Today's Museo de Makati was once the municipal hall, serving the town from 1918 to 1961.

Makati
Back in the heart of Poblacion. Long time no see, Church of Saints Peter and Paul.

This one dates back to 1620 and is home to the Virgen de la Rosa de Macati (brought from Acapulco c. 1700s). It's one of the more romantic church façades I've seen in the Philippines. Plus the Plaza Cristo Rey offers nothing but birdsong and introspection. Can't believe there's a busy road a few meters away.

The Romanesque church of Nuestra Señora de Gracia (completed in 1629) was the center of faith of then the Chinese community of San Pedro de Macati.

Didn't know that Makati historically had its own Chinatown, and it was in Guadalupe. Cool, no?

I picked the church's side view as primary photo because it looks like it can be a set for Game of Thrones. Who hasn't watched Episode 3 yet? Me, sadly.

At Plaza Bonifacio. Where I stood was a reclaimed area from the storied Bitukang Manok. Sad that the said creek was reduced to its current state.

Anyway, enjoy the view. Hope the LGU's learn to highlight all historic edifices and locations by hiding the wires. Spaghetti looks good on a plate but not on electric posts.

The best-maintained Spanish era mansion in Pasig can still be found in the town square.

Magnificent view of the Pasig City Museum from across the plaza.

I'm still thinking about how and where they dried their laundry when this mansion was still an actual residence. I mean, the building's got a 360 degree façade with seemingly no space for clotheslines. Hmmm.

Pasig City's old town center, Rosario District, can be romantic.

And hot, too. Sizzling, SWELTERING hot especially at noontime.

The heart of Pasig City is the historic Immaculate Conception Cathedral-Parish, with the current building completed c. 1760.

Mother Mary with her billowy robes on the church façade's pediment and graceful lean feels like a Catholic adaptation of Botticelli's Venus.

Don't you think so?

Underrated modern blocs I saw today:

1. The Development Academy of the Philippines and its lovely brise-soleil doing its job filtering the sunlight.

2. That eccentric, glass-clad pyramidal San Miguel Building which I always marvel at as a kid when passing Ortigas Center.
