Yesterday morning, the fiancee and I took a quick trip to Binondo (Manila’s Chinatown) to buy some pin lights for his Cavite house. Instead of bringing the car, we rode in his motorcycle to avoid road traffic and for better movement within the Chinatown complex. We found ourselves on Tomas Mapua St. which was lined with stores selling light fixtures of all kinds, shapes and sizes. We ended up buying a dozen pin lights from this store with a triumphant-sounding name, Success Lightings.
After our pin light shopping, I asked the fiancee to grab a bite at Dong Bei Dumpling. They’re famous among tourists and locals alike for their yummy steamed dumplings. It was our first time and we were impressed because our dumplings were made right on the spot. We also ordered fried rice and a noodle soup to go with our dumplings. Everything was good. And quite affordable, too.
I would have wanted to check out the hopias of Eng Bee Tin but the fiancee was so eager to get back home and catch this documentary on TV. Maybe, next time.
