After those fun activities in Lucky Chinatown, we went back to Ongpin to visit Dong Bei Dumplings but before that, it is very interesting to note that aside from the festive lion and dragon dances, I’m surprised to see a lot of Cosplayers during that day. I’m a big fan of cosplaying and I have attended numerous cosplay conventions for the past years (but I am not a cosplayer) so I got thrilled seeing some Cosplayers during our trip. I’m not aware of some of the characters they are tryin to portray but I must say that the details of their costumes were built beautifully. So let’s start shall we.
I love how they customized that electric fan cover and convert it into hat
This one reminds me of Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell but in an upgraded Chinese mode heheThis one reminds me of Yoshimitsu of TekkenYou can never go wrong with BatmanOkay these kids are not cosplayers but they are drawing a lot of attention because of their overwhelming cuteness. They are inviting everyone to buy their Siomai.. So cute!The two famous streets in Binondo, the Ongpin and Yuchengco. Aside from the food tripping, your Binondo Trip will not be completed without buying any of the lucky charms. They are being sold almost everywhere! Here are some lucky charms we found during our trip.Monkey Figurines at Php25-50 each. They come in random colors too I am not sure why the monkeys should come in pair but you can see them both holding golden coins and a pineapple on top.Speaking of Pineapple, you’ll find a lot of these lucky charms in Binondo. It is a small pineapple adorned with Dalanghita (tangerine). I know pineapple is a lucky symbol but not so sure why they should be designed like this.
According to the vendor, this should be hang in every doors of each room in your house.bracelet charms and door chimes are a common sight in BinondoDoor charmsbracelet charmsSome more lucky chimesFestive Chinese LanternsThe China town Arch!Another arch located near the Ongpin Bridge
