If you find utility posts with their wires tangled like ponytails branching everywhere like vines cute, then I think you need a check in the mental hospital right now.
Tangled utility posts, either for telecommunications or for electricity, are tangled like this. Not only an eyesore, but also…
Though they should be really safe in times of flooding and earthquakes. I cant imagine the utility costs for this BUT YES-it is true. Manila would look more clean if those cables were buried underground.
The heat and everyone’s sweat make downtown Manila an experience. You’re gonna miss Manila when you see these.
All of the photos are from OTHERJOSEPH whom I have been following for years now. Take a look at his online photoblog for more greatness and before he becomes extra famous.

Puente De Espana
Before Jones bridge, there was Puente de Espana. It was built in 1875 and later replaced by the Jones bridge that we know during the 1930s.
During those years, Manila had elegant street lamps. Today, Manila’s streetlights look like these 1, 2, 3. Most of the ugly streetlights were erected during Atienza’s time and most of the tacky projects were spearheaded by the late mayor. Manila became a theme park during his term.
Manila may be crowded and polluted but it has history - history like no other Philippine city. Its history distinguishes it from other cities in MetroManila and it must be emphasized and instilled in all Manilenos.
Start it with history-inspired streetlights! Hehe!
(I just needed to post this. I’ve been ranting about Manila’s streetlights since 2004.)
Opened in 1939, the Quezon Bridge connects the south and the north banks of the Pasig River. Coming from the south, one must traverse this bridge to go to Quiapo. It was designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel né Bönickhausen - the same guy who designed the Eiffel Tower of Paris.
