Popular with the students from the UST, is this pop-up store in the street selling hair clips, headbands, coin purse, wallets to rings, necklaces and mobile phone cases.

 Earrings in all colors and shapes.

Atin Ito Pancit Malabon

There are days when you crave for a specific merienda, and today was one of those days. So we begin the search for the best pancit malabon in the area. We start with Atin Ito  Pancit Malabon located at the corner of Don Quijote and Piy Margal Streets (A few blocks away from Dominican school along Lacson).

The location was pretty easy to find, although there aren't any jeeps passing in these streets. You can walk from Lacson (when you take a jeep going to Tayuman) or from Vicente Cruz St. (when you take the jeep going to Lardizabal). And as you can see they have a number listed for deliveries.

 The place is clean.
 And the prices are fairly cheap.

The serving proportion is also good, and the meal in total was ok. There was something lacking in the taste, but that's just me. It may still be worth the try.
I'm giving this place a rating of 3 out of 5.


I'm recently fascinated by people (mostly men) in the streets of Sampaloc playing chess. Old and new alike, chilling out with the most beloved board game. 

I also recently put up my instagram account: mimitecson where I mostly put updated photos of the street and hashtag #sampalocscenes. It would also be great if you guys can send in some photos or use the hashtag too, whenever you tweet or post photos online.
