As you might not already know, I went to Manila for another business trip. I helped out another site as POC. It 's a good experience since I wanted to prove my worth. It's a bit daunting at times but I know I should look at the brighter side, I get to travel! It's already a feat for me since I've been given the responsibility.
Went to UP Science Park since that's where the site is located.
The travel to Manila was extremely stressful cause when I got to the airport and had my e-ticket exchanged for a boarding pass, that's when I realized that the routing was incorrect. The flight was bound from Manila to Cebu, not the other way around. I felt embarrassed because I prepared myself to be ready at that time but lo and behold, the mishap made me look like a fool.
I just called my boss and had to go back to Cebu proper to have the ticket changed through the agency. So the flight was rescheduled and I had to go back to the airport in the afternoon (all the while I had no sleep!) until I could fly to Manila. The Philippine Airlines trip was delayed by an hour and it was raining hard at the time. I hired an airport taxi to take me to the hotel and I arrived at 8pm. It would've been good if I had to rest directly but NO, I still had to go to work at 10pm! So I excused myself to be a little bit late.
The management greeted me when I got back to the office and I saw some familiar faces when we last dropped by Manila. However, all of them looked so fresh and dressed up whereas I looked so tired and beaten because of the stress. My eyes were bloody red because of the lack of sleep but I still had to be on duty.
Anyway, took pictures of UP Science Park and had fun. The place is still new, I wish newer establishments were put up. Considering that this land was developed by the Ayala group, you can expect the landscape to be really good and nice.
