1. The only picture taken of scenery in KK in a bumpy ride
Now, I went to KK for 6 hours. One hour, we went out for lunch, the other hour at customer's place, and the rest of the 4 hours, we sat at the airport to wait for the flight to RP.
So, while waiting and doing nothing, I shot something to syok sendiri and trying to kill the boredom.
2. I took the Cebu Pacific Airlines to RP
Finally, the plane was there. Moved on to the next day. We were at the event called Philippines Society for Microbiology(PSM, not PMS!) and set up our booth. As usual, our products always gained pretty huge attention, and it NEVER FAILED to make people feel impressed.
5. A customer enquiring about something
6. Microbiologists of Philippines registering their name before entering the main hall
Something that is very different of culture in RP and Malaysia is that, for example, their PSM, they actually hired entertainers like the picture below to entertain the crowd,
And, they actually had a small dance floor after the PSM finished! Unlike Malaysia's one, after finish, they'll tapao some leftover food, then head back to hotel/home straight.
Life's pretty much differ when the culture is different huh?
8. One of the sunset taken from my hotel room
9. They have one of the best sunsets I had ever seen
10. This is the lunch provided by the Hyatt Hotel to the distributors with the products I'm selling at the background
Now, giving you a litle bit of in sight of how Philippines is like, for those who had never been there. Day and night is very different, oh well, night, the night life, you-know-what.
The special thing in Manila is that, you see security guards EVERYWHERE. And, their security guards are totally different of those we had in Malaysia. Their security guards are fit and tough, and everyone is well equipped with, either a revolver, shotgun, or even M-16!!
Just imagine a normal 7-11 have a security guard! THAT, doesn't means that Manila is not safe. It is safer than I thought actually. Who dare to simply rob someone on the streets when security guards with weapons are all over the place? In Malaysia is different. The Mat Rempits aka robbers aka snatch thieves aka rapists are EVERYWHERE while the guards, have a fucking big belly or even worse, a 60-year-old grandfather as a security guards. You will NEVER see that in RP.
The other thing, also security related, whoever visits the shopping mall, will have to be checked at the security checkpoint(inclusive your bags, handbags, bla bla bla) then only you're allowed to enter the premis. So is the 5-star hotel like Hyatt.
That's all for now. Hopefully the next time I go, I will be able to have time to walk around and really really, enjoy the local lifestyle.
p/s: OMG I love Philippines girls! They are really really soft-spoken, and really really nice to talk to. Ahhh~
