SM Mall

View of Northwing at SM Clark


These days SM Mall in Clark is noisy and dirty. Not because of being too crowded with Trike drivers, maids, shoppers and employees, but because of construction. Soon SM Clark will be expanding to it’s North side. Stay tuned for my pictorial once it’s new shops are open for public.

Angeles has always been known for it’s tremendous amount of beautiful women. It’s possibly the best spot for finding your Philippine girlfriend or spouse after local authorities outlawed barfines in Fields Avenue bars. Employees have to work full time these days and can not count on early work releases. They must get tired of work as dancing and bar tending full hours is a harder job than being a spouse of an retired officer in America. Think about it, Angeles is going the same route as Cuba and Saudi Arabia with fake relationship and short time marriages. Funny how Filipinos tend to copycat other countries instead of fixing their problems right away.

Dirty beach

Dark sands on dirty Subic beach

Angeles can become very boring after some time. Subic Bay and Olongapo are around 2 hours by car going West on newly built Tarlac highway. The ride next to Mount Pinatubo is more exciting than Barrio Baretto itself. The bario and most beaches like Baloy beach are rather dark and dirty. Unlike in Boracay, nobody cleans the beaches. It’s filled with trash, broken glasses, used condo ms and other treasuries of South China Sea. Hey, maybe some guys are looking for gold from Japanese WWIII ship wrecks?

Food Stalls on Fields

Just when venues open, many night workers rush to pick up barbeque chicken and hot dogs from street stalls. It’s cheaper than Jollybee fastfood and Kokomos restuarant next by.

Tune Hotel

Entrance of Tune Hotel in Clark

The strip on Don Juico Hotel was once a monopoly to Oasis and Clarkton Hotels, but many more accommodations are flooding the Clark airport vicinity. Tune Hotels with it’s fire red decoration adds to versatility in low budget sector. Small rooms aimed at cheap travelers from Air Asia flights arriving in DMIA airport, fully bookable online together with airline flights.

Many travelers will love this news: Seair in cooperation with Tiger Airways from Singapore celebrate their first anniversary of their flights from Bangkok to Clark. Their flights are perceived as more accommodating than rival airline Cebu Pacific Air. The only thing that was making me wondering while boarding the flight: their Boeing 737 aircrafts have row 4 missing. I know most airlines don’t offer row 13, but it’s the first aircraft without row 4 ever. Anybody know why?
