Pasig River is no longer the stinky and murky river it has been lately known for. Thanks for this post - people get more aware of the famous Philippine river.

hi arlene, yes. it's not dirty anymore but it's not that clean also. but at least compared to what it was like years back, the river is better now.

lincoln, thanks for hopping by.

hi horny *****, yes. this is the old part of Manila.

They should renovate all those buildings... they are little jewels!

collapsingbarrycade said...

nice captures again. you're doing a great job featuring Manila even if you are from down south. proud of you, man!

mirage2g said...

What has contributed to the cleaning? Piso para sa Pasig? =D Nice to know!

Toe said...

Wow, you can sure make Manila look very quaint and beautiful!

the donG said...

lutch, gypsy, thanks!

ely, as for the area where i took this shot, hindi naman mabaho. maybe sa mga areas na mabahay.

jasper, kelan ba uwi mo?

sidney, i think they don't have plans for that yet.

barry, thanks. i personally like Manila the way it is now. although developing it in the future will be better.

hi gizelle, not sure but maybe "piso para sa pasig" helped more on its awareness. the river side areas as to where i took the shot is clean.

thanks toe.
