WW: Quezon Memorial Circle

Early morning exercises (tai chi by the looks of it) at Quezon Memorial Circle

Here in Quezon City, we have a national park and shrine called the Quezon Memorial Circle. It is called such because at its center is a mausoleum containing the remains of Manuel L. Quezon, the second President of the Philippines (and from whom the city derived its name), and his wife, First Lady Aurora Quezon.

Since the park is quite peaceful in the early morning, there are many people who go there to exercise, meditate or just plain enjoy the early morning sunshine.

Oh well, not so wordless after all.

Have a great day!

My beloved Quezon City

I grew up in Quezon City. In fact, my whole life (30 years and counting), I spent living in Quezon City. Despite the walang kuwentang mayor, Sonny Belmonte, who’s always natutulog sa kangkungan, the city is quite charming and is the center of Metro Manila.

The big malls are situated in the different parts of this city. SM North Edsa, Trinoma, SM City Fairview, SM Cubao, Gateway and other smaller malls. Most of the government offices are also in Quezon City. Big hospitals like St. Luke’s are also within the city. Some universities are also based on QC. So you can just imagine the convenience of living in this chaotic city of mine.

Oh, did I mention that establishments like bars, restaurants, and other night establishments are in Timog and Tomas Morato which are both in Quezon City?

I will write more about my beloved city in my next posts.
