Even that I would not consider running and jumping in while still sporting that Tom Ford suit to perfection a piece of cake(and for the record, Daniel Craig's leaner meaner Bond actually grows on me :)
My first stop was Manila. No direct flight except the Philippine Air so the wimp in me made the deadly decision to have gone for the connections from SFO to Honolulu to Guam to Manila. I was a wreck when Makati Shangri la's limo picked me up. The redemption came when visiting the talented Filippino artisans. We were able to maximize creativity in a day packed with meetings(and horrid traffics!)
I could never have enough of the harbor view. Every metropolis I have lived and loved was by the bay like San Francisco and Singapore. It could be subliminal from my past incarnation(Aye aye Captain!), the dramatic interplay between the man made skyline against the nature's body of water just took my breath away.
