Here's a travel post of our whereabouts in Manila, I'm traveling with one of my bestfriends - Rosevie Taruc, and with my 2 sisters. We went mall hopping, commute around Manila through bus and LRT for the very first time and it was a really nice experiencing something new to a place. Nothing beats truly exploring a place than doing what the locals do. The Philippines is a really interesting place to be. Almost everything is so cheap! Cheap! Cheap! People speak different languages in different provinces, and the culture has this mixture of Muslims, Christians, Ifugaos, and a whole lot of others that I'm still dying to explore. I love my country, the only things I hate are the government, pollution, poverty and the weather, it's so darn hot and sticky. But I love the rest!
We were supposed to go ice skating but they backed out because they're chicken! haha
The people are like packed sardines, it's kinda funny watching them but I really didn't want to be one of those human sardines which we eventually had to deal with. I was not happy with it. We even had to travel for about 2 hours trying to look for this small ice scream shop and to try their liquid nitrogen ice scream. It was such a hard place to find. We rode the LRT, the jeepney and the tricycle getting there. Crazy!
But we finally managed to find the Iscreamist. Finally! Look at their menu that is like the Periodic Table of elements (and no I didn't looked that up the internet)
Their ice scream per scoop is a whopping P150!!! I absolutely love thier Nutella flavor! It tastes like heaven and their dragon's breath is a best seller. Some other flavors that we tried were Krispy Kreme, Malted Salted Caramel, Oreo's and Cream and Blueberry Cheese Cake. The 3 flavors were great as well except the Blueberry Cheese cake. Tastes sour! egh!
with Rosevie Taruc.. hey there fellow smurf!
Look at their dramatic smoke effect from the liquid nitrogen! ooooh aaah!!!
The dragon's breath and the smores = yum!!! You should try it! Really good! ^^,
Blueberry cheesecake = not so good! sorreh not sorreh!
That little ice scream shop located in the suburbs of Quezon UP Diliman.. so far away from Makati! huhu
The view from my mom's condo!The only thing I hate is the flood down the streets when it rains real hard.
At the Intramuros church, I'm not sure the exact name but it looks like I've just time traveled back through time, back when there were spaniards, kalesas and paved streets.
Look at the European inspired houses, I love it!
I love all things quaint and has a touch of vintage.
The courtyard similar to that of Italian houses. Feels like going back to Europe!
On our way to Chinatown to buy Eng Bee tin Hopia, eat Chinese food and gettin a Thai massage for only P200. ( and no it was not a gogo kind of masseur) I felt my body stretch out and relaxed preparing and conditioning myself for my US visa interview the following day. Good luck to me. Pray for me! :) Till here lovies. Love and Light.
