Muntinlupa City

Muntinlupa City (pop. 379,310, 2000 Census) is one of the cities and municipalities that comprise Metro Manila in the Philippines. It is bordered on the north by the municipality of Taguig[?], to the northwest by Parañaque City, by Las Piñas City to the west, to the southwest by the municipality of Bacoor[?] in the province of Cavite to the southwest, by the municipality of San Pedro[?], in the province of Laguna, and by Laguna de Bay to the east, the largest lake in the country.

Muntinlupa was once notoriously known as the home of the New Bilibid Prison, where the country's most dangerous criminals languish. Nowadays, it has largely shaken off this negative image to become one of the most progressive cities in the country. Muntinlupa is home to some of the best malls in Metro Manila and is the location of Ayala Alabang Village, the biggest in the country and where many of the wealthiest families live.
