I haven’t written anything about this post since I posted it 4 days ago. I’m sorry.
These photos were taken last February 23, 2016. Ino and I somewhat celebrated our 81st monthsarry or 6 years and 9 months anniversary in Intramuros, Manila. We initially planned to process my papers at the Archdiocesan Chancery Office Arzobispado de Manila for my baptismal certificate’s amendment. We also planned to go to the church (where I had my baptism) on the same day.
We had lunch at KFC nearby Manila Cathedral. Then we went to Intramuros to kill time. We still had about an hour before the Archdiocesan Chancery Office Arzobispado de Manila opens, so we grabbed the only chance we’ve got and decided to go to Intramuros and spend our monthsarry there.
I have been longing to go to Intramuros for a while. I actually told him that since we don’t have enough money to spend for our anniversary this year (because we are saving for the weddding,) we could just go on a date at Intramuros instead.
We were actually planning to go this May. However, since the opportunity arose, we decided to just take our time and enjoy the beauty of Intramuros during our special day.
Here are some of the photos that I took using my LG G3 camera.
It actually feels great to be on a date with someone you love. It also felt great to be in a place that you hoped to visit for a long time. I was actually elated when I’ve come to realize that I’m not only in a historical place, but also I was with a boyfriend who will also become my fiance in over a year.
I think there’s still another place in Intramuros that we should visit. It was a certain area that we visited on our field trip when I was in grade school or high school. I remembered that there were kalesa(s) at that place. I could be dreaming or just remembering something from a movie or a TV episode. I’m not really sure. I think we have to go back and try to find it again.
There’s a feeling of contentment when I visit historical places or museums. I guess, I may not be as adventurous as the others but the nationalist in me really enjoyed this simple getaway. I hope to go back soon with my husband. 🙂
