Well, your visiting the Philippines for the 5th time, thats really great. But any local will tell you, that it was never, even for 4 minutes became a British colony.

1972 -1974 Britain fought the Spanish in Manila and took control.

1972-1974??? What the hell was I thinking? Indeed it must have been too many San Migs!!
It was of course 1762-1764.
