From the plane's window, that is.
As the Philippine Airlines plane took off from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport runway last January 2010 en route to Incheon International Airport, I was seated at a window seat (which I requested) and try to have the last glimpse of Manila from up the air.
And as the plane gained altitude, I snapped this photo. It's Makati City, my former workplace....and playground! And the photo became a screensaver for a time.
And today, as I fly back to Manila, I hope to see the same view; this time, from the ground.
I miss the place, and I intend to lose myself among the crowds, the shops and most of all, the Christmas atmosphere.
