:: Good Friday in Makati ::


:: Good Friday in Makati ::



Upon arrival at Makati International Airport, 
I was informed that I would be staying at Shangri-La Makati
Instead of Grand Hyatt Casino, as originally planned.
It turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Makati district was posh, modern and relatively traffic-free,
Thanks to the Manilans, who must have left for their hometowns 
For the long Holy weekend. 
As this was a working trip, I hardly had the time to
Explore Manila, less Greenbelt 1 to 4, 
and Ayala Mall, which was smacked right in front of the hotel.
With only half an hour of leisure time,
I made a beeline for BENCH.
And of course, not forgetting
My favourite Hulo Hulo from Chow King.
Yummy!!!

Ever since I stopped driving, and joined NEC Asia, I've been lugging my Versa 6300. 
My Versa's a gift from the company, and the nifty Core Duo is my trustworthy sidekick, 
Following me wherever I go. 
I like the idea of having a mobile office on-the-go. 
All I need to do it so fire up my Versa, and connect it to my MaxMobile-boosted Viewty, 
And my Outlook, Firefox, etc can be easily accessible, at the touch of a button. 
I avoid MSN, however, as it takes up too much of my attention. 
Nevertheless, I have been having difficulty locating power points in our urban jungle. 
Forget about Burger King or KFC, or even Macs, unless its a Mac Cafe. 
Even right now, as I sit in Pacific Coffee Company in the Red Dot Museum and 
Connected to the internet highway, I had to discreetly unplug the socket off the 
Bulbous antique table lamp and insert my Versa power plug instead. 

Shhh.
