This from my post on Facebook:
Dan Brown's Book said that Manila is the Gate of hell, well I don't agree on that, Manila is hell itself.
Think about it, the place has trash all over, people pee and shit anywhere, people litter the streets and make noise until the wee hours of the morning, and the stink, it fucking stinks and the people? Most of the people are I think devils but there is always one or two reasons to love this hell.
Manila used to be a beautiful city and then war and poverty all struck at the same time. Many old and beautiful palaces are in ruins, have been destroyed or have been replaced by architectural nightmares of malls and condominiums.
People are over reacting as usual and it pisses me off.
Well maybe Dan Brown did a good job by speaking of Manila that way. He will have more sales now.
