Chinatown

Hubby and I didn’t make any plans for last weekend and finding ourselves with a full day of nothing was quite…rare. So we hopped in the car and drove around the metro, where we had a quick museum tour, and decided to drive further to Binondo.
No, this is not Hongkong, but the establishments here all have Chinese translations

Binondo Church, where Lorenzo Ruiz served as a sacristan.

Looks like they repainted the ceiling as it was much brighter than from my last visit here

Chinese food – not so bad, but not so good either. Certainly didn’t leave me wanting for more. But the dumplings are ok – the wrappings are sweet.

And of course, when you’re in Binondo, don’t forget to bring home some goodies from Eng Bee Tin.

Colourful siopao!

Lookie, they have the “lite” version. I like!
