ON A DRIZZLY RIZAL DAY, we took a lovely walk that way with Carlos Celdran. The old walled city of Intramuros, while not instantly picturesque, echoed of a bleak, colorful and golden past that we locals tend to take for granted. Anyone for Pearl of the Orient or Paris on the Prairie?
It was a lovely afternoon too, spent with friends old and new, eager to take in some heritage before a generous intake of pancit, kare-kare and salsa monja, amongst other much enjoyed sides and courses at dinner in the Legardas' ancestral home.
Kudos to Lara Santico, pictured above, for spotting the rainbow.
