Another reason I chose not to live in the city is the horrible traffic. Beware of the annoying jeepneys and most especially the buses. They WILL try to force you off your lane if you don't stand your ground. But if you survived driving in Manila, you can probably drive anywhere else in the world. I only go to the city to shop or attend special occasions. Those bus drivers really get in my nerves. They don't stay in their designated lanes.
During the monsoon season when the country experiences heavy rains the city is prone & I do mean prone to getting flooded. When I was still in college I was forced to walk through a flooded city street to get to my car. Walking through a flooded street is like walking through garbage. You'd see all the city's trash floating. There's also the danger of falling into an open manhole and I'm talking about a real manhole & not the "organic" type. Hehe! I had to bathe in alcohol afterwards. That is why I don't live in the city.
