The Perfect Storm of Creativity and Crazy
Manila’s a megacity where you can cook up your next bright idea over drinks and live indie music — where ideas mingle, date and procreate, giving birth to groundbreaking insights that are truly meaningful. They say that you need to be at least a little bit crazy to be creative. Well, Manila gives us enough reasons to be more than a little crazy. We’re a city brimming with grit, resilience and authenticity, and we’re also the Selfie Capital of the World. And when you put your phone down, you’ll witness taxi drivers launch into song in the midst of a crazy traffic jam or spot police officers dancing in the middle of the street while directing traffic. Manila can crack you up even when it’s driving you crazy — it’s the perfect place for resourcefulness, creativity, humor and truly adaptive living (and not just marketing).
