My first trip to Binondo.
Yes, I am a newbie when it comes to visiting places in Manila. I admit that I've only been to Ongpin once, and that was this Sunday. I went to Binondo yesterday with DA POGI and it was my first time too. You can call me an old Manila virgin.
I ate at Jollibee Binondo, where they have Chinese newspapers and bought hopia in Eng Bee Tin. Walked through the streets clutching my bag to me because my mom kept on telling me to be careful as if streets were laden with pickpockets. Went to Binondo Church and found it to be surprisingly clean and without any trash or beggars near it. The only thing I didn't like was the smell of horse poo going around because of the number of kalesas in the streets.
Sometimes you have to experience something first hand.
I thought that it would be a nightmare. It was a breeze.
Can't wait to go to Divisoria.
