It was my best friend's first time in Manila - and of course, I have to show her around. Her hubby, Paul, just took the NCLEX to hopefully join his family who had been living in New York for years already...

Marikina was one of our must-sees. Since we only had a day to roam around, we were only able to see glimpses of the city. I had to show them were the largest shoes were (as I remembered seeing them years ago, hehe)..

From Banawe Avenue (we had to visit the nuns in Manresa), we took the taxi to Riverbanks and went straight to the mall's shoe displays and there it was - shining as ever - the largest shoes in the world :)

Paul had this wonderful idea of comparing the normal shoe to the very large shoe - of course, Clang and I had to oblige :)

see the difference? :)

 

well, we wanted to see more shoes. next stop? the shoe museum, of course, home of the very controversial Imelda's shoes. sad to say tho, we were not allowed to take photos inside.. so if you wanna know how they look like? go visit the museum for just 20 pesos. :)
