The photo and food trip goes Chinese ... after photo shoot and food trips in Laguna we went to Binondo for the second round of photo shoots and food trippings.
still in the Philippines but it feels and looks different on this part of Manila...it's like you've been transported in China....with the many Chinese shops, restaurants and of course Chinoy or Filipino Chinese everywhere here
Noemi, Dee and me posing before a purple fire truck
the look inside Binondo church
Master Bogsie trying out Chinese super loaded goto
while going around, we notice this sugarcane drink, I saw this in Singapore but I did not try, so I tried it here....not so sweet, yummy when it's cold =)
deciding where to go next....
we went inside a Buddhist temple and found this performers taking a break...too bad we didn't get to see them perform =(
so I just tried their instrument instead
The temple is dedicated to Kuang Kong known as the God of War, Kuang Kong is favored by Chinese businessmen. And in this part of the temple you can find this huge red furnace where according to Jack they place their paper money and burn it with a prayer that believed to be reaching their departed love ones.
then we went to the European part of Manila hehe ... called as the IlsdeTuls or "Ilalim ng Tulay" in Quiapo...where you can find good buys of native products
of course...we also went to the famous Eng Bee Tin ... Hopia in different flavors
the trippers in Rizal Park
