W/ABC Wednesday

A logo of the W High Street Building

W High Street is a sky-scraper at the corner of 28th Street and 11th Avenue in Bonifacio Global City, right beside Bonifacio High Street, an al fresco mall.

I have walked past this building countless of times when I jog/brisk walk around High Street.  And I had been curious about a crowd of well-dressed young people waiting in line at the lobby on some nights.  I would have checked it out but my well-worn running shoes seem out of place.  A wandering night-owl told me recently that there is a lounge bar at the roof-deck of W High Street called Skye, a popular bar in the Manila club scene.  The building itself, in terms of design, is unremarkable.  But I tend to wobble around the corner of this building when I see sleek cars in the Lamborghini and Audi showrooms---they make me whistle under my breath.  Well, a Lamborghini is not exactly in my wish list [driving a Lamborghini around here is reprehensible, in my opinion] but makes me wonder if there is really such a thing as a winning streak.:p

Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” ~ Epictetus

winning streak - makes me wonder too. I like sky dining, although not that keen on clubbing.
