So the entire afternoon has been chaos in my part of Makati. There is no power and the hotel generator is too busy powering the lifts too power the rooms and air con.
But you only have to look out at the street to see why utilities such as phones and power can be dubious here 🙂
Fortunately the pizza place also had a generator, so I had some delicious pepperoni without dining in darkness. The power returned just as I had resigned myself to an evening of dark contemplation.
