Last Weekend in Asia!

Hey Folks!

Its my last weekend in Asia! after 8 Wonderful months!

My last 5 days will be spent in Manila, Philippines!

I am staying at a dorm in Friendly Guesthouse which is great. There are 10 people in the room from all over the world who are great to talk to. I am situated in Malate near the Mall of Asia.

My friend Eve is also in Manila before she heads to Bali, and crazy enough she is in a hostel right across the street from mine and we didnt plan that! :) haha so Ive gone for dinner with her for the last 2 days. Tomorrow her and I will wander around Intramuros and perhaps stop by the Greenhills Flea Market for some cheap knock offs :) woot! Fake Luxury here I come! :P

and on my very last day in Asia- What will I be doing?!?! Shopping at the Megamall at Forever 21 my favourite store in the whole wide world!!!! :D

I leave Manila on Tuesday at 6:30AM and fly:
Manila - Nagoya
Nagoya - Detroit
Detroit - Minneapolis
Minneapolis - Thunder Bay

I land at 9:30PM in Home sweet Home! :)

See you then everybody!

Thanks for Reading my Blog these past 8 months! Hope you enjoyed experiencing Asia through my pictures!

Jail Talent Show

Hey Friendfolk,

Some of the interns here in Davao work at the local woman's jail. Its not really a jail - it is where woman are held until they are convicted of tried for a crime - since this is the Philippines- some of these woman have been there for 6 years without being convicted of everything! What a terrible thing. But all these woman are very nice people filled with hope and determined to do good when they get out - they must spend a lot of each day praying. So it makes sense.

But! Since the interns are soon to be leaving - they decided to host a talent show with the woman in the prison. All of the AIESEC interns here in Davao, about 40 of us, all went to the jail, to watch the woman sing, dance, and act. It was a jolly time.

Afterwards we had options to get massages, manicures, pedicures, or hair cuts - since these were the professions of the woman prior to being put in the jail. I got a full body massage...and I am a happy person! :)

I went to the mall afterwords and bought lots and lots of dvds for 60P ($1.25) each - I spent $15 Canadian and bought - How I Met Your Mother Season 1-5, House Season 1-5, Rome Season 1, true Blood Season 1-2, and 4 movies; Inception, PS I Love You, The Notebook, and The Hangover! WOWZERS!! I love the affordability of Asia! :)

Happy Days
