This is why I have faith in the Filipino. They would and could find ways to earn a living in any circumstance.
Actually, the lady here is hitting two birds with one stone: earning a living and helping out fellow Filipinos, what with the increasing incidence of hypertension and cardiac arrest in the country.

Binondo was an experience for me. I was there last ages ago, but the place seemed to have frozen time. It was still the same Binondo I had in mind.
I expected a lazy Saturday without much business going on there. But I was wrong. It was business as usual for the people there. Chinese restos are busy feeding people, and we passed by a rather decrepit barber shop, but it had many customers inside.
I even texted Wizheart and said, “it’s a bustling town!”
Take a look at these photos:

My colleagues and I went to Ortigas Center yesterday for a meeting. The meeting at 11am went on till 2:00pm, and so by the time the meeting ended we were already hungry and spent.
As we stepped into a blinding afternoon sunlight, we didn’t have much energy to look for a place to eat really, and had to settle for the nearest cafe we found: Cafe 88 Degrees.
To our surprise we found a cozy place with yummy-looking food!
Each of us ordered a combo meal: spicy squid rings, spicy pork, and chicken. Each meal came with rice and a brownie cube, and a choice of Milk Tea, Green Tea or (my bad, forgot the other one). I ordered a strawberry shake instead of the teas.
Since I was too hungry to hear the waitress’s description of the combo meal, and I wanted some hot soup to come with my meal, I also ordered a dumpling noodle soup. When our meals were served, whoa, they came with a free soup. I ended up having my dumpling noodle soup wrapped for to-go.
Their food was really yummy! The spicy squid was just perfect–crispy and just-right spicy. I wanted to dip it to vinegar, but the bit-sweet sauce that came with it somehow evened out the spiciness. The strawberry shake was good, not too sweet yet a bit tangy. My colleagues had the milk (with black sago) and green teas, and they loved it too. They said, it was a biggie serving considering that it came sort of free. The price is not bad at all: each combo meal was Php110.
The dumpling noodle soup that I brought to the office was also good, said Tom, the willing and eager recipient.
Now, I wish I had a camera with us to take some photos. But I’m definitely going back there and sample all their dishes!
The place is easy to find: Cafe 88 Degrees, G/F Centerpoint Building, Julia Vargas Avenue cor. Garnet Road, Ortigas Center.

Well, after a much ballyhooed opening, they also experienced an inaugural delay. Their original ETD was at 4:30PM, but was moved to 7:30. The reason being that the additional servicing was causing a bottleneck. Why open it to accommodate airlines when it’s not ready?
In any case, Wizheart would have taken more photos if he had not been irate. Still…

Mercury Drug now allows customers to call and order medicines, then pick their orders in 30 minutes or one hour. Well, Mercury has been doing it for a year or so, I think.
Isn’t it cool?
