When In Manila–when in the Philippines in general–you’ll probably notice that everyone’s a little bit more…substantial after the holidays, even a month into 2013. Don’t laugh if you do–Filipino holiday food is the best in the world, and Filipino feast so lavish that overindulging is…sort of inevitable.
…At least it was for me.
Being a bit bigger shouldn’t have been much of a problem, if this season wasn’t also gradpic season. The prospect of a camera turned my way, in this state, was terrifying. After all, isn’t it a truth universally acknowledged that the infernal device adds ten pounds? Or is that only the movie kind? You be the judge.
