View From 30 Floors Above [✏]Thursday, November 01, 2012
I am currently deployed and based on one of our clients and I do my programming work there throughout the week. Though being on one of the high-rise floors of the building can become a problem (especially during earthquakes and fire, wherein I have to go down through 30 floors by stairs) I find it fortunate that I have a great view of the Manila Bay from my working area. I can see the long stretch of Manila Bay together with familiar structures from a distance like the Mall of Asia Arena, Star City, Cultural Center of the Philippines, and Sofitel.

I see everyday the formation of the clouds and the difference of the neighborhood when the weather becomes sunny and stormy.

|You can see the section where it's not raining yet and the part where it is already coming down.|

The best part of all of this is the breathtaking sunset that can be seen everyday. Manila Bay has one of the most dramatic sunset views in the country, and I can prove this true because I've seen the most majestic ones in my life on this bay.
Surely I'll continue to cherish every view and sunset that I will see from my desk in the future. It's such a great reliever of stress from work and it serves as a source of inspiration as each day ends. ^_^
I applied no filters on all images herein (except the first one). :)
