Global support

This is a slightly different view of the residential and commercial condominiums in Eastwood City from the photo which I posted back in October. Eastwood was one of the first land developments in Manila that specifically targeted the business process outsourcing industry, providing their buildings with advanced high-bandwidth and fiber optic telecommunications systems. Dell International Services, which provides customer care and other support services for Dell users, has a center in the Eastwood City CyberPark.

So urban in feel. This could be any city in the world.

we have tall buildings here in our nook, too but not as tall and as plenty as it is in Manila. At times i miss scenes like this.
Beautiful shot, Hilda!

Happy holiday and happy weekend!

The buildings look so neat and and orderly, which seems appropriate. The sky looks fluffy and pretty and not easily controlled. I like the contrast.

Al said...

That's quite a group of tall buildings, much larger than anything in my town. And a nice warm sky for SWF.

Some nice skyscrapers for Skywatch Friday. I usually have a bad experience trying to understand people in those call centers but the buildings look great from the outside.

Regina said...

Nice sky watch Hilda.
Enjoy the long weekend.

I like the buildings, the ones on the right more than the others.

An interesting take on Sky Watch - and we learned more about Manila in the process!

«Louis» called his bank today - the customer service person was in Manila. «Louis» greeted and thanked her in Tagalog...

This is well composed, Hilda. The buildings look almost like living entities, gathered there under the sky.

Lois said...

That is certainly something we don't have here! I'll bet the views at the top are fantastic.

arabesque said...

again, i haven't been to libis in ages. so much has changed and i think the place has been bombarded by call centers. ^0^
regardless, it's a fantastic view.

Very cool. What an imposing cluster of towers

Martha Z said...

An interesting look at your city, I don't think I expected to see so many high rises.

Manang Kim said...

I like the shot, I thought this is not in Manila but other country. Happy weekend!

Looks like a nice, calm sky!

My company may also have offices in there. Our IT help line is now based out of the Philipines. Every time I call, the people are very friendly and helpful. (I hate to say it - but usually better than when we called people in the US!).

Linda said...

A great sky shot with the soaring buildings in the foreground.

Jacob said...

And this is just as impressive as your other photo. I do like the clouds hovering overhead!

ρομπερτ said...

The sky, indeed, seems to be the only limit.

Please have a nice weekend.

I love the clouds hovering over those tall buildings! Nice shot!

George said...

I love these buildings reaching up to touch the clouds. Great picture!

vincibene said...

Great shot, impressive buildings!
