Beyond the Makati business district, beyond the tall buildings and the big crowds of people, the untiring noise from the busy streets, is a side of this city only a few individuals have seen. Here, life is a little slow-paced. It is someplace where the busy citizen has a bit of time to himself, a moment to relish the morning’s sunshine or the soothing aroma of his cup of coffee upon waking up. This is a place where a neighbor’s face is a tad more familiar and where almost everyone offers a greeting or a smile to a well-meaning stranger. And while the rest of the city has turned to the latest devices and novelties, this side of Makati has remained true to its soul. Along Chino Roces Ave. are numerous art galleries, studios and advertising offices that make of the creative, passionate side of Makati.
