old manila walks tour

Last Sunday, i joined the Chinese New Year editon of the BIG Binondo Food WOK! A special WOK-ing edition of Old Manila Walks. From the website, they describe themselves as "a bunch of passionate, obsessive and saucy ‘street walkers’(!) determined to walk and talk about one thing: the history, the culture and the heritage plus everything over, under, outside, inside this city of our affections - Manila." Ain't that something? :)

I wanted to join this Binondo tour for the longest time because i've heard great recommendations and read about it but i have been busy and when i finally had the chance i grabbed it, and a very nice timing if i may say since i get to join the tour on the day before the chinese new year, which made it more exciting.
Meet Ivan Man Dy - our great tour guide who is very nice. I really had fun while nibbling our way through Chinatown, thanks to this great chap! I'll be posting more of my wok-ing tour, i recommend you guys join one of his tours to learn something new and appreciate our history. If you want to join one of his tours check out the schedule here.
