Surprises in Manila


I’ve been living in Metro Manila for almost 12 years now yet I realize there is still a lot I do not know about it especially its capital, Manila. It actually took an invite from a friend from Cebu to go out of my apartment on a rainy day and realize that…

…San Agustin Church has a very dramatic altar. I’ve passed this church several times but it was only yesterday that I sat inside the church for awhile and absorbed its altar’s beauty.

12 years in Metro Manila yet I found myself stepping on this church for the first time.

…the church also has an adjacent museum that houses beautiful hallways and structures that could double as shooting location for Harry Potter films.

Such beautiful architecture!

We couldn't get enough of San Agustin Church's beautiful hallways.

…somewhere in its walls lies the remains of Juan Luna.  I could not fathom how he was able to create all his masterpieces despite his very short life.

…that the egg tart that is my bucket list in case I find myself in Macau is found in the small and crowded streets of Binondo.

Round 2! ☺️ Finally got to try this!
