No matter what the season, some spots in the city reportedly register high temperatures. These places are abuzz with people during the day, but it's been said that things get more romantic when the sun goes down. Based on actual eyewitness accounts, SPOT.ph lists, in no particular order, 10 make-out spots in the city.

Some places make mushy sense, others have left us wondering. Maybe some of the people we surveyed didn't want to give away their secret hot spots. Perhaps, they were too shy. In any case, check out this list and maybe you can help us find other popular spots for General Patronage-rated public displays of affection. By the way, this list is not, in any way, meant to encourage anyone to get purposely amorous in any of these locations. Metro Manila is our beat--but the mushy habits of Metro Manila residents is out of our jurisdiction. We use the term "make out" loosely in this article--it could refer to a whole range of sweet acts, from holding hands to kissing, to...

ARANETA COLISEUM
Nothing says "I love you so much that I want the rest of the world to see us together" better than when you give your date a playful smack on the lips, hold hands, or just sit closely together while you watch basketball games or concerts in this huge coliseum. Located at the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, the Big Dome first opened on March 16, 1960 and has a maximum crowd capacity of 25,000. Clearly, any public display of affection here is meant to make a statement--such as "We have nothing to hide" or "We're official." Couples have been spotted kissing (very cutely) during games.

THE CULTURAL CENTER OF THE PHILIPPINES (CCP) COMPLEX
Watching thought-provoking performances probably puts couples in an exuberant mood. This may be the reason why some of them linger at the CCP Complex. To come down from the cultural high, they take a leisurely stroll in some parts of the 88-hectare area (or all of it if they have the time) and exchange mushy dialogue ("That postmodern play really reminds me that we should treasure our moments together, baby"). Though not necessarily required, smoochy pauses may occur.

    @Dot: Yes, there's a Nayong Pilipino in Clark, but the old one in Pasay still exists.rnrnIn fact, you may call the Nayong Pilipino Foundation Administration at 832-3767 (Office of the Administrator). When we called, the administrator said the park is still open to the public for free though he warned us that it is no longer "maganda." They charge a parking fee for those with vehicles. Joggers and bikers are welcome.rnrnOn top of this information, they confirmed that they don't call it anything else but Nayong Pilipino even in its less-than-stellar state. rnrnThanks for reading SPOT.ph. :)

    Isn't it that Nayong Pilipino is in Clark? That one near the airport still exists pala?

    wala nang nayong pilipino. how do i know? i work for the consortium that bought the land. true, it has been transformed, but to call it nayong pilipino is a misnomer. hindi na ito yung showcase of philippine wonders dati. yung sa facebook, you have been bamboozled.

    Nayong Pilipino per se still exists, though it is no longer as stellar as it used to be. It's been neglected. But when a place is neglected it doesn't mean it no longer exists. The "sosyal" set may not wander into the area now, but, believe me, the "non-sosyal" crowd goes there to canoodle. Why do I know this? I work for an gov't office situated near the Nayong Pilipino compound. My colleagues and I jog in the said location. When the sun goes down and the guards no longer bother to patrol the grounds, very interesting things happen behind bushes.

    the list also has a glaring omission: intramuros. the walled city is still a favorite because of its dark streets and other unlighted nooks and crannies. i believe intramuros should have been here instead of nayong pilipino.

    whoever wrote this list has not been making out around metro manila recently. WALA NA PONG NAYONG PILIPINO. if the writer intended the entry to be a sort of flashback, then the title of the list is misleading. how can a place that's been replaced with casinos and hotels still be part of the top 10? nostalgia? then put it in the copy under the nayong pilipino photo: this used to be the favorite make-out spot of our parents' generation - and most probably i was conceived here.
