Yum yum salmon!

I just realized how good the Wild Sockeye Salmon on Filone sandwich at Starbucks is. At 5.95, it's so cheap! There's other sandwiches on Starbucks' shelves too, but they don't taste as good. I don't get how they price their inventory. One would expect that the salmon sandwiches would cost more (besides the fact that it's local since we get salmon from BC) but I would gladly pay up to 7.50 for this sandwich, while the less tasty ones, the 5.95 price tag does not justify it's taste.

It goes maybe not so well with Caramel Machiatto, I probably should have gotten a tea, or some fruit drink. Salmon doesn't really pair well with coffee or any bitter drink.

orginally there were 2 main international schools in manila for a long time -- ISM and Brent.

If your sis was thinking about the British School, thats a part of the euro campus (british school, french school, german school) and it's mostly the kids of europeans that go to school there.

what makes ISM and Brent int'l schools is that all instruction is in english, they only allow a percentage of filipinos into the school for both students and faculty.

ISM works on the AP system while Brent does the IB (int'l baccalaureate) which is more recognized in Europe whereas AP of course is used in US schools more.
