Metropolitan Cities in Southeast Asia
I searched for Metropolitan’s meaning in the internet, several explanations came out.Of, relating to, or characteristic of a major city. A citizen of a metropolis, especially one who displays urbane characteristics, attitudes, and values.
(Sociology) of or characteristic of a metropolis. (Social Science / Human Geography) constituting a city and its suburbs the metropolitan area are some explanation I found in the internet about Metropolitan.
In my own definition, Metropolitan means Modernized. Metropolitan means city, place where in you can find buildings, a place wherein there are a lot of people, a place of establishments, employment. In the Philippines for example is the Metro Manila or the Metropolitan Manila.
Metropolitan Manila is composed of the City of Manila and the sorroundings cities. The region is the political, economic, social, cultural, educational center of the Philippines. As proclaimed by the Presidential Decree No 940, Metropolitan Manila as a whole is the Philippines’ seat of government while the City of Manila is the capital. The largest city in the metropolis is the Quezon City, while the largest business district is the Makati Central Business District.
Metropolitan is a place where a lot of people is aiming to go to, or probably a place to live or work into. As compare to the provinces, there are ofcourse advantages and disadvantages for those two. Since in Metropolitan we can find more jobs or should I say the salary is higher as compared to the salary in the Province.
But on the other side of the coin, in fairness to the province, in metropolitan there are a lot of things to consider. In finding jobs, it is not easy to find one since there are a lot of competitions when it comes to a person’s credential. It is also said that in Metropolitan means pollution, since there are a lot of cars, people, and establishments that can cause pollutions too.
Well for me, as a normal citizen, if I could get to choose, I still chose to work in Metropolitan but live in the Province. I believe that Metropolitan has been part of people’s live since I am working in Makati, a Metropolitan area, and I have house in Bulacan, which is a Province.
