Yep your eyes are not deceiving you, this is divisoria and that is the Tutuban Cluster Mall building you're seeing but it is empty (well not really empty but this place is usually crowded everyday). Photo taken yesterday when most people are still asleep after welcoming the new year and most malls are closed. New Year morning is the best time to roam the metropolis since i'll have the road all by myself, and mind you this is the only day and time you'll find this place empty.
I cant justify the diversity and color of Divisoria in this post but to those who doenst know yet, Divisoria or as what pinoys fondly call "Divi" is a big market place where you can find almost everything you'll ever need where the prices are lower (you can even haggle for the price). It is always bustling with activity and is easy to get lost here if you dont know your way around. Divisoria is best known for textile (at Juan Luna St.), fruit market (what they call "bagsakan" at Sto. Cristo), vegetables (at Asuncion), among other things. Divisoria is also a haven for wholesaler, recently malls have sprouted in the area such as the popular 168 Mall, Divisoria Mall, etc.
