Scenic dining

Harbour Square is a dining promenade located across the Cultural Center of the Philippines right beside Manila Bay. It has more than a dozen restaurants and cafés, and this is where my husband and I have an early dinner when we watch performances at the CCP. The three young ladies in black are waitresses, holding out menus and encouraging people to try whatever restaurant they're working for. Harbour Square is also where I've taken all my photos of Manila Bay so far. This was around 5:00 in the afternoon and the boat for the sunset cruise hadn't left yet.

After spending 10 days in China, I'm used to those restaurant hawkers. :)

This looks like a beautiful place for dinner, especially on the terrace.

Look at that pink sky! And those happily lit-up palms! I love this one, Hilda. What a dreamy, beautiful shot.

That's a gorgeous pink sky! And I don't think I've ever seen palm trees decorated before either!

Starbucks is everywhere. It does look like a great spot for a coffee.

That sky is amazing. Get another like this for skywatch- it's a real winner.

What a lovely time of day! Those wrapped palms are oddly appealing. I didn't think about them being Christmas decorations.

This is one of my favorite spots in Manila. I have taken some photos of HS but I've yet to take one that captures the vibrant and enchanting atmosphere of the place like this one.
