I have cousins that work at help desks in the Philippines, and their work schedules are designed to match US time zones. After work, they hang out at bars with happy hours designed for them - I believe around ten in the morning. They hang out, then go home to sleep for the rest of the day.

Globalisation at work.

If you are ever in the Phils, you can see this - ask to go to Eastwood - they have a number of condo high rises and office buildings. The first and sometimes second floors of the buildings, are filled with coffee shops and restaurants.

Yup, here in Eastwood, workers with lanyards and badges all day and all night, streaming in and out by the thousands. It's quite a sight. Great, inquisitive people and always friendly.

It's cool to have nearly real-time confirmation from someone who is actually there! ... I found the UCC Coffee shop to be expensive however, but I am a cheap guy :-)
