No Photos Allowed!

While the Anime@Arki film showings have come and gone, the gang usually reunites every year (we diminish with each passing year), usually when someone from Japan arrives. The last time we met up was in Greenbelt 3, and since most of them were architects, the conversation drifted to buildings, and how you couldn't take pictures of buildings in corporate Makati. At least not without a permit and paying a fee. However, you could take pictures of people, so if you do a guerilla shot of buildings there, bring a friend.

The Fort, however, is much more stricter. You can't shoot photographs at all, and I think the fee is P15,000. One of our photographers once shot a runner getting ready to sprint, with the sky as his background. Sorry, you're still paying that P15,000 permit.

Thats why we homies invented "Drive-by Shooting". :D Man thats absurd. Thanks for telling me this, at least that scratches the place off as a potention cosplay photoshoot.

Except the problem with the Fort is that there are guards everywhere, which makes us act paranoid. Unless it's literally a drive-by-shooting (shooting when you're in your car driving), it's difficult to get away with it, although definitely doable in certain parts of Makati.

Wala. =( The Makati thing was the previous time pa, when we ate at Buba Gump in Greenbelt. Right now it's just me and Joel, since you're in Japan, and Ellaine's in Canada.

I've actually met acquaintances of the Dytocs but no word from Bronne...
