Gil Puyat Avenue is an arterial road that goes from EDSA through Makati and Pasay City to Roxas Boulevard. While the western stretch is a typical business district street, the eastern stretch awaits you with the chaotic flair that is characteristic for Metro Manila.
Slowly but steady Makati is becoming a bit more environmental-friendly. Around the same time as a city-wide ban on plastic-bags was implemented in 2013, the first low-emission hybrid buses have entered the streets. The Green Frog Hybrid Bus runs simultaneously on a diesel and an electric engine. This leads to less noise and 80 percent less exhaust emission, according to the operating company. Good news for the ever polluted Megacity Metro Manila.
October was all about life in the big city, from traffic to family celebrations and volunteer work.
