only after the war na nagkaron ng US bases dito. Huwag magmarunong sa history.

  13. despite the obvious flaws, pag asa Manila ako near Pasig river and environs, i can feel the its soul overflowing. Part na din dun na halos 100000 yung namantay. There's something about Manila that is hauntingly endearing.

  14. Never mind the architecture yung asal ng pilipines ang syang nakakapang hinayang mawala. I remember when everyone was so considerate and polite. Ngayon kahit yung mga hindi squatters parang squatters na rin ang asal
