imageTokyo, Japan –  Noting that Metro Manila’s traffic, infrastructure and housing problems can no longer be solved by the Philippines’ National Capital Region, Japan has offered to buy Metro Manila for $57 Billion.

The Japanese government, acting on a report by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), made the offer to Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada and Makati City Mayor Junjun Binay. By purchasing Metro Manila, Japan hopes to implement JICA’s “Dream Plan” to solve once and for all Metro Manila’s decades-old woes.

The dream plan seeks to achieve by 2030, the five “No’s” considered to be the ultimate key to the revival of the dying metropolis : no traffic congestion, no excessive transport cost burden for low-income groups, no households living in high hazard risk areas, no barriers for seamless mobility of people and no air pollution.

Under the purchase proposal, Metro Manila will become a Prefecture of Japan and both the local and national governments  of the Philippines will totally give up ownership and control of Metro Manila which consists of 17 cities and towns.

The only remaining obstacle to the proposed purchase is to determine how the $57 Billion will be divided among Philippine President Noynoy Aquino, Estrada, Binay and the rest of the mayors of the cities and towns of the metropolis.




  1. Technically, the money shouldnt be divided among the officials since they dont own Metro Manila. If ever that is IF such event preceeded the money should be divided for the development of tye entire nation not by corrupt individuals.. But such thing need not to be discussed. Its ridiculous. Our ancestors fought against the invaders till to the last drop of their blood and here we are planning to sell the land they protected. The idea is really and totally ridiculous. Philippines is not a real estate that is being sold to other countries. -_-


    1. well said… (y) but, don’t take it too seriously, its just a satire, the intention of the writer is nothing but to call the attention of anybody responsible for a certain or a given issue. Satire is the use of ridicule, irony, etc, to create such an effect 🙂 Try mong manood ng Satirical Play for better understanding of what this literary piece about.
