Manila Vanilla

What it's like to be a U.S. Fulbright scholar, basketball player, journalist, and the whitest man in Metro Manila.

New Yorker by birth, shipped across the globe to the world of malls, shanty-towns, patronage, corruption, basketball and a curious burnt-toast smell that wafts around at dusk

If you browse Sandro's photos, you will find little bits and pieces of me in many of them, but none so much as this one, which is really just a shot of me looking pissed off. I can't say why, however, because I was much more relaxed here, at Arenas' first appearance of the day at SM Mall of Asia, then I was 10 hours later, after three in-stores, one quarter of Ateneo-La Salle, Arenas' basketball exhibition and a new personal commuting record that took me from from Katipunan to Mall of Asia to Rockwell to Cubao to Trinoma and back to Katips, all using trains and jeepneys.
