Cartimar's calling

Tucked away between high-rise condominiums and small shops, almost hidden behind double-parked jeepneys and pedicabs, is a bygone marketplace that's easy to miss. Just one LRT ride to Gil Puyat Station, a five-minute walk, and you're welcomed by blue, green, and yellow banderitas connecting the vicinity of Cartimar.

From Dangwa with love

In the disorienting chaos that is Manila on a Saturday afternoon, we found ourselves somewhere along the intersection of Dos Castillas Street and Laong Laan Road. Hidden behind high-rise billboards and a crisp red and white Chowking signage is the famed Dangwa flower market, where the jeepney fumes eventually vanish into the refreshing scent of flowers.
