    I once lived there in Pasay City (2320 R.F. Mateo St, Pasay City MM 1300), and I found out that that City became progressive! The Cuneta Astrodome, located at F.B. Harrison St cor Derham Rd, is a very convenient place to watch the PBA Basketball Games, music concerts, and other events. This city is a very good place for traveling, hotel booking, and shopping. More power to Mayor Calixto and to his City staff; and To the people of Pasay City! Mabuhay!!
