Mabuhay, Viva Manilena !!!

This blog is about the people, travel, adventures, books, art & culture, food, the sights, the sounds, happenings, and all there is to know about Manila (and the whole archipelago). 

I love Manila, I love the Philippines!  


From the history book:   Manila, My Manila by Nick Joaquin

1. On May 19, 1571, Governor Miguel Lopez de Legazpi occupied Manila in the name of the king of Spain.

2. On June 3, 1571, Legazpi formally gave Manila the title of city and proclaimed it the capital of the New Kingdom of Castile.

3. And on June 24, 1571, a municipal government was established in Manila.
