This is one of the main doors of The Manila Cathedral. I can’t help but admire the carvings and the details of this entrance door.

The Manila Cathedral Bell Tower

IMG_6428

Ignore the time on the clock since it’s not working. I actually took this picture around 1:00 PM. I also hate it when they put a big banner on the façade of churches. It ruins the aesthetic value of the building.

Nevertheless, The Manila Cathedral Bell Tower still looks magnificent.

Syokoy Bas-Relief

IMG_6453

When I saw this bas-relief in front of The Manila Cathedral in Intramuros, I don’t know what it is. For me, it resembles the head of a Syokoy (Merman). I also don't know if this bas-relief serves a function other than aesthetics. It’s a great piece of art nonetheless.

Statue of Legazpi and Urdaneta

XXIV Junio, MDLXXI (June 24, 1571) is the founding day of the Spanish City of Manila. This statue of Legazpi and Urdaneta (located along Roxas Boulevard, near Rizal Park, Manila) is erected to commemorate this historic event.

Jose Marti Y Perez (1853-1895) is the National Hero of Cuba. He’s a writer, poet, journalist, pedagogue, orator, politician and revolutionary. He actually have a monument along Roxas Boulevard (near Rizal Park), Manila, Philippines. I just stumbled upon it on my way to Intramuros.

I thought Che Guevarra is the National Hero of Cuba.

McDonald’s McCafé

IMG_6494

I’m blogging from my brother’s house in Palatiw, Pasig City. My parents house in Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City (where I live) is flooded up to the knee inside the house. It’s a bungalow house so we have to evacuate to my brother’s house.

We’re all safe now and we’re hoping that the flood waters will recede very soon. Life goes on.

BTW, aside from Starbucks, I’m also a fan of McDonald’s McCafé. This picture was taken at McDonald’s Olongapo branch last August 4, 2012.
