The term Maynila was taken from a flower called "maynilad" that used to grow alongside the Pasig River, the body of water that cuts through the city. So, this word play as a title is also a metaphor referring to either of the two ladies, Azun and Ada. They are both beautiful but they are poor so they used their faces and bodies to survive in the dirt, squalor and grime of the city. So, the book contains many explicit sex scenes.

However, the writing is flawless except for having that "old" feel and the repeated, too-much repeated, confession of love by the male characters: "Mahal kita, Azun. The male characters normally say this when they want to have sex with the ladies so I almost puked and not believed them. It is like saying ohhhs and ahhhs when one climaxes during sex. The line in the dialogues becomes a blur and meaningless.

I guess, most people say "I love you" or actually it should sound like "I lab yu" or "Lab kita. This could be the time when many Filipinos were not happy with the performance of the government by ex-President Marcos and his wife, Imelda so media - writers and moviemakers - used their medium to show their displeasure with how things were going on.

So, they magnified the negatives to show to the world how bad was the situation in Manila, the capital of the country. Reading this book, because of how poor the people were, could actually give you a nightmare. That your pension plan or retirement money will not disappear like a smoke like what happened in Enron. Very sad yet beautiful writing. A gem in the Filipino literature. Thank you, Ayban for lending me this book!
