the little traveler at the event’s marquee

I mentioned about the Intramuros Pasyal Sunday in one of my previous posts and it is a good thing that the day coincided with our Postcrossing Philippines meet-up, so were able to hit two birds with one stone: meeting my postcrossing friends and enjoying one lazy Sunday in the streets of Intramuros!

Oh and one other thing, we were also present to show our support to two fellow postcrossers who decided to venture on selling postcards and other collectibles at the Sunday Fair. I got myself a couple of John Paul II  and Pheepoy FDC’s, since I already have copies of most of the postcards they have on sale that day!

notebooks, papers, rubber stamps + other items for arts + crafts

An entire portion of the Walled City was closed to traffic that weekend to give way to street musicians, some even had headphone amplifier at musicians friend and similar cool musical gears, interesting activities like zumba, food trucks, and an array of shops selling a multitude of different items, from local woven products, to handicrafts, rubber stamps, stationery  and other cute items, and these humongous bubbles, which my little man enjoyed very much that I just had to get him a set!

Mananzan Handicrafts, where an assortment of Filipiniana items are available, including hard-to-find Philippine map cards.

We also got the chance to explore some parts of Intramuros and visited Mananzan Handicrafts just outside of Fort Santiago, where we were able to get some of these hard-to-find Philippine map cards.

Where-To-Weekend: Intramuros Pasyal Sunday

Where-to-weekend, travel, Manila, IntramurosIf you have not made plans for the weekend yet, you might as well check out the Intramuros Pasyal Sunday with your family and friends, happening on 20 October, between 1pm to 9pm. This is in celebration of Indigenous People’s Month.

Dubbes as a FREE Car-less Sunday, Intramuros Pasyal Sunday will be all about walking the walled city with your family and friends. Participate in the Street Fair, listen to street musicians and drummers, shop from a bevy of street markets {and did I tell one of our Postcrossing Enthusiasts members will be there to sell postcards, FDC’s, stamps and other collectibles at very reasonable prices?}, and sample a number of mouth-watering street foods from different food trucks. You can even bring your bike and your dog, too! This is your chance to stroll around Manila like never before.

If I get lucky, I will be there with the little man to join our Postcrossing Meet-up and check out this event afterwards, so see there!

We’ve been waiting for this cool toy museum to open so I can tag along the little man + see the life size Lightning McQueen they have so you can probably imagine my delight when I found out that they will be open to the public for one day on 26 August! Unfortunately we have to be somewhere else the same day so I guess we just might have to wait for its formal opening next month.

I bet my little man will definitely enjoy the place, especially now that he’s getting to know more + more characters that can be found in this awesome toy museum, including Batman, Spiderman, Woody + Buzz, + the Incredibles! :)

I have always dreamed of bringing Jared abroad one day so he can see the life size McQueen in the US, but can you believe my luck? All I need now is to bring him to Las Piñas to see one! ;)
