Las Pinas City: My Home

II am a Manilena where I grew up near St. Scholastica's College, Manila almost my highschool life. Then, when transfered at Las Pinas to celebrate my 18th birthday with a new house at BF Resort Village. One of my blog on October 9, 2006 is my blog of Las Pinas City: My Home Town.

Now, at 2010, I am proud and still am proud to be in my Las Pinas. Enough with the history that you have already read about it since then and at that time I am still in doubt of my English grammar. But, through practice everyday, I can get away with my English, thanks to some of my friends in World Pulse, where they encourage me to continue to write. In other words, I would like to share what is the development in Las Pinas in my own eyes.

From Talon Dos of where is my location is. I enjoy the places here that I seldom go to Ayala, Makati, Ayala Town Center in Alabang or even SM SouthMall, unlike my childhood days. From Casimiro to Manuela or better yet RFC, you will find that you like.

There are plenty of subdivisions and villages like BF Resort Village, Phil-Am Subdivision and Manuela Subdivision known famous along RFC to Casimiro of Alabang-Zapote Road. Also, there are three major gasoline stations here like Shell, Petron and Caltex. You can deposit to any bank either Bacnet or Megalink.

Food trips are very much here. In Casimiro, we have Mercury Drug Store, ChowKing, Red Ribbon, Jolibee and two branches of 7/11 convenient stores aside from the Cecile's Restaurant which is been there as far as I can remember. It is a restaurant owned by the wealthiest man in the city. Enough of the politics, Cecile's Restaurant is one home cooked meal that you would like to dine with your family and friends daily especially for all occasions.

So many stores or shops for your vehicles, salons, food cart trips, just name it. Anyway, when I walked going to Uniwide Sales, you will have those Supermarket 8 or the products that you will see in Baclaran like DVD's, bags, shoes, garments or even ceramics. Also, there is Makro before going to Uniwide Metro Mall.

Walking through, you will see the Sinangag Express or SEX and Shakey's. These establishments are open for 24 hours because it is in front of Perpetual Help Hospital. Now you are in Times.

In Times, there is the Mercury Drug Store open 24 hours a day. Of course, in front of the hospital. There is KFC, McDonalds, Dunkin' Donuts and ChowKing. You will not get lost, Mitsubishi Motors is located there. Libo will be constructed soon.

Walking along, you will find the Las Pinas Municipal Hall where Meralco, Avon and Andok's Litson is near the said Municipal Hall. Now, the new attraction is the SM Center Las Pinas where limited stores are inside like Spaghetti Factory, Razons, Joey Pepperoni, Reyes Barbeque, Reyes' Salon, Let's Face It, CDR-King, Mang Inasal, Ace Hareware, Watsons and HyperMart. Along with the Las Pinas different business establishments outside.

You will not miss StarMall where there are plenty of food trips like Kitaro, Figaro, Pan Cake House, KFC, Pizza Hut, Goldilocks, Pixies, Baliwag, and other garment shops such as Bayo and most of all PureGold Jr. Walking along both fast food chains of McDonalds and Jollibee again, along side of Starbucks, Yellow Cab and Red Ribbon.

The opposite side are Hap Chan Tea House and 22nd Street Comedy Bar. Then, walk further more and you will find RFC where there is a supermarket and Sitcom Comedy Bar. The Manuela mini-mall where another PureGold Jr., Goldilucks, ChowKing, Padi's Point and other business establishments. There is also a school located at the back, Divine Light Academy and STI is along Alabang-Zapote road. Last, but not the least, is the location of of Bioessence and Max's Restaurant.

Thus, along Max's Restaurant until Casimiro. You will enjoy the sites of different food galores from fast food chains to the well known restaurants. Not only that, there are malls, plenty of supermarkets to choose from and there are comedy bars for your night life.

That's the end of my simple tour featuring my hometown which is Las Pinas City. Hope to see you and visit your city.
