It was my first time to “celebrate” Chinese New Year and I loved it! I was with my WWFs (Whatever Whenever Friends) in Binondo, Manila yesterday to enjoy some Chinese food, buy hopia, and watch the dragon dance. Ang daming dragon! Nakakatuwa!
Our first stop was supposedly Wai Ying Restaurant in Benavidez St., Binondo but because of some unfortunate event and a little bit of stupidity, my friends were already in the resto waiting for their food while I was in *drum roll please* Tondo. Hahaha! I had no choice but to walk going to Ongpin. The walk seemed like forever! But when I reached the place, it was soooo festive, the exhaustion I was feeling just went away.
After witnessing some Chinese New Year traditions, I finally saw Wai Ying. Now, don’t expect the place to be your high-end restaurant. But do expect delicious, yummy, sumptuous food! I love love love Chinese food and Wai Ying lived up to my expectations.

Ang dami ko bang kinain? Please don’t judge me! Hahaha!
And oh, before I end this post, I’d like to introduce to you the Binondo Girls for a day! MVP Lou, runner-up Jona (yeah, that’s me!), and third placers Joanna and Nash.
Yay I love my friends! <3
