Sunny Manila & A Night Out With Bryanboy (AGAIN!)

Got to KLIA nice and early, even with the horrific traffic near Sierramas (stupid flyover has to be torn down).

Had an interesting breakfast, and started on my book, Midnight Cowboy (will review seperately later).


Arrived in Ninoy Aquino without any trouble and passed through immigration fairly fast.

Ninoy Aquino

Astor Hotel (Best Western) Makati.

Astor Hotel

Hotel was decent enough, was in a shitty place though, seemed like a red light district (Near Jupiter Street?)

Hotel Room

After that took a shower, and had a nap, Bryanboy picked me up about 8.30pm.

We went for dinner at a nice Italian restaurant in the fort area (L’Opera I think), makati and then headed to cuisine, I didn’t take any picturse at the Italian place as it was too nice for that 🙂


Cuisine is a nice place with relaxing decor, cream and linen style with dim lights. The crowd is quite upmarket but was rather young this night.


After that we headed to the Prince of Jaipur for some event, but it was packed and seedy, seemed like a pick up joint for old white men.


It had interesting decor, very red and paintings/sculptures everywhere, it was more like a gallery than a club. It had some serious speakers tho.

So we quickly headed out and went back to Cuisine, our gang was me Bryan, Miguel and Mariko.

Bryan, Miguel and Mariko

Miguel is an interior designer and has done some really interesting projects.

Bryan and I camping it up.

Me & Bryanboy

There was chatting, drinking, drinking more chatting and shameless camwhoring.


Yah the lady on the right is a mother of 5, eldest is older than me…impressive eh? MILF ALERT.

Kind of jealous of her job too, she basically shops for rich people, she has a whole team of shoppers. It has some fancy name, acquisitions or something…but wtf, WHAT A JOB.

Harvey considering.


After that was off home (quite early!) about 3am, good nights sleep and up for the next day, more to come soon.

    How’s Bryanboy like in real life?

    Fashionasia: Just get a job purchasing for any of the department stores, after a few years with the right contacts (if you can get into VIP account purchasing) you should be able to do it too!

    beth: MILF is a compliment, get a grip, said it in front of her too. You are a DFWAC (Dumbfuck Without A Clue). HAND FOAD.

    Dabido: Yah there’s still hope!

    TITOKI: Exactly the same as his blog, flamboyant and very very gay obviously 😉 He’s awesome!

    I sum up that you are showing off a few skillful shots from that new Nikon camera of yours. Anyway…. NICE la!!!! Did you use a night feature? tripod?

  11. ShaolinTiger June 13, 2006 at 1:44 pm #

    Hijackqueen: Afraid not, I didn’t take it to Manila with me, these are all shot with my old Canon Powershot A70 😉 Handheld, no tripod various modes depending on the scene (mostly manual, ISO 200-400, adjusted the exposure length, resting on the table or chair for stability).

    ohmeegod if i looked like that even NOW i’d be damned! too hot to handle

    Sorry, have to agree with Beth, (apart from the GNWTF bit – that was rather unnecessary. Beth, let’s see a picture of you to compare!) MILF is a term that been has propagated by the internet porn and lad’s mags “revolution”, and I think it is pretty derogatory. But I am old, and politically correct, so it is purely IMHO. Still think it is crass tho’, bit like “chicks and babes, totty and tarts”.
    *puts slippers on and lights pipe.

    Intensecure: Yah I agree, it’s not politically correct but it’s a term they brought up first, she and a friend called a 40 year old fellar a DILF 😛 I think it’s quite a compliment anyway even if rather crass. May be crass to some but normal to other, wouldn’t see an essex lad saying “well she’s a fine boned young female” he’d be like “mate, that’s some pucka totty” same meaning, different jargon.

  15. Intensecure June 15, 2006 at 9:48 pm #

    “she and a friend called a 40 year old fellar a DILF” – LOL! OK, I give in to that one 🙂

    So does bryanboy talk with any particular kind of accent? I get the impression he’d drawl out his words a lot.
