A day or two in Manila...

I see the clouds turns a little darker and dense, I know for sure I am near Manila and any time soon we will be descending. I am greatly amazed by Manila's tall buildings, wide roads, night lights, and especially malls! Here I am again, and my schedules are tight. With a limited time; considering I need to give 30 minutes travel time to get to the place- my first need-to-go-and-see is the blogger EB. This is probably one of the reason I was so excited for my Manila trip.

This is my first time meeting this fellas and tell you we were talking like we knew every one since birth...chos! They are all so fun.
Ahem....
Opps! Let me try to remember everyone..Haha Please forgive me if I may miss anyone. From left. Senyor Iskwater, Cheenee, Meow, Kuya Mar, Me, Jun, Kulapitot, and Pao Kun. Did I get that correctly?
Your highness. The king Archieviner.
From left: Kulapitot, Kuya Mar, Daddy Jay, Pao Kun, Bagotilyo, Rix, and Meow.
From left again: Senyor Iskwater, Arline of The Pink Line, Cheenee, Axl and Jun on that far end.
They sold me this pin. It is sticking on my back pack now. I love it. Thanks for selling it to me, Senyor...harhar! Now, I can put the banner on my blog for PBO right?...hehe
It took them hours to finish cutting this flyer out. Thanks flyer, without you keeping them busy, they might have been bored and ends up eating for hours waiting for everyone...:)

I also got a key chain which is as well hanging proudly on my back pack, and the cute bottle opener with a magnet on our refrigerator from Daddy Jay, thanks a bunch. Oh! I almost forgot I loved the Ferrero Rochers chocolate. I was overwhelmed with the thought that I actually saw them personally, they are indeed a group of over the top fun, intelligent, opinionated, and beyond gorgeous people...:) I would also like to apologize for not bringing a pasalubong, I got so busy and lazy before the flight...hehe I promise to bring Silvanas the next time we have EB like this...:) So the conference went on, and I have blogged about it already. I also got to see my childhood friend who treat me at Vikings in MOA. I mus tell you guys that this is by far the best buffet I have ever been. I love sea foods, and they have everything! Like literally everything you can think of. From street foods, to steamed vegetables, pasta, pizzas, salads, Chinese and Japanese cuisine, and not to mention the best Filipino Cuisine there is. The Patatim is sweet.

My childhood friend from the Left: Ron, Me, and my best friend's little brother Jason. We have not seen each other in 9 years. I really missed him...:( How I wish I can come to Cavite with him and spend the night with his family, but I can't really...:( There has been a lot to say and to talk about, but I think we can wait for the next meet up..:S


Their Maki taste wonderful. Clearly it does.
The refreshing line of fruit juices.
The over flowing dessert table is to die for! I love to taste everything, it just wouldn't fit in my stomach.
White chocolates, glittered cake- the opera cake gave me a little confusion on the taste, not sure what it wants to have you taste either the chocolate filling or the caramel. Maybe that is why it is called opera cake. Moose cakes- perfect delight!
You can make your own Halo-halo, you can also make your own crepe on the other side.
Grilled Hungarian Sausage, hotdogs, pork, chicken wings, drumsticks, liver, gizzards, etc.
Shrimps and Prawns are on this corner. They also have baked Talaba that I loved so much. I ate a bunch...burp!
The beer is included on that unlimited label. Ron and Jason stayed there and enjoyed the best of unli beer. Weekends are at P1000 and P800 for weekdays. It is a must try and must go back place. Just a piece of advice, please do a reservation. You may as well visit their site for a better look on their food. Promise it taste wonderful as it looks.

I have to leave them because my friends are waiting for me at Star City. I was hesitant to go because I was so full, and I'm afraid of throwing up on those rides, but I wouldn't miss my roller coaster ride. I love buhis buhay rides by the way.

I was screaming so hard and holding my breath the whole ride. I was afraid of throwing up. The food I have on Vikings are too delightful to be wasted...haha I repeatedly took 3 rides...I couldn't get enough of it..:)


Got freaked out by The Mummy horror chamber.
Viking ride. I got dizzy with this ride..I wouldn't want to do it again...:(

The bump cars were one of the best.

Good that I wore a thong sandals. I was so scared getting my self soaked on that water ride, but glad I wasn't....:)

I need to meet Ron again, as I promised to go back to MOA and spend a little more time with him. The resto closed at around 10:00 PM, and it's nearly 11:00 PM so we meet up again at the Harbour Square just a block away from Star City to have coffee at Krispy Kreme.

Ron talked about his travel abroad and gave me some tips on where to go, what to eat, on each Asian country he has been to. He by the way traveled the entire Asia. I was so listening to him hard.
We walked and spent some time at the dock. We were amazed by the city lights and the shadow it is creating on the sea. It was a perfect place to just talk, but we need to call it a night...:( He promised to visit me one day in Dumaguete and he wants me to take him to the places I have been mentioning on my blog. He is as well grateful to those travel bloggers because he pointed out that travel blogs are a tremendous help when you are traveling.

I still have a lot to say and a lot of photos, but I would have to cut this post short as I still have the part 2, and 3 for my Manila trip. So hang on you guys! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and for the comments, I am truly grateful. Till my next city lights post...xoxo!
