Mission: To buy a new Christmas Tree
Accomplices: H and driver, Raul
Time Limit: 30 minutes
Budget: You won't believe it!
With the Christmas crowd slowly creeping into downtown Manila and the rest of Manila for that matter, I, the crowd-hater did not have much time. Out on our Christmas tree mission, just driving into Chinatown was already almost scary. BUT I still managed to admire Binondo Church which is one of my favorite churches.....
Thank, God we were able to find a tree quickly. (though in Divisoria) While driving through Chinatown though, the purple tease that is Eng Bee Tin struck a hungry stomach nerve and we headed back. Eng Bee Tin of course is purple yam/ ube heaven and more! Faster!!! Traffic is building! What happened? We took a longer time in Eng bee Tin than the Christmas tree place. Shame! Shame! haha! But look how happy H was....

|Our first time to try their siopao with purple dough. I loved it since I am a fan of ube (purple yam) I know it reminds me of a purple Oscar the Grouch. Ack!|
|This guy was the lone cook at the small store in front of the bakery but he can cook....fried rice, lomi soup and everything on skewers!|
|Like this scallop thingy yum yum!!!|

How's our tree? - In our living room, standing proud and shamelessly untrimmed.....I think we will go back to Eng Bee Tin faster than trimming the tree. Haha!
