Front desk service somewhat indifferent. Internet access over $6 an hour. Internet Cafe nearby $2/hour. Although it is quite central, would not stay there again.

... over a fountain/pond, but it won't upload because of the hotel's poor signal. Might try again later. Manila stands in stark contrast to Taipei, as will likely be the case for all of the other countries I'll be visiting on this trip, except perhaps Brunei. With a population between 20 and 25 million (depending on how it's counted), Manila is far bigger in size than Taipei.

During our stay in the park we were shown a diorama of Jose Rizal's last days alive and his execution. We then visited the Hotel Manila, as famous as the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in its day. We briefly wandered around the ornate interior. Everybody was so friendly and welcoming. Perhaps ...
After an eventful few days on Apo Island, we headed on to our next destination for the New Year celebrations. A place that has been voted one of the best beaches in the world and what did we get.... 5 days of pretty ****** weather... great! Unfortunately we couldn't fly directly to Caticlan (for Boracay) so we had to boom two flights and go via Cebu. On the final leg we did a loop around Boracay and we could see from the sky why it was one of the best beaches. ...
