Where Manila Got its Name[edit]

Manila comes from the word Maynila which so much sounds like chinese word Mai is to buy ni is you and la is an expression used by overseas chinese like in Singapore.Would you buy lah or where are you going lah. so this could be the nearest truth about Manila as center of buying and commerce for early chinese.Mai ni lah or ni mai lah.--121.54.58.136 (talk) 08:01, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Massacre of 1603 - questions[edit]

Hi, it would be very interesting to have a good and reliable text about the massacre of 1603 where more than 20,000 Chinese were allegedly slaughtered by the Spaniards. There are different indications in the Internet claiming that

  • there was a rebellion of the Chinese

(Payer: http://www.payer.de/hbiweltweit/weltw43.html)

or

  • there was a visit of Ming Mandarins and the Spaniards only reacted with fear and aggression.

(a forum: http://www.chinahistoryforum.com/topic/1393-massacre-and-slaughter-of-the-overseas-chinese/)

So, what is right? Are there sources? How reliable are they? Was there a Chinese war ship? Were the Ming Mandarins legally on the Philippines or not? Was there one single Chinese shot? How the dead bodies were buried? This would be interesting.

Manila's southern border...[edit]

...isn't actually at Vicente Sotto street. It's a straight line from the western end of Zobel Roxas Street to the Manila Bay coast near where Fernando Ma. Guerrero St. ends. That puts almost all of the buildings in the CCP complex at Pasay (with the fountain at the straddling border itself), while those very near to the coast, such as Harbour Square, as within Manila. That means the "Tourism" section has to be edited to reflect this; Coconut Palace is in Pasay. Interestingly, the main building also straddles the border but has a Pasay address. –HTD 16:45, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Sons and daughters of the town[edit]

Sons and daughters of the town is an interesting theme. You can find it very often in articles about towns. So I can't understand why my edit was removed without grounds.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 07:18, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
