SALAT OST


Tulad ng ilog na walang tubig
o ng balong walang laman
Ang kaniyang munting katawan

ay isang bituing walang kinang

Tulad ng Pagkalam ng tiyan sa araw
o pagkauhaw ng bibig sa gabi
Ang kaniyang paghinga’y 
hindi mapapatid…

PERA, PAGKAIN, PAG-AARUGA
SALAT PATI SA PAGKALINGA 
LUHA NA LANG ANG NATITIRA
PARA SA NATUTUYONG PAG-ASA 

WALA MANG MASILUNGAN
WALA MANG MATAKBUHAN
ITUTULOY ANG LABAN
HARAPIN ANG KINABUKASAN 

Tulad ng pagkalam ng tiyan sa araw
o pagkauhaw ng bibig sa gabi
Ang kaniyang munting buhay
hanggang kailan magiging api?

Arellano, and inaugurated on December 10, 1931, with a capacity of 1670 (846 orchestra, 116 in loge, and 708 in balcony).[1] During the liberation of Manila by the United States and Filipino forces in 1945, the theatre was severely damaged, losing some of its roofing and walls battered. After reconstruction by the Americans it gradually fell into disuse in the 1960s. In the following decade it was meticulously restored in 1978 but again fell into decay.

Manila Airport | Guide and Reviews

NAIA Terminal 1


TRAVELLER COMMENTS….

"I especially advise any foreign travellers to avoid this airport, the amount of corruption and bribery is just mind blowing." - shizumasa

"The current government administration should hire a bulldozer and a ramming team and start tearing it apart." - ajloren123

"It is run by thieves and extortionists neatly dressed in uniforms." - tailspin

"the worst airport on the planet. It has to be experienced to be believed. Think of a bombed out ruin and you’ll get some idea." - Brenty

"I am a filipino user of this airport and I don’t tolerate bad habits and facilities, but I have noticed a big improvement in this airport now, new and clean toilets, carpeted walkways and boarding areas, new ceilings and aircons and hopefully more improvements to come." - rick_carpena

"I’ve been to almost all the airports in the worlds but i just cant compare Manila Airport to those rising 3rd world countries. Seem that NAIA is left out in the DARK age." - TPMAN 199

"If you find a seat be prepared to defend it at all costs!" - Big Tone

"Philippines Airport = not very nice (except for the new terminals of PAL). Overnight in a Manila Airport = NO NO NO" - Seb

"airport employees are the worst money hustlers around." - Steven

"Everywhere everyone asks for bribes. Never offer them anything. Act as if you do not know what they are saying and just walk past them. " - Native Filipino

"This airport disregards passengers comfort. Toilet are inadequate, poorly maintained and with wet floor. Seats at boarding area are cramped and arranged in a way that disregards passengers need for space before being stuck in less spacious airline seats for hours. Food choices are limited and are expensive yet of poor quality." - yogaboy

FEATURED REVIEW

Such a shame. I often visit Manila for business and must say I always enjoy my visit …apart from the bloody airport. Terminal 1 needs to be demolished. It is filthy, too small and WAY past its prime. Lines are insanely long, and I was shocked that I had to pay an airport tax for such a shithole. There were no toilet seats OR RUNNING WATER in the bathrooms! A big bucket with a dipper was by the front door and about four attendants hassled me for a tip. When I asked a security guard where the smoking area was he told me to follow him…and took me out on to the tarmac (so much for security) where he then insisted on a bribe before he let me back into the terminal. How does one say “no” to a security guard with a gun? Last time I was there I saw that the new terminal 3 has opened, but only for Philippine based airlines. Well, I do hope they hurry up and move the rest over there soon and burn terminal 1 to the ground.
