Manila Street in Singapore

Manila Street in Singapore

I was surprised when my visit to Singapore when I chanced upon a street named after the Philippine capital. The nearest landmark to Manila street is Bugis village located along Victoria street.

I don't know the history behind the naming of the street. But Philippines and Singapore have shared many things in common. Besides a strong Chinese influence in both cultures, Singapore is host to about 160,000 thousand Filipinos working as professionals and household workers.
