Despite the heavy traffic and smoky air of Manila, one who’s lived there must admit that it reeks of romance. To get to your love, you endure public commute or defensive driving while facing the dangers of pickpockets, taxi fare scams, and whatnot. But once in the arms of your beau, the stress goes away. Really, you’d do it all over again any day of the week.

 

So where to hang out with your love? Check out this row of pictures depicting the soft amber and the yellow glow of the metro.
