You need to pay your own way to Manila.  They will pay for your interisland transport, two nights lodging around your presentation, food and “other hospitalities.   You might be able to negotiate more.   No honorarium.

Let me know if you are interested and I’ll put you in contact with the National Library in the Philippines.
I went to the Philippines in April under this arrangement and loved it.  The librarians there are marvelous and will take very good care of you.
