February 2, 2011 – Ongpin has been one of our fave place in Manila since we got inclined to feng shui   addiction. Ongpin or Binondo is the little Chinatown found in Manila surrounded by shopping haven Divisoria, Carriedo and the subsequent streets for merchandise/goods. We were headed to Divisor and made a short stop in Binondo to purchase some raw materials for a project, as well as to score some chinese “anik-anik” [trinkets].
From the stretch of Juan Luna St. you’ll find the Shrine of San Lorenzo Ruiz, turn to church left side [Paredes St.], it’s the start of strutting Chinese New Year feel. Taking the ride yearly forecasts and fruits collection for the chinese new year traditions. They say it sweeps away bad lucks and cures for life enhancement. These are just keen steps to psychologically pump one’s determinations. To motivate oneself thru the help of personal praying, positive thinking and hardwork. This is my photoblog adventure as we walk through the streets of Binondo.

Eng Bee Tin branches are all jam-packed with buyers of tikoy and hopia. Surely, an Eng Bee Tin Hopia is one of the famous “pasalubong.” Consider it’s Chinese New Year, the demand/supply is outrageous! Tikoy cost PhP 200 per box [plain or flavored], Hopia cost PhP 44.00 per piece [variants: Ube-Queso, Ube-Langka, Monggo, Buko Pandan. It’s the least I can remember, there more flavors available. ]

While the wait is on, dragon dancers are everywhere along the streets. They come in different forms, colors, race and age. We spotted some Bombays humming in the streets, funny is that they have their own red “ampao” envelope.
