I’m guilty of not exploring my hometown enough, making me a tourist even in my own country. A few weeks back, I made plans with some friends to go on a Manila Day. We plotted out 3 spots we wanted to check out: Calle Wright, a newly-opened home-turned-gallery in Malate; Destileria Limtuaco in Intramuros, a museum of the longest-running distillery in the Philippines; and First United Building along Escolta. Despite the extreme heat on a Saturday afternoon, we found respite in a couple of airconditioned spots we got to visit. Loved going around the city and discovering new places. Would 10/10 recommend doing a Manila Day again! Enough chatter, onto the photos!
