…it would tell you a lot.
I’m a city girl through and through, though a road trip out of Manila is a welcome break. I’m in love with how busy the streets get during rush hour (you may also insert some cursing at the traffic here), the way the lights dance as cars inch their way forward, and the chatter of commuters as they recap the days’ events. That’s the main reason I refuse to learn how to drive – nothing compares to the challenge of surviving the streets of Manila on foot.
Whenever I’m asked where I live and I answer “Sa may Tomas Morato”, I get the same reaction: “Wow ang lapit mo sa gimikan!”
While that’s true, I love Tomas Morato more for its restaurants and cozy coffee shops. Back when I was still in my first job, ‘Tomas’ was our go-to place for late-night caps. Before one of my good friends from college, Jarvik, moved south, Baang and Kopi Roti were the no-brainer destinations for some weekend catching up.
