The Philippines and neighboring region of Southeast Asia and the Pacific have undergone massive development over the last 35 years. Two childhood friends record their observations of how life has changed since their high school days at Maryknoll in the early 1970’s.
These two writers decided they needed to write down their observations of the few things that they remembered growing up, and how it had evolved. The blog has no agenda— it developed “organically,” when these two friends got together and started discussing how the urban area of Metro-Manila changed from a collection of villages, and small towns to what is in the present tense—A megalopolis! — They didn’t have a vision in their early years growing up in Quezon City, the capital of the Philippines, of what would happen or could they have predicted that there would be a region called, “Metro-Manila” with a growing population of more than 10 million occupants. They witnessed how the Metropolis would sprawl into the neighboring provinces of the CALABARZON—Cavite, Laguna, Bulacan, and Rizal and transform the rural countryside into urban cities.
Eve and Betty also write about the ordinary encounters they have living in Metro-Manila, Philippines. Topics come at random, from the the observations of their daily lives.
Join Betty, a former editor of a womans magazine, and Mary Eve , an organic farmer, and manager of a real estate business, as they venture out with renewed excitement at living one day at a time in their corner of the world!
