Yes, Anthony Bourdain came to Manila last year and his weeks of exploring the country were captured in the Manila episode of his Parts Unknown.
Together with a group of photographers, I was there during the Oarhouse scene but didn't expect to actually be part of the episode. Still, it was a pleasant surprise.
Thank you Mr. Bourdain for dropping by for a drink at the now historic Oar house Pub.
