Isa sa mga unang destinasyon na aming pinuntahan ang Binondo Church.
I been here so many times sa Binondo Church kung di ako nagkakamali eh 4 times na simula yung umpisahan ko last year para dun sa Chinese New Year, but i guess iba pa rin kasi ang kagandahan nito.
Lalong-lalo na ang mga nakakabilib na painting nito sa mga ceiling.
Pero bago ko umpisahan ang lahat..
Bakit nga ba nagkaroon ng Simbahan sa Binondo, eh di ba mga Chinese ang mga nakatira dun, so meaning more on Buddhism ang mga tao dun..
But according to wikipedia "Binondo Church, also known as Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz , this church was founded by Dominican priests in 1596 to serve their Chinese converts to Christianity."
At saan nga ba nagmula ang Binondo? according ulit kay wikipedia "The name "Binondo" is a toponym derived from the archaic spelling of the Tagalog term "binondoc" (modern orthography: binundók), or mountainous, referring to the district's originally hilly terrain.

| According to Travel on Foot Don Roman Ongpin, was a dealer of art supplies. H founded the store El 82 in Calle Rosario on March 1, 1882. The store was frequented by famous artists with the likes of Juan Luna y Novicio, Felix Resurrecion Hidalgo, Fabian dela Rosa and Fernando Amorsolo.
Don Roman became popular among the Filipino-Chinese Community that in 1883 he was appointed teniete de primero meztiso then later as cabeza de barangay.

Don Roman also assisted in the Philippine Revolution. He provided the needed funds, food, and other supplies for the Filipino revolutionaries. He even allowed his store to be used as an outlet for revolutionary propaganda materials. For this reason, he was imprisoned. After his release, during the American period he opened his store and openly supported charities like the La Proteccion de la Infancia (housed in the famous building designed by Arcadio Arellano in 1915 called Gota de Leche).
