Your Home Away from Home at the Heart of Makati, Manila
About Abela Apartments
I enjoy nature, travel, music, arts and books. Outdoors is fascinating for me. I have tried everything which you can probably do in a tropical camping, scuba diving, skydiving, sailing, I am no good in any of them. :o) I like exploring the city, meeting people, seeing independent films, volunteering, hanging out with friends, ethnic dining and trying new things. Way beyond the average American, I have visited 28 states and still counting. I have traveled in England, France, Austria, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Vatican City, Switzerland, Germany, Ireland, Monaco, Liechtenstein, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovinia, Montenegro, Croatia,Turkey, Greece, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, China, South Korea, all over the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico. 39 countries. If you would count Epcot, probably I can say that I have traveled all over the world. I have lived in New York and New Jersey for 8 years. Now living in Chicago.
