|Johnnie Walker and Son's Voyager yacht was Manila's toast|
Now, Manila is its old self, but struggling towards modernization. Gone are those iconic houses, and in lieu, high rise buildings and modern structures befitting a city that is trying to get away from its old self.
Johnnie Walker's second coming celebrates Manila's re-awakening, from the dark days of poverty and despair, to a wonderful, wonderful new world of modernity. Voyager, the iconic whiskey yacht that visited Manila eighty years ago, has come back. Like before, Johnnie Walker invited Manila's creme dela creme for a fun-filled night full of exquisite whiskeys. Yep.
I was fortunate to be invited in this event. Johnnie Walker's yacht is docked infront of Oceana, at the Mall of Asia. What was once a drab back of Oceana, was transformed into a 20s replica bar, complete with twentish dancers dancing the 1920's hit music.
Of course, aside from the pika-pikas, Johnnie Walker whiskeys poured like water all throughout the night. The event was spec-ta-cu-lar!
Johnnie Walker also unveiled their newest creation---the Odyssey. The Odyssey is inside a special bottle that moves like the waves of the ocean. Wow.
