It was an uneventful flight to Manila.I was no stranger to the Philippines. I lived here for 4 years. And even after I moved my base from the Philippines to the urbanscape that people called Singapore, I had visited Manila a couple of times. So, nothing exciting awaited me in Manila, save a couple of planned meetups with old friends.Owing to some confusion in my seat booking, Jetstar gave me a free upgrade to an exit seat, which is a big deal when you consider that these seats were 30SGD extra. On a budget flight, that was a lot of savings by itself. Arriving at 9pm, the immigration was smooth, and I spent the first 2 hours of my 12-hour transit wading through the Manila traffic as my taxi inched its way to Makati. And the remaining time was spent catching up with some old friends in one of my favorite restaurants anywhere in the world: that food-temple called Ziggurat, hidden away in the shady neon-lit streets of P.Burgos.
