After 28 hours of travel, I am finally in Manila.

Valentine’s weekend is in full swing here and made Manila traffic even worse than normal!

As I sit at the bar with my sleep aid, San Miguel beer at arms reach, a 20 something girl in a skin tight red dress and 5 inch heels sings Rihanna “We Found Love in a Hopeless Place” to all the married couples, lovers and one, tired, bald white guy at the end of the bar.

Although I don’t know if I will find love in a hopeless place, on this Valentine’s Day, I am reminded of Plato’s famous quote… “He was a wise man that invented beer.” No truer words were ever spoken!
