Manila is the 108th easiest city to live in


So if Manila is ranked 108th in this survey, I guess it's not that easy at all, huh? We're nearly the same rank as some very difficult Asian & African cities (where all the other SouthEast Asian ones, I have no idea), so it must be pretty bad.

I couldn't care less! I LOVE MANILA! It's dirty, it stinks, it's crowded, it's noisy and there's loads of pretentious people...but it's also lively, never boring, cheap, fun and there's loads of pretentious people. AYLAVETT!!!

So what if it's not "easy to live in?" It can be a breeze, once you get to know the ropes and be streetsmart. I love it in just the crazy way it is.

I mean come on! Where else can you go out to have dinner with 8 friends, drink loads of shots, and still just pay over Php 260 (US$ 5.50)???

I've been to Manila for a week or two, and I have to say I freakin' love it there! (Sarcastically speaking of course, hehe)

I just wonder if my hometown Davao City was included in the list though. It sure is livable here down south. Cheap food, clean water, clean air, & crimes at its lowest rate among others. And you might be thinking terrorism is at its highest activity here (common misconception: Mindanao=terrorism) but actually, terrorism is barely seen in this parts. We're miles away from the red zones.

Putting biases aside (or at least trying to), I would have to root for Davao as more livable than Manila. Hehe... Seems like I just can't do away with the bias. Well, why don't you just come around fellas, I'll show you!
