Surprise, surprise! I'm in Manila now. I'm sure I didn't really elaborate in the previous blog post that I'll be coming home. But, I'm going to stay here now. I miss Japan so much at the same time, I'm excited for my "new" life here. First off, I'll be showing you to places that I find similar to Japan in a way. So even if I'm not in Japan any more, I won't be feeling homesick. I've asked my family and friends about places in Manila / Philippines that remind them about Japan and they gave me quite a list. If you have any suggestions, please comment down below.
Yesterday, my friends took me to this mall called "Century City" in Makati to try this concept food court, "Hole in the Wall". My first impression was, it's definitely not a dingy place. I'm not sure why they named it that way, probably just to catch some attention. Actually, it's a perfect fit for people like me who's looking for places that reminds them of their favourite spots abroad. It will surely remind someone of Hong Kong or Korea, too. But since I lived in Japan, it reminded me of it.
Matcha sesame! Yum, my favourite combination in one. In Japan, we usually have soft serves of matcha and sesame. What a clever idea to make a cookie version of it! I wasn't able to try it because I was really full and feeling bloated that time.
