It has been 22 years since I left the Philippines for New York City. A lot of things has changed since then. But I’m thankful that some of the things that I cherished most remain unchanged and are always there to make me feel at home every time I return, like the uplifting smile and warmth of the people and — the beautiful sunset on Manila Bay.
On the first evening of my last visit in the Philippines, I took Keith to my favorite sunset viewing spot by the bay where we joined many other couples who were there to enjoy the spectacular burst in the sky.
What makes you feel at home when you return to your hometown?
- This viewing spot is located on Manila Bay Promenade behind the Mall of Asia (MOA) in Pasay City, Metro Manila.
- The area is also a popular venue for open air cafes and restaurant. Some of the restaurants offer live music.
- Our favorite dining place is the strip of restaurants called “Dampa.” It has wet markets where you can buy fresh seafood. You then bring them to the restaurant of your choice on the strip and they will cook the seafood for you any way you want it. You only pay for cooking fees, side dishes and drinks.
