I’m sure it is very much alive…just not here, where I’m from.
These photos were taken a few years ago, while I was still living in Manila. I had been told that in my hometown, they still had those machines that printed from film negatives.
Ironically, they closed down a year before I got back, and the only ones in our area was in a photography shop in Colon area in Cebu.
(Currently looking at places online…will update soonest!)
