Urbanization

0 comments
I remembered the time when I was in Baguio City, around the same time SM City Baguio opened its doors to the public. I saw the small businesses around and its homegrown center malls die slowly. Two years ago, I went back and saw the big change I feared the most. Session Road has become Manila-ized. It killed the Baguio culture instantly.

Recently, Palawan opened its very first Manila-based mall, Robinsons in Puerto Princesa. I think it will have the same fate like Baguio's and other provincial cities where SM opened.
