A Dutch in Villa Escudero

A colleague of ours from the Netherlands office visited Manila last Friday and Saturday. To let him experience a taste of the Manila night life we took him to Hard Rock cafĂ© for dinner and to watch Side A. He was impressed (we were too!) by Side A’s performance. The next day we took him to Villa Escudero for a glimpse of the Filipino culture. Here are some pictures:

Dyesebel?

On our way back to the metro we showed him the 3rd biggest mall in the world - SM Mall of Asia, and he was just very lucky because we were able to watch the last day of the World Pyro Olympics. It amazing and really spectacular! Last year I was able to witness this event too but this year we had nice seats at Eskimo Bob and we were watching it while dining.

Here are some videos taken from last Friday’s fireworks display:

Nice noh?

Will try to upload more videos soon. June na, in 29 days it's the mid year already. 2009 na in 6 months... I'll be in my late 20s and what else? Let the countdown begin ;) Happy Monday!
