The view of Intramuros and nearby parts of Manila as seen from the Presidential Suite of Manila Hotel, conjures a green tinted image, where trees, old buildings, the walled city, the fine golf course and small man-made lake blends well altogether to provide an attractive cityscape. It's the city I've learned to love and hate. One that I'm forever proud regardless of the batterings of daily living and the urban challenges that awaits each day I pass by. Sure, there are 100 things to hate about Manila, but more things to love about it in return.
