An Eternal Quest for Incremental Improvement

A trip to Manila

Last week I returned from a short business trip to Manila. I couldn't visit any places due to the tight schedule/budget.

This time I flew on Singapore Airlines. Singapore Airlines is much better than British Airways in terms of service, quality and comfort of the flight. The worthy mention is their inflight entertainment system that is capable of delivering on demand (near) videos compared to the broadcast videos in British Airways. Singapore airport is one of the best airports I have seen. Plenty of shopping options.

I was staying in Makati. The traffic in Makati is 10 times worse than the traffic in Bangalore. The climate is much like the typical Indian climate. The overall stay experience was very good apart from my dislike towards the food. I managed to find a couple of Indian/Afghan restaurants around my hotel. But they were quite expensive.
