DIVISORIA IS THE CENTER OF ALL TRADE IN MANILA . ALL THE IMPORT MERCHANDISE AND PRODUCE ARE ALL IN THIS AREA . RETAILERS FROM DIFFERENT PART OF MANILA AND PROVINCES ARE BUYING THEIR MERCHADISE HERE IN DIVISORIA AND RESALE IN THEIR AREA . WHILE SOME INDIVDUAL SHOP HERE TO SAVE . WHERE THEY CAN BUY RETAIL AT WHOLESALE PRICE  . BUT PEOPLE DONT REALIZED THAT THEY ARE SACRIFICING THEIR SAFETY TO SAVE MONEY .DURING THE BUSINESS HOUR THIS PLACE IS REALLY CROWDED WITH DIFFERENT KIND OF PEOPLE THAT YOU NEED TO ENCOUNTER IN THIS PLACE LIKE THE VENDORS , SHOPPERS , PICKPOCKETERS , SNATCHERS , SCOOTERS , CARTS AND ETC .I REMEMBER ONE TIME I READ IN THE NEWSPAPER THAT THE WIFE OF THE FAMOUS SENATOR SHOP IN THIS AREA WITH JEWELRY , DEFINITLY WITH BODYGUARD AND HER DIAMOND EARING WAS SNATCHED WHILE SHOPPING . WHAT HAPPEN THE FOLLOWING DAY ITS ANOTHER NEWS THAT THE POLICE WAS RECOVER HER DIAMOND EARING AND RETURN TO HER COMPLETLY . SO , WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS ? (Common expression here)BEFORE THIS FLEA MARKET IS ALLOWED BY THE CITY , ONLY ON CHRISTMAS TIME BUT TODAY . THE CITY ALLOWED THEM TO OPERATE TWELVE MONTH A YEAR . WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS ?BEFORE THE PICTURE YOU ARE SEEING IS A THREE ROAD LANE ON BOTH SIDE WITH CONCRETE ISLAND ON THE MIDDLE . WHY THIS PLACE MAKE IT SO DANGEROUS ? BECAUSE THE CITY OF MANILA INSTALLED A STEEL FENCE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ISLAND TO PREVENT THE PEDESTRIAN CROSSING THE ISLAND . WHY THE CITY INSTALLED THAT FENCE? IS THAT FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE PEDESTRIAN OR FOR THE VENDOR NOT TO BE DISTURB BY PEDESTRIAN WHO WANT TO CROSS THE ISLAND . THE PEDESTRIAN NEED TO WALK ONE BLOCK TO CROSS . IN CASE OF STAMPEDE DEFINITLY WILL KILL A LOT OF PEDESTRIAN .WHOSE AFFECTED ON THIS FLEA MARKET THAT THE CITY OF MANILA ALLOWED ?  ALL THE PEOPLE LIVE IN THE FIRST DISTRICT OF MANILA . WHO ARE COMMUNTING GOING TO WORK AND STUDENT GOING TO SCHOOL . THEY NEED TO WALKED HALF KILOMETER IN ALL DIRECTION TO GET YOUR RIDE . WALKING ON A THIGHT SPACE IN BETWEEN THOSE VENDORS . THEN AFTER YOU PASSED THOSE VENDORS . YOU NEED TO FIGHT FOR YOUR RIDE .THE REASON ALL JEEPNEYS ARE STUCK ON THE TRAFFICT .THEN IF YOUR DESTINATION IS ONLY THE UNIVERSITY BELT , THEN YOU ARE ALREADY HALFWAY . INSTEAD OF TAKING THE RIDE ITS BETTER TO WALK . AND YOU WILL PASSED THIS PLACE THAT THE CITY TRYING TO HIDE BY COVERING  THAT CANAL BRIDGE WITH STEEL DOOR . POSTING THE NAME OF THE BARANGAY OR THE COMMUNITY OF SQUATTER LIVING INSIDE THAT CANAL . THESE ARE  THE INFORMAL SETTLER ON THIS CANAL .WHY THE CITY ALLOWED THESE PEOPLE TO LIVE IN THIS VERY FILTHY PLACE ? LIVING HERE IS MORE THAN A HELL . NOW ITS REMIND ME WHEN DAN BROWN COMMENTED THAT MANILA IS A GATEWAY TO HELL BASED ON HIS NOVEL INFERNO . A LOT OF FILIPINO WRITER  ARGUED THAT DAN BROWN NEVER BEEN TO MANILA TO MAKE THAT COMMENT . I BELIEVE ON DAN BROWN HOW HE WROTE THE DETAIL ON THE SITUATION IN ISLA PUTING BATO . WE DONT NEED TO GO FURTHER RIGHT HERE IN THE CENTER OF THE CITY .WHY THE CITY OF MANILA ALLOWED THIS PEOPLE TO LIVE IN VERY INHUMAN CONDITION . I BELIEVE THOSE PIG LIVE IN THE PIGGERY FARM HAVE BETTER LIVING CONDITION  THAN THEM . WHY THE CITY OF MANILA DONT DO ANYTHING TO HELP THESE PEOPLE ? TODAY , THESE INFORMAL SETTLER  FORMED THEIR COMMUNITY . AND THEY HAVE THEIR ELECTED CHAIRMAN THAT LEAD THEIR BARANGAY OR COMMUNITY . LET ME EDUCATE YOU THOSE ELECTED CHAIRMAN ARE ALSO RECEIVE SALARY FOR THEIR POSITION FROM THE GOVERNMENT . MANILA IS VERY BEAUTIFUL CITY EXCEPT WITH THIS PROBLEM . HOPE THIS POST WILL WAKE UP THE CITY OFFICIAL  AND  HELP THOSE PEOPLE LIVING ON THOSE CANAL .
