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

When arriving back on land, Breanne and I b-lined it to the market where we purchased a backpack, basket ball and some Oreos. We then brought it to the dive shop and presented it to Delton. We told him that we hope his son has a great b-day, and we were touched by his story. It almost brought him to tears and told us that he will never forget us. We are happy to help out where we ...
... also got to eat my vegetables and noodles which arrived with pork even though it wasn't listed on the menu- no one in the Philippines understands the concept of being vegetarian.
Afterwards I went back to the hostel and met a fellow Edmontonian named Marc, and a French girl named Ymane.
Three minutes after meeting them they asked "hey want to climb a volcano tomorrow?"
to which I instantly replied- "Yes!"
... with getting it was that I will not likely ever spend a good chunk of my own money to try crusted sea bass. However, this meal was covered, and I'm generally a cheap corporate date, so it seemed like a reasonable time to give it a go. All in all, it was decent. Fish is growing on me a little (I branched out and tried some salmon at the TGIFriday's the other night. It's no chicken, but it's not terrible.)
Being in a ...
... 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 ...
