Per as it was

And just like in a movie, time stopped when we talked. And when the bomb was dropped, everything resumed per as it was.

Except for me. I was once again infiltrated by the shrapnels I can never avoid, I can never miss. I wish though time would stop for me even without you as a medium. To lend me some time to recuperate a bit.

So that I, too, can be per as it was.

altMNL presents: Top Ten Midnight Mercato Musts

It’s 12AM – you’re in the city after a hard day’s work, or maybe it’s your lunchtime, or maybe the barkada hanged around a little bit too much and now you’re out-of-your-wits hungry. Tired of the usual 24-hour places, you scour the city for something more filling, something more affordable, and something new to the senses. There’s no other place that will satisfy your (or your crazy barkada’s) need at this time of the day better than the midnight market.

But lets face it: it can be quite a challenge (and a little tiring) to go through all the stalls to find out what’s hot and what’s not. Fear not, awesome readers! Your ALTteam is here to bring you the top 10 bites from Midnight Mercato and Mezza Norte: two of the metro’s jampacked midnight markets.

Read on and you can thank us later!


You guys!! It’s my first article on our new blog altMNL. Hope you can drop by for a visit! Thank you so much!!
