Images of Manila

Last Sunday, my whole family went to Ama (grandmother in Chinese) to celebrate her 80th birthday. 🙂

We took her to Aling Tonya’s, a dampa restaurant in Macapagal for lunch. We have tried eating there before and the service was fine. That Sunday, however, their service was terrible. Slow slow slow people. I don’t know how long we were waiting for our food but it was looong!

Anyhoo, while we were driving around Metro Manila, I took pictures of the “historical” places (and many not so historical ones) we passed by. It was a lot of fun! 🙂

Here are the best images. 🙂

Street Vendors of Recto and Binondo, Manila: It’s a wild world here!

Street Vendors in Manila: They sell anything from trash bins, to back rests, toys, ANYTHING!

Here are images from all around Manila.
