binondo food trip bloggers

i was staring at the stamps displayed at the Manila Post office building while waiting for the chosen bloggers who were about to join the Binondo food trip using Old Manila Walks Binondo Food Wok map. one by one they arrived and i was actually excited to meet them. i requested them to introduce themselves and their blog. then i finally revealed to them one of the main goals for this food trip and that is to savor and rate the food that we will be trying out.
in this post, i'll introduce the bloggers and their background why they were chosen for this food trip.

blog: cher cabula's mindbox
blogger: cher
why she was chosen: never been on a Binondo food trip but heard so much about it and expects a food trip in Binondo as a sensational experience for the taste buds.
the challenge: an interior designer by profession, how will she find the usual Binondo Chinese restaurant?

blog: organized chaos
blogger: josh
why he was chosen: a blogger who used to work in a restaurant. he can give us a perspective of someone who came from the same field and as he says he'll even wear his dragon shirt for the occasion.
the challenge: he's allergic to crowd and Binondo will definitely be crowded.

blog: recession fun
blogger: ann and arch
why she was chosen: she needs an escape and an excuse to prepare something special for her special friend... feels like she can find that special something for him in China town.
the challenge: she says "It would be a nice thing to do on the double jeopardy date of Feb.14 being Heart's Day and Chinese New Year!" a crowded Binondo and the noise of the Chinese new year might not be the best place for a hearts day. let's see.

blog: beyond toxicity
blogger: docgelo
why he was chosen: has been to Binondo many times for a food trip but finds it more special by being in Binondo on a new year chasing dragons. can rate the food in comparison to the other food that he tried before.
the challenge: won't be his usual fun and sweet food trip as he won't be with his wife and son on a valentine's day.

blog: no spam no virus no kiddin
blogger: chyng
why she was chosen: quite normal for her to be out on a food trip and even did the very challenging Sagada cave connection. wants her camera Harvey to meet my camera Fang.
the challenge: after all the tasty food trips in Sagada and the sumptuous food that she's been eating around the metro, a Binondo food trip will definitely be different...the five who will join me in reviewing the Binondo Food Wok map and explore the food and the culture of the Chinoys that we've embraced through time. the Binondo Food walk begins here.

Parang ibang bansa na rin tong Binondo. Parang may aura talaga ng Chinese descent.
