Last January, I purposely didn’t book a flight to Manila on Holy Week-end and instead just visit in June. I felt like I went home to Manila far too often in 2011 and now, I just want to stay put and grow roots in Singapore.
Unexpectedly, I flew to Manila last week, April 9, for a round of fieldwork. It is quite out of the blue, but I was excited to be back sooner than planned. I didn’t have enough time to do everything I wanted to do and to meet everyone I wanted to catch-up with, but I was able to pretty much stretch what little time I got.
Some photos at Changi Airport, popular for being one of the best airports in the world. I wouldn’t disagree.
We departed Singapore at around 6PM and arrived in Manila at around 915PM. I love taking night flights when flying back to Manila because the view of the city from the top is gorgeous because of the lights! Singapore cannot match!
Then the next day was the start of fieldwork which spills over for the next four days.
These kids saw me with my camera and they asked me to take a picture of them!
