How's Fort Santiago?

If God permits, I will be able to travel to Manila on the 14th, this month. I have my agenda there and the plan is to stay there for two days. During my stay, I would like to pay a quick visit to Fort Santiago. I kinda' miss the place and I am curious to check how it is today. Are there changes to the place? Are the changes for the better? Is it more beautiful now? Is the historic spirit still there?

Here's looking back to our Fort Santiago tour years ago:


Climbing to the house of the Spaniards. What i really saw inside was arts, decors, furniture and interiors of 300 years ago. 

Canons. This one is the real leftover of war. 



Striking a pose by our National Hero's monument. Thanks to him for being one of those who suffered just to freed our country from Spanish slavery. 

That tour ended with a picture by the Pasig River. It looks clean doesn't it. I wonder how the river looks today.

Waiting For The Sunset With My Doggies

I had a great time bonding with dogs one afternoon. I wanted to watch the sunset while sitting on the seawall, indulging myself with the beauty of the sky kissing the ocean. It was a very scenic view! Watching the sunset was more fun with my dogs with me.

My dogs would follow me wherever I do. They just love accompanying me and I do love their company the most. They are like real babies who would follow their momma wherever.

Here's me and Chiz on the seawall. The other two, Chewy and Candy were scared to climb up with us. They were maybe scared thinking I would give them a good cold bath in the sea as what I get when I get the chance. It was a one lovely afternoon for all of us. Later, after the sunset watching, I took a plunge. The sea was just too hard for me to resist.
