The Chinese New Year holiday gave me a chance to revisit the city of Manila, particularly Chinatown and the surrounding area.  But first, I had to see what the recent fuzz is with Manila Bay.  Here’s by brief adventure.

My Halloween Weekend

The Halloween long weekend finally gave me some chance to have some much needed sleep.  I didn’t go out of town as many people may have done, but I dedicated a day to do some long easy run around Manila.

Visita Iglesia 2013
