Old. Vintage. Classic – Three words, one beautiful City called Intramuros. Strolling around the walled city of Manila is like you’re doing a time travel. You’ll feel like living in that era before. We started our adventure at 9 in the morning. Our first stop was in Manila Cathedral. Just upon entering, the historical church and the fascinating interior will really make you smile. How much more if you will pray? surely, you’ll found the love that you’ve been looking for! ♡
Second stop: San Agustin Church. Did you know that San Agustin Church was the only one left intact after the World War II? Yes, it is! and it is the oldest of all churches in our home, Philippines. This Church is very in demand for wedding ceremonies. While walking through the aisle, your imaginations are starting to throw ideas about your future dream wedding. In God’s perfect time. 💏
Third stop: Memorare. The memorial is a tribute and dedicated to all the innocent victims of WWII. The female figure on the right side is a rape victim.
Fourth stop: GALERIA DE LOS PRESEDENTES DE LA REPUBLICA PILIPINA. This is where you can see the faces of our former Philippine Presidents. Who do you think did a great job and stand as a good leader in our country?
Fifth stop: Campsite of Douglas McArthur. His campsite is made of bricks and turned as a gold course now.
Sixth stop: Casa Blanca. This is our last stop because of the heavy rain. But we didn’t regret stopping by in this place because there are a lot of things you can do. There’s a souvenir shop, Travel and tours agency, restaurant, events place, musuem, and most especially, the Picasso of Manila. This is Cheska’s favorite experience in Intramuros because we got the chance to meet people who paints about the beauty of our country and all its treasure.
Wandering around Intramuros wouldn’t be possible because of KUYA RAY. He is our tour guide and his humour is really contagious to the point that we’re just laughing while riding in his pedicab because he keeps on saying that we’re “aggressive” because every time he mentions other beautiful places, our reaction would be “woooow!! punta tayo dyan!!!” then he’ll reply “wait! wait! wait!! huwag aggresive!” 😂 He’s really a silly but nice at the same time because he is helping to save our mother earth. He collects plastic bottles and sell it. He earns money + BIG help to our nature. What a nice person. =) If you’re planning to wander and explore INTRAMUROS, just contact kuya RAY at 0908-463-3960. We are very sure that you will enjoy your journey in Intramuros because of Kuya Ray.
It such a delight to meet new people like them because we are learning something. Learnings that will shape us into the best person that we should be and the learnings that will be treasured in our life forever.
