ManilaBlog chronicles anything good as well a little of the opposite that
I, the author could see, hear and experience around Metro Manila. The scope will not be limited to Manila; the capital city that comprises the term “Metro Manila” otherwise this blog would bore you to death. It will talk about all the comings and goings around the adjacent cities and municipalities such as Pasay, Makati, Pasig, Quezon, Caloocan, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Navotas, etc.
About the ManilaBlog Author
ManilaBlog is powerfully administered by Jeffrey, the man behind Gwapito.com. Jeffrey is a Cebuano, born not in Cebu, but in Iligan City in Mindanao. Then went to Cebu City for college and have worked there for a total of approximately 16 years. I am proud Bisaya and of my distinct accent in which Manilans are jealous of.
I have always liked living in the city ever since I was an adorable little boy. The sight of the buildings, the pretty women, the sound of cars and jeepneys. The noise of the tinderas, the shouts of kundoktors and dispatchers.
It saddened me every time our parents took us to the countryside in Kapatagan, Lanao Del Norte. But a therapy for me when going back to the city, in Iligan.
My first Manila experience was in June of 1997 and stayed for about a month to review and take the architects’ board. Then came back on December of 1999 and hung about two months to study and take architects’ board exam for the second time. Then back again in February of 2006, to concentrate on studying and taking the board exam for the third time! Thankfully I made it, got my licensed in August of the same year.
This is my longest stay in Manila, 15 months at the time of this writing. I practically love this city. But will never forget my love for Iligan and Cebu!
