  • Plaza Dilao

    Plaza Dilao
    Back when Christianity was outlawed in Japan Boat loads of refugees were taken in by the various Catholic groups in the 1600's. Most of these Persecuted Christians lived around the area known today as Paco, Manila. During the time of the Spanish occupation Paco was known as Plaza Dilao or Yellow Plaza. This was attributed to either the skin tone of most residents during the time or a plant that was abundant in the area. A statue of Dom Justo Takayama stands

    Do you want to see what the Chinese people have to offer in terms of architecture without having to literally fly all the way to China? If so, then visit the Chinese Garden located in Manila, right beside Luneta Park. But in the meantime, go through this post to see a sneak peek of it.
  • Kids Rule Where?

    Kids Rule Where?
    Kids rule where? I was intrigued as I stumbled upon this slogan so I immediately checked out their website, looked for their location and go there for a shoot.
  • Escolta Museum at Calvo Building

    Escolta Museum at Calvo Building
    Walking down turn-of-the-century Escolta was like a stroll though today's happening Bonifacio High Street or Eastwood City, where commerce and culture thrived as Manila embraced, willingly or otherwise, the 20th century. Elegantly dressed residents regularly visited this street to visit the numerous boutiques, shops and department stores that sold the latest clothes, cigars, jewelries and other fineries. Automobiles, horse-drawn carriages and Meralco tranvias (tramcars) shuttled them through this beautiful street. Indeed, it was "the" place to be seen.
  • Jeepney

    Jeepney
    There is no other transportation in the Philippines as ubiquitous as the Philippine jeepney. A hybrid of the American jeep, the Philippine jeepney came around the 1950's to fill in the need for mass transport. From the basic grayish silver color to fully "pimped out" complete with stereo blaring and disco lights inside, the jeepney is a sight to see! The jeepney by far, is the most useful, and most affordable means of mass transport found all over the country. Every jeepney has different routes, depending on the location, and has more access than the usual bus routes. Minimum fare is $0.15, but goes higher depending how far along the route you go, and it usually seats around 10 to 20 passengers, depending on its size and make. It can be flagged down wherever and whenever, on a busy street. Once you're inside, just hand over your fare to the driver - if you have change, the driver can multitask! He can count change, manoeuvre his way around traffic, pick up passengers - all by himself! Majority of jeepneys has no air-conditioning, and be prepared to get your hair messed up, or to even get sweaty as you experience the ride. It is truly a unique experience, only in the Philippines.
  • Bahay Nakpil-Bautista & The Boix House: Colonial Homes of Bautista Street

    Bahay Nakpil-Bautista & The Boix House: Colonial Homes of Bautista Street
    On the tamer side of Quezon Boulevard, the echoes of colonial domesticity and fortune still linger within the old homes of Quiapo. While many have suffered the slow death of neglect and the doom of uncaring government-sanctioned demolitions, some domiciles prove to be heritage conservation successes amidst the raucous of jeepneys, fruit vendors, political rhetoric and hawkers of bootlegged videos that clog the narrow streets that were once the most beautiful in all of Manila.
  • Luneta Park

    Luneta Park
    Unfairly labelled as a make out haven for lovers, Luneta is one of the most important places in Philippine history. One can't help but feel a sense of nationalism as you step into the park. The Rizal Monument signifies the exact location where the national hero was shot on the road to the country's independence. On a more positive note, it is a photographic haven with its harmonious mix of playgrounds, orchidariums and picnic areas. Wait for dusk and see the most magnificent sunset you'll see by the bay. All you need to do is to ride a Jeepney or a bus going to Quiapo and go down there itself.
  • Enchanted Kingdom Revisited

    Enchanted Kingdom Revisited
    A lot has been written about the Enchanted Kingdom. There is an abundance of photos of this theme park. So what’s one more review? I think it’s the personal experience that counts. Each visit is unique, the shots may look the same but it does evoke memories of the good time you had.
  • Intramuros

    Intramuros
    Formerly the infamous prison for rebels and dissidents during the old times, the walled city of Intramuros, the "city within a city", has withstood the test of time and still remains majestic as ever. Some of its splendor is lost due to urbanization not to mention the series of bombings experienced during the Second World War but it still retains its old worldly charm. Some of the moats and gates of old still stand while one of the many torture chambers has been converted to a coffee shop. How's that for ingenuity? For a tourist, a visit to Manila would be incomplete without at least a visit to the walled city. It is located near the Pasig River and most jeeps going to Quiapo will pass by there.
  • Clark Field

    Clark Field
    Last weekend, I had a chance to take some time to shoot at the open exhibit located at Clark Airbase. This place played a vital role during the world war. It is an airbase of the Filipino and American soldiers who sacrificed their lives for my country, the Philippines. Too bad it was raining when I had the shoot. I really wasn't able to capture all the things I wanted to.

    The ferry ride in Pasig River is become a viable alternative to go to either Pasig City or Manila. For those who aren’t in so much hurry, the 45-minute ferry ride is pleasant and relaxing and it’s nearly a grand tour of several of Manila’s architectural landmarks like the Malacañang Palace and the Post Office.

    Intramuros, located along the southern bank of the Pasig River, was built by the Spaniards in the 16th century and is the oldest district of the city of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Its name, in Spanish, Intramuros, literally "within the walls", meaning within the wall enclosure of the city/fortress, also describes its structure as it is surrounded by thick, high walls and moats. During the Spanish colonial period, Intramuros was considered Manila itself.

    University of the Philippines
    Already nearing its 100th year, the University of the Philippines still holds the accolade of being the premier university of the country. Symbolized by the Oblation, UP is characterized by its freedom for its students, which are notoriously labelled as activists and radicals because of the freedom given.
  • Saturday Salcedo Market

    Traveling Back in Time in Intramuros
    Intramuros is a district in Manila, Philippines where structures built hundreds of years ago still stand. Visiting Intramuros is like going back in time, with the old, weathered walls that once stood as a fort tell plenty of stories and ooze of culture.
