When I was in grade school, I remember my parents bringing us to Makati City. As a kid, the tall buildings look taller, and everything is just so big and amazing. Fast forward to now, Makati is a place I go to work every day for the past two years with hundreds even thousands of other Filipinos.

SeeQC: Quezon City Travel Guide

This app is in progress, so your feedback is very much welcome.
