Manila is home to most of us, but it’s sad that it stresses us out so much that we always feel the need to escape from it. In fact, a recent UK study revealed that Manila is one of the top stressful cities in the world, alongside other Asian and African cities. That’s a big slap in the face, but if you’re living in Manila for quite some time, it’s hard not to agree. If you’re still wondering why (seriously?), here are the possible reasons:

7. Lack of public spaces

Why don’t we build more natural parks and walkable streets instead of huge shopping malls and overcrowded food parks?


6. Trash everywhere

Nakaligo ka na ba sa dagat ng basura?


5. Few parking spots

We need space… for our cars. You know, ones that are not in the way of pedestrians.
