    Sights Seen By A First Time Visitor In Manila Who Never Thought Of Seeing Them

    Ive been to Manila a number of times, but I never got the chance to go places. My routine was answering the demands of work and of sleep. Schedule was always not enough. Then one lucky day, one of my colleagues accidentally booked our flight back to Cebu on a Sunday, so we had an extra non-working day which was Saturday. Horrraaaah!

We used to do that for some time until it became a hassle to find flights, bus trips, ferry trips or resorts at a time when everyone else was trying to do the same thing. Or to go to a beach where there was hardly any breathing room.
