The Manila Baywalk.
Before heading there, I just want to show you this tree of our neighbor which is being lit by the morning sunrise in the summer. I find the colors golden and inspiring me to go out and get some sun.
I don't have a single out of town trip this summer and planned to make good use of this opportunity.
It contained various images of Manila during that decade which I find pretty impressive due to the orderliness of the city.
Here's one image I took from the set which looks to be Roxas boulevard. I'm confident you are impressed how beautiful this was. Look at the American cars parked there, classy.
The water is murky with plenty of refuse and non-biodegradable items.
This imagery is just adjacent the US Embassy which is pretty embarrassing.

These men looks to be fishing hobbyists. It's surely a slow and relaxing hobby if you ask me.
This is the popular pedestrian crossing in the location where I've seen numerous in TV advertisements. It's also leads to the fountain and Malate Church.
Be careful while crossing sine there are no traffic lights to aid the pedestrians. I took my time waiting there until the road is clear which allowed me to capture these images.
I'm pretty satisfied and I need to get back to my sister as she could have been waiting for me.
It is to refrain from using any type of camera pointing near the US Embassy as you would be apprehended by police officers in the area. You will not be able to see them as their visibility is based on various CCTV cameras.
I was approached by a police officer wearing a slipper and shoe at the same time. He asked me politely if he can view the photos in my camera to which I'm very aware this is heading to. I made a small argument that the anything visible with the naked eye in public can be taken a photo of, but, he was persistent that I need to delete photos that includes parts of the US embassy. To make our conversation short, I gave in and deleted some photos he believes that needs be deleted.
After the police officer left, I made friends with a metro aide, the one who sweeps the streets clean, who went to me to talk about the incident. Our conversation immediately started talking about her personal life and her experiences with foreigners meeting and dating. It was interesting though but was cut by her co-workers coming in, as it was actually their break time in the morning. I had an experience that is unusual and will be memorable. I'm sure you will too when you have a camera taking photos in the street.
It's based on a trend in Manila which came from Taiwan, the Milk Teas.
These jellies is one of a kind that I have tried and is good drinking experience that you have to try.
To your right is the colorful and creatively done wall.
To my senses, the green stuff is similar to 7-11's Slurpee only a bit smoother and sweeter but the jellies made up for it so I was able to finish this huge serving of sugary drink. I could describe how the pearls are but I suggest trying it yourself.
Reviews from various bloggers share that food is not something the store does best which my sister has also told me. Anyways, if you're a fan of such drinks and want to try something different, then go for it as Cobo is not simply a copycat of those already in the market.
