Nothing feels worse than the cringe of having lack of sleep. I’m not sure if it’s just me still adjusting to the lifestyle of Manila, or it’s just me in general, but this week has been quite the struggle already. The fact that I’m keeping myself active is the most important thing. Haha I’ll admit it, I’m not the early morning type when it comes to waking up 7am to go to work, as I honestly find myself to be most productive and alert at night time. So for the first time when I made the effort to go to Jing Monis Salon in preparation for a long day, I was well and truly taken by surprised the moment I stepped foot on the MRT Train. It was trippy in a way. Everyone was well-dressed in their corporate attire, people flashing out their iPhone 5’s checking Instagram and I even counted more than a handful of foreigners using the train. I guess I just found it ironic that Manila is not only just a party town I took it to be when I first arrived.
Well believe it or not, I ended up having a great chat with my new friend Bryan who’s also captured in today’s post... Believe it or not, we’re both Australian-Filipinos from the same city back home, with the same mutual friends! So we definitely kicked it off pretty well. Bryan’s here till July so I’ll definitely make the effort to show him around help make the most of his time. The lucky guy's moving to the Fort so I’m looking forward to livin’ it up on his huge penthouse balcony from what I’ve envisioned through our conversation... Just shows you what surprises might come in store when you try something different. Lesson learnt.
