Saturday Market

Hello, my friends. It’s been a long time. I’m so happy for this weekend because it starts my one week vacation leave, woohoo! We were supposed to fly to Bohol, Philippines, next week. It was a rescheduled trip, which we had to cancel altogether because COVID cases here in the Philippines are still high. So with a heavy heart I asked our travel agent to convert the trip to a travel voucher.

This Saturday, D and I headed to the Saturday Market at Salcedo Village, Makati. We haven’t been here for a very long time, considering it’s just a few blocks from our city apartment. Heat and humidity was the main reason we opted to skip it for at least a couple of years in a row. Nowadays, with a mask and a faceshield we braved the humidity and walked to the Salcedo Saturday Market. Because what else is there to do, really?

And since I’m in a good mood in anticipation of a week long of not doing anything, I walked our city neighborhood with a fresh perspective. Let me share with you photos of our Makati neighborhood on a quiet Saturday morning.

And finally we got to the Salcedo Saturday market. Years ago, D and I rented an apartment in Salcedo Village, and the Saturday market was held in the park in front of our building. Now they have moved to parking lot behind the Paseo Center, fronting the Ayala Triangle park. We didn’t see the stalls we frequented before, but I’m glad I found a Vietnamese food stall which sells prawn salad. I can’t get enough of it – I’ll be back next week to get another!

Cheers to the weekend, my friends. Hopefully I’d get to catch up on my blogs this week. Be back soon!

  1. Welcome back! The surroudings of the Saturday market look to be empty, but very atmospheric with the metropolitan buildings and whatnot. My one-week vacation leave starts the following weekend, but I wish you wonderful travels of your own; I can’t wait to hear about them when you return!

    1. I don’t keep track of the news as they’re mostly a downer. From what I know the government’s trying to reopen the economy (but cases are still high). D and I are thinking of flying soon but the hassle of quarantine, swab tests, etc outweighs the motivation to go out and about.
