Places to Visit in Makati

When I was in grade school, I remember my parents bringing us to Makati City. As a kid, the tall buildings look taller, and everything is just so big and amazing. Fast forward to now, Makati is a place I go to work every day for the past two years with hundreds even thousands of other Filipinos. Yesterday, Jomar and I had our first Saturdate for the year. We decided that we would be like tourists in Makati. Here is a list of places of interest that we had or are going to visit: Places of Worship Nuestra Senora de Gracia Parish Church - Who would have thought that in a neighbourhood known to be full of informal settlers, there would be a gem? One of the oldest Church in Makati City is near Guadalupe behind the Our Lady of Guadalupe Minor Seminary. A lot of couple from all over Metro Manila decide to get married here. Also, according to a Foursquare tip, a lot of local TV shows and movies are shot here. To get here, go down from Guadalupe Station and walk along Bernadino Street.

SeeQC: Quezon City Travel Guide

I love to travel. But most of the time it sucks when I don't have enough resources (money) and time to visit places. Instead of being depressed and sulking in my room, I realize that I don't need to go far when in fact I could be a tourist in my city. With that, Jomar and I made the SeeQC App  - See Quezon City (alpha). Screenshot of SeeQC ( The app is straightforward. It displays all the touristy places according to the Quezon City Website . We also decided to group sites by category like museums, gardens, monuments, etc. This app is in progress, so your feedback is very much welcome.
