We were on the first flight out so we got to Manila at around 8 am, just when everyone's day was starting.

Kuya Ricky, our tour guide, took us to Nuvali. We've heard a lot about Nuvali from Sir Paul, our teacher, so we wanted to check it out. It did not disappoint! Nuvali's like a park where you can walk your dog, rent and ride bikes or boats and feed the fishes. It also has shops and restaurants. It's so nice cause you're getting some fresh air outdoors, but there's also something for the shoppingera of the group, who can get her loot as the compound houses lots of outlet shops (including Aldo, Nike and Adidas).

Gian, Mai-mai, Camzie, Claire and I broke off from the group to walk around and explore. Of course, being the blogger that I am, I asked Gian to take some cheesy shots of us. Haha
March, who met up with her boyfriend, was calling us to try out ice cream from Family Mart. We caught up with her and call it coincidence or not but Family Mart was right beside BANAPPLE. OMG Banapple!! Isa to sa mga namiss ko sa Manila. In fact, when we found out our itinerary, we made plans to eat at Banapple but upon Googling, we found out that Mall of Asia, where we would be before heading to the airport, didn't have a branch. Boo. So happy that we were able to get our fix for the trip! :)
That day, there was a shooting for the local TV show LuvU and while we were looking at the menu (we considered taking home a slice of Banoffee pie since it would be dinner time soon), the assistant director called us over to be part of the scene so we had no choice but to eat there. Haha (no choice daw? Nagpabebe pa hahaha)
Ayun, nagLaguna lang, naging extra pa. :))
When we got to the hotel, we all met up at our room for some pretty silly games. I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard! Definitely ended our first day on a good note! Watch out for the rest of the trip! :)
