      Most people come to the Philippines for the amazing beaches and strong culture. But as in every country, beauty can be found in every corner, even the dingiest ones. One of my favourite things to do is uncover and find this beauty. And usually it can be found at local markets, which I find fascinating in every country I visit.

      There is perhaps no better way for me to culturally immerse than to discover weird foods, find queer products and smile at happy local people while camera in hand I slowly peruse among the piles of things for sale. The following is a collection of my favourite photos taken on the streets of Manila and Puerto Princesa. Please relax and enjoy the eye-candy. line 4 JPEG
