We were looking forward to going to Hanoi but my daughter has to return to Melbourne earlier because her landlord gave notice, leaving her frantically searching for a room.

I suddenly felt weak, feverish and nauseous last night. I think it was the local oysters last week. Right now I've lost all appetite and am not even looking forward to traveling. In a way it's good because it makes me more careful about eating out. But we made an impulsive move last Friday after speaking to a friend who has been to Manila many times. She highly recommends the city for its food and shopping ("Better than KL"). Friends who know we are going to Manila tell us not to miss the pork dishes and to stay within the Makati area, making me nervous. The first and last time I was in Manila was about two decades ago, and all I remember is the disparity between rich and poor. But that's the case with most Asian countries--Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan being the exception. So we're off to Manila this afternoon. Tell me if there are places and food we cannot miss. Be back Friday. Have a great week!
