was finally able to join a walk this way tour… carlos celdran was already doing the preliminaries when i arrived but i made it to the national anthem. that’s him in the middle, i think he was throwing ixora flower petals at that point, what a jolly person, haha.

so the walking tour was divided into three parts, which of course started with the spanish colonization followed by the american occupation and ended with world war 2. we roamed around fort santiago and intramuros for the tour with our theatrical guide, so that’s about three costume changes for him.

i didn’t exactly like philippine history when i was studying because we were made to memorize all those dates… had my teachers explained the consequences of the war or why rizal was chosen as our national hero instead, that class would have been more interesting. and those things were discussed during the tour, in a super fun way too!

i took a lot of pixxors during our break, it was lucky that we started late in the afternoon when it wasn’t so humid, you could snoop around the gates and barracks or look at curious sentries, follow rizal’s footsteps, and even watch snoozing cats.

carlos celdran’s props… i sneaked around when no one was looking, teehee. we all loved the chocnut including the foreigners.

our guide gave his best performance during his discussion about the japanese occupation and the war, when it was all death and destruction, he kind of cried in the end too, and for some reason, i found that so moving or mabilis lang talaga ma-antig ang puso ko, haha.

we ended the day with halo halo, i knew it had milk but surprisingly i didn’t smell the milk that much so i was able to eat it. i kept the bottle, haha. so eun, if you’re looking for a bit of a history refresher with free chocnut and halo halo, carlos celdran’s walk this way tours is a good one… he sometimes wears bunny headbands too, teehee! will try his other tours soon.

yun lang.
