Philippines. National Capital Region. Manila. Paradise village. Childreen feet, flip-flops sandals and plactic war toys. Paradise village has a population of 15'000 people and is a part of Barangay Tonsuya situated on Lettre Road in Malabon. Manila is part of the National Capital Region (NCR) on Luzon island. Manila is the capital of the Philippines and one of the sixteen cities that comprise Metro Manila. Metro Manila is the most populous metropolitan area in the Philippines. Flip-flops, zoris, Hawaii chappal, thongs, Japanese sandals, or jandals are an open type of outdoor footwear, consisting of a flat sole held loosely on the foot by a Y-shaped strap, like a thin thong, that passes between the first (big) and second toes and around either side of the foot. Flip-flops may also be held to the foot with a single strap over the front of the foot rather than a thong. They are called 'Flip-flops' because of the noise they make, slapping against the heel, while walking. © 1999 Didier Ruef
