Even a 5-star hotel in Makati City does not guarantee good English:-)
More than the English though, I was surprised to find that the taxi meter of the taxi I took from New World Renaissance Hotel in Makati City to the airport amounted to P180.00. That’s fast. Very fast.
Me: “Masyado po yatang mabilis ang metro ninyo.”
Taxi Driver: “Talaga? Kakalabas ko lang kasi nito e.”
Me: “Pa-check nyo po. Christmas pa naman. Baka marami ang magreklamo sa inyo.”
Taxi Driver: (kamot ng buhok)
Tsk. Tsk. Nothing much has changed.
