Kalayaan is still very much Kalayaan according to the signposts when I rode down it a couple of days back!

Senator Gil Puyat used to be called Buendia, and in fact everyone knows it as that. I use the old name in taxis so that the driver knows I've been around for a while.

Maybe it should have an alternate_name tag as Buendia? Would that show up on searches though? Otherwise pretty useless. I do wish they'd stop changing road names by the way. Just leave them alone and name a new road after yourself!
