Walkathon 082712

August 31, 2012

With a single roll of film and the eagerness to explore, We wander the other side of Pasig and looked back at the rich history of Manila through the Plastic Lens.

Start here!

Say hello to this 50-year old Original Savory Restaurant along Quintin Paredes. 

An abandoned building along (?) haha! I forgot.

The El Hogar Filipino Building. 
A beaux-art building situated beside Pasig River on Muelle Dela Industria in Binondo. It was built as a wedding gift back in 1914. 
Seeing this kind of buildings makes me wanna go back in time to see the beauty in its own period.

Finish Line!

Thoughts after the walk:

1. Every street has its own niches- Food, Shopping, Stainless Steel works, Lighting
2. Even the smallest streets are dominated by vehicles- It's supposed to be walkable!
3. Who says History is boring?
4. Buildings let you travel back in time
5. Realized that abandoned places and things are the things that interest me.

Next adventure, please :)
