Before weekend markets, there was Carvajal Street in Manila

When I go to Carvajal Street, Binondo, Manila.  I would remember my summer apprenticeship in G&W.  Their office is located in Quintin Paredes, and its a stroll away from food paradise Carvajal Street.

  I used to go there during my lunch hour and look at whats for sale. And my hour would  pass by so quickly.

Quick Snack is the best place  to have my lunch because I cannot have enough of their fried lumpia, kuchai-ah and cha mi.  I admit I'm a sucker for Chinese comfort foods.
This holiday week, we visited Carvajal Street to ogle at these lovely sausages and meatballs.

Before weekend markets,  EVERYDAY is market day here.

These flowers are just perfect decorations for the holidays.
Its a special time to buy these dalandan encrusted mini pineapple home decor.   They are said to bring good fortune this New Year's Day.  Sorry you can't eat them.

We just had our lunch, or else I would have bought these Filipino desserts.  Sapin sapin, Biko, Suman, Pinipig, kutchinta, all on display.
We also found these Taro bulbs.

 During New Year, Taro bulbs are placed on a bowl of uncooked rice with coins and displayed inside the house.

They are meant to welcome the new year that brings forth good harvest or fortune.

Taro bulbs are worth a fortune in itself this time of year and its not meant to be eaten.  Just for decor.
