    Gold and Chinatown

    Binondo, Manila's Chinatown, is one of our favorite places to photograph. It is an easy place to go to if we want to have an instant lomowalk because it can provide different streets with various ambiance. And of course, it has plenty of food and restaurants to choose from if ever we get hungry along the way. But one word always comes to mind every time I hear the place "Binondo". Wedding.

    Manila Chinatown: The World's Oldest

    It's Chinese New Year. Ongpin Street the main thoroughfare of Manila Chinatown is a traffic jam of shoppers weighed downed by their bags of tikoy (rice cake), ube hopia (taro pastry), and ma chang (meat-filled sticky rice). Despite their heavy load, they continue to jostle, crane their necks and chirpily browse the sidewalks of trinket hawkers bargaining jade amulets, bracelets, and good luck charms in Fukien-accented Tagalog. Goldsmiths, vegetable vendors and traditional medicine sellers soon chime in.
