Mr. Happy Goes to Manila

Gosh I've been traveling back and forth so much lately that I'm beginning to feel the strain. I mean I was just back in KL for a few days when this morning I found myself in KLIA with my bags packed again wearing my trusty "Mr.Happy" t-shirt.

My "Mr.Happy" t-shirt seems to be my default traveling shirt. Like whenever I board a plane I'm wearing that shirt.

This morning I was at the McDs in KLIA when I walked to the cashier to place my order.
The minute the cashier saw me she said
"Mr. Happy!!!".

I smiled at her and said
"Yes... good morning.. Mr. Happy would like a Sausage McMuffin set with egg please".

Anyway after my Sunday morning breakfast I boarded the plane and a few hours later...

Helloooooooo Manila!
I'm down in Manila for much of this week to meet up with the Filipino Nuffies at our office here and get some things sorted out. Nuffnang Philippines seems to be taking off really quick. Just a few weeks after our launch and we now have close to 1,000 Nuffnangers signed up here and we're in the midst of launching our first ad campaigns.

Whew... the excitement.

I really kinda like Manila. It's just... nice and the people here are so warm.

I was walking on the street and a policeman walked past me and greeted me
"Good evening Sir".

I was a little taken aback.... I mean I've never been greeted by a policeman before merely for walking any street in any part of the world.

Ahh anyway, I gotta get ready to go to bed soon guys. Have an early start tomorrow with the Pinoy Nuffies.

Nite nite! Will blog more about my trip here in time to come!

Took MAS aye?

I was told that if you were to take Air Asia they will land you at some military base 2 hours away from Manila. And 2 hours away by a cab to Manila is freaking Rm400 after conversion to get you there.

Anyway have a good time in Manila boss.
