The room we had was large and had OK decor although it could do with a lick of paint. We took the double room without ac for 700 pesos which as we have traveled many countries in Asia is by no means cheap by backpacker standards and the shower had no water coming out, we were told that the tank can not cope with all the people having showers and the tank was empty, concidering that we paid for onsuite bathroom I would suggest that water in the onsuite was a basic requirement. I will say this was one of the best budget places in Pasay so if you are coming here be warned, its hot and humid unless you pay more for AC. I want to add that we ordered a taxi off the reception the day before we left and when it was meant to pick us up they told us that they could not go to the airport because of the colour codeing!!!! I would not stay here again

... and fish for sale. Tables of fish, smelly fish. After mass we took a tricycle back to where we were staying. Our driver had two young sons that rode on the bike with him. His sons were very cute and of course my dad was chatting them up along the way. If you know my dad he loves kids. That night we took a bus to Cebu city to stay the night before flying to Puerto Princessa. After finding a place to stay in Cebu we ventured the streets. What we saw was very shocking and sad.

... friend, took us to his friends bar.
Fabion has been to the Philippines a few times and took us (myself, Lucy (british) and Veronika) under his wing a little.
The bar was made of bamboo and decorated with local art- very island vibe.
There was live music, a guy named Noy in a cowboy hat singing folk/classic rock hits.
The second act was apparently the best guitar player in Manila, and played a ...
... it, an unexpected sound in a higher end hotel. I like it because it causes me to imagine that the elevators are manually moved up and down with chains by under-dwellers like morlocks or the Doozers from Fraggle Rock or that it is haunted by some sort of greedy elevator tycoon ala Marley and Marley.
The next sign contains fire escape instructions next to the elevators where I work. Dig on the overly tall European casually walking down the stairs ...
... to go to Tagaytay (3hour bus ride) to the centre to talk to the girls. Counselling sessions were conducted (2hours EACH!) and they were in Tagalog!!! My reading of body language has become finally tuned;) In the end, a great result, both girls realised they were better to make the most of the opportunity they have to pursue their studies rather than head back to the streets (or for one girl- to the cemetery where her mother lives in a squatter style arrangement between the ...
... you feel the weight of the sky on your head. Your first breath is sticky and sweet filling your lungs with the presence of the island. The nosy is loud and confusing. The sound of the street market are filled with the echoes of large poor families and the common tongue. The malls are floors on top of more floors, bursting with the sounds of small rich families and scattered conversations in English and ...
