Walk With Me: Victor Hugo “Manila Day”
Hello Loves!
So last Tuesday we decided to take a trip down memory lane and have a “Manila Day”. We hopped on down to Victor Hugo which is the "Pinoy" area here in Paris. Let me take you through our trip…
While we were looking for the big filipino mart we passed by a delicious cafe that had such amazing treats that I couldn’t help but share. I forgot to get the name (I know, bad blogger) but it was just by the metro stop of Victor Hugo, just around the circle.
DON’T THEY LOOK DELICIOUS?????? 
So after walking around in circles trying to find the big pinoy store and realising we literally walked in a circle, we decided to go to this quaint pinoy mini-mart which is the first one you see upon exiting the metro station.
It doesn’t have A LOT! That’s why it’s called a mini-mart. LOL But they did have a good variety of products. We got some junk food, some toiletries, mang tomas, mama sita’s BBQ marinate, longganisa, tocino and some other things. The people running the store were friendly and it kinda felt like we were back in Manila because we were able to talk to others in filipino. It was nice.
We then decided to take a stroll after shopping and we came across this beautiful church. I know absolutely nothing about it except the name but I found the architecture to be very interesting.
Chapelle Notre Dame de la Cite Paroissiale
And of course our "Manila Day" wouldn’t be complete without a starbucks hang out. I know, usually I would say don’t go to starbucks because it’s absolutely not worth it and there are so many amazing cafes here in Paris, but we just had to make an exception; I had a huge craving for a frappuccino!
And in spirit of our trip down memory lane, we topped it off with a traditional pinoy breakfast the following day, Longsilog. SO YUMMY! Longsilog is basically short for longganisa, sinangag (garlic rice), and itlog (egg), “long-si-log”, get it? (of course you fellow pinoy readers do, so you’re not counted in the question! LOL)
So that was our "Manila Day" loves! Paris has amazing food. Such variety of quality fresh products but sometimes you just need a taste of home. I promise to post more travels on Paris but I just wanted to dedicate this one to me missing home. As always, thanks for stopping by loves! Until next time!
With Love,Cesca
