Manila - The most Beautiful City in Asia 1950's to the mid 1970's

Welcome Google visitors! If you're looking for old Manila pictures from the 1950s to the 1970s, you've come to the right place.

You'll see a collection of nostalgic photos when Manila was in its heyday. Just a quick note, I don't take credit for these photos. Somebody just sent them to me and I felt that it was important that I share it in the hopes that other people will see how beautiful Manila was and hopefully help bring it back to its former glory.

Manila when it was the most beautiful city in Asia in the 1950s to 1970s

The photos must have been taken in different years, from the mid 1950's to the mid 1960's, judging from the car models (though some cars are pre 1950'd). Where is O'Henry's Coffee and Donut shop in Plaza Sta Cruz (Plaza near Escolta & Reina Regente)?

Can you recognize the cars? Chevy Bel-air 1958, Simca 1961-62s, Toyopet 1960s, VW Beetle 1960's, early 1960's Mercedez Benz 220...

Don't cry, Pacquiao children tell Manny and Jinkee

Together with countless Filipinos around the globe, the family of Philippine boxing icon and Saranggani Rep. Manny Pacquiao, especially his wife Jinkee, who was at the fight ringside, could not help but cry when he lost by knockout to Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez on Sunday.

"Daddy, Mommy, don't cry," Pacquiao's youngest child, Queenie told her parents during an interview on Unang Hirit on December 10. Queenie along with her siblings Jimuel, Michael, and Princess were interviewed at their home, while their parents were being interviewed in Las Vegas.

Both Pacquiao and his wife, Jinkee, were unable to hold back tears as they recalled the loss.

Jinkee recalled her fear upon seeing her husband unable to get up. "Takot na nanginginig ako na hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari. Kasi nga, first time siya na nakita ko siyang ganun na medyo matagal na nakabangon. Siyempre 'pag boksingero, siyempre buhay yung nakataya sa kanila," Jinkee said.

Asked how she felt about Pacquiao still fighting, Jinkee said her husband already knows how she feels. "Alam naman ni Manny yung sagot ko sa ganyang mga tanong so siya na lang yung ano. Alam na niya kung ano yung hinihiling ko sa kanya," she said.
