Enjoying Manila With Carlos

Carlos doing his thing
Taking a break from the usual make-up posts just cause I enjoyed this tour so much. Last weekend I signed up to join the Intramuros tour by Carlos Celdran. I was with my niece Colette, her boyfriend Justin and my sister Jika. It's Colette and Justin's first time in the Philippines so it's perfect to take them with me. They loved it and kept talking about the experience until we dropped them off at their condo at the fort.

The tour started at Santa Clara street with all of us singing the Lupang Hinirang, the perfect introduction :) Then we walked around Fort Santiago, stopping once in a while to sit on the grass to watch the one man theatre that is Carlos Celdran. After that we were told that we could choose to either walk, ride a kalesa or a pedicab for free to the location of the old Ateneo de Manila which was just a couple of blocks away. The tour ended at Barbara's where Carlos treated everyone to a cup of halo-halo. I honestly could go on this tour again and again without getting sick of it, it's just that good. I can't wait to watch Livin' La Vida Imelda when my schedule free's up. For tour dates and rates visit Carlos' website here.

you have to love the passion this guy has for what he does
