Yes, another mall.  A lesson to learn in traveling to Manila is to be sure you plan ahead more than a week if you intend to go to any of the toured sites, rides, or scenic vistas.  They get booked fast.  Wednesday this week we thought we'd go out and take advantage of what was suppose to be a beautiful weekend.  However we'd waited too long to actually get a reservation.  As an attraction we thought we'd at least go to the "largest mall in Asia" and at the very least we'd catch another cheap movie at the cinema.

Taxi ride from our region to Manila, a route we've become pretty familiar with, we arrive at what visually is a pretty darn big building.  We get out at the main entrance which is pretty impressive, gaudy but impressive.

While spending several hours walking around the mall, checking out the shops, restraunts, indoor ice rink, and of course the video arcade, we overheard that people gather here on Friday and Saturdays for "the Sunset".  Now while we weren't feeling especially romantic, we at least thought we'd catch the scene.  So heading out the far side of the mall we are greeted with a panaramic view of the bay.. from a perspective we hadn't found yet.  Spectacular boardwalk, more restraunts and some very nice overlooks.  The day was spectacular and we got some pretty amazing shots of the area, the people and of course the bay.

Looking for pictures of the Sunset?
Look for the next Blog Entry called "Manila Sunset!"
It was just too good not to give it, it's own entry...

God Bless
