:: 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.
