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! :D
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
