Please note:
I very much appreciate my articles and photos appearing on fellow bloggers' sites, popular broadsheets, and local broadcast news segments, but I would appreciate even more a request for permission first.
Thank you!

Thank you for being my "eye" to downtown Manila. Audio na lang ang kulang at parang nanduon na ako LOL.

Thanks for the slice-of-life shots, Eric!

I particularly looked at the picture of the horse...they should wash his garland once in a while to make him look spiffy ;-).

The only thing I really find shabby with Manila are the spaghetti electric wires---as well as isn't it like walking under probable electrocution? Sorry for the sordid thought...but I usually find myself thinking like this when I'm there! :-(

Looking at those mangoes made my mouth water. I miss those green, crunchy and sour mangoes. Specially with "bagoong".

I almost thought we have given up horse drawn coaches (kalesa). I can't help not to pity the horses. Even when i was just a child, i would cry when the kalesa is burdened too much by people and when it is being whipped.

My pleasure, bertN! I truly enjoy taking random shots of the areas that I visit to share with fellow bloggers.

By the way, besides the audio, how about scent-o-rama? I remember a few years ago when a group of people were trying to capture scent and transmit online. I guess, they weren't successful.

This was the very first calesa horse I had ever seen adorned with a garland, Bernadette. He looked so cute ... hehehe.

Speaking of those noodle-like wires on our street posts, they actually discouraged me from taking pictures of our houses and buildings ... ayayay.

Whenever I ride a calesa, EM, I always tell the kuchero to not whip his horse lest he doesn't want a tip from me. But most kucheros I've notice hit the wood alongside the horse just to make a sound and communicate their intention.

There are many more mangoes being sold in Manila streets :)

You're welcome, Tina. Since they weren't frozen, I guess, they came from the nearby Bulacan area.

My pleasure, Panaderos. It's my subtle reminder to fellow compatriots to come home for a visit someday soon :)
