Raffles Manila in Makati

Soon this building will be among the sites to behold in Makati City. Yes, that’s an artist’s rendering of the Raffles Suites & Residences that will soon rise at the corner of Makati and Arnaiz (formerly Pasay Road) Avenues as reported in Philippine Star (June 13, 2008, p. H-3).

The High Street is Not a Street Name

One time, wizheart and I were meeting friends at High Street in Fort Bonifacio Global City. One of his friends, who has not been to the place, suddenly called and asked for directions. He was asking which streets that High Street is intersecting or the building on that street. I figured out that question because I heard wizheart go, “It’s not the name of a street. It’s the name of the place.”

A very clever and apt name to give a high-end shopping and eating complex actually.

Check it out for yourself.
