Manila, Manila

was talking to my friend from the province who had never been to Manila. i told him, that if ever he'll visit Manila, i'll show him to places. then it occurred to me, where will i bring him. though i've been living in Manila, all my life. i don't know where to take him. honestly, what came to my mind was Ayala Center. because that's where i usuall am and it has everything, from malls to a museum. but i don't think i can consider it a tourist spot. actually, when i told him about showing the places of Manila, i was actually thinking of Baguio, , Tagaytay, Corregidor. hahaha. (fyi, these places are not in Manila, they are in nearby provinces). it's just later on that i realized, Manila also has some Filipino tourist spots on its own. Rizal Park, Intramuros, Museong Pambata, Quiapo, Divisoria, Araneta Center, and UP Diliman, to name a few.

wow! besides of beautiful faces (ahem!), manila can boast a lot of sites that is still unique and has a rich history.

Hi Tin-Tin. What about National Museum? Haven't been to Baywalk but heard it's really nice. Personally, I just miss the malls. :)

toe: i'll be honest with you. i thought national museum was already closed that's why i didn't include it in my list. hehe.

neko: you really can;t live without coffees

ayie: you're right. and i just didn't realize it. maybe because i'm so used to manila :)

Try bring your friend to Chinatown. There's food, and great buys too aside from being a part of history. And it's also near Intramuros. :-)

BTW, Thanks for dropping by my place. :-)
