Harbor Square along CCP Complex

Valentine’s day 2008. I opened the office window and gazed below me right across Roxas Boulevard, Harbor Square. Seemed like the Philippine’s Fisherman’s Warf of San Francisco. So I hauled in some friends, grabbed the Canon Powershot A550 and we went down the place for a pictorial and a lunch. Malate. Just too many interesting scenes and subjects for a trying hard lensman it deserved a blog. So here.

..and the Sun Cruise. Your lines to Corregidor island. For local or foreign tourists planning on a trip to the island, here’s the rate: Prestige Tours offers 1,400 php per head for a group of no less than 40 persons, while Sun Cruise offers 1,800php for a whole day trip to the island plus meals.  That’s more than my one month’s room rent!
