Escolta is named after the “Escorts” that are escorting the public officials/politicians before. They happen to shout to call the escorts out. Escolta also have a lot of historical and architectural treasures. It was the center of trade before, and they are trying to revive it. #SelfiEscolta is an event organized to empower the people with knowledge and will to support rebuilding the glory days of Escolta.
First United Building and Regina Building.
Honestly I can’t use photoshop that’s why I can’t remove those black spaghetti like cable wires right there.
Independence Day? No not, but Escolta Day it is! :)
Statement Tees saying:
Because #SelfieEscolta is an awareness event that states that Escolta is one of our most treasured “Calle/Kalye” along with other historical sites in the Philippines.
Old photographs for hipsters and photo-geeks. :)
Books turned into notebook covers :) Sadly I didn’t saw a “Little Prince” notebook cover, it’s my favorite book. If they have one I will surely grab it.
Fan photo with UKULELE PHILIPPINES. :)
"Para Po!" hahahaha who would do that on a Tranvia? (Wait am I right?) :)))) LOL
Love this picturesque banners all over the place. :) Seems legit.
Say hello to my Escolta buddies! Jessa and Daisy. Regina building is on the background. It’s selfie day!
Say hello also to our EYEBAGS! :))
Played along this frame like architectural detail. (Trivia: Did you know that Daniel Padilla’s AMA commercial was taken here, and the Kopiko commercial too! Know that Coffee commercial with smileys. *wink wink*)
…and of course that’s me taking my OOTD. :))
As a whole the event is lots of fun and educational at the same time. I grabbed a pint of chocolate chip ice cream while walking, I’m too busy with my ice cream and I can’t barely take pictures. By the way if you happen to drop by Calle Escolta, make sure to try their ice cream and Empanadas! and have a great time. :)
