Manila hit me baby one more time


Mall of Asia the biggest mall on the night they took me out for dinnerBlue marlin at Havana

Fried kangkong-battered water colvucolus

                                                                                        The atendees
It's been 8 years since the last time I visited  Manila -Intramuros , Makati  and all it's glory.I know, I know! despite what people said about Manila ...about it's bad air quality which , the  traffic, the  pick up bars, the street kids and squatters to which  I agrees.But these  are forgotten when I met beautiful smiles  and friendliness of its's people. I was there carrying Orved's mission to  our local distibutor my host,  FABTECH in Manila.I am grateful to have found  work associates who cares for me and my well  being ,business or otherwise, I still think I met very good people in the Philippines the training session went great, my ex boss  whom I look up to Chef Adam  came with  all his moral support and  the guests who came  some  of them added me on facebook, thanks a lot :).

People at new World Makati which is a good hotel with good people  treated me like a princess ,  if you plan to visit Manila and decide to stay there , (though for those  hi tech travellers I would not suggest this hotel as it does not have free wi fi or Ipod console  BUT for great service staffs YES , I definitely gives them 5 out of 5 stars.)it is in front of the  greenbelt which is an upmarket   shopping , and dining  mall ,  you can find just anything there , I don't find  the prices are any cheaper  than my country's so I decided to give shopping a skip.
Eat wise- I enjoyed Blue Marlin at Havana in green belt , the charcoal grilled fish  combined with roasted  peppers and potatoes are just what I need after a long day.Prior to going to manila all of my friends   who used to work  there told me to go to this place and I am glad I did.felix the guy who served me was not only good looking but gave me  great travel advice and  food suggestions too.
other than that I spent few hours on my own on my final night in Manila therefore I explored greenbelt to the fullest- I truly recommend Spicy fingers for  music and it's neighbour Nuovo  for a  beautiful Mixologist called Janet, I got her picture here with me  and with Rick who is Nuovo's regular customer.



I only  got to spent the night not working as I am always  in a meeting or giving talks, nevertheless I made use of all my spare time and it was good.




Before I go this was what I ate-Butterfish which is Philippines national fish

Salamat!see you again real soon!

This entry is dedicated to  my beloved friends and precious people in my life , you know who you are
Across the continent and borders....Here's for you.

Certain people reminds me of everything that is pleasant like  the colour pink,chocolate pudding,fishing etc.
I wish  certain things would be different and as an adult I succumbed to the fact that there are things in life  that are beyond our control but enough whining and  sobbing for me..It's 2010! , 2009 was  a great year for me but life ain't got  any rewind button.To People I miss and wants to see so dearly,Love means we can never be apart.
You are the angel who sprinkled the dust of happiness  in my life.Thank You :)

                     An unexpected love.....
An unforgettable twist in my life.
                 I love you and I always will.

Let's live in each other's heart?  you bet!  :) I miss you Suzanne
