Pastry food trip at the Mandaluyong city hall complex.

Even when we’re practically broke last Sunday, Bern and I still found time to explore the food market in the Mandaluyong city hall complex. The city hall always sets up a flea market around Maysilo weeks before Christmas, bringing noisy crowds, gaudy lighting and heavy traffic in the area.

Because we hardly had money left, we were only able to buy a few pastries. Despite the price, they were actually quite good.
