Pobla Night: June 03-04

I have been to some of the best bars in the world but nothing really beats the company of friends to those bars – rooftops, dancing, singing, drinking, fooling around, bar hopping (my max was 5 bars in one night – one for the books) . I don’t party unless my friends come knocking in my door but when I open my door for them, we party hard. 😉

There are friends you call for museums, parks, travel, brunch, coffee and of course your party people – Leng and AJ. I missed them! It’s been so long since I have seen AJ. We used to go to rave parties and EDM concerts before and it’s always fun! I don’t even know how to begin how ecstatic I am writing about this. Too many fun things happened, this is the reason why I love going out – different contained experiences. I am in my life right now that I crave exploration and experience but you see if I find the right guy, I’d think of getting serious. haha!

I used to have a list of my go to bars and clubs drinking the best cocktails and beers in Singapore and here I am in the Philippines crawling my way again to happiness. Can’t wait to blog about the best beer, bars with friends in the Philippines!

Poblacion is Makati’s hippest neighborhood with countless bars and restaurants line up in the streets, they say it’s arguably the center of entertainment in Makati. Poblacion reminds me of Haji Lane in Singapore.

Filling Station Bar Cafe
Burgos St. Makati Philippines
Php1,000-Php2,000

One of the restaurants that stood among the bustling streets in Poblacion is a bar with it’s attention-grabbing neon lit facade. It is an instagrammable bar with the waiters dressed up like superheroes or Chuckie doll. I actually prefer best food than best aesthetics. As much as I like the interior of this bar, the food was a let down. Food was a bit too pricy and dry for the taste, I only like the strawberry milkshake which is very creamy. I love the experience but I won’t come back just for the food and photos. Once is enough to try this place.

Secret Door
Poblacion Makati

The Secret door is literally concealed with secret passage along Poblacion. They have accommodating staffs, awesome music and dance floor. It is open from 9pm until everyone is drunk or your friend are already breaking glasses haha! I missed dancing and just drinking – tequila, whisky, beer and trying hookah shisha. I am not a fan of smoking anymore but it’s god damn Friday night and I was celebrating my brother’s brother so what the hell! Although, the drinks were just basic it still turned out to be a crazy and fun night. One of the best nights of my life! Need I say more? 😀

Party Mask on

I want to do it again but it will all be onhold for the next 2 weeks because I have swollen face due to impacted tooth surgery. I need alcohol after that haha!

So come with me and fly away,
