Binondo

Filed under: binondo,churches — journeys @ 12:59 pm

I’ve actually snapped some pictures in binondo already last April.  I was originally just going to Times Trading to shop for some of my scrapbooking needs and since the church is just a few steps away I decided to visit it as well and take some pictures.  Good thing I had my camera with me.

 

 

 

 

The church is really nice but the surrounding is just not too picture friendly.  It’s a challenge to take pictures of the church without having extra buildings or electricity wires being included in the picture.

It was just a short photoshoot since I was already tired that day, but vowed to return…more prepared and ready!

Going home, I had to take a jeepney to the Manila City Hall where I can grab a jeepney going home (Project 6) .  Since I was there already, I also decided to take a couple more pictures.

 

 

Hopefully next time I can also cover Intramuros!

Big Binondo Food Wok

Filed under: binondo,tour — journeys @ 5:09 pm

I know this is super delayed post, but anyways, I just want to share with you the Big Binondo Food Wok that I previously joined. But don’t expect to read where the places we went to since I don’t want to spoil it for those who want to join the tour as well.

The group met at the Binond Church at around 2pm. It was easy to recognize the groups since we were all wearing red. I was with a big group since there’s this clan who was with the tour. It was really fun since they were nice people and you could tell that they were well travelled since they would share once in awhile since nuggets of travel tips and where to go and what food tastes good.

The tour was really very informative, absolutely not in a boring way. Ivan was really very animated which is really makes it very effective for catching our attention. Since we had some foreigners with us, he dared them to eat balut. Good thing, they were good sports and rose to the challenge.

See some of my foodie pictures in my other blog.
