When we were in Subic, we didn’t go and look for the quirkiest cafes or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. I’m not even sure if such exists in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone and unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to pick a more adventurous alternative. But that doesn’t mean we were left hungry during our short overnight stay there.
The actual flight plus time spent inside Changi Airport took us more than 4 hours.

Apparently, it’s not enough that China’s one of the most overpopulated Asian country, they need to have their own crowded sectors in other countries as well. Fine.
