No, unlike what I had initially thought it was too, this is not a movie. 🙂 Although, I seriously think, it would make a fantastic movie title!
I’ve only been to Manila once and not even to visit but because of an unfortunate “left-by-the-connecting-flight-back-to-Cebu” moment. (Ofcourse, that is a different story..hehe…but I would totally blame it on the pregnancy and whole baby brain thing!) But if BIG TIME Hollywood actors like Leonardo Di Caprio and Robert De Niro and Director Martin Scorsese are apparently going there for the City of Dreams Hotel/Casino/Resort experience, who wouldn’t want to go there too, right? If the endorsements are priced this much, the place must be so worth all the time and effort to visit it, I guess. For sure, I couldn’t afford a room, possible only a bottle of mineral water (and I might even be wrong on that too) in such a luxurious place but if stepping into and just taking pictures inside is free, I most definitely would make this place a go-to if I ever go back to Manila – this time for some real sightseeing! 🙂
Here is the mini movie for your viewing pleasure:
I’ve played it multiple times now as I’ve shared it on FB as well and it just makes me so excited…who wouldn’t be excited with Leonardo and De Niro, right? (And no, not in that sense, believe me…this is all wholesome stuff, I promise!) The place is opening this February 2015 before the celebration of the Chinese New Year so if you’re ever looking to visit Manila soon, make sure you have this on your checklist as well! After all, it’s always more fun in the Philippines! 🙂
