Visit to a Philippine tradition

I am leaving Corregidor with a group of 5 more day trippers and when we get to the harbor of Manila we need to figure out what to do - we could of course just go home - but we need an extra meal - I don’t get how people here can eat 5-6 times a day without looking like Americans?

 

We find a place to eat - the traditional eating house of Jollibee’s. Believe it or not - it is my first visit to this Philippines legend which is keeping McDonalds at bay in the country. We go in - and guess what they do have rice at this place - how can you get a meal and not have rice - it would be unnatural.

 

After the afternoon meal I start to walk a bit around the area to localize the Coconut Palace which is closed this time of the day. But now I know where it is for later. I guess I might as well walk back to Malate - of course it is time for the afternoon thunder shower just as I am walking - argh.

 

It is not like there is a lot of time for sightseeing because of the shower but I still get to go down and see the sunset - not that there is that much of a sunset given it is overcast - but still there is a bit and you can watch the lights coming on down at Roxas Avenue.
