Laundry, Laptop Repair & More Adventures

Aloha Everyone,

Enjoyed my healthy breakfast of egg white omelette plate adorned with veggies, fruits plus a plain croissant. 

At 7:48 am, we left our hotel to deliver our laundry. Several cab drivers slowed down to see if we needed a ride.  Difficulty is that with so many one way streets, it is easier to go on foot. I included 90% of the clothes we have. 450 pesos or US $8.20 is a bargain. Same day service. The laundry was ready at 3:00 pm.

What to do when escalators are not working? You just grin and walk down or up the steps.

While J.J. was having his laptop rebooted, we found the new Manam restaurant. Bigger and improved dining facility, we recognized some of the staff along with new trainees.

It took an hour at the cost of 1,500 pesos or about US $27.00 to reboot his laptop. J.J. was able to upload most of his data from his external drive. Next he will work on restoring the audio.

Overall a great day. J.J. walked 3.3 miles and I walked 5.2 miles. Also attached is a photo taken from our 14th floor of Dusit Thani, the hotel both Jeff & Jenny had stayed on their separate trips to the Philippines.

Aloha -- Cathi
