San Juan is the newest city in Metro Manila.

I did not know this until a forum member in istorya.net mentioned San Juan City in one of his/her post. I was curious and rebutted his/her comments, but replied to me it became a city a month after the election.

So I searched the internet to verify, and I found a data in Wikipedia. But I don’t trust Wikipedia so I went to Inquirer.net. So there, I am now satisfied.

RA 9388, An Act Converting the Municipality of San Juan into a Highly Urbanized City to be known as the City of San Juan. The date was June 16, 2007.
