PhotobucketMagician and college teacher Professor Al Leonidas is in a writing mood these days.

Here’s another message he dropped in my mailbox.  He tips an excellent way to go around the asphalt jungle of Metro Manila without getting lost in its maze of traffic-choked streets.

I would like to endorse the use of Citiatlas Metro Manila Maps for our magicians.

This book  on Metro Manila Citiatlas is a vital tool for our magicians in locating the area, streets of their client.

It is available National Bookstore.  I have a publisher contact of the Citiatlas perhaps they can give us discounts.

I used the book and helped me locating the place of a client.



PhotobucketI have been using the Metro Manila Citiatlas for eons now.  It was so long ago when I picked my first copy at the National Book Store I forgot when it was. I’m now on my second copy, which has become tattered from constant use.

I swear by its usefulness.  In case you didn’t notice, Metro Manila is a labyrinth of streets, a great number of which is unmarked.  The Metropolis is also so large there are many places I have not gone to— strange streets and out-of-the-ordinary-route places.

However, with the help of the Citiatlas, even the most obscure streets, remote subdivisions and unfamiliar buildings are a cinch to find. PhotobucketHeavens know how many times it saved us from getting lost by pointing us  in the right direction, so we could arrive at the party just in time for our performances.  It is a book worth every centavo of the small investment you make to own it.

If you are a magician darting from one place of the Metropolis to another to show up to your gigs, then you will find the Citiatlas a great tool to have by your side as you drive around the mega city.

There are two types of copy available. One is the pocket edition (around P500) and the other is a book edition (around P800).  I have the book edition for a couple of years now. It has served me well over the years—but I told you that already.

PhotobucketHere’s the blurb on its website:

  • 125 pages of full color maps of Metro Manila
  • 74 pages of comprehensive index to quickly show you how to get to your destination
  • GPS referenced
  • Highly detailed to easily navigate Metro Manila’s 16 cities and municipality
    (Caloocan, Las Pinas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Manila, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Paranaque, Pasay, Pasig, Pateros, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, Valenzuela)
  • Over 20,000 streets
  • Exact location of more than 25,000 entries including subdivisions, buildings, bridges, churches, hospitals, hotels, schools, malls
  • Color-coded city and municipal boundaries
  • One-way street indicators
  • Contains Makati and Ortigas business districts, Bonifacio Global City, with complete building directories

I’d swear under oath those claims are accurate.

Stay magical,
