manila: inspiration from an unexpected bonus view.

makati fireworks 4

i had no idea how great the view was from my new pad in makati until new year's eve; from the living room i can see the distant fireworks set off along manila bay, but from the bedroom windows i have a nearly front row view of the ayala/makati display. the fireworks are so close, in fact, that the concussions rattle the windows in a most alarming way; if you did not know it was a holiday, this--along with the billowing smoke from the explosives--would make you think there was a war going on outside. yeeps.
