Shooting random people on the streets of Malate Manila Philippines. The name Malate is believed to be derived from a corruption of the Tagalog word maalat ("salty"). Legends are known that when a Spanish man asked a woman about the name of the place, the lady's little brother, tasted salt, shouted "Maalat, Ate!" ("Sister, it is salty!"). The Spanish man misheard it and used the words as the place's name.
A busy, down-to-earth area, Malate draws crowds to lively Manila Baywalk, a long promenade known for its sunset views across Manila Bay. The Cultural Center of the Philippines stages big-name theater and orchestral performances, while contemporary Filipino art is the focus at the Metropolitan Museum. Traditional local eateries, live-music hangouts, and relaxed neighborhood bars cluster around Remedios Circle.
