Shopping
Lazy or too hung over to cook? This parking lot 5mins walk away is converted to a food/market/etc plaza Saturdays. (Legaspi Village, 10mins walk, takes Sundays.) Love the burritos, caterpillars.

Too lazy to cook or hungover to think on a Sunday Funday? Eat here from 6am-2pm. Buy orchids, and tell your one-night stand love is like a delicate flower...

Makati is bounded by Osmena Hiway on the West—take this to go to Malate/Intramuros or the south to Laguna—and EDSA to the East—take this to go to Quezon City or Northern Luzon or La Union for surfing.

People are fascinated by the phenomenon that poverty and necessity creates—people living among the dead, some of them living their entire lives since birth, and acting as caretakers for the deceased.

Midget boxers are small but drink prices aren't. BUT you can get a nice massage for about P200 while u watch them fight. Map location wrong by about 3 streets to south. It should be on Kalayaan Ave.

Ever had a drink on the 71st floor? This place is a bit chichi, but nice for people who like to dress nice and see well-dressed people. Music is basic house/club/nostalgic and drinks are astronomical.

Blues, barbecue, billiards, bilkers, babes, and beer. Because of these, this place is a frequent spot for expats and people who like to relax away from the glare of the red light district.

Jolly Jeeps are eat-while-u-stand food trucks on the street. They are everywhere! There's many right outside our door. Get pan de sal, bistek Tagalog, and fried bananas as merienda in the p.m.

Popular French bistro/cafe in the red light district, but sans putes; wonderful bar, featuring homemade infused rums; I recommend a Picon-Beer in the cool, covered terrace with un cigarette.

Modern Filipino cuisine that is my favorite place to have lechon-de-leche pancakes (a la peking duck with hoisin sauce etc), the deconstructed Adobo Flakes, the local ceviche called Kinilaw, and a whole lot more.

This is one of my favorite places to eat, by far. It's totally VFM (value for money) sushi, sashimi, ramen, bento boxes, and tempura, and a whole lotta things I don't order. Sit in the smoking room in the back for a tatami-style dining experience or at the bar and watch the chefs work!

This 3000 sqm hidden square is home to about 10 Japanese restaurants in a mixed open air and indoor dining setting. There's a yakitori place (grilled meats and fish) and your usual Japanese fare. A bit pricier than my fave just down the street, Nihon Bashitei, but it has character...and stray cats...and mosquitoes. Bring repellent.

So hard to choose between "restaurant," "café and coffee," and "bakery." This is an all-in-one. I love practically anything on the menu, which is dominated by American-style diner dishes with upscale ingredients (by PH standards) and the baked goods is set in a smorgasbord-style as you walk in the door.

This is my favorite pizza chain, because I love thin-crust pizza. It's super oily, but hey, you only live once. Order the fried chicken and the mojos (thick cut potato chips) to bite into my childhood a little.

Entertainment & Activities
If you want to know how the chichi shopped back in the day, take a trip to Escolta Street. It straddles the Pasig River and Binondo, our own Chinatown, and has large buildings that used to be the premier department stores, movie houses, and banks back in the day. Sadly, the buildings are under threat of development, but there are some crusaders that will walk you through the glamour of Old Manila. Check out the Binondo Food Tour or Carlos Celdran's Walking Tour of Neighboring Intramuros and Manila.
